Top Ten Best Selling iPad, iPhone, iPod Accessories for 2011

November 21st, 2011

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift or shopping for yourself, we’ve taken the guesswork out of finding the right accessory for your gadget.  Here’s a list of our top ten best selling accessories for 2011… let the countdown begin.


10. iPad 2 Backbone case

Pure and Simple. This case is the perfect complement to your smart cover, and works hand in hand to provide additional protection for your iPad 2. The backbone case protects your iPad 2 from dust and scratches while still allowing access to all ports. Installation is a snap, and the case comes in several different colors including white and clear.


9. The Handstand 2

Designed with the busy user in mind, the Handstand 2 is the perfect iPad case for someone who is always on the go.  Although similar to its predecessor, the Handstand 2 is designed specifically for the second generation iPad. The iPad is difficult to manipulate and hold with one hand. This durable case makes it easier to use the iPad while carrying it, and is equipped with a handgrip and rotating disc that allow the user to easily change the angle at which you view the device. Your iPad becomes a natural extension of your arm, leaving you one free hand to work the digitizer. It’s no wonder this is a popular item among nurses, teachers, or anyone else who needs to work standing up. Shown here in Black, the Handstand 2 is also available in white and pink.


A flexible and lightweight tripod, the iStabilizer is about as versatile as they come. The legs come out of the box in a tripod shape, but can be adjusted to fold or wrap around almost any object to capture clear and crisp photos and videos anywhere. The iStabilizer switches easily from portrait to landscape mode and works with any iPod touch, smartphone, and even digital cameras.

7Sidewinder for 6GClassic / 5G iPod video

This is the perfect all-in-one accessory for your 6th gen ipod classic or 5th gen video. The hard case features an arm to wrap your headphones around, but easily slides away while your cords are in use. The sidewinder also has a built in screen protector and a retractable kickstand for convenient desktop video watching.  

6Flexi-Gel case for iPad 2

Style meets Functionality with this award winning iPad hard case. The case fits perfectly while leaving access to all ports, and adds little weight/bulk to your iPad. The case has a rubber-like finish to protect it from scratches and makes the device easier to hold onto. Best of all, the Flexi-Gel case is designed to not only be fully compatible with the front smart cover, but is available in coordinating colors.


5. iPhone 4 Bottle Opener Case

This sleek protective case for the iPhone 4 doubles as a bottle opener. Need we say more?

Don’t worry. The case is designed to absorb the shock of bottle opening rather than putting the pressure on the phone itself. The case also comes with a free app that counts the bottles you open, and allows you to play sounds and display pictures every time a drink is opened.

4DODO Case for the iPad 2

Inspired by traditional book binding techniques, this case for the iPad 2 leaves nothing to be desired. The exterior is a black Moroccan cloth, while the soft interior comes in an array of colors. The front cover doubles as a stand and the case has an elastic strap to hold the ‘book’ closed while not in use. Overall, the DODO case is the perfect cover for someone who doesn’t want to substitute style for functionality.

3.  Pogo Sketch Pro

The pogo Sketch Pro is every artist’s dream. The redesigned aluminum tapered body resembles a paintbrush and is longer than most other stylus options currently on the market. It comes with 2 different pro tips for drawing and can be used at any angle with the pro tip design. The stylus has a rubber grip for added comfort and the individual tips can be purchased for easy replacement.


2.  iPad 2 Summit Case

The iPad 2 Summit Case is a two-piece folio type case that protects the front and back of your iPad while adding as little bulk as possible. The exterior of the cover has built in ridges that allow you to use the case as a stand- with 3 different viewing angles- and uses Smart Technology to turn the iPad on/off when the case is opened or closed. The protective interior shell is both durable and lightweight, and is available in other colors too.

1. Trek Sleeve 2011

Our top selling Accessory, this rugged case was designed to keep your 13” Macbook or Macbook Air safe and sound- protected on all 6 sides. The case is equipped with a reinforced handle and removable organizer pouch for your laptop’s wall cord and accessories.

iPhone 4S Echo Problem During Calls Fix

October 19th, 2011

We’ve received several reports of customers having problems with voice echo on their iPhone 4S. The echo does not immediately start during a call, but instead appears anywhere from 2-12 minutes into a call. Multiple iPhone 4S changes and headset changes produce the same results.

The problem appears to be software related.

Temporary Fix

When experiencing the echo, turn the speaker function on and off. This should clear up the issue temporarily and will have to be repeated every time the problem occurs.

Other Possible Fixes (Unlikely to help, but worth a shot)

Disconnect Your Headset
Restart Your Phone
Restore Your Phone

If you’re having similar issues, please let us know the specs on your carrier and models. The problem seems to be independent of size or color at this point, but the more information we have, the better.

** If you restored from a previous backup, please note that in the comments. If you started fresh, please note that as well. If you did restore, please also note what device you upgraded from.
