Wi-Gear has a new product on the market called iMuffs. It answers a need that more than one person has wished for. It offers wireless headphones for your iPhone, iPod, and other Bluetooth phones. It also has controls built in that let you pause, change volume, skip tracks, and seek music right from the headphones.
When an incoming call comes in, the phone will connect and ring through the headphones, allowing you to talk through the integrated microphone and when the call ends the headphones will switch back to music. It charges through a USB port or with a travel charger that is included. The MSR is U.S. $149.
Haptique MacBook Case
I noted in an earlier session that there were dozens of booths that features cases for iPods. The same held true for laptops. One of the more noteworthy was the Uniea booth. One of their featured products was the Haptique hard shell case for the MacBook Aluminum. It fits like a glove, is made from hard plastic, yet feels like suede on the outside and the interior is soft to protect the surface of your Mac. It comes in black, white, pink, blue, green, and orange. The MSR is U.S. $49. This is a very nice product.
