Latest NuGuard KX Cases from NewerTech Offer Ultimate Protection for New Apple iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 | Author:

PR_KX_NuGuardKX_AirNewerTech has announced the immediate availability of updated NuGuard KX cases for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. The NuGuard KX case is the only one of its kind: rather than just surround the iPad with a bulky, hard plastic case, it uses an advanced gel to physically absorb the shock of an unexpected tumble down a flight of stairs as well as other accidental drops and falls. This slim and super-protective technology has been proven to meet and exceed Mil-Spec-certified protection for current iPad mini and iPhone 4/4S/5/5S models — without sacrificing style or adding bulk.

“Our NuGuard KX cases for iPhone and iPad mini have been very well received by thousands of customers, so we’ve expanded the product line to include the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display,” said Larry O’Connor, president of NewerTech. “The NuGuard KX installs in seconds on these new devices to provide incredible protection against accidental drops and dings, and they look terrific! They’re made from a space-age material that’s manufactured here in the USA, and we’ve managed to integrate this technology into these cases at a cost that’s competitive and helps preserve US jobs.”

NewerTech NuGuard KX Case Protects The iPhone 5S Better For Less Money

NuGuard KX

Newer Technology confirmed that its popular NuGuard KX case, the world’s only iPhone case with kinetic energy X-Orbing gel, is ready to protect the amazing new iPhone 5Sannounced this week by Apple Inc. The KX case features a slim, one-piece design that combines a rugged, comfort-grip shell with a soft core. It’s tough: the KX goes beyond Mil-Spec certified protection and is backed by a lifetime warranty. Encased in a NuGuard KX case, the iPhone easily survives 20-foot drops onto concrete — far more than the average parking-lot free-fall that lies ahead for many new iPhones.

Most people need to protect their iPhone to the max — but they don’t want to encase it in hard, bulky plastic. That’s why we developed the NuGuard KX case. Today, we’re pleased to announce that it works perfectly with the iPhone 5S,” said Larry O’Connor, president of Newer Technology. “With its unique, made in the USA X-Orbing gel, the NuGuard KX installs in seconds to provide incredible protection against drops and scratches, while maintaining a remarkably slim, lightweight profile that highlights the forward-thinking look of your iPhone 5S.” Article Continues…

Use Disk Images To Keep Private Data Private

Thursday, August 15th, 2013 | Author:

Globe-BondI always figured I’d make a great secret agent. I’m a pretty good shot (at least with my Red Ryder BB gun), I’m nearly unnoticeable in a crowd (especially at “singles” events), and I know how to keep a secret (I’ve never told anybody that story about OWC Michael, the ferret, and the jar of strawberry jam). It’d be a pretty sweet gig, too: you get a spiffy wardrobe, are accompanied by attractive women with double entendres for names, and—of course—the quartermaster gives you a load of awesome gadgets to play with.

Alas, for a myriad of reasons, it’s not to be. But I can at least act all super-sneaky and such by encrypting data that I want to keep “private” using an encrypted disk image for my data. (Hey, Katie, how’s that for a roundabout, tangental introduction to an article? Ha!)

All kidding aside, though, there are a number of reasons you may want to have encrypted files on your hard drive(s). How about: Article Continues…
