Harry Potter iPhone Case is Simply Magical

Harry Potter iPhone Case

 

It’s been years since J.K. Rowling penned the final chapters of the Harry Potter series, but it’s still enchanting Muggles young and old today. The character is very much alive in pop culture, which was definitely propelled by the highly-successful movie franchise based on the books too. If you’ve still got Potter fever and are looking for an iPhone case, then try this one on for size.

This handmade case is available from TheSorcerersPhone on Etsy for $25.99+ and it’s awesome. It features Harry’s signature black spectacles, his lightning-shaped scar, and of course, his Gryffindor scarf. It’s available for a range of devices, from iPhones to Android devices. Accio case!

OMG #Bendgate: Bent iPhone 6 Plus Devices Will Be Replaced Under Warranty

iphone6-bend-test

Set aside world hunger, rampant terrorism, an increasingly ambitious Russia… forget all that stuff: the new iPhone 6 Plus has a tendency to bend in people’s pockets! But fret not, if your skinny jeans have given Cupertino’s new mini iPad mini an unintended curve, word is that it can be replaced under warranty.

Folks at TheNextWeb asked about the issue via Apple support chat were the representative said it is “100 percent up to the Genius you speak at the store.” The Genius will first conduct a test which is called the Visual Mechanical Inspection and if it passes that the unit will be replaced under warranty, provided that all of the guidelines are met. If not then customers will have to pay for a replacement.

It sounds like Apple is still deciding how to handle the issue, and it’s a little disconcerting to know that the fate of your super expensive giant phone is completely in the hands of a potentially pretentious Apple Genius. And we’re not sure what those guidelines are, but we suppose they involve there not being an obvious ding that would indicate the phone was dropped, rather than gently bent while in the comfort of your hipster pants.

The Selfie Brush Is The Pinnacle Of All That’s Wrong With Humanity

selfiebrush

Well, that’s a bit of a hyperbole right there we suppose, especially in light of a rampant ISIS and growing tensions in Eastern Europe… But to find out about the existence of a hairbrush/iPhone case hybrid does sort of highlight where our priorities seem to lie, here in the first world. You can apparently now safely ignore what’s going on in our planet while de-tousling your hair using a brush that also holds your iPhone. Yes, the Selfie Brush even has an integrated mirror, so you can do some final touchups before you go ahead and snap that pic, because well, the front-facing cam on the phone apparently isn’t good enough. Right?

Whether or not this $20 accessory sells is not even the point, now. Someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea to invest some time and money making this, and that alone speaks volumes.

Deal Of The Day: 38% On iZZi Slim, The 4 Lens-In-One Ultimate Photo Kit

redesign_izzi_mf

The slow death of the point-and-shoot in favour of the convenience of the cellphone camera means that a vibrant ecosystem of accessories always seems welcoming to yet another entrant. You’ve seen the detachable iPhone lenses that allow you to take macro, fisheye, macro and wide-angle shots, but you’ve likely not often seen them done in the way that iZZi Slim does it. This iPhone 5/5S case features a rotating wheel with lenses attached, which means you can quickly switch from one lens to another. This is convenient, because you don’t have to fish around your accessory bag while the shot you want to take vanishes. The lenses are a Fisheye lens, a 2x Telephoto Lens, a Macro Lens, and a Wide-Angle Lens. Normally costing $155, it’s $95 today.

Equalizer Phone Case Grooves to the Beat of Your World

Equalizer Phone Case

What’s better than a case that sufficiently protects your phone from cracks when you accidentally drop it? Why, an interactive one like the Equalizer Case, that’s what! It’s made from tough polycarbonate plastic to provide an added barrier between your phone and whatever hard surface you might bump or drop your phone on. What sets it apart from other cases is the glowing display on its back that looks like a graphic equalizer.

The coolest part? It reacts to ambient sound or music, so the levels go up or down, depending on the current sounds around it–like, say, the sound of your voice when you’re taking a call or the tunes when someone’s playing music. It uses its own battery, so you don’t have to worry about it draining your phone’s power, and has an on/off switch in case you need to tone things down.

The Equalizer Case is available from ThinkGeek for $14.99.

No Thanks: Giant Isopod iPhone Case

arthropod-iphone-case-1

Is it an isopod? An arthropod? We’re no taxonomists and we really have no idea at the kind of life form we’re looking at. But we do know that it’s one of the strangest iPhone cases we’ve come across, and it’s definitely one you should be getting if you’re into being stared at in public transport. You’ll have to pay $80 for the silver version, and $120 for the gold one. They’re only making 500 of these, so any buyer can feel that they have something really special. As if sticking a giant… animal of some kind wasn’t special enough.

It seems to be Japan only at the moment.
