I sure am glad that the “Gold & Diamond” case is only $20K.  I hope there are no limits on the number I can preorder.

Kidding.  I’m sure those that can afford this case will be quite happy.

Well, gotta go and continue my search for a $500K car cover for my $28K Jeep Wrangler…wish me luck.

I search and couldn’t find a review of the iPod touch carbon fiber case on iLounge.com. Yet, when I go to the case-mate website (through the link you provided), they have a big “RECOMMENDED BY ILOUNGE” logo.  Did you guys really give this case a good review?  I am curious.
