    OtterBox’s new case offers a battery, speakers, Square reader and other swappable functionality

    I spotted an OtterBox case on the train ride in this morning that more or less confirmed my feelings about the company’s products: big, bulky and protective.

It’s kind of uncomfortable and slightly awkward, but hey, you never know… Read More
