The Holy Grail screen protector can defend against key scratches, scissor stabs and five-foot drops, but do not use it to stop a bullet. The accessory, created by Seattle company Sir Lancelot's Armor , went on sale this week. The company boasts that the Holy Grail, made from "bulletproof" laminated tempered glass, is the perfect defense for tablet and smartphone users looking for protection for their device without giving up style points by purchasing a bulky case. The Holy Grail is available for numerous top-flight devices, ranging from Apple's latest iPhone and iPads to Samsung's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note smartphones.

All the world may once have been a stage, but it is certainly now a screen. In her solo gallery debut at Charlie James, L.A. artist Valerie Green gives us a smartphone eye's view of the sublime: the sky above our heads. The nine images in the series “Look Up” were taken through the moon roof of the artist's car, adorned with the phone's screen protector, a slip of plastic that would be transparent were it not for the marks and scratches of restless fingers. The skies range from gray and rain-spotted to blissfully blue, but the screen protector creates a ghostly image of the phone itself, something like a self-portrait.

Oh, that a smartphone was smart enough to remain handy but not cumbersome. The ArmPocket has your back - well, actually your arm - and this cellphone armband has welcome features missing from some similar products. Whatever your phone brand or size, whether in a case (even a large case) or not, there's an ArmPocket model that should work. Your phone slides into the front of a padded transparent touch-control window inside a larger zippered compartment. No need to worry about a screen protector out in the elements; the pocket is water resistant.

When I curled up with a guilty-pleasure book on my first Kindle, I would always wake up with my face resting on the screen, which was streaked with the drool that can accompany sleep. And, because I had been reading before drifting off, the bedroom lights stayed on all night. That was when I was single. But that just won't do when someone else shares the bedroom with you. Barnes and Noble claims its Nook Simple Touch e-reader with "GlowLight" is "better in bed" than Amazon's Kindle.
