One thing many sports fans like to do to is share their enthusiasm with their friends. More often than not, such debates come down to who you believe will win a game. These days, you don't even have to be face to face to make these debates happen. Online fantasy sports are booming, from rotisserie leagues to simple 'pick 'em' contests. SportzPicks is the newest entry in online sports prediction gaming, with a twist.
If you haven't already heard, earlier this year one of the world’s leading case manufacturers, Otterbox, bought out their friendly rival in the case development and production business, Lifeproof. Ever since Otterbox made this acquisition I've been eagerly awaiting the release of the first hybrid Otterbox/Lifeproof case. Well, my wait is finally over, as Otterbox has just unveiled the Preserver iPhone case for the iPhones 5/5S/5C ($89.95). With the introduction of the Preserver, Otterbox has in my opinion, created one of the best protective iPhone cases in the ever more crowded field of waterproof and rugged protection cases. If you liked the Otterbox Armor and the Lifeproof frē, or if you are in search of one of the most reliable heavy-duty iPhone cases on the market, you will simply love the new Otterbox Preserver. Read on for all the details of this stellar new protective iPhone case....

And with the new NFL season comes one other staple of the fall, fantasy football. This has become highly popular, even for casual fans of the game. You may be in a league, or three. And as a result, you may find yourself scrambling to find out who got you some much-needed points. If you're on the go, it can be a bit tricky. Here's a couple of apps that will help you be king of the fantasy-football gridiron!
Apple's location and proximity detection technology, iBeacon, will be playing a central role in MLB's soon-to-be-updated At The Ballpark app (free). The app will try to bring a new, interactive stadium experience, utilizing the iPhone's Bluetooth and iBeacon technologies for indoor mapping purposes.
While typical GPS services are great for travel, it isn't particularly effective while indoors. With iBeacon, micro-locations within stadiums will be created with a higher degree of accuracy.
I’ve checked out just about every rugged-protection, Bluetooth speaker in the market, and I have to say, Grace Digital’s ECOROX ($129.99) gets my vote for Best Overall Rugged Bluetooth Speaker so far this year. The ECOROX is an excellent example of meticulous attention to practical detail and functionality. It has all the features anyone might want in a highly portable, heavy-duty Bluetooth speaker, including delivering awesome sound and providing some of the most durable and comprehensive adventure-ready reliability in a Bluetooth speaker.

Apple's recent event revealed the iPhone 5S, complete with space gray, silver, or gold color schemes, new camera features, and a fingerprint sensor. It also highlighted the new M7 motion coprocessor, designed to gather motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass.
Fitness apps that would normally fall on the A7 chip will now rely on the M7, a more efficient alternative that draws less battery. With a new set of CoreMotion APIs, developers can also contribute a variety of fitness and motion tracking apps for iOS 7.
