Seidio Innocell Plus Combo makes your hip “hip” once again

SeidioInnocell Front Side BackEDMONTON, AB, Aug 8, 2014/ Troy Media/ – The bigger smartphones get, the less likely we are to see people opting to wear them on their hips. And the need of the latest and greatest for even more power and bigger and extra batteries is another reason to simply sock them into your pocket or purse.

But sometimes (think if you’re working out in the field or up on a telephone pole), a phone on your hip still makes perfect sense.

The Seidio Innocell Plus Combo is a nifty little accessory for your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S that acts as a case with a battery plus holster in an all-in-one combination.

The case is a snap-together sleek slim protector for your phone. It features Seidio’s signature soft-touch coating, that feels nice to handle while keeping your phone free from scratches, and doesn’t add too much excessive real estate to your phone. It has a built-in 2000mAh battery which, in effect, doubles your iPhone’s battery’s capacity, with an extra 25 per cent more to boot.

Your Innocell Plus case clips right into the perfectly matched felt-lined Innocell Plus Holster, which you then simply need to clip it right onto your belt. It allows quick access to your phone and swivels in seven different directions to accommodate almost any type of hip. The belt clip also has a lip on it to make it less likely that the phone will fall off your belt.  READ FULL ARTICLE at TROY MEDIA

G4TV.ca Review: Hang tight with MonkeyOh, MonkeyDo

MonkeyOh, MonkeyDo

There are tons of gadgets on the market that are either cute or useful, but together they often come up short in one category or another. Enter MonkeyOh,by Felix. It comes up as top banana; pardon the pun, in both categories.  Shaped like a monkey, it’s a fun little 3-in-1 dock, stand and cord wrap that keeps your desk, table or wall socket clutter free and keeps a grip on your iPhone in either landscape or portrait mode.

Gold iPhone 5S fetches over $10,000 on eBay (or maybe not)

iphone 10K

Even if someone spent two days standing in line waiting to get his or her hands on a gold iPhone 5S, it might have been time well spent as one sold today on eBay for $10,100 US. Now I know that the gold version of Apple’s latest high-end iPhone model is somewhat on the scarce side but paying what amounts to over 15 times its retail price seems a little bit ridiculous, there’s no actual gold in it!

Apple sells 9 million iPhones sets new record

Gold Card

While it has only been a year, but it seemed to be a long time coming as the world anxiously awaited the arrival of a new iPhone. Critics said Apple was way behind and quickly losing market share, but after the first weekend, when the dust settled, Apple sold a record breaking number of new iPhone 5S and 5C models in just 3 days after its initial launch this past Friday, September 20th.

“This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”

Analysts had predicted that the company would sell 5-6 million iPhones in the first weekend, but easily surpassed that figure.
