Tech Tuesday on Sirius/XM PGA Tour Radio for 9/24/13 - New iPhone Accessories and the App of the Month
* TOPICS - The new iPhones went on sale last Friday... Rick takes a look at some of the new accessories available and the "App of the Month"
Have a listen to the frivolity:
1. Cases Made By Apple
5C - A colorful mesh-style plastic case. This costs $29 and comes in the same five colors as the phone itself, so you can either match the phone or mix it up with a secondary color. There's also a black option if you want to tone things down a bit
5S- Made of leather on the outside and protective microfiber on the inside, and come in softer colors like yellow, peach, etc for $49
2. Book Book iPhone Wallet Case $59
It's a case, it's a wallet - all in one
It’s the best implementation of a wallet/case combination I have seen, especially now that it has a camera hole for the iPhone 5 model. While there are many case/wallet combos on the market, and I have tried quite a few, the BookBook remains my favorite because it’s rugged, stylish and has a place to carry cash.
3. Pivot Power Mini Outlet Adapter - $24.99
A wall adapter with a plug for everything.
Only the newest homes these days come with built-in USB adapters in the wall. Our outlets simply weren’t designed for the type of power-hungry lives we all lead today. (Our descendants will wonder how we lived.) Enter this handy little adapter that doubles the plugs of any outlet it encounters and adds two USB ports. Great for an office, bedroom, kitchen or for throwing in your travel bag.
4. PhotoJoJo iPhone Lenses $20-$50
PhotoJoJo Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angle and Macro Lenses are like pro-lenses for your phone!
Each is crafted out of solid aluminum and outfitted with thick, high-clarity glass. They’ve been factory tested by hand and inspected to ensure the utmost optical perfection.
How it works: each set comes with adhesive removable metal rings. The ring sticks to the back of your phone, and the Photojojo Lens attaches magnetically. Snap it on and off in an instant!
We've also included two extra-strong rings specially designed for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 (they stick to glass and won't block the flash or back mic).
5. The Armpocket - for Fitness Buffs $29.95
You can comfortably and confidently carry your essentials, including your phone and case. Multiple inside compartments guard your valuables and a low-profile audio port lets you easily and securely connect your headphones. Great for the gym, school, shopping or traveling — anytime you need a dry, hands-free, secure and comfy carrying solution.
This model features two head-phone outlets, one on the bottom left and one on the bottom right, compatible with all phones including iPhone 5/5S/5C.
