The S-View Flip Cover cases for Samsung Galaxy S5

on Monday, September 1st, 2014

Equalizer case for iPhone 5/5s

on Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Although the lights on the back of this iPhone 5/5s case look like an equalizer display, they don’t actually react to specific frequencies and the max levels are pre-set.  They will react to any music or ambient sound, and they look cool and add interest to what would normally be a plain, black cover overRead More…

Drop protection for your iPad minus the case

on Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Two of my favorite things about the iPad Air and iPad mini are their size and style. Even though I’m more drawn to Android devices these days, I still really prefer the way Apple products look and feel. No one does product design like Apple.
