Charging and syncing can be done without having to remove your iPhone from the Pack, and there’s a status indicator on the bottom of the Pack telling you how much juice is left and what the charging status is.If you’re concerned about how much bigger this will make your iPhone 4, and how much heavier, it’s not that bad.

first_imgLast month India’s Supreme Court ruled that same sex intimate relationships are no longer deemed a criminal offence and that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a fundamental violation of rights.Until now India, with this 157-year old law, was one of more than 70 countries where homosexuality is criminalised. The new legislation however did not extend to legalising same-sex marriage.Mark Snowell, Product and Marketing Director of new specialist travel company Out in India said, “For a number of reasons, many LGBT travellers boycott countries where being gay is illegal, so now we can expect the interest to grow quickly.”Officially opened this month, Out In India will focus on bringing LGBT travellers products and experiences that connect them more effectively with the local communities as well as encouraging LGBT locals to come out and be active in the Indian tourism industry and reinvesting in this growth.Out in India is currently identifying locals who are interested in participating in openly providing their services to the inbound LGBT market, with priority being guides, home stays, chefs and artists.“It’s taken the change in law to enable us to start being truly proactive,” said Snoxell.“It’s not a case of simply putting up a rainbow flag and being able to blare Kylie in their chauffeur driven car! There are many companies promoting ‘Gay & Lesbian Tours’ in India that really don’t understand the complexities of this growing sector and are in danger of damaging their brand integrity if they are not being authentic.”Same sex couples interested in marrying in India are advised that travel companies and wedding planners promoting gay weddings across the country are only able to able to facilitate commitment ceremonies and not legally-recognised marriages.  “It’s only early days with a lot of hard work ahead, though we are very excited with what we already have in the pipeline and looking forward to bringing these to market soon”For more information on Out in India, please contact [email protected] gay and lesbian tourismindiaIndian Tourismlesbian gay bisexual and transgender marketOut in IndiaSame sex tourismlast_img read more
