All signs point to a March release of the iPad 3, with an enhanced Retina display and potentially a faster processor and LTE/4G data speeds. Any one of those would probably be enough for me to upgrade from my iPad 2, so in preparation I looked into selling my old iPad. When I upgraded to the iPad 2, I handed down the iPad 1 to my kids. I plan to repeat that pattern, and that frees up the original iPad. Even though it will be several generations old, my 16GB WiFi iPad 1 was worth over $200 at SellYourMac.com. I've written about them in the past, so I thought I'd put my money where my mouth is.
Two distinct messenger style bags arrived this week, and they presented a nice contrast. The Trench Runner from M-Edge is a retro, army surplus-inspired satchel with several compartments for cables, chargers, and, of course, an iPad. The Narwhal from GreenSmart is an eco-friendly messenger bag (backpacks and duffels are available as well) with a strong emphasis on recycling.
has made some cool self powered radios over the years, with cooperation from Grundig, but their latest offerings incorporate enhanced designed including aluminum accents that complement the American Red Cross red and white enclosure.
There are a lot of sprays and chemicals designed to eliminate smudges and fingerprints on touchscreen devices, but they have heir drawbacks. If the bottle is too big, you can't carry it on a plane and they run out at the most inopportune times.
I don't think it's fair to call the Pelican i1075 HardBack IPad Case
a "case" when it is so much more rugged and substantial than typical iPad cases. Perhaps a better term is "safebox" or "strongbox!"
If you watched the news lately, you may have seen the uproar when a certain charity with a noble purpose gets involved in politics. It might make you jaded and give you pause before you make a donation or buy another "pink" item. So when I saw today's press release from OtterBox, I read it carefully.
Have you ever fumbled for your iPhone in the dark? The Alter Ego case from M-Edge
is not only brightly colored, but it is made from glow in the dark material that 'recharges' when exposed to light. It's a smart idea that should be standard in more cases.
The Alter Ego has a cool geometric design that takes its styling cues directly from Apple and the opening for the rear facing camera lens and flash.
Ever since the latest iteration of the iPod nano was introduced, people have been trying to wear their nano as a wristwatch. Computer accessory vendors have jumped on the bandwagon, often offering little more than a Velcro wristband and calling it a watch case.
is a line of accessories designed by a comapny that is first and foremost a watchband company, and they have used that skill and design expertise to make a high quality suite of wristwatch bands for the iPod nano.
This time of year, people get excited about the Super Bowl, if for nothing else, than the commercials. But still, even the best commercials are one-way and non-interactive. At CES, I got a chance to meet with Blippar
, an augmented reality mobile advertising firm.
When I saw the iPadFlex from UZBL (as in usable) at MacWorld, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Is it an iPad case, a stand, a handle, a tripod, a suction mount, or a carrying strap? The answer is, all of the above. You can add and subtract elements to make your iPadFlex perform exactly as you wish!
