Happy Valentine's Day! Today's a day not only for love and romance, but for the crass commercialization of love and romance, and the modern world, that means sales, deals, special offers, and all manner of other enticements to not only get you to spend them day with the person that matters most to you, but spend your money on them. With that in mind, here are some of the best sales we've found so far:
February is Fitness Month here at Mobile Nations, and thanks to our Android, BlackBerry, iOS, webOS, and Windows phones and tablets, we have a host of new options for getting in shape and staying healthy.
Regardless of your platform of choice, or whether you stick to one type of device or many, there are a ton of great options to choose from now. Georgia is spearheading Fitness Month for us this year, and she's going to show you just 10 of her favorites, and she's going to do it in just 2 minutes.
Wally has arrived on Kickstarter and it claims to be a wallet for the iPhone but redesigned. We have all seen loads of cases that also include a wallet but what if you don’t want a case and just want something simple to hold your bank card? Well this is where the Wally looks to help you out. It is designed to cling to the back of your iPhone and can contain up to three bank type cards securely.
Every week, the editors and writers at iMore carefully select some of our favorite, most useful, most extraordinary apps, accessories, gadgets, and websites. This week's selections include a few games, an Apple service that is easy to take for granted, an awesome iPhone dock, and a fitness app.
To see what we picked, follow along after the break!
Unlike CES 2013, when you hit the show floor at Macworld|iWorld 2013, you didn't feel like iPhone and iPad cases were flying at you like the armory scene in the Matrix. The sanity was refreshing. It allowed us to better see and appreciate what was there, including gems like the Moshi Versacover, originally for the big boy iPad, and now newly remodeled for the iPad mini.
Adonit was one of the first to launch a pressure sensitive Bluetooth stylus for the iPad back in July of last year. That original Jot Touch had quite a lot to like about it, including Adonit's trademark mechanical pencil-style construction and clear capacitive disk, but the new one takes it to the next level. Raphael Gomez of Adonit gave us the story at Macworld|iWorld 2013
For those whose iPhone batteries lived -- or died -- on the extra power provided by a mophie juice pack case, good news -- mophie has just announced the juice pack helium. Why helium? Because it's lighter than air, as in the previous generation juice pack air, of course. It's a 1500mAh battery, which will replenish an iPhone 5 up to 80%, but it's packed in a case that's svelter than ever before.
Meet the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, the little brother to the same keyboard/case combo we've enjoyed on the full-size iPad.
The Ultrathin Keyboard uses the same magnetic setup as a Smart Cover when serving as a case, providing a pretty significant shell over the iPad's display. Flip it over and slide the iPad into the groove and it becomes a Bluetooth keyboard. Obviously this one will be smaller than the full-size version, so we'll just have to see how much the difference cramps our style (and our typing). Logitech expects the Ultrathin Keyboard Mini to be available in the U.S. and Europe sometime this month. It'll retail for $79.99.
When Apple first showed off the new, unibody slate and black iPhone 5, I referred to it as Vader black. I liked the look so much, I escalated it by going retro-black with my Lock screen and Home screen wallpapers. Then, when AnoStyle was announced, I immediately wanted to take it one step further. I wanted the Blackout look you see on high-end watches and cars. Problem was, AnoStyle didn't offer black anodization. Not yet, at least...
So I bugged Ally and her Ano-Ninja accomplice, Rob, and volunteered to be test subject zero for their first-ever Blackout iPhone 5. And as you can see from the results above and below, they did not fail to delight.
Blue makes legendary mics. That's according to Hillary Money, who spoke to us at Macworld|iWorld 2013. Their Yeti are frequently used by podcasters amateur and professional alike, and due to both those markets, Blue is amping things up yet again with the Nessie. Take everything you like about the Yeti, give is a sexy, serpentine new body, and add a ton of automagic-ness, and that's what you get.
