It's finals week at UC Davis, and the campus is gearing up to help students who may find themselves in crisis mode with today's launch of a mobile-friendly Web site that directs them to the most appropriate resources on campus and beyond.

Does your iPhone case merely protect your iPhone? Bo-ring!
Why not spruce things up a bit with a case that combines protection with festive, blinky coolness? That's the idea behind this line of VanD flashing iPhone cases.
Available in a variety of styles for iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 5C, the LED Cover Flashing Clear Case offers a seemingly transparent protective shell for your handset.
Chances are you know that smartphones are little hubs of bacteria, carrying around germs, viruses and, in some cases, E. coli. I, for one, am a fan of just wiping down my phone with an alcohol swab to kill pathogens, but there's a new line of cases that promise to continuously combat germs without any extra effort.
The Tenerarca leather phone cases hail from Par'sk USA, and have a built-in line of defense against bacteria and electromagnetic radiation. According to the company, they carry a special coating called Upskin, a "proprietary antibacterial, sanitizing, and negative-ion-generating technology." … Read more
Smartphones owners often dress up their phones in order to reflect their individual personalities and sense of fashion. They might opt for pink rhinestones, faux alligator, or sedate leather.

Described as a tech fashion accessory, the necklace is essentially a case on a chain. The chain is removable and the design also contains a slim wallet for carrying some cash and cards.… Read more
With SplashCase for Mac you can create custom slideshows fairly easily. While not the most advanced slideshow app out there, it is a good choice for amateur photographers, as it has an easy-to-use interface and nice functionality. Be ready to invest in the paid version of the app, though.
SplashCase for Mac installs as a free trial version with a nasty limitation: a large, conspicuous watermark across your slideshow. Therefore, to use this app properly you have to upgrade to the paid license. Clicking on the "Create Slideshow Settings" button will launch the app's setup wizard that … Read more
Otterbox is by far the dominant force in iPhone cases, according to a new study, but Apple is starting to make inroads.
Otterbox, which makes a wide array of cases for mobile products, owns more than 50 percent of the iPhone 4S case market, according to new data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). And while the company is still holding the biggest share for individual firms in the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S market, Apple's cases are likely an increasingly worrisome presence for the case-maker.
According to CIRP, Apple's iPhone 5C cases account for nearly 10 percent … Read more
Apple has two Airs in its family, and they're both closer in spirit than ever before. The 2013 MacBook Air is less expensive than 2012's, and has a better battery life. The new iPad Air is smaller, lighter, and has a processor that's inching closer to the potential of a laptop.
Here's the funny thing: the iPad Air starts at $499, but fully loaded up to the highest configuration, it comes to a little under $1,000 ($929, to be specific). The 11-inch MacBook Air -- which is the most diminutive Apple laptop -- starts at $… Read more
If you want a colorful cover or case for your older iPad, you'll no longer get it through Apple.
Apple will continue to sell the polyurethane accessories, which run for $39 and $49 respectively, but only in a dark gray color.
