when we talk about iPhone case, a completely squared-off item (as in a box) is not something you would expect but that’s exactly what the Box Case for iPhone 4S is about, which is kind of refreshing change. instead of going along with the iPhone’s rounded corners, Incase has chosen to the right angle way for its soft, rubberized construction case. these squared corners not only give this case its unique look but being square gives it more material at places where it needed most.

we love gadgets but like all geeks, we have only one gripe in general: the batteries don’t usually last long enough for us to fully utilize our gadgets’ features. yes, we do have portable batteries or chargers to give our gadgets a dose of juice when our they are low in juice but these batteries are still based on lithium-ion battery, who’s technology is pretty much stagnant. of course, makers can keep upping the capacity (thus increasing its physical size) for more charges but that would defeat the whole idea of portability. that’s where a pocket-sized fuel cell would come in handy.

we are no stranger to ebike but still, we are fascinated new examples as they are being announced. especially, so if the bike in question look no other like today’s bicycles (ebike or not) and can perform stunts. well, at least that’s what Audi is saying about its e-bike Wörthersee Prototype. its 1.6 kg (3.53 lbs) carbon fiber frame house a lithium-ion battery pack that provides its 2.4 kW electric motor with juice. it has a maximum 250 Nm of torque spinning down its rear wheel and has a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph) with pedal-assist (‘Pedelec‘ mode) or 50 km/h (31 mph) if you prefer the bike to do all the legwork for you (the ‘eGrip‘ program).

21st century geeks face a new set of problem – a problem that is more frightening than the rumored apocalypse and that problem is the lack of USB ports for all the gadgets. it is an awful thing, really. imagine having to get up from your cosy $700 chair and do that unthinkable stretch to the rear of the computer to remove a couple of USB devices so that the rest (or at least, a few) could go in. first, it is an exercise of epic proportion and second, other devices still need to be attached to your comp.

ladies, if you love your MacBook Air so dearly, then you probably would want your life to revolve around it. you probably would dine with it, date a dude over FaceTime with it instead of meeting up in person, take a stroll in the park with it and bathe with it. nah. don’t do the latter that cos’ it is not waterproof, let alone water resistant. anyway, there’s one more thing you could do with MacBook Air: staring into it while you power up yourself up for a night’s out or checking out on the growth status of that nasty pimple. sounds impossible? not if you have the MacBook Air Compact Mirror.

most folks are quite happy with the standard issue Apple 30-pin connector cable when charging and syncing their iPhones. it is pretty hassle free, really and we should have no complain about it, except for when you are alerted of an incoming message. the ritual for this includes picking up your iPhone from the desk, unlock it and navigate to your message app. doesn’t sounds like a huge chore but apparently, some found it to be nuisance (we, included), especially the picking up part of things. well, if you belong to the latter category, then Une Bobine Cable is a must have accessory for your iPhone.
