Review: OtterBox Commuter Series Case for iPad

image

Not too long ago I tested and published a review on the very cool OtterBox Defender Case for iPad (link below). I just recently also received the opportunity to test drive the Commuter Series for the iPad.

I did not take a photo of the box and folder inside. It’s the same design (different wording) as the Defender Case. You also get the screen shield which is one of the three layers of protection, along with the cleaning cloth and squeegee.



Charge Everything with the IDAPT i4!!

The most flexible powerhouse of an adapter base I have used to date, the award-winning IDAPT i4 universal desktop charger will keep your gadgets powered up, and looks good doing it. This is one gadget that even my wife likes so much, it currently gets to reside on the kitchen counter! Nuff said...but you still might want to read the rest of the review.



Improve critical thinking with Analogies 4 Kids

Analogies are comparisons that point out relationships between two or more different things. For example: cat : kitten as dog : puppy. By providing your child with practice in correctly identifying analogies, you’ll not only help him improve his IQ and placement test scores, but you'll also improve his analytical thinking, problem solving, perception, spatial skills, memory and creativity.



Stay classy, iPhone Life readers... with a case from Proporta!

I'm a classy guy, trust me.  Okay, at least I try to be.  And my latest case for the iPhone 4 helps!  It's from Proporta and it's made out of luxurious leather with, get this, a leather-encased aluminum cover.  The aluminum protects the iPhone screen, but the leather lining makes it soft to the touch.  It truly is "like butter."

Is vBookz the future of eBooks? You decide!

image

I've always felt that it was shortsighted for eBook readers to merely try to emulate the traditional book experience.  Sure, it's fun to see the page curl as you swipe the screen, etc., but for eReaders to really take off, they need to leverage their technology and offer advantages that a traditional book cannot.  vBookz, $4.99 from Mindex International, is an attempt to do just that, with an eBook reader that reads out loud, using Text-to-Speech.



iStart Spanish Review

image

As a dabbler of a few languages, I admit that I am not a natural learner. My English is not that good, and it's my native tongue! Anyhoo, I took Spanish in high school, but never could quite get the hang of the tricky rolling r sounds, the masculine and feminine forms, etc. With iStart Spanish on my iPod, I may finally be able to make some progress, and understand some of my wife's favorite TV shows.



Omni Focus for the iPad - I like it better than the desktop version!

image

 

The first thing you need to know is that Omni Focus for iPad is NOT a beefed-up version of Omni Focus for iPhone. The iPad app has been created specifically for the iPad. It takes full advantage of the iPad’s larger real estate and has features not found on the iPhone version.
