iDeck (v.2) is a must-have for cars with tape decks

You’d be surprised how many people still sport cassette decks in their cars. And options for iPhone music can be limited for these users. Sure, there are BlueTooth accessories or FM transmitters that make wireless tuneage possible, but some people would just rather have a stable, jacked-in connection. That’s why newer vehicles and car radios have auxiliary…

iFlash adds a first (or second) LED Flash to your iDevice

I know what you’re thinking – what is the point of this accessory? The iPhone 4 already has an LED flash (that is, for those of us who choose to use it. Of course, some of us prefer to go this route instead). But what if you’re sporting a 3G, 3GS or iPod Touch 4 sans camera flash? Or you just want a second light for your iPh4? Well then, here’s an…

Engadget: ThinkGeek’s TK-421 keyboard sucks

Sadness. Despair. Why, oh why isn’t there a decent iPhone keyboard?? If you’re okay with touchscreen typing (or “thumbing”), then that’s cool. But I’m one of those people who likes a hardware keyboard. (It’s one of several reasons why, if the iPhone didn’t exist, I’d probably be an Epic 4G user – great hardware, cool OS plus a physical QWERTY = one…

The Fingerist: An iPhone guitar — for reals

As far as iPhone/iPod Touch accessories go, there’s a diverse world of accoutrements to turn that device into almost anything you want. And the range of selection gets broader all the time – from sexy cases and practical docks to facepalm-inducing, “Are you kidding me?” examples of wackiness. Well, this next one hits on all points of the spectrum. Say…

Griffin LightBoard iPad case, app: It’s your kids’ turn

It seems it doesn’t matter what walk of life you’re on, how old, smart, or cool you are, the iPad provides something for everyone. This latest contraption designed by Griffin really goes to prove it. The Griffin LightBoard case is a tough, colorful case that couples protection with a sketch pad for kids. The case itself is made from a polycarbonate…

Cyber Monday deals on iPad and iPhone accessories

Go to the Apple online store today and you’ll be greeted with a “Merry Monday” banner, encouraging you to spend more of your hard-earned cash on kitting out your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Whether it be for you, or as a gift to someone else, some are certainly worth checking out. Although the price drops aren’t staggering, the products are still cheaper…

iPhone tripod: Brilliant, must-have item for iPhotogs

Photogs know that nothing makes a pic lamer than those standard, consumer-grade LED flashes, especially those that are on smartphones these days. And the one on the iPhone 4 is no exception. (Poor iPhone 3G/3GS users don’t even get that without an accessory.) But what can you do when the lighting’s dim? No flash, but blurry pics? No thank you. Enter…

Cam’s iPad gift wish list

The days are growing shorter, colder and darker, that can only mean one thing: Christmas is on its way. So, with Santa due to be forcing his way down my chimney in a month’s time, I thought I’d write up a list of Apple iPad related products that I want, or wish that I could have. It’s a pretty realistic list, so there’s no time travel apps, or universe…

Very first iPhone printer: Bolle BP-10

Need an idiot-proof way of printing from your iPhone? You could try the Bolle BP-10, a device that bills itself as the world’s first dedicated iPhone printer. But for the privilege of owning this unique device, it will cost you quite some cabbage – to the tune of ï»¿£119.99 (~$190 USD). And there’s no wireless with this – it works via dock…
