    iPhone 5 and iOS 6: Outdated or Classic?

    Apple's iOS for the iPhone is a classic. Since its debut in 2007, it's not only set the industry standard for all other mobile operating systems, but it's barely changed when it comes to the user interface and design. While some would argue that iOS 6 for the iPhone 5 is so good that major changes just aren't necessary, other Apple fans are calling for a redesign that keeps pace with Apple's competitors.

    The iPhone 5 and iOS 6 Dilemma

    Should you make a good thing better, or avoid messing with a classic? That's the question Apple will have to answer when it comes to launching a fresh version of iOS. Many argue that the design of Apple's iOS needs a facelift, especially in light of the new upgrades to Windows, Android, and Blackberry operating systems.
    Are the turtles catching up to the hare? Or is Apple prepared to up the ante once again with a new iOS? Rumor has it—according to and other reputable sources—that

  2. 19th Century Romantic

    19th Century Romantic

    As a small business owner I am constantly adapting to market shifts and technology advancements.  For a nineteenth century romantic, this can be daunting.  But, I do peruse the tech blogs and fight the zombie stare when Mr. PQ is explaining things to me, just managing to cling to the tail of a rapidly advancing society.  I love  iPad mini, and my iPhone 5, even more as it’s encased in a PQ Little Pocket Book.  That being said, I use a sand timer for my tea, hike with a compass and generally run gadget free.  There is value in remembering life before technology, in most cases.



    Earlier this week a parcel arrived from our new merchant service provider.  As I extracted the contents I showcased each new item for Will and Karl (Operations and Customer Service)  A new iOS credit card scanner, (“sweet”, Will and

    How to protect your iPhone from damage, loss, and theft

    If you're anxious about scratching up your new iPhone 5, you're not alone. Most smartphone owners with a new phone are worried about scratches, spills, cracked screens, and theft. The cost of buying or replacing a smartphone is enough to keep you up at night. But by taking a few extra steps to protect your phone, you can let yourself relax a little.
    Here are a few tips for protecting your new iPhone:

    1. Install a security app.

    One of the first steps you should take when you get your new iPhone 5 is to install an app that allows you to find your phone in case you lose it, lock the device remotely, and wipe the device clean in case of theft. It only takes a few minutes, but you'll be glad you did it.

    2. Use an iPhone case to prevent accidental damage.

    For added protection, use a full case that protects the screen as well as the body. A well-made iPhone case will last longer than your smartphone

  4. The Contega Begs for an App

    The Contega Begs for an App

    The idea for an iPad and iPhone App occurred to me back in early 2010 when we first began the Pad and Quill case company.  The fact that your iPad was surrounded by a gorgeous hand made case, like the Octavo or Contega, seemed to beg for a note taking App of equal beauty.  Time flew by, as making cases and building our little company out of the basement then replaced said App dreams.  Until about 5 months ago, when we were introduced to Fabulously Retro and Daniel the lead App developer.  Daniel and I both shared a passion for moleskine notebooks, iPads and awesome leather cases.  A business marriage made in heaven.


    We are excited to provide you a sneak preview of the forthcoming Pad
