Yesterday I posted about the iPhone Game Pad, a case that adds buttons to your iPhone for gaming. Earlier today its designer told me his inspiration was the Game Boy - or rather, playing emulated Game Boy games on his iPhone.
Then this afternoon, not half an hour after the latter interview went live, I received a package in the post. Inside were the three Game Boy iPhone covers you can see pictured right.
Had some PR person seen my posts and thought, "Hey, let's send our product samples to Kotaku!" I could understand it. I might even be impressed by how quick off the mark they were.
But these Game Boy iPhone covers were sent to me from the United States. Medford, MA, to be precise. And they were mailed out on July 28, a week before I'd even heard of the iPhone Game Pad, let alone covered it.
So, yeah... how did they know?
