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! Their items are available in a 'wet crocodile' style that many women pay a lot more for at stores like Brighton, but to be honest, as a man, I like it too, at least in black!

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

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.

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!

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.
