Win the fin, by Liking Octa Products on Facebook!

I've written about the very cool Octa TabletTail before, and now they are giving iPhone Life readers a chance to win one of these cool tablet stands/grips. I first saw these folks at MacWorld, but I've finally had some hands-on time with the TabletTail. It's a combination grip/stand that attaches either directly to your tablet or a tablet case as long as the case is not porous.


When it comes to iPhone cases, More is better.

I like to change my iPhone case frequently, depending on the situation. This weekend, I participated in a Startup Weekend (my app won Best Mobile App, by the way!) so I needed a case with a battery pack, during the 54 hour marathon session.



Unorganized?

To be the most successful person that one can possibly be, getting organized seems to be the first step.  With iExplorer, taking that step just gets easier by the minute.

 

iExplorer (HD) is an application that allows a user to basically view and manage files on their servers.  This is not just on the iphone, but in the office, at home and virtually anywhere possible!  The app does not just simply manage files though, because the user can play music, read books and do a whole lot more.



UNU battery case for all day iPhone usage

image

I've written, favorably, about other cases from UNU/iBattz before, but their latest case, the UNU DX Plus, packs even more power. With an extra 2400mAh of juice, you can more than double the battery life of your iPhone 4 or 4S.





Go ahead and go ballistic with the Lifestyle Smooth iPhone case

I'm always on the lookout for the right iPhone case, and usually that means swapping out cases based on the occasion. For a fancy night out, I'll look for a sleek case. For camping, something rugged. For day to day use, something with protection but not too bulky. And for extended use, away from power outlets, I'll want a case with a built-in battery pack. It's hard to find a case that meets more than one of those requirements.



Tame your cables with CableJive

Ever since I bought my new iPad, which is more power hungry than the iPad 2, I have been looking for ways to keep it charged. I have several iPhone docks around the house, but they don't have room to support an iPad.



New VoIP Adapter: free calls forever

 

Lose your landline, lose MagicJack. Get OBi100 VoIP adapter for $39.99 and make FREE calls over the Internet forever. It kinda bugged me when MagicJack raised their rates by 10 bucks a year to a captive audience this year. Well, here's something you can do about it. Get an OBi100 unit.

The Obi100 phone adapter plugs into your router for Internet connectivity. Then it makes calls using an interface like Google Voice. Of course you have to configure it to your Google Voice account or another service such as Sipgate, so it's not quite plug and play. But that's not a big deal.



Review: Griffin HELO TC Assault

image

You have probably read Tim Hillebrands’ review of the Griffin Helo TC remote control helicopter a few weeks ago. If you have not, I suggest you do and will place the link below. I also had the opportunity to play, I mean test, this new product out (pics at the end of review).

The kit comes with the Helicopter, a control pack, instructions, charging cable, missiles and some extra parts. The setup is pretty straightforward.

 

 

It’s important to note that this is designed for indoor use. I did try it outside and it did not function well.



One tough customer - Seidio Surface Plus Case review

image

Seidio is taking iPhone protection to the next level with a 1700mAh case/combo pack that is freaking awesome! They recently sent me a review kit to check out the Surface/Convert Plus value pack. Really an impressive amount of protection for normal citizens. If you want the Batmobile of case products, then you found it. Read on for the full review...



Review: iHealth Blood Pressure Dock

image

For the last few weeks I have been using the iHealth Blood Pressure Dock. This is the first product of this type that I have actually used so I don’t have any comparison products to judge it against. But I can say its one of the easiest things to use right out of the box (My pics are at the end of the review)

The kit comes with the dock, instructions, power USB cable for dock, and your choice (out of two sizes) of arm cuff.  The free app required needs a minimum of iOS 3.0 or greater (There was an app update this month). The dock itself contains a rechargeable battery that powers the blood pressure system / cuff.
