I suppose the drawback here is that every time I hand my iPhone to a musician, he’ll want to break into “Stairway to Heaven” or “YYZ” like those guys at the music store? That’s the price you pay for one of the coolest iPhone case ideas I’ve seen in quite some time. Tonewood Products has announced a line of iPhone cases built from genuine guitar tonewoods in maple, mahogany and rosewood. Sadly, Brian May’s fireplace isn’t an option.
TabTale has launched Crazy Labs—a new publishing brand of indie games “for older audiences”—and older audiences apparently love themselves some air hockey.
