Apple iPhone 4 case can stop a 50 caliber slug from putting a hole in your phone

In case you're worried that someone is going to shoot at your Apple iPhone 4, a new 5 pound armored case for the device offers 1 inch of thick steel for protection; the front remains exposed because of the touchscreen, but the back armor can stop a 50 caliber bullet...

I wonder who is this "targeted" at cause sombody spent alot of time and money pluse must have a cnc machine or something that would machine it out for this project. If I really wanted to make this I am sure I could make it for cheaper than 650 dollars by a long shot. I also would think if I had snipers shooting at me with a fifty cal I would worry more about body armor. Also if this thing got shot while in your uhhhh pocket it would or could still completely destroy limbs and kill you. I think I will wait for the space case.

I'm hoping everybody here realizes that's a crock.
50 cal bullets penetrate tanks even if magically the iphone doesn't get harmed the person holding it will

I'm actually working on a similar new case for the iPhone, but it's better than this. It has 1-foot of lead on all four sides, and is kept 500ft below the surface of the Earth. It will allow your iPhone to withstand a bunker buster bomb being lobbed at it. Additionally, it will protect your phone from fallout in the event of a nuclear blast.

Once I release it, you'll realize the folly of exposing your phone to potential conventional and nuclear blast risks. It'll be well worth the cost to keep your iPhone secure.

I'd rather spend that money on a bulletproof vest than a ridiculous bulletproof iPhone case. And who the hell would want to assassinate an iPhone???

Because thin phones are just too mainstream for these iPhone hipsters.
