Twelve South's BookBook Travel Journal case may be the only thing you need to travel with your iPad and its accessories.  The leather-bound, hardcover "book" conceals a lot of electronics inside a case that looks like a travel journal - not like a gear bag that's filled with expensive gadgets.  There's room for your iPad, [...]

I've always loved those little decorated sugar skulls that are used in the celebration of the Day of the Dead.  This case from Joshua Harker uses that iconic image in an iPhone case for iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5.  The Crania Revolutis case is a bumper-style case with the decorative skull added to the back.

I always liked the Bumper case I had for my iPhone 4.  I liked that it added a little color and some grip to my slick, white iPhone without obscuring the beauty of the phone.  I always wished they had included a polycarbonate cover for the back to prevent scratches to the glass, though.  Griffin [...]

I've seen a lot of iPhone cases, but I've never seen one that makes the back of an iPhone 5 look like the back of a Florence Knoll sofa.  The Cushion Wrap Case is a brand new offering from ADOPTED, a "fashion tech accessories brand".  The Cushion Wrap is made of their "patent-pending metallized frame [...]

Most cases for tech gear have a certain "look".  Whether it's made of fabric or leather, you can usually tell at a glance that the bag or case contains tech gear inside.  That's fine, if you don't mind having a bag that advertises "expensive gear in here!"  If you prefer to camouflage your gear a [...]

As I've said before, I do like a quirky case for my electronics.  The IH-IM1106 Composition Book Case for iPad mini from iHome certainly meets the quirky criteria.  It's about the same size and certainly has the same appearance as those composition notebooks so familiar to school children.  You could even fill in the label [...]

With the exception of my cellphone, no other gadget spends more time in my hand than my Nexus 7. I use it for gaming, email, web surfing, social media engagement, music, videos, RSS reader, Skyping, and as a bedtime alarm clock. I am always looking for accessories for it.  Kinda like those people who are [...]
