Some iPhone Cases Are Not For Me

July 4, 2012 · Posted in Technology 

After I see something time after time again, I am of the mindset that I’d become used to whatever subject it is. Whether it’s good or bad, you might get used to it with enough effort. The situation of iPhone cases, though, is one monkey I can’t shake off of my back. One might find it petty that I put so much emphasis on something like this. You may have a valid point but when I see the same cases being used for countless phones, I can’t help but be annoyed.

I don’t want to make the claim that I am a trendsetter, since I don’t think that I follow the trends in today’s society that closely. I am someone who follows what he believes is cool, whether others may not see it that way. I can see where the appeal to trends come from, though, so I am not totally against the idea. Technology can be as trendy as clothes or music, in my opinion. While I may hold a grudge, to an extent, I am not blind to the appeal of trends.

In the instance of iPhone cases, the most common ones that I have seen are the silicone slips that can be found at sites such as i*Luv. I’m almost certain that everyone knows exactly what I’m talking about. These slip covers, to put it simply, come in a litany of colors and I think I’ve seen more than my fair share of eye-bleeding inducing neon yellow and hot pink. More information about these cases and others can be found by checking this site, though you may wonder why I do hold such a vendetta against these.

Take, in this case, “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. To be perfectly honest, I think that this song is actually very good and Adele’s talents speak for themselves. However, my dislike for the song comes from the idea that it’s over-saturated. I’ve seen more than enough covers of this song and its overuse in singing contests that I’ve been to makes it hard to stand. “Rolling in the Deep,” much like these iPhone cases, is overused and the likability is hindered as a result.

To put it plainly, these iPhone cases are simply too common for my tastes. I like it when things are varied since there’s a sense of staleness in the same thing being utilized over and over again. When everyone is different, there’s a sense of intrigue that exists as opposed to when everyone follows the same path. If everyone wanted to be the same kind of person when they grew up, wouldn’t life be rather boring in the long run?
