“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 18 – Belkin Grip Ergo iPhone case - Macenstein

“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 18 – Belkin Grip Ergo iPhone case

This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Matthew.

On the Eighteenth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) The Grip Ergo iPhone case from the good folks at Belkin!

Belkin Grip Ergo iPhone case

Above: why does this case remind me of the movie DUNE?

OK, let’s be honest here. At this point, if you don’t own an iPhone, you’re pretty much a loser. No no, don’t give me any crap about you’re waiting for Verizon to get the iPhone… trust me. AT&T is fine, and besides, once you get the iPhone you’ll be so busy playing with it you won’t have time to make calls, let alone have them dropped for poor service.

And speaking of dropping calls, as anyone who’s ever dropped their iPhone and experienced that moment of “HOLY S–T!” panic that seems to last far longer than that 32 ft/s2 equation would have you believe knows, you need a case. And what better case than one with such a gripable surface that the very idea of ever dropping your phone becomes laughable? Enter the Grip Ergo, from Belkin.

Protect your iPhone with a snug layer of rugged silicone. Ergonomic design lets you text, game, and surf the web comfortably. Contoured ridges provide maximum grippability of your iPhone

I’m not sure when “grippability” became a word, but I think it was around the time beer makers started using “drinkability”.

To enter: Speaking of “ability”, we love asking this question each year – leave us a comment telling us If you could have ONE super ability, what would it be? The ability to fly, read minds, change water into iPhones? What? Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world-wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!
