OPUS Universal Device Stand with Sound Amplifier

we must have seen tons of stands for iOS and Android devices, and dozens of them dealing in natural amplification, but hardly any that can actually claim as one-size fits all and by all, we do mean nearly all devices – ranging from smartphones to tablets. this is where the OPUS Universal Device Stand with Sound Amplifier shines. first off, we are most certainly impressed by the accessory when not in use: they kind of looks like the yin-yang thing where two halves come together by the force of magnet, making it one handy ball-like form for easy storage and transportation. when ready to use, just pull the black and white stand apart, mount them on each end of your device and your device is all set for video chat, surfing the net, or watching movies. the stand is design to provide optimal viewing angle and doubles as a natural amplification for your device. one side offers natural amplification of your device’s speaker, while working in conjunction with the other half to prop up the device.

when games start appearing on mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads, it was a welcome addition that would eliminates our boredom while we are on the road. as it evolves, our favorite arcade games became available on iOS devices which we dived into it eagerly but as time goes by, we realized we wanted something more. we became frustrated with tiny screen, the lack of two-player capability without some struggling and most importantly, the lack of the good old tactile feel that we missed so dearly.

iDevice users has a common problem: breakage of the Apple’s 30-pin connector cable after certain period of usage. the MYSAVER, started out as a Kickstarter project, aims to save your original Apple cable from meeting such an early decommissioning. It is a simple device that attaches to your original Apple cable’s ends (the USB and the 30-pin) that prevent them from ever breaking. simple as that. no frills, no gimmicks, just plain protection for your much treasured original Apple cable. perhaps, applicable for those swear by the originals. however, such protection doesn’t come cheap. it will set you back at $24.99 a set but then again, it wouldn’t probably save much more in long run. though I have to say that the breaking part doesn’t really bother me much as long as it is still functional. it’s your call.

among the sea of sound docks in the market that looks pretty serious, there are some like the Speakal iHog that offers a touch of cuteness. conjuring up iDocks with adorable appeal is not new to the California-base Speakal, having previously launched iPig, iPanda, iBoo and the likes. when Speakal wants to built something bigger based on the hugely successful iPig, naturally, they call it iHog. based on the iPig but larger in physical size, the iHog sports a few tweaks and of course, a slight upped in power output, thanks to its five drivers, including two tweeters and two sound diffusers, plus a down-firing subwoofer that give it an additional 20-watt of low-frequency thumping sound. also onboard is what Speakal dubbed as “super amplification stereo system”, resulting in a 28-watt of output.

it is proven that we use our iPhone for everything and that result in an shockingly short battery life which this Mophie Juice Pack Reserve should be able to address. portable chargers are a dime a dozen, so why Juice Pack Reserve? perhaps it is because this nifty package comes with a keyring, doubling it as a keychain and if that’s not enough, its minimalist good look and 700 mAh of juice should warrant some consideration. tell me how many portable chargers out there look this good and let you latch your keys on?
