Hands-Free iPad Comes at the Cost of Wearing a Ridiculous Shirt

Despite a great level of ingenuity on some companies' parts, finding a useful accessory for your iPad these days is akin to sifting through junk at a garage sale. Syte Shirt, a recent startup, has just entered the peripheral field with an accessory it feels will finally provide a useful casing for the iPad.

Flipper USB Connects Even When Upside Down, a Mix of Clever and Pointless

If you're not particularly observant and are more than a tad stubborn, we can easily see the following scenario playing out: trying to plug your iPod, camera or flash drive into your computer's USB port, while the plug is upside-down. Rather than check why the cable isn't simply sliding into the port, you force it harder and harder until eventually the port, the plug or both are broken. You might...

USB Mailbox Uses Postal Nostalgia to Tell You That You've Got Mail

For those who miss (and can still remember) the quaint thrill of receiving honest-to-goodness snail mail in their mailbox, manufacturer Brando, known for what may be the world's smallest mouse, has made the USB Mailbox Friends Alert.

Any USB Peripheral Is Now a Potential Threat

A group of Canadian hackers have identified and learned to exploit a flaw that allows them to turn any USB peripheral into a sort of hardware trojan horse.

Quirky's New 'Pivot Power' Strip Solves Life's Greatest Riddle

If there's one thing that should've been created a long, long time ago, it's Quirky's new Pivot Power power-strip.

The Best iPhone 4 Cases Reviewed

Every version of the iPhone has its idiosyncrasies, but the most recent incarnation tops them all. "You're holding it wrong" has essentially been Cupertino's answer to those customers experiencing lost reception and dropped calls. The only consistent workaround, it seems, is to use an iPhone case, which prevents you from touching the phone in all the wrong places, and thus from losing reception....

The Best iPad Cases Reviewed, For Bibliophiles and Ballers

Share Apple's newest wundergadget is many things: e-reader, photo viewer and supreme opportunity for retail catharsis. But the iPad is, in fact, still a computer: a hard slab of metal and glass that doesn't exactly warm the cockles of one's heart (and palms). It's a bit heavy, a little delicate and because of its slick surface, not terribly comfortable when you're trying to hold it with one ha...

'Infinite USB' Solves Overloaded Ports by Stacking Cables

For geeks like us, too many gadgets and not enough USB ports is a daily problem. You could just buy one of those USB hubs to remedy this problem, or you could try a brand new approach. Designer Gonglue's innovative product, dubbed 'Infinite USB,' cuts out the middleman (in this case the USB hub) by allowing you to stack USB cables on top of each other when you run out of ports. Wired describes th...

Joby Adds Magnetic Feet to Gorillapod

While the digital revolution has changed the face of photography, itself, camera accessories have remained largely the same since the analog age. Straps are still made of fabric, cases are still plastic, and most mounting accessories still have three rigid legs. Joby made waves in 2006 with its line of Gorillapods, essentially tripods with notched, bendable legs. The unique design let photographe...
