iSmartCase iPod Touch Case Review

This is going to be a very short review. Not because I don’t like the product, but because there really isn’t much to talk about. The iSmartCase is a protective case designed to keep your iPod touch safe. There are a million and one different cases out there that you can buy. However this case is basically a glorified eyeglass case. I do understand the reasoning for this design. I will say that it is fantastic for when you are transporting your device. But not so much when it comes to actually using your device. Read More →

Fresh Riffs?…Try the Altoids amp

mint_tin_pocket_guitarampThis little beauty, otherwise known as the “Mint Tin Pocket Amp” is great for that guitar player on the go.  We all knew that Altoids tins were good for storing certain things… However, who would have thought they could be used for this?  This mini amp is for the guitar player that just has to have it all and it only costs $40.  This amp/tin is powered by a single 9v battery and has just enough room for your headphones and amp jack.  This mini amp is great if you are in a group of people or a classroom and you happen to have your guitar with you and you just have to hear that riff that is playing over and over in your head.  In other words I don’t know how practical this thing is but at least it looks cool and it will definitely start conversations.   If you think this is different check out the other stuff that the people over at have…  All I can say now is ROCK ON!
