President Obama gave selfie sticks the White House seal of approval last week. This will naturally increase the already vast numbers of people who walk down the street and film themselves while holding a big metal pole. Is there anywhere a selfie stick shouldn't go? Other than the Smithsonian Museum and a host of other public attractions, that is. Might I suggest they shouldn't be held by drivers as they roll along the road? This comes to mind only because of a video posted to Facebook by Jeep Experience Poland. (A longer version has emerged onto YouTube.).

That said, Speck has come out and announced that all its old iPhone 6 cases will fit the new 6S (and vice versa). Also, its old iPhone 6 Plus cases will fit the new iPhone 6S Plus. I suspect that most "old" cases that aren't totally rigid should work with the new iPhones. However, we'll have to wait and see what the deal is with super tight fitting cases like those from Lifeproof that are designed to be waterproof. Today, Speck also unveiled the CandyShell Clear, its "first completely clear case and the world's first military-grade protective clear case."Speck says the CandyShell Clear is made with next-generation rubber that resists yellowing over time and is "perfect for showing off the new rose gold iPhone." It costs $35 for the 6/6S version and $40 for the 6 Plus/6S Plus version.
