Crafty iPhone Case

Bekka just walked in and proudly showed me her new iPhone case. It is sporting a cross-stitched heart on the back of it. A customizable, cross-stitchable iPhone case? Yes, please!

I love products that merge technology and craft!

Stilla – a gyroscopic camera

I haven’t seen an app that made me go “wowwweee” in a long time. Stilla just did.

Stilla’s photo results resemble a crystal, a 3D object made of facets blending into each other as you turn it in your hand. You can share these fully interactive 3D objects with everyone online, in the browser, full screen. It works best with the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Firefox. (Yes, in this order.)

Stilla is a modern interpretation of the photo you keep in your wallet. A moment to hold in your hand. See for yourself, go to stil.la and rotate the example photo.

Book Cover Disguise for Your Wireless Router

Here’s a fab tutorial on how to make a Book Cover Disguise for your wireless router.

My iPhone = My Camera

Let’s admit it, you take most of our photos with your iphones these days, right? So, why don’t we then all put a case around it that will make it look like a camera? That’s exactly what SNAP! does.

I realize, this is slightly silly, but in my book, silly is good.

Big Big Pixel

Big Big Pixel makes 8-bit Pixel iphone bumpers and ipad cases. Made me smile.

Spell Tower

Spelltower just had me jump off my office chair! I can’t wait to play this. #currentlydownloading

BLOCT – Wood Tablet Stand

The BLOCT Wood Tablet Stand is the latest product by the fine folks of Design Commission. Bloct represents a fascinating clash of textures. Consider me intrigued.

Cobook | The smart address book for Mac

Last week I sent out a desperate and slightly frustrated tweet about the the most recent Mac OS Address book app. It’s cumbersome to use, and flat out doesn’t work on one of my Macs. I asked about an alternative and @MaxFenton pointed me to Cobook App.

It’s a small widget that lives in your menubar, easily accessible and intuitive to use. It seamlessly syncs with the OS X Address Book, which is what I want, but without having to ever open address book again.

Interesting twist: Cobook also connects to your social network accounts and automatically looks up pictures, companies, phone numbers etc. At this point, I think I like that, but let’s see, over the long run.

Here, try it yourself. Not sure why, but Cobook app is free.

Chef Sleeve

As the iPad has become my regular companion in the kitchen, I give the Chef Sleeve my two thumbs up! Slide your iPad in it and voila, it is protected from spills and greasy fingers.

Moshi Moshi Curve

The Moshi Moshi Curve is a bluetooth powered wireless handset and iPhone dock that has me intrigued. Has anyone tried this?

Space Bar

The Space Bar was built to work with your iMac or Apple monitor and aims to minimize clutter while providing additional USB ports for your computer. After a long day of work, simply slide your keyboard into the designated space below the shelf and store your office miscellany — keys, digital camera, etc. — up top. I like!

I love the Readmill tagline: Welcome to a world of reading.

Hang it on Bondi

Bondi is a handy little holder with lots of personality. With its trendy, flexible and colorful design, Bondi has only one purpose – to hold things.

Hang your cellphone from your work out machine while at the gym, use it to prop a book open, attach it to your stroller or bicycle, or make it hold your iPhone while you follow the Google Maps directions when you drive. The possibilities are endless.

One things for sure, my kids would love this little guy.

Magnus

This Magnetic iPad Stand, called Magnus, is as sleek as it can get. Really pretty.

Dr.Brendan | The iphone Doc

In september of 2010 I discovered iPhone Doc Dr.Brendan. After a quick email exchange and a description of my ‘patient’ we met up in a hotel lobby in Manhattan. 20 minutes later my iphone looked like new. Impressed by his story I wrote a post about him, which apparently sent a lot of new customers his way. Yay! Well deserved!

I luckily didn’t need Dr.Brendan’s services since, until 2 weeks ago, when my husband dropped his new iPhone 4s in water. Outch! I emailed Dr.Brendan and an hour later, Tony, one of his employees was in our living-room, trying to ‘revive Siri’. But there was no heartbeat! He took “Siri” with him and a few days later, we got a call with good news: Siri was alive and kicking! YAY!

During the short visit at our apartment, I learned that Dr.Brendan since has moved his business out of his living-room and opened two stores. And not only that, he has a whole army employees and they now also fix Macs. I was thrilled to hear that as my 2.5 year old iMac at work was giving me a hard time. Tony, a Dr.Brendan employee, came to promptly pick it up the next day and conveniently brought it back a few days later, fixed. Pick-up and drop-off? Yes, please!

Dr.Brendan and his team not only fix iPhones but now also repair pretty much any Apple device, do data recovery, help you set up your network and much more.

I can’t praise Brendan and his team enough. Go check out his site. And if you live either in the East Village or Park Slope, drop by their shop. And no worries, if you don’t live in NYC, you can ship your patient to Dr.Brendan.

Yay for this wonderful entrepreneurial story.

The Wallee Car Headrest

Wallee Headrest Mount for the car made me look. Our iPad usually saves long car rides but I oftentimes end up holding it awkwardly between me and my husband on the armrest. Well, Wallee might save the day. Has anyone of you tried it? Kiddo approved?

Speck iPad Guy

This iPad case geared towards children made me look. I like the fact that the Speck iPad Guy has handles for the kids to grab onto. Anyone tried it?

MUJI Touchscreen Gloves

These MUJI gloves come with conductive material interwoven into the thumb and forefinger so you can operate your device without subjecting your bare hands to the cold! YES!

Peas USB Hub

Now this is a USB Hub I wouldn’t mind having on my desk. Not at all.

Twitter + iOS 5 = YAY!

Twitter is now fully integrated into Apple’s new iOS 5 mobile operating system.

I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw this hand-made Retro Looking iPhone Case.

H-57



This H-57 Rocket USB stick made me chuckle. Wouldn’t mind having it sit on my desk. Not at all.

UPDATE: I feel horrible about posting this, bad taste in hindsight. My apologies to anyone I might have offended with this post.
