If you picked up a BlackBerry Z10 recently you might be on the lookout for accessories. We’re on the lookout for you! So far, we’ve got good news. Acase, which is known for their stylish and durable cases has announced that they have cases for the BlackBerry Z10.
It’s good to see case manufacturers support the BlackBerry with their comeback into the smartphone world. Acase has had a lot of success with their SuperLeggera PRO cases for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy series. They are now bringing it to the BlackBerry Z10!
“Due to the worldwide demand for SuperLeggera PRO cases for iPhone and Samsung S series, we’ve decided to extend our line to include the newest members of the smartphone market the Galaxy S4 and Blackberry Z10,” said Jasper Shih, marketing manager for Acase. “The SuperLeggera line not only offers superior design and protection, but also comes at a reasonable price.”
Acase specializes in high quality accessories that maximize the functionality of iPads, KIndle, iPhones, and more. Based on the A+ principle, represented by the star on the logo, Acase aims at providing excellent style through a dedicated design team, outstanding quality while remaining affordable, and first class customer service.
If you own the BlackBerry Z10, you realize how thin it is. The SuperLeggera PRO case has a solid polycarbonate exterior shell to protect from scratches and dents. The tough silicone coating protects the ports from dust. The Acase is affordable at $19.99 on Amazon.com.
Have you seen any cases for the BlackBerry Z10?
Long gone are the simple days where students carried composition notebooks and pencils to class. There was a time in the past where students had to carry paper into classrooms. And pens. And they used these pens to write on this paper. Often, this was done in a composition book. If you don’t miss the paper but do miss simplistic design of old, LifeWorks has you covered with the iHome Classic Composition Notebook for the iPads 2, 3, 4 and mini.
I had the chance to speak with Johnathan Freeman, Director of Product Quality and Design for LifeWorks about getting back to the simplicities of life in a technology-infused world. iHome designs take a unique approach to technology with designs that make you feel all melancholy inside
In addition to providing “superior protection” for your iPad, the Composition Case will feature dual position display functionality, making it ideal for reading, playing games, watching movies, etc. It’s available online in four colors—black, red, green and blue—at a suggested retail price of $39.99 for full size, and $29.99 for iPad mini.
What do you think of the retro protection for your iPad? Are you ready to go old school with an iHome Composition case of your own?
What is this exactly? It’s a new iPhone accessory that will be coming next year courtesy of will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.
The camera case above adds a new sensor, lens, and flash to the iPhone’s camera, increasing the phone’s sensor from 8 MP to 14 MP. The brand, called foto.sosho, will feature two styles – contemporary (black) and vintage (white with gold trim) – and will initially only be available for the iPhone 4 and 4S. iPhone 5 cases are in the works, and are slated to arrive sometime next year. In addition to improving the camera, the foto.sosho iPhone docks also set the iPhone up with a slide-out keyboard, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Those who buy in will also get an i.am account, which is will.i.am’s version of Instagram, providing photo editing options and a social network. How, exactly, i.am differs from Instagram in any other way but name remains to be seen.
The iPhone 4/4S cases scheduled to go on sale on December 6 with a steep asking price – the C.4 will sell for £199, or about $319, while the V.4, incredibly, will have a £100 premium attached, putting its price at £299 ($479) despite apparently having the same hardware.
What’s under Apple’s tree this season? Could it be the gift of savings? Apple hasn’t announced any deals for Black Friday (yet), but in this season of giving, we can only assume that Apple plans to offer huge savings for Black Friday. If 2011 is any indication as to 2012 savings, we’re in for a treat and it’s safe to write our list for what we want. Last year Apple offered respectable discounted items for the one-day shopping event including iPad savings and savings on the iPod Nano, iPod Touch, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac devices.
We’re checking our list twice and on our list this season, we’re asking the big red man (ahem, Apple) for:
iPad specials: In 2011, the iPad 2 was only a few months old when Black Friday rolled around, and customers enjoyed about a $50 savings. We expect the same level of savings for iPad 3 and older model iPads this year. If you haven’t bought an iPad yet because of the hefty price tag, we suggest waiting until Apple officially announces its specials. Because they will…at least we hope. Apple reduced prices on Mac last year so we predict savings on Mac products as well.
Discounts on Accessories: We expect Apple to reduce prices on accessories. Some stores offer free Apple accessories with your purchase of an iPad so be on the lookout for these savings. There’s nothing better than getting something free especially when it’s from Apple.
Shorter Lines and Less in-store Crowds: Wildly popular is Black Friday so expect to see a lot of consumers. We hope that Apple is well stocked and equipped to handle the influx of customers. How about express lines and customer service oriented sales people to direct the traffic? We don’t want our turkey & stuffing to get cold.
Participating Stores: While Apple is the go-to spot for all things Apple, other retailers like Best Buy will have possible savings on Apple products. Best Buy has its own surge of customers on Black Friday, but it’s a healthy alternative to buying your iPad directly from an Apple store. You can even buy your Apple product online and skip the long lines and overcrowding. However, in store sales seem to be the most lucrative and cost-effective.
You may be wondering about iPhones. Last year there were no iPhone savings, but you never know. These are just our predictions. Apple may have some surprises up its sleeves.
Tell us about your Black Friday experience. Do you plan on going this year? What tech pieces are you looking to get your hands on?

As a burgeoning travel diva, I’ve learned the hard way that excessive baggage and baggage fees is not the way to go. But when traveling with office accessories, laptops, ipads, cameras, batteries and more – it’s kinda hard avoiding “Bag Lady” status and to (in my Erykah Badu voice) “pack light”. Luckily, I found some incredible gadgetries online that I would love to have in my carry on for my next big trip. I liked them so much, that I thought I’d share some of them with you below…

Get slick and productive with this virtual keyboard keychain, sold exclusively by Brookstone. This tiny and compact keychain is about the size of a pack of cigarettes.

Using every trick in the book to milk your laptop’s charge for the duration of a flight? Forget that. Apple’s MagSafe Airline Adapter plugs into the airplane’s seat power port, keeping your MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air juiced for as many movie viewings as you like. (Note: This adapter keeps your laptop powered up but doesn’t charge the battery, so you’ll have to snag an outlet in the terminal if you need to fill up before the flight.)
Grid-It iPad ($34). Get organized with the Grid-It organization system’s new and improved iPad case. A neoprene pocket protects your tablet, while the gridded straps across the front of the case lets you configure your gadgets and accessories in countless ways. You’ll spend less time organizing and more time enjoying.

Make sure the frames cover your eyebrows.
When choosing a pair of sunglasses, a good rule of thumb is that your eyes should be positioned in the middle of the lens (vertically and horizontally)
