Has Apple Lost Its Innovation Mojo?

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 | Author:

LarrysDeskIt seems fashionable these days for industry observers to claim that innovation is on the wane in Cupertino. And it’s not just tech industry pundits and insiders — it’s becoming a common theme beyond the tech scene. Just the other morning, a local radio DJ was criticizing Apple for not innovating like they used to — two days in a row! Of course, this has long been the rallying cry of Apple naysayers ever since Steve passed away, but it’s disturbing (to me, at least) to hear this opinion resonating in popular culture. Especially when the evidence of this so-called lack of innovation seems pretty hard to find.

The chips are certainly stacked high in the mobile sector, where the iPhone and iPad have together transformed what was a once a pretty stodgy industry into a vibrant and highly competitive battleground. I think that’s part of what’s happening here: things have become personal. It’s one thing for family members to quarrel over Windows vs. Mac, but an even more personal battle when it’s Droid vs. iPhone. Why — because now we’re talking about the most personal of computers. Smartphones have become, for many people, an expression of their personality and fashion tastes (enter the iPhone 5C!). Article Continues…

iPhone 5S EventAs expected, today’s Apple Special Event focused almost entirely on the new iPhone 5 designs, but that’s not to say there were no surprises.

NuGuard KX: Asset To The Accident-Prone

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 | Author:

If you know me, it’s no secret that I’m rather accident-prone. Seriously, who else do you know that could be innocently walking past a soccer game and suddenly get hit in the face with the ball? Have you tripped up several stairs at once? Or maybe you have gotten up in the middle of class only to find that your leg is asleep and can’t support your weight, thus falling dramatically to the ground in front of your graceful peers? Yep, I’m that lucky.

So, it would only make sense for someone like me to invest in one of our NuGuard KX cases. It comes in handy when I somehow swivel my chair and in one fell swoop knock down everything on my desk, including my phone. I see it falling in slow motion and wonder what to save first—my vase of fake flowers, the framed picture of my Nana, or my phone. Well, now I can take one of those things out of the running. I can laugh maniacally as I watch my phone tumble downward because I know it’s protected within the confines of my KX case. (And in case you were wondering, I saved Nana). Article Continues…

What We Learned From You About The NuGuard KX iPhone Case

Friday, February 22nd, 2013 | Author:

Make Your Case – Get Our Case

That was the name of our NuGuard KX case trade-in promotion at Macworld | iWorld Expo 2013 and the concept was simple:

Tell or show us why you need to trade-in your iPhone 5 or 4/4S case and we’ll replace it with our NuGuard KX Kinetic Energy X-Orbing iPhone Case!

And, boy oh boy, were we treated to some stories about broken iPhone experiences at the show. Some owners were on their second or even third iPhone because of damage from accidental drops. From the student that crushed her iPhone in a backpack to the construction worker who admitted he drops his iPhone all the time when loading and unloading his truck, the stories were consistent – the case they chose just didn’t provide the protection they needed.
