  • Proporta Beach Bouy video: Blogger abs

    This dude has a hot tub, abs, and a voice that just screams “Dude. Let’s have two beers instead of just one.” In which factory do they manufacture these bloggers? Our factory only turns out guys like Doug and I: manly because our pants are big. via MobilityToday Read More

  • The iPhone case that's designed for the blind and visually impaired

    The iPhone case that's designed for the blind and visually impaired

    Okay, we have here the greatest iPhone accessory ever invented. It’s the Silicon Touch iPhone case, and it makes using the iPhone a hell of a lot easier for the visually impaired. (Random fact: I’m legally blind in New York without my glasses.) It’d work with an iPhone App to make it so that people can feel what they’re typing, be it the SMS icon or actual… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: 15% off Proporta iPod (et al.) cases

    CrunchDeals: 15% off Proporta iPod (et al.) cases

    Proporta makes a whole host of cases and the like for the iPod, iPhone and every other [inferior] device in between. To celebrate Thanksgiving week, the company is offering 15 percent off on all its goods. You’ll need to input the promotion code “TURKEY” (minus the quotation marks) at checkout.

  • Thermaltake Xpressar RCS100: Fridge-like cooling

    Thermaltake Xpressar RCS100: Fridge-like cooling

    The Thermaltake Xpressar RCS100 is basically a mini-fridge PC case, keeping the insides at a cool 50 to 70 degrees. How is this possible? I have no idea, except that it’s “the world’s first DC inverter-type micro refrigeration cooling system,” according to the Inquirer. Also, it looks pretty clean inside — not as many tubes and whatnot as a typical… Read More

  • By the power of Amun-Ra, chargeth thine iPhone!

    By the power of Amun-Ra, chargeth thine iPhone!

    Someday I’ll tell my son about how we used to have to “plug” things in to the wall, at which point he’ll roll his eyes and speed off on his Back to the Future Part II hoverboard to go hang out with the creepy old Doc Brown. Oh the adventures those two will have! Ted, don’t forget to wind your watch! Wait, that’s not the right movie. Read More

  • Antec ‘Skeleton’ open-air PC case

    Antec ‘Skeleton’ open-air PC case

    You guys! Look at this thing! It’s the Skeleton, a PC case from Antec unlike any other PC case you’ve ever seen before. At first glance, I mistook it for a little Weber grill. ROFL! It’s not available yet – coming soon, though – and there’s no pricing information, but here are some quick stats to prime your pump. Four drive bays – two external… Read More

  • Belkin announces a bajillion new iPod cases

    New iPods mean new cases and boy, oh boy, does Belkin have some new cases. There are about 12 different types of cases, along with many different and varied color options and whatnot. They’ll be available in mid-September (so, like, next week) and will run for between $14.99 and $29.99. Hit the jump for a gallery of photos. Read More

  • Pelican's 6-pack laptop case for bulletproof blogging

    Pelican's 6-pack laptop case for bulletproof blogging


    Picture this, if you will: CES, 2009. All the gadget people are gearing up for the big rush onto the show floor when the CrunchGear posse rolls up in black Navigators. As we walk towards the terrified lesser bloggers in slow motion, the strapping and dangerous John Biggs swings out a single enormous case, marked “Pelican.” Brandishing it like a scimitar, he flourishes and lays it… Read More

  • NZXT's Whisper case: sweet, quiet, and cool full tower

    NZXT's Whisper case: sweet, quiet, and cool full tower


    And I was just beginning to tire of my little mid tower, how convenient. This Whisper case from NZXT is right up my alley. I don’t need portability, or fancy acrylic siding, but what I do need is lots of space and quiet running. And with foam padding all over the inside of this mother and room for nine hard drives in there, I think I should be safe. Hopefully I’ll be able to tell… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Mophie iPod cases for 99 cents

    CrunchDeals: Mophie iPod cases for 99 cents

    If you’re like me and still have an older gen iPod (I have a 4th gen 30GB photo) and haven’t encased it into some silicone, but you’re in the market then you might want to take a look at Mophie’s cornucopia of 99 cent cases for iPod videos, Classics and Nanos. Read More

  • More info about MobileEdge TSA-friendly laptop cases

    More info about MobileEdge TSA-friendly laptop cases

    Here are some actual product shots of the TSA-friendly MobileEdge cases that we covered about a week ago. I’m still not 100% convinced that TSA bags, in general, can live up to the promise of substantially increasing airport security lines. It’ll only take one screening agent to throw a fit when someone hasn’t removed their laptop, only to find out that it was in a… Read More

  • Belkin’s Eee cases coming to Target in September

    Belkin’s Eee cases coming to Target in September

    The Asus Eee PC has been successful with “ordinary” people, too. You know, the kind that buy laptop cases at Target — or even the Eee itself. Owners of the tiny netbook will be able to buy three stylish protective cases this September, all for under $25. From left to right, the polyester Mini Laptop Quilted Case will run $19.99, the neoprene Mini Laptop Carrying Case will… Read More

  • More TSA-friendly laptop bags coming soon

    More TSA-friendly laptop bags coming soon

    Just got word last night that Mobile Edge, fine purveyor of notebook-friendly bags and backpacks, has created three new cases that meet all TSA requirements for checkpoint-friendliness. The company is currently testing the bags at the Ontario Airport in California and will make final changes before going into full production soon. We’ve got the three designs here. Actual photos of… Read More

    NZXT Reeks Khaos gaming chassis: ROAR!


    NZXT just released the Reeks Khaos gaming chassis with curved plates, two 120 mm fans, and a thick aluminium frame. It will be available in June for $399. It includes 11 5.25″ inch bays for maximum expansion and looks like it could kill us all. Read More

    MacBook Air Shield provides port access, costs $50

    Here is a protective apparatus from Agent 18 for your precious MacBook Air, called the MacBook Air Shield. It costs $50 and comes in white, black, or pink. Guess what else?! It allows you to plug stuff into the ports on the side of your MacBook Air and “features an opening for the notebook’s vents to prevent overheating,” which you can see in that U-shaped area of the… Read More

  • Computers go caseless to cool their cores

    Computers go caseless to cool their cores

    When I was in high school I had a friend who upgraded from a 250MB to a 1GB. I thought that was a huge drive at the time (it was), at least as far as capacity went. It was a 3.5-inch drive, much smaller than the 5.25-inch drive he was replacing, but sadly his old computer didn’t have a slot to fit the smaller drive, so we improvised. Duct tape and copper wire saved the day, and we were… Read More

  • PsyStar upgrades… their cases

    PsyStar upgrades… their cases

    PsyStar, everyone’s favorite litigation landmine, has upgraded their cases for their standard PCs. Not much news except that we wish that we had received this model rather than the janky one we got. Read More

  • iPowerJacket protects and charges your iPhone

    This interesting accessory appears to be a case with a built-in secondary battery/dock combo that recharges your iPhone. The product’s web site is scant on details and the contact page says “We are looking for distributors for the United States and Europe,” so it’s tough to tell if and when you’d be able to buy one of these iPowerJackets. UPDATE: Apparently you… Read More
