TechBits: universal accessories

Posted: Updated:

The Tech Guy shares some universal accessories for tablets and smart phones:

The DashIt is a simple rubber cradle for smart phones.  It sits on your car's dashboard, and can handle phones of all sizes.  The DashIt has channels on the bottom for power cables, so you can keep your devices plugged in.  Its weight and tactile qualities keep it from sliding off your dashboard- though it can skate around the dash a little bit.

A company called Fuse Chicken has released a gooseneck charging system called Une Bobine.  It's firm enough to support most phones, and flexible enough to bend into a variety of positions.  There's also a version designed specifically for iPhones.

Stand For Stuff is now marketing the Universal Swing Holder.  It's a stand to hold tablets, that resembles a boom mic stand.  At this time, the unit is not yet even listed on the company's web site- though the predecessor, a stand for iPads. is listed.  The universal stand has an adjustable grip system to handle a variety of tablets- and a USB lead that prevents having to drop a USB cable outside the stand for power.
