Being a perfectionist isn't easy. But when it comes to making a waterproof iPhone case, it's a requirement. That's why it was nice to see that personality in the folks from LifeProof. I met them at MacWorld in January 2011, and they showed me a prototype of their upcoming iPhone 4 case. It was waterproof, dirtproof, shockproof, and even snowproof, hence the name "LifeProof." I have seen and tried other waterproof cases before, but they were much bulkier and they obstructed the various ports, so you had to fully remove the case to charge them.
