Review: Bravo Case for iPhone 5

bravo waterproof iPhone case

Statistically speaking, if your iPhone is going to die an accidental death, it will likely be either from a fall or drowning in the toilet. Just like people. And if you have small kids, the odds of both of those events happening increases 10 fold. But is the fear of an impact or submersion worth having your iPhone encased in some bulky, unstylish rubber and plastic monstrosity... Read More

Awesome Apple TV decals

GameCube-Apple-TV-Skin3_1024x1024

With recent reports predicting a “TV” Apple TV release some time in 2015, it looks like we’ll be stuck with these little black boxes for some time. But that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Check out these sweet Apple TV decals from Killer Duck Decals. At $10 a piece, how can you go wrong?! (well, unless they cause it to overheat or not work of course…) But... Read More

Review: PocketPlug case for iPhone – Never feel powerless again!

Prong PocketPlug

I’ve always been interested in portable charging solutions for my iPhone, which is odd since I am never more than 2 feet from my computer or a USB charging cable. Still, I am a sucker for having a constant charge, which is why Prong’s PocketPlug ($69.95) caught my eye. I’ve always been a big fan of portable battery cases, but the PocketPlug is something different.... Read More

Games That Don’t Suck: Samurai Siege

Samurai Siege

I’ve been putting off writing about Samurai Siege (free) for a few weeks now, primarily because it so closely resembles one of my favorite games (and previous “Games That Don’t Suck” nominee) Clash of Clans. I’m not a fan of games that rip-off other successful game formulas, but I cannot deny that I have been playing the game nearly non-stop and enjoying... Read More

Does the new Mac Pro have upgradeable graphics cards?

Mac Pro upgradeable graphics cards

Does the new Mac Pro have upgradeable graphics cards? Mac4Ever thinks so. In a recent post, the French site claims to have reliable information that the Mac Pro’s dual graphics cards are on a special connecter that would allow them to swapped out, and perhaps to be replaced by other Apple-approved graphics cards in the future. This would be huge news for graphics professionals,... Read More

Apple’s October iPad Event – The Good, the Bad, and the Meh

Apple iPad Event

Apple today held a special event to announce the long overdue updates to their MacBook, Mac Pro, and iPad lines. And while I am such a fanboy there was really never a question whether or not I will be buying something today, that doesn’t mean I’m so easily blinded by shiny things that I can’t pick out a “meh” moment or two from the festivities if pressed.... Read More

MASSIVE UPDATE HITS DRAGONVALE (Game still crashes constantly though)

Today Backflip Studios unveiled a massive update to their popular Dragonvale game for iOS and Android, bringing two new races of dragons to the game – Light and Dark – which appear to be able to be bred with the rest of the existing dragons. In order to summon these new dragons you need to cast light and dark magic into a magical rift. To do this you simply need to... Read More

Microsoft and Apple combine forces to create beautiful music

MacBook orchestra XBox Connect

I have never for one second believed that a music conductor’s arm waving does ANYTHING. (Unless you’re in a Warner Bros. cartoon of course. Then you can make the band do literally ANYTHING!) But for the average orchestra, even a 4th grade one, the musicians do not appear to look up at the conductor once, and his semi-orgasmic gyrations, while giving the audience something... Read More
