Kyocera recently announced the Torque, a mid-range smartphone that’s encased in a thick hard plastic shell that can absorb energy when dropped. It’s also water resistant and impervious to dust, and while the average hiker could easily take advantage of the device, the company also targets it towards construction workers and even parents who have small kids that can be more than a little rough with toys.

CES 2013 wrap-up: Accessories steal the show

In some ways, one could argue that CES 2013 was really all about the accessories. Sure, a lot of companies where there unveiling new hardware, whether that hardware was a massive TV, a new gaming tablet, or a phone that has an eInk display on the backside, but there were more accessories than we care to count being shown on the floor.

Apple was alive and well at CES 2013

Tons of big-name companies make an appearance at CES every year, and while Microsoft backed out of this year's show, there were still a bevy of companies that filled the void. LG, Sony, Qualcomm, Verizon, Samsung, Intel, and more, all stepped up to the plate to take Microsoft's place, but one other big-name company that made an appearance at the show was Apple. They didn't necessarily have a booth, or had any of their execs on the show floor, but their products were everywhere, and I'm not even exaggerating when I say such a thing.

iPhone 5 facing shortages over touch trouble tip insiders

iPhone 5 stocks could be constrained after touch panel defects have been discovered to affect some units, it's reported, with issues in the lamination process supposedly to blame. Some of the panels supplied by Wintek have been found to suffer "delayed bubble" problems, DigiTimes reports, where bubbles of gas are trapped in-between the multi-layer films used.

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

In the world of earphones, there are some obvious tiers: the bundled earbuds that came with your PMP or cellphone and should probably be dumped straight away; their mainstream replacements; off-the-shelf in-ear monitors (IEMs); and then custom-molded IEMs. There's also a less publicized hierarchy, of the audio craftsmen behind the IEMs themselves. Ask an audiophile their opinion of Jerry Harvey, and you can probably expect an hour or two of hero-worship; having tested out the new JHAudio JH16 Pro custom IEMs, we now know why. Check out the full review after the cut.
