With Brando beating them to the punch with their iPhone Zoom Lens, how could Griffin retain its dignity and standing as purveyors of needless Apple crap accessories? With their own looking glass realm take on the same concept, stood upon its head: the Clarifi is an iPhone case with a cheap slide-in plastic lens that allows greater clarity for photographing close-up text, which can then be pumped into an OCR program for character recognition. It’s not an amazing innovation in and of itself, but if you’re looking for an iPhone case, you might as well get one that adds some functionality. $34.99.

    I don’t think that Griffin deserves a crapvendor label, the occasional odd acrylic paperweight notwithstanding. Most of their stuff works well; I got a decent set of iPhone buds from them well before Apple started providing them.
