Supposing you saw the iPhone 5c and didn't find Apple's own official cases to be appealing as you'd wished, this week you may be in luck. Industrial Designer and 3D illustrator Martin Hajek has created a set of NURBS models for customization of this basic case, allowing users to get creative as they please. The first thing Hajek did was to open up the center column of holes along the backside of the iPhone 5c case to reveal the iPhone logo.
The Chromebook Pixel has been talked about in regards to specs and pricing, however it would appear as if there is also a rather interesting easter egg. This one deals with the Konami Code and interestingly enough, this is not the first time Google has hidden a Konami Code easter egg in one of their products. Way back in mid-2008 Google Reader had one that greeted you with “Moshi moshi” and marked all your feeds with 30 unread items.
This week the folks at ASUS have revealed the VivoTab Smart Tablet, a full Windows 8 tablet with a 10.1-inch full touchscreen display and a unique combination of wireless keyboard and foldable cover which holds the unit upright. This machine is being shown live and in person at CES 2013 and a looks like a winner if ever a Windows 8 tablet was one.
Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. Today we found out that nightly builds to CyanogenMod 10.1 are ready to go for the Nexus 10, which comes just a short time after nightlies started rolling out for the Nexus 4. IDC said today that Android will likely stay on top in the battle for mobile dominance until 2016, with iOS placing in second throughout, so it looks like the mobile landscape won't be changing all that much in the coming years. Verizon is set to begin rolling out targeted ad campaigns this week, but you'll only see those ads if you give Verizon permission.
We've got an odd assortment of accessories for you to peek at here, most of them being cases and protections of different sorts for some of the more popular devices on the market - but there are some weird bits as well.

We've got some gems for you here, that's for sure.
Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is here at last, but before we dive in, it's time to recap the news. Today we heard that Microsoft might be testing out a smartphone of its own, which doesn't really surprise us considering that it just recently entered the tablet market. Apple's freshly rephrased "apology" to Samsung went live in UK newspapers today, and one analyst is expecting the iPad mini to top 1.5 million sales this weekend. Speaking of the iPad mini, we saw a drop test featuring the tiny slate today, and the tablet launched to shorter-than-normal lines for an Apple product.
We've arrived at another Friday evening, which means that the weekend lies ahead. Today, as many of you probably already know, was the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Apple paid tribute to Jobs in a new video released today, and it was announced that three modified MacBook Pros will be auctioned off in memory of Jobs. On the lighter side of things, Lenovo is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ThinkPad with a look back through time, and Samsung's profits for Q3 2013 managed to break company records (not an easy thing to do, considering how popular Samsung is).
Smartphone cases have been sort of a saturated market lately. Pretty much everyone and their siblings are making all kinds of different cases that are flooding the market, and it seems only a few good case manufacturers are getting the press coverage they deserve, like OtterBox, Mophie, and Moshi to name a few. However, a company called Loop Attachment is looking to make a dent in the market with a unique Halloween-themed iPhone case called the Mummy.
