Good looking iZON lets you look in on your house and family members

image
The iZON from stem is a beautiful, functional Wi-Fi enabled security camera / NannyCam. In fact, it looks like it was designed by Apple, which is high praise indeed. It's a small cylinder, reminiscent of Apple's original iSight external camera.


The removable convex base connects to the iZON via magnets, allowing for some flexible angles.


If your iPhone is extremely important, you need extreme protection from G-Form

I dropped my iPhone the other day. Needless to say, I didn't like it. It seemed to happen in slow motion. Sure, iCloud would have a backup of most of my data but, as an app developer, even a day or two's loss of use of my iPhone would be difficult, and expensive.



iPhone Remote + iPole = cool self portraits and videos!

image

I've been using (and have written about) the iPole from FastCap, since I first picked it up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The hiking iPole model or the telescoping mini iPole both offer a tripod mount (and optional iPhone case with tripod thread) is a great way to take self portraits and include yourself in videos.  But the one downside is you have to stretch to turn on or off the recording mode.



Customize your iCade for an even better retro gaming experience

image
Our readers try to get the most out of their iOS-based technology, so it's no surprise they have responded to our coverage of the iCade Bluetooth based arcade cabinet. One enterprising reader, Rob Mitchell went so far as to tweak his iCade to accommodate traditional joysticks and a breakout box, suitable for different game apps.



iHangy evolves and adds earbuds to their already cool iPhone necklace.

image
I've written before about the iHangy iPhone necklace and it's been well received everywhere I've worn mine. But the one thing many folks have asked for are integrated earbuds. Those wishes have been addressed.





Gumdrop tackles the hard job of rapidly making a rugged case for the new iPad

image
Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet Gumdrop was able to create and ship their ruggedized Gumdrop Drop Tech case rather quickly. In fact,while the case I received fit my new iPad perfectly, though the package it shipped in still said iPad 2, but it had a sticker indicating support for the new iPad.


Ten One's Magnus is a magnificent work of design, if you like your iPad naked

image
The folks at Ten One have been making iOS accessories since the early days, with their Pogo stylus, but their latest creation is something quite unique. Suppose you want to keep your iPad naked, without a case, and you want to prop it up,with a stand. Most stands are obtrusive and take away from the iPad's sleek look. Not the Magnus. It is a slick chunk of aluminum with a few pads for protection, and some hidden magnets, like Apple's SmartCover. This allows the iPad to magically 'stick' to the stand, although it must do so in exactly one configuration, landscape with the dock connector on the right.


A case that helps more than your iPhone

image
I saw a beautiful iPhone case at MacWorld, and the aesthetics alone were worth the purchase price, but there's more than meets the eye. Trü Protection tells us that 15 percent of the purchase price goes to a specific charity, depending on the case design.



Win the fin, by Liking Octa Products on Facebook!

image
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.


OtterBox ships an iPad case so good, it comes in its own case!

image
Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet OtterBox was able to create and ship their ruggedized iProtection case rather quickly. In fact, before the new iPad was announced, back when everyone expected it to be called the iPad 3, OtterBox was teasing the press, promising an iPad 3 case would be ready almost immediately.
