Stun Gun iPhone 4-4S Case by Yellow Jacket Cases
Your personal safety and your family’s is something you should always keep in mind.

Just as the Pepper Spray iPhone Case we featured a while back, the Yellow jacket Stun Gun iPhone case upgrades your ordinary iPhone protection with personal safety features.

The case is made of PC and ABS and features an extended battery designed to be used by the stunt gun, but also charge your iPhone if needed. The stun gun sports sharp electrodes designed to penetrate clothing for maximum effect and it is activated by a two-step safety feature to prevent accidental discharges.

The Yellow Jacket iPhone Case is available for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S (the guys from Yellow Jacket are working hard to cover more smartphone models) in 5 colors (black, white, pink, yellow and red) and will set you back a hefty $139.99. But hey, personal safety has no price and, given you never forget your iPhone at home, always having a stun gun with you should bring some piece of mind in this rough times.

SPOT Global Satellite Phone Coverage Map

While most of us go crazy after powerful smartphones with big screens and power hog processors, the SPOT Global Phone has a different value proposition for it’s customers – affordable satellite phones with almost full Earth coverage (some parts of Africa and Asia are not yet included in their plans – check the above map).

Their phones are not what we usually call “head turners” but hey, there’s a price to pay for being able to use your phone in remote areas with no cell phone coverage. On the other hand, their airtime plans are pretty acceptable starting from a reasonable pricing of $0.25 US per minute.

So now we have smartphones for city usage, low priced satellite phones for usage in remote areas … what’s next? What do you think? Let me know in the comments …

Anti Theft Backpack & Bag Protector by Pacsafe

Being able to protect your gear while on the go it’s something you should constantly be worried about.
While a dedicated anti-theft solution as the Camsafe 100 can bring you some piece of mind if you want to safely transport your DSLR, what happens with bigger messenger bags and backpacks?

PacSafe, the “world’s leading travel security brand”, brings an interesting solution on the table – The PacSafe BackPack and Bag Protector. The bag protector is basically an exomesh cage system that keeps your goods away of thieves. Put your bag inside the metallic mesh, close it, attach it to a secure fixture with the included padlock and you’re ready to go.

While the system is not 100% infallible and someone with the right equipment (read cable cutters) can manage his way to your gear, it is a good solution when traveling for the simple fact that it makes it difficult for thieves to snap your bag and run. Why battle with the protective mesh and risk to be caught when there are so many other “free-to-grab” bags out-there???
