Review: Seidio Obex Waterproof Case for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

image

The one thing that never changes about the iPhone is its need for protection. It's difficult to have a device that looks better with each iteration and to want to show it off, but also worry about the damage it may take from everyday use. Seidio aims to alleviate some of that stress with their everything-proof Obex case ($79.95), but is it worth the price?

I had the pleasure of chatting with the folks at Super Evil Mega Corp again today, on the heels of their latest and perhaps one of their most significant update thus far. Along with congratulating them on their incredible success and the corresponding rave reviews from the core gaming community, we got to talk about their latest update and what the future holds for this ground-breaking title that has taken the gaming world by storm.



Game Centered: Top 10 Gaming Headphones for iOS

image

Welcome to Game Centered. Usually our Game Centered column focuses on iOS gaming apps, however this time we're taking a slightly different tack and focusing on iOS gaming gear, specifically exceptional headphones for iOS gaming. This roundup has been a long time coming. Over my years writing for iPhone Life magazine I've gotten hip to many great headphones, but only a handful would I consider optimal for the iOS gaming environment, as many factors go into making a pair of headphones optimal for the core gamer. The headphones featured here all fit that bill and address the fact that more and more core gamers are looking to their iOS devices to provide their gaming fix. It's rare that I come across reviews or roundups that focus on great gaming gear solely for the iOS gamer, and this aims to do just that. So if you are an avid, core gamer who loves playing on iOS, this one's for you!



Battery Case Review - Thinner uNu DX packs in the power!

image

The DX-FREE ($69.99) from uNu Electronics is a 2400mAh external battery case that is surprisingly thin and light. The two-piece construction gives superior protection that is practically seamless once installed. So much so that I almost couldn't uninstall it!



Indie Project Corner - Super Thin Libre Is a Bluetooth Keyboard for Everyone (Part 2)!

image

This is Part 2 of a two-part Indie Project Corner featuring the Libre wireless keyboard from Casestudi (see Part 1 here). In part 1, we queried Peter Ho (Casestudi Founder) on the gory specifics about his fancy new thin keyboard that works with PC, Android or iOS! In this part, we actually kick the tires (or kick the Libre, as it were) on this spotlighted Kickstarter effort!



Apple Pay Makes Inroads

image

Apple Pay has done quite well by any standard, but until now it had not been officially accepted at Best Buy nor had Discover supported it with its cards. The momentum behind Apple Pay is strong, though, and those barriers have been or are about to be broken. AppleInsider reports that Discover Card announced that it will support Apple Pay and in an analyst call, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that Best Buy customers will be able to use Apple Pay at its terminals later this year.



Indie Project Corner - Super Thin Libre Is a Bluetooth Keyboard for Everyone (Part 1)!

image

This is the second edition of the Indie Project Corner, where we highlight the coolest new crowdfunded projects; and this time we have selected the Libre Keyboard from Casestudi for our project spotlight. Peter Ho, Casestudi Founder, thinks we need a thinline, wireless backlit keyboard that is both affordable and universal (and I agree). He designed his own multi-OS-compatible Bluetooth keyboard and funded it on Kickstarter, and is now headed for stretch goals. 



LifeProof frē Case is Water/Dust/Dirt/Shock Proof But Not Dock-Proof

image

I had the opportunity to try LifeProof frē Case ($79.99). LifeProof also makes a more expensive nüüd line which does not use a screen protector yet manages to be waterproof just the same.

We had a few minutes to preview the latest Pelican cases at CES this year, but really only a glance. We wanted to make sure we circled back and provided full reviews now that Pelican was able to send out some samples. We recently received both a Pro Gear Protector (starts at $29.99) and Voyager (starts at $37.49) series case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and we can confirm that these new cases provide the serious protection you want if you are dragging your device around with you everywhere. They also come with a lifetime guarantee!
