Game Boy iPhone Case
I remember Christmas of 1990 - I was a wee lad of 7 years old and video games were the one and only things on my mind. We had the coveted Nintendo Entertainment System from a previous Christmas and had worn the thing out playing games like Zelda, Punch-Out, Mario Brothers, Maniac Mansion, De Ja Vu, Duck Hunt, Paperboy, and many many more. It was a great time to be a kid and we had no idea what could possibly beat that Christmas. On that Christmas morn of '90, my brothers and I got up at the usual yuletide time of about 5am, and fell asleep by the presents until our parents woke up a couple hours later. When it was finally time to open the presents, I had no idea what would await me in a small box with my name on it. What I thought was a grey brick actually turned out to be one of my favorite gifts of all time - the Nintendo Game Boy. It was a bulky grey hand held gaming device with a monochrome screen and poor sound. But it was the hottest thing on the market and I had it. It came with one game - Tetris - and I was glue to that little screen for the next 12 months.
Fast-forward 19 years, and now I've got an iPhone 3G. With its touchscreen, phone, camera, email, texting, internet, applications, and games it makes the Game Boy look pretty lame. But the Game Boy will always hold a special place in my heart. It must hold a special place in someone else's heart, too, because someone's created a Game Boy iPhone 3g case. I must have it.
