I found GelaSkins at CES. They are awesome!! The guys working the booth were very enthusiastic about their artist designed skins. They are perfect for personalizing your iPhone (or most every electronic device). The skins are easy to apply and remove without any damage to your iPhone. It adds grip without bulk. You can download a matching wallpaper through their free app.
Don't like one of their 100's of artist's designs? Make your own, I did. It's ME paragliding over the Swiss Alps. (Yes, soccer moms can be cool!!!)
Price point for iPhone is $14.95 each. Buy 3 get 1 free.
From the GelaSkins Website:

Forget cloud-computing, configure your own. If you need secure access to your files (from anywhere in the world), you might want to check out the myDitto solution From Dane-Elec. There's an iPhone app for it as well, and I'll get to the details of that in a minute, but essentially it's a storage unit (above left) that provides secure access to your files, and all you need is an iPhone (with the myDitto app), or a USB key (from a computer).
I need to take off my iPhonelife hat for a minute to talk about this vendor's products. In my other life, I build and design computer systems, some of which are deployed to hostile locations (I have on occasion had to deploy along with them). Pelican is a name I have trusted for a long time to protect sensitive computer equipment, and so I was pleased to learn they have an iPod/iPhone line of cases.
Pioneer has a multitude of fabulous car stereo systems here at CES this year (North Hall, booth 1001). I was given demos of two of the more impressive models that have iPod/iPhone integration. The first is a new Stage 3 product destined for release in early spring this year (the AVIC-X920BT). This system has everything but the kitchen sink, including DVD/CD playback, voice control, navigation and a hoard of smart music features, including it's own iPhone/iTunes app.
As always, common sense rules; be sure to back-up your iPhone first!
Reallusion announces the debut of iPhone apps with 10x Camera Tools giving you the top 10 digital imaging tools to make your iPhone a true digital camera and photo manager. You'll need to search the AppStore for this software as iphone.reallusion.com is listed as "coming soon" when you go there.
Unless I make some sort of glaring error or omission, I don't make it a policy not to go back and update a review I've written. However, if something in a game changes to warrant a note or quick revisit, I'm more than happy to do that. Such is the case with Grinchmas! from Ocean Mediahouse. You can read the original review here. I'm still a bit disappointed that they haven't bolstered the less than wacky atmosphere, but there are a couple of game play changes worthy of noting. The first is that there are actually two modes now: Classic and Challenge. Classic is the original game, which now even has easy, medium and hard modes. Challenge mode is the bright spot of this update, however. In the Mean Grinch scenario there are 20 challenges and in Merry Grinch mode there are 17. A challenge might be basic like "quiet 3 near noisy houses" in Mean scenario or "deliver 3 presents" in Merry mode. As you get further down the list, however, things get more difficult. In Mean mode you might have something like "quiet 7 houses for 4 minutes and 30 seconds", and in Merry mode you get such things as "deliver a red, green and blue present in 10 seconds without missing". Each challenge has 3 difficulty levels as well.
Do you have a small business or side job where you take cash only? Do your customers ask if you take credit? Do they look disappointed when you don't?
This is an excellent find for all moms (or dads) that are small business owners:
- Hair dressers
- Craft fair booths
- PTA Presidents
- School fairs
- Car washer
- Girl/Boy Scout packs
- Farmer's Market
- Auto mechanic
- CES Booth (for 2 year subscriptions specials)
- Nail Salons
- Local Tour Guides
Those are just off the top of my head (and my husbands).

CES is chock full of iPhone accessory products, and I would like to promote some of the smaller vendors out here at the show. By the way, if you are attending CES, just about all the cool iPhone related stuff like this is located in the North Hall (including our own booth at 4642). It would take a while to post on each indivdual product, so I 'm going to have to lump them together. In this post, I'll talk about several iPhone accessory products (earbuds, cases, a solar charger, etc.) you might want to check out. I'll swing round later and review a few of them more fully. The first 2 are earbud headphones for your touch or iPhone. Read on for the details...
