I’ve always thought that hardcore Apple fans were so serious about their dedication to the brand that it’s almost like a religion to them. So when I saw these shrines made for the iPad and iPod nano, I thought they were very appropriate.
Ever since book-inspired iPad covers first appeared, there have been more and more available, including some directly from Moleskine. Personally, I like my iPad covers to do just two things: protect my iPad and double as a stand.
These days, with the heat and the rain, it always makes sense to open up a weather app before you leave home to check out what the temperature will be like. These two new apps are elegant and minimal, easy to use and best of all free.
Are you ready to add a bit of class to your iPad? Then check out this sleeve from Defy Bags, which was handmade in Chicago. It’s a classy way of lugging around your iPad everyday, and it’s made to last for a very long time.
Passive speakers have come a long way since they started appearing, and I have to say that this one does look pretty appealing. It’s basically a solid hunk of wood, but it’s not too big to be unwieldy.
Rugged iPad cases seem to be in demand, and I guess it makes sense since people are taking their tablets all over the place. The LifeProof iPad case is both durable and waterproof, so you won’t be damaging your tech while on your adventures.
Sure, you can put some art on your wall, but how about putting up some LED wall art that’s controlled via your iPad? That’s exactly what Greg Friedland did and I have to say that the results are pretty cool.
Have you ever lost your keys in your apartment? Then, did you end up finding them after searching for hours or days in the most unexpected spot? Then Hone was made for you. These Bluetooth dongles pair up with your iPhone or iPad using a free app and will emit an audible vibration alert when you tap the “Find” button.
I definitely like the iPad sleeves and bags from Hard Graft, and these ones from Mujjo have a similarly pleasing aesthetic. This sleeve is part of Mujjo’s Originals collection, in which you’ll find good looking sleeves for iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks.
There are plenty of cool docks for your iOS devices, but I have to say that this one from RockAppleWood is certainly unique. This dock is even sustainable, and it looks very interesting, since it can dock not just one device, but an iPad and your iPhone/iPod at the same time.
I was talking with a colleague yesterday and we both agreed that we took our laptops out of our homes a lot less since we got iPads. That being said, there’s always a place for a cool iPad and laptop bag, one that lets you store a few things on top of that thin tablet computer.
I’ve longed for a stylus that was actually good for drawing on my iPad, but after many purchases, I’m still not satisfied. What I really want is something that has a fairly fine tip, but can also produce pressure data.
Have you got an old iMac G4 laying around? Well I don’t, but Reddit contributor cwtfozzy bought one and decided that it would make the perfect iPad stand. I have to say that it looks like a match made in heaven.
This is how much technology can coddle us: someone’s come up with a charge and sync device for iOS devices that has built-in LEDs to make it easier to plug it in in the dark. I usually just use my iPhone’s own light or feel which end is which, but why go through such arduous processes when you can buy a solution right?
