Mayyybe ripping off Nintendo’s name for the Wii-mote a little bit here, but I don’t really care about any of that nonsense. What I do care about is that I could turn on my space heater 15 minutes before I got home, so my place would be cozy upon my arrival. Basically anything you can plug into a wall can be turned into a remote activated device with this Belkin WeMo system — coffee maker, TV, fan, lamp, you name it.
Well this is pretty dope. Using the Lockitron system you can now use your cell phone to lock/unlock your door from anywhere in the world. The WiFi-connected product mounts over your existing deadbolt in seconds and lets you control your lock from wherever you are using SMS or the internet. If you have an iPhone 4S or 5, you can also unlock your door in person without ever touching your keys. The Lockitron will sense you approaching your door using Bluetooth 4.0 and unlock it for you. Lastly, the system will notify you when a friend or spouse returns home, and it has a knock sensor to let you know if someone’s come by to visit. Lockitron is compatible with any smartphone. Older phones can use Lockitron through simple text message commands.

I’m not one that usually keeps a case on my phone, but I could definitely make use of this ReadyCase. It’s super slim first off, which is probably the most important thing for me. It also has an integrated headphone clip, an 8GB or 16GB USB flash drive, and a multi-tool. Pretty dope stuff.
Well, well, well, it’s time for another giveaway. This time around we hooked up with iFixDirect who specializes in custom iPhone accents. They have options to make custom replacement backs, as well as color conversion kits. Right now they work with the iPhone 4 & 4S, but will soon have options for the iPhone 5.
The custom iPhone game is on the verge of exploding. People have been doing it for awhile now, but not a lot of people have paid much attention to it. Now that it seems to be more affordable, more & more people are opting to make their iPhone 1-of-a-kind. Here’s some screenshots of what to expect from mendmyi when they launch their iPhone 5 Colour Lab.
I usually wouldn’t post any kind of rumors relating to Apple, mainly because you never really know what’s going to happen until they have one of those big press conference announcements. But, when I laid my eyes on this realistic concept of the iPhone 5, I had to show some love. That murdered-out look is crushin’.
It’s an incredibly thin, flexible sleeve (.25 millimeters thick) that completely wraps your iPhone and MAKES IT WATERPROOF TO A DEPTH OF 10 METERS. So basically you can barely tell this thing is even on your phone, and you could put a hard case over the top of it, and you could update your Facebook status while scuba diving. You could even snap pics of girls in bikinis underwater in the pool (with their explicit permission of course). The only bummer with this thing is that you would have to remove the sleeve every time you wanted to charge the phone. Maybe it would be something you’d just want to put on for those summer days at the pool or beach. This is not yet available for sale, but you can bet we’ll let you know as soon as you can buy it.
