Caseinity's novel Cord-on-Board case ensures you always have a USB cable

image
It happens all the time. You need a USB cable to charge or sync your iPhone but you can't find one. Caseinity has come up with a novel approach, by including a short cable clipped to the interior of their case.


The case comes in white or black, although the short USB cable is white in either case. There is some added thickness, as you might imagine but it's not excessive and it incorporates a honeycomb protection layer, so you're getting a decent case with a nice extra.

Bloomberg reports on forthcoming iPhone 5

image

A Bloomberg video report offers a nice overview of the forthcoming iPhone in an interview with a market analyst at Jefferies. The information Jefferies gives is based on their market analysts' travel abroad in Asia digging for information. Again, the word is that the iPhone 5 will be about the same width, but taller, resulting in a 4-inch display with a different aspect ratio than the current iPhone. They also say that it will be slimmer, thanks to the use of in-cell technology.



Review: Teething by William Robinson

image

Retro seems to be a popular thing on the iOS platform, and Teething does a great job of personifying that mentality.  Between the pixilated graphics, bouncy chip tunes and simple game play I feel like I’m delving into a first generation NES game or maybe even an LED marvel with supped up aesthetics.  Either way it’s an amusing game to play, at least for a while.  I’m just afraid that without much fluff it won’t have any staying power.



Crystal Couture Cases are a cut above but at a price below other crystal cases

image

In the nearly four years I've been writing for iPhone life Magazine, I've never ever recommended a Swarovski style crystal iPhone case for several reasons. First, they end to be fragile as the crystals fall off, ruining the look, and second they tend to be very expensive, in the $100+ range. That becomes even more expensive when you consider it won't last long. So I was pleased to see, feel, and try the latest cases from Crystal Couture Cases at last month's CE Week in New York City.

My brother-in-law is constantly dropping his phone in lakes, ponds, pools, etc. Fortunately, he only uses cheap, easily replaceable 'feature phones' but for those of us who care about keeping our smartphones dry, there's LOKSAK.

AppGear has thrown the gaming industry a loop, by combining the increasingly popular touchscreen interface with real world, physical elements for a whole new form of hands-on gameplay. This shouldn't be a surprise, as AppGear is part of WowWee, the people who brought robotics to the toy box.



Bubble Grubble App Review

A good majority of app downloads are in the form of mobile games. These games come in many forms, but the favorite category of games is physics based games, with puzzles to solve in free time. Bubble Grubble fits the description of a perfect game to play whenever you’re bored or when you have a little extra time on your hands. It’s one of those games that can keep you entertained for as long as you need it to, keeping your mind trying to figure out the next puzzle. Bubble Grubble is a simple looking game, but it takes thought to feed those birds.



Android watch out; Apple finally granted patent for iOS user interface

image

Things are getting interesting. The smartphone world has copied Apple, and yesterday Apple was granted a patent for a mobile user interface that comprises patent applications going all the way back to 2007. At a time when smartphone makers were covering their phones with buttons and more buttons, Apple was imagining a phone without buttons and a multitouch interface and all the other features that are now so familiar. Steve Jobs hated the fact that Android had copied Apple, and earlier this year CEO Tim Cook said "From our point of view, it's important that Apple not be the developer for the world.
