We found a unique and modern german-designed iPad stand today that we really like. It’s called the iPad Butler Alu-Floor Stand and comes from the traditional German company, Vogelsang Engineering. We like the look of this clever deluxe stand for a range of applications. This could be a useful stand for a mobile kiosk check-in at medical offices or a product demo area in showrooms. What a statement of modernity when you enter the waiting room at instead of signing in with pen and paper you tap on the iPad Butler station.
This iPad Butler stand is made of aluminum and was originally designed for use in the living room. This iPad accessory has a flexible gooseneck that can be rotated in all directions so that you (screenshot and video below the break) Continue reading
Everything about an iOS device is high performance except for the earphones. I don’t like the standard issue earbuds from Apple. Don’t get me wrong, they are well designed and basic. But for the audiophiles out there you know we are always needing to upgrade our sound.
We found some affordable high quality great sounding earphones called Ultimate Ears 500vi, which was acquired by Logitech. I really like the sleek design and the color black is a nice change from the standard issue white iPod-like earbuds. I own another quality set of earphones from Etymotic (ER23-HF3), that I’ve used with my iPad 2 and iPhone 4. I like the Ultimate Ears 500vi much better overall. The Etymotic sound was great but I was never happy with the earbud design and often had to give my ear canals frequent breaks. I overpaid for the Etymotic ER23-HF3 earphones,then around $150. The Ultimate Ears 500vi retails for much less ($80) and the best price Continue reading
I met for a business appointment recently outside of a Starbucks. The traffic noise was normal and we could converse but when it came time for the presentation the presenter whipped out an odd looking iPad stand called the Bone HORN iPad 2 Stand. Once I got over the funky design of this iPad 2 stand I realized it was a speaker amplification system as well. The Bone HORN is a silicone adapter that fits on the bottom of an iPad 2 tablet and implements some acoustic science to amplify the sound from the built-in speakers. The video that the presenter played outside Starbucks would have been difficult to hear without her accompanying speaker system. The cleverness of this funky little iPad stand and speaker combo is how it delivers sound naturally without any need for battery or electrical power. This iPad accessory stand offers both portrait or landscape orientations. The Bone HORN iPad stand is pretty unique and a useful iPad accessory for the right setting. This iPad 2 stand is priced at $29.95 from CyberGuys and comes in multiple colors (Black, Grey and Pink). (Video demo is below the break) Continue reading
