So, maybe Apple isn't making an HDTV after all? We'd actually be okay with that right now, given that Cupertino has plenty of cool stuff on their plate for the rest of the year, and frankly we're kind of sick of hearing analysts fawn over the possibility. (We're also not quite yet ready to buy a new HDTV for our own living room, so… just a little bit longer, hmm'kay, Apple?) This and several other stories make up our recap for this funky Friday, August 24, 2012.
Everyone knows Moleskine as the ubiquitous black hardcover notebook for writers. The company has managed to make itself relevant in these digital times by releasing a plethora of products to cater to everyone, including LEGO-themed notebooks for kids, travel notebooks for jet setters, and notebooks with watercolor paper for artists. But with the prevalence of tablets and eReaders, many users may be picking up their iPad before they reach for the Moleskine. For that reason, Moleskine has released a Digital Shell Case that's mean to house your iPad or Kindle and carry your writing materials.
Every other week, I review a handful of different cases for your iOS and Mac devices. But is there anything that I haven't covered that you'd like to see in Best Case Scenario? Leave a comment after the cut and let me know what, and if, you've been looking forward to seeing a review of an interesting looking case from a particular brand.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, I'm just picking from the pile of the leftovers. With the great lot of iOS device users impatiently awaiting the next big (or small? Pre-paid?) iPhone, it's slim pickings here in the land of case reviewing. But this week, we've got iPad 2 cases that feature Andy Warhol's famed banana, green pillowy leather and the toughness of a thousand Rhino skills. Read on! Or, sail on, because I like nautical imagery (and themed pashminas!).
This week, we've got three apps that help you get those goals completed, pay those bills, remember to feed your dependents (plants count, too), and even get inspired with more ideas! But remember: you don't have to start being productive today of all days. It's Friday, after all! It can wait until Monday. Anything can wait until Monday.
This week's Best Case Scenario is essentially part deux of last week's iPad 2 round up. We got a couple more cases in over the weekend from various manufacturers and have had a chance to try them out with our new tablet device. This week, we've got cases from Incipio, Targus and a very special case from Pad & Quill.
Attention hipsters: Your iOS device case has arrived! Moleskine--purveyors of fine paper products enjoyed around the world--has made yet another decidedly device-centric attempt to increase their stranglehold on the hearts and minds of the scribbling public. A few months ago, we bore witness to the company's first foray into the tech world with what they've opted to call an analog-digital hybrid: A Kindle cover that, in addition to providing some stylish protection to Amazon's one-trick pony e-book reader, also offers Moleskine aficionados the ability to keep the company's signature creamy off-white paper close at hand by building a notepad right into the case's cover. As of this morning, Apple device users have also been extended the ability to add a bit of class to their iPhone 3G/3GS as Moleskine has announced the addition of cases for your cherished iOS devices to their covet-worthy Folio Digital product line.
