As I suspected, Steve Jobs today, just 20 miles from here, offered free "bumpers" to all iPhone 4 owners, or a choice of cases to be named later. I had planned to buy a case the first day, but Apple had none, and Best Buy was sold out. Apparently this was because Apple didn't trust case makers to keep the phone a secret, so they didn't have time to manufacture enough of them. I've been thinking that maybe I would not bother. After all, the aluminized glass is pretty tough. However, I can't keep from holding the magic spot. I've also noticed that the glass back is so smooth that it slides off other smooth surfaces. So I will gladly accept the free case, thank you.
