Zune logos on an iPhone case?

Is just a coincidence, or could there be a conspiracy afoot?

Belkin

We doubt that it was done intentionally, but there's probably no shortage of conspiracy freaks out there who will claim that something sinister was behind the design of Belkin's new "Micro Grip" cases for the 3G iPhone. Either way, we do find it curious that it looks like a bunch of interwoven Zune logos.

And regardless of whether your alliances lie with Apple or Microsoft, the design of these cases seem dubious at best from both a practical and aesthetic standpoint. On the practical side, this kind of rubberized webbing appears to defeat the purpose of something that's supposed to supply complete protection; as for the aesthetics, these cases look like they belong on the street strutting their fishnet stockings. Just sayin'.

Outcry over iPhone 'Error 53' and bad USB Type-C cables

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
