mophie announces the juice pack helium for iPhone 5

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.

Logitech announces Ultrathin Keyboard for the iPad Mini

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.

Taking the Vader-black iPhone to full-on Blackout!

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.

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.

Oopsmark USB Wrist Cuffs at Macworld|iWorld 2013

Jesse Herbert of oopsmark was making leather wine carriers you could sling from a bicycle when an idea struck him -- he could use the leftover bits of leather to make accessories. But not just any accessories -- smart accessories. Somewhere between steampunk and cyberpunk, came a set of wrist bands with USB keys stowed on them.

At Macworld|iWorld 2013 Jesse showed us his work and told us his story.

Dome skin for iPhone review

I love Domeskins. They're like skins but are thicker, giving them an almost 3D look and feel. I have been using them for a week and, at first, I put them on because of the beautiful look and matching wallpaper. Almost immediately after that, I came to appreciate Domeskins for the wonderful feel and extra grip they provide for my iPhone. With Domeskins, when I place my iphone on a surface, it will stay in place and I don't have to worry as much about it sliding to its doom, or being nudged into oblivion. It just stays.
