Take a Stand

On May 22, 2012, in Macbook Air, Review, Stand, by Rich Lefko

Take a Stand.

If your home office is anything like mine you never have enough desk space. When I finally get around to clearing things off my desk it doesn’t take very long before new things appear. Sometimes I think empty space on my desk becomes magnetic and attracts new stuff that accumulates. My problem is where do I put my MacBook Air, iPad, and iPhone, when I get home from work or travel? Maximizing the desk space you have is key to getting the most use. Laying my MacBook Air, or iPad flat takes up a lot of valuable space. So why not stand them up?

Here are products that might help you reclaim some of your valuable desktop space.

For your MacBook Air:

BookArc for MacBook Air
Company: Twelve South
Price: $39.99

The BookArc is an aluminum stand that holds your MacBook Air (MBA) in a closed upright position. The slot that holds your MBA is covered in soft silicon and is a snug fit as you slip your MBA into the slot.

NAJA for 3g iPod nano

On September 2, 2008, in iPod Nano, Review, Stand, by Rich Lefko

NAJA for 3g iPod nano
Thought Out

Price: $29.99
http://thoughtout.biz/NAJA

The NAJA (pronounced NaHa) is a unique iPod nano holding system. Was it of any value? Read on to find out what I thought of the NAJA.

The NAJA is a soft flexible coil with a bracket at the top to hold your iPod nano. The idea is to use the NAJA to hold your nano rather than hold your nano in your hand – I guess. I’m not really sure?

When you purchase the NAJA you get a 36” flexible coil that can easily be bent into any configuration you can think of. At the end is a holder that you press your nano into.

Ped3 iPhone Stand
Review

On January 30, 2008, in iPhone, Stand, by Tim Robertson

Ped3
Company: Thought Out…

Price: $39.95
http://thoughtout.biz/PED3

I had meant to do a video review of the Ped3 iPhone rotating stand, but with a new baby and loud older kids, plus the holidays and Macworld expo, it seems it was not meant to be. But this product is too cool that I have to at least get a written review posted for it!

First, full disclosure. I know the guy who runs Thought Out, the company behind the Ped3. I have chatted with him often, and I have always wanted him to succeed. That being said, when it comes to reviewing a product, I put all that aside. I cannot let anything to stand in the way of honesty in my review, or any review at MyMac.com for that matter.

FlexPed
Review

FlexPed iPod Stand
Company: Thought Out

Price: $39.99 – $63.99
http://thoughtout.biz

A few podcasts ago, I was talking about how I finally upgraded my car stereo to a JVC model with an audio input mini-jack on the front of the stereo. The reason for this was simple: I wanted to do away with the FM Transmitters I had been using to get my iPod music to play in the car. While many FM Transmitters work well, there is simply no comparison to an iPod connected directly to the stereo for much higher quality music.

The problem I had run into was where to put my forth generation iPod. I was using the docking station that came with the unit, sitting it on my center console, but it was not the ideal solution. First, I had to run two wires to it, and there was no place to mount the base station securely. So my iPod was one quick turn of the steering wheel away from sliding and falling to the floor. Not an ideal situation any way you look at it.

iPed2 Adjustable iPod Stand
Review

On June 29, 2005, in Review, by Tim Robertson


iPed2 Adjustable iPod Stand
Company: Thought Out

Price: $39.99
http://thoughtout.biz/iPed2.htm

One of the first iPod accessories that came to market once the iPod was released was an iPod stand. When a buyer spends as much money for an iPod as they do, laying it flat on your desktop is not the ideal way to treat it. There have been many, many iPod stands released over the last few years, but I think my search for the perfect stand may be over.

The iPed2 is a solidly built metal stand that can be adjusted for any iPod model, including all four generations of full-size iPods, as well as the iPod minis. (The company also makes an iPed for the iPod shuffle) It will work even if your iPod is in a case or skin, a useful feature that some iPod stands cannot boast.

iPed Shuffle
Review

On June 29, 2005, in iPod shuffle, Review, Stand, by Russ Walkowich



iPed Shuffle
Company: Thought Out

Price: $17.99

http://www.thoughtout.biz/shuffle.htm

Being new to the iPod game, I decided to start off with the 1 gig Shuffle. Now when I went to charge it, I wound up plugging it into the back of my G4 which resulted in me losing an open USB port. Not the way to go for most users, for sure.

Into the picture comes Thought Out’s iPed Shuffle, providing iPod Shuffle users with an alternative to having to become a contortionist to plug their Shuffle into the back of their Mac. Constructed of 11 gauge formed Alloy Steel, the iPed Shuffle is simplicity in design. White, of course, to match the Shuffle, the iPed Shuffle presents a very nice image when sitting on your desk awaiting your Shuffle.
