|"As if we don't have enough trouble finding a misplaced phone, now the want to make them transparent!

|"I was thinking just the same thing. It's bad enough to lose your smartphone in the seat cushions of your sofa; now you can lose it right on top of the sofa. Or on a table, for that matter."

|"There was also a transparent cell phone in last year's movie "Robot and Frank", though I could not find an image."

|"I somehow missed that film at the theater. Perhaps another reader has captured an image; I can't find one either. This is an excerpt from a review:
'The moment that first captured us during "Robot and Frank" was when Frank (Frank Langella) pulled out his cell phone. Shaped like an iPhone but transparent with a translucent image of the person talking we knew we were somewhere in the future. The next clue was when Frank's children called, Madison (Liv Tyler) and Hunter (James Marsden) when he answered via voice and an image projected on the wall reminding one of a Skype call.'
(Review: Robot and Frank at the Los Angeles Film Festival 2012)"
