Choosing a good travel case is never an easy job! My past experience with buying travel suitcases is not the most enjoyable to remember! I always had to make trade-offs! If it was cool enough, it was too small or too big; if it was the perfect size, it was too expensive or not high quality; if it was the right price and the right size … it scored low on the coolness factor or it was not strong enough … and so on!
The MyFly Bag seems to be a good choice which decently answers all above issues. The suitcase comes in two versions (20″ carry-on and 24″ large format), it’s made of lightweight durable Polycarbonate front shell with ABS back shell for maximum strength and security, it sports an internal alloy telescopic handle as well as two external handles (top and side), 360 degrees spinner wheels and a multi-pocket interior lining with elastic straps to secure your stuff. The coolest feature of the MyFly suitcase is that it’s completely customizable: you can choose a custom background including full colored or patterned designs as well as add your own images to the front outer shell, which helps it score very high in coolness!
Let’s hear you in the comments … What’s your favorite design? What would you print on your suitcase?
When Amazon first released it’s Kindle Fire tablet back in 2011 it shook the world of digital gadgetry by it’s quality, low price and wide range of features and apps included. 3 years later, the Original Kindle Fire scores a whopping 4 stars (out of five possible) based on over 22,000 Amazon reviews.
Why am I telling you all these? Because Amazon is getting ready to release their first smartphone to the markets – The Amazon Fire. The Fire is set to release next month (July 25th, 2014) and comes with a 4.7″ screen (1280 x 720 resolution with 315ppi), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz processor, Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, 4G, Bluetooth, NFC and runs on Fire OS 3.5.0 which is an Android based operating system.
On the media side, the Amazon Fire sports a 13MP back camera with optical image stabilization, 1080p movie recording, dedicated camera button for snapping pictures in less than a second, intelligent HDR (High Dynamic Range) which merges multiple exposures into a detailed, vibrant image even in low light conditions and automatic media backup into Amazon’s Cloud Drive (free unlimited cloud storage included in price). The audio sports Dolby Digital Plus designed to auto-adjust volume and automatically optimize the audio profile based on what the user is doing, watching or listening.
On the software side, the Fire comes with 3D Dynamic Perspective (“a custom-designed sensor system that responds to how you hold, view, and move your phone“) which adjusts any 3D image on the screen to match the user’s head position. A dedicated FireFly button was added to the phone and allows easy information scanning followed by pre-defined actions. Simply scan a phone number and call it, scan a web address and open the website, scan a business card and save the info to contacts. FireFly also recognizes songs, TV shows, QR codes, magazines, movies and books allowing you to get instant information on over 70 million products.
The Amazon Fire will be available starting at $199 US with AT&T contracts or at $649 US without contract.
Let’s hear you in the comments. How do you feel about the Amazon Fire? Do you think it will be as successful as its older brother, the kindle Fire series?
He was always able to pull a quick one and get rid of the army of bad people following him around in seconds! Part of his cool escapes was his brilliant mind (read the director’s brilliant mind) and part of it were various cool gadgets he had on him.
I bet if MacGyver was still around, the Kool Tool would be one of his main clothing accessories!
The Kool Tool Belt from Bison Designs is made to help you in various unpredicted situations life throws at you. The multitool stays quiet, hidden as a belt buckle waiting for you to request it’s assistance. The multitool buckle is made of strong steel and features three screwdrivers (Philips, large and small), three sizes wire stripper, a bottle opener, SAE and metric hex tools and a ruler (metric and standard). The actual belt is a black 44 mm ribbed webbing belt which goes well with jeans, dock or any other sports/casual pants.
The collection includes minimalist landscapes from 23 cities including Las Vegas, LA, Seattle, New York City and many more and is available in two poster formats: 12″ (30.5cm) x 18″ (45.7cm) and 18″ (45.7cm) x 24″ (61cm).
Smartphone and tablet accessories became more and more important over the past few years. While their main task is still to protect your bellowed gadget from bumps, scratches and the elements, these accessories are also designed to help you make a fashion statement as well as to add additional features to your gadget (think about tablet cases with incorporated keyboards like the ClamCase Bluetooth Keyboard Case or about cases that double as desk stands like the Case Logic SureFit Universal Folio Stand Case we featured earlier)
The Evouni Arc iPad Cover is one of such protective pouches made not only to protect your iPad and double as an iPad stand but also to look fancy and make your friends ask you where can they get one! A real head turner!
The Evouni Arc is made of one piece of Italian calfskin which can be folded in a variety of ways and used as protective cover of as desk stand. The cover also features a silver metallic buckle to hold it closed when in cover mode and comes in three color variations: Black, Blue and Claret.
