Rich’s Favorite Things: May Edition
The month’s coming to an end and that can only mean one thing at the Tech Report: It’s the May Edition of the Rich’s Favorite things.
Get through the day with ease with this month’s favorite gadgets.
Start your mornings off right with an alarm clock radio that docks your Android phone. The iHome IC50 has a universal port that charges just about any model. And though it might not look as pretty as an iPhone dock, for $60, it gets rid of one more bedside cable.
On your way to work, don’t worry about your bluetooth battery dying out.
You’ll always be ready to take a call with the $70 Griffin Smart-Talk Solar Speaker. Direct sunlight keeps it charged when you need it.
Plus, no need to turn it on or off. A built-in motion sensor detects when you get into your car and connect with your phone.
Be sleek and stylish at work with the Logitech Bluetooth Ultra-Thin Keyboard cover. Priced at $100, it magnetically attaches to your iPad without adding much bulk. The battery lasts for six months on a single charge.
Are you spending too much time at the gym… unravelling your headphones?
Here’s a growing trend, tangle free cables, the SMS Audio Street by rapper 50 Cent are pricey at $120 but sound and look great.
For the budget conscious, Cord Cruncher uses a slip and slide technique to keep control of unwieldy cables for $20.
Finally, once you’ve made it home, unwind with a great book even with the lights out.
Unlike an LCD screen, the $140 Nook Simple Touch With Glowlight is much easier on the eyes. You still get that great paper-like e-ink experience but the screen gently glows so there’s no excuse not to finish that chapter.
Barnes and Noble says it solves the number one issue in the bedroom–bright lights that keep couples from falling asleep.
