AluPocket, A Post-Lightning iPhone ‘Dock’

I like the direction iPhone docks are headed in, post-Lightning. It seems that making a dock with the little connector is too hard, or manufacturers have already been stung once by the switch from 30-pin connectors, or that they’ve just gotten sick of paying Apple’s Made For iPhone fees.

The upshot is that they’ve gone back to basics. Instead of making a dock, they’re making things that do the job of a dock. And what is a dock’s job? To hold your iPhone, and to (optionally) charge it.

The Alupocket does both, but it does it on the form of an aluminum taco which is stuck to the wall.

Hang Your Headphones On Just Mobile’s Sculpted Slab Of Aluminum

Sometimes it’s the little luxuries in life that make a difference. Don’t have a place to store your headphones at your desk? You may need Just Mobile’s new HeadStand. Well, you probably don’t need it, but you’ll want it.

Sculpted from polished aluminum in a way that would probably make Jony Ive shed a tear of joy, the HeadStand suspends your plush headphones gracefully in the air.

Just Mobile Alurack: Now Your MacBook Can (Literally) Hang Out With Your iMac

Just Mobile’s new Alurack is a clever solution to the question “Where do I put my stupid MacBook while I’m using it with an external monitor?”

Just Mobile’s Minimal New Stands Will Mount Your MacBook In Style

Just Mobile’s Minimal New Stands Will Mount Your MacBook In Style

The AluRack mounts your MacBook in style and out of sight.

Just Mobile is one of my favorite third-party accessory makers for Apple products. They make beautifully minimal stands, chargers, styluses, and other random accessories for iPhone, iPad and Mac. What makes Just Mobile’s stuff great is that most of their products look like they were designed by Apple itself, and that’s no exaggeration—just take a look at their catalog. It’s all great.

A couple of the newest products to be announced by Just Mobile include the AluBase and AluRack MacBook mounts.

Just Mobile’s Tiny Battery Pack Is Big Enough To Completely Charge Your iPhone

Just Mobile’s Tiny Battery Pack Is Big Enough To Completely Charge Your iPhone

This tiny backup battery is small enough to take anywhere.

“You can’t take it with you.” This is a saying usually uttered by those people who are bitterly jealous of their richer friends' and relatives' success. It refers to the fact that your money is no good when you’re dead.

But it could equally apply to many external battery packs for the iPhone, which you can’t take with you because they’re too big, and you’re not carrying a bag.

Enter the Gum, a tiny 2200mAH battery pack which fits in your pocket, and while it won’t help you in the afterlife, it will help you where it counts: in the actual real world of too-short battery life.

Just Mobile Horizon, A Pretty Much Perfect iPad Wall Mount [Review]

Just Mobile Horizon, A Pretty Much Perfect iPad Wall Mount [Review]

The Horizon will fit into any room.

Just Mobile, purveyor of high-design aluminum objects to the not-so-rich, makes what seems at first to be a pointless little gadget. It’s called the Horizon, and its sole purpose is to let you hang your iPad on the wall. I was skeptical when I received the review unit, but it turns out to be pretty great, and full of Just Mobile’s trademark clever design touches.

The Great New Alupen Pro Stylus Also Writes On Paper [Review]

The Great New Alupen Pro Stylus Also Writes On Paper [Review]

I was a big fan of the Alupen when it launched — so much so that I went out and bought my own. It was chunky, looked like a metal pencil and felt pretty good in my big hands. Then came the Wacom Bamboo stylus and our love affair was over.

Now, though, the newer skinnier, cleverer Alupen Pro has got me two-timing the svelte Bamboo. Why? Because it has a biro built in.

Just Mobile’s Highway iPhone Charger Is A Luxurious Match For Your Car’s Dash [Review]

Just Mobile’s Highway iPhone Charger Is A Luxurious Match For Your Car’s Dash [Review]

The Highway looks great against a black car dash.

I love getting to review products from Just Mobile because I know they will always have excellent build quality. The Highway car charger for the iPhone is no exception. At about $35, the Highway isn’t exactly price sensitive. You’ll be able to find a multitude of cheaper solutions at your local Walmart, but you won’t find anything quite as luxurious.
