3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 25 April 2014
I was looking forward to reading this following the Steve Jobs biography, but I was sorely disappointed. In comparison it was like viewing a room through a keyhole as opposed to being in that room - it was clearly apparent that the research had been completely achieved through third-parties and other articles, with little real insight into Jony himself - there are suppositions and assumptions but it lacked the depth that having access to the man himself would have achieved. In all it was a bit superficial and a hotch-potch of facts, supposed facts and assumptions.

I did find an inaccuracy around dates which reinforced by opinion of the book - pg 58 before joining Apple he was stated as being 26 years old, on pg 62 he joins Apple and is now 25.

It's OK as a read but nowhere near the read the Steve Jobs biography is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good case for price, product photo deceptive, 14 Oct. 2010
For the price this case is very good. Easy to fit, fits well, and you get good value for money.

However, it does look the price you pay really. The picture provided makes it look a little 'classier' in my opinion - the photo indicates a "two tone" grey/black appearance but this is not the case (no pun intended). The greyish colour in the product photo is in fact matt black. Perhaps the description indicates this. Don't like the raised rim around the Apple logo, would have preferred this bevelled or smooth, just a bit less fussy.

The case in the main fits well. I expect most cases in this plastic material will be a bit flimsy on the upper bottom edge due to the amount of material, and this occurs with this case.

Overall it's a good case, in fact a great case for the price paid.

1.0 out of 5 stars There's a reason for six of each side in a packet ..., 14 Oct. 2010
Bought these to apply to my brand new iPhone 4, which still had the factory-packed clear covers on. First attempt I mucked up completely, so tried again. And again, and again etc. etc. - every single time I was not happy with the way the protectors went on in terms of either there was a speck of 'something' caught under the film (there merest dot of dust affected the film fit in my opinion), or the edges on one side or corner did not go down exactly to the edge. Between every attempt I cleaned the surface again with the cloth provided and it was done in a dust-free room. The cardboard tool was used every time to carefully try to get rid of air bubbles.

I managed to get one on the front eventually that I am 90% happy with - the top edge is still not entirely down to the edge, and one on the back which went on well. The others went in the bin, so it took the whole packet to get coverage I'm 90% happy with.

One thing I can say is that no residue is left on the surface after taking off the film. I was expecting so much more. Are all film protectors like this, did I get a bad batch, or do I need to set up a sterile room, wear silicone gloves and a mask to fit these well?
