Your favorite artist's favorite artist, now adorning Incase gear
Incase is no stranger to collaborative projects with established contemporary pop artists, Over the years they’ve produced cases adorned with the art of Jose Parla, Evan Hecox, Parra, Andre, and Steven Harrington. Now Incase is collaborating with the most famous pop artist of them all, Andy Warhol, through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The combination of Andy Warhol and technology makes sense. Warhol was known to walk with a tape recorder by his side at all times and he was the first artist to utilize the computer as an artistic tool. Cases, MacBook sleeves, and even shoulder bags have been adorned with work from the artist, including the iconic banana that graced the classic Velvet Underground album. Select pieces are already available in Incase’s online store, with wider distribution to Apple retail sports and boutiques to follow shortly.
Louis Vuitton is no stranger to the luxury iPhone case game, producing plenty of damier printed goodies for the whole iPhone family. But while they’ve done an admirable job of making your iPhone more stylish and protected, they haven’t really made it more useful…until now. It’s taken a while but Louis Vuitton is finally throwing their hat into the iPhone app market. But instead of throwing together some shoddily assembled promotional app, or simply letting you shop for Louis bags on your phone, they did one better and actually made something useful; Amble, an app that has been designed with the jet-setting, world weary traveler in mind.

There’s t-minus four days left til’ Christmas, which makes it the perfect time to get some last minute shopping done. While most people appreciate a little thought and effort put into their gifts, who has the time for all of that? Certainly not I, and clearly not you if you’re here reading this post.

iPhone can't make it through the day on a single charge?
If you’re anything like me then you probably use your iPhone for a lot more things than just making calls and sending lewd text messages. You’re probably checking your Twitter timeline like a maniac and Twitpic-ing that chick on the bus with the lime green crocs. You’re also probably constantly checking Facebook for your friends’ updates. You could even be spending way too much time playing Awesome Solitaire trying to beat your loved one’s high score… Whatever you’re doing the end result is a near dead battery by the time the sun goes down, which can be a pretty big pain in the badonkadonk if you don’t happen to be near a computer with an iPod cable in hand. Of course, this wouldn’t even be an issue if you had you’re svelte little phone strapped into the Mophie Juice Pack Plus. The Juice Pack Plus is an ultra-thin, light weight external battery case that boasts a 2,000 mAh charging capacity. The battery grants insatiable iPhone users like myself more than double the battery life on-the-go. It also enhances the iPhone 4′s acoustic sound and does a pretty good job at actually protecting it from accidental drops (or intentional throws). Right now it’s available in black at mophie.com for $99.95 with cyan, magenta, and yellow versions to follow in the near future.
I know I’ve written roughly 75 billion posts dedicated to various cases for Apple’s line of iPhones, but fear not dear iPad owner for I haven’t forgotten about you. Incase, no stranger to collaborations, hooked up with Wired Magazine on this iPad Snap Case meant to celebrate the power of your…fingertips? Yeah, the ends of your digits that you take for granted are a lot more important than you probably realize. Why, without fingertips you couldn’t even use that precious iPad of yours or get fingerprinted at the airport as you jet around the world. Speaking of fingerprints, the otherwise all white case features a fingerprint graphic on the backside. Probably a wee bit more important as far as your iPad’s safety is concerned are the technical specs. The iPad Snap Case is precision-engineered to be the lightest weight case in Incase’s iPad case line and provides plenty of coverage, scratch protection, and direct access to all your iPad’s buttons and features. It’s available exclusively online at the Wired Store and Incase’s web shop.
