Narrow your choices

We unwrap and set up our brand new iPhone. And then the unexpected happens.

In-Line Remote

Also available in black.   The In-Line Remote has a 40-inch cable, connects to your iPod’s dock connector, and lets you keep your iPod safe and sound in your pocket or bag. The remote provides basic track controls (skipping tracks, fast-forward, rewind, pause/play, and volume) and has a clip so you can attach it to your lapel, bag strap, or sleeve. The remote also has a jack for your headphones; audio through the remote doesn’t seem affected.

IncipioBud

Not as fancy as the bundled iPod shuffle dock, but just as effective.  While we love our tiny li’l iPod shuffle, the way it connects to our Macs betrays its ultracompact design - you have to use a USB dock with a cable. The IncipioBud doesn’t do anything fancy, but that’s why we like it so much. It’s a basic USB connector for the iPod shuffle. No fancy iPod shuffle stand, no cables, no fuss, no muss. It’s a lot easier to carry around than the cable that comes with the shuffle. You’ll barely notice the IncipioBud in your pocket.

Magnifico Plus: First Look

This screen magnifier does the job, but costs a lot and wants you to put Velcro on your iPod.

We Have an iPhone!

At least that's what we thought when we opened the package we got in the mail.

iSkin Cerulean F1: First Look

 As I write this, I'm listening to 311's "Large in the Margin" using iSkin's Cerulean F1 Bluetooth earphones. The Cerulean F1 uses Bluetooth to wirelessly connect between the (whoa, track change - now I'm listening to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's "Bellbottoms." Yup, shuffle's on) earphones and your audio device, which in this case, is an iPod. Since the iPod doesn't have Bluetooth, you need to connect a Bluetooth transmitter. I'm using iSkin's Cerulean TX, part of the Cerulean TX+RX package. (Track change: Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir." Hey Apple, how 'bout getting Led Zeppelin in iTunes?) 

Star Wars: Empire at War

If you're a dyed-in-the-wookie-wool Star Wars fanatic, get ready for real-time strategy fun. If not, well...

Live Interior 3D 1.1: First Look

This interior-design tool may be worth the trouble for multiple jobs, but it's too much of a hassle for one-off use.

Have a few free USB ports on your Mac, or a USB hub? Why not put them to good use and charge up an AA battery?
