    Why does this make you awesome your eyes? Apple is the easiest company to be an early adopter with. Unless it's flat out broken due to your own negligence (like the screen of my 1st Gen iPhone), I've always gotten support from them, in or out of warranty. My Time Capsule went tits up a couple of months ago (the well reported power supply issue) and one call to Apple Care and this well out of warranty item was replaced within 24 hours.

    I know it's been the trend to hate Apple lately, and everyone goes all Michael Moore on absolutely everything they say, (and in so many cases, what they don't say) but c'mon guys, this is a company that has a superior track record of standing behind their products. If their is a legit problem with the iPhone 4 hardware, they are going to rectify it. Relax, enjoy the stuff you spent your hard earned money on and see what comes.

    Life is way to short to get this worked up over something so relatively insignificant in the greater scope of things. And my god, don't get me started on the amount of time spent complaining by those that don't even own it yet. You've gotta have some serious emptiness in your world to dedicate that much of your life to a product you don't even own.
    Couldn't agree more!!!! Very well said!!

    i like that it feels rubbery. it also provides grip if its in your pocket so it doesnt come flying out.

The only time something could be touching your phone with a bumper on is when the phone is in your pocket.

    I mean, it's not rocket science. Yes, it's expensive but it's a pretty damn good case that doesn't hide the phone whe giving you protection from falls and scratches.
    True...but...

    Not saying it doesn't protect at all, just saying I'd feel a lot safer with an OtterBox case

    Well that's just a silly comparison. I'm sure an otterbox could get runner over by a tank and the phone would be fine.

    They're a bit too bulky for my tastes though I admit I haven't seen their new selection for the i4

    yea, the otterbox is a damn tank. my buddy had it on his old 3g. i would never be able to carry around that...it defeats the whole purpose of the phone being slim. I can only see using that if your like a damn construction worker....or a complete klutz lol.

    They're actually not as bulky as you think for the iPhone 4. And there's a "Impact" series which is just about as thick as the rest

    And even if you think it's still too bulky, any case which fully encloses the iPhone would outperform the bumper case, IMO

    After speaking with a few genuis reps at the Apple Store last night they claim Steve Jobs will not be the one making the announcement today. Is that possible?

    If you Google today's announcement, you will get 4,671 news articles on it. I think that's a bit more credible than some genius. Unless Steve-o bails out, we'll have a conference

    No the conference is on, they just all claim they've heard he will not be the one presenting at the press conference.

    Some do, but there's no proof. I would expect him to come though

    I actually work in construction and I've yet to get a case for it. Then again, I don't do construction itself, just the engineering part of it but I am in construction sites 80% of the time. I actually use my phone to take pictures and mark locations with gps.

    My phone at the end of the day ends up covered in soil, grout, concrete you name it. I've yet to get a scratch on it :P

    I think 4G will fix that problem for Verizon when they roll it out, if I heard correctly

    EDIT: CNN just posted this in the front page

    On Friday, Steve Jobs and his Cupertino, California-based company hope to set things to rights with a news conference expected to address the drumbeat of complaints, and bad press, about the iPhone 4's antenna.

    I can almost guarantee this is not the case. I ran my phone through the clothes washer the nighet I got it (launch day). They were sold out of ohone the following day, but the replaced mine for me from a replacement stock. The replacement box was a small, thin, padded, black box with nothing more than a UPC on it. I am sure they will dot he same with these phones. They don't just go and open a new product and pull the phone out of the box and give it to you like big box stores might.
