I just had an accident and broke my MacBook's screen. It still works (there are no "dead" pixels), but I'm worried that some of the broken pieces might fall from the screen. Is there any product could I use to prevent that from happening?

Something like tape? – squircle Feb 16 '11 at 1:38
At this point, nothing can make my screen beautiful once again, but I wondered whether there was something that wouldn't make my screen as utterly ugly as tape would. – pyon Feb 16 '11 at 1:40
I don't suppose you can take a picture? – William Hilsum Feb 16 '11 at 1:53

I use tape.

A whole screen cover with adhesive (not static cling) (like perhaps the ivisor) might work a little better. Since you won't have a bunch of overlapping pieces. – Tyler Feb 16 '11 at 1:58
@Tyler: Well, if the screen is well and truly broken, there's not much you can do anyways. – Hello71 Feb 16 '11 at 2:18
It ain't fixed good 'n' proper unless you use duct tape. – Dennis Williamson Feb 19 '11 at 5:52
