Universal Uclick has had online access to many classic comic strips but now they’ve partnered with GoComics to create a free GoComics mobile app that gives readers access to its catalog of comic strips, comic panels and editorial cartoons. This free app will include comics like Peanuts, Bloom County, Doonesbury, Garfield and even Calvin and Hobbes.

Though this is the first place to legally read Calvin and Hobbes online, it is unclear whether or not Bill Watterson gave his blessing. As most fans know, Watterson has historically been steadfast objecting to commercialization of his work. On that note, The Far Side is notably absent due to Gary Larson’s continuing determination to avoid online publication of his work. He writes:

These cartoons are my “children,” of sorts, and like a parent, I’m concerned about where they go at night without telling me. And, seeing them at someone’s web site is like getting the call at 2:00 a.m. that goes, “Uh, Dad, you’re not going to like this much, but guess where I am.”

Well, whatever happens, the good news is the app is free and the catalog seems to be growing. Currently it offers users “20 years of back issues of comic strips,” with the ability to bookmark and share favorites. The bad news may be that I’ll be killing my iPhone battery daily.

Most people love the sleek design of the iPhone 5 and don’t want to ruin it with a bulky case, but this Iron Man case is too cool to care. It’s modelled after the Mark VII suit and even has a glowing, battery-powered arc reactor. There’s also a little chunk of armor that slides aside to reveal the camera lens. Preorder now and you’ll have the coolest case on the block come April.

Bubble wrap is good enough to protect your most precious items during shipping, so it’s the perfect protection for you iPhone. This case isn’t actual bubble wrap, because you know you’d just pop all the bubbles and make it useless. Instead it’s made of resilient silicone that’s sure to keep you phone safe and make every one try to grab it and pop the bubbles.

Look for it to arrive this Spring.

Those hidden blades everyone has up their sleeves in Assassin’s Creed seemed like such a good idea that Japanese inventor Shota Mori decided to apply the concept to his iPhone case. He’s been working on it for about two years to refine the process and iron out a few issues, like the iPhone shooting right out of his hand. You can see the whole thing in action in the video, which is full of dramatic poses, an iPhone flying out of control and a styrofoam head.

They’re available for the iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5 and have a built-in charging cable tucked away in a rear compartment. You can also contact them to custom design a tank dock for your iPhone or even for an iPad.
