iPhone Case - Choose Carefully...

February 10, 2019

Today's smartphones are so thin and fragile that the need to protect them from daily use makes a #smartphone case a compulsory buy, which if we think about it defeats the purpose of buying a slick phone as we always have to use a bulky case!


However, smartphone case manufacturers (perhaps eager to distinguish themselves in what seems to be a competitive market) are creating inappropriate cases make everyone else believe that the smartphone is something else entirely, when it is 'wittily' concealed in a pocket.


The most preposterous example of this type of case is one that resembles a gun!  I have seen it on display a couple of times, and I couldn't tell what was more disturbing; the fact that the manufacturer decided that a phone should be concealed as a gun in these days of false alarms and terrorism fears, or someone that wants to play a #joke not realising that he is in fact annoying everyone while making himself a target for the police!


I wouldn’t say I was #surprised when a couple of weeks later I read that one fool got into trouble with the police at London Stansted Airport because he was carrying that same iPhone case in his back pocket in such a way that it didn't look like an #iPhone case at all!


On #Twitter, the Police published a picture of it saying bluntly "Bringing this to an airport makes it much less likely you'll catch your plane.", and adding the hashtag #dontbedaft.


Unfortunately there are lots of daft people out there not using common sense and thinking they’re clever!
