Custom Cases

Case Mate is a site where you can purchase a case for you phone, but the difference with buying a case from a phone shop or one of those stands in shopping centres is that Case Mate lets you create a fully custom design to jazz up your phone.

Choose from a number of devices from all the iPhones, to Blackberrys, Samsung Galaxy etc then choose a 'Barely There' lexon or 'Tough' plastic and silicon case. Once you have chosen you can then create your case by uploading your own art or using they design tools, which are actually quite impressive.

The cost is $39.99 and they ship internationally at reasonable rates. Great for a present or just to spoil yourself

Angry Birds on your computer

I have just noticed that angry birds now has a PC version. I love this funny little app but I am not sure it really works all that well on the PC. For a start it is strange using a mouse instead of a finger to launch the birds and secondly you have to start all the way back at the beginning as all the levels are locked like on the iphone/android until you complete the one before.

Rovio has built some special levels available only for the Chrome browser and the game includes some Chrome-specific tidbits like Chrome rocks, flowers, and clouds.

Can't grumble though, it is a great time waster

html 5 snippets

It is always nice when someone creates some really handy little code snippets and Roberto Brevé has done just that. With HTML5 Snippets there are some marvellous little html5 and css3 code snippets along with some simple canvas demonstrations that are a great way to get started with it.

This site also allows others to share their own code snippets so that it will hopefully become a large and very useful resource.
