No boring, off-the-shelf, aftermarket case for this ex-Marine with a penchant for doing things his way. “The beautiful thing about the iPhone as a platform is that every iPhone is different from a software standpoint (apps) and music/photos standpoint,” says Dave. “All the covers, though, are
pretty much the same: you can change the color but a protective cover is a protective cover…not mine!”
You know things have changed dramatically from the early days of smartphone adoption when people carried them around like expensive jewels (because they were). Now they are omnipresent and utilitarian enough to get do-it-yourself duct taped just like shoe soles, hammer handles, torn gloves…. For me, it’s more proof of the new normal--of the ubiquity of technology and how tightly it has become integrated into our daily lives.
