Truffol has announced a new line of iPhone 5/5s skins: “Autograph”—a slim line of leather with an optional monogram. Only 0.6mm thick, the cowhide leather skin is available in several colors and two variations, one of which has a pocket for a credit card or driver’s license. Available in black, navy, orange and red, the skin covers the back of the device, and can be inscribed, free of charge, with up to three letters.
Warner Brothers has announced the release of the Warner Archive Instant app for iPad, which will allow subscribers to stream their collection of hard-to-find or cult films and TV shows. The service previously provided print-on-demand no-frills DVDs of content, and is also available via Roku and the web.
Minimalist and elegant, the Atrio for iPhone 5/5s isn’t so much a case as an aluminum bumper that combines with a screen protector and a tempered glass back sheet (both included) to provide wraparound protection for your iPhone. Its understated design detracts very little from the iPhone itself, and and the packaging it comes in is an equally attractive stand.
Telltale Games has announced an upcoming game based on the popular Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin. Game of Thrones has also been adapted into a popular HBO series, and is set in a fantasy world where numerous royal families try to outmaneuver each other on both the battlefield and the King’s court.
The Karbon SP (“sleek protective”) case for iPhone 5/5s is a two-piece system that provides drop protection with a soft, inner shell made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) fitted to an outer hard shell made with Kevlar fibers. Recommended for those who want wrap-around drop and scratch protection, but don’t need a waterproof/total environment case.
Sure, your iPhone was assembled in China by workers who live on-site in dormitories, but what if it looked like you whittled it yourself out of a chunk of grandpappy’s nappin’ tree? The Wood S case from Evutec combines a wood veneer with Kevlar to give the iPhone a natural look with a moderate amount of protection.
Sega has released Demon Tribe, the latest free-to-play digital CCG to hit iOS.

A classic noir story…except that the prostitute is a literally a fairy tale princess, he has to shake down Mr. Toad for info, and the detective? He used to be known as the Big Bag Wolf. Welcome to The Wolf Among Us, the newest episodic game from Telltale, based on the Fables comic book.
