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.
The Moshi Moshi Curve is a bluetooth powered wireless handset and iPhone dock that has me intrigued. Has anyone tried this?
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!
(Thank you Kevin)

I love the Readmill tagline: Welcome to a world of reading.
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.
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.
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?
This wooden kids ‘laptop’ i-Wood made me chuckle. I am tempted to get one and use it during a meeting. No better way to poke fun at all the people hiding behind their laptops.
(thank you Larissa)
For all of you people missing ‘that cursor feeling’ when using your touch devices, there is help: BIG BIG CURSOR.
(I couldn’t help but chuckle at this product idea. No, I won’t buy it, but it made me smile.)
Considering that my 18month old son likes nothing more than launching my iphone across the room, this 80s Cell Phone case might be just the right case to protect it.
I am not all that serious, of course, but it definitely made me laugh.
Talk about old meets new: This Recycled Mail Sack iPad Case is making quite a statement. I like it.
