Who would've thought there would ever be an entire industry based on shaping plastic, rubber and assorted other materials into shapes with big holes in? If an iPhone 6 case is all that survives us, if future archaeologists dig one up from the ground, they are going to concoct some seriously strange ideas of what we were like. Mind you, that's their problem. Ours is that iPhones are expensive, and they can be damaged. One of us just got an iPhone 6, so one of us just got an Incipio NGP case for it.
