Techstination feature for Thursday, December 16, 2010

Not so expensive gifts for gadget people.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   What do you get for those family members and friends who always run out to buy the latest iPhone or iPad, iPod or other kind of smartphone?      The answer is…it’s actually pretty easy.   The simplest one for Apple device owners…is an iTunes gift card…that gives them a choice of apps, music or videos.   And there are all kinds of add-ons.   Griffin Technology is making a variety of cases and charging options.   The company’s Jackie Ballinger says for iPad owners… there’s the Air Strap…

“Makes it really easy to hold your iPad.  That was one of the concerns that we heard from people was that… my arm gets tired just holding it up.  So this has like a built in strap on the back of it.”

There’s also a Power Dock Dual…that can charge an iPad and iPhone at the same time.  Want to let the kids play with the iPad?  Griffin’s LightBoard lets them use it to draw…without ruining it.   For those new little square iPod Nanos…there’s a slap on strap that make it look like a watch.   There’s more info at   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
