lol.... Sik, I love the Star Trek reference. That takes me back... In fact that is one of my favorite episodes.

I am beginning to see what you mean about the dummy phone. It did not turn on, but had a static image of blinkfeed. I kept playing with the suface trying to figure out how they got the image to do that. It looked real, but you could make no changes to the screen nor could you turn it on or off. I thought it had to be a sticker on the front of the glass, but it was not. I guess I should have pulled that delaminating part all the way off to see if there was a speaker below. The lack of attention from any of the BB staff ... well they never would have noticed.
