Rumor: Apple OLED TV coming in April or May

image

TechnoBuffalo reported last week that a high-ranking source with a major tech retailer told them that an Apple TV will be coming out in April, or May at the latest. It will a use state-of-the-art OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display, and will include Siri and face recognition. One never knows how accurate these rumors are, but it's hard to imagine Apple coming out with a TV that wouldn't use OLED.



If you don't use a case and want an iPhone stand, the iKlik might just click for you #MacWorld

I use a variety of cases for each scenario, but a lot of iPhone owners keep their iPhone's naked. If you're one of those people, you might be interested in the iKlik, a plastic molded stand specifically built for holding a naked iPhone in landscape mode.



Give smudges the slip with iSlip #MacWorld

image
The iPad 2's Smart Cover often ends up spreading smudges rather than eliminating them. Enter the iSlip from Cooper Product. This spandex and microfiber accessory looks like a headband and that's a good analogy. Instead of wiping away sweat, it wipes away fingerprints and smudges, thanks to the microfiber lining. the spandex part stretches to let you attach it to your Smart Cover when not in use.



Stick your iPhone anywhere... The secret is magnets and BodyDock #MacWorld

If you want to put your iPhone anywhere, and I do mean anywhere, check out the Cellphone Armor BodyDock System from BodyDocks. They use an extensive system of magnets (hence the name, ) that includes a rugged case, assorted magnets, security tethers, and more.




These components work together to allow you to stick your iPhone on your clothing, refrigerator, purse, lanyard, automobile dashboard and really just about anywhere you can think of.



Powis iCase for iPad has all the angles covered, #MacWorld

It's hard to differentiate yourself if you are a case maker for iPads or iPhones, so it was nice to see the Powis iCase at MacWorld. They have found several ways to set themselves apart, and create a nice case in the process.



If the Watershed Grid Tablet Bag is good enough for Navy SEALs, it might be good for you and like the SEALs, it's made in USA

There are a lot of companies making waterproof cases for phones and even tablets, but not too many can say they supply the Navy SEALs! Watershed can, with their DryBags.com line of serious survival equipment.


Their Grid Tablet Bag is like a ziplock bag on steroids. The UV resistant polyurethane laminated nylon is combines with an airtight ZIPDRY seal with welded seams and mil-spec stitching.


Insanely Great is crazy enough to make their phone stands in the USA! #MacWorld

image
The mobile accessory company Insanely Great may get their name from one of Steve Jobs' sayings, but in addition to designing their products in California, Insanely Great actually makes them there, too. It helps that their phone stands and holders have a few basic parts, specifically molded plastic, grippy backing, and suction cups. But the finished product is attractive, solid, colorful, and useful. Their product names are even whimsical!





Touch type on an iPad without an external keyboard with iKeyboard! #MacWorld

image
I do a lot of typing on my iPad so I have a number of external Bluetooth keyboards. Some are built in to an iPad case and others are standalone units but they all have one thing in common... They use batteries. This was evident on the long flight home from CES when my keyboard ran out of power.


Enter the iKeyboard. In fact, I'm typing this article using one! The iKeyboard is an overlay for the iPad's built in virtual keyboard, in landscape mode. It stays in place using a sticky backing yet it can be applied and removed repeatedly with no residue.


Opena let's you open a beer or other bottle #MacWorld

image
There are a surprising number of vendors offering an iPhone case that includes a beer bottle opener, but the Opena model stands out for a few reasons. Rather than have the opening mechanism around the Apple logo on the back of the iPhone case, the Opena has a slide out opener made of stainless steel. This means, when opening a bottle, the pressure is not placed directly on the phone.





Nomad goes where no stylus has gone before #MacWorld

image
There are a lot of stylus' out there, but Nomad Brush has a couple that make a big difference. First, the Nomad Play is targeted at kids thanks to its smaller length, larger width, and wooden handle. But what really sets it apart is the paintbrush style tip, with conductive fibers so users can 'paint' directly on the screen. There is a rubber base where the fibers meet the stylus, so it reduces the chance of kids scraping the screen.
