All that glitters… is glitter!

These days, you can make as much of a fashion statement with your iPhone as you can with your clothes and accessories.

Let me answer your first question before you even ask it and tell you that these are actually double layer cases, so you’ve got one layer between your iPhone 7 and the liquid glitter. I’m digging the unicorn pastels myself, but they’ve got a few other color choices to pick from. Related:...

Tile Mate keeps track of your keys, so you don’t have to. Whoo!

We have been longtime fans of the Tile smart tracker, because we’re fans anything that helps keep track of stuff we’ve misplaced. Well, they just launched Tile Mate, which features a handy little hole, making it perfect for keychains, loveys, backpacks, and more.

And unlike the original Tile, this version lets you customize...
