To continue the talk on elite accessories. Last year ax5 showed us, how a DIY $100000-dock station for iPhone looks like.
As they say, Russia was always rich on jack-of-all-trades, and it still is. Noreve case ($15000) would suit this dock station.

Sony has just released new dock station with wireless capabilities for iPod player. The main feature of the device is ability to broadcast multichannel audio all over the digital home.
The S-AirPlay system uses a Sony S-Air wireless platform. The audio signal can be transmitted to a number of rooms at range no more than 54 meters without using any cables. The endpoint looks like a simple sound system speaker but with a radio receiver inside. Of course, it needs to be powered from electricity. Sony declares that the S-Air signal doesn’t interfere with other digital home devices.
The S-AirPlay pack consists of dock-station and two wireless speakers. You can increase the number of speakers up to ten ones. The feature of S-AirPlay is dynamic configuration of loudspeakers – each of them can translate playlist music or signal from FM-tuner, embedded in dock station.

I think many people will agree that some games’ controls aren’t that good. It isn’t always comfortable to use touch screen.

Docks that were used with first generation iPhone will not fit iPhone 3G due to size difference. I’m sure that’s not the most horrifying news compared to the upcoming Sweden-Russia match.

My iPhone had three jumping suicide attempts. First two were performed by falling off the bookcase during long calls, when I wasn’t there: the vibration had driven it to the edge of the shelf (1.7 meters), then it was just gravity force… It survived. Third time I accidentally wiped it off the table and it flew across the room. Survived, again. But I had no will to experiment any further.
Later on, Egrips manufacturer, producing slip protection stickers for mobile devices came up. The trick is easy: you stick it on the back cover of your iPhone and forget about the slip.
