Don’t you just hate it when your smartphone runs out of juice? If you’re like me, you’re probably not far from an open USB port, so you’re set if you’re the type that always carries around a spare cord. But that rarely happens, right? Not if makers Lucky, Nate, and Mark have anything to do about it. Their Cord-On-Board case for the iPhone 4 takes care of the need to always carry around a cord because it keeps one handy inside its durable PVC shell. [via TC]

    Exactly why everyone else in the industry has standardized around micro usb. These days someone always has a charger they can share. I haven’t even bought a car charger.

    This is why it’s nice to be able to switch out batteries as needed.  If you can’t open it….

    beautiful…if you like the fixed aesthetic from the vision of Apple.

    the development of iPhone initiated, also came to the view an
    industry known as iPhone  application
    development. And, for this reason, these who ended up fond of software  development were actually at gain.

    The secondhand market is always something to browse carefully, as there are so many items not quite in the condition advertised. Later on, you may discover that a watch needs more than a new battery, or a guitar can’t be improved with some new pickups. If you have no way of continuing the conversation with the seller, you may end up stuck with useless merchandise.
