    To honor the memory of Steve Jobs, remove your cases from your iPhones today and show the world that you have an Apple product.

    Use your iPhone naked the whole day today, or even part of the day!

    I am.

    We all use cases for various reasons...for signal issues, for looks, or just to be different.

    Let' show off the apple logo today!

    No one cares if they see your Apple logo or not.

    It's nothing to do with Logos. It's beautifully made piece of art that is wonderfully functional....it's a crime to cover it with an ugly bumper.

    While agree, the phone lacks grip so I will be picking up a case for mine from Best Buy today.

    Why not just let those people that really knew him grieve for him in their own private way? I'm sure Steve would rather be remembered for who he really was rather than how much he impacted a corporate stock price. I can't say for sure but I seriously doubt that one's company legacy is foremost in one's mind during one's final days with those people that really matter.

    Love this idea. Be proud we're Apple users. I am. Screw the haters. My iPhone 4 is naked and loving it.

    If it's a crime, arrest Apple. They made it :)

    If I didn't sell my iPhone, it would still be naked.

    Some strange, small minded responses...

    No different than wearing a black armband for something you respect.

    Just show the phone off the way SJ designed/approved it. Put aside you personal feelings for a day.

    Herein lies the fallacy. Today should be about personal feelings for those that knew him *personally*.

    Were it me, I think my family would be insulted if all people remembered about me were the things I did at my day job.

    I think his family would be proud to know that he affected people not just as a human being but for the things he accomplished in his life. He has a great following of people that respected him very much for his visions in the technology world and in other walks of life. Don't assume that his family would be upset that some remember him only for what he invented. That's a great gift that a majority of people will never feel. And for that I'm sure his family is greatful to all of of us.

    I will show off my apple logo today for him. If even out of respect for a great man, one who could be difficult at times, but earn the revered, respectful admiration we all have for him today. Steve inspired people. Put aside your differences and expectations. That's what he would have wanted.

    I'm about to ship off my iPhone for sale tomorrow. I'll find my own way to remember Steve.

    I agree, this is a good idea. Although I don't need to remove my case since it's the Otterbox Commuter with the cutout in the back showing the Apple logo. :D

    RIP Steve. You will be missed. :apple:

    I think people show the world they have an apple product on their own every day, regardless of what happened, and usually in an annoying manner

    I took mine off last night with the same intention! I have had it naked all day and I have to say it so effin' nice. I know I want to protect it and use a bumper, but I'm going to keep it this way for good. Steve helped make this phone beautiful - so I'm with you too, OP. RIP Steve
