Tech Squibs: Obeying the Seidio Obex Protects Your Phone


SQUIB: a : a short humorous or satiric writing or speech; b : a short news item. (Merriam-Webster)

This Tech Squib is a little bit like those stores that jump the gun on Christmas decorations because we're talking about winter much too soon.

Still, since the Seidio Obex is building its reputation on its ability to resist water, snow and assorted circuitry frying invasions. In fact, the Obex meets IB68 ratings. I thought that was the designation of a bounty hunter in The Empire Strikes Back, so I have no idea what that means beyond guaranteeing the Obex is certified dust proof and consistently resistant to continued submersion.

This protection for your Samsung S4 or iPhone 5 comes with an $80 price tag, but that money brings you the right to dunk your smartphone in snow just because you can.
