I say that if you own an iPhone, then you should just throw out the Nintendo Gameboy all together and wait for anyone of these amazing new iOS 7 MiFi controllers to be released. Don’t get me wrong I think the Nintendo 2DS is cool but in order for me to justify carrying around another device for mobile gaming the price is gonna have to come a down a bit more then 129.99. I already carry my phone everywhere I go and see no immediate need to replace it or add any extra bulk to my person.

That would usually be the point where he picks up his foam Minecraft sword and wants to act out the game with me in real life… and oh yea, I’m a creeper. But since we’ve have our Griffin PowerDock 5 centrally located, and at an accessible height, he just plugs it right in on his own and I no longer have to be bludgeoned.
Let’s focus on the bathtubable part for a moment. Sometimes I like to soak in a warm bath and find it hard to be separated from my phone. Perhaps I’m in the process of reading an eBook or completely unable to tear myself away from a show on Netflix. Now, thanks to this case, taking a bath will no longer impair my iPhone enjoyment.

Because of Apple’s claim, they have been in a two year dispute with Amazon, who released its Amazon App Store for Android in 2011. But now the lawsuit between the two companies has been finally been dropped.
Google recently sent out invites to its first group of Glass Explorers and one of those found its way to me. Thalmic Labs is on the brink of releasing a motion control wristband that amasses salient medical indicators straight from the user. Scanadu has a device capable of capturing a full set of vitals in under ten seconds (a Tricorder X-Prize entrant) and ships soon. What are our plans for these devices? When combined under the new paradigm of evermed’s open source EMR technology, these three cutting-edge devices will mesh seamlessly into a Graphic Reference/Analytic Systems Pod, or Grasp.
