Do I even need to tell you about dbrand? In case you’ve been off YouTube and living under a rock for the past five years, dbrand is the sarcastic, Toronto-based manufacturer of high-quality skins for a wide array of devices. More recently, they’ve started producing cases and screen protectors as well, namely for Apple, Samsung, Google, and OnePlus flagships. In a rare consumer-friendly move, dbrand is holding a 20% off site-wide sale. What are they celebrating? We’re not entirely sure, but we’ll take it over the more aggressive approach they normally take (see below). Read More

Judging by the number of views on every AP article about Mario or Pokemon, it's easy to tell that there are a TON of Nintendo fans amongst AP's readership. It's also a safe bet that a lot of you own a Nintendo Switch.
One of the best things about the Switch is that it's the first truly go-anywhere console. You can toss it in your backpack, gym bag, or even your sweatpants pocket and take it with you wherever you go. The only downside is that beyond the safe confines of your home, there are lots of things that can scratch up the finish of your beautiful device. Read More
People tend to think that vinyl skins for their slippery smartphones will greatly increase grip, but that's just not true. Sure, a skin will protect your $700 piece of glass and metal from fingerprints and scratches, and it might make it a teensy bit grippier, but you'd still be much better off by adding a bit of bulk and going with a case if you want real control over your phone.
However, dbrand is claiming that its new 'Black Dragon' (amazing name, by the way) skin is made of the grippiest material that it's ever made available. That's a big statement to make, but given the robot-run company's track record of bluntness on social media and the like, I'm inclined to believe it. Read More

Now, after a not insignificant amount of teasing, it's taken the wraps off of Marble, alongside a 30% discount. Read More
