Hop on the BulletTrain for a streamlined keyboard and trackpad combo

image

Many iOS users are also Mac users, like myself, so if you have a Mac, and an Apple wireless keyboard, and an Apple Magic Trackpad, pay attention! I have all of the above, but I found that I didn't use the trackpad that much. Rather than slide my hand off to the right, past my Magic Mouse, to the trackpad, and lose time, and risking Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I prefer the design of Apple's laptops, with the trackpad just below the spacebar.



Bring some Joy to your World, with cases from The Joy Factory

image

This is one for the ladies. Or for those of you with a special lady in your life. As long as she has an iPhone!




The Joy Factory makes some great accessories, so I was excited to see why they would come up with for the iPhone 5. Just like with restrooms, the ladies always get the better end of the deal. While men get a step above an outhouse, from what I've heard, ladies rooms have couches, perfume, etc. Ladies get some neat options for cellphone cases as well.



AudiOffice will enhance your calls, and your conference room

image
When I first saw the product name, AudiOffice, I was expecting a mobile office for an Audi automobile! But don't let the name fool you. AudiOffice is an elegant, well-built, well-designed Bluetooth speakerphone system for your office.



A great case... from a bag manufacturer, STM Bags

image
For a company that goes by STM Bags, they offer a lot more than just bags, and they do a great job of it. When I first got my iPad mini, as nice and small and light as it is, I knew I wanted to keep it in a case. At first, I bought a cheap case on Amazon, but it was bulky, and the magnets weren't lined up correctly, so the automatic sleep/wake feature didn't work.



Olloclip updated for iPhone 5, works with Panorama mode #olloclip

image
I've been a fan of the Olloclip since it came out, so I was glad to see the iPhone 5 version was coming. In fact, I've been able to play with a prerelease version for a few weeks, and you can get one now that it was just announced today.



Keep the party going with HMDX Jam Bluetooth speaker, and myCharge portable battery pack! Black Friday specials!

image

I've written, glowingly, before about the HMDX Jam Wireless Portable Speaker that uses Bluetooth to pump out solid sounds and act as a speakerphone.  And it does so in a solidly built, beautiful design, that, when packaged in its clear jar, is suggestive of jelly, hence the name Jam!

 



Give your iOS devices a HyperBoost of storage with the iUSBport

image
Sanho makes a variety of battery packs under the HyperJuice name that give you extra power for iOS, Apple, and other USB based devices, but I was intrigued by their latest offering. The iUSBport is a hockey puck sized device that takes any USB hard drive or flash drive and turns it into a wireless storage device!



UNU offers a clever approach to create the first iPhone 5 battery case

image
As much as I love new Apple products, one of the drawbacks to being an early adopter is the lack of compatibility with older accessories. In the case of the iPhone 5, to enjoy the new form factor, you have to upgrade to the new, proprietary Lightning connector. While there are adapters for speaker docks, etc., one type lf accessory that has been unable to make the transition is a case with a built in battery.



Count on OtterBox for protecting your iPad mini and other gadgets

image
You can always count on OtterBox for heavy duty protective cases but also for rapid development of cases following the unveiling of a new Apple device. Sure enough, my iPad mini was just a few days old when I was able to wrap it in a protective Defender case from OtterBox.



Magellan GPS Car Kit goes above, beyond and everywhere

image
Magellan has offered quality GPS tools for years, so I shouldn't be surprised that their GPS Car Kit for the iPhone and iPod touch is a quality product. Apple's maps app may not be world class, currently, so Magellan offers their own proven Roadmate app.
