Take Stable Selfies with iStabilizer Monopod and Shutter Remote

image

Selfies are all the rage, but that doesn't mean they are great to look at. When you hold your arm out and try to snap a photo, it's never going to be as good as if someone else took the shot. There are some apps and Bluetooth gadgets like the iStabilizer Shutter Remote that make it easier to snap the picture, either by clapping or touching a button, but unless the phone is positioned properly, you're still going to get a dud of a photo.



FlipBelt Makes All Your Tech "Wearable"

While the world waits for the Apple Watch, you can "wear" your iPhone and other gear today, thanks to the FlipBelt. The FlipBelt is a stylish, remarkably expandable, stretchable fabric belt with hidden compartments. You could store an MP3 player, headphones, keys, a wallet, etc., and it wouldn't add much bulk at all. This makes the FlipBelt great for jogging or working out. Thanks to the wide variety of color choices, it's also a great fashion accessory.

There's no limit to the adventures you can have with these revolutionary designs.



Big Sound in a Small Package From Soundmatters

image

If you just received a new iPad or iPhone for the holidays, congratulations. But you'll probably notice that the sound from the built-in speakers isn't that great. Apple's emphasis on design and looks means that they put the speaker grill at the bottom of the device, facing down. It's hardly optimal for quality sound. If sound matters to you, you should consider the Soundmatters line of speakers.



Apple TV AirPlay Mirroring Could Work Both Ways

image

Apple TV's AirPlay mirroring feature has been a great reason to own an Apple TV. Users can launch videos on a portable iOS device and "throw" the display to the big screen. Games can be shared with an audience as well. It's a great tool for education, as teachers can find a video on their iPad or iPhone and share it with the classroom.

IOgrapher Turns Your iPad Into a Professional Videography Solution

image

Videography and the iPad don't usually go together. And that's a shame because the large screen of the iPad and even the iPad mini make for a great video editing tool. Without a USB port or SD card slot, transferring video files to the iPad is a hassle, even with AirDrop. Ideally, you could easily record quality video on the iPad and edit it immediately using iMovie or third party apps.



Want an Apple Watch Today?

If you've been waiting patiently, or impatiently, for an Apple Watch but just can't wait any longer, or if you can't justify the $349+ price tag, I have good news for you. You can get an "Apple Watch" today, in the same way that I once bought a "Rolex" for $50 on the streets of Taipei, Taiwan. A Chinese gadget site called Everbuying.com offers a $40 clone of the Apple Watch that is available today.



iPhone Life's Top 20 Headphones of 2014

image

To make it onto this list, headphones must shine in the following areas: They must be exceptionally comfortable, they must be well built and they must have superior sonic quality. No earphones that have to be inserted into the ear are included in this list and any Bluetooth headphones featured have to include a microphone for convenient conversing. Sounds simple enough right? Well, it would be, except for the fact that there are so many great headphone options out there. Coming up with a condensed list of 20 headphones to highlight out of the hundreds of great choices on the market was no easy task, but after a year spent studying the intricacies and nuances of a great many headphones, this list represents 2014's cream of the crop.



Product Review: Proporta Touchscreen Gloves

image

If you've ever tried to use your touch screen with regular gloves on, you know it does not work. At. All. The gloves that are out there that do work with a touch screen are usually either kind of ugly or don't keep your hands warm. You can't seem to get the best of both worlds. Knowing this, the people over at Proporta created unisex One size fits all Touch Screen Gloves ($13.99) that are nice looking and very thick and warm.
