It's cold. You have tunes to listen to. You need the Bluetooth Audio Beanie, a beanie with bluetooth speakers embedded into the cloth. It has a microphone, too, so you can use this beanie for phone calls. You can recharge it through a MicroUSB charging port, also built into the beanie.
The NewerTech NuGuard KX case for iPhone 6 features a two layer energy absorbing shell that's still thin and light and yet meets the U.S. military drop test standard. Included is a three layer screen armor that's only 0.28 mm thick. The grip is excellent, and the Apple logo is revealed. John Martellaro thinks this is a great case.
Pixel Press, makers of Pixel Press Floors, have released an Adventure Time game called Adventure Time Game Wizard. If you (or someone with access to your iPad) are fans of Finn and Jake, this is a chance to tag along with them as they explore a magical sketchbook.
Check out the Neutron S phone and tablet mount. It lets you use the magic of magnets to mount your device. It features a neodymium magnet—that's a rare earth permanent magnet—that's shielded to protect your device.

It retails for $30, but through our deal you can get it for $24.99.
