Cases and skins with a hint of creativity

As is the case with any trade show, there were a plethora of cases and skins for the iPhone available. Personally the case I have from Casecrown works great for me and I’ve never felt the need to put a skin on anything, but some of the offerings this year from Uncommon caught my eye…

It’s a strong, professional sounding microphone that is a great addition for a mobile recording setup. The microphone features a 1/8″ line-in jack to plug in a different…

Macworld: WE AREN’T OPEN YET!

It’s another quiet day today at Macworld as I type this on a wide-open Moscone Center floor. Well, on a couch, not the floor. But it’s still empty. That is of course because No. 1 I’m in the conference hall where only conference training is going on and No. 2, the actual expo hasn’t started…

Yes, I’m going to Macworld

In case you forgot or missed it when I mentioned it earlier, yes I am going to Macworld next week and you can come vicariously with me. I’m hoping to highlight the best the floor has to offer when the expo starts on Thursday with a possible close encounter with an iPad on Saturday. If…
