Yuppie cellphone-style iPhone case comes to Blighty

The bricks are back in town

Security for virtualized datacentres

Are you the type who wants to stand out from the modern iPhone user, yet refuses to use a different device? Then why not jump in the DeLorean and take it back to the 1980s with this yuppie-style iPhone case?

The 80s phone from Thumbs Up wraps any iPhone 3, 3GS or 4 in a mound of plastic until just the screen remains, giving passers-by the impression you're stuck in a time warp as a Thatcherite go-getter.

You could even complement your new brick with a stripey shirt and a fine pair of bright red braces then crank up the Sinclair C5 for added effect.

80's Phone

Hello? HELLLO? Sell everything!

The 80's Phone will be available in black for £13 - loadsamoney, NOT - when it goes on sale in March. Luvly Jubbly. ®
