Since the Nintendo Wii hit the market, a number of LCD and plasma flat panel TV screens have met an untimely demise. Give a gamer a Wii Remote to fling about without the wrist strap in place and a broken TV is likely.
The iPhone 4 has Gorilla Glass magic, right, and so can't be damaged by us mere mortals? Sadly not; Gdgt's Ryan Block has tweeted an image of a review iPhone 4 - apparently from the pocket of Josh Topolsky - that's gained a few unsightly scratches in the few days its been in the wild.
Last we heard, iFixit were in the process of tearing down an iPhone 4 and exposing its delicate innards to the world. That's now finished, and we've got a whole list of parts that help make the Apple smartphone's hardware special. Top of the list for most will be the doubled RAM over the iPad - 512MB versus 256MB, as expected - but there's also an FM radio receiver and a Gorilla Glass fascia.
I have one of the plain Gorillatorch flashlights and it is a fantastic little device. The thing is a flashlight with adjustable brightness that is attached to a tripod with articulating legs and magnetic feet. What all that means is that you can attach the Gorillatorch to any metal surface (not aluminum obviously) and use the flashlight hands free.
It’s time for another giveaway here on SlashGear! Gorillapod have given us two of their new Gorillamobile for iPod touch cases, the only iPod touch case that comes with its own set of flexible, bendable legs, making watching movies on your iPod Touch much more enjoyable than holding it on your hand.
A few months back I spent some time playing with the Joby Gorillatorch flashlight. The Gorillatorch is a flashlight that is attached to a tripod with three magnetic feet. The thing is fantastic and puts light just where you want it without you having to hold it, assuming there is metal around. Joby has now announced similar tech for cameras called the Gorillapod Magnetic.
The new Gorillatorch allows you to brighten up any area without having to hold a flashlight. And with a bendable tripod, the light can be positioned in anyway you want. It also sports magnetic feet.
Powered by three AA batteries, there is a dimmer feature that ranges from 65 lumens to energy-saving levels. You can get the Gorillatorch starting in September for between $29.95 and $34.95.
Today's full of announcements, and the next one comes straight from PowerTraveller Ltd, which has just launched the minigorilla, a portable charger for netbooks and other mobile products that will give users up to six hours of extra power on their device.
What's cool about this tripod is that it can be used on just about any surface because of its ball joint legs. They can even bend so as to attach your device to a bike, a light pole or what have you.
Included with the Gorillamobile tripod is a suction-cup mount and adhesive clips. You can get the tripod by the end of the summer for $29.95.

The added battery life is certainly worth it, almost $300 is a lot of money for some people.
