As a nation we’ve collectively whined about the London 2012 Olympics now for what feels like decades, but whether you’re still throwing a tantrum about the fact you couldn’t get tickets or have a mild anxiety attack every time TFL sends you one of those handy (read really goddam annoying) update emails, they’re happening.
There’s nothing you or I can do to stop them now. So let’s embrace the Olympics the only way we know how, with cool apps, useful gadgets and a tonne of cheesy accessories we’re sure you’ll never use again.
Everyday at 3pm (OK, more like 3.30pm) we’ll be bringing you our top three Olympic-themed gadgets, apps and other techy tat from the day, which we’ve called the Shiny Shiny triathalon (GEDDIT?). Ready… Set… Sorry.
Griffin Nation Cases
One of our favourite case brands, Griffin, has brought out a range of new accessories for the Olympics called The Nations Cases. To celebrate the games and the fact Griffin now as a store at Westfield, Stratford City (how very fancy), the cases feature the abbreviated names and flags of a number of countries from around the globe. They don't just look all bright and patriotic either, they've got a super durable hard shell and they're slim-fitting too. Available from Griffin for £14.99.
