[Review] Introducing the booq backpack. A quality laptop/tablet bag, perfect for back-to-school, or job commutes.



I just took my iPad and iPhone out of my backpack...

Everything was safe and dry.


Why would I think this might be interesting news? Well, I'm known for testing accessories rather aggressively, and the good folks at booq just sent me one of their favorite laptop/tablet backpacks to test. So I promptly hopped on my off-road motorcycle and went for a ride in rocky terrain, during a rainstorm. So yes, the fact that everything was safe and dry was good news.


The booq Mamba daypack is what I'm reviewing today and it's an excellent one!

Life in the nüüd. Lifeproof introduces the first heavy-duty, waterproof iPad case.




After months of anticipation and rumored development, Lifeproof, (arguably one of the best protective case manufacturers for iDevices) has produced, and now released, their version of the award-winning Lifeproof case, for the iPad 2 and 3rd generation models.


Called the “nüüd”, this new, completely submersible iPad case is a revolution of design and functionality. This cleverly designed case provides a high level of defense for our precious iPads, unlike anything else on the market.

What Is Within Walking Distance?

If one of the parameters for finding a place to live is being close to shopping or theaters or parks, this is the app for you.

It scores potential neighborhoods for their 'walk score'. That is, what's within walking distance from your home.
Simply, it's called Walk Score (free).

The Successful Android App has been Ported to iPhone

What's Next? You Ain't Seen Nuthin' Yet... [on the evolution of Apple]



With all the chatter in the blogosphere, about new products soon to be released, and patent battles being fought on all fronts in the courts of law, I think it's important to keep in mind the old expression: "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!" Truly, hasn't this week been a great example of that.
With the court cases bringing out details Apple would just as likely have preferred to keep private, we have been granted a rare insight into the evolution of products in the Apple iDevice chain, as well as having been given glimpses into what Apple had in mind, in prototype form, two years ago.
That said, can you imagine what Cupertino has in store for us in say, 5 years? That's not that long. Think about it. Within 5 years, devices and functions that are now, only in prototype/patent form, may very well be seeing the light of day. It's not for nothing that Johny Ive says that the products Apple is working on now, are some of the best, most exciting products Apple has ever invented!

myCharge does it all... iPad, iPhone, Android, and does it in style, and talks too!

I've used a variety of external battery packs over the years, but none have met all of my needs, until now. The Peak from myCharge packs plenty of power, with up to 6000mAh but what really helps is the built-in 30pin Apple PLUS microUSB connectors, and an on-board USB port. And most importantly, that 30pin cable provides enough juice to power an iPad. This means you don't have to worry about lost cables, and you can be charging up to three devices at a time. The other bonus is fold out wall prongs to recharge the Peak.
