Like many people, I use my iPhone as my alarm clock. The other day, the alarm went off quite sharply, and I grabbed my phone to turn it off. Problem was, the charging cable caught on my nightstand, and my iPhone 5 took a tumble onto the tile floor, marring the corner nicely. Oy.

Understandably, I was pretty upset. After all, I’ve used cases on all of my iPhones up until the iPhone 5, and I don’t know why I changed my mind. Was I lazy? Did I just keep putting it off? Did I want to show off the iPhone 5 goodness? Whatever it was, I now have a scratched and marred iPhone to show for it.

What about you? Do you buy and use a case for your iPhone or do you just let it sit about naked as a jaybird? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Our weekly sponsor this week is MovieShare, the easiest way to share movies between your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.

Ever shoot a movie on your iPhone and then want to send it to your iPad? Maybe your Mac? You’d think that there was some way to do it with Photo Stream or iCloud, but there isn’t. The only way you can move your movies from one device to another is to either send it via email, iMessage or just put it up to YouTube, and none of those options are really that awesome. What if there was an easier way?

You know there is,that’s why we’re here to talk about MovieShare, right? So here’s the skinny. Take any video on your iPhone, then put it into MovieShare, which is as easy as tapping the screen a few times. Download and install MovieShare on your Mac or iPad, and you can then send your flicks to whatever machine you like, the only requirement is that you need to have all of the devices on the same Wi-Fi network. Move from your Mac to iPhone, then to the iPad, then to and iPod touch — it doesn’t matter what iOS device it is, the process is just a few taps away.

I personally tried this out on my iPad, Mac and iPhone, using a few home movies that I had taken of my son. Of course, sending them back and forth between each machine was really quick and easy to do. The entire process took just a few minutes, and now my movies are on my Mac where I want them, no muss, no fuss.

Go Get It!

Want to make transferring movies between your devices super easy? Go get MovieShare right now — it’s free, so you’ve got no excuse not to. Unless you want to make moving your movies a difficult process, and who wants that, right?

The iPhone has been Microsoft Exchange friendly for a long time now, and it’s definitely made inroads into the business community. While some still rock the BlackBerry with a belt holster, businessmen and women around the world have adopted the iPhone as their main form of communication.

But the iPhone isn’t just for talking and handling email, it also does all sorts of other business tasks. Do you use your iPhone for business or is it just for pleasure? Let us know in the poll to the right!

You can go to the App Store today and buy hundreds of games for your iPhone. And although we’ve had a few console games make their way to our pockets (Sonic the Hedgehog and the Grand Theft Auto series come to mind), there are still some juggernauts that have yet to make their appearance. Our favorite Italian plumber comes to mind, but so do a lot of other characters from the Nintendo universe.

So how do you feel about console games and the iPad? Do you think we should have more of them, or do you like having your games be iOS exclusive? Let us know in the poll to the right!

I think we all can agree that iTunes isn’t exactly the easiest thing to use, particularly if you have a mammoth library. There are lots of different components to the system, and it can be a bit unwieldy.

But now we have iTunes 11, a new version of the software that claims to be the best ever. Is it? Or does iTunes still need a little bit of work? Let us know in the poll to the right!

We’ve heard your tweets, and we’ve got winners to announce. The winners of the promo codes for Can Knockdown 2 are:

All of the winners have been notified via Direct Message on Twitter. Thanks everyone for entering, and be on the lookout for more contests soon! (more…)
