It's getting cold outside, so if you're a cyclist and worried about tracking your workout while indoors, technology is coming to the rescue. XSPIN from PAFERS
claims to be "The World’s First Cycling 'Appcessory' for Indoor Fitness Equipment."
Bluetooth held great promise when it first appeared on the scene, but its Achilles Heel has always been long distance. Beyond ten meters, and certainly around 30 meters, the sound can be unreliable. If you're an audiophile, you wouldn't build a whole-house audio solution around Bluetooth. Even AirPlay locks you in to Apple devices and supported apps.

As shapes and sizes of tablets, laptops, and gadgets change, the bags, backpacks, and carrying cases change with them. Booq’s latest offering caters to those whose digital lifestyles require their collection of gadgets, chargers, laptops, and other electronic accessories to travel along with them. Read on to find out of booq’s Boa shift is off target or hits its mark.
The iPad and tablet computing revolution is changing not only how we work and play, but also how we live—as we decorate our workplaces and homes with functional yet stylish furniture designs to match this new lifestyle. While several manufacturers have produced iPad stands and holders that bring the iPad and iPad Mini up to hands-free eye level, none of them have yet made an elegant piece of furniture intended for the living room or bedroom with just as much importance as a floor lamp or table. The Flote m2 Floor Stand intends to change that perception. Read on to see if it succeeds.
Eton has a great lineup of solar products available to charge and work with your iDevices. Two that I have had the pleasure of using are the rukus XL and BoostSolar charger.
Nearly all of the IK Multimedia products I have reviewed in the past were primarily designed for musicians. While some of their hardware and applications may have uses beyond the intended performer market, the company’s design philosophy has always been to put the musician front and center. While the iLoud ($299.99) continues to embody those design guidelines, its hardware specifications and capabilities will definitely raise the interest of both musicians and non-musicians alike. Let’s take a closer look at why this is the case.
The loadout for musicians is rapidly changing. Companies like IK Multimedia are redefining the way musicians interact with their instruments. One example of this is the company’s recently released iRig BlueBoard ($99.99). Instead of having MIDI cables snake across the floor from foot pedals to control boards, the iRig BlueBoard communicates MIDI transitions wirelessly via Bluetooth. How well does this work? Read on to find out.
In my CES 2013 recap, I reviewed the previous generation of Fuse Chicken's Une Bobine flexible cable/stand, when it supported Apple's 30-pin devices. Now they have a Kickstarter project for their Lightning-based version. I don't always post about Kickstarter projects; but since they have a nice existing product, and they were able to send me a review sample, I'm confident this isn't vaporware like other Kickstarter projects.
I've heard all of the propaganda, and seen all of the concept mockups, but I just haven't been able to wrap my mind around an iWatch. I mean, I don't even wear a regular wristwatch. Granted, back in the day I loved my calculator/Pac-Man watch (which was the pinnacle of high-tech back in Fort Collins, Colorado in the early '80s), and later my Casio G-Shock, but it's been almost a decade since I've worn a wrist watch with any regularity. Not since the invasion of smartphones have I made it a point to wear a wrist timepiece.
So when rumors of an Apple iWatch (or whatever it will eventually be called) started to circulate I was not overly enthused, and thus far, I have barely felt compelled to weigh in on the subject. Until now that is...

New audio accessories are constantly evolving for all iOS devices, and starting earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there were some great ones in action. Most prefer something compact, with good quality sound, and affordability. An integrated app is nice, but not crucial.
The Bose MIE2i wired mobile headset
are perfect examples of earbuds that are compact, have great sound quailty and are affordable. They are highly rated for both sound quality and comfort. They come with three sizes of StayHear silicon tips and an answer/end button on the inline microphone. The reviews say the quality of sound is tops. Note that these are standard earbuds - no noise-isolating to block unwanted sound.
A comparison of these earbuds and other great accessories are in the 2011 Best Gear article.
