Leather MacBook Sleeves from Woolnut

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

I’m a sucker for nice leather, especially for my Apple devices. There’s a company called Woolnut making nice MacBook sleeves. I haven’t tested them yet, but Jeff Gamet and I have a couple of them on the way, and I’m looking forward to it. They make different sleeves for MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro (including with Touch Bar), starting at €68 (US$78). Sleeves are made from full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, and the interior of the sleeve is wool. They also make leather wallet cases for iPhone.

iPhone 8 Cases Already for Sale on Alibaba

· Jeff Gamet · Cool Stuff Found

Macotakara found what claims to be an iPhone 8 case on the shopping site Alibaba, so they ordered one to see how it compares to size-wise to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The case matches the rumors and leaks we’ve already seen because it’s slightly too big for the iPhone 7 and just a little too small for the 7 Plus. Odds are the case was designed based on leaks and not Apple’s actual design specifications, so it may not fit an actual iPhone 8. That said, the video they made makes it easy to visualize about how big the phone will be.

Speck's Presidio CLEAR for MacBook Pro Has 4-Feet Drop Protection

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

LAS VEGAS – Speck announced a new case for MacBook Pro (13-inch) that features 4-feet drop protection. Considering the lack of a MagSafe connector for charging on Apple’s new MacBook Pro models, drop protection may be on the minds of lots of folks. Speck said the case is made from its Impactium Clear material originally used for iPhone cases. As the name suggests, Presidio CLEAR is see-through, and it has a “no-slip grip” feel to it. It ships in later in the first quarter of 2017 and is priced at US$99.95—it hasn’t yet been added to the Speck website. I’ve never been a fan of cases on MacBooks, but drop protection? Come on, that’s cool.

gun-shaped iPhone case

A gun-shaped iPhone case is a bad idea in general, and doubly so when you take one to the airport. That’s the important life lesson one man learned when police stopped him in London Stansted Airport with what appeared to be a gun that turned out to be his smartphone.
