Cases and Covers

Picture this scenario... You've got your expensive smartphone in your hand and then suddenly it slips out and everything switches to slow motion as you watch your phone tumble to the ground. Your heart sinks as you pick it up to inspect the damage. Nightmare right? So how do you prevent drops? Do you use [...]

Today is the event where Apple will unveil their new MacBooks. I'm not in the market for a new one for myself since my 13" MBP is only a couple years old, but I really like the looks of WaterField's new Maxwell Sleeves. These sleeves are made in San Francisco and come in three different [...]

I am about as AR as it gets when it comes to my tech-gear. I do my very best to keep it in perfect condition but hate bulky cases that take away from the devices' sleek and slim form factor. I would prefer using my smartphone naked (aka no case) but would mentally kick myself if [...]

I recently reviewed the BodyGuardz new Pure 2 aluminosilicate glass screen protector, in addition to this next-gen screen protector BodyGuardz has released several new cases for the iPhone 7 and 7 [...]

Although I ultimately decided that I would not pursue using an iPhone 7 as my daily driver smartphone, I'm still a little bummed about one thing... All the really nice cases that are always available for iPhones. iPhones definitely get more love from case makers than Android phones which isn't really surprising given that there [...]

You just spent mega money on Apple's newest and most bestest iPhone ever and now you need to buy a worthy case to protect it. You don't want to settle on a plastic case with a laughable price tag of $10 do you? That would be so wrong when you can be the envy of your [...]

Managing cables and dongles is getting easier, but the curse of mobile battery usage and the need for chargers is still with us. Traveling with your full kit for a few days can really escalate that, since you usually have to dig out the chargers that live under your desk, or under/beside your bed. As [...]

The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are a formidable duo. The iPad Pro is fast, has a crisp, bright display, and the response of the Pencil on that display is something to behold. I don't use the pencil much, but I do like to have it with me. If you've not seen it, it is [...]

Wallet phone cases have been around for a while. Not the slip-a-few-cards-in-the-back cases, but the fold-over, cover-the-screen type wallet cases. Most have an elastic band to hold them closed, but they are all fraught with difficulties, not the least of which is holding your entire wallet up to your ear during a phone call. Enter [...]

I have reviewed several of Vaja's Leather Suits over the years. All perfectly fitted for each of my Apple laptops and constructed with some of the finest materials available. Each Suit was handcrafted by artisans who created a, for lack of a better word, piece of art to protect my various MacBooks. And the Leather Suit for [...]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSKMvnmyoMY If you have a smartphone, then you also have a smartphone that has fingerprints and smudges on the screen. It's unavoidable when the screen is made of glass and are fingers are dirty and greasy from all manner of reasons. Yuck. If you're like me, you probably turn the phone over and rub the [...]

When I was in grade school, I can remember having a Donny and Marie lunchbox and a Gunsmoke lunch box. I probably had others, but those are the only two that I can still remember. I would have been way more cool if I had one of this guitar shaped lunch box from SUCK UK. [...]

The iPhone 6/6s Plus, the largest of Apple's iconic smartphone, has gotten a bit of a raw deal in the case market. Time and again, Julie has sent out review product notices, and they will be for every iPhone on the market - except the iPhone 6/6s Plus. Well, the artisans at Distil Union have [...]

I like simple phone cases.  Unfortunately, most cases kind of detract from the original, simple lines of the iPhone.  The Terrapin TPU cases are simple and effective.  Let's take a look. I was sent a white and a black sample. The cases are smooth and shiny on the outside, and unusually matte on the inside. [...]
