Ken, “Gallery in Greenville, SC” was saying that it SHOULD be $20, not that it is…

Looks like more people are trying to build their lives around the iPhone. Wow, a game controller? LOL

I mite get this for my 32GB maroon colored iPhone when they come out, ;)
Oh, wait, I forgot it’s $50, nvm…

Someone at Marware must have some really good drugs if they think this will sell.

Makes one of the most beautiful pieces of hardware hideously ugly?  Check.

Costs the same as two decent cases?  Check.

Adds zero functionality (like some buttons or a D-pad)?  Check.

Complete waste of time and money?  Checkmate!
