Otterbox iPhone and iPad Cases

Met a friend today and I saw his iPhone 4. Without giving a second thought, I asked him what case he has on because it looks sturdy and nice. The next thing he did was something I wasn't expecting... he started the video recording on his iPhone 4 and after 5 seconds, he threw his iPhone 4 to the floor!!! I was like OMG! I thought it was an accident or something. Then, he picked up his iPhone 4, showed me that it's still recording! Everything intact and not a single scratch!

Otterbox Commuter for iPhone 3G / 3GS

I forgot to take a photo of his iPhone 4. The photo above is my iPhone 3G. Also, the Otterbox case you can throw around is the Otterbox Defender. The Otterbox I have on my iPhone 3G is the Otterbox Commuter series. Sturdy enough but, not as sturdy as the Otterbox Defender. See the video below.

SkyCable Personal Video Recorder - Works like TiVo, but in the Philippines!

TiVo fans in the US here in the Philippines! SkyCable just announced something new via Twitter! A Personal Video Recorder. Finally, something we wanted for such a long time already!


For the benefit of those unfamiliar with TiVo, here's a short description from Wikipedia,

A TiVo DVR serves a function similar to a videocassette recorder, in that both allow a television viewer to record programming for viewing at a later time. Unlike a VCR, which uses removable magnetic tape cartridges, a TiVo DVR stores television programs onto non-removable hard disk storage.What distinguishes TiVo from other DVRs is the sophisticated software written by TiVo Inc. that automatically records programs—not only those the user specifically requests, but also other material the user is likely to be interested in.
TiVo DVRs also implement a patented feature TiVo calls "trick play," which allows the viewer to pause live television, and rewind and replay up to a half hour of recently viewed television. More recent TiVo DVRs can be connected to a computer local area network, which allows the TiVo device to download information and even video programs, music and movies from the Internet.
Can't wait to try it out! It will work for both  SD and HD and will be launched early 2011.
