Comparison and review of MacBook cases and brands

Of late, I have worked on the development of AppleOnly.in, a website that sells cases, sleeves, covers, bags, etc for Apple MacBook Air/Pro, iPhone, etc. Because of that, people started to ask questions about cases and their reviews. I'll try to summarize my answers here:

i-Blason Vs iBenzer -- what is the premium brand and why?


  • Both i-Blason and iBenzer are from the USA. Hence, both are priced around Rs.3,000/- to Rs.8,000/- 
  • i-Blason is relatively an established brand (and so, they're popular in social media)
  • iBenzer is relatively new compared to i-Blason. But, cost wise and quality wise, iBenzer is much superior to i-Blason. For example, Hexpact by iBenzer is an award winning design at the CES
  • At AppleOnly.in, we have not received a single return and complaints for iBenzer. But, many times, we have received complaints and returns from customers for i-Blason.

What MacBook Pro/Air case would you recommend and why?

I would personally recommend iBenzer cases without any doubt.

Hexpact series would be best bet in case if you're expecting complete 'fall proof' aka drop resistant. You can even experiment it. It is really super solid. Unfortunately, it is difficult to explain; in layman terms it can be comparable with silicon rugged cases..

Neon party series would be better if you prefer to show off your Apple laptop in events and meetings. I would also suggest complementing it with Slickwraps skins. Not to mention that Slickwraps is also from the USA; but their packaging is not that premium when compared to their quality and price.

iBenzer sleeves Vs Amazon basics laptop sleeves -- what is better and why?

iBenzer 'Neoprene' Protective Laptop Sleeve
Obviously, iBenzer. Amazon basics are 'basic' laptop sleeves. But, premium MacBook Air/Pro would deserve iBenzer. Also, it is very difficult to explain the quality difference here. But, if you feel it, you'd definitely appreciate iBenzer. Please also refer to this YouTube video for its quality (if that helps).

AppleOnly.in Vs Amazon India -- what should I use and why?

AppleOnly.in is authorized reseller and genuine importer of these premium brands and focused on premium customers of Apple products and the like. It provides all best services of Amazon like free shipping, easy returns, replacements, etc.

More importantly, many products in AppleOnly.in are sold for much lesser than Amazon.in. Reason is that, Amazon India charges hefty fees from sellers for these laptop accessories categories; but in AppleOnly.in, these fees are not there and so products are much cheaper and with friendly customer support. (You can test the customer support, if you want!)

Why is that imported Mac gears are costly in India?

First reason is that these premium brands are from the USA; not from China. Another reason is that we have to pay hefty shipping fees and custom duty. However, in AppleOnly.in, all products are competitively priced as they’re sourced in bulk unlike other retailers. So, best prices are definitely guaranteed here.

Sometime ago I had lot of interest in contributing to the www.php.net online manual's notes. Thought lot of them are deleted now and not even relevant now, I'd thought of archiving them for my own reference:

If you want to create PDF without using PDFlib library, you may try FPDF ( http://www.fpdf.org ).

If you want to know, how to use FPDF in PHP scripts, you can look at the source code of phpMyAdmin as phyMyAdmin uses this FPDF. ( http://www.phpmyadmin.net )

If you want to remove a particular element from the array without loosing the keys, you can use the following function:


function RemoveArrayElement($arr, $element)
{
if (($key=array_search($element, $arr))!==false)
unset($arr[$key]);
return( $arr );

}/*---------RemoveArrayElement()----------*/



Example:


$arr = array("a","b","c","f","x","d&quo…

"A to Z of C" book turns 5

A to Z of C, the DOS/Turbo C programming book written by K. Joseph Wesley and myself turned 5 on August 1.

Initially, we felt bad for spending our time in writing a book that were rejected and deceived by publishers. Now we get quite reasonable appreciations from people around the world--even though it's having technical and grammatical errors. Long live the internet publishing!

Probably a time for "A to Z of PHP" ?
