Since the iPad debuted a couple of years ago, people have been trying to turn it into a low-cost, lightweight replacement laptop. Adding a Bluetooth keyboard is a good start, of course, but then you’re stuck lugging around two separate items. That’s hardly an argument for being able to simplify your life with an iPad. Or is it? Logitech’s Fold-Up Keyboard turns your iPad into a Transformer, letting you use it tablet-style, or with a full-size keyboard when you need a productivity boost.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, I review four very interesting iPhone 4/4S cases. Two of the cases hold your credit cards, two of them are made of genuine, real cow-hide leather, and one of them is scratch-resistant. Read on to find out who, what, where, and why!
These days, almost everyone has an iPhone. Most of us make our phones stand out from the crowd with a $10-$30 protective case that reflects our personal aesthetics, but for some people that just isn't good enough.
So, what do the world's richest do to keep their iPhones exclusive? Encrust them with diamonds, dip them in gold, and restructure them with other fine materials, of course. Check out these shining examples of the most ridiculously extravagant mods money can buy for your iPhone.
They say the best camera is the one you always carry. For most of us, that camera is the iPhone. Now, no one's saying an iPhone will take better pictures than a DSLR, but it does make for an awfully decent point and shoot, and has a ton of options (nay, apps!) for instantly sharing your photos. These accessories will help you make the photos and videos you take with your iPhone even better, and help close the gap between your iPhone and your other cameras.
Rumors are good. Rumors are what keep the web going and what keeps the Apple blogs thriving. Rumors are the blood that flows through our blog veins. If we didn't have any rumors to gossip about, we wouldn't have any speculation, and then I couldn't make a big deal out of this press release I got in my inbox just a second ago.
Alongside the abundance of iPhone 5 rumors has been just about an equal amount of "iPhone 4S" rumors. The cheaper iPhone 4 would be released along with the iPhone 5, in what is appearing more likely to be an October launch. The phone would contain different components and less storage in an effort to lower manufacturing costs. But one thing that may not be different? The case.
I don’t consider myself a germaphobe. But I also never, ever want to put anything into the seat-back pocket in airplanes. Have you looked in one of those lately? Candy wrappers, pretzel crumbs, wadded-up napkins and tissues, sometimes worse. But when your carry-on is stowed overhead, you still want your entertainment devices within easy reach. On my last flight, the Cocoon Grid-It Wrap earned its wings by keeping my iPad, iPhone, stylus, earbuds, headphone splitter, gum, and ChapStick together, keeping ’em organized, and keeping them from touching anything in that nasty seat-back pocket.
Mac|Lifers, let it be known that I was wrong. Really, severely wrong. Your precious iPhone 4 may be extinct in just a few short months, but the case companies, they are still a-makin' them. And that means we're still reviewing them! If you just adopted an iPhone 4 into your home, you might want to check out this week's Best Case Scenario, featuring a brushed aluminum case from id America and a tough shell from Incipio. There's also two cases for your iPad 2, including a beautiful vintage leather case made in Spain and a back cover from Targus that pairs well with your SmartCover.
