The White iPhone Is/Isn't Thicker than the Black iPhone

At first we thought the white whale iPhone 4 was a fatty fatty fat fat compared to its black counterpart, but now Consumer Reports has whipped out the "lab-quality" calipers and says—gasp!—the two are exactly the same. BUT...


Engadget says otherwise! Scoffing at CR's scientific caliper test, which found the two colors to be exactly 0.370 inches thick, Engadget deployed the highly scientific "floating straw thing" test, which indicates the white version is a infinitesimally porkier. Is CR using defective calipers? Is Engadget's floaty straw thing bent? Should anyone give a shit? The only answer we can provide is to the last question, and the answer is no.
