Indestructible, full-body protection for mobile phones you don’t even know is there!

Brisbane, Australia: Wednesday 29 September 2010:
We all know that you can protect your mobile phone with a screen protector and a case. What is not so well known is that a mobile phone can be completely covered, from the corners to the screen, with an almost invisible scratch-resistant film called “BodyGuardz”.

BodyGuardz are scratch-proof transparent clear protective skins custom designed to suit iPod, iPhone, mobile phones, GPS devices and other electronic gadgets. Backed with a lifetime warranty, the product is manufactured from the same material that is designed to protect luxury cars from stone chips. To illustrate how tough the material is, BodyGuardz have released a demonstration on YouTube whereby a phone protected with BodyGuardz is put through a series of tests – from nails to an electrical sander! While an extreme message to show how tough the material, it really does demonstrate just how indestructible this product is.

The latest product to join the BodyGuardz line-up is “Dry Apply”, applied as it suggests – liquid-free! In the past consumers hesitated at applying film to their device that required adhesion using a liquid substance. BodyGuardz have now eliminated that concern with this product and it is set to be a huge success.

Paul Mapp, Managing Director of Dynamic Red, importer of BodyGuardz into Australia, said Dry Apply is just the product the Australian market is looking for. “Most people like the original look of the phone they purchase and reluctantly put a case on their phone to protect it. BodyGuardz is a fantastic solution to protect your phone from scratches without taking away from the look or functionality of the device. The material is optically clear and incredibly thin. You can enjoy the beautiful design of your device without the added bulk of cases.”

“Consumers can have confidence in their decision to choose BodyGuardz as protection for their phone. Previously BodyGuardz won the ‘iLounge iPhone and iPod Product of the Year’, and more recently were named by ZDNet as ‘Mobile Accessory of the Year 2009’. This is quite an achievement considering these titles are contended by 1,000’s of mobile accessory products.”

For iPhone 4 users, BodyGuardz covers the phone’s external antenna, eliminating the much talked about antenna issues, resolved by Apple through providing or advising their loyal users to cover their iPhone 4 with a case – perhaps not what the user had in mind.

But now there is a choice; put a bulky case on your phone or get a full body BodyGuardz which will retain the original look of your device and totally protect it from scratches. And the best part? Now available in a ‘Dry Apply’ form, BodyGuardz no longer requires a liquid solution to be applied. We think it’s a no-brainer!

BodyGuardz products are currently available through a number of retail outlets.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
