Behold the $1.00 Iphone Case

Yes I know this has been circulating around the interwebs for sometime, but in case you missed here it is! The iPhone Recession Case from Case-Mate which can be purchased for only 1 dollar/4 quarters/20 nickels or 100 pennies! Pretty amazing deal if I do say so myself.

I am and have been an iPhone user since the first generation phone and I absolutely adore my phone, but the one the problem I have always had was shelling out $30+ for a plastic case that I know someone has made for a quarter. Yes it is important to protect our phone, but do we really need to be taken advantage of?! Alright enough ranting and raving and on with the some pretty hilarious specs:
