But luckily, there’s Urban Armor Gear to the rescue. The leading designers of lightweight, rugged and U.S. military drop-tested device cases has announced three new series of MIL-SPEC drop-tested cases specially tailor made for the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note8 smartphone.

An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why

Have you heard? There was a Kickstarter project which involves a smartphone case that makes espresso. Yes. The caffeinated beverage that so many love. Out of a smartphone case.

I mean, come’on, man. A smartphone case that makes hot beverage? Who are they kidding right? Continue reading An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why
