I love my iPad and tablets in general. The ability to watch TV shows or movies on planes or while I’m working out on the treadmill is one of the best tech developments I can think of. Tablets offer maximum flexibility to enjoy content, and now we have a gadget accessory that makes it even easier to use your tablet.
The Monkey Kit available at BiteMyApple.co is a great accessory for anyone who uses their tablet or even their smart phone often, whether at home or in places like the gym. The flexible arm lets you set up your tablet almost anywhere, and it easily attaches to the back of your tablet. You can also just leave the spherical portion of you want to rest your tablet on your desk or table with slight elevation.
Basically, the Monkey Kit holds your tablet so you don’t have to. Holding the tablet is probably the only complaint you’ll ever hear, so this gadget can make things even easier for you. Also, with Father’s Day coming up, it offers a cool and unique gift idea as well.

First, the numeric LED display on the front of the razor comes up as soon as you turn it on, and right away you know how many more minutes of charge you have left up to 60 minutes. It also alerts you about cleaning and replacement heads. The also added suction cups at the bottom of the charging unit so that it stays put on the counter.

We reviewed BRAVEN speakers earlier this year, and now we had the chance to check out the 625s. This version is encased in a rugged, shock-absorbing exterior with aluminum grills that let listeners take this tough speaker on the go. All of the BRAVEN speakers are portable but the 625s is ideal for outdoor settings and for travel. It comes with a waterproof bag, USB flashlight, and up to 16 hours of continuous play.
As we noted last time, these speakers produce excellent sound and you can also string them together to make the sound even more robust. They’re perfect for impromptu parties or even for casual listening regardless of where you find yourself. Now with the 625s you can feel even more comfortable taking it anywhere.
The Braven 625s (or frankly any other Braven models) offers a great stocking stuffer for plenty of people on your list. It’s obviously perfect for young people but it’s also great for those of us who grew up in the boom box days when people shared music experiences as opposed to wearing headphones and staying in their own little world.
