Draco Design Supernova aluminum bumper for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Draco Design Aluminum Bumper for Galaxy S5

You'll have to manage ergonomic issues and a big price, but this bumper sure looks nice.

If there's one recurring complaint of Samsung's devices, even with the updated design of the Galaxy S5, it's the use of plastic for the entire external build. Plastic is less expensive, easier to mold into a variety of shapes, colors and designs and offers many advantages when it comes to making devices that have various radios inside. That doesn't really matter, though, as most people would prefer that Samsung would step up their game in the materials department regardless.

Draco Design makes several beautiful cases for a variety of devices, and the latest Supernova aluminum bumper for the Galaxy S5 may be just what the doctor ordered for those who just can't stand the look and feel of a plastic smartphone.

The Qmadix S Series Cover for the HTC One M8

HTC One M8 Qmadix S Series Cover

And here we have the QMadix S Series Cover for the HTC One M8. This is a hard plastic shell case that definitely beefs up how much abuse your M8 will be able to tolerate — from the back at least. It also adds a few millimeters of thickness to the phone, but we'd argue that's excusable given that it makes the phone easier to hold overall. You can thank the front RIM for that. It gives you a little extra grip, provides a little contrast in design, and also recesses the display a little bit, so you can place the phone face-down without worrying about scratching anything.

The back of the case is a smooth, semi-gloss finish. The black version we have tends to show off the oil from fingers pretty well, so you'll be wanting to wipe this guy off. (Or not. Your call.) The camera lenses also will be recessed a bit, so they'll be a little protected as well.

MiniSuit BluBoard Bluetooth keyboard review

MiniSuit BluBoard Android Review EVGA Tegra Note 7

Last year we reviewed the MiniSuit Keyboard Case for Nexus 7, a well-designed tablet-specific Bluetooth keyboard. As it turns out, MiniSuit has more keyboard offerings for Android users. The cream of the crop is the MiniSuit BluBoard, a universal Bluetooth keyboard that works with Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

The BluBoard is designed for tablets up to 10-inches in size, making it quite a practical way to get typing work done on larger tablets. But it can also hold smaller tablets like my Tegra Note 7, as pictured. If you’re looking for a full-sized keyboard for your Android and other mobile devices, this might be the one for you. Head past the break for a closer look at the BluBoard.

Google Glass online orders are still apparently open

12

Update: Aaaaaaand it's gone. Google's store is now marked as out of stock. TechCrunch got details.

Last week Google Glass ditched the invites and went on sale to anyone and everyone for just one day. That meant that whoever wanted to snag Glass could do so without any caveats, like having to sign up for the Explorer program or wait on an invite. While the Glass page is currently showing the program as closed once again, it appears that Glass may still be available for purchase directly from Google.

Body Glove ShockSuit Case for the HTC One (M8)

Body Glove ShockSuit for M8

If you work hard or play hard, you need a case that allows your HTC One M8 take an extra bump or two. Whether you are working out in the field with mother nature, in the shop with the dust and equipment everywhere, in a squad vehicle looking out for the public or anywhere where your phone is going to take some extra abuse, the Body Gloce ShockSuit case is going to keep your M8 safer. The case isn't waterproof (though it is MIL-STD-810G rated), but when facing the mud, or sparks from a welder, or the door frame on your service vehicle the ShockSuit case will save your M8 from a world of hate.

Like most other rugged cases, the ShockSuit is a two-piece design. You put your M8 into the front polycarbonate outer shell — be sure to read the supplied instructions to make this easier — which also has a thick plastic screen protector that fared well against my keys. Once the front is on, you slip the assembly into the thick rubber outer housing. Then, your M8 is ready when things get a little tough. The trade off is that it's not the easiest case in the world to put on or take off — but you knew that going in when you bought a rugged case. The screen is still responsive even with the protective cover, but you will lose that incredible sensitivity that the M8 seems to posses in it's touch sensor. But it's not bad. Again, a tradeoff for ruggedness.
