We usually write about products you can buy, but the iPhone4 Photography Kit is a concept that's on the drawing board, waiting for your support at Kickstarter.com. The kit is a slider case in three parts, plus an optional neckstrap. The left and right parts slide together and are sealed by a locking ring. The end result looks like a digital SLR with the ring resembling the camera lens. Actual photos are still taken with the iPhone 4's built-in camera. White and black are planned with potentially five additional colors if the project takes off.
The Remix Remote is another headphone I just finished using. These all metal constructed headphones which come with Kevlar reinforced cabling as well as a built in microphone and remote. This set comes with all kinds of goodies.
We all love our gadgets but one of the things we despise is the fingerprints and smudges that are left on them. It’s a never ending battle to keep our little guys clean. Chances are you probably have a few or more microfiber cloths lying around. Some of them are nice and some are pretty cheap. Recently, I got to try out a new microfiber cloth called the “Toddy.”
It’s a very stylish 5”x7” cleaning cloth. But don’t let the pretty looks fool you. This guy can clean. The specs below tell you what this is made of.
Richard Solo introduced another backup battery to their lineup, which is their 9000mAh Mobile Charger. There is enough power in this bad boy to give almost a 100% charge to your iPad or increase the amount of hours you can use your iPhone or iPod. According to their specs as it relates to the iPhone/iPod “the Mobile Charger can increase your movie viewing or Internet browsing time from 5-6 hours to 68 hours — or audio up to 325 hours.” For my review, I am using it exclusively with my iPad.
What I like:
It folds in half and stores in a nifty case, which makes it very convenient for me to carry it in my purse. I’m not sure that would be a benefit for men unless they carry their iPad in a large case, backpack or a “man” bag. But for me, it’s great. The Apple keyboard took up more room in my purse.
It uses 2 AAA batteries. I’d rather carry two extra batteries in my purse than a charger. Again, it’s the bulk issue.
Richard Solo has a great deal going on this week for their 1200 MAh backup battery with flashlight, for iphone and iPod.
(Please note: this deal expired on March 14th, 2011, but you can still purchase through the link below)

The flipSYNC II is a “keychain Charge and Sync Cable for iPod & iPhone.” It’s designed so it’s compact and can be used with your keychain. But there is nothing saying you have to use a keychain with it.
One of the things I like to use my devices for is music and movies. I don’t usually watch movies unless I’m traveling, but I do listen to music more frequently. I prefer to use my Bluetooth headset when I am walking or doing yard work. I do occasionally use wired headset in these circumstances, but most of the time use the wired sets when I am stationary.
I tried the ZAGGaquabuds while I was on vacation, mostly in the airport and on the plane.
If you are looking for a secure, very easy to configure and use, remote desktop app (and I am happy to report it works well with Linux), check out TeamViewer. If you don't mind the app reminding you to upgrade it--and the lack of a few features--it is completely free. You can grab everything you need here (DLs available for Mac, PC, and Linux), and the app store link above. The config for Ubuntu geeks is pretty simple (download the debian package, run the desktop app, and perform similar actions on iPhone to connect).
I went to Florida for a week so I am catching up on things. Here are some misc thoughts from my trip and email catch-up.
My iOS Gear I took was fairly light. I brought my iPad as well as the GNS GPS receiver I just reviewed. I used my dedicated TomTom car unit but brought the GNS as backup. TomTom stayed in the rental car pretty much the whole time. (I did not want to leave the iPad in the car.)
I debated on bringing a keyboard with me for the iPad. I ended up not and I did not regret it at once. I used the iPad heavily at the airport and on the plane. During the week, I was busy enjoying the various amusement parks in Orlando and trying to get a sun tan. I would have used it more during the week when I was at the place we stayed but there was no internet service.

iPhone accessories is a growing market and knowing where to start looking is half the battle. Whether you're looking for an iPhone accessories, iPad accessories or iPod Touch accessories you can find articles here on the latest products. For example, here's a snippet from an Arm Bands Review:
"Have you ever tried to run with your iPhone in your pocket? It's more awkward than running with scissors. Your phone smacks against your thigh during every step or worse, falls out every few feet. Running with your device in hand is not much better. The headphone cord flops everywhere, and your hand is uncomfortable the entire time. The first step to taking your iPhone or iPod Touch on a run (please don't run with your iPad) is securing it to your body. Armbands can take a little getting used to (it feels slightly like running with a blood pressure cuff) but they are definitely much better than keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch in your pocket. Here are some solutions I've tried out..."
Here's a 2 Cases Comparison article: "There are two cases that protect your iPhone from just about anything: The Ballistic Hard Core and The Otterbox Defender. So which to buy? Both provide the best protection you can buy. The Ballistic provides five layers of protection. The Otterbox provides three. However, the three layers are all that's needed for most people. If you're a telephone repair man or think you might drop your phone three stories, then you might want the extra layers of the Ballistic..."
