i-DiveSite Waterproof Case for iPhone 4/4s only PHP 5,999


Back up to a year ago and I reviewed the Patima iPhone 4/4s housing which set a diver back by around PHP 15,000.00. Today, LMK Commercial has brought in iDiveSite’s own SCUBA case for the iPhone and it is only a third of the cost and highly justifiable.

What’s comforting is that iDiveSite has provided a downloadable app that bypasses the ever-changing lock screen of the housing. Underwater, you can’t swipe to unlock.

Depth Rating: 50 meters
Controls: 3 Buttons and home button
Software: Dedicated App for housing
Functions: Switch between video and stills, activate sleep mode, activate any button
Lens Mount: M32 – ready for wide angle and macro wet lenses
Colors: White, black, green, orange, magenta and blue

In terms of build quality I really am not sure how the material holds up with all the pressure but since the iPhone case itself is small, it should be leak proof. I hope!


Address: Unit 11 2nd Floor Maga Centre, Paseo de Magallanes, San Antonio St., Brgy. Magallanes, 1232 Makati

From MRT EDSA Taft Station, take any jeepney and get off at Paseo de Magallanes. LMK is the white building with Dayrits and Union Bank on the ground floor. It is near Koi Village.

Google releases Google Maps App for iOS

It’s no secret that ever since Apple removed the native Maps app powered by Google with the previous version of iOS, users went clamoring back for it. Apple’s Maps replacement for iOS 6 wasn’t so great — in fact it even led to people getting lost in the wilderness in Australia by providing bad directions.

Well, that nightmare is over now as Google has released an official Google Maps app for iOS 6. Thing is, it is only available in the US store as of late so if you have a PH account, the app won’t show up in the store.

PowerMat for iPhone 4s sells for PHP 3,490.00

I want to make something clear: the PowerMat is not a portable charging solution like the BoostCase or any other portable battery packs you find in the market. Many people seem to misconstrue its function, most likely due to the wording of the product — it has the word “Power” in it.

So what is it? The PowerMat ecosystem allows you to charge your devices (almost) without the need of a cable. I keep a PowerMat charging system for my iPhone at home and a wider PowerMat system for Android / iPhone in the office. Buying into this ecosystem implies a mindset that you will need to dock your phone in places you frequent to keep your gadgets fully charged. Since the docks don’t require cables, dropping your gadgets into these “outlets” are second nature.

Now assume everyone in the office or in your household had an Android device, a BlackBerry or an iPhone. Everyone could simply share one or two PowerMats to keep their devices charged.


PowerMat with Powercube PHP 3,990.00
PowerMat for iPhone 4/4s PHP 3,490.00

What we learn from the leaked “iPhone 5” part

Word is out that the Apple iPhone supply chains have been invaded and parts are surfacing on the web. Here’s one video that brings further proof of a 4-inch iPhone 5 that may be out by September 2012.

EDIT: Ding! We were right. The new iPhone screen is a 4″ wonder that comes with LTE connectivity.

Breaking it down:

The new iPhone will use a nano-SIM because of the smaller tray (it’s even smaller than the current microSIM). This adds proof to Apple’s bid for making their new SIM concept a global standard, announced several days ago. The iPhone 5 may be the first device to tout the new SIM card configuration.

The phone isn’t that much bigger given the tray size. It’s probably a half inch longer in length. In retrospect, having an iPhone that’s bigger than 4″ might pose problems with the UI as most of the apps have the virtual buttons on the upper left and right hand side of the screen while the home button is still right down below.

The new iPhone 5 won’t be using the standard Apple charger and may in fact be adopting micro USB because of its popularity as a standard for most charging solutions.

The 3.5mm jack was moved to the bottom of the device.

The iPhone 5 will be just slightly thinner than the iPhone 4/4s. Also, two tone design!

Of course, these are only speculations as the community is not 100% sure that these designs are completely accurate. Nonetheless, the iPhone 5 is coming in a few months. But for now, everyone is raving for the new 2012 MacBook refresh this month!
