KarasKustoms debuts new machined aluminum iPad and iPad 2 cases

A long while back, I got my hands on one of the machined KarasKustoms cases for my iPhone 4 and loved the case. It looked great, offered some protection from drops and was all around awesome to behold. The coolest thing about the case to me is that each of them is machined from chunks of aluminum and then uses screws to attach it. The gang at KarasKustoms has now turned the aluminum machining prowess towards making cases for your iPad or iPad 2.

We've received our very own duo of iPad 2 armors from Fusion of Ideas - that's right, it's time again for SteathArmor!

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 12 2011

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 12 2011

Another week in the history books and another Week in Review for you to check out. We started the week last week with the alarms not working on older OS versions of the iPhone. At least the alarms were an hour early and not an hour late. The only fix for me was updating to the latest version of the OS.

The board was designed to warn people of the germs roaches carry and to set an example to all the roaches watching of what can happen if they come into your home.

At least I can have some things that are made from high-tech exotic car materials like carbon fiber. Things like this new iPad 2 case from XGearlive.
