Now here's a great idea that you won't want to be without. Forget the big old clunky stands for your digital devices. This diminutive little holder will surprise you with its versatility.
First of all it worked on every device a tried with it, including iPhone, iPod, iPad, tablet, Motorola Atrix, and Kindle Fire. It measures only one inch by two inches and is about 3/8 inch high.
It has an adhesive backing that you can use to stick the holder to almost any surface or to the back of your digital device. Fortunately, the stickum is renewable. All you have to do is clean it with plain water, dry it off, and it's good as new.
If you are a bike rider, listen up. If you know a bike rider, listen up. If you are thinking about becoming a bike rider, listen up.
This comes under the category of, "It's about time." I'm sure we've all said to ourselves, why didn't I think of that, it's so obvious. Well, here's one of those for you.
What I'm talking about is a bicycle head lamp that lights up the sky and your pathway with a generator and current created by the turning of the front wheel, which is energy just going to waste. Why not harness it?
Here's one you're just going to love. When it arrived via Fedex, it was the only thing in the box. It took me a moment to figure out exactly what it was and how it worked. But when I did decode it, I loved it and appreciated its functionality and simplicity. I wondered why no one had ever thought of it before.
The label on it says "Toddy". I always thought a toddy was a hot alcoholic beverage, not this toddy, but it's definitely hot.
Basically what we're talking about is a colorful cloth wedge that measures four by five inches with a height of about 3 1/4 inches. To view it, go to www.toddygear.com.

I received two pairs of Wicked Audio ear buds to review. Why a company with so many choices of ear appliances would want to produce two new models is a mystery. Obviously they must be an improvement over existing models.
Frankly, I don't see how the listening experience could be much better than what the Wicked Deuce and Mojo ear buds produce for your listening pleasure.
A warning comes on the package about using excessive volume. Without thinking I turned a little Mozart on my iPod and plugged in the buds. I thought my head would explode, and the volume was only cranked up half way. Listener beware. These things are powerful indeed.
Listen up Road Warriors. You need this handy, portable scanner. Once you have one, you won't leave home without it.
The IrisScan Book 2 scanner is compact measuring 10 inches in length and an inch high and wide. It weighs a mere seven ounces. So it won't cause any clutter in your travel bag.
There is a simple, initial, one-time, setup procedure. First, install the two AAA batteries that come with it. And then insert the 2 GB micro SD card that also comes with it. Power it up by holding down the Scan button for two seconds. Insert a paperclip into the format button hole. Formatting only takes a couple of seconds, and you're ready to roll.
If you want a really classy Bluetooth speaker system to enhance your environment, you will want to check out the Edifier E3350BT system. Its absolutely stunning design will catch your eye. Its high quality output will capture your attention too.
The curved pyramid shaped subwoofer is flanked by two smaller speakers about a foot high. As the Bluetooth in the name implies, it offers a wireless connection to a remote music device such as an iPod or MP3 player, but works equally well with tablets, desktops, and iPads.
If you device is not equipped with Bluetooth, the Edifier comes with a double male 3.5 mm jack cable to hook up just about any device. When connected by cable, the power button glows red. When connected by Bluetooth, it glows blue.
They come in pairs, look like a new form of Japanese Ninja throwing knife. In fact, if the edges were sharpened, they might well function as such. Each piece has a slot that when fitted together properly become an attractive stand for digital devices.
These innovative device holders are called Prizms by Hub Innovations and come in two sizes. Most device holders are kinda clunky, but not the Prizm.
The larger size works well for iPods and 10 inch Androids in both landscape and portrait positions. Unfortunately, it only works in the horizontal position for Kindle Fires and devices with a seven inch screen.
There's always a pleasure in reviewing a quality product. The a-Jays ear Phone set is a winner in craftsmanship and sound quality.
The most difficult part was figuring out how to open the packaging. It comes in an oval plastic sleeve that seems to be tightly sealed top and bottom with no windows, doors or latches visible. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I finally got out my pliers and broke off the top. After that the innards slid out easily, and I was in business.
It is an attractive job of packaging though. Inside are replacement ear buds in three different sizes and the actual ear buds with a 3.5 mm stereo speaker/microphone jack on one end. There is a small manual to get you started in several languages.
I just returned from a road trip that was made more pleasant, productive, and convenient thanks to Arkon's versatile line of mounting products. It seems they have anticipated every mounting problem for digital devices possible and have solutions to suit your needs.
