I will have to say that this is one article that I might need rewrite, but it is something that I am surprised has not really taken off. It is about the Whoosh 3D, a screen protector for the iPhone, and it soon will be available for other products as well.
You heard me right, I said 3D. Remember 7 years ago when Avatar was really popular, and audiences were so impressed by its 3D nature? I will have to admit, the film might only be mediocre and the story is unoriginal, but at least the 3D sucked people in.

I am told that you can get the Whoosh 3D for smartphones for about $29.99-$34.99, and I am told it can be purchased for tablets for $59.99. The 3D app is free, and you can get more information about it here.
