Need a stylus? If your answer is "meh, not really, but sort of, I guess," let me submit that maybe you'd get some good use out of a stylus, but you're probably not gung-ho enough to drop $30 on one. Luckily our favorite destination for dirt-cheap cables-n-more, Monoprice.com, sells this great pen-slash-stylus for under $7.

Milo Review

Milo is a great little stand, with a microsuction pad to hold your iPhone or iPod touch (or other smartphone, I guess, if you gotta play it like that) in either portrait or landscape orientation. Bluelounge has a newer aluminum version for $29.95, but the original plastic version is just as good -- and only $14.95.

Glif for iPhone 5 Review

Studio Neat's clever Glif looks like a musical note from the side, hence its name. But that's not the cool thing about it -- Glif snaps onto your iPhone, then lets you securely screw that device onto a tripod or other camera-mounting system, so you can take better photos.

RadTech ACpower Review

Apple includes a USB power adapter with every new iPhone, iPod, and iPad, so in theory I should have...oh, at least 9 (no kidding) in my possession. In reality I am always looking for one. This is probably because I leave them behind in hotels or let friends borrow them, but how they disappear isn't the issue. The issue is how much I hate paying Apple for a new one. Luckily, RadTech's ACpower is cheaper than Apple's power adapters, and it can charge two iPads at once.

Until Apple starts cranking out iPhones in colors other than black and white, cases are the best way to add a splash of color, and low-cost cases like Cygnett's $19 Vector (which comes in purple or black) let you change up the color as often as you change your shoes.
