More iPhone 11 cases? Yes, more iPhone 11 cases!

Ha! Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the digital waters… I kid, of course, but there are just a ton of new cases and accessories coming out to support this one gadget (aka, the iPhone 11). As we come across the cooler and interesting ones, we’ll be bringing them to your attention. Today, we want to cover off on what CaseMate and Smartish have on tap.

TotalWatchRepair showed me how much was in a quartz movement

When it comes to watches, many of us find the complex mechanical watches to be technical marvels, and we’re of course drawn like moths to the flash and dash of the smart watches out there. But what of the “lowly” quartz movement? I recently got to see just what all was comprised of one when I sent my Mido Ocean Star President over to TotalWatchRepair for some TLC.

Sounds like Audio-Technica has some nice wireless headphones on the way

While we weren’t over at IFA for all of the fun news and hands-on, there were plenty of venerable outfits over there checking out all the stuff. One item in particular caught my eye, a sub-$100 pair of wireless headphones from Audio-Technica that Engadget played around with.

The Turing Tumble – a marble-powered computer game

Yes, that’s right – a marble-powered computer game. But not in the sense that you’re thinking, whatsoever. At first glance, the Turing Tumble looks like one of those marble maze things that kids love to play with. Ok, I really like playing around with them too, I’ll admit it. But what if kids could learn the logic concepts behind computing? That’s what the Turing Tumble is setting out to do.

You can’t say I didn’t warn you – new iPhones means new iPhone cases. I already told you about a really cool hand-crafted leather one last week, and then a more traditional hard-case approach (here and here) . Now, we’ve got another leather option in the form of the Ekster case.

Urban Armor Gear, protecting your phone better than a mall ninja

I’m sorry – when Victor told me about Urban Armor Gear, my mental image went immediately to that rather unflattering mental image of the stereotypical mall ninja (you know, the type who thinks r/iamverybadass is something to aim for as a goal in life). Fortunately, I quickly looked at what UAG was offering, and was disabused of this notion. They’re producing what looks like a very robust case, and of course there’s a new version for the iPhone 11.

Merrell x Dogfish – a great outdoor pairing

As you’re well-aware, via our Afternoon Beer Break series (here and on WWR), we’re fans of the hoppy suds (and all the many varieties). Well, I can’t speak for everyone else, but I also like the outdoors – camping, hiking, the whole bag. Merrell is a big name in that segment (in fact, I do have a pair of their shoes in the closet), and they just announced a collaboration with Dogfish that resulted in the Merrell Agility Synthesis X Dogfish.
