We all like to show our tech a little love and this case has to be one of the best I've seen for the iPhone 6 in this style.
The lovely folks at Proporta gave me one of these to road test and it's not left my phone since it's arrived! The case is made of a premium leather casing which has a firm structure under the hood which means you get the sense that this will both provide dent protection as well as scratch proofing.
The case features a nice pull tab on the back which snaps back into place through a magnetic closure which means you don't have a ribbon flapping about - or having to do any annoying tapping and squeezing to retrieve your phone when you hear it ringing!
Check out the gallery below and follow @Proporta over on Instagram to check them out for yourselves.

The sleeve had a simple pull tab mechanic hidden in the back of the case which makes it easy to lift the iPhone 6 from the case with a simple tug on the tab.
What makes this a nicer implementation of this than on many of these designs I have seen is the premium tab closure that is on the end of the ribbon.

It's made of a high quality metallic tab which has a hidden benefit of being snapped back into place by the magnetic closure hidden in the leather case.
During the dreary month of January you may be finding work just that little bit more taxing, and sometimes no matter how good the kit you have to do the job, you might feel you are in the need to do a little (cue Westwood style voice) "Pimping" of your Mac or iPad? (Clearly other tablets and PC's are available but not worth mentioning here).
So here are 3 great little gadgets to do just that:
Stylus' have come a long way since the days of your Prism or Palm Pad of yesteryear - this little looker from HardCandy does the job twice over - giving a smooth and comfortbale prodding positions withe stylus end, matched with a quality rollerball at the writing end!
This product, when teamed up with an App such as Muji's "Notebook or Penultimate - makes for a perfect combo - meaning drawing or doodling, or even making handwritten notes on the iPad is a sinch. Take the stylus to your laptop trackpad and you get a similar effect - effectively turning your trackpad into (a small) graphics tablet!
All that coupled with the fact that the rollerball uses standard sized refills, meaning no hunting around WHSmiths for an age trying to find a replacement means your Mac and Moleskin will be equally pleased with you.
Headphones are something not to be skimped on. Have worked in radio and music production I can assure you so many people underinvest in decent "cans". These overhead bass machines give great rounded low notes, without the tinny high's that is often found in other brands.
What's most impressive about the Crossfades is the attention to detail paid by V-Moda, not missing a trick. With every pair comes a luxurious moulded travel case, 2 detachable headphone cords (one with iPhone controls, one without), 1/4 inch jack for DJ decks and carribeana to (as I did recently) attach the carry case to other luggage.
Not to mention they look good and come in a great range of colours too.
As much as I love my MacBook Air, the one thing that I miss is robust speakers, particularly if using Spotify playlists at a party or whilst travelling. The new Logitech Laptop Speaker z305 has pretty much fixed the problem.
Powered by USB (which neatly wraps inside the unit), with it's own carry case and at 13" wide and not more than 1.5" square at either end, this makes the perfect travel companion to re-release the tunes.
We regularly have this blaring out music in the office from my little tiny Mac!
So there you go - some tasty treats to kerb the gadget cravings... well for another couple of weeks anyway.
