Nintendo 3DS to have stronger anti piracy protection

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2010

Ahoy pirates, listen up. Nintendo will be increasing the piracy protection on their latest DS handheld, the Nintendo 3DS over the previous model of the Nintendo DS. According to THQ VP Ian Current, the DS market and especially the DS Lite had been affected by piracy, so they are hoping that the new security will put a stop this.

I’m sure it will slow pirating down, but sooner or later someone will get around it.

Wrapsol Ultra film protects from scratches and drops

Posted in Mobile Accessories by Shane McGlaun on March 19th, 2010

I have used protective films for my iPhone for a long time. I like the invisibleSHIELD line of films because it works well and lasts a long time. A new film called Wrapsol Ultra has debuted that might be better than the invisibleSHIELD stuff I normally like.

The new Wrapsol Ultra film promises to not only protect from scratches on the screen and back of your iPhone, the film also claims to protect from drops. Wrapsol claims the film is strong enough to protect the device from a drop of up to 6-feet.

Undercover Laptop Sleeve

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2009

Undercover Laptop SleeveThe Undercover Laptop Sleeve is a padded laptop sleeve that helps protect your laptop from damage, while it also protects it from theft. The padded sleeve will prevent your laptop computer from getting banged up and scratched, but what’s awesome is that the outside of the sleeve is made to look like an old used padded envelope.

So people will think you have useless paperwork or something else inside. Thieves will pass it by, never knowing that they missed out on a laptop. You can even write on the envelope to make it more realistic.

Posted in Security by Conner Flynn on April 27th, 2009

Axxana Phoenix: Bomb proof data protectionThe Axxana Phoenix is a solid state flash memory disk array that backs up and stores your important data with no need of remote transfer. It claims to be the toughest data recorder in the world. It can withstand earthquake grade shocks of up to 40G and 5000 pounds of pressure.

It can stand up to extreme temperatures as well. It can survive 2000 degrees F for one hour followed by 450 F for another 6 hours. How about the ability to withstand 30 feet of water pressure and a piercing from a 500 pound rod dropped from 10 feet. Now that’s tough.

Tire Tread iPhone 3G caseHere’s an iPhone case that’s a bit different. If you’re in the market for a case for your iPhone 3G, but you “tire” from the search, this may be for you. The Case-Mate Vroom Tire Tread Pattern Case features 100% impact resistant rubber and it’s only $15.

Its rubber case can protect your expensive phone by cushioning the blow of impact of course. But there’s an unseen danger most users ignore. What if…Just what if it slipped from your gadget loving hand? The tire tread pattern will prevent iPhone hand slippage and at the same time send others a message. Presumably, “Don’t tread on me.”

iPhone 3G Incase Power Slider doubles the battery, lets you syncIncase is at it again. Their latest iPhone offering, The Power Slider, will double your iPhone’s power for up to 5 hours of talk time on the 3G network and 10 hours on 2G. It will increase your audio playback time to 26 hours, and give you video playback time to 7 hours.

Pretty nifty. But that isn’t all. With this device, you can now sync with the iPhone still in the case, which is pretty convenient. Amazingly it doesn’t make your iPhone look too bad, though it does fatten it some. We’ve seen much worse. No word on price yet, but it should be available on November 28.

iWood case: How Ewoks protect iPhones

iWood case: How Ewoks protect iPhones
There are tons of ways to protect your iPhone. But hippies and Ewoks are going to want something different. That something is wood. Why not go all natural with your iPhone 3G? Miniot’s form-fitting iWood cases are all natural hardwoods like oak, cherry, mahogany, walnut and something called padouk.

One downside to adding natural beauty to your iPhone is the price tag. At $125 each, they’ll cost almost as much as the iPhone 3G itself. If the price is a bit steep for ya, you can always try your hand at whittling your own, but I shudder to think what the end product will look like.

Zagg invisibleSHIELD for iPhone 3G

Zagg invisibleSHIELD for iPhone 3GBack when the original iPhone launched I was upset that a few short weeks after I got my phone it had scratches all over it. To keep this from getting any worse I got my hands on a product from Zagg called invisibleSHIELD. The stuff is made from a super strong and invisible film the military uses to protect the blades of helicopters from scratches and nicks.

Zagg cuts the stuff to the exact fit for the iPhone and has for the last three weeks been offering pre-order kits that protect the screen and body of the iPhone 3G. Zagg says that so far it has had 50,000 orders for the iPhone 3G kit.

Flash Padlock USB key secures data with a pin
There are tons of USB keys that have encryption software so you can keep your files safe from others, but if you’re paranoid enough, or if you are a super secret spy carrying around sensitive info, you might think that software encryption isn’t enough. So here’s the ultimate in USB key protection. The Flash Padlock, which has hardware encryption. In order to unlock it, you have to enter a pin number.

Perfect for that Top Secret “Eyes only” info that you carry from one spy gig to another. You can get it in 2GB and 4GB capacities, and it allows you to create 1 pin number or multiple pins and then register them on-line for easy retrieval in case your memory fails you.

Factron Quattro Aluminum Case for iPod Nano
For those of you looking for the perfect case to protect your new iPod Nano in style, this one stands out from the crowd. No artwork or obscenely bright colors here, but the new shape is really appealing.

These Factron Quattro Aluminum Jackets are from Mizumori Ado and it they look sturdy. In fact the looks are so nice in an industrial sort of way, I almost want to drop the device on purpose just to see what happens. Unfortunately, these will be sold only in Japan and in extremely limited quantities.

Sony Ericsson W700
Stun guns that look like phones are nothing new, but they usually look pretty crappy. That’s not the case with this Sony Ericsson W700. It looks normal, but has a stun button that delivers a 900,000-volt electric shock via two small metal prongs.

British Police recently confiscated this W700 phone and it’s the first time we are hearing about a Sony Ericsson W700 stun gun. The price seems to be between $50 and $100. Interestingly, UK police use 50,000V stun guns. The police were shocked to find it.
The 21-year-old man was charged with aggravated burglary of a business and possessing an offensive weapon.

Hand-carved wooden iPod cases
These wood iPod Touch cases are real beauties. They come from mjdinsmore on Etsy. Handcrafted from cedar and mahogany, they have some nice detail and look like they are quality. They will cost you from $31 to $80 and come in a variety of styles. The one pictured above is carved out of a single piece of sustainable-grown mahogany. That’s alot cooler then using plastic.

Plus, you’ll get that natural, warm feel of wood in your hands. It will keep your iPod Touch well protected with style. You’ll be alright, even if you spill something. No wood jokes. I did it!
