Speck's TimetoRock is available now in a variety of colors for $25.
All CandyShell cases feature a rubbery interior lining for shock resistance and a thin, hard exterior for smooth grip and easy accessibility.
Coming in four stylized patterns — dark and light Tartan, Cookie Camo brown, and Spexy Hexy purple — you can rock these any time of year and still look on trend. Since the cases are of the hard shell variety, you get an extra layer of protection along with Speck's signature soft-touch finish. The cases will hit the virtual shelves this October for $70, which is still soon enough to make a statement when you head back to school!
We're all familiar with the Speck Artsprojekt iPhone cases, right? Good. Now, if you're searching for a funky case for your iPhone 4, look no further than Best Buy.Coming in short supply, these limited edition Speck Artsprojekt iPhone 4 cases ($40) will be appearing at select Best Buy stores in Illinois, Florida, and Texas, and come with a collectors card insert that tells you about the artist. The cases will come with an artist-designed cloth back plate, and a hard shell to protect your device. I'm particularly fond of the Tron-like one here (which also kind of reminds me of Tokyo) called "Night City," but find all of the cases to come with tons of personality! Check 'em all out below!
Only 250 of each design is created, so if you see one you like, snatch it up!

When it comes to my Kindle case, I have a strong preference toward book-style cases, and most of you agreed with me. So when a box of cases from Speck arrived at Sugar HQ, I jumped at the chance to test out the DustJacket. My initial thoughts: it's a little bit bulky for the slim Kindle — I was expecting it to be more Moleskine thick, not novel thick
— and it's a little heavier than I expected. But it's super padded, and the Kindle snaps easily into plastic holders that keep it in place. Plus, the sleep/wake button and charging port are easily accessible.
After carrying the DustJacket around for a few days, I'm pleasantly surprised! Turns out, it's not too heavy (as I initially feared), and provides enough protection for my Kindle that I'm not worried about bruises and scrapes from quickly tossing it into my bag. It also has a picture frame-like stand to prop your Kindle for easy reading. I have to admit, I haven't used this feature (except to display the Kindle's screen saver for my co-worker), but it works nicely, if a little lopsided. Overall, I'd definitely recommend the Speck DustJacket to protect your Kindle, and at $35 it's on par with many of Amazon's cases.
Deep red in color with heavily marbled traces of fat, speck is served thinly sliced as an appetizer, or is used to flavor cooked dishes. For a less traditional application, try it in a salad with apples and arugula.
Note that speck from Alto Adige or Tyrol, which enjoys a protected designation of origin, should not be confused with the German usage of the word, which refers to lard.

I just got my hands on Specks new lineup of cell phone cases and they're not only affordable and will keep your phone scratch free, but they are totally trendy too! Below you'll notice the BlackBerry Pearl Hard Shell Case ($25) that comes with a removable swivel holster and belt clip and protects your phone while maintaining its sleek design. Then there's the Hard Shell Case and Stand ($30) that comes in two pieces that snap together to protect your iPhone 3G and includes rubberized no-slip finger rails on the sides.
And last but not least (and one of my faves), the Pixel Skin ($25) for the iPhone 3G that allows you to access all your controls and ports, and it comes in seven hot colors!
