If you’re familiar with the idox Traveler Series, then you may already know how it was created. Frustrated trying to watch a movie from his iPhone during a long flight, creator Vic Mahoney came up with the idox – making it easy for frequent fliers everywhere to watch movies more easily.
One such frequent flier is Gailen David, also known as “The Sky Steward.” As an airline travel expert, we were thrilled to send Gailen an idox Traveler Series case for his journeys. Apparently, he was equally as thrilled to receive it!
Recently, Gailen sat down with Today in South Florida, airing on NBC 6 in Miami, and shared the idox Traveler Series as one of his favorite things. You can see the clip here. Here are some great screen shots as well:
Next time you decide to fly the friendly skies – don’t forget your idox!

Stocking?! Yes, you read that right. While Christmas may still be a few months away, we’re already working with editors who are excited to tell their readers about the idox Traveler Series case this upcoming holiday season!
The idox Traveler cases may great gifts – and are the perfect size for a stocking. Check out some of the great coverage from last Christmas!
Love the iPhone and iPod Touch but scared that you’ll drop and crack the screen? Us, too. We protect ours with Idox 360. It works as a to-go case and the perfect flying companion.
The idox hard case is as brilliant as it is simplistic. When closed, it is a really sturdy hard case for your device, and when you open it, it turns into an angled viewing base. This is of course perfect for watching a movie, or using your iPhone as an alarm clock. It provides the kind of protection you need for your iPhone or iPod touch when you pop it in your bag.
PCMag.com also included the idox Traveler Series in its article, “Last Minute Tech Stocking Stuffers” but you don’t have to wait – you can get yours now! Doesn’t it feel good to plan ahead?

All the press today is about the new Apple iPhone 4. For those of us who are not taking the leap, just yet, and still use the iPhone 3G or 3GS—we still want a versatile case and stand to protect our phones.
And with the idox 360 Traveler Series hard case and stand, you can have that protection!
The idox Traveler Series is made of ABS grade plastic; tough and rigid enough to withstand drops and tumbles. When the case is closed, it protects the whole iPhone, including the screen, from scratches and dents.
The idox Traveler Series is especially great for traveling—just flip it open for an iPhone stand to hold your iPhone as a GPS system on roadtrips, or view videos and pictures during long flights.

We love our iPods too, but this editor REALLY loves his iPod Touch – to the point where he claims he would propose marriage if he could!
It’s a good thing he found the idox Traveler Series case. We don’t want to see how depressed he would be if anything bad ever happened to his Touch!
Check out what Michael at The Cleveland Scene as to say about the idox:
I love my iPod Touch. If I were allowed to marry it, I would. Seriously. But I hate looking at videos on it since my hand cramps after holding it a few minutes. This cool new gadget keeps your Touch, Nano or iPhone upright and stationary so you can watch Lord of the Rings without feeling like you spent three hours in hand-to-hand combat with Dark Lord Sauron.
If you love your iPod or iPhone as much as him – better get an idox Traveler Series case ASAP!

Who hasn’t watched “The Office?” The NBC mockumentary has become a must-watch show on big screen TVs and laptops throughout the country. It seems that everyone loves watching the exploits of characters like Michael, Dwight and Pam at their paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The immense popularity of the show inspired us to give you a few ways to turn your desk or office into one like the tv show! Using only your iPhone or iPod and your idox Traveler Series case and stand, you can bring “The Office’s” quirks right to your own desk.
The Office Quirk #1—Dwight’s Bobbleheads
Currently, Dwight has 4 bobbleheads on his desk in Scranton. You’re probably especially familiar with the bobblehead of himself featured in the opening credits. Now, using your idox Traveler series stand and the Bobblehead App, you can add your own, personalized bobbleheads to your desk!
The Office Quirk #2—Michael’s Union Jack Flag
Since the original tv series, The Office, was made in the UK, Manager Michael Scott has a Union Jack Flag on his desk. It’s a small way the show pays homage to the original series. Watch your very own Union Jack sway in the office breeze with Union Jack for iPhone. Set your flag in your idox Traveler Series case and place it on your desk to see how many co-workers will attempt a British accent.
The Office Quirk #3—Jim & Pam
The Office characters Jim and Pam are easily one of America’s favorite couples. Fans of the show followed their relationship from an office romance, to a wedding at Niagara Falls and then witnessed the birth of their first child. While the idox Traveler Series can’t turn you and a co-worker into the next Jim & Pam, ladies, it can hold your boyfriend for you. Create your own office romance with the Virtual Boyfriend app. Choose your own boyfriend, or turn your real one into an avatar, and prop him up on your desk to keep you company all day long.
There are a plethora of other apps based on “The Office,”— from quizzes to a “That’s What She Said” button. We’re just wondering if the folks at the Scranton Office would be interested in expanding from paper sales into, say, travel-friendly iPod and iPhone cases…

idox, LLC, distributes the idox Traveler Series internationally through our headquarters here in Madison, Wisconsin. The Travelers Series, a hard case and stand, is specially designed for using your iPod or iPhone while traveling.
Here’s how we got started:
idox founder Vic Mohoney, like any dad, grew tired of his kids dropping and breaking their iPods. With each new iPod purchase, he grew more and more frustrated as he stared at the retail wall of iPod cases. The cases did not protect the iPod or the iPod’s glass screen from breaking when dropped.
Then Vic noticed something else. While traveling on a long distance flight overseas, he grew tired of holding his iPhone while watching a movie. Looking around he noticed other travelers were also awkwarldy holding their iPhones and iPods while watch videos or listening to music.
He started to sketch an iPod case design on an airline napkin– a case that would both protect the iPhone and iPod for his kids and provide a stand to watch videos during flights.
From that napkin sketch, the idox Traveler Series was born.
Vic continued to design more and more case solutions. He started prototypes in his workshop—the first idox Traveler prototype was actually made of wood. As he refined his designs, he developed a portfolio of designs in plastic prototypes. Then, in the summer of 2009, the idox Traveler Series became a reality.
The patented idox Traveler Series, made of ABS grade plastic, has been on the market for a year now and has seen plenty of media coverage. From the cover of Skymall Magazine to a feature in Macworld—editors, reviewers and customers like what they see. You may have caught us in a few inflight publications, like Hemispheres and myMidwest. (Seen Below)
You, too, can become part of the idox crew. Head over to the idox store to buy your own idox Traveler Series case before your next flight. Currently the idox Traveler Series is available in platinum, black and pink for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, iPod touch (2nd or 3rd generation) or iPod nano (4th or 5th generation).

Apple iPhones and iPods are incredible. Anywhere you go today you can download and listen to music, videos and podcasts. Apple gives us the perfect way to enjoy and explore media while on-the-go. As a consequence, in-flight travel is so much more enjoyable.
But have you ever wished there was a way to watch that video or listen to that podcast in-flight without holding your device at an awkward and uncomfortable angle? Well now there is…
The Traveler Series from idox does the work for you.
Simply snap your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPod Nano into the idox Traveler hard case and—voila!—you can sit back and watch, completely hands-free! The Traveler Series was designed to keep your iPhone or iPod upright—making it easy to view videos, web content, photos, podcasts and more—all while keeping your hands free to take notes, page through a magazine or snack on those delicious in-flight peanuts.
It’s that simple!
With the idox Traveler Series once you’re done using your iPhone or IPod, just close the idox case and toss in it your bag or carry-on! It’s a simple device that will make life a little easier when using your iPod or iPhone while you travel.
Sound like something you can’t live, er… travel without? We thought so. The idox Traveler is compatible with the iPod Nano (4th and 5th generation), the 2nd generation iPod Touch and the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Did we mention that we offer FREE UPS Ground Shipping?
