President Obama signed the E-Label Act into law on Wednesday, which will give phone and other device makers the ability to label their hardware electronically rather than with stickers or graphics. By law, devices such as phones require labels from the FCC and other organizations proving the can be sold in the U.S. With device sizes shrinking, industry representatives asked for a change to the law as it became more and more difficult to make sure the labels were included without impacting device appearance. The Senate approved the measure in September and the House approved it earlier this month.

E Label

So if you're screen is broken you're out of luck? I mean Apple is the blueprint for this new law. You look at an iPhone and you have no idea how much storage capacity the device has without going into the settings. Personally I like labels on phones to make it easy to identify. Seems like they want to go to the Apple model where you can't tell anything about the phone just looking at it. That's a bad example to follow and I'm sick of everyone copying Apple and their bad ideas. I guess they think less information to the consumer is better.
....With device sizes shrinking...
This has to be the most stupid statement I ever heard...
