Apple and House of Marley have joined forces for a limited time to promote the children's charity Little Kids Rock.
House of Marley, the lifestyle accessory company formed by Bob Marley's offspring, Rohan Marley, brings to market an original, earth-friendly and conscientous brand of quality gear. House of Marley is already recognized for it's charitable works and environmentally responsible business model, annually giving 5% of their profits to the 1Love Foundation, which was formed by Bob Marley's wife Rita. Now, and for the rest of October, Apple is proudly featuring House of Marley audio products and carry bags in the Apple store. Together, they are "doubling the love" and doubling the ammount donated to charity. Through the month of October, 10% of House of Marley's profits from Apple store sales will be donated to the charity Little Kid's Rock, which serves to bring musical intruments and music education to under-served schools and students.
Today the CEO of Lifeproof, Gary Rayner, addressed the leigons of Lifeproof fans who are eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone 5 Lifeproof waterproof and shockproof case. Even though the iPhone 5 became available almost a month ago, Lifeproof's award-winning case design has yet to go on sale for the new device. Read on after the break for Rayner's message.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that Apple has ordered as many as 10 million units of the as-yet-unconfirmed, iPad mini. This information comes on the heels of CNN's Fortune reporting to us that invitations to the iPad mini's media event will be sent out on October 10th, heralding an October 17th product unveiling, with the iPad mini becomming available by early November.
Time for my game reviews of some of the latest and best newcomers to the App Store! We have a whole slew of new games with more on the way, so let’s take a minute to recap what we have so far. These are a few of my favorites of the new crop of games that have popped up in the App Store! This week's reviews include the smash-hit Apocalypse Max as well as new endless runners, Zaxxon Escape and Amazing Runner.
Feast your eyes on these latest images...
The folks at Gizmodo (courtesy of designer Martin Hajek) have published the latest renderings of the upcoming iPad mini based on leaked images, details and specs. The iPad mini promises to not only be one of the best tablets on the market, mini or otherwise, but it also seems like it will be the most elegantly beautiful. Maybe I'm biased, as a lifelong Apple loyalist, but I think most of you would have to agree with me when you look at the images here, that Apple hasn't just released a product that represents a masterpiece of craftsmanship and technology, but also looks like pure eye-candy!
Look out, there's a new contender for title of Best Rugged iPhone Case.
I first wrote about the TAKTIK case a few months ago when it was still gestating in Kickstarter phase. Well, the TAKTIK is finally available to purchase, and wow, is it ever a great case! Indeed, the TAKTIK is one of the best rugged iPhone cases you will find!
The TAKTIK extremely rugged case for the iPhone by LUNATIK is one of the best heavy-duty cases for the iPhone available. Perhaps one of its most unique and outstanding features is the option to have a super-thin, genuine Gorilla Glass screen protector pre-installed. There's no shortage of rugged-protection iPhone cases on the market that come equipped with an integrated, plastic screen protector, but I have to say, offering this case with a Gorilla Glass screen protector is pure genius. Never before has any protective case included such an option and what a welcome innovation it is!
I for one, can't wait for the new iPad mini to be released. I'm banking on a device that comes with a 3G-capable option (and hopefully Siri too, if not a Retina display), and I already have plans to put it to good use.
I'm taking it camping, I'm using it to write my blogs and articles, I'm using it to make my phone calls
, I'm using it to play video games, to take pictures, make videos, create illustrations and more... I just hope good cases become available soon (I'm sure they will) and that the pockets on my cargo pants are big enough, because I'm going to be carrying the iPad mini around with me everywhere
What can we expect to see revealed when the iPad mini is unveiled? Well, we won't know for sure until Apple plays their hand on the world stage, but we will find out soon enough. The iPad mini is due to become available around the end of this month, likely somewhere between 10/29 and 11/2. Just in time for the holiday season, and also just in time to give Google’s Nexus and Amazon’s Kindle a good trouncing, which I'm sure is part of Apple’s game plan.
continues in their tradition of excellence with the new and improved Defender
series for the iPhone 5.
The new iPhone 5 is definitely the toughest iPhone version yet! That doesn't mean it can't be scuffed, scratched or get broken. To insure the safety and longevity of your iPhone 5 a good case can make all the difference, especially if you happen to be rough on your iPhone for any reason.
To the rescue comes the Otterbox Defender. Whether you are a bit clumsy by nature or a nature enthusiast by choice, from the city to the outback, the Otterbox Defender will give your iPhone 5 some of the best protection available.
Many of you are already familiar with the Otterbox Defender series. It's been one of the most popular and successful cases for the iPhone, widely available in major retail outlets around the world. And now, with the introduction of their newest Version of the Defender, Otterbox has improved upon what was already an excellent product.
House Of Marley makes an ever-expanding line up of excellent products. Not only do they make high-quality accessories that function exquisitely, but also, their commitment to providing us with the best products, produced in the most eco-friendly manner is respectable and commendable.
I'm a big fan of House Of Marley, in part because of their business ethic and in part because of their precision crafted, well-functioning tech-tools. The House Of Marley catalog is filled with stylish, colorful, expressive and practical gear and accessories for your iLife. From the Bag Of Rhythm to the Lively Up backpack, you can rest assured that when you choose House Of Marley, you are choosing a product that raises the bar for “cool”, while also leaving a minimalistic environmental footprint.
Today's review features House Of Marley’s Zion, noise-isolating in-ear headphones.
As Bob Marley sings: "Give Thanks And Praises!" And indeed, today is a day for doing just that!
If you follow me online (Click HERE or HERE for more on House Of Marley), you likely already know that House Of Marley is one of my favorite developers of iOS accessories and gear out there. Taking the Honarable Robert Nesta Marley's timeless vision of love and "inity" his many offspring have formed various charitable foundations to spread that love, while consciously raising awareness, as well as funds for children in need. In particular, House Of Marley has created an outstanding line up of products to support us in our iOS enjoyment. Now House Of Marley and Apple have officially teamed up to raise money for the charity "Little Kids Rock" which helps support music education in "under-served" schools.
