DLO Wall Dock

Wall Dock by DLO - $24


Quick Facts

Mount and charge your iPod or iPhone at any AC wall outlet

Delivers more power for a faster charge

Results:

I took this on my last road trip.  It was very handy in a small hotel room when charging my iPhone near the sink.  It kept it up off the counter away from any splashes.  It delivers a nice, quick charge - maybe due to no cords? 

It doesn't feel as if it's very stable on the wall dock.  I feared that if I bumped it, it would snap off.

 

Bottom Line: 5 out of 10 iPhones

I wouldn't buy it, but if I got it as a gift, I wouldn't return it.



iPhone fallout: the magical Magic Mouse

Honestly, I had mixed feelings when my new iMac27 came with that tiny wireless keyboard and the new wireless Magic Mouse. But WOW! The Magic Mouse rocks. It's awesome, terrific, wonderful and the best ever. After a week with the new iMac I cannot imagine ever using another mouse again.

What makes the Magic Mouse so great? It feels like you're using an iPhone! That's because the top of the Magic Mouse is really a Multi-Touch surface with gesture support. So instead of driving a scroll wheel or that funky microball in earlier Apple mice, you scroll exactly like you do on an iPhone. There's the same wonderful precision and, just like on the iPhone, you can scroll with "momentum," i.e. whip up and down pages (or any other direction) and then stop on a dime.

BLACK FRIDAY! iPhone and iPod touch accessories

image

 Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, when retailers traditionally make enough money to shift from red ink to black) is almost here so I thought I'd share some iPhone and iPod touch accessory deals you can look forward to.  I've used the Ten One Pogo Stylus and found it useful for many games and utilities.

And here is a ingenius new product to help you take that perfect photo or video. The U+3G iPhone Holder from G Design LLC is the perfect accessory to help attach your iPhone to a tripod.

MoGo Talk Review - A Bluetooth Headset with a Disappearing Trick

image

LG makes a phone called the Envy, but the LG phone that I've always envied is the Decoy.  The LG Decoy has a snap-on Bluetooth earpiece that always goes with the phone.  It's a novel concept that we iPhone users couldn't take advantage of.  Now, there's a headset for that!

 



Mommy is Mad!!!

Open letter to all iPhone Accessory Manufacturers,

 

Hey Guys. Did you forget about us? The iPhone Moms? According to Greystripe – the leading mobile brand advertising network - 29.5% of iPhone users are moms. How will that number jump once Santa or Hanukah Harry comes around?
Where are the products for us? Do you not understand that mom’s don’t like BlueTooth? Here’s why:

            * It’s too confusing.



iPhone OS 3.1.2 A2DP / AVRCP (stereo Bluetooth) iPhone 3G / 3GS test results

image


You may well remember that, immediately after the release of OS 3.0 and the 3G S, I’ve published quite a few tests on stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) headphones compatibility with both the iPhone 3G and the 3G S (see THIS for my latest report).

Now that version 3.1.2 is out and I had some time to research how it can be safely jailbroken, I’ve re-run the tests, particularly in order to find out how voice control over Bluetooth works.
