Deal Of The Day: 16% Off On Peel iPhone 6/6S Case

peel-case-1

Apple went so far out of its way to make the newer iPhone thin that it let the back camera stick out a little bit, since it couldn’t cram it in the impossibly slim case, and make it flush. As questionable as this decision was, perhaps you feel that covering your phone in a bulky case kind of defeats the engineers’ “feat”, so a case like the Peel is for you.

The iPhone wasn’t designed to perfection just to be covered by a bulky case. That’s why Peel offers a case that retains the shape and form of your phone, while protecting it from accidental drops.

– Doesn’t add bulk or weight to your phone
– Free of any branding
– Designed to be ultra thin (just 0.35mm thick)
– Perfectly formed to fit your iPhone
– Protects you protruding camera lens w/ a subtle lip

Cases shouldn’t be expensive to start with (you’re paying enough for the phone), but at $24.99 after rebate, we feel the Peel is priced just right. And as usual, shipping is free.

iPhone 6s by Legend: Everything you need to know

The following article is written by Sophie Davidson in collaboration with ‘How to Spend It’? -Ed.

When one thinks of mobile phone communications and Finland, the consumer is naturally inclined to bring the once-great Nokia to mind. Who can forget original icons such as the 3310, the N90 and other pioneering models? If we rewind a decade back then it seemed everyone was either talking or playing Snake on these little gems.

However, Finland has much more in its mobile phone locker than just history, and one team of Helsinki-based artisan jewellers and stone-setters have taken the iPhone 6s and created a work of wonder even more stunning than the raw version, which is launching in a blaze of glory this autumn.

The 128gb phone itself still boasts the apps and capabilities that Apple have somehow pushed into such a small package, but that package now has a wrapper that takes the phone to an exotic and intricate level, described on its website as the ‘world’s most luxurious iPhone 6s.’

Ring lights make subjects’ eyes have that ethereal glow sought after in many cosmetics advertisements. Or many advertisements, period. It’s an easy gimmick to add a little flair to any photograph, and the Kira Clip-On attachment for your phone wants to help you get that effect with your selfies. Created by Japanese photographer Julie Watai, the Kira Ring Light will be powered by AAA batteries, so it won’t drain your phone’s. The light’s intensity will also be adjustable. It currently seems to be at the prototype stage, and we have no word on pricing or availability, though the idea is that it’ll go up for crowdfunding soon.

The Lumenati Cinematic Smartcase Turns Your Phone Into A Videography Powerhouse

Lumenati-CS1-case-for-iPhone-6

Combining the modern convenience of an iPhone 6’s touchscreen, high-density optical sensor, and sharing capabilities with the old-school cachet, ergonomic form factor, and coolness of a retro lo-fi camera, the Lumenati Smartcase could quickly become the hipster’s favourite method of capturing video.

Cinematographers simply pop their device into the Lumenati CS1 just as grandpa would load an 8mm film cartridge. The lightweight, portable unit allows anyone to frame and film a steady, stable shot with the pull of an intuitive trigger. A cold shoe allows filmmakers to attach lights, microphones and extra handles for sport shooting. The real-time viewfinder allows WYSIWYG capabilities even in bright light, a feature that is elusive to modern mobile devices. Lenses can be swapped to shoot in wide angle, fisheye and telephoto.

The Lumenati CS1 uses an optical-quality glass lensing system. Our lenses range from wide angle to telephoto and deliver crisp stunning images. The lenses are designed for high resolution HD cameras and when paired with the CS1 create the perfect look for any occasion. Standard 58mm interchangeable lensing provides even more versatility with available super wide and fish eye lenses.

If it works as advertised, the Lumenati could be a fun way to capture footage. It’s a $200 to get your own, which comes with a wide-angle lens.

New Screen Protector Gives Your iPhone an On-Screen Back Button

halo-back-1

The new iPhone 6’s are bigger, especially the 6 Plus. This is great for watching videos, but not so much for reaching across the screen and pressing the back button that many applications place on the upper left corner. This makes one-handed operation a little harder, so the folks behind the Halo Back Screen protector saw an opportunity. You’re looking at a glass screen protector with an added capacitive touch channel that adds a “Back” button on the bottom left of your screen. Basically every time you press the bottom left area of the screen, your touch signal is relayed to the top left, where the back button normally is located. In this way you can more easily navigate iOS 8, despite the gargantuan proportions of Apple’s flagship handset. And if you want your own, it’ll only cost you $17.
