With a built-in waterproof headphone jack, BioLogic says their $20 Dry Bag will keep your iPhone safe, clean, and dry in dirty conditions and in water up to three feet deep — all while letting you use your iPhone like you normally would.

I was wary of the claim, so decided to put it to the test.

WSJ: New iPhone Will Feature Thinner Display With In-Cell Touch Technology

The new iPhone could be at least 1.4mm thinner thanks to its new display.

In an effort to make its sixth-generation iPhone slimmer than previous models, Apple will reportedly introduce a new display that features clever  ”in-cell” touch technology that allows it to become significantly thinner than existing iPhone displays by negating the need for a dedicated digitizer. According to sources for The Wall Street Journal, mass production of these displays has already begun.

This iPod Nano Concept Better Is Than The Real Thing

This iPod Nano Concept Better Is Than The Real Thing

I'd trade my crappy square Nano in for one of these in a second
