Once upon a time, if you wanted a rugged, waterproof tech accessory, it was going to look the part. Oftentimes that would include a bulky form factor and a militaristic look that, needless to say, wasn't everyone’s cup of tea. Nowadays we have far greater options when it comes to accessories that are both extremely rugged as well as stylish. The Fugoo waterproof speaker is one of those options.
Lifeproof and Otterbox joined forces last year to form what I would consider one of the most formidable business partnerships in the protective case industry. This year at CES the two companies shared booth space and oh, what a booth it was. They put on quite a show and had what was perhaps the largest and most extravagant booth of any case maker at CES, with lots of demos. Otterbox sponsored NASCAR truck racer, Germán Quiroga, was even on hand to promote the products. Read on for more details on the latest and greatest from these two industry-leading companies...
Braven just introduced a massively powerful new outdoor, rugged speaker at this year’s CES. Called the BRV-X ($229.00), it's designed to withstand almost any abuse that an outdoor adventurer may subject it to, with considerable shock/drop/water protection. The BRV-X is truly a force to be reckoned with, and between its thunderous sound and Herculean design, it ranks as one of the best outdoor Bluetooth speakers I've ever seen or heard.
I love authentic Italian food, and as a foodie, I want to try just about everything that I can get my hands on. Most of the time though, I end up with a totally different dish than I thought I was ordering. It can be a nice surprise, but I wouldn't want that to happen all the time!
That's where the Translate A Menu – Italy Food Dictionary (free with in-app purchases) helps to save the day. The app tells you exactly what you are ordering, including the ingredients and how it is cooked.

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.
