zombie cats are coming

The zombie uprising is here and it is infecting cats

Most of us believed that when the zombie uprising happened it would infect humans and bring about the end of the world, as we know it. However, why does it have to infect the human race? What would the world be like if the zombie uprising hit the cat population of the world? Yes, this is Cat Zombies and luckily for us, it is a game, we hope! The game will become available for iOS powered devices once its released later on in the year, but this is a game that is ideal for humans too so long as you make sure that the cat is not looking over shoulder. The game begins with a rage disease attacking cats and turning them into zombies, but not all cats are infected and this is where you come in, it is your job to play an uninfected cat and defend the city from the zombie cats.

The good news is that as a cat you have nine lives. The game play consists of swatting the cat zombies as they appear on the screen and because it is that easy you and your cat can play, once you reach a cool enough level you can even share your score on Facebook. Just remember though, someone’s cat is going to have a higher score than you do! We are expecting the cat zombie outbreak to happen later on in the year, pre order yours before it is too late.

There is nothing worse than seeing an expensive piece of kit being covered by a cheap plastic case, it’s not a good look and you have to wonder about how much protection you are getting, after all something made so cheaply is not going to offer a great deal of protection at all.

However, here is a simple yet and effective way of protecting the iPad, they are called iCorners, they are made from transparent polycarbonate and as you can imagine these fit just onto each corner of the device, yet can offer full protection from damage that can happen by accident.

The interesting thing about these iCorners is that they might small, but they are able to offer protection from scratches to the screen and body from placing the device onto a table. These corners will also protect the device from being damaged by a drop; it is annoying how a simple drop from not much height can cause serious damage to the body and screen.

The iCorners are not available yet, but they can be pre ordered at around $20, which is nothing when you compare to the cost of replacing a screen or any other part of body.

The Tripac case has been designed to protect the iPad where it is most vulnerable around the edges and corners, which is something that many cases miss. Considering that the Tripac is only 7 mm thick, it is surprising that it offers enough power in the spare battery to run the iPad all day long.

The Tripac comes in Black as standard, but will also be available in blue, green and red. The built in 13000 mAh battery requires a one hour charge and will provide the iPad with up to twenty seven hours of power, while through the USB port a Smartphone could be charged fully up to eight times.

The Tripac iPad Case With Built In Battery Pack!

The retail price of the Tripac is going to be around $130 or £81, but it can be pre-ordered for a short time from around $99 or £62, which represents a significant saving.
