Get your Bumper case now (or select an alternative third party case)!

image

I predict this will be the #1 Lifestyle Free app momentarily... 

iPhone 4 Case Program is a free app that makes sure you are eligible for a free Bumper or a selection of third party cases.

The app is pretty straightforward.  It makes note of your device's ID and iTunes ID and you select which case you want.  I'm still not sold on the Bumper, as I prefer protection all around, and there will probably be a lot of Bumpers on eBay in the near future!



Review: ThinkFlood's RedEye Mini

image

 

     

Well, I have had some time to try out this new RedEye Mini. What’s different about this than their original?  A lot. The original was more of a base station unit that was tied to one room. This new Mini is all about Portability and multi iDevice usage. You can keep it at home, or you can bring it on the go. You can use it in an iPad, an iPhone, or an iPod Touch. There are no restrictions, and as you can see from the pictures, it comes with a handy keychain case. Plus, this unit is more affordable and I think this added with the fact it is portable, makes it a better value.



Review: Otterbox iPad Defender Series Case

image

Well, it’s been about a week or so since I received the Otterbox Defender Series case for iPad. What do I think about it? I love it. I have been using it non stop since.

First off, it comes packaged in a cardboard box, and is held in place inside via a cardboard tray. When you take it out, you will see a folder under the Box with the Otterbox colors and logo. Inside this you will find that they provide a screen shield, a cleaning cloth and a squeegee.



Update on Eco-Extreme

image

 

I had to write and tell you that since my review of Eco-Extreme I have used this gadget ALL OVER the house. It's become a portable speaker for my iPhone! The sound quality is so good that I put my iPhone in it and write with it, cook with it and clean with it. If I had a pool (hint hint Bill), I could take it to the pool with me, too.



A bag with a bonus!

image

Here’s a bag with a bonus! The Cocoon Innovations Messenger Sling bag not only protects and transports the iPad, but it also contains an extremely functional insert, the GRID-ITTM. The GRID-ITTM is designed to hold pens, a stylus, earphones, flash drives, notepads, business cards, charging cord, small electronics and other accessories. Customize it any way you like with the woven elastic grids that hold the accessories in place. The back of the GRID-ITTM even doubles as a mouse pad.



It's Here: ThinkFlood's RedEye Mini!

Today's the day that the RedEye Mini is available for purchase. This is their new portable remote control plug in. Below is the press release that I thought I would share with you.



Behind the Scenes With JHAudio

image

Before we get into the final installment of my multi-part review of the JH Audio JH 16 Pro, I wanted to take a peek behind the curtain at the people behind these fantastic in-ear monitors.  So, what did I find?  Would you believe Van Halen?  Yup...we'll get to that.



Revenge of the Case Companies

I recently wrote about the dilemma facing third party case companies (http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/2458/making-case-case-companies) now that Apple is giving away Bumpers and presumably an Apple-approved selection of third party cases since they can't meet the demand using Bumpers alone.



Making the case for case companies

image

Oh the life of an iPhone case manufacturer.  You make an accessory for one of the most secretive technology companies around.  They don't trust you so you don't get early information, making it a mad scramble to have products available soon after the gadget is launched.  With the iPhone 4, things got messy.

On the one hand, the 'misplaced' iPhone 4 prototype gave case makers (and the rest of us) a glimpse into the potential iPhone 4 design.  It had a glass back so case makers must have been delighted that their cases would be needed for protection.



An interesting concept - a lock on the iPad?

image

Here’s an interesting concept. The iPad Security Case by newPCgadgets includes a combination lock to keep out friends, classmates and co-workers! No, it won’t prevent your iPad from being stolen, but it will keep out the curious.

The form-fitting, black leather case allows easy access to all ports. A tab on back creates a “stand” for typing, which is a handy feature. There’s also a convenient penholder attached, in which you can store a pen or stylus.
