Mophie makes all sorts of cool accessories for the iPhone from regular cases to the Juicepack line of cases that add battery life to your iPhone. Back in late December 2009, we heard that Mophie was working on a new credit card reader for the iPhone but we had few details on the device.
I have owned a couple iPhones now and for each model I have owned I have a Mophie Juice Pack to keep its battery running longer. My favorite is the thin Juice Pack Air for my 3GS iPhone. Mophie is set to unveil another hardware accessory for the iPhone that looks a lot like the Juice Pack Air that is actually a credit card reader.
Considering how hungry today's gadgets are for power, it's no surprise most geeks break out into a cold sweat when they're away from a mains socket. V-Dimension aims to change all that, with their Helius solar-powered backpack: they claim its integrated battery is good enough to keep even the most avid iPhone 3G user juiced-up.
In my experience people with iPhone can’t seem to put them down. Giving that the phone only has about two hours of life per charge, that’s not going to last most people, not between texting/music/videos/calls.
This morning you're going to feel the aftershocks of the Apple event that took place yesterday, so you might want to get up to speed with our giant WWDC 2012 Keynote Round-Up. Next head down the rabbit hole with the waves that will continue to move on in now that Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference's first big bang has subsided. Start with Mophie Juice Pack and move on directly to the Satechi WRT-A remote for your Canon 5D.
This New Years Day, yesterday for those of you living in a basement with the lights off, Japanese shoppers got a chance to pick up what's called a Fukubukuro, or "Lucky Bag," that being an official grab bag of relatively randomly assorted items from the store for their enjoyment! While we'll never, ever, ever see such an awesome situation happening here in the United States, this practice is said to have been going on each year since the onset of 2005. While most shoppers got a selection of accessories like headphones, cases, and Apple 1-inch buttons, some were lucky enough to snag gems like a MacBook Air or iPad 2.
Wow what a freaking wild day - phones exploding, 'Splosions being announced, and we get announced to a [Google Chrome event] for next week! This really gets me pumped up. Events are the best. There's breakfast there. Also today we get our hands on a [ONA Union Street Camera and Messanger bag], review a [simplehuman sensor can] (for electronic garbage tossing!), and scream like little girls over the Android release of Pocket God. There's a new smart gun announced for use by US troops in Afghanistan and KISS re-releases their epic coffin line (coincidence?) Philip Berne writes an epic take on [Hannukah and the Hobby Lobby], and NOOKcolor has an SDK released for developers.
