Kensington Wi-Drive: Review

image

 

Kingston Wi-drive is a portable, wireless storage for Apple products and other devices. The Wi-drive comes in 16 GB or 32 GB options. I think if you're going to purchase extra storage I would definitely go for the bigger 32 GB version. The reason being is it's only about $20 extra dollars and it's well worth it. The Kingston Wi drive is very simple to operate and connect to your network. Simply download an application from the App Store onto the Apple device that you're going to be using and it will walk you through the installation with ease.

 



Rest easy this holiday shopping season, and get them an iRest from Rain Design

When the iPad came out and ushered in the era of the tablet, I thought it might eliminate the laptop accessory market, but in reality, it just transformed it. Instead of laptop cooling pads, we are now being offered tablet stands.  I'm naturally skeptical and there are a lot of vendors taking photo frame easels, adding the prefix "i" and charging ten times as much.

Sea Sucker iPad Stand Review

One of the best features of the iPad 2 is its thin diameter design.  Many users may not want to make the iPad bulky by adding a case.  If the user chooses not to add a case for extra protection or other purposes the Sea Sucker can be used for many reasons, such as a stand.  There are products on the market to use for a stand.  Sea Suckers are simply giant sized stoppers with a pump.  They have an air valve inside them to pump the air from between the Sea Sucker and the material it’s being attached to.  The Sea Suckers are the strongest seal I have ever seen.  They actually held a guy to the top of his c



Angle /2 by Nizmos iPad 2 Case Review

The Angle/2 for the iPad 2, is a slimmer more streamline version of the original Angle iPad case. The Angle offers a sleep mode that is automatically activated when you close the cover and wakes up when you open it. It has several different viewing angles for use in bed or at the desk.  One of my favorite features of the Angle is the elastic band along the back panel allows you to hold your iPad safely in one hand, leaving your other hand free for typing and presentation. This case would be great for speakers or

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.
