As a writer for iPhone Life, I've seen it all, so it's hard to impress me with yet another iPhone case. But I am indeed very impressed, and pleased, with the rolltop case from TopKase. So what sets it apart?



Funny video from Conan lampoons Samsung's denial that it violated Apple's patents

As you no doubt are aware, Samsung and Apple have been in the courtroom this week, each accusing the other of violating its patents. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. It's already becoming fodder for comedians, with Conan giving his take on it in this video.

In court yesterday Apple presented evidence that Samsung had copied the iPhone in 126 different ways. CNNMoney has more, including a link to a pdf of the complete court transcript.



Report: New iPhone to be 18% thinner, screen 30% larger

image

According to AppleInsider, a Chinese publication has obtained components of the forthcoming iPhone 5 and has done detailed measurements. These reveal that the new iPhone will be 18% thinner and that the screen will be 30% larger. These dimensions are in line with earlier rumors. The post on AppleInsider also notes the new smaller dock connector and the relocation of the headphone jack to the base of the device. 



Review: Flying Princess by Aleph Games

The cliché, of course, is that the knight in white shining armor rides in to save the damsel in distress and everyone lives happily ever after.  Flying Princess severely bucks that trend with a sniveling “hero”, an overly ambitious princess and a cannon!  Personally I think love might have drifted from being blind to teetering on the edge of insanity, but it makes for a great game, so who cares?



Get Flight free this week!

Will post a review up soon, but wanted to get the word out that you can grab the iOS port of Flight for free (limited time only this week), a formerly flash-based 2D paper airplane game recently added to the app store here. Throw your paper airplane, collecting stars and power-ups which earn you upgrades and enhancements, while trying to eke out an even longer glide. The game has been redone with new visuals and enhancements, and I can vouch already it's a lot of simple fun... grab it while it's still gratis for a limited time!

Finally! An awesome new handheld game for drum lovers!  Drum Fanatics is a new app for your iPhone, iPod or iPad that allows you to get your drum addiction in even when you are away from your drum set.

Review: Sena Ultraslim Leather Case

image

 I have been using the Ultraslim leather case review sample for a little bit now. This review is based on the model for my Galaxy Tab 2.0 7” Tablet. However, there are Ultraslim versions available for iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone and the new Nexus 7.  I have linked the different models below so you can go right to your device for more info. Regardless of device type and size, the Ultraslim case is essentially the same. (My photos are at the end)

 

As you will see on their website, “The UltraSlim is the thinnest leather case ever designed for any mobile device. It is perfect for those who prefer zero bulk.” I can’t sum this review any better than Sena has already said in these two sentences.



Review: iAM Stylus

image

 

The owners of the iAM stylus contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing their new stylus called the iAM Stylus. I am glad they did as I am finding it’s a nice accessory, and one that is also very unique on the market. This is a brand new accessory that just came out. (Note: my photos are at the end).

The stylus is made of aluminum. It’s a very solid and tough design and very light weight. Even though it’s light, it does not feel like a lot of those cheap styluses on the market. This was one of the reasons they created this product because they could not find a stylus that was quality made and also would fulfill all of their needs.

Lots of rumors and changes ahead of the refresh of Apple's iOS lineup, expected to start with an announcement on September 12. Sprint has lowered the price of its iPhone 4S from $199 to $149 in anticipation of the launch of iPhone 5 — a move that's typical in advance of a new model in order to clear out inventory.
