Leather is a rugged and beautiful medium to carry and to cover with. Crafted from top grain leather, the TUCH Minimalist sleeves and cases are a wonderful example of a lightweight, sleek and sophisticated case that enhance rather than hide the beauty of the products they carry. The TUCH line is made for the iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
As minimalist products, the one or two piece cases and sleeves are laser cut and assembled by hand with no stitching or glue. They are quite functional cases. The iPhone sleeve doesn’t require removal to charge, change the volume or use the headset jack. There are holes for the speakers as well, so sound is not hindered. The sleeve also holds up to 4 credit cards.
The soft inner lining cradles whatever you’re carrying. TUCH products are made to fit a bit snug in the beginning, but within a week the leather begins to form itself around whatever it’s carrying. The color also begins to age and patina into your unique, tailored piece of work. The Naked products are made of unadulterated veg tanned leather and the aging process is simply beautiful. There is also an Obsidian version that is black through dyed leather. There have been several limited editions as the designer has come across unique leather color and textures.
If you are looking for a beautiful, rugged, sleek and sophisticated carrying case or sleeve for your iPhone, iPad or MacBook, the minimalist leather TUCH products are a reasonably priced option that provides a unique long-lasting protective solution.
In a not-so-inconspicuous reference to the extinct dodo bird of the 17th century, the DODO case for iPad and iPad 3G will offer a hard-shell case protection from extinction for your iPad. Following suit with the Nook and the Kindle for providing stylish, protective cases, the iPad can be used directly from within the case, and there is no need for removal at any time.
The hard case is made to fit the iPad and no other gadget, so it provides a very snug fit tailored exactly to the height, width and thickness of the iPad that it iPad will not fall out of unless shaken violently while upside down.
The 1st edition DODO case is made by hand in San Francisco, California using traditional book binding techniques that have been used for centuries. It gives the appearance of a traditional, Moleskine-style journal, and is a beautiful reference to the combination of new and old media technologies. It comments on Gutenburg’s opening up of doors of information to the public by mass-producing the book, and on how the iPad is opening up portals upon portals of convenient information and entertainment through portable internet. You can even hold the case like a book when reading a web page if you like.
The DODO case also works as a stand for your iPad. By folding the cover of the case back on itself, you can view your iPad in portrait or landscape views, or even flat with a bit of a raised surface to make typing easier.
For those audiophiles looking to upgrade their current systems, look not farther than the JBL Creature III Self-Powered Multimedia Satellite and Subwoofer package. This light, compact package packs a whopping punch in only two tiny satellite speakers and a sub. With a subwoofer that is only 230mm by 230mm and two satellite speakers that measure 75mm by 75mm this system can fit anywhere, not only on the desktop.
With a dedicated power supply one never has to worry about the audio being too low, and this is the perfect upgrade for a user who only is currently using laptop speakers. The output on these speakers measures 25 watts, far more than the average movie watcher or gamer would need. It is true that other systems deliver more sound but what makes the JBL package truly unique is the small compact package that the 25 watts come in. This speaker and subwoofer combo can fit truly anywhere, and is the perfect option for the student on the go.
When looking at options for computer speakers it is important to look at systems that deliver a powered subwoofer. Many systems deliver the same wattage with a passive subwoofer, but this is just sacrificing sound quality for the wattage. The JBL Creature III Self-Powered Multimedia solves this problem by providing a powered sub along with two powerful satellites that are guaranteed to rock one’s room.
With JBL’s 1 year warranty along with the set one knows they are getting a great deal, and for a price that is under 100 American dollars, this is one system that cannot be beat.
The LaCie iamaKey Thumb-Drive is one of the better thumb-drives that is available. More and more people are choosing to carry flash drives with them at all times, but this means that the drives must be inconspicuous, carry a lot of data, and, most importantly, stand up to abuse.
This thumb-drive is all of that and more. It fits very well on a keyring, as promised, and looks just like a key, albeit a little larger. Unless it was inspected closely, nobody would ever know that it is a flash drive. The drive is remarkably strong, and even waterproof to a degree. It does not flex at all when plugged into the computer, even with the keyring and the weight of the other keys attached. It has excellent transfer speeds. The drive also has remarkably low failure rates after one year: approximately 4%, as compared to the industry standard of around 12%.
There is only one problem with the drive. This is that the serial number is not included on the drive itself. Rather, it is included in the disposable packaging that comes with the drive. The manufacturer has chosen not to honor warranties without a serial number, so this can pose a problem. However, given the strength of the drive it is unlikely that anyone will encounter a situation in which he or she needs to call in a warranty.
Overall this drive is highly recommended. However, a customer should make sure that he or she copies the serial number onto a text file and puts it in multiple locations before throwing away the original packaging.
Amazing. This small pink device connects external hard drives to the internet. So you can view or download personal files from anywhere internet connection available. You just need to plugin and log on, you are able to access and share your files and even stream your media straight form your computer at home to your laptop or even iPhone.
