iMuffs - iLike

imuffs-iPod.jpg

Cut the wires and enjoy music without pesky headphone wires. And lower your chances of an embarrassing fall off the treadmill at the gym. (Ok, maybe that's just me.)

iMuffs by Wi-Gear are sleek, ergonomically-designed headphones that are wireless and deliver impressive stereo sound. iMuffs work with iPods and BT phones. (That leaves us iPhone users out.) The control panel on the headphones is easy to use and lets users pause, change volume, skip tracks, and seek music right from the headphones. And when paired to your BT phone, you can pause music and answer incoming calls as well. Features a noise canceling microphone, which is essential these days.

I took them to the gym, where I have almost killed myself with tangled wires on the elliptical machine, and found I could leave my nano in my gym bag and get a good 30 feet away and still hear strong sound. It doesn't travel through walls or when you get over to the free weights, though I'm sure soon advances in BT will change that.

If you have a pair of the original iMuffs, don't despair since now you can buy the Adapter MA110
and upgrade your iMuffs to the iPod nano, classic, and touch. ($59.99.)

Just in time for Christmas shopping, the price has dropped from $179 to $129.00. They're also available at Amazon.

Mobigrip gives you a firm grasp on your handhelds

Among the most abused gadgets in my home, the remote control takes first place - closely followed by its distant cousin, the (my) cell phone. In addition to the brutal bangs on the floor administered frequently by its butter-fingered owner, my cell phone has recently become the sole "toy" that my toddler son is really interested in. Now imagine how many more accidents the poor cell phone now has to look forward to.

But protecting it against accidents of the first kind seems possible with Mobigrip. This handy little accessory sticks to the back of your cell phone and throws out a "micro bungee" that you loop across your finger to avoid dropping the phone. The usage of this unique accessory isn't limited to cell phones either - you can use Mobigrip for most of your small household devices such as PDAs, MP3 players, iPods, voice recorders, some digital cameras, glucose meters, tv remotes, navigators, etc.

Securing small gadgets against accidental falls couldn't get any simpler. Or perhaps cheaper. Mobigrip is available in various colors for $9.95. Also available at Amazon.

What to look for in a bargain laptop--and how to find it

Now that brand-name laptops can be had for under $500 if you are a smart shopper, a notebook computer is a reasonable choice for the Big Present even in these worrisome times. Laptop mag's Avram Piltch has a brief rundown on features to look for in a bargain laptop here.

The smart shopping is up to you. One place to start is Retrevo, the comparison shopping site for electronics. Retrevo also finds reviews and those precious manuals.
