In this edition Best Case Scenario, we're checking out new iPad sleeves from Timbuk2 and Haul, a hardshell case from iSkin, and we've got a special edition of Face Off, our new section where we review two products that are similiar in their utility, but different in their performance. This week, we're taking a look at iPad cases that transform you tablet device into a horizontal-standing Netbook, so you can show off to your Windows-loving brethern that you don't need to drop $300 on a cheap computer just to have the same mobile functionality as a full-sized notebook. Who's laughing now, eh?
If you’ve ever had your iPhone slide into the crack between your front
seats while driving, the appeal of a dedicated car mount is obvious.
While we usually take the “throw it in the cupholder” approach, that’s
not always the best move when you want to actually hear your phone
ringing. Kensington’s latest iPhone car mount attempts to not only keep
your phone handy, but also pumps up the volume enough so that you might
actually hear it ringing.
We’ve all been there: You’re away from home, your iPhone is dead, and you really need to call someone. Or maybe you just hopped on the bus, and the only empty seat is next to that lady who talks to everyone—and your iPod just ran out of juice. Kensington’s battery packs can come to your rescue, recharging a dead iPhone or iPod without the need for a really, really long extension cord.
