iPhone = Combat Rock or Born To Run?

Looking around at who has the first iPhones in Manhattan, I see duchebags of all stripes. Inevitably they have wrapped their new purchase in some lame "protector" instead of just letting cool industrial design be.

Pink leatherette cases? Ugh.

This is the moment when the band you love comes out with a record that the jocks like too. A friend said "Combat Rock" in answer to this formulation.

Of course this is better than being a "beleagured computer maker". And even after The Clash and Bruce Springsteen started playing arenas, they were still (insanely) great.
