LifeProof iPhone Case: Five Stars!

image

We all like to protect our iPhone from all the elements of life. Well now there is a case just for that called LifeProof. Now if we could buy one large enough to protect ourselves from life. LOL. I have been using this case for a couple weeks now and I'm impressed with its overall function and protection. I don't think I'll be taking calls at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean anytime soon.

Protect that new iPhone 4S with a case folks will go Gaga over!

image

There are a lot of case makers out there, but there's only one Lady Gaga.  And LuxMobile has licensed her images and designs for their line of cases.  No strangers to luxury licensing, LuxMobile also offers cases with Ed Hardy and other trendy designs.  Since I gifted my iPhone 4 to my wife, in anticipation of my upgrade to the iPhone 4S, I had to find a more feminine-friendly case for her, and the Lady Gaga collection presented several options.  My wife went with the more understated 'diamond pattern' Romance style, but true Gaga fans may want something more outlandish.  No 'meat' cases currently, but you never know.



Got your iPhone 4 on order? How about a case?

image

I haven't ordered an iPhone 4 yet. I'm waiting for an iPhone 5. But I just learned about the Universal Sport Rugged Pouch case for the iPhone 4 and thought some of you who are buying the 4 might be interested.

What I like about it is:

#1 - It's Ballistic. Their products are always well made.

#2 I like the fold-over belt clip. That is really unique. It's handy, achieves the purpose and still looks great.

Update: Waterfield Travel Express

image

 

Back in June I reviewed the Waterfield Travel Express for the Apple Keyboard. I use it mostly during travel times so I wanted to give you a brief update and some news. It’s still going strong and is one of my favorite organizational accessories. It was designed for the Keyboard and additional accessories. But I have a secret to tell. SSSHHHH! I have been using it with my 7” Samsung Galaxy tab also. Obviously it’s too big for it, but it also holds my needed accessories at the same time. With that said, there are Travel Expresses designed for your iPad too.



Bring the arcade home with iCADE from ThinkGeek!

image
I've been having a ball with the iCADE, $100 from ThinkGeek.com though I've also seen it at Toys R Us and Best Buy. Originally conceived as an April Fools Day joke, the idea was so attractive that they had it built as a real product... something that happens with remarkable frequency!



iPhone 5 cases show up at an AT&T store

image

There's a whole lotta confusion among the various rumors, and adding to the mix is the appearance of iPhone 5 cases in AT&T stores. The cases suggest that the new iPhone will be thinner with tapered edges. You can read more and see photos on the cases in a post on MacRumors. The post still holds out the possibility, though, that Apple may not introduce a redesigned iPhone -- that other evidence is suggesting an iPhone 4S instead. It won't be long until the mystery is solved.

For that special chick in your life, consider chicboom from chicBuds

image
Between my wife and kids, I have several 'chicks' in my life but it was the youngest ones (7 and 11) who were immediately drawn to the chicboom keychain speaker from chicBuds.com. Available in various trendy female friendly patterns, there is more than meets the eye with this little gadget. Smaller than one half of a pair of fluffy dice, the chicboom can fit in your purse or gadget bag and you're good to go.

Nav Mat II: The Ultimate Car Mount Solution

image

 

I don't know about you, but I am constantly challenged finding a place on my cluttered dashboard and windshield to mount a digital device. It's always a contest to find a place that the mount will stick, a place where you can see the screen of the device easily, and a place that will not inhibit your view of the road.



Go Handsfree with Supertooth Buddy

image

 

I don't know why it's not illegal to drive and text/talk at the same time, but there are still some states that don't seem to care. It's a lethal combination. Nothing give me shivers more that a soccer mom with a van full of kids yakking away on her phone.

It really doesn't matter if it's against the law or not; it's simply not safe. Everyone should have a handsfree device for mobile phones in the car. If only I could introduce them to the wonders of Supertooth Buddy. Let me tell you about it.



Review - iHome iW1 Wireless Speaker System

image

The iW1 from iHome is a superb AirPlay compatible wireless speaker. I was the first person to get a review unit, so more or less the first guinea pig user. Consequently, I had some guinea pig type problems with it, but with help from the folks at iHome, was able to get it working quite well. It is arguably the best combination of features I have yet seen in a portable speaker system.
