As an iPad user, I am always interested in seeing what new covers and sleeves are available. I especially like the "non-form-fitting" sleeves, so that I can use them with other covers, backing cases, etc. Such is the Lorton and Horn iPad sleeve.

There's nothing more tragic than taking badly lit selfies snapped with your new iPhone 6. Don't subject the world, Instagram, Facebook, etc with your dimly or overexposed duck-faced pictures anymore.

I'm a diabetic who has been able to keep my condition under control through diet and exercise. I was diagnosed 10 years ago and since that time I've become pretty lax on checking my blood sugar levels as regularly as I should. Ok I'll be honest, I'm lucky if I check my blood sugar once [...]
