MagicWand

 I miss the stylus from the old Windows Mobile days. These new touch screens can be difficult for accurate typing, drawing, and pointing. A stylus is much more precise. When the iPhone first came out, I used to call its users nose miners. Ah, the good old days of yore.

Anyway, I'm back in business. I just acquired a magnificent MagicWand by MediaDevil that would make Harry Potter envious. While it's not an Elder Wand made at Alivans, it's a super pointer that improves typing accuracy immeasurably.

A Tale of Two Bags: One a Retro Military-Inspired Satchel, the Other a Futuristic Earth-Friendly Messenger Bag

image

Two distinct messenger style bags arrived this week, and they presented a nice contrast. The Trench Runner from M-Edge is a retro, army surplus-inspired satchel with several compartments for cables, chargers, and, of course, an iPad. The Narwhal from GreenSmart is an eco-friendly messenger bag (backpacks and duffels are available as well) with a strong emphasis on recycling.

If the Pelican i1075 is just a case, then Fort Knox is just a playground fort #CES #MadeInUSA

image
I don't think it's fair to call the Pelican i1075 HardBack IPad Case a "case" when it is so much more rugged and substantial than typical iPad cases. Perhaps a better term is "safebox" or "strongbox!"



A case for beating cancer thanks to OtterBox #CES

If you watched the news lately, you may have seen the uproar when a certain charity with a noble purpose gets involved in politics.  It might make you jaded and give you pause before you make a donation or buy another "pink" item.  So when I saw today's press release from OtterBox, I read it carefully.



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.


What Your iPhone Case Says About You

image

Have you looked for an iPhone case lately, iPhone Life-ers? The choices are overwhelming. Just think of the poor new iPhone owner realizing that their new toy is gonna get scratched if they don’t get something to protect it, and they go online to find a case for it and find eight million mind-boggling choices.

You were there once. You know what I’m talking about.

Just like me, you probably sat there scratching your head wondering what the perfect case would be. What would make you happy and proud to hold in your hand? What’s good enough to protect your precious piece of technology?



Wear you iPod nano on your wrist with iWatchz #CES

image
Ever since the latest iteration of the iPod nano was introduced, people have been trying to wear their nano as a wristwatch. Computer accessory vendors have jumped on the bandwagon, often offering little more than a Velcro wristband and calling it a watch case.


Fortunately, iWatchz is a line of accessories designed by a comapny that is first and foremost a watchband company, and they have used that skill and design expertise to make a high quality suite of wristwatch bands for the iPod nano.


The most flexible iPad case is the iPadFlex from UZBL #MacWorld

image

When I saw the iPadFlex from UZBL (as in usable) at MacWorld, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Is it an iPad case, a stand, a handle, a tripod, a suction mount, or a carrying strap? The answer is, all of the above. You can add and subtract elements to make your iPadFlex perform exactly as you wish!
