Protect your iPhone with the Playstation nostalgic look

Protect your iPhone with the Playstation nostalgic look
There's a lot of heated competition between Sony and Apple. Both have been taking away market share from each other since the dawn of time. Sony has a grasp on the video game market with its mix of consoles and high quality games while Apple has been making a push with developers for creating fresh games on the iPhone. Sony was the pioneer in portable music with the Walkman dominating sales during its heyday. Apple has taken control of it with the iPod and does not seem to relinquish it any time soon. We all know how popular iTunes became by offering music downloads while Sony's Connect Music Store failed to live up to expectations. So how is it that this iPhone accessory beautifully mends two great products into one? You'll definitely start up some talk after removing your iPhone from this Playstation One case. Not only does it replicate the original great 32bit gaming system, you can add the original DualShock controller with it. Of course it'll protect your prized phone while at the same time give it that charm. You can have it for $20 for the case alone with the optional DualShock controller for $7. It looks like this item is pretty popular with the masses because it's sold out for right now.

can the company who makes this case get sued by Sony for using their name and logo without permission? (that is, im guessing Sony has nothing to do with this case)

What would be funny if Sony has everything to do with this case... and the case's started "Failing or falling apart" breaking everyone's Iphones and Ipod Touches. Lol. It's probably Sony's plan all along with free advertising.

I wouldnt have a problem with this article if not for the glaring historical inacurracies. "Both have been taking away market share from each other since the dawn of time. Sony has a grasp on the video game market with its mix of consoles and high quality games while Apple has been making a push with developers for creating fresh games on the iPhone." - Two COMPLETELY different markets so that made no sense. "We all know how popular iTunes became by offering music downloads while Sony's Connect Music Store failed to live up to expectations" - Again you are comparing an allinone mp3/movie/ebook service meant for multiple devices not just portable devices to a manufacturer specialized ota mp3 service, two different things. Well all that and the pointlessness of this article, will we see articles for a cover based on EVERY VIDEO GAME system from now??

Sony vs. Apple. Strange. Never really pictures them as competitors in my head. It's like saying that Nintendo and Nokia have been at each other's throats for years. Nintendo with their wildly popular "Wii" console, and Nokia with their phone that plays a few games. Death match!

not direct competitors but companies competing for their own wealth and reputation......go to school and learn some economics then come back to your blogging
