  1. Pink and Proud

    Pink and Proud

    I was not trying to be discriminatory, but pink was just not my first thought for an interior color for any of our products whether it be iPad cases or iPhone cases.  Well that was not how many of our customers see Pink, not to mention many members of our staff.  With exception of one person: Mrs. PQ.  She is not a pink player. If you really want to get on her tomboy nerves, you give her a pink running top or iPhone case.  I assure you, it's just not her thing.

     

    Regardless of Mrs. PQ's preferences, we all here at PQ came to the conclusion that introducing Pink right before Valentine’s Day seemed perfect.  You know who you pink people are and your significant others absolutely know who you are. The new Little Black Book with Pink interior looks awesome and will make that statement that you’re

  2. iPad 3 Rumor Round Up

    iPad 3 Rumor Round Up

    As you can imagine, here at PQ we are closely watching the iPad 3 rumor mills.  Beautiful hand made iPad cases being our specialty seems to make this quite the imperative.  Like you, we are very interested in what Apple plans to update with their newest version of the iPad.  From what we are reading, the iPad 3 will sport a new high resolution screen, better camera and the newest cellular technology LTE.  LTE is the next generation high speed cellular data standard.

     

    According to reports from Bloomberg and Macotakara (Japanese Blog) the iPad 3 will support a higher resolution screen that will make text appear like printed material, very similar to the current ‘Retina’ display in the iPhone 4 and 4S.  Bloomberg also cites 3 anonymous sources saying that the iPad 3 launch date will be early March with an announcement in early February by Apple.

  3. Macworld Here We Come

    Macworld Here We Come

    Mr. P&Q and I are busy readying ourselves for the upcoming Macworld convention in San Francisco.   For Mr. P&Q this has meant digging his running clothes out of storage, purchasing a pair of trail shoes and recalling how to set his alarm clock for O dark:30 workouts.  The Steep Ravine Trail Run was too much a temptation for Mrs. P&Q to pass by as a great way to tour the Golden Gate National Rec Area. So, with 7 miles of single track looming for the slightly sedentary Mr. P&Q, he has commenced with hitting the trails, both figuratively and literally.  Our early morning run started in the woods and concluded in the emergency room with a dislocated shoulder, stupid black ice.  The good news is that there is no ice on the famed Dipsea Trail, the bad news is that the big guy won’t be running much for the next several days.  For my part I’ve been preparing my palate with some great California
