iPhone Case

I upgraded to an iPhone 5s a couple of months after the new phones were released. After going a couple of weeks without one, I thought it’d be a good idea to get a new case before I dropped the phone on the floor and cracked it.

There are so many iphone cases on the market right now
that it was hard for me to figure out which one to get. The iPhone 5s’ sleek design is great, and the weight of the thing is pretty amazing, especially to someone like me who waited a long time to upgrade. (I was sporting a 3GS, believe it or not). I really wanted to get a case that was ultra thin, but after looking into it, I decided that something that was a bit bigger would be better. A thin case might look great, but if what you’re trying to do in the end is just protect the phone, a thin case might not be the best way to go.

What I decided on was an OtterBox Defender in Grey/White. They have a LOT of different color cases to choose from.

It’s been a few months since I’ve had it, and I’m very pleased with how it’s held up. No scratches at all on the outer casing, and the thing came with a built in screen protector, so I didn’t have to fork out the extra money for one of those.

Room Temperature Quantum Bit Storage Exceeding 39 Minutes

Room temperature quantum bit storage for over 39 minutes. It’ll be interesting to see how long they can extend this.

StartUps: Silicon Valley

The finale of StartUps Silicon Valley aired last night. Interesting little show, but much too much drama, especially surrounding one particular person on the show, that will remain unnamed here.

Here’s an article that talks about the show’s premiere. I’m pretty sure this show will be on rotation on Bravo if you want to see it, even though this season has ended.

If they do another season, I’d like to see a new set of folks in the show that they follow around. This season was too much “get into a situation where one person blows everything up”.
