You won’t even be able see Uranus with that lame astronomy app for your iPad. If you really want to see what’s up, you’ll need serious hardware & this 20-inch diameter GPS-enabled telescope goes deep space. You’ll be able to watch the counter-rotation of the bands around Jupiter and see stellar winds in the Orion nebula. All kinds of stuff the iPad can’t deliver.

Gorilla Pods are versatile & make ‘getting the shot’ way easier than other tripods because they grip onto and wrap around just about any surface. Now they’ve built one especially for your Android, Windows or iPhone device. The M-Pod works as a tripod or simply as a stand, using a secure elastic grip to keep your phone in place no matter where you put it.
It’s not really your Grandaddy’s knife. But you can tell people whatever you want. It’s got a rosewood handle and brass hardware with a stainless steel blade. Everything about the knife says it could’ve belonged to an old dude who knew what was up.
MultiDock lets you charge & store up to ten tablets & phones in one space-saving place. You can even stack multiple docks for simultaneous charging of a fleet of up to 30 devices. With that level of device addiction you’ll likely be anxious & bored while they charge but be brave.
