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.





Nomad goes where no stylus has gone before #MacWorld

image
There are a lot of stylus' out there, but Nomad Brush has a couple that make a big difference. First, the Nomad Play is targeted at kids thanks to its smaller length, larger width, and wooden handle. But what really sets it apart is the paintbrush style tip, with conductive fibers so users can 'paint' directly on the screen. There is a rubber base where the fibers meet the stylus, so it reduces the chance of kids scraping the screen.



Grab a Grablet for your Tablet, and it's Made in the USA

image

Since CES, I've had a chance to play with the Grablet which is a soft rubber shell for the iPad with special hooks for the included fabric latches.  The latches can be configured in a wide variety of ways to allow the user to grip, hold and display an iPad 2 as desired.  It's similar to the OtterBox Latch but less bulky and it's a custom fit for the iPad (with versions for the both the original and the iPad 2) unlike the OtterBox which is more of a general purpose holder for any 10" tablet.



TidyTilt brings one of the smartest iPad features to the iPhone

Why didn't I think of this?  Better yet, why didn't Apple?  One of the attractive elements of the iPad 2 is the Smart Cover.  So why should the iPhone miss out on the action?  That was the thinking of Zahra and Derek, two Chicago-based enterprising entrepreneurs who created TidyTilt and used KickStarter.com to successfully fund it.

GREAT CASES FOR YOUR IPHONE 4S

These cases will keep your iPhone protected and looking stylish

The nice thing about the iPhone 4S having the same form factor as its predecessor is that there are plenty of cases to choose from. If you are upgrading from a Verizon iPhone 4, then your case(s) will fit your new phone. However, if you are upgrading from an AT&T iPhone 4, or from any other phone, you will need to buy a new case.

And now a word of parental advice (from a childless author): Always use protection when talking on your iPhone. The iPhone is made of glass, and replacing it can cost upwards of $800 dollars.

Origaudio: Smaller and Louder

Small, portable, and very loud.

OrigaudioIt is one of the iconic images of a generation: In the 1989 movie, Say Anything…, Lloyd Dobler stands outside Diane Court’s window, boom box held high over his head, blasting a serenade of Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes. Those were the days of the baggy pants, backward hats, and giant, shoulder-worn boom boxes. Often, carrying these barely-portable monsters of music required a friend to carry your assortment of cassette tapes.... and another to lug around an extra set of D size batteries.

The Solution For Our Cleaning "Solution"

image

 

The best “solution” for a clean screen (Pun intended). This is an awesome way to keep your screen clean as well as disinfected. The solution inside the bottle is an antibacterial solution which kills 99.9% of all bacteria for up to 24 hours. It is a non-drip formula and antistatic which cleans like no other. The great thing about cleaning with Antec Advance solution is the lack of an ammonia smell. We have all cleaned our computer screens or keyboards with a disinfectant only to realize that it chokes us so bad we can’t stay in the room.  So now we turn the fan on to blow the smell to our friendly “neighbor”.
