ThinkGeek JOYSTICK-IT Now Available!

image

Anyone who says this ain't freaking cool, isn't...well, I don't know--cool, I guess. This is pretty darn chilly, and would almost make me buy an iPad. The iPod touch screen controls are about to drive me bananas. Anyway, one of our iPad freaks maybe can get some of these JOYSTICK-IT thingies from ThinkGeek, and tell us if they live up to the awesomeness (at least in the image)...anyway, read on for more PR info...

 



I wanna hold your pad (continued)

In an earlier article, I wrote about several cases that make it easier to get a good grip on your iPad.  This article builds on that one and includes additional cases that let you wear your iPad on your shoulder or neck. A comparison chart is included for your convenience.



Review: Arkon Headrest Mount & Custom Fit Protective Holder for iPad

image

 

If you are in the market for a vehicle mount for your iPad, here is one to consider during your research. Arkon released a Headrest Mount for iPad (model IPM-RSHM). It is designed to attach to your headrest for the people behind you.

The contents come sealed and protected as you can see in the picture. You receive instructions, the iPad Casing, and the actual mount.

Dual Releases XPS150-Bluetooth GPS Receiver

image

Dual recently released a Bluetooth GPS receiver for iOS devices called the XGPS150. I have to admit that it looks kind of neat. I sent their media contacts a request to test drive that puppy, so we will see if I get a response.

If you recall from a post a while back though, I was placed on the list for their original  iPod Touch GPS Receiver.

Ohhhh! The Particle case has a new look!

image

I just noticed that the Particle case has a new look: It's purple!

LOVE THE NEW COLOR! It also comes in blue and black. My favorite feature on this case is the stylus clip for the POGO Sketch. I use a stylus to keep fingerprints off the screen, and the clip keeps it right where I need it! Read more about this case in the iPhone Life Buyer's Guide.



Review: Speck Candyshell and SeeThru iPad Cases

image

 

The Speck Candyshell and SeeThru cases are not new, but they are favorites for many. I wanted to see why. This review is kind of a two for one, as I thought these cases were very similar to each other, even though they had their own differences.

SGP offers a stylus called the Kuel H10 Series. This is designed for the capacitive touch screen. The features listed below from their site give a lot of details on this product already, so I’m not going to just repeat them.



I wanna hold your pad #MacWorld2011

image

When people ask me what to get the person who has everything, I always reply "something to keep it in!"  So if you or someone you know is fortunate enough to have an iPad, you're probably looking for a case and/or stand to keep it in.  Vendors at MacWorld were happy to oblige.  In fact, there were several products that overlapped each other in functionality that I repeatedly experienced déjà vu!  Here are four such products designed to let you hold your iPad in one hand and/or display it on a stand.  I have included a handy (pun intended) chart that shows the similarities and differences.

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.
