Incipio Feather Polycarbonate Shell iPad Case Review

Friday, June 25th, 2010

The Incipio feather is, perhaps, the holy Grail of iPad shell cases lacking only in the grip department. It’s smooth matte finish is far more appealing than fingerprint-attracting gloss alternatives such as the Speck CandyShell, but unfortunately provides no more grip than the back of a naked iPad, and still attracts a few greasy finger […]

XGear Live Carbon Folio iPad Case And Stand Review

Friday, June 25th, 2010

During my lurking on the Macrumours forums, both to draw attention to these useful reviews and to get a feel for what people are interested in, I came across a clear desire for a thin, lightweight and simple iPad case that would provide a basic replication of the official Apple case in a slightly nicer […]

Mirror’s Edge for iPad Reviewed

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Bringing along its bigger brother’s anthemic theme song “Still Alive” sung by Swedish pop star Lisa Miskovsky and, of course, the parkour mechanic, Mirror’s Edge is a great example of what can be accomplished on the iPad. It’s not, however, without its drawbacks and in many ways exhibits the telltale signs of a mobile game, […]

iPad Case Review Round-up

Friday, June 11th, 2010

It’s been a busy month or so here at Gadgetoid, without even an iPad to call my own I began looking at iPad cases with the Proporta Maya II iPad Pouch Case and have since looked at a further 10 different iPad cases, with at least 4 more reviews still to come. From the best […]

Hard Candy Bubble Sleeve iPad Case Review

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Neither hard, nor made from candy, or even a sleeve, the Hard Candy bubble sleeve for iPad is an absurdly durable, zip closing case that looks like something a Dalek might carry around their iPad in. The bubble sleeve boasts a trifecta of overkill protection for your iPad, starting with the bubbled outer casing that […]

Speck CandyShell iPad Case Review

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Following on from the PixelShield, the Speck CandyShell is a more traditional iPad shell case with a twist. The hard plastic Speck CandyShell perhaps has the most attractive interior you’ll never see. The drilled-metal-look grey plastic that lines the inside of this hard shell case for the iPad is reminiscent of the OSX dashboard widget […]

Speck PixelShield iPad Case Review

Monday, June 7th, 2010

A veritable bonanza of goodies from Speck turned up today, and despite still lacking the Camera which provides all the lovely photography for iPad case reviews, I’ve had a crack at doing the same with my Nokia N900. First up is the Speck PixelShield iPad case, I’m looking at the version in obnoxiously bright red […]

Red Dead Redemption – Xbox 360 review

Review by Johnus Maximus The year is 1911. When an ex-gunslinger’s family are held captive by the American government, he’s forced to get back in the saddle and hunt the gang of outlaws he used to run with, putting his ideals aside in order to get the job done. Developed by Rockstar San Diego and […]

Griffin Elan iPad Sleeve Case Review

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Yet another iPad case has landed upon my desk here at Gadgetoid. This time it’s the Griffin Elan Sleeve, a back to basics synthetic leather sleeve with a simple but intuitive twist: the clasp doubles up as a pull-tab, which helps you easily and quickly pull your iPad out of the sleeve. Other than this […]
