Hold your tablet with TwoHands II

on Monday, October 21st, 2013

Felix came onto the scene with the MonkeyOh tablet holder, which looked as if a monkey was holding your tablet for you.  It was cute and functional, but it didn’t really fold up nicely to take along in your gear bag.  The TwoHands  holders do; they look a little bit like a giant clothes pin.Read More…

Octa TabletTail Vacuum Dock and WhaleTail Kit for tablets and eReaders review

When I first saw the Octa stand last year, I thought it was cute and whimsical.  Many gadget accessories are very serious and seem to be designed to fit into the most sedate business environment.  When designers do decide to mix it up, it’s often just to offer a brighter color in the same overallRead More…

The BookWedge inflated wedge is, well, a wedge. A wedge that inflates. At this point you know just about everything you need to know about the product, including its website.
