I've been having a ball with the iCADE, $100 from ThinkGeek.com though I've also seen it at Toys R Us and Best Buy. Originally conceived as an April Fools Day joke, the idea was so attractive that they had it built as a real product... something that happens with remarkable frequency!

Scosche boomCAN Review

image

Scosche designed one of my favorite headsets, so I was looking forward to hearing what their inexpensive external rechargeable battery-powered speaker sounded like. Does the boomCAN do audible justice to projecting high-fidelity sound for portable devices like the iPhone and iPad? Read on to find out.

Let's face it — the external speakers on iOS devices are adequate for short bursts of close proximity listening, but they're not the best when sharing the sound with others. The audio quality is pretty good, but volume is a problem.



Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer Review

Even though the iOS devices are stylus-free, there are growing numbers of artists, note takers and business users who are more comfortable using a stylus when navigating and creating data and imagery with their iPhones and iPads. But given the single purpose-built functionally of such rubber-tipped styli, its yet another item that has to be carried around. Griffin Technology, a company that knows all about iOS accessories, has combined a tablet stylus with a pen and a laser pointer. It's three separate pointing devices melded into a standalone multi-purpose product. Read on for the full review.

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.
