  • Apple Wireless Keyboard

    There are literally hundreds of wireless keyboards out there for the iPhone and iPad, but no matter how many I try, I keep coming back to the Apple Wireless Keyboard. It seems to tick all the right boxes for me. It's light, slim, compact, stylish, robust, and very comfortable to use … a feature overlooked on many keyboards.

    Also, the two AA batteries last for months, which is a real bonus.

    Price: $69.00

  • Jawbone Icon HD

    The Jawbone Icon HD is the best, clearest, most comfortable, and easiest to use Bluetooth headset I've used.

    Call clarity is taken care of by the military-grade NoiseAssassin 2.5 noise-cancellation and wind reduction technology. The built-in 10mm wideband speaker allows you to privately listen to music, podcasts, YouTube videos, sports, phone calls and more, all in full-spectrum, HD-quality sound.

    To top all that off, the Jawbone HD supports a whole range of downloadable apps and voices. 

    Price: $99

  • Belkin TuneCast Auto Live

    If you're going to carry around your entire music collection with you wherever you go, it makes sense to be able to access that resource when you're on the move. One place where it's great to have access to your tunes is when you're in the car. If your car stereo isn't equipped with Bluetooth, then the easiest way to pipe your tunes from your iPhone to your car stereo is by using an FM transmitter.

    By far the best FM transmitter for the iPhone that I've used is the Belkin TuneCast Auto Live. Featuring ClearScan technology, it can scan for the clearest FM frequency for you to use. The optional iPhone app can be used to recommend the best frequencies for you to use as you travel. TuneCast Auto Live is also the only FM transmitter with GPS-assisted frequency scanning, allowing for the best audio quality when you drive.

    As an added bonus, this device will keep your iPhone's battery charged up while you use it, so there's no need for a separate car cord.

    Price: $69.99

  • iPad Smart Cover

    In regards to the iPad Smart Cover, as my wife calls it the 'Not So Smart Cover', if you accidentally pick up the iPad by the cover, the magnets are not strong enough to keep the two connected and the iPad will drop. In my case the iPad screen cracked and was no longer operational. I thought I was a careful person, but obviously not enough for this case.
