iKlip Grip – multi function iPhone/iPod stand – Nemo Memo
iKlip Grip from IK Multimedia
I nominate iKlip Grip from IK Multimedia for Most Innovative and Versatile iPhone/iPod Accessory of 2015. iKlip Grip is four products in one package at a reasonable price: table top tripod, selfie stick, extension handle, and tripod adapter, in order of probable usage. As a bonus, a Bluetooth remote control shutter release is provided.
The single best feature of iKlip Grip is its most basic, but not immediately obvious, ability to position your iPhone in front of you in stable vertical/portrait orientation. There are hundreds of stands and cases for horizontal/landscape viewing, but very few to none that work in portrait mode. iKlip Grip does both beautifully.

If you are agreeable with in-ear headphone cables looped behind your ears, and if you require a delicious neutral audio response without obnoxious and overpowering bass, then save your nickels and dimes and put these new Flux In-Ear Pro Headphones at the top of your wish list. When they arrive, don’t look at them and try to figure out their quirky physical design. Insert them into your left and right ears, as marked, with cables over and behind, and enjoy the best sound for the money we have experienced.

Almost had another Gaz solo show with no power at Guy’s house for three days, but the power company fixed it just in time! If this had been Guy’s only problem over the last week it would have been no biggie, but this was just the tail end of Guy’s woes and he’s determined to tell you all about it. Gaz sticks to a more normal life (for Gaz anyway), with expensive FaceTime roaming charges, transitioning out of MobileMe, and another great Mac tip for this week.
Big thanks to James Turner for agreeing to step in if Guy couldn’t make it. Find him and all his great WoodPad iOS products at http://www.woodpad.co.uk

I was to find out that John had ideas far grander than simply remote editing and posting of articles and photographs. I love a challenge, and to be able to watch a master like John at work and assist in anyway possible is privilege.

Yeah, we had some stuff to talk about, but it’s mostly just fun stuff since it’s kinda quiet lately. Gaz has a chat about the Liverpool Tweetup that went international with FaceTime to the US from an Italian/Spanish restaurant. It makes sense if you listen. Microsoft wants us to use Windows 8 with everything plus cheese and should you buy an iPad 2 with the the iPad 3 much closer than farther away? And let’s give a great big hand to a rather unusual iPhone case.
