I really was sure I wouldn't like the iPhone 5c because of my anti-platic bias, but you are right: the quality seemed quite good. I didn't buy one though.

Though plastic word is not synonymus with quality and durability but plastic is fast becoming a choice of material due to inexpensive, non-degradable, flexible, weight etc properties. But when say plastic then it may not always be the old stinky and ultra-cheap quality products.

The more things change, the more they stay the same! Your reference back to the line from The Graduate is great!

I have a real bias against plastics, because of the poor environmental track record of these materials. What's the implication in terms of sustainability around increased use of plastics?
