Until the Thunderstorm, the best way to get killer sound when using your iPad was to plug in the very best headphones you had, or maybe send the audio to a set of real speakers, using a cable or AirPlay. But now Belkin’s made it possible to hold a powerful, room-filling set of speakers right in your hand.
We've got an army of Mac minis this week, as Apple opens the gates of Refurbia and gives you all the computing power you need in a little tiny box. We've got a few more surprises under the fold, but really, check out these minis. You just wanna squeeze 'em!
So we can all settle down now that the new year is upon us and we can all get right back up to excited because CES is coming up next week, which means ever so much gear and so many new apps that will make your life simpler, funner, happier, more productive.

As the iPad becomes increasingly popular in the business space, Hammerhead has released a stylish keyboard case that's fitting for the enterprise.
This case has tremendous usage and durability. It's classy on the outside and performance ready on the inside.

Remember when hardcover books had canvas covers? Well, they don't make them like that anymore, and with ebooks rising in popularity you might as well outfit your iPad as an old book. Right? That seems to be the trend. Cygnett's Alumni canvas case for iPad feels exactly like one of those books, and protects your tablet, too.
Griffin's Passport for iPad Foilo turns your iPad into a classy affair.

Inside is lined by microsuede, which feels soft to touch and keeps the iPad screen smudge free. Another strap on the Passport's backside keeps the Folio sealed together.
Whenever I see the word "vintage" on new product, I tend to scoff a little bit. In the case of XtremeMac's Vintage Sleeve for the new iPad, I definitely let out a groan.
