Cute, cheap iPhone 4 mod: use modeling clay on the corners

Don’t feel like spending the $30 on a nice case for your new iPhone — or maybe just want to be different? A little of this Sugru modeling clay may be the solution. Just make a few little nubbins, let it dry overnight, and boom, your iPhone is now protected from quite a lot of the common bumps and dings that tend to shatter iPhones.

Pro tip: this technique works for any flat, fragile object.
