The (XCM Eye-Candy shell) the replacement shell for NDSi console is awesome. Unfortunately, it’s “coming soon”, so no definite price or availability info is available yet. In the meantime, enjoy the product photography below (click on the thumbnails for larger-size versions):
XCM also has accessories for other popular consoles, but this eye-candy shell seems to be made only for the DS Lite. At any rate, I’m sure cheaper versions have been available from China for quite a while now.

One benefit of e-ink is the fact that shining a light on it is enough to make low-light reading possible. That’s a reality exploited by the Periscope Lighted Folio for Kindle 2, which is basically a folio (well, duh!) with space for a notepad, pens, a swiveling twin LED light, and of course, a Kindle 2. That’s all for $50.
The Periscope Lighted Folio also has space for 3 “AA” batteries, which—as claimed by maker Periscope—can power the LED light for 40 hours or more. Periscope also made sure to highlight its Folio’s magnetic lock feature, which allows the user to …read more
Yes, we’ve already shown that expensive cases like camera bags have their very affordable alternatives. Here’s something we found through Philippine affiliate Technograph.
I bet a common objection to the Kindle 2 (or any e-book reader for that matter) is the classy feel. Something about a well-bound book seems more traditional, weighty, and significant. Maybe that’s why these leather Kindle 2 covers (available from Amazon of course) could make up for the reader’s plastic-based existence. From vendors like Cole Haan, M-edge, and Amazon itself, here’s a sample listing:

Introducing the Carbon Fiber iPhone 3G Case, a good buy in a world where spending $85 for a phone protector sounds sensible.
To be fair though, DRO Concepts promises that their product is made out of genuine carbon fiber, which of course implies strength and lightness. And like any well-designed case that somewhat justifies the price tag, the carbon fiber case is designed in such a way that still permits full access to the iPhone’s controls.

If there’s a reason not to pay for brands like Crumpler, it’s how much attention their products can attract. That’s why this stealthy camera bag project on the Wired How-To Wiki is worth a look. Made out a surplus army bag and store-bought foam, making the nondescript but protective camera bag is a simple matter of cutting the foam to size and stuffing it into the canvas bag’s compartments. Expect to spend $30 at most, and a little of your time for this home crafting project.
Whether it’s bright colors, stylized appearance, or that distinctive logo, those gadget bags can broadcast …read more
Once upon a time, I got duped into buying a Crumpler for my 15″ laptop (the somewhat appropriately named Dreadful Embarrassment). No doubt, a Crumpler is trendy, but my experience with them so far is all bulk and barely any function. It didn’t help that the aforementioned Dreadful Embarrassment has no padding: during a sudden auto stop, the bag flew from the seat, with my laptop bearing the brunt of the impact as everything landed on the floor.
In any case, maybe my stance on Crumplers can change, because the Gadgenista recently featured the Albert Crunch, a more compact-looking bag the …read more
A bit late on the uptake are we, but The Gadgenista recently featured the Applepod case for the iPod Shuffle:
Hahaha, a bit redundant but amusingly funny! I mean seriously, you just have to love what Apple fanboys come up with.
And can I just say I really love the rainbow colors? Hehehe. Look pretty cute as a buttoniere, too!
Each Applepod case is custom-made so you can actually pick the colors that you want. The case also has slots for the shuffle clip and for the headphones.
