GripStand 3 / GripBase bundle

When you are out and about, your iPad requires a case or a protective sleeve of some kind. However, when you are home or at the office, your iPad lies unprotected on your desk or coffee table. NewerTech has a great solution for times like these. The GripStand 3 securely contains the iPad (3rd version*), offering excellent protection from scratches or even an occasional drop as it is lined with a rubbery foam to cushion blows.

Bracketron’s Twist360 has four spring clips to securely grip the iPad (as well as many other tablets and e-readers). With the device attached, the iPad can be propped up on a table or other flat surface. The 4-inch ring on the back can be adjusted to a comfortable viewing angle. This ring also rotates so that the iPad can be viewed horizontally or vertically. It is encased in silicone so it doesn’t slide and it also serves as a comfortable carrying handle.

NuCube Vertical Stand for Mac mini
Review

On March 26, 2012, in Mac mini, Review, Stand, by Russ Walkowich

NuCube Vertical Stand
Company: Other World Computing
Price: $35.99 MSRP

When I purchased a new 2011 Mac mini several months back, it replaced an older Mac that had to sit on the floor under the desk in my office at home. The new Mac mini was definitely smaller size-wise and was now proudly sitting on top of my desk. The one thing I soon discovered was that with everything else that I had on my desk, even the Mac mini was eating up space.

The HandStand iPad Case
Review

On May 19, 2011, in Cases, iPad, Review, Tablet, by Mike Breed

The HandStand iPad Case
Company: Hub International, LLC
Price: $49.95 USD for all models

There are times when I wish I had another hand when working with my iPad. Let’s face it, it’s pretty tough to multitask while trying to hold onto an electronic device that cost upwards of $500. I have no desire to risk breaking it. Hub International may have the answer to the problem of how to hold your iPad securely while trying to grab a cup of coffee or do other work while holding onto your iPad. The HandStand is an novel idea in iPad cases that becomes an extension of your arm as you work.

Keyboard Slip

Macally’s innovative BTKeyMini is a combination Bluetooth iPad keyboard with a stand that doubles as a protective cover shell for the keyboard. Jackie Richards thinks the stand could be less severely upright in its sole position, or somehow variable.

Jackie keeps her iPad in an iFrogz rubber sleeve that needs to be removed for the iPad to rest in Macally’s BTKeyMini stand. She doesn’t like having to slip this rubber cover off and on. Jackie was “very leery” of this stand, but she likes the way it covers and protects the Macally iPad Bluetooth keyboard.

Review – mStand

On December 18, 2008, in Book Review, Macbook, by Russ Walkowich

mStand
Company: Rain Design

Price: $49.90 ($5 off special pricing- $44.90 through December 25th)
http://www.raindesigninc.com

I’ve been using my MacBook (late 2007) more and more lately but I found myself getting tired and the edge of my palms getting sore from the sharp edges of the MacBook. I put a foam wrist rest up against the edge of the MacBook and that alleviated a lot of the problem but I wasn’t satisfied as I still found myself looking down at the display. Now with all the typing I was doing, I found myself stretching, getting up and moving around more before I resumed typing. Rain Design and their mStand to the rescue.

Made from one piece of aluminum, Rain Design’s ergonomically designed laptop stand is stylish, solid and built for the MacBook and MacBook Pro, though it will take any other laptop if you happen to use another manufacturer’s laptop. (Trust me, as I actually used it with a Dell laptop,not mine, to test it out) The mStand is designed to match up with the sand blasted and anodized look of a MacBook or a MacBook Pro but it still looks great with an older white or black MacBook. The mStand is tilted which brings the screen up about 6 inches and now allows one to view the screen on a more level height than just resting it on a desktop or your lap. You don’t feel as tired when you are working with it as you do when the laptop is down lower.
