The third-generation iPod Nano is pretty and entertaining all on its own, but there are plenty of accessories out there to make it even more stylish, fun, and personal. The first step is to replace those stock Apple earbuds--they're not doing you any favors. A good place to start is with CNET's Best 5 headphones. Once your music is pumping through some comfortable, quality earphones, check out this roundup of skins, speakers, cases, and more, most of which are made specifically with the Nano in mind.
So, you've managed to get your hands on one of the world's most popular MP3 players, the Apple iPod Shuffle. Accessorizing the littlest of iPods presents a special challenge because it doesn't share the same dock connector as its larger siblings. But that doesn't mean it should be left out in the cold, sad and caseless. To that end, I've rounded up a handful of that will work perfectly with both the second- and third-generation Shuffles. Check 'em out.
There are many things that don't interest me at all as a blogger. I couldn't care less about the newest version of your product. I just don't. Unless you're Apple, in which case I care because I worship you. :-)
But for the PR people who want to find space on this blog, please send me case studies. I love hearing how customers are using software. The customer is always right, so even if I don't personally dream about your company/client every night, if a customer does, I want to know, and I'd … Read more
Well, sure, there are accessories, but I want the iPhone 3G! Don't you?
You are not alone. I've been to many AT&T and Apple stores over the last few days--the furthest of those being in Sacramento. (I live in the Bay Area and went there to visit some friends over the weekend.). At each AT&T store I was told to wait for more stock, and at every Apple store I got discouraged by the long line and withdrew. It's crazy.
Now, I can't help but wonder why Apple is doing this. Obviously … Read more
Now that you've gotten your iPhone 3G, it's time to get some accessories for it.
Digital Life Outfiter (DLO) didn't wait for long and has just come out with a slew of stuff that you can use to protect, carry, and enhance your iPhone 3G. Most of them work with the original iPhone and the iPod Touch, too.
To keep your iPhone from scratching or bumped around if dropped, you can choose either the HybridShell ($24.99) that's bulky yet stylish, or the VideoShell ($19.99), which is clear and sturdy. Of course, you can get … Read more
Those who are familiar with Japan's Strapya will undoubtedly remember any number of its bizarre products, which usually come in the form of some misguided cell phone accessory. But there's actually a more serious side to the company, believe it or not, one that involves environmentally friendly products.
Inventor Spot speculates that these cases may reflect a new green awareness among younger … Read more
Orbino is single-handedly trying to prove that there are better ways to design a MacBook Air case than the much-copied inter-office envelope look. Only a few months ago the Italian designer came out with its "Arista" series of bags for Apple's runway-model-thin laptop, and now it's introducing yet another case.
The "Aria" seeks to complement its beauty with brawn, made from both premium leather and "sculpted anodized aluminum frame." (There's apparently something about aircraft-grade aluminum that goes hand in hand with luxury products.)
It's a form-fitting case that hugs the … Read more
She's been known to design her own tennis outfits and has been reportedly involved in the production of her Prince tennis racket. Now, the Russian tennis star is working with Sony Ericsson to launch a collection of four mobile phone accessories for women. These include a Courtside Case (IDC-31), Exercise Case (IDC-32), Party Bag (IDC-33), and Travel Wallet (IDC-34). See photos of them here.
Unveiled at an exclusive fashion show in London, the Maria Sharapova Design Collection is the first collaboration campaign between the Russian tennis star and Sony Ericsson since the mobile phone company signed a four-year agreement … Read more
New iPhone accessories seem to come out daily, if not hourly, but the timing of this particular case seems a bit odd because it's made by Christian Dior. The venerable design house unveiled its own mobile handset only weeks ago, making a fair splash with a high-end model that will go for an estimated $26,000.
That type of fearless (read: insane) pricing probably helps explain why this rather plain-looking pouch--pardon us, the "Dior Homme iPhone Holder"--is listed at $450, according to Luxurylaunches. It's a good thing that the iPhone needs only one case, unlike … Read more
It's nice to see that someone is showing a little originality when it comes to cases for the MacBook Air. Until now we thought all of them would be some form of the inter-office envelope look, with the only variation being the occasional cowhide option.
Granted, Vaja's "Ivolution Leather Suit" does take the bovine route as well, but it's distinctly different from other models in some basic ways. Namely, it's meant to stay on at all times, hugging its charge like a wetsuit while allowing it to breathe through mesh vents sewn into the … Read more
