Internet activist (and Crunchies winner) Andrew Auernheimer’s sentencing trial will take place on March 18, 2013 at 10:30am. Auernheimer aka Weev revealed a security flaw in AT&T’s iPad user database, allowing him to scrape the data from 114,000 iPad users. He later published the data. The FBI investigated and filed a criminal complaint in January 2011. A full recounting of his arrest can be… → Read More
With the advent of cheap 3D printing, I was wondering when someone would jump into the completely custom iPhone case market. Netherlands-based Polychemy has just released iPhone and Blackberry cases in five unique styles complete with 3D customizations.
The cases cost $40 and you can have your name or #YOLO printed on the back. Your choice. They come in four colors. → Read More
Element Case just came out with two iPhone 4 cases, the Forumla 4 (above) and the Ion 4 (below). The Formula 4 is a full-body case while the Ion 4 is more of a bumper. Rather than sell their cases and make any money, they’d like to give them to you. It’s a new freemium business model they’re trying out. Here’s how to win… → Read More
Rather than waste your entire morning forcing you to read two iPad 2 case reviews (I think I could barely read one at a sitting, but but these are important enough to look at more closely), I’ve decided to mush together two reviews into one megareview, the way Voltron is made up of multiple robots. To that end, I present to you an assessment of the Speck Pixelskin HD Wrap and their recently… → Read More
http://player.ooyala.com/player.swf?embedCode=c4NGFlMjoem1Q2DXLwMaYYmyhzXl9xJu&version=2 Short version: The original Element Case Vapor certainly looked slick, but it had problems accepting larger 1/8″ headphone plugs — like the original iPhone. The latest revision, the Vapor Pro, addresses some of the complaints, but there is still an issue with the design. → Read More
O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet. → Read More
If you’re in need of a sexy sleeve for your new Sandy Bridge/Thunderbolt MacBook Pro, you might consider picking up one of these from Acme Made. I reviewed a couple of their bags a while back and I know them to be pretty solid, with nice materials.
These two new entries are available only in Apple Stores, though, so you’ll have to move your feet around to get ‘em. → Read More
Here’s a neat treat for those of you still up. Element Case is going to giveaway their new Vapor Pro case for iPhone. It doesn’t even come out until tomorrow (don’t you feel special). You can enter here by dropping a comment or retweeting this post (@crunchgear) before Thursday at 9am. Tell us why you want the case. → Read More
Happy Thursday! CafePress, makers of customized T-shirts and books and mugs and stuff, wants to give you, the fine people of CG, 100 CrunchGear iPhone 4 cases. Why? Because you guys are b to the a to the d to the a to the double snakes, that’s why.
This is a random for one of 100 CrunchGear iPhone cases and entering is pretty darn simple. → Read More
Truth be told, I never heard of FRANCK MULLER before, but the (apparently quite famous) watch brand from Switzerland has designed a special case for the iPhone 4 that can now be pre-ordered in Japan. And as FRANCK MULLER is a luxury brand, each case will set you back a cool $1,270 [JP]. → Read More
Ekocase, not to be confused with singer Neko Case, makes green iPad cases out of bamboo and paper, turning your iPad into a cross between a finely bound book and a Moleskine. It is so eco-friendly, in fact, that it is made almost entirely of recyclable materials including a nylon strap that can be reused in future projects. I mean check this out: → Read More
I don’t know which iPhone 4 cover is sillier, the sushi version we showed you last week or this new Valentine’s Day cake-style model (in both cases, buyers get a cover with realistic-looking (plastic) food glued to it). With the Valentine’s Day model, you get strawberries, cranberries etc. placed on top of a thin layer of “chocolate cake”. → Read More
If you’re anything like me, you love off-road ATV riding in the nude. Most of the time I’ve been safe and sound on my high perch above those four grinding wheels but sometimes I slide off into a rough patch and my dermis – which by now is a patchwork of scars and partially healed lacerations – faces some rough treatment. But not so my iPhone for it is kept inside a Trident Cyclops iPhone case, a… → Read More
So here’s an honest question: how do you guys go about looking for and buying an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch case? Do you go to device-specific sites (like iLounge) and look up case reviews? Troll message boards? Search on Amazon for “iphone case”? Or do you go to Wal-Mart (or wherever), go to the iPhone aisle, and pick up the first thing you see? I haven’t bought a case since the days of the iPod… → Read More
How do you guys feel about PC cases these days? Are you a fan of the over-the-top styling that so many of them feature, or would you like something a little more staid? I ask because NZXT has a new case called the Phantom. It’s not too crazy—there’s no spinning lights or any of that jazz—and it’s a full tower. That’s key in case you want to rock dual video cards or want to add… → Read More
Proporta, case makers to the stars, is offering 20% off some of its iPhone 4 cases if you return your free bumper case to them. Why would you do this? I’m not quite sure. → Read More
When I release vapor, people clear the room. When Element Cases does it, heads turn every which way. This new iPhone 4 case by Element Case is a 30 gram aluminium frame lined with shock absorbant rubber. It looks absolutely gorgeous and will begin shipping on July 11. Bad part? It costs $79.95 for the basic model and $99.95 for the carbon fiber back plate. But trust me – these cases are… → Read More
