I love how my iPhone 5 looks. I love it to bits! Any iPhone 5 owner would probably tell you that, if not for the risk of accidentally dropping (or banging) their own unit, it would really be swell to carry this device commando-style. Why? Because the iPhone 5 looks so damn handsome on its own.
But, the reality is that the iPhone 5 is susceptible to little knicks and scratches. Not good at all. The natural thing to do is immediately head over to a smartphone accessory shop and purchase a protector for your device so you can somehow have a little bit more peace of mind.
It’s true… an iPhone 5 casing/protector isn’t just a fashion statement. It’s a necessity especially if you care dearly for your phone.
The question now is this: Is there some sort of middle ground wherein a protector can be just as functional in “protecting” yet not as flashy as to take away from the actual beauty of the iPhone 5′s form factor?
The answer is YES.
Enter, the InnerExile Odyssey 5 Aluminum Bumper. It is everything you’d want from an iPhone 5 protector – strong, sleek, sturdy… without the overly flashy, colorful designs of typical iPhone 5 casings being sold all over.

A month after getting an iPad Mini, only now have we actually fitted our device with protective casing. I guess my wife wanted to savor its “commando look” before pimping it up with a much needed cover. Can’t blame us… you know how handsome these Apple gadgets are especially when struttin’ it around in all its ummm… nakedness.
My wife really loves the iPad Mini – It’s never a burden to bring along, the battery life seems to last forever and is just as functional as its big brothers sans the bulk.
There are a ton of iPad Mini cases in the market ranging from jelly-type protectors to novelty covers so choosing the right one gets pretty confusing. But in the end, it all boils down to personal taste and functionality.
This particular protective casing boasts of a leather finish which, in my opinion, gives the iPad Mini a more elegant and classy appearance (think “pogi points”, folks!) – it’s the kind of look that never goes out of style.
It also sports a built-in “Smart Cover” which automatically awakens your device or puts it to sleep whenever the case is opened or closed.
When it comes to money matters, one has to be very careful where they spend their hard-earned cash.
Just because one establishment says their item is cheaper than a similar item sold by another DOES NOT necessarily mean it actually is. It’s all in the wording. If you don’t do your own pencil-pushing, you are putting yourself at risk of throwing away more money than you should.
Case in point… the much awaited iPhone 5. This is one hot commodity everyone is looking to purchase. Two telco giants are bringing this baby in come Dec 14, 2012 – Globe and Smart. Both have already announced their respective pricing scheme for the iPhone 5.
As with any item being sold, an interested individual would first have to consider where he/she can get this smartphone at the most affordable price. This is where it gets tricky.
Which telco is really offering the iPhone 5 at a lower price?
