Which type of iPhone user are you? One that uses a case or one that doesn't? I fall in to the last group. I used to be a fanatic about scratches and keeping my device as pristine as possible. I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point I quit caring. That doens't mean [...]

CoreCases is probably not a company that you're familiar with yet. If their current offerings are any indication, that won't be the 'case' for very long.
