TYLT's cool accessories upends expectations of Technocel at CES

image
In pinball, 'tilt' is a bad thing, but Technocel just launched a new brand/subsidiary called TYLT and it's a refreshing, overdue shift from their traditional line of black/gray boring but necessary power accessories. Indeed I wasn't planning to attend their press conference because what new or interesting products could they come up with? Longer coiled cables? Eco-friendly packaging? Ho hum. Surprise, surprise, surprise! It looks like Ikea or Frog Design had their way with the product line and the TYLT products could easily find a home at the Museum of Modern Art, let alone the Apple Store.


iOS printing comes to the office with xPrintServer from Lantronix

If you have ever tried printing from your iPhone or iPad to your home printer, you know how it's not straightforward. You need to use a supported printer, like a newer HP model with ePrint, or you need a specific app (usually free) from your printer vendor, such as Epson. That might be acceptable for home users, but imagine an enterprise with dozens or hundreds of iOS users printing to dozens of industrial strength printers. You can't easily replace all of those printers, financially or functionally, and you can't necessarily force all of those employees to download and use printer-specific apps for each printer.

iFrogz Mix - Edge protection without the bulk!

Looking a little like a Kevlar vest for iPhone, the new iFrogz Mix is a polycarbonate hybrid case with a thicker TPU edge. TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) is a choice material for it's resistance to abrasions, oil and grease, while retaining excellent elasticity. It's better than traditional rubber in some respects as it is lacking in overly adhesive properties (easier to pull out of the back pocket), with the added benefit of anti-microbial properties. Wow that sounded scientific... I need to stop researching and reviewing all these darn cases...

"Have you ever tried to run with your iPhone in your pocket? It's more awkward than running with scissors. Your phone smacks against your thigh during every step or worse, falls out every few feet. Running with your device in hand is not much better. The headphone cord flops everywhere, and your hand is uncomfortable the entire time. The first step to taking your iPhone or iPod Touch on a run (please don't run with your iPad) is securing it to your body. Armbands can take a little getting used to (it feels slightly like running with a blood pressure cuff) but they are definitely much better than keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch in your pocket. Here are some solutions I've tried out..."

Here's a 2 Cases Comparison article: "There are two cases that protect your iPhone from just about anything: The Ballistic Hard Core and The Otterbox Defender.  So which to buy?  Both provide the best protection you can buy. The Ballistic provides five layers of protection. The Otterbox provides three. However, the three layers are all that's needed for most people.
