A lot of people were initially disappointed when Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S instead of the iPhone 5 last October 4. Personally, I think all that disappointment could have been avoided if people reigned in the rumor talks prior to the launch. There were literally dozens of new rumors being spread all over the web each day as October 4 drew closer–and while Apple could’ve issued a little press release to cut down the chatter just a little bit, they didn’t, in true Apple fashion. (But if you think about it, more rumors probably would’ve surfaced had they said something, so maybe it was a no-win situation then.)
The world woke up to sad news on October 5th when Apple announced the passing of Steve Jobs. He may not have been a man who a lot of people agreed or saw eye to eye with, but almost everyone who knew and worked with him have said that he was truly one of a kind.

Every year since 2007, Apple has unveiled a new version of their iPhone, from the original iPhone to the iPhone 3G, 3Gs, and iPhone 4. Well, every year except for this one, that is. Rumors about the iPhone 5 began as early as a few months after the release of the iPhone 4. However, speculation is particularly rife nowadays, with leakages, controversies, and even more rumors on the latest model of Apple’s smartphone cropping up every other day.
When Apple first announced that they had a smartphone in the works, the world waited with bated breaths for its release. Four (but soon to be five) generations later, the iPhone is still the most popular smartphone out there that has managed to attract a huge and fanatical following. Of course, it’s to be expected that something so popular will probably spawn the production of related gadgets and stuff, like accessories, sleeves, and–our favorite–cases.
You’ve probably already seen the plain old generic silicone and leather cases, but have you seen the ones that are born from wacky minds and free-spirited imaginations that require more than just a second (or third) glance because they’re just that strange or creative or just plain weird?
