    Yours For $1,270: FRANCK MULLER Case For iPhone 4

  • Ekocase: Ecologically Sound iPad Cases For All (Plus A Contest)

    Ekocase: Ecologically Sound iPad Cases For All (Plus A Contest)

    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

  • Silly Valentine's Day Cake iPhone Cover

    Silly Valentine's Day Cake iPhone Cover

    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

    New iPhone Case Idea: iPhone Holster Design Project

    Need a very special iPhone or iPod case but didn’t find anything yet? Kickstarter, the site that helps people fund product ideas and concepts, might have the right one in store for you: designer Myles Christensen just needs $3,000 to start his design project “iPhone Holster”. Read More

  • Review: Trident Cyclops iPhone Case

    Review: Trident Cyclops iPhone Case

    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… Read More

  • Handmade Natural Bamboo Case/Cradle For The iPad

    Handmade Natural Bamboo Case/Cradle For The iPad

    The iPad is surely seeing no shortage of accessories. So far, we have seen weird, expensive, and potentially useful ones. But what about a “handmade natural bamboo case/cradle” that’s tailor-made for the device? Read More

  • Fancy Moleskin iPhone & iPad Cases Prompt Question: What Do You Look For In A Case?

    Fancy Moleskin iPhone & iPad Cases Prompt Question: What Do You Look For In A Case?

    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… Read More

  • NZXT's Phantom case does a whole lot but doesn't look completely ridiculous

    NZXT's Phantom case does a whole lot but doesn't look completely ridiculous

    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… Read More

    Element Cases releases Vapor

    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… Read More

  • The Guardian case from M-Edge is a life jacket for the Kindle

    The Guardian case from M-Edge is a life jacket for the Kindle

    Whenever I head to the community pool, I usually take a book to read. It works well to hide my wondering eyes, but also gives me something to look at when I would otherwise be ‘distracted’. Recently I have seen a few Kindles floating around at the pool, great idea, but I couldn’t see taking that expensive device any further than my front porch. Read More

  • NZXT's Vulcan is probably the sweetest Micro-ATX case out there

    NZXT's Vulcan is probably the sweetest Micro-ATX case out there

    I’ve never succumbed to the Micro-ATX temptation, but I can see the draw. Not everyone has room for a full tower under their desk, and not everyone even wants the kind of hardware you generally fill a full tower with. If your graphics card is under a foot long, and your CPU doesn’t need an 8-inch tall cooling apparatus, you might find Micro-ATX to your liking. And with this new… Read More

  • Two awesome Gundam PC cases

    Two awesome Gundam PC cases

    We all know Japan is Gundam country (I’ll go cover the newly opened Gundam Cafe in Tokyo next week) and that Akihabara is heaven for PC geeks and modders. So what can you expect when you combine both things? Not one but two cool Gundam PC cases. Read More

    Mouse pad enthusiasts, this is your bag

    Hey guys. Hanging out on a pile of rocks with your laptop bags, huh? Can I join you? No? Why, because I don’t have my own laptop bag? Ah, I see. Laptop Bag Owners Club members only, eh? Tough but fair. If I buy one of those bags can I join you? No? Ah, I see. The Laptop Bag Owners Club is also known as the No Dougs Club, too. Gotcha. What if I change my first na—just no? No, in… Read More

    Another case with a hole in it points to iPods with cameras


    Them Engadget boys went for a walk in the outer reaches of IFA and came up with the some iPod cases with holes in the back for a camera. As I’ve said before I have no idea what is going here. Apple’s non-disclosure language probably explicitly prohibits these from existing and, more importantly, these companies will probably never get Made for iPod certification after… Read More

    Thermaltake and BMW have teamed up to create the “Level 10” PC case, which is on display at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany this week. The case definitely looks interesting, with all the components outside the case yet inside their own compartments. It kind of looks like one of those apartment complexes in a warm climate where the elevators are indoors but the hallways… Read More
