Whatever you're doing on a daily basis, don't let your iPhone become a victim. Instead, check out these cases and see which one best suits your lifestyle and your personality.
Also, check out this week's Win to see how you can score a pack of sweet Speck cases, including the one featured in this week's Best Case Scenario.
It's been quite a while since the iPad's initial release, but plenty of companies are still debuting cases that can help your tablet device get through even the most perilous of situations. This week, for Best Case Scenario, we're reviewing the rugged Trident Kraken, the tough Otterbox iPad Defender Series, the camoflauged Sumo iPad sleeve and the stylish Sena Collega.
If you've got fingers the size of Snickers bars and find the iPad's on screen keyboard on the difficult side of sanity to use for typing anything more robust than a quick email, you'll want to pay attention to the BL-BKB76 case made by the Shenzhen Paoluy Silicone Technology Company, and recently registered with the FCC.
Taking Apple’s lead, Chinese carrier China Unicom will head off iPhone 4 trouble at the pass by giving every customer a free case with their purchase in an effort to prevent the controversy that sprung up here in the United States over the handset’s antenna design.
Cases--we needed them to shield our iPhone 4s and our iPads from the inevitable crash and burn they could suffer after months of hardcore usage. Not only that, but with all the movies you're making with your iPhone 4, there's bound to be a time you'll drop it onto the floor, just to see that gorgeous retina display shatter into a million little pieces. Or, at least, force you to high tail it to the Apple Store for a replacement unit.
Oh, those nutty case manufacturers and their product leaks which drive Apple so crazy! With the iPad and the iPhone 4 launch behind us, the rumor mill is churning with news of what the fourth generation iPod touch may look like -- and here’s a reportedly “reliable” leak that may hold the answer.
This week's podcast follows the adventures of Florence, Susie and Nic as they decipher the true meaning behind Apple's free Bumper program. Also, iBooks got an update to look even sexier on the iPhone 4's retina display and the Mac Paint source code is donated to the the Computer History Museum.

The best way to personalize your new iPhone 4 is with a case, especially now that Apple has gone on record by recommending one to solve reception issues caused by the handset’s antenna. However, it appears that the early crop of cases -- including Apple’s own Bumpers -- leave a lot to be desired.
Apple's iPhone Bumpers are doing surprisingly well. Shipping is actually delayed for several colors, including pink, orange, blue and white--which we can't help assuming is because of Apple's decision to omit the white iPhone 4 from its debut date. The colored Bumpers won't be shipping until July 16th, though the black Bumpers will be readily available come June 24th.
