Special Announcement: Introducing Outdoor Technology's Bluetooth Mini-Boombox, the Turtle Shell.

image

 

I'm all about companies that don't just make a great product for profit, but also make a great product while being exemplary of a new way of thinking; one that makes our environment and experiencing the enjoyment of nature and the great outdoors, higher priorities. It's easy to diconnect from Mother Earth if we aren't careful, and I appreciate a company that understands how tied in to our mobile devices we are, while at the same time, facillitating ways in which we can integrate our hi-tech, mobile devices into a lifestyle that takes greater advantage of outdoor activities and adventures.

 

     

 

So without further ado, I'd like to introduce to you, a Kickstarter project worth knowing about! Outdoor Technology's Turtle Shell, rugged, wireless Bluetooth Boombox. Read on after the break for full details in the Press Release...

House Of Marley rocks the house with their Revolution headphones.

If you’d like to find a professional quality pair of on-ear headphones, that also happen to be manufactured by a company with ecologically and sociologically upstanding core principles, well, look no further.

 

 

House Of Marley is a “rough and tumble, brand revolution, setting out to change the shape of the future.” They have crafted an outstanding line of products and iDevice accessories. The company (which is spearheaded by Rohan Marley, one of Bob’s sons) has from the ground up, incorporated Bob Marley’s timeless wisdom of Love and “Inity” into its development. Giving 5% of their annual profits to charity (Rita Marley’s 1Love Foundation) and using materials that are either recycled or can easily be recycled, House Of Marley is a trailblazer in the new paradigm of eco-conscious iDevice products. Incorporating wood, and repurposed and recycled aluminum, fabric and plastic, House Of Marley has raised the bar for companies producing eco-friendly, hi-tech  accessories. With an ever-expanding line-up of merchandise, House Of Marley offers a lot of choices to anyone in the market for high-quality, stylish gear to go along with their gadgets.

 

The Revolution headphones are an exceptional pair of on-ear, professional quality headphones. When I put them on and listened to the first notes of music through them, it was such a wonderful experience. Imagine what it would sound like if crystals could sing! Indeed, these understated and comfortable headphones have a sound of crystalline clarity!



No-contract carrier Cricket to offer iPhone 5 beginning September 28

image

With the arrival of the iPhone 5, there's been a lot of discussion regarding the advantages and disadvantages of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. Now another option that you might consider: a no-contract iPhone 5 from Cricket. The new phone will be available from Cricket starting September 28. Read more on CNET. What's the advantage of a no-contract carrier? You can save money. You pay more up front for an unlocked phone, but your prepaid usage comes out to be less money than the contracts from the major carriers.



iPhone 5 already in short supply; selling your old iPhone if you upgrade

image

Wow, if there was any doubt about how popular the new iPhone would be, the initial sales have put that to rest. By 4 am this morning, the first day that pre-ording was available, Apple's website was already saying that delivery would be two weeks rather than next Friday, as announced. As usual, those who went online in the middle of the night had trouble accessing Apple's website because it was getting hammered by so much traffic. Similarly, by mid-day today Verizon was saying that delivery would be in two weeks, and AT&T was saying 14-21 days. Sprint, however, was still promising delivery by next Friday as of this afternoon.

Copper River Bags. Handcrafted leather iBags, guaranteed to last a lifetime.

That which makes something a “great deal” is very relative and subjective.

 

For instance, for the unrivaled security they provide, I would call the Lifeproof line of iDevice products a “deal”, even though they might be some of the pricier iDevice cases on the market. With regards to quality and protection, the old adage “You get what you pay for.” is often true, especially when it comes to products that claim to be durable and built to last.

 

When it comes to a quality manufacturer of iPad and laptop bags, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal than a Copper River Bag. First of all, Copper River Bags come with a 100-year warranty! I guarantee you, not many companies would say such a thing about their product. This puts them in league with such reputable, top companies as Eddie Bauer, L.L. Bean, Leatherman and the handful of other manufacturers whose warranties extend throughout the life of their product.

 

Copper River Bags are nothing short of works of art. Practical, durable works of art mind you, but art nonetheless. Each bag is hand crafted here in America in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. Using rugged, full grain leather, each Copper River Bag is built to carry your devices and gadgets, now and for generations to come. Truly, if you decide to invest in a Copper River Bag, it is something that, barring any unforeseen natural disaster, you will likely find yourself leaving to a loved one in your will.
