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.



Special Announcement: Introducing Outdoor Technology's Bluetooth Mini-Boombox, the Turtle Shell.

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...



House Of Marley rocks the house with their Revolution headphones.

image

 

If you’d like to find a professional quality pair of on-ear headphones, that also happen to be manufactured by a company with ecologically and sociologically upstanding core principles, well, look no further.

 

 

House Of Marley is a “rough and tumble, brand revolution, setting out to change the shape of the future.” They have crafted an outstanding line of products and iDevice accessories. The company (which is spearheaded by Rohan Marley, one of Bob’s sons) has from the ground up, incorporated Bob Marley’s timeless wisdom of Love and “Inity” into its development. Giving 5% of their annual profits to charity (Rita Marley’s 1Love Foundation) and using materials that are either recycled or can easily be recycled, House Of Marley is a trailblazer in the new paradigm of eco-conscious iDevice products. Incorporating wood, and repurposed and recycled aluminum, fabric and plastic, House Of Marley has raised the bar for companies producing eco-friendly, hi-tech  accessories. With an ever-expanding line-up of merchandise, House Of Marley offers a lot of choices to anyone in the market for high-quality, stylish gear to go along with their gadgets.

 

The Revolution headphones are an exceptional pair of on-ear, professional quality headphones. When I put them on and listened to the first notes of music through them, it was such a wonderful experience. Imagine what it would sound like if crystals could sing! Indeed, these understated and comfortable headphones have a sound of crystalline clarity!



Introducing: House Of Marley. Bringing the sound to Satisfy Your Soul!

Bob Marley is undeniably one of the most influential musical artists of our time. More than just a talented musician though, Bob Marley was a preacher of love and unity, equal rights and harmony between peoples. It is an honor to present to you, the first in my series on House Of Marley.

 

 

Rohan Marley, one of Bob Marley’s sons, actively spearheads the House Of Marley. Its roots lie in the timeless ethical principles of Rohan’s father: charity, sustainability, one love, not to mention appreciation for good music and sound!

 

 

House Of Marley is still a fledgling company (formed in 2010), but already, they are setting a standard of excellence and quality while holding to the highest standards of eco-integrity.

Most iPad owners purchase a case to protect their device. The type of case you choose depends on how you'll be using your iPad and how much you want to spend. In this section we look at a variety of the best protective iPad accessories: cases, bags, shells, and sleeves, as well as stands. The descriptions not only include the list price but also the price on Amazon, so that you can get a sense for how much they're selling for through other online retailers.


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.
