The Cell Lens Band is really the ideal iPhone accessory, since it's just as much fun for "serious" photographers as it is for people like me whose knowledge doesn't extend far beyond "macro means really close up, right?"
Your iPhone, with its music, GPS, and myriad fitness apps, is a great workout partner, once you solve the problem of where to keep it while you're working up a sweat. Griffin's Trainer armband (also available for iPhone 4/4S, iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod classic) fits the bill for under $20.
We just gave a glowing review to Bluelounge's Milo stand, an elegantly curved stand for an iPhone or iPod touch. Satechi's brightly colored iFit-1 speaker isn't quite as elegant, but it's only $1 more -- and it's a stand as well as a rechargeable speaker.
The webcam on your Mac is great for FaceTime, but sometimes you need to keep tabs on something besides your desk. For keeping track of pets & babies, or that annoying kid down the street who keeps knocking over your garbage cans, Dropcam HD offers streaming video and sound to the internet, or your iPhone or iPad.
What a neat idea. According to HP, the Officejet 150 Mobile is the world’s first portable all-in-one printer, scanner, and photocopier. We’ve seen portable printers and mobile scanners before, but never both functions in the same unit. It could be of real interest to business travellers or real estate agents who spend a lot of time away from the company laser printer or their home office all-in-one inkjet.
Plenty of paper has been saved thanks to the iPhone and other portable devices: we no longer need to jot down lists and phone numbers or even snag the daily newspaper. As such, the Little Printer’s concept of bringing paper back into our phone-centric lifestyles feels like a novelty, but it’s hard to turn away such an adorable device. Still, much as we might want the Little Printer in our homes, considering its abundance of charm, we can’t figure out when or why we’d actually need it.
Put your arm straight out like you’re about to shake someone’s hand. Now twist your arm so your palm is facing down, and notice how you can feel that twist all the way up your forearm and even past your elbow. It just feels more tense.
If you experience wrist or arm pain from using a mouse in the palm-down position, Evoluent’s VerticalMouse offers a more natural, more ergonomic position that may help. But the change in position means a change in gestures, too, and that takes getting used to.
Western Digital has been making streaming set-top boxes for several years now. Their WD TV line has consistently packed a lot of value into their little black boxes. The latest, called WD TV Play, continues in that tradition, offering a plethora of content options at a lower price-point than some of their competitors.
Soundfreaq's Sound Stack is a bookshelf hi-fi that lets you keep your iPhone in your pocket, provided its no more than 33 feet away. But while built-in Bluetooth adds an extra feature to an otherwise standard high-end digital music system, it mainly serves as a reminder of why many of its peers stick to a dock-only format.
