Kensington’s integrated Bluetooth keyboard for iPad Air is a delight to use and offers several useful features. Notable is the ability to access the internal battery for emergency use and a magnetic gutter to hold the iPad securely in place.
Looking for something to watch? Vern Seward points out 3 iOS apps that'll help in this week's Free on iTubes. Yidio, Frequency, and Fan TV.
Taotronics CODE Donut Bluetooth 3.0 portable battery powered speaker should be a hit with teens and tweens because it is colorful, unique, and has satisfactory sound with good bass. It includes a microphone, and it allows the user to take phone calls when paired with an iPhone.
The UAG Scout Case for iPad Air provides rugged, full coverage and a built-in stand. An added plus is the oversize buttons. It meets military MIL-SPEC drop standards.

The Voyager Q dock from NewerTech allows you to access a 2.5- or 3.5-inch SATA drive with a Mac (or PC) using a conventional connection, USB, FireWire or eSATA. It's a boon for those moving on from the old Mac Pros or PC towers but want to keep a SATA drive or two active. NewerTech's implementation is very good, but not without some minor issues.
