Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case Unboxing & Review

With this case I expand my Mous.co collection.  This time with the Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case.

If you are a follower of this blog you will know that this is not my first mous.co case.  You will also know that I am a fan of their gear.  If you don’t you can read my review of the carbon fibre case and a few of the accessories here :

Mous iPhone X Accessories Unboxing and Review

Disclosure : I purchased this Mous Limitless iPhone X Leather Case direct from Mous.co the review is my own as are my thoughts on the product.

Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case

Rather than just regurgitate what I have already written about the Mous.co Carbon Fibre case please take a few moments and have a quick read of it.

The first comment I made in that review was about a missed shipping date and how this is only to be expected with cloud funding – glitches happen etc etc.  That point is no longer relevant.  We are now no longer in the cloud funding world, we are now buying off a well established business.  Shipping time was a couple of days and as you would now expect I had the case within the week.  

Things continue in this positive direction…

Apple iPhone Xs / XR Wallpapers

With the arrival of iOS12 just mere hours away and the first deliveries of the iPhone Xs series less than a week away you could well be one of the lucky ones upgrading to the latest iDevice.

If, like me, you may not be planning to upgrade on this cycle – you may well like the idea of a facelift for your current phone and no better way to do that than the latest wallpaper.

Apple are renowned for their gorgeous wallpapers and this refresh is no different.  The wallpapers for the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are beautiful.  There is some dispute as to what the wallpapers actually depict, some claim they represent planetary surfaces, others that they are bubbles – the patterns coming from an oil type effect on the surface of said bubbles.  The latter being the theory that I am going for.

But it doesn’t stop there.  Of course the latest flagship iPhone is causing a lot of buzz on the tech front but what seems to be causing even more at the moment is the newly announced iPhone XR – the more modestly priced, LCD screened, single camera’d, and multi coloured iPhone XR.  With it comes a whole range of wallpapers each designed around the base colour of an iPhone XR.  These follow the same bubble theme and come with a single or double bubble variant.

So without further ado read on to see all the wallpapers that will be coming with the new range of iPhones and download your favourite.  All the images are full resolution so will work beautifully on whatever phone you currently use – your facelift awaits…

2018 Mrs Brown’s Boys East Coast Racing Festival Results : Sunday 9th September 2018

2018 Mrs Brown’s Boys East Coast Racing Festival Results :

Sunday 9th August 2018 – the final race day for the Irish National Road Racing Calendar and it took us to Killalane for the 2018 East Coast Racing Festival sponsored by – strangely enough – Mrs Brown’s Boys.  Fair play though Brown’s seemed to get right into the spirit of things coming up with a funky wee logo and and even more funky bus…

It also say the return to the roads of Derek McGee who just one month ago was knocked out of action at the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod…

If we remove that slight hiccup from the equation the result is Derek McGee taking 15 wins from 15 races – a phenomenal achievement and one well worthy of a round of applause – !applause!

It didn’t come easy though as throughout the final Derek Shiels was snapping at his heels on the Cookstown Burrows Engineering bike taking second place by a mere 0.185s!  The third place podium went to Michael Sweeney, Paul Jordan taking fourth.

2018 Classic TT Results

2018 Classic TT Results
Sharing the Festival of Motorsport with the Manx Grand Prix means you share the good and the bad.  The good being the obvious – 2 glorious weeks of Motorcycle Racing, this year the bad was the weather.  Fog and rain plagued the early stages of the event with practices being severely limited.

The sessions did get run.  Extra road closures were put in place to maximise the competitors’ time on the circuit and as usual the organisers, Marshals, Medical Staff… all had to step up in difficult circumstances.  They all did and as you can see from the results and timings below we got some excellent racing.  

John McGuinness made his debut back in competitive racing (following his 2017 North West 200 crash) showing that without doubt he has still got it – taking the win in the Senior Classic on the Paton and also taking the fastest lap at an average speed of 110.676 mph.

Dean Harrison continued with the form he had from earlier this year in the Isle of Man at the TT Races taking the Superbike win with a fastest lap of 126.041 mph.
