First off, let me say thank you to Piel Frama for sending my son and I this review case to play with. The Classic Magnetic Case for iPod Touch 5G ($99) is a beautiful handmade leather case. If you have never heard of Piel Frama, it has been around for quite a while, all the way back to my Pocket PC days. You can find cases for all of your iDevices on the Piel Frama website, some already designed for you, some you can customize yourself.
This is the last installment in a four-part series comparing iPod Touch 5G cases made by Speck.
My son and I have had alot of fun trying out Speck's iPod Touch 5G cases. But all good things come to an end, and we'll be reviewing Speck's FabShell Case ($29.99) for our final installment of our review series.
The FabShell has an overall similar shape to the other models we reviewed, but comes in your choice of 5 fun designs made out of fabric. The one we are using is Deadbolt Black, swathed in lightning bolts and skulls.
As a shoulder and messenger bag aficionado, I'm constantly on the lookout for that perfect bag that seamlessly combines style and functionality. I pack light most days but keep all of my daily essentials with me. Normally, I pack my phone, tablet, notebook, glasses, paper planner (yes, some people out there still use these), and some power accessories.
This is the third installment in a four-part series comparing iPod Touch 5G cases made by Speck.
So far in this series, my son and I have thoroughly tested and reported back on the performance of Speck’s Kangaskin and Pixelskin iPod Touch cases.
Those of you who read my last post know my son and I are writing a mini-series comparing four iPod Touch 5G cases made by Speck. Last week we reviewed Speck's Kangaskin with its built-in storage pouch on the back, and this week we're reviewing Speck's PixelSkin.
Thank you to Speck for sending these cases out for review. Over the next few weeks, my son and I will be putting these Speck iPod Touch 5G cases to the test. The first one we are taking for a spin is called the KangaSkin, a rubber or silicone type case (more pictures are at the end). Its unique feature is that it has a built-in storage pouch on the back, like a Kangaroo, hence its name. The power and volume buttons are covered and there are cutouts for the ports, camera, speaker, and the loop that comes with the iPod Touch.
The following post talks about my usage of the above two STM products over the last few weeks. I want to thank STM for sending these review samples over, and apologize for the delay in getting this posted. All my photos will be at the end of the quick review. I’m always looking for a good shoulder/messenger type bag. That’s essentially my portable office. Between working at home and multiple store locations, I don’t have my own office. This is it and I really like to be organized. The Velo (I’m using the medium size, mushroom color.) is a shoulder bag that has loads of storage.
Here are the final two quick reviews from users who I provided some new cases to thanks to Speck from this past summer. These are unedited. Note that one of them only has a pros and cons from the user. You can find additional info on the product with the web links I have included below. I hope you have find these mini reviews useful.
#1) Speck Handyshell for iPad 2 and 3
“I have recently tried an iPad holder for a young man with many disabilities. He does have a large iPad holder that is screwed onto his wheelchair. It is very big and time consuming to put on.
The IRIScan Book 2 is a portable mobile scanner that allows you to digitize a wide variety of documents and images. Thanks to I.R.I.S. for sending this review sample for me to play with. The Book 2 comes in a complete package with everything you will need to get started. It comes with the unit itself, powered by 2 AA batteries, also included. A USB connector, cleaning cloth, conversion software for your computer, quick start guide, carry case, and 2 GB Micro SD card are also accompanied.
I have been using Scosches’ new REALM On-Ear Headphones with tap LINE III (model # RH656md) for a few weeks. This model (along with a few others) came out last month and Scosche sent me a review sample to play with. This accessory is packaged and protected very well for shipment. With the headphones, you also receive a carry/protective pouch as well as an instruction booklet.
