Came across this awesome multi-purpose swiss knife iPhone case on Indiegogo, the ReadyCase.  The case itself comes with either a 8GB or 16GB USB drive, kickstand, lens ring, headphone clip and a multi-tool (blade, opener, screwdriver)….hmm… am I missing anything here? and the best part is the case is less than 3mm thick.  Check it out on Indiegogo, only 9 days left to pledge if you want one. Even better is there’s a iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 version. The ReadyCase Indiegogo Page here.

Enough Rants About the iPhone 5, It’s Just Another Apple Product

You probably heard enough rants about the new iPhone 5, when even Apple has to openly apologize for some of their hiccups but if you take a minute and rethink why you keep coming back getting a new Mac, a new iPhone or what not, then you realize that maybe, just maybe, you are asking too much.

When people buy a new iMac or Macbook replacement, it is not only because of new innovations that been added to the product line (don’t count retina display), people do so because it is time to upgrade because they need a faster machine, bigger screen size, or lighter mobile device. People buy Apple products because they are die hard fans who would not be swayed to go back to the PC.

Same with the iPhone. People just expect too much when it comes with the new release. Ok, you want bigger screens, Apple gave you that, faster processor, that’s included too, longer battery life, not that one as it is a trade off with a more slimmer design and faster processor. Along just like any other Apple products, Apple throws in a few bad apples (just like Brian Tong puts it on CNET’s Apple Byte, subscribe to it for all the good and bad news inside the Apple world). The Map application definitely on all front pages and the cheap aluminum housing, the lighting cables that makes all your iPhone/iPad obsolete (soon) and the new screen aspect ratio where not even 5% of the app developers are ready for leaving you with all the void with the extended screen estate.

But for all die hard fans out there, we all know that Apple will eventually come up with all the tweaks they need to get it right. The key is, don’t compare the iPhone with their Android or upcoming Windows phone counterparts, Apple is Apple, and you are still biting into it.

First Look Video At Possible New iPhone Earbuds

These rumored new Apple iPhone Earbuds were all over the internet the past day or so, check it out.  I for one still prefer an in-ear design but this is still a major step forward for the guys at Apple considering how many years they have stood by the old design.
