As I have stated before in a previous post, I am a usability guy. I would rather have a vanilla looking product that works well, rather than some razzle dazzle, all looks, nonfunctional product any day.

I recently purchased a new iPhone 5 to use as my personal/work phone. I did a lot of research before I made the financial commitment to purchase that phone. One of the first things I did after deciding to buy my new phone was to research ways to protect it. There are a lot of [...]
