Preferably somewhere that's nowhere … Read more

First up, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop. This one boasted rugged construction, but had trouble with our torture gantlet: mainly the heat test and the part where I spilled a cup of hot coffee on its otherwise outstanding keyboard. It comes on, but the keyboard and touch pad are unresponsive. … Read more

Recently, we wrote up that Element Case had announced a new, improved version of its swanky Vapor Case called the Vapor Pro iPhone 4 case. It's a slick case with a "unique" titanium alloy finish and a special, aerospace polymer section built over the antenna contact points that the company says eliminates "death-grip" issues and improves Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G reception.
