The road to recovery for Japan is long and they can’t do it alone. With the tsunami, earthquake and nuclear disasters behind us, it’s time to do all that we can to move forward in a positive light and Incase looking to do just that.
Royal RepubliQ urges us to ditch the phone cases and opt for a phone pocket instead. Their version’s pretty legit as it comes in a cognac finish leather shell that’s been really broken in and also features a leather neck strap. The Copenhagen brand’s known for their leather product and we think this is a great item to pick up if you want to see what they’re all about at a pretty affordable cost.
I’m always looking for creative ways to carry my iPhone and this leather case is as good as it gets. It’s made in a rugged calf leather and padded on the inside for protection. No iPhone? Well, it’s good for other things as well like loose change or your wallet and keys.

If you’re not down with the dozens of iPhone cases out on the market right now, check out the iPhone pocket from Sandqvist. It’s meant to be tossed over your neck and looks strikingly like those iconic Leica cases, no? No? Oh. Well, either way, it looks cool and the thick, brown leather helps make this case stand out. Though it’s marketed for iPhone users, it can fit any mobile phone up to 120 x 63 x 14 mm.

Earlier today, Steve Jobs took the covers off what many fanboys may have already seen. The iPhone 4 is the thinnest iPhone we’ve ever seen and Steve compared the overall aesthetics to a beautiful old Leica camera. The shell’s fitted with a glass front and back and the stainless steel band that goes around the phone doubles as an antenna system. Plus, there are two cameras, one with an LED flash and a 5 megapixel sensor, both enabled for video conferencing via the FaceTime app.
Under the hood is where the real funs begins, with Apple‘s A4 chip securely fastened alongside a bigger battery which gives for 7 hours of 3G talk, 6 hours of 3G browsing, 10 hours of WiFi browsing, 10 hours of video, and 40 hours of music. The WiFi is 802.11n now and the display’s extremely crispy with a 960 x 640 resolution that should be perfect for viewing that HD video you record at 720p / 30fps.
The iPhone 4 will be available in white or black, retailing at $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for 32GB. They go on sale June 24th, and AT&T will be giving some extra grace upgrade timing — up to six months early. Look for preorders to begin next week.
Comprised of an accessory and free app, the L5 Remote transforms the iPhone and iPod touch, and now even the iPad, into a personal universal remote that controls televisions, DVD players, DVRs, cable boxes, audio equipment, and most other products that come with an infrared remote. Setting up the device to mimic your other remotes is pretty seamless and you can actually manage which “buttons” show up via a simple drag-and-drop technique.
Many of us have dreamt of turning Apple’s greatest creation into a powerful touchscreen entertainment management system, and this may prove to be the first step in the right direction.

We’re not big on speculation but when it comes to the iPhone, we’re all ears. Seriously. So some crazy events have taken place in the past few weeks, all of which have begun to surface. An Apple engineer left a 4th generation iPhone prototype at a bar, which was picked up by some guy that gave Gawker media (owners of Gizmodo) the opportunity to give it an examination, for monetary fee of course. If this really is the next gen iPhone, then I’m sold. It’s bringing a new front-facing camera as well as a beefed-up back camera and a larger battery. The screen’s a bit smaller but the resolution’s been hiked up.
For anyone that missed today’s major unveiling of the Apple iPhone’s 4.0 OS, we’ve got a quick breakdown. Some key enhancements to look forward to include the highly anticipated multitasking feature. The masses have been asking for it and now Steven Jobs and Co. will deliver. You’ll be able to run multiple apps at the same time, like using Skype to make a call and getting directions from TomTom’s GPS navigation app. You can run other apps like Pandora and check your email, without having to worry about the song going on pause. This feature will only be limited to the iPhone 3GS, while the 3G and Edge versions will be left out in the cold. Sucks for those guys. (more…)
