“Grand” Theft: The “I Am Rich” Of iPhone Cases

This image described by iPhone, Softbank, case, Japan_texture_iphone_3-620x265

To paraphrase P.T. Barnum, there's an overpriced geegaw born every minute — and two nouveau riche dolts to spend way too much on it.

How else to describe SoftBank's "Japan Texture" special-edition iPhone cases?  Beautiful, yes.  Hand-crafted, apparently.  Culturally and historically-significant designs?  To those in Godzilla-land, it would appear.

The price?  Oh, 99,800 yen.

Um, that's US$1049.26 at current market levels.  That's right, a thousand bucks for a cell phone case.
