Review: NinjaGrips

image

 

Here is a neat product for the iPad that I want to tell you about. This will appeal to those who may like to keep their iPads naked but want to add an accessory that will help prevent slips from the hand. It may also appeal to others who want to add some design to their device. I present to you NinjaGrips. This is a “gripping” system that basically sticks via adhesive to the back of your device. NinjaGrips sent me over a review sample to try out.



Marware's EcoVue Case for iPad: Looks Great and it Holds My Pogo Stylus!

image

 

When I first got my iPad, I purchased the Apple iPad case to go with it. It’s a great case and what you would expect from an Apple product. It’s sleek, functional and protects the iPad as it should. But it was missing something – I couldn’t store my Pink Pogo Stylus in it, and you know how much I love my stylus!



Review: Proporta’s Maya II Sleeve

image

 

Proporta sent me their new iPad Pouch, the Maya II Sleeve, to test out.  This is basically a large slip case for your iPad. I have used slip cases in the past, but not for a device this large (compared to handheld devices). The slip case comes wrapped in a cardboard strip. It’s very basic, but gets the job done with the product information.



My Deal of the Day

image

 I have been looking for a small functional bag for the iPad. I do not mind spending the money for a quality bag but for something like that, I would prefer to see it and handle it first. I have been checking best Buy but they have not cut it for selection. I also checked Target because they are local and sometimes have some nice bags. So, I went to some tag sales yesterday (a.k.a. yard sales, garage sales) and found a brand new Swiss Army bag that I thought may work. The price I paid; $5.00. I figured I had nothing to lose. If it did not fit, I would use it for Geocaching. 

        Sure enough, I got it home and it fits great. The retail links are below for one site where you can get further information on it.



Perfect iPad Purse - Update

image
I am on a quest to find myself the perfect iPad purse. The bag I'm using now is good - but it's not PERFECT. It doesn't hold enough gear and it isn't designed for everyday use. I'm open to all ideas and suggestions! Coach, Fossil, DKNY, Prada, Kate Spade, Sak, Gucci, Louie, Calvin, Ralph, Chanel? Where should I start? Nordstroms? Macy's? Walmart? Target?


Projecting a good image - AAXA Micro Projector Plus review

image

 

Keynote on the iPad might encourage you to take your show on the road and present without a traditional computer.  In preparation for a talk I’m giving at the local Apple Users Group, I have been experimenting with Keynote and the M1 Micro Projector Plus from AAXA ($299 to $339 at www.aaxatech.com).

 



Sleek booster helps callers hear you now, even with AT&T

image

AT&T.  Nothing inspires more conversation among iPhone owners than those few letters.  AT&T has benefitted from their exclusive contract, but their coverage has been an easy target for competitors and late night comics.  What is an iPhone road warrior to do?

I had the chance to try the Sleek from Wilson Electronics, Inc.  ($130 MSRP).  True to the name, the Sleek is smaller than Wilson’s previous models and more portable than hardwired models.  I had always been hesitant to try any device that needed to be permanently wired into my car or that worked exclusively with one phone.



HandHeldItems.Com Screen Protectors

image

 I have been looking for a good quality affordable screen protector for the iPad. I wanted to add a little screen protection and get a sheet that helps cut down on the fingerprints. I did not really want to spend $25-$30 for one screen protector, because I have always had a problem putting them on the smaller devices.  I figured putting one on the iPad would put me over the edge. I did not want to throw $25 bucks down the drain and have to throw it out because I messed it up too bad. I would not mind putting a few extra bucks in to get a high quality product, because in the end it’s usually worth it. But I was not going to take a chance on this, just in case. I went to HandHeldItems.com because I know they had some iPad accessories there.

Macworld 2010

A showcase of amazing accessories and innovative apps

While smaller in scope than in its heyday, Macworld still draws a large number of Apple enthusiasts. One of the most surprising things about the show for me was that Microsoft had a large presence, but there was none for Apple. Macworld gives iPhone and iPod touch venders an opportunity to show off their latest apps and accessories. Believe me, there was plenty of innovation on display. Here is a look at some of the more interesting iPhone and iPod touch accessories and apps I saw at the show.
