Find your iPhone in the dark with the Alter Ego glow in the dark case from M-Edge #CES

image
Have you ever fumbled for your iPhone in the dark? The Alter Ego case from M-Edge is not only brightly colored, but it is made from glow in the dark material that 'recharges' when exposed to light. It's a smart idea that should be standard in more cases.


The Alter Ego has a cool geometric design that takes its styling cues directly from Apple and the opening for the rear facing camera lens and flash.


ScreenPro is a screen protector with a professional touch and it's made in the USA #MacWorld

There are a ton of screen protectors, and you can often get them for free when you purchase a case. So why would you pay for one? Simple, for the same reason nobody pays me to play golf. I'm an amateur and if you want a good performance, get a professional. The same is true with screen protectors. The free ones are typically worth what you pay for them. Bubbles and fingerprints are almost inevitable, and they end up making the screen protector useless.



If you don't use a case and want an iPhone stand, the iKlik might just click for you #MacWorld

I use a variety of cases for each scenario, but a lot of iPhone owners keep their iPhone's naked. If you're one of those people, you might be interested in the iKlik, a plastic molded stand specifically built for holding a naked iPhone in landscape mode.



Stick your iPhone anywhere... The secret is magnets and BodyDock #MacWorld

image

If you want to put your iPhone anywhere, and I do mean anywhere, check out the Cellphone Armor BodyDock System from BodyDocks. They use an extensive system of magnets (hence the name, ) that includes a rugged case, assorted magnets, security tethers, and more.




These components work together to allow you to stick your iPhone on your clothing, refrigerator, purse, lanyard, automobile dashboard and really just about anywhere you can think of.



If the Watershed Grid Tablet Bag is good enough for Navy SEALs, it might be good for you and like the SEALs, it's made in USA

image
There are a lot of companies making waterproof cases for phones and even tablets, but not too many can say they supply the Navy SEALs! Watershed can, with their DryBags.com line of serious survival equipment.


Their Grid Tablet Bag is like a ziplock bag on steroids. The UV resistant polyurethane laminated nylon is combines with an airtight ZIPDRY seal with welded seams and mil-spec stitching.


Opena let's you open a beer or other bottle #MacWorld

image
There are a surprising number of vendors offering an iPhone case that includes a beer bottle opener, but the Opena model stands out for a few reasons. Rather than have the opening mechanism around the Apple logo on the back of the iPhone case, the Opena has a slide out opener made of stainless steel. This means, when opening a bottle, the pressure is not placed directly on the phone.





Dual simcard capability for iPhone 4: Unique battery case with extra simcard slot

image

 

Many business travelers often need to be contactable on two mobile numbers: one local number for their business clients and another personal number for family and friends. Until now, this means having two mobile phones and the inconvenience of having to make sure that contacts are transferred from one phone to another, or having to forward messages from one phone to another.



iVisor AG Screen Protector by Moshi

I'm loving my new screen protector, the iVisor AG from Moshi!  It was so easy to put on (literally took 30 seconds).  And they are right...no bubbles!  And it's thin enough where I can use any case with it.  It comes in black and white. 



Is the Q Card Case is a case that's a wallet, or a wallet that's a case?

image

In this job, I get to try out a lot of cases, and they're usually plastic, metal, rubber, or fabric. But the Q Card Case for CM4 is an interesting hybrid, combining a soft leather-like fabric where it counts and rubber for the phone case component. They have even applied for a patent for this combination.




The fabric portion has a slot that can hold up to three credit card or ID cards as well as some cash. There's a nice slot that makes it easy to eject the cards as needed.



Take the arcade with you, with mobile iCade offerings from ION at CES

image

I've been playing with the original iCade for a few months (see original article here), and it's been great fun, but it sure ain't portable.




Well, the folks at ION have come through. At CES, they showed off their new iCade Jr., which brings arcade-style joystick and buttons from the larger model to the iPhone and iPod touch.


 



iPhone Cases, iPad Covers, iPod Sleeves | iPhone Life Magazine

The market for iPhone cases is increasing exponentially with the release of the new iPhone 4S.  The companies that make the cases are always looking for more ways to capture their customers attention.  Whether practicality or style is more important, we review the products so that you don't have to.

Are you looking for a durable clip-on case for your new iPhone 4S? There are plenty of choices that exist already, thanks to the fact that the new iPhone's dimensions are the same as the original iPhone 4. One of the more recent cases to hit the market is Ballistic's Sport Rugged Universal Smartphone Pouch. How does it stack up to the competition? Read on to find out.  

iPhone cases are getting to be like jewelry… there seems to be a different case for every occasion. If the occasion is rugged outdoor activity, the Ballistic offers a tough, scratch-resistant nylon vertical flip case with a thick clip that holds on snuggly to a belt or strap. While it is just slightly on the bulky side, the case is lined along the bottom and sides with a stitched ridge that will absorb the shock of a drop fairly well.

If the occasion is more flashy (Gaga Style)... There are a lot of case makers out there, but there's only one Lady Gaga.  And LuxMobile has licensed her images and designs for their line of cases.  No strangers to luxury licensing, LuxMobile also offers cases with Ed Hardy and other trendy designs.  More feminine-friendly cases are becoming popular, and the Lady Gaga collection presented several options.  There is the understated 'diamond pattern' Romance style, but true Gaga fans may want something more outlandish.  No 'meat' cases currently, but you never know. 

Surc is a case and app combo that turns your iphone into a universal remote control. What makes this device stand out from the crowd is that the unit is sleek and adds little to the size or weight of the phone. Usually you have to add an attachment to the phone to convert it into a remote. Not with this one.  This remote goes above and beyond your basic remote. You can control multiple items in a room. On top of that, I was really impressed with the capabilities and customization that this unit allows. Add the buttons you want, move them around the screen, even use gestures to control your device. Shake the iPhone and you turn on or off your TV. Watch the video to see even more features.
