When you buy a top-flight tech product like an iPhone or Apple Watch, some of the future-is-now magic can be lost as you plug it into a flimsy plastic docking station. HoverDock isn’t having it, though — hence these sleek, future-ready docks for both iPhone and Apple Watch. Take a look!
Stanley is a bendable, leather-and-felt iPhone stand that thinks different.
Instead of the standard aluminum and white plastic of many an iPhone stand, Distil Union’s Stanley is a soft, approachable bit of gear that will bend into all sorts of positions, letting you set the viewing angle and height of your iPhone with very little effort.
It’s a refreshing alternative to the typical tech common to other stands, a fact that’s gotten the Stanley funded at more than twice the requested amount on Kickstarter.
One of the best parts of modern tech is that you can take it anywhere. Not so great is how much traveling with technology can become complicated by, well, traveling, especially in the car. We’ve rounded up some of the best gift ideas for anyone who likes to get around and stay connected.
Having finally fulfilled its Kickstarter premium rewards with backer MiDocks units, manufacturer Mi has begun selling black and a silver brushed aluminum MiDock on its own web store.
MiDocks by Mi Category: iPhone Docks Works With: iPhone, iPad Mini Price: £34.00 (about $53.00)

For the past six year that I’ve owned an iPhone, not once have I thought about buying a dock. What’s the point?

But the Projectone from Karas Kustoms has changed my opinion on the usefulness of iPhone docks.
Projectone by Karas Kustoms Category: iPhone Dock Works With: iPhone 5 Price: $45
The Projectone is a machined aluminum dock for your iPhone 5 that passively amplifies sound like a megaphone. Its simplistic style and industrial stylings make it one of the best-looking iPhone docks we’ve seen in a while, but is it actually worth its $45 price tag?
