With the unveiling of the iPhone 5s and 5c, our real deals today are focused on cases that will work with the flagship product that Cupertino loves so much.

So have these babies at the ready when your new handset gets to your hot little hands. And finally get yourself some orange for your iPhone 5c. It's the missing color!

We've got a bevy of refurb Macs for you back-to-schoolers who want a great laptop at a great price, but we've also got a handful or three of accessories to protect the rest of your Apple gear. Or to turn a decent attempt at drawing on your iPad into an awesome one. That and more after the jump.
We got rumors and we got betas this week as Apple news moves into the summer's concluding month before the fall rumor season really heats up. Blackberry tries to stay relevant, some new games hit the consoles, and it feels like Apple TV is getting some of its due. More just like that inside.

PC sales are falling everywhere, and that extends to to Macs as well according to the news from Apple's quarterly earnings report earlier today. But as with our earlier news with the iPad's shocking dominance in Internet traffic, there's a silver lining to the news about Macs. Citing the appeal of the new MacBook Air's longer battery life, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer announced that the thin laptop had witnessed its strongest launch to date, according to AppleInsider.
