Cordli iPhone Case Keeps Your Headphone Cord Out of the Way

Cordli

Things can get pretty messy with your earphone cord if you don’t have one of those holders or wire clips to keep them in place while you’re using them. The clips do a decent job of keeping the wires neat, but then there’s the hassle of where to put them when you want to use the entire length of your earphones. I’ve lost my fair share of these clips because they’re often so tiny that you don’t really notice when they slip out of your pocket or purse.

An alternative is the Cordli iPhone case. It has snakelike grooves on the back where you’re supposed to push the wire into. It promises to get rid of the “cord bulge” and allows you to adjust the cord to a length that you’re comfortable with by holding the excess in its grooves.

New iPhones Out? Yawn… At Least Denny’s Had Something Interesting To Say About It

Dennys-ad-iphone-mock

Yeah… so Cupertino released some new iPhones yesterday. Anything exciting? Not by a long shot. The iPhone 5 guts, now in a plastic casing, with multiple colors available, and sporting the “iPhone 5C” moniker. And the iPhone 5S, a faster iPhone 5 with a fingerprint scanner. Oh. So. Exciting. Bigger screen? Nope. NFC? You’re funny. Better battery life? What is this, bizarro-land, where Apple still leads the innovation landscape? Come on… At least Denny’s was quick to come out with a funny ad, partly mocking the new phones. There it is, up there, reminding you that the popular franchise always has pancakes smothered in Gold (like the butter), a dig at the fact that the former-Jesus phone now comes in a champagne hue, in addition to black and white. Maybe it’s not completely mocking, as much as it is riding the wave of media coverage surrounding yesterday’s announcement, but all things being considered, we felt more excitement for Denny’s creativity than Apple’s efforts on the phone front this time around.

iPhone Paperback Notes To Kick It Old School

iphone-paperback-xl

Yeah, there’s a Notes application in your iPhone, but let’s face it: no one uses it. Well, some people do, but there’s no denying that there still exists a strong contingent of people who haven’t lost all love for hand writing. The iPhone Paperback Notes consists of 80 sheets of self-adhesive paper that stick straight to the back of the iPhone 5. Write stuff down, tear that sheet out and stick it somewhere like they used to do in the 90′s. It’s $8.

This iPhone Case Gets Your Gears Turning

Gear iPhone Case

This iPhone case designed by Danny Tasmakis is truly something else. It features a thick frame with a bunch of gears covering the back. The coolest part? The gears are actually movable. They also function as an analog calculator of sorts, as the gears are embossed with the number of teeth on each, so you can work out ratios and the like.

There are even and odd number of teeth gears just to make it that bit more challenging, it’s a great visual to see what direction what gear is going in a gear train. You won’t even have to turn on your phone and it still works. 

You can print the case out yourself if you have access to a 3D printer by downloading the model here. If you don’t, you can also just buy it, although there’s still some minimal assembly required from you to put the case together.

The case is priced at $19.29.

Denture iPhone Case: All Teeth, No Bite

Denture iPhone Case

This isn’t the first time that teeth and dentures took center stage in accessories. We first heard of ConcaveOblivion when they came up with denture-themed fashion accessories, like bangles and combs. They’re back once with more accessories that bite, this time for your phone.

Each case is handmade and features polished dental acrylic veneer. It’s probably not a case for the faint of heart.Continue Reading

Rumor Mill: Budget-Friendly iPhone 5C Might Have Scratch-Resistant Plastic Backs

Low Cost iPhone

As we inch closer to the purported announcement of the budget-friendly iPhone 5C, more information about the yet-to-be-announced unit has surfaced. Apple is really deviating from their usual style, as the cheaper version of their smartphone will reportedly come in a bevy of bright-colored plastic backs. You might recall that the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS both featured plastic polycarbonate housings, and they were pretty much well-received by users worldwide.

A shift back to plastic definitely sounds possible, given that it’s a lower-budget phone, after all. But Apple won’t be going back to the same plastic. According to Apple Daily, the smartphone maker will be using a tougher kind of plastic that is scratch-resistant. They were reportedly able to get their hands on the rear case for the phone and attempted to scratch it with keys to no avail.

Give Your iPhone 5 The, Uh, Throne It Deserves

ireliquary-1

I like my iPhone as much as the next guy, but definitely not as much as Georg Dinkel. This dude spent 6 months building one of the most ornate iPhone docks we’ve come across. I mean, we usually don’t even cover iPhone docks because, well, yawn. But the iReliquary 1.0, as he calls it, is something else. It’s made from rhinestones, gold and silver powder, as well as polymer clay for the main structure. It does work as a 2.1 channel, Bluetooth enabled sound system, and a lightning connector presumably also charges your phone as it sits… in its throne. It’s really all a bit ridiculous but intriguing at the same time. We don’t think it’s for sale, and there’s definitely not another one like it.

Rumor Mill: iPhone 5C Case Turns Up on Amazon

Plastic iPhone 5

For weeks, we’ve been hearing that Apple has a budget iPhone in the works. It makes perfect sense that they’re trying to tap into this market, considering the fact that the regular iPhone is way out of the budget of most people. For years, the Android has been hot in its heels and it looks like the rival OS is gaining more and more ground. There is a wide variety of Android devices available in the market, from high-end luxury phones to affordable but still full-featured smartphones.

Images of Apple’s purported budget iPhone leaked earlier this month. Apple hasn’t confirmed the existence of the device yet, although sources claim that they’ll be launching it this September. Perhaps fueling these rumors even more is the appearance of a case for the “iPhone 5C” on Amazon.Continue Reading
