I bought my 4GB iPhone way back on June 29th, 2007, release day for the US. Upon removing it from its box, all shiny and smooth, I thought, "I need a case for this thing."

While we are still waiting for the iPhone's killer accessories to show up, this week sees a few items worth mentioning drop on our desks.
