The election is just 27 days away, and with President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney neck and neck for the presidency, there has never been a more opportune time to champion your candidate of choice or learn more about the issues at stake. Make a political statement with your gadget using Cellairis' election iPhone cases ($25), which come in 12 different styles catered to both sides of the aisle, and in two different sizes (iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5). Take a look at a few of our favorites, and let us know which case (or candidate) you'd elect to safeguard your smartphone.
We're admittedly a little disappointed that these geometric prints from Etsy shop blackbirdandtheowl aren't available as fabulous fashions; but founder Peggy Wolf's soft suede and leather cases will, however, fit an 11-inch Macbook Air ($98), and iPhone 4/4S ($28).
Peggy crafts the textiles for her beautiful minimalist cases using the time-honored technique of screen printing. These cozy one-of-a-kind pouches, which are handmade and handprinted, are a perfect layer for your gadgets — just in time for Fall.

Gaming pioneer Atari turns 40 this year and, as icons do, rereleased its greatest hits in honor of the milestone birthday. In the 1970s, Atari was considered an innovator in video gaming technology, and even convinced a young Steve Jobs to work for it in 1974. Stroll down gaming memory lane with free.
The catch? Ads, and lots of them. But since the company built the site in partnership with Microsoft, nostalgic gamers who download Internet Explorer can then experience all the glory of Atari ad-free.

Since we've already taken Lumatic City Maps, Bing, and MapQuest out for a test-drive, we were in the market for something a little different — and Waze certainly sets itself apart. The bright, bubbly user interface is a refreshing take on the typically humorless disposition of navigation apps, and the lively online community makes Waze's maps more informed in real-time than any other map we've tried. Here are eight reasons why we think drivers will be "wazing" poetic about this map app alternative.
