We’ve heard about the paperless office, but how easy is it really to live a paperless life? With cumbersome scanners and poorly designed software, the answer is “not very,” but the Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 and accompanying mobile app are a confident step in the right direction. You can now scan documents straight to your iDevice and send them to your chosen cloud storage, meaning your vital documents are available whenever and wherever you need them.
The fit is off in so many places of the iWalk See-through iPhone case that if it weren’t for the “iPhone 5″ stamp on the inside of the cover I would’ve thought I was given a review unit for the wrong device. It doesn’t matter what it’s made of what colors it comes in, the See-Through is a case iPhone 5 owners simply need to avoid.

I once read a report suggesting that the reason the Toyota Prius was more successful than the Honda Civic Hybrid is because the Prius has its own look. Hybrid owners want everyone to know they’re driving a hybrid—that they’re helping out in some way. If that’s you, you may also be interested in the Papernomad Zattere iPad sleeve. Also, if you’re into doodling.
Most of us iPhone owners put a lot of thought into which case we’re going to use. Along with providing proper protection from bumps, scrapes and drops, we usually want a case to reflect a bit of our personality.
