What have you always wondered about the economy? Tell Us

New iPhone, new iPhone!!!

Steve Henn Jul 28, 2011

The Apple fanboy press is whipping itself into an ecstatic frenzy this morning. The reason? Photos of a new case for the iPhone 5 (aka El Cinco) have been found roaming free in the wild! And this case totally would not fit the existing iPhone.

I know it’s soooo exciting. Deep breaths.

It will be thinner! And tapered!!!!! And Whiter! (Okay I actually made that last part up. See – you actually can’t tell what the the color of the phone will be by looking at a photo of a leaked case.)
