Macally BT keyboard

I am a recent new owner of an iMac with a 21″ screen (replacing an old PC laptop). This Mac has its place on my desk next to my iPad, my printer, and in front of my 26″ television. I had a wired, full-sized keyboard for the Mac and a smaller, Bluetooth keyboard for the Pad, leaving very little room for mouse travel, note taking, and other desk tasks.

Lepow Moonstone 6000 (comes in several attractive colors)

Just Mobile Gum++ (comes in black, white, and silver)
$90

Powerocks Stone 3 (white only)

Portable USB battery chargers are getting smaller, smarter, and better looking. Everyone needs at least one when you are away from AC or USB power sources, and when the power grid in inaccessible.

Lepow’s 6000mAh Moonstone is gorgeous, priced to sell, and has both a standard and a quick charge output port. Just Mobile’s 6000mAh Gum++ is tiny, with one output.

iFlash LED Flashlight

Review by Suzé Gilbert
iFlash LED Flashlight
Gadgets and Gear
$34.99 US

When Apple launched the iPhone 4 with an LED light, I was envious as that feature was lacking on my iPhone 3GS. Photographs on my iPhone 3GS were often dark and unsalvageable. That problem is no longer applicable thanks to a nifty LED device by Gadgets and Gear.

The iFlash is a small (.75″ W x 1.75″ L) LED light that can be used for a flashlight or as a flash for the iDevices. It is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod Nano 3, 4, 5, iTouch 1, 2, 3, 4, and the iPad 1 and 2. The device does not require batteries as it derives its power from the iDevice. It did not drain my iPhone battery substantially. The iFlash contains a tiny, high efficiency capacitor to protect against a power overload.
