Leese Design iPhone Cases: You Can Sew Your Own Way!

I’ve probably seen thousands of iPhone cases, but only a couple interested me enough that I ended up buying them. While I’m not a snob, I’m well aware that a case that doesn’t feature a nice design ethos won’t please me for long.

A 2010 study using measurements taking by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite reported that glaciers in the Himalayas and the Tibetan plateau were shedding about 50 gigatonnes of ice per year.

Cut the Cables: Affordably Priced Wireless Home Speakers

082812_rg_MedPricedWirelessSpeak_01.jpgThere comes a time and a place when you can no longer stomach wires. There can be many reasons for this: maybe your home office is rocking a very minimal look, or you just hate wires with a passion. Needless to say, wireless speakers have come a far way from their humble beginnings, and while they still can’t beat wired ones, there are some viable and affordable options available…
