    Protection fever... its a million, if not billion dollar industry. It happens all the time especially during post-iDevice launches. Just like how case manufacturers are scrambling to put together their iPhone 5 case offerings... we're out here constantly checking forums, watching YouTube videos, researching for our "perfect" case.

    Family members/significant others start questioning why you would need more than one case... the "buy now, think later" mentally starts to backfire... and before you know it... you have several cases on the way.

    When will enough... be ENOUGH?

    Share your path to protection! :cool:

    Ordered...
    - SGP Ultra Crystal
    - Incipio Feather (returned)
    - Incipio Feather (shipping, will return)

    You sir, are one of many consumers that "buy first, think later" and wonder why your in debt.

    1. Think Logically
    2. Study the Law of Diminishing Marginal Returns
    3. You did not need to make a thread

    I do my research and order one or two and try to check them out at a retail outlet before, if I can.

    Think before you act! (purchasing products, or posting threads)

    Hence the "INTERVENTION" in the title, haha! I just realized how many cases I bought after I posted my list. Maybe I should have gone the AppleCare+ route!

    Hey I just thought it would be a fun thread... poking fun, even. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. FYI, debt-free and have excellent credit. :D

    It was there this morning when I got my order in. I believe they took it down... maybe they sold out of the first batch... I'm not entirely sure. I would check their Twitter/Facebook for any updates.
