You've got to hand it to Verizon Wireless -- the nation's largest carrier isn't afraid to go it alone rather than leap into a pricing war with its three smaller rivals. But could their attachment to traditional two-year contracts, higher prices and handset subsidies be short-sighted? For now, executives claim no, and they seem to have the numbers to back it up. This and more in our Monday recap!
Milo is a great little stand, with a microsuction pad to hold your iPhone or iPod touch (or other smartphone, I guess, if you gotta play it like that) in either portrait or landscape orientation. Bluelounge has a newer aluminum version for $29.95, but the original plastic version is just as good -- and only $14.95.
It’s not often that we absolutely fall in love with iPhone/iPad stands. Frankly, they’re so utilitarian that there’s not much to set one apart from another. They hold up your device -- and that’s about it. Besides, any inanimate object could theoretically handle that challenge, like a sufficiently sized rock or your sleeping cat. But after spending some time with both the desktop and foldable versions of Rokstand, we don’t want anything else propping up our iOS devices.
This week's Best Case Scenario is doing something a little different. Instead of individual reviews, we picked out some of the more interesting iPad and iPhone cases showcased on the Macworld Expo 2011 showfloor and put 'em into a nifty gallery. Click through to get a glimpse at some of the cases coming out this year, and make sure to tune in to Maclife.com, and our Twitter and Facebook feeds, for more Expo coverage.
