As Bob Marley sings: "Give Thanks And Praises!" And indeed, today is a day for doing just that!
If you follow me online (Click HERE or HERE for more on House Of Marley), you likely already know that House Of Marley is one of my favorite developers of iOS accessories and gear out there. Taking the Honarable Robert Nesta Marley's timeless vision of love and "inity" his many offspring have formed various charitable foundations to spread that love, while consciously raising awareness, as well as funds for children in need. In particular, House Of Marley has created an outstanding line up of products to support us in our iOS enjoyment. Now House Of Marley and Apple have officially teamed up to raise money for the charity "Little Kids Rock" which helps support music education in "under-served" schools.
Apple's new Lightning dock connector has made traditional iPod docks obsolete, and since vendors haven't created Lightning dock stereos, yet, it's pretty clear that the future is using wireless technologies like AirPlay and Bluetooth to transmit audio.
There's a lot of talk about Apple's proprietary Lightning cable for the new iPhone 5, but there are millions of existing iPhone, iPads, and iPod touch devices that still use the 30 pin connector. In fact, now that the iPhone 4 can be purchased for under $100, there will be even more sold.
With the world becoming more and more digital, fashion and utility change along with the times. The sign of success among the technorati isn't marked by a heavy leather briefcase, but rather a smartly optimized, gadget and laptop friendly backpack. Such is the objective of ECBC's Lance Daypack B7103.
I've written about Findables before, here: http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/2458/be-found-qr-coded-cases-findables but it's crunch time! Their Indiegogo crowd supported project has 63 hours left and is not yet completely funded.
As you know, I'm also a big fan of accessories that make it easier for us to be Mobile, in the widest range of situations and circumstances possible. So products that help support our mobility by being built ruggedly and with integrity, and accessories that are highly compactable and portable, always trip my radar.
Add to my list of highly useful gadgets: The Jorno. The world's smallest, folding Bluetooth keyboard.
I'm all about companies that don't just make a great product for profit, but also make a great product while being exemplary of a new way of thinking; one that makes our environment and experiencing the enjoyment of nature and the great outdoors, higher priorities. It's easy to diconnect from Mother Earth if we aren't careful, and I appreciate a company that understands how tied in to our mobile devices we are, while at the same time, facillitating ways in which we can integrate our hi-tech, mobile devices into a lifestyle that takes greater advantage of outdoor activities and adventures.
So without further ado, I'd like to introduce to you, a Kickstarter project worth knowing about! Outdoor Technology's Turtle Shell, rugged, wireless Bluetooth Boombox. Read on after the break for full details in the Press Release...

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.
