Gizmodo earns geek cred elite by getting the one and only (unless he's figured out how to clone himself) Bill Nye, the Science Guy, to explain just how the iPhone 3GS' oleophobic coating works -- molecularly -- to reduce smudges and make it super easy to wipe clean.

We don't understand a word of it, of course (something about Drow magic maybe?) but do head on over and give it a read!
