And a weird bumpy exterior

Can I be on the committee that names the colors for cars and tech? Samsung's new Galaxy comes in "shimmery white, electric blue, and copper gold." It also has other features

Copper gold? C'mon. Get creative. What's next, "Cyan aquamarine?" And isn't "electric blue" a bit passe? Not going to catch up to the iPhone if you just phone it in, Samsung. At least "shimmery white" is nice and ridiculous, like Fitzgerald describing Daisy.

Here are some future color names you can use, Samsung.

Billowy pink yoga mat
Effervescent fuchsia vitamin water
Deveined prawn peach
Roasted coffee bean brown
Sorry jerk who ate all of my tikka masala black and blue
Blood diamond
Bottom of a Steel Reserve tall can silver
Broken family macaroni art yellow
MaxiPad commercial liquid blue
