Apple’s recent offer of free bumper cases for the iPhone 4 is generous. Not as generous as a well engineered phone, but still. The move will cost quite a bit. One analyst had previously speculated that a full hardware recall would set Apple back $1.5B. Apple has announced a figure that is a bit easier to swallow.

The free bumper cases for the iPhone 4 will cost the company $175 million. But one still has to ask, how does such an engineering snafu get past Apple in the first place? One wonders if they were trying to save money for some reason. This whole issue is very unlike Apple.

Street legal Bumper Cars look awesome
Remember having fun at the amusement park when you were a kid and riding around in the bumper cars? Apparently, it’s a whole big thing to modify bumper cars so they’re street legal. Awesome idea, but would I be able to fight the urge to bump and shove others? Probably not.

They use a Kawasaki 750cc motorcycle engine for power, which allows them to reach sidestreet speeds. For some ungodly and unexplainable reason, they cost $50,000 to modify them so they’re street legal! That is bizarre. How is that possible when there is so little car involved?
