Okay, let me start by saying I've never engaged in a more extreme sport than off-road motocross. Hands down, of all the sports I've been involved with over this lifetime, including Shotokan Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Single-handed sailing, track or kayaking to name a few, none has ever beat the living-daylights out of me like off-road motorcycle riding.
Now I will admit to delusions of grandeur at times, when I am out there racing my brother, catching air and eating dirt, thinking about turning pro... but that said, I do ride pretty hard and fast and as a result I've had my fair share of bumps and bruises (and sprains and breaks too!) over the years.
So when I say to you, that the Optrix XD iPhone case
is worthy of its claims of being one of the most hardcore and rugged cases on the market it is no small matter. The Optrix
is designed for just about any crazy adventure you can imagine. And with its built-in 175 degree wide-angle lens, it is truly the perfect accessory for capturing those crazy, extreme moments on film as they go down.

I normally don't complain much about some of the things Apple does, but something needs to be said about the pathetic state of the Apple Store app. Many of you are aware of exactly what I am talking about. Why doesn't Apple show iPad owners some Universal love?
Apple created the iPad, so you would think that Apple would have created a standalone Apple Store app for iPad. Or better yet, create a Universal Apple Store app that can be used on any iOS device. As it stands today, the Apple Store app looks horrible on my iPad's (3rd generation) Retina Display.
It's almost like Apple thinks no one does any shopping for Apple products on an iPad.

Welcome to my review of the top three rugged cases for the iPad mini that are available to purchase now. While there aren't a ton of heavy-duty case options out there yet for the recently unveiled iPad mini, there are a few excellent choices. This is a roundup of the top three, extreme-duty, rugged cases available for you to pick up for the new iPad mini right away, with no delay! With Black Friday and the official start of the holiday season this week, what better time!?
The iPad mini may be the new kid on the block but it’s already selling like hotcakes and I expect it to be at the top of many a holiday wish list. Every good boy and girl deserves a good protective case for their new iPad mini, especially considering how infinitely more portable the mini is than its larger sibling. Since we will be seeing more iPads out in the wild now than ever before let's take a look at some of the best of the best of heavy-duty, extra-protective cases built to keep our iPad minis safe from harm, no matter where the roads may take us.
My wife thinks I just watch too much of AMC’s The Walking Dead, but I tell her we can’t be too careful.
What if this can really happen?
Who are we to say that it’s impossible, right?
So, since “always be prepared” is one of my mottos, I think it’s a good idea to get my iPhone ready for that horrible day when the zombies come to get us. Aside from my massive stores of white chocolate truffles, coffee and vodka (who needs water?), I also have a top-secret underground zombie proof bunker. Plus, I’ve got some apps loaded up on my phone.
