>A Mustang looks a lot different than my Jeep. Why?

And your Jeep obviously copied my Mustang's steering wheel, with its rounded
edges and all. In order to avoid unconscionable similarity, you must apply razor
edges or spikes -- at least 3 of them--to all future steering wheel designs.

Width of the phone would be determined by the mid point of the bell curve
of comfortable width for the human hand across the range of human hand
size and length by a similar bell curve for optimal separation between a speaker
and mirophone with a screen in between.

As the range of comfortable hand width will be less than that of the speaker to microphone
distance rectangular shape is a necessity with a minimal form factor.

Radical changes to the design would require re-engineering humans.
