Kribbitt iPad and Tablet SupportCrib It With Kribbitt

T
HERE are many different tablet and iPad stands out there, all competing for your dollar. One cool number comes from Mill Bay, British Columbia, and is the invention of Paul Carmichael. He calls it the Kribbitt iPad and Tablet Support Stand. The Kribbitt helps you steady your tablet on your table, especially on unbalanced surfaces, and without scratching. Itís pliable enough to cradle your iPad securely with its latex-free rubber grip. No table? No problem. This support device will grip your leg when youíre sitting or lying down. It comes in five colors: blue, black, silver, pink and green, and fits all tablets 5.5 inches and up. I asked where Kribbitt originated. "Crib it," Carmichael explained. "Put your iPad/tablet in the crib where it is safe and secure." He added that he has several new products and accessories coming soon under the Kribbitt brand. Get your Kribbitt from the designer for $39.94 at http://kribbitt.com.

Find Forgotten Items

W
E all have senior momentsóat least I do. Best way to track that misplaced set of keys or bag or DVR remote is to pair it with an iFi Smart Tag. Simply attach the Smart Tag to anything you donít want to lose and activate it with an Apple or Android app. If youíre within 30 feet of your lost object, the Smart Tag acts as a pager via Bluetooth to alert you on your smart phone. If youíre outside the 30-foot perimeter, iFi will sound an alarm. It will also email you via a Google map of the tagís last GPS location and time. Priced from $20 to $35.
