Two-step verification comes to one of our favorite services at long last, while Google finally appears to be paying some attention to its music service. Speaking of music, how's the iPod doing?

After six years of cases, keyboards and camera lenses, I figured I had seen every iPhone accessory there is. Over the years, I've tried more stands, cable organizers and styluses than I care to remember, but I've pretty much abandoned them all. It's not that they didn't perform as advertised, they just never seemed to be around when I actually needed them. I tend to travel light — my favorite "case" for the iPhone is AppleCare+ — so I've never really cared enough about any iPhone accessory to let it take up precious pocket space, no matter how well designed. But XiStera might be the first.
