How does one introduce an original web series like #Weirded? For one, it's not tech news -- at least, not in the way you're used to seeing. So scrub that notion from your brain. It's more like a constant channel change; like pressing the seek button on a car radio and catching tidbits of the nois...

Waiting on line in advance of an Apple product launch doesn't sound like the best way to spend a weekend, but unless you queued up, it's quite possible you're still bumming around with a perfectly good, but now last-generation iPhone. There's a glimmer of hope, however. The folks at Spigen have gi...
