IK Multimedia's Amazing Music Tools for Your iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

For some of you, none of this will be new - but if you're like me and hadn't heard of these impressive products before now, check out these videos...

There are three products that are particularly exciting for musicians/vocalists who own an iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch: the iRig Mic, the iRig, and the iKlip. They also have some impressive software that goes along with these products. Any Laptop Thoughts or Apple Thoughts readers using this hardware or software? What do you think of it? I play bass guitar and sing, but no longer have an amp in my home...so the idea of being able to plug into my iPad and play is really appealing, not to mention being able to lay down a vocal track if inspiration hits!

Tekkeon’s New Dual Port Power Pack, Certified by Apple for iPod, iPhone and iPad, Charges Two Devices at Once

"TekChargeTM MP1860A, a dual port power pack with two USB outputs, simultaneously charges and powers your iPadTM, iPhone®, iPod® nano or iPod® touch, and a second small portable device. With mobile power at your fingertips, this high-capacity, lightweight battery lets you enjoy hours of extended play time on many of your small portable electronic products. Most portable devices are often in need of recharging after a few hours of use. By taking advantage of the TekCharge MP1860A rechargeable lithium ion battery, you can enjoy hours of extended play time on your iPad, iPhone, iPod, mobile phones, smartphones, Zune® and MP3 players, portable routers, e-readers, and other small portable electronic products. As an added bonus, TekCharge MP1860A includes a flashlight so you have emergency light at your fingertips."

Got an iPad or another tablet that needs a hefty bump of juice to charge? The Tekkeon MP1860A might have a uninspired product name, but it offers plenty of power - up to 2.1 amps, enough to charge an iPad or iPad 2. It's also been officially certified by Apple, so you know it will work. The battery holds 4400 mAH of power, which should be enough to recharge several smaller devices and partially recharge the iPad or another tablet device. I'm working on a review of another Tekkeon battery pack and it's quite impressive. Tekkeon really knows their batteries!

What's the "Perfect" Tablet Size for You?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Talk" @ 02:00 PM

"Over the weekend, news leaked of Apple preparing a larger iPod Touch to compete with low end tablets that offer a smaller screen size than the iPad's 10" display. This comes after Steve Jobs has stated a that a 7" tablet isn't the same as a true tablet in a 10" model. Add to that the fact that Samsung has a 10" tablet arriving very soon in the next generation of the Galaxy Tab. It was an inevitable upgrade, but it has me wondering what the "perfect size" for a tablet PC really is. Do companies see the 10" profile being the only answer or are they simply trying to gauge the perfect approach for consumers."

Apple's flat out refusal to make a 7 inch iPad is typical of their "We have the perfect product for you as long as you like it in this size, this colour, and with these features" approach. But if they release a bigger iPod Touch, well, that solves the problem of them not having a bigger iPad yet not having to back-peddle on their statements. I for one would love to see a bigger iPod Touch - 5 inches would be excellent I think.

I'm a huge fan of my iPod touch - we have two in our house now - largely because it's such an amazing educational tool for my 18 month old son Logan. We're purposefully keeping him away from TV and computer use, but with limited iPod Touch use (I'd guess less than 30 minutes per day) he's learnings letters, numbers, shapes, colours, and how to navigate a user interface.

So, survey time! What's your ideal tablet/slate screen size?
