The iPhone more than the sum of its many parts, but when the part in question is the touch-screen itself, and workers at the manufacturer's Suzhou, China facility go on strike, we have to wonder what that will do for supplies in the medium term?

More than 2,000 workers gathered and damaged facilities and vehicles after rumors that the factory may not pay a planned bonus for 2009, the [21st Century Business Herald] said, citing the statement.

Otterbox Commuter, Commuter TL for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

If in previous years you found yourself thinking Otterbox's tank-style Defender was too much armor, and their Impact just not quite tank-like enough, at CES 2010 they showed TiPb a middle-ground that some of you might find just right -- the Commuter series.

In both regular and TL (translucent, a reference to the clear strip across the back) versions, they're aiming it squarely at the urban warrior who wants as much protection as possible while still maintaining a slim, pocketable profile.

Check it out on video, after the break!

Case-Mate Go Bare for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

After being Barely There last year, at CES 2010 TiPb wanted to know how much slimmer Case-Mate could go -- turns out they could go Bare. You read that right, one of the big products on display for Case-Mate in 2010 was their entry into the iPhone skin market, and the twist is their version doesn't require any application liquid, you just peel and apply.
