When you test as many cases as I do, you've got to expect a little collateral damage every once and a awhile. I've totally smashed my iPhone during drop tests, taken iPhones and iPads through the car wash and the dishwasher. I've tried to send them into orbit on model rockets and to the deep blue depths beneath toy race boats. I've sledded on them and wailed on them. I've even worn them in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fights and taken them on trips back to the future.
This time... well, I just couldn't get the damn case off! And yes, misery for me, and hilarity for you, followed.
