GoCare iPhone Insurance Review
GoCare's iPhone insurance program is very comprehensive, in that it covers damage, but also supports unlocked phones, covers data, and offers a loaner phone. Plans run US$39-$165, depending on your iPhone model and length of the policy.

iTunes 7.4 iPhone Ringtone Maker Review
Apple released an iPhone ringtone maker as part of iTunes a few months after the iPhone's release. While the tool itself is good, the rest of the official ringtone process was a hassle.
Boston Acoustics i-DS2 iPod Speakers Review
When it comes to judging iPod speaker docks for the home, there are two major points to consider: sound quality and price. Secondary factors, such as style and extras, also factor into the equation. When judged on all these criteria, the Boston Acoustics i-DS2 iPod speaker dock is a terrific success.
Harman Kardon SoundSticks II review
A review of the Harman Kardon SoundSticks II computer and iPod speaker system
CoverScout iTunes Art Importer Review
Now that CoverFlow is used so widely in iPod products, having album cover art is practically a necessity. But Apple's iTunes art importer tool sometimes misses art or gets the wrong cover. You can add cover art manually, but that can be a lot of work. If you want a faster option, consider CoverScout.
Mophie Juice Pack iPhone Battery Extender Review
IPhone owners are always on the go--and they need a battery that can keep up with them. But the original iPhone didn't have a high-capacity battery. That's something the Mophie Juice Pack iPhone battery extender aims to correct.
2nd Generation iPod Nano Review
A review of Apple's mid-line, affordable iPod model, the nano.
Review of iPodCopy Review, an iPod Backup Program
iPodCopy is a Windows and Mac program that let you copy iPod libraries, backup iPod libraries, or transfer iPod libraries to other PCs.
iGadget 3.6 Review
IGadget does the job of transferring iPod contents to a new computer better than some of its competitors, but its slowness and occasionally difficult processes keep it from being an unqualified hit.
XtremeMac SportWrap iPhone Case Review
The armband case has long been a staple iPod accessory. These cases have accommodated all kinds of iPods, though because of size and weight considerations, the nano or Shuffle is usually the more common iPod seen on exercisers. So, where does that leave the iPhone, which is bigger and as heavy or heavier than any current iPod?
Where to Download iTunes for Mac, Windows, Liunx, and 64-bit
Looking for the latest version of iTunes for Mac or Windows? How about an older version, or something a bit less mainstream, like iTunes for Linux or Windows 64-bit? You'll find the links here.
iCopyBot Review, Software to Transfer iPod to iTunes
With respect to its speed, iCopyBot is pretty impressive: it moves 2.41 GB of songs to iTunes in 10 minutes. Unfortunately, a sparse user interface, middling features, and some buggy behavior drop it to the middle of the pack.
Bigasoft iPod Transfer Review
Bigasoft iPod Transfer isn't an iPod transfer program in the same way as others I've tested. It's more about moving files from an iPod, with iTunes being one of a number of possible destinations. As a result, while it's a solid transfer program, it doesn't offer most of the advanced features its competitors do.
Pod to Mac Review, A Program to Transfer iPod to iTunes
Despite being one of the faster tools I've tested to transfer the contents of your iPod to an iTunes library, Pod to Mac has too many bugs and poorly implemented features to earn it a recommendation.
iPod 2 iPod Review
There's not much to recommend iPod 2 iPod. It's abominably slow, converts filetypes without asking, loses song names, and doesn't offer common features. To make matters worse, it's the second most-expensive program of its kind that I've tested. Look elsewhere.
TuneAid Review: Software to Transfer Music from iPod to Computer
While TuneAid transfers the contents of iTunes libraries reasonably quickly, it lacks many of the more advanced features common to its competitors.
ImToo iPod Computer Transfer Review
ImToo iPod Computer Transfer is speedy and full-featured, but its lack of iPad support and a handful of quirks hold it back from being better.
Iron Man: Aerial Assault App Review
Iron Man was the big box office hit of the summer of 2008, but does Iron Man: Aerial Assault fare as well as a game for the iPhone and iPod touch?
Review of MediaWidget, A Program to Copy iPod to iTunes
MediaWidget, one of the many programs that copies the contents of an iPod or other iOS device to a desktop iTunes library, stands out from the pack by virtue of one unfortunate feature: it's by far the slowest such program that I've tested to date. Combine that with a sparer feature set than that offered by other programs and I can't recommend it.
Pod to PC Review
Pod to PC offers a number of features that let you copy the contents of an iPod to a desktop iTunes library, but it is plagued by too many bugs and small frustrations to merit a recommendation.
Review of xPort, Software to Copy iPod to iTunes
Stay away from xPort. It hasn't been updated since 2009 and doesn't work with any modern iPods or iOS devices that I tried. If it's updated, I'll review the new version.
Review of iPod Access, Software to Copy iPod to iTunes
iPod Access 4.4.1 is simply too buggy to recommend. Sometimes it works fine, other times it works even though it doesn't appear to, and yet other times it doesn't work at all. Despite multiple tests, I haven't been able to determine what causes one outcome versus another. It's a solid app, but the bugs--and a lack of features even when it does work--add up to make it a poor choice.
XtremeMac Tuffwrap iPad Case Review
The XtremeMac Tuffwrap iPad case is packed with features, but it's priced right for what it offers and is a good entry-level case for the iPad user looking for protection while they use the iPad.
Mophie workbook iPad Case Review
The Mophie workbook iPad case is a stylish, functional iPad case that protects the iPad in transit and in use. While I'm a bit unsure of how much protection it offers the sides and edges of the iPad, it's an appealing package that merits a look from iPad owners.
Case Logic iPadW-101 Waterproof iPad Case Review
Case Logic's iPadW-101 water resistant iPad case won't save your iPad if you drop it in deep water, but for keeping moisture off your tablet, or using the iPad in special circumstances, it's a great bet. I wouldn't use it as my primary iPad case, but for potentially wet situations, it would be great to have on hand.
Acme Made Slick Case iPad Case Review
Acme Made's Slick Case certainly lives up to its name. Not only does it offer terrific, folio-type styling, it has two places to store the iPad, and serves both as a travel case and a case for when you use the iPad. Combine that with a US$39.99 list price and you've got a real winner.
Gumdrop Cases Surf Slider iPhone 4 Case Review
The Surf Slider iPhone 4 case from Gumdrop Cases is a bit plain, but it's in line in terms of features and price with many other solid cases -- but some difficulty in getting the iPhone out of the case drops its ranking a bit.
Agent18 ShockBand iPhone 4 Case Review
For users who want just enough of an iPhone 4 case to prevent the notorious iPhone 4 antenna problems from cropping up, Agent18's ShockBand is a great option. It doesn't provide protection as comprehensive as some cases, but when compared with other bumpers, it's just as good - and with a better price.
Ballistic HC iPhone 4 Case Review
The Ballistic HC iPhone 4 case has far and away the most extensive and comprehensive protection of any iPhone case I've tested. With both hard and soft layers of protection, a modular design, and both screen and port protection, it's clearly designed for use in rugged, dirty environments.
Agent 18 FlowerVest iPhone 4 Case Review
Agent18's FlowerVest case for the iPhone 4 hits all the basic marks for a solid iPhone case, but its lack of features or things to set it apart place it in the middle of the pack.

How Does the iPod Touch Wheel Work?
The touch wheel, aka Clickwheel, that was the primary way of controlling iPods for many years may seem a little magical. Run your finger around the circle and you'll move things onscreen, even though there are no moving parts. Of course the touch wheel isn't magic; it's science.
Third Generation Apple iPod touch Reviews
In many respects, the third generation iPod touch is very similar to the second-generation model. The key differences between the two are the faster performance and greater capacity sported by the third-generation model.
JBL On Time Micro iPod Alarm Clock Review
The JBL On Time Micro, with its extensive, well-thought-out features and powerful remote, is a very strong iPhone / iPod alarm clock. However, some user-interface complexities and a high price hold it back.

"I hate it." - User Reviews: Apple 6th Generation iPod nano
I hate it. It's so very frustrating to use. I use it to run and have a lot of difficulty changing songs without looking at the screen. I also like to put books on cd in my ipod but i can't seem to keep it from shuffling. Shuffling songs is one thing; shuggling chapters in a book is totally unacceptable. I wish i didn't buy it. I miss the wheel.

DLO HomeDock Deluxe Review
The DLO HomeDock Deluxe, a dock that connects your iPod to your TV/home entertainment system to let you play music, movies, and TV shows on your TV, brings the Apple TV to mind right away. The two devices basically do the same thing: let you play your iPod/iTunes content on your TV.

iPod PC Transfer 5.4 Review
There are too many bugs and quirks present in iPod PC Transfer to recommend it. While its core functionality--moving songs and other files from iOS device to PC--works reasonably well, a confusing interface, duplicate files, and middling performance mean you should seek other options.
Xilisoft iPod Rip Review
While the basic functionality of Xilisoft iPod Rip--copying an iPod to iTunes--is good, the program omits too many features that its competitors offer to receive a recommendation.
iCopyExpert Review: Software to Copy iPod to iTunes
ICopyExpert is fairly bare bones. It transfers music from an iPod to a computer, and doesn't do much else. This would be OK, except that it's slow and lacks some of the interface niceties that other programs offer.
Tansee iPod Transfer Review
I'm giving Tansee iPod Transfer no rating, as I couldn't test it. That's becase the iPod Transfer product only works with iPods; to transfer an iPhone or iPod touch, you need a different product. I don't have an iPod that's compatible with the program.
STM Jacket iPad Case Review
I'm fully aware that what I'm about to write about STM's jacket iPad case is ridiculous. That said, the duty of a review is to provide an honest assessment of all aspects of a product and one thing about this case makes me hesitant to recommend it to about 50% of the population: when used with its strap, it looks a lot like a purse.
DODOcase for iPad Review
The DODOcase for iPad is perhaps the most beautiful, well-designed iPad case I've seen. Luckily for those seduced by its style, it's also a solid performer.
Apple iPad Case Review
Apple's iPad Case is a pretty basic affair. With limited protection and only a few features (though the two-position stand is nice), and a relatively high price, look elsewhere for your iPad case. You can do better.
Slappa Damask iPad Case Review
Slappa's Damask iPad case is actually a case designed both for iPads and netbooks, not something designed to specifically work with the iPad. Despite some good features and a good price, its attempts at versatility ultimately undermine it as an iPad case.
