Mi-Stylus works on iPad and iPhone

Posted in iPad accessories,iPhone Accessories by Shane McGlaun on May 13th, 2010

I have had an iPhone for a long time now and there are some days when I still wish I had a stylus for touching small links and keys on the screen. I have used a stylus before that was designed to work on the iPhone, but it was too large for good accuracy.

A new stylus has launched called the Mi-Stylus that has a tip made form a composite that will work on the screen of the iPhone and iPad. The flat tip is great for touching larger icons and buttons while the edge is good for smaller keys.

James Bond 007 iPad decal

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2010

Here’s a fun iPad decal to spice up your new iPad. The James Bond 007 iPad decal. Not that Bond would actually use an iPad for anything stealthy, it’s just too big. But if you are a Bond fan, it’s the perfect way to decorate your device.

This one was made as a special order by Etsy seller Decalville for one of his customers. If you ask nicely maybe he’ll make one for you too for $7.00 each. Apparently Pierce Brosnan is the only Bond you can get.

Posted in DIY,iPad accessories by Shane McGlaun on April 16th, 2010

It’s nice to see geeky parents starting their little geeklings off early on tech. My kids really like my iPad but agree it’s a pain to look down at the screen. One 10-year-old boy from Jersey decided to make his own iPad stand.

The stand is made from a couple chunks of wood, a hinge, and a couple drawer knobs. All of the materials are said to cost about $13.

iPad Camera Connection Kit to offer USB Audio Output?

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

Right now this is still a rumor, so take it with the usual grain of salt. There is speculation that the iPad Camera Connection Kit might allow USB audio output, since it’s offering you a USB port. If true, it’s an interesting development.

It might even allow you to connect some useful devices to the iPad. It also might allow you to charge your USB devices from it, like your Mifi. Then again, we are just dreaming right now. We’ll see what happens.

The Photoshell is a case made to look like a picture frame that accommodates 5 x 7 inch photos. The case is made from a smooth rubberized plastic. So go on and display your photos, logos and signs, whatever.

Yesterday we told you about the most expensive iPad stand we’ve seen for $130. Now here’s the cheapest one we’ve seen. It’s actually a $0.69 business card holder from Office Depot. Would you trust your $500+ iPad on this thing?

If it holds it securely, there’s really no reason not to. It works well enough for Andrew Devigal, multimedia editor for The New York Times:

You’ve already spent quite a bit on your iPad, but you aren’t done yet. If you haven’t yet bought a stand, you might want something along the lines of this luxury iPad Stand. The Joule is made from solid aluminum and has an adjustable tilt angle with three settings.

Another benefit is that it’s very sturdy. It’s the first iPad stand that guarantees no movement when using the iPad’s touch screen. The Joule is available now for a hefty $129. Is it worth it? You be the judge.

The iPad LapDock

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2010

Every tablet needs the perfect keyboard accessory that can also function as a hard case right? Well, some folks have built just that for the iPad. It’s called the LapDock, and it’s goal is to replace the laptop with the tablet. Yeah, let them dream.

The LapDock is basically just a carved wooden case for your iPad and Apple Bluetooth keyboard. If only there were more connectivity options, they just might be onto something here. Still, it is a cute case.

NewPCgadgets security case for iPad

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2010

You spent a lot on that new iPad, so you better keep it secure. And to do just that NewPCgadgets has introduced a new Security Case for the iPad. Now you can lock up that iPad and prevent others from using it without your permission.

This is the first locking case for the iPad and makes it look all businessy rather than stylish in my opinion. It’s available in black leather for $44.95. But looking at that design, I’m not sure it will keep any determined person away from your iPad for long.

idisplay app turns your ipad into a wireless monitor

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2010

Here’s an interesting iPad app that turns your iPad into a secondary monitor. Shape Services iDisplay connects your iPad to your Mac desktop and lets you wirelessly extend your screen onto your iPad’s display.

It will also work on the iPhone, but I’m not sure why you would want to use your iPhone for this. Right now it’s version 1.0 product, so I’m sure they have some bugs to work out, but the users who have problems are using iPhones. It’s a great idea.

iCade mini arcade cabinet for iPad

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

If nothing else has sold you on the iPad, this thing here sure makes it tempting. The iCade turns your iPad into a mini arcade cabinet. It’s one thing to play an arcade game on your iPad, it’s another to slide that iPad into the iCade and relive the good old days. In miniature size anyway.

The iCade will cost you $150. Pretty awesome. Overpriced, but then many say that about the iPad too. You decide. We like it.

If you want to import your photos onto your iPad then you’ll be happy to know that Apple has finally put the iPad Camera Connection Kit up on the Apple Store. You’ll be able to stare at pics of little Billy blowing out his Birthday candles or little Sally petting a goat at the farm. Whatever floats your goat, I mean boat.

The camera kit is only $30, but you’ll have to wait a bit as it ships in late April. But after that, you have a nice fancy digital photo frame.

Quirky Cloak Apple iPad case

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

As the Apple iPad launch date gets closer, more accessories are becoming available. Mostly frames with kickstands. This latest accessory is the oddly named Quirky Cloak. It’s designed to look sleek and protect your iPad at the same time. It’s made from non-slip rubber and has a durable plastic hinge on the edges.

The iPad loads into the top of the case and once inside is held firmly in place by a friction grip. The Quirky Cloak is designed so that the iPad can sit on a surface in landscape mode, or stand up with a kick stand in portrait mode.
