Otterbox continues in their tradition of excellence with the new and improved Defender series for the iPhone 5.
 
The new iPhone 5 is definitely the toughest iPhone version yet! That doesn't mean it can't be scuffed, scratched or get broken. To insure the safety and longevity of your iPhone 5 a good case can make all the difference, especially if you happen to be rough on your iPhone for any reason.
 
To the rescue comes the Otterbox Defender. Whether you are a bit clumsy by nature or a nature enthusiast by choice, from the city to the outback, the Otterbox Defender will give your iPhone 5 some of the best protection available.
 
Many of you are already familiar with the Otterbox Defender series. It's been one of the most popular and successful cases for the iPhone, widely available in major retail outlets around the world. And now, with the introduction of their newest Version of the Defender, Otterbox has improved upon what was already an excellent product.

House Of Marley makes an ever-expanding line up of excellent products. Not only do they make high-quality accessories that function exquisitely, but also, their commitment to providing us with the best products, produced in the most eco-friendly manner is respectable and commendable.

 

I'm a big fan of House Of Marley, in part because of their business ethic and in part because of their precision crafted, well-functioning tech-tools. The House Of Marley catalog is filled with stylish, colorful, expressive and practical gear and accessories for your iLife. From the Bag Of Rhythm to the Lively Up backpack, you can rest assured that when you choose House Of Marley, you are choosing a product that raises the bar for “cool”, while also leaving a minimalistic environmental footprint.

 

Today's review features House Of Marley’s Zion, noise-isolating in-ear headphones.



MyShelf Review - Note syncing bliss without the privacy issues!

image

I really gave Evernote a huge try. Pumped loads of web info, article research, photos and screenshots in there.  Even had my camera SD card configured to post images to my account (check out my review here on how to do this). The love affair ended really not because of any one thing, but a lot of nuisances. General sluggishness and sync issues that crept in. Bigger problems like somehow losing extensive posts or article content I had spent hours crafting, and more obnoxious things like crashing and hanging up. If you looking for an app that can give you simple note/interest gathering capability with little in the way of distractions, you might want to try out MyShelf as an alternative. It won't knock EN off it's lofty perch, but it does let you share note and interest data across your devices.



Artist Jonathan Marks Creates Exquisite iPhoneography Day After Day

image

You have to admire fine artist Jonathan Marks: every day for over two years he’s posted a photo to his Tumblr site that he’s taken with his iPhone. You can see quality in each photo, and clear evidence for his artistry. But he takes things a step further. For each photo, he posts both the original and then his version that has been tweaked for effect, exclusively using iPhone photo-editing apps. The differences are remarkable and give the viewer insight into how an artist sees things.

Take the following photo as an example. It’s a competent photo that shows off the ability of the iPhone’s camera, and shows his sensitivity to lighting and color.



Cygnett offers a wide variety of iPhone 5 cases, to match your mood!

image
I must admit, I hadn't heard about Cygnett and their cases for the iPhone 4, but they sent me a variety to try on my new iPhone 5, and I'm sold! They offer a broad assortment of cases, from ultra slim to rugged multi-piece designs that will ensure protection. From the moment I opened my iPhone 5 box, when the suction from the packaging caused my new, naked iPhone 5 to be lifted up and promptly dropped, I was determined to keep my phone in a case!





[COMMENT] iPhone 4S Replacement

image

When Apple released iOS 6 GM (Gold Master) for developers I installed it on my iPhone 4S (64 GB, white). As I was going through the configuration screens, to my surprise, I did not get the screen asking for my wireless network. I thought that was a little odd.

When I reached the main screen I tapped Settings to check the Wi-Fi setting. For some reason the ON/OFF switch was ghosted out. Very strange...



Kickstarter + Polaroid + iPhone = The Instant Lab

image

Long before the iPhone became the darling of so many photographers, Polaroid was equally admired. Although Polaroid, the company, stopped making instant film, Polaroid, the instant photo concept, has continued on. There are many iPhone apps that imitate the Polaroid style of pictures. The Impossible Project started making instant film that can be used with the old Polaroid cameras a couple of years ago. And now they have created (or are about to create) a machine that will make instant pictures with their film directly from your iPhone. The machine will be called the Instant Lab. In order to fund it the Impossible Project created a Kickstarter Project that sought $250,000.



Review: Super Penguins by Supersolid Ltd.

image

I have a problem, and it’s called infinite runners for my iOS device.  I don’t recall which one I first latched on to, but especially since the dawn of the Temple Run style game I’ve gotten hooked on so many I could probably fill a couple home pages up with them.  To that end I’ve decided to take a week long look at the latest offerings in this genre.  Now that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get reviews for a week straight, but rather my next five entries will be related to this addictive style of game play.  The first entry in my series is Super Penguins, the premiere offering from newcomers Supersolid Ltd.  I have to say they’re off to a pretty good start.

Apple and House Of Marley officially join forces. "Double The Love" for charity.

image

 

As Bob Marley sings: "Give Thanks And Praises!" And indeed, today is a day for doing just that!

 

 

If you follow me online (Click HERE or HERE for more on House Of Marley), you likely already know that House Of Marley is one of my favorite developers of iOS accessories and gear out there. Taking the Honarable Robert Nesta Marley's timeless vision of love and "inity" his many offspring have formed various charitable foundations to spread that love, while consciously raising awareness, as well as funds for children in need. In particular, House Of Marley has created an outstanding line up of products to support us in our iOS enjoyment. Now House Of Marley and Apple have officially teamed up to raise money for the charity "Little Kids Rock" which helps support music education in "under-served" schools.
