Stabile Pro Pivoting iPad Stand: Review

image

 

The Stabile Pro is one of my favorite stands on the market.  The Stabile Pro stand is twice the weight of the iPad at 4 lbs.  The extra weight provides the adequate needed balance to secure the stand.  One of the greatest features of this stand is it’s built in the U.S.A from solid steel.  It has a pivoting head for viewing in either landscape or portrait view.  It has a slit cut in the back for cable positioning.  The stand brackets that hold the iPad secure are covered by protective rubberized tips. 



Writer Bluetooth Case by Adonit: Review

image

Adonit has developed a new Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad called, Writer.  They offer a model of Writer for both versions of the iPad.  The Writer Bluetooth case is quite different from most others I have used in the past.  It not only looks a bit different but feels differently as well.   I think what makes it look a bit different is the fact the iPad simply snaps into the Bluetooth case along a bracket type hinge.  It doesn't have its own back persay.  The Writer has several on board keys such as play, rewind, fast forward, and more.

Extreme Portfolio™ by G-Form: Review

image

 

The G-Form Extreme folio is made from a spongy type substance without the holes.  It comes available in yellow or black colors.  The folio style is my personal favorite type of all the iPad case selections.  I like the variety of the many different viewing angles it offers.  G-Form uses proprietary RPT technology and Poron XRD material to absorb energy while protecting the iPad from impact.  Its products are all made with the intentions of protecting the iPad at all cost.  I haven’t seen any other cases on the market offer more protection ability.

What gadget lover doesn't dream of the day they can be wearing sunglasses with overlay displays, augmenting their reality with location statistics, friend status, emails and every so often, a video.

Go ahead and brag.  Whether it's because your kid is an honor student or your niece is adorable, or just because you have an iPad or iPhone.  Or maybe it's all of the above?!  If so, you are in luck because the nice folks at Braggables.com have a line of iOS accessories (named iBrag of course) that let you carry your gadgets in style and brag about your loved ones at the same time!

Review: Arkon Universal Windshield Tablet Mount

Arkon sent me their recently released tablet mount system to try out. This universal system not only allows you to use your iPad, but a wide assortment of tablets in your vehicle by placing the device in a mount system that attaches to your windshield.

In the package you get the extension arm and spring loaded holder. There are six arms that also slide onto the holder. They consist of two sizes that allow you to mix and match for your particular needs.



Looking for a unique Christmas gift? Check out the HELO-TC

image

 

My husband, Bill, was a helicopter pilot, who flew in Vietnam and on the Delaware State Police. Although he's retired now, he still has great memories from his flying days. When I saw the HELO TC remote-controlled helicopter being promoted online, I immediately asked for one to review. I wanted my husband to try it and see if he would recommend it. He does, and so do I! I found it to be just as much fun as he does! 



Griffin TechSafe Case for iPad 2 Review

image

Griffin is no stranger to the iPad accessories market, so it's not surprising that they would branch out beyond the usual selection of cases and stands by offering a niche product that satisfies an important need. Read on to learn more about their TechSafe Case.

The TechSafe Case was specifically designed for an unsheathed iPad 2, so that the slip snuggly protects the iPad 2 from flimsy extraction. Once the case is tightly coupled around the iPad 2, a cable and 4-dial combination safety lock can be used to keep the iPad 2 secured to a table or display stand. The most obvious use cases for the TechSafe Case are for trade show exhibitions, store displays and interactive kiosks.

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.
