Princeton, the web-store responsible for the off-kilter “Invitation to the Innovations” slogan, have a beautiful piece of glass for the iPhone. The iZoom provides 8X optical zoom lens, a tripod, and a screw-in lens mount for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. And, according the the spec, this cheap attachment shoots at F1.1 speed for out-of-focus blurring. For the artistic sniper, this ~45$ attachment may mean the difference between simple head shots and sexy glamour shots. For peeping Toms… well, this lens should do the trick.
Bose has made a few great alarm docks for the iPod since the dawn of the dock port. Now, years later, and with growing competition, they are engaging afterburners by offering a top-tier system for the iPod. The SounDock 10 features a newly designed woofer whose main attraction is a larger magnet which Bose claim will deliver “stronger low notes you’ll notice right away” and good claims that the iPod dock will rival bigger, more expensive systems.
For home audiophiles, B&W have a cooed a soft spot among those who love nothing more than to carve an audiodition into their housing budget in order nest a 50 000$ sound system. But, for those on more realistic budgets (not to mention, iPod fans), the Zeppelin Mini looks to be an extraordinary follow-up to the original Zeppelin which revolutionised iPod dock systems for integration and quality.
One of the biggest gripes with the iPhone 3G (aside from the lack of native copy & paste and running apps in the background) is its relatively poor battery life. Hardcore users who surf, make calls, check emails, listen to music and play one or more of the zillion app store games can hardly get through a day without first worrying about how much “juice” is left on the phone. It’s no wonder then that Mophie, one of the leaders in iPhone/iPod accessories, has stepped up to the plate with the very popular Juice Pack 3G.
