      • On-fire;

        That's funny, I saw the same thing this afternoon and was going to post but went out to dinner first. So XGear-Krystal sapphire screen protector offer got to halfway ($5K) of its minimum target for manufacturing, that being $10K.

        This Krystal thing has been moving pretty slow since you and I bought a week ago. I've been somewhat skeptical that it will hit the $10K target by the deadline of May 8th; and subsequently a little disappointed in the market response to this amazing product. But as I look at the website this evening, it's up to 99 backers and $5220 pledged. That's a pretty good day of pledges. If we have more like today we'll make that $10K target. I hope so because I definitely want to play with one of these screens to see if the sapphire product is really as good as I think it is.

        Since I was a worried about the offer, I thought I'd look into whether it was priced right or way out in left field. I did a search on “Iphone 5 screen protector” and came up with anything from cheap plastic screens to the GLAS.tR tempered glass version which runs $30 - $35 dollars. And as the Krystal video shows, the glass still scratches with rocks and sandpaper so $50 for sapphire is looking like a pretty good deal.
