The Pronto turns your iPhone into a universal remote using the Peel app, but setup and control limitations make it a tough sell for more tech-intensive living rooms.

Apple Watch 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case
REVIEW

Apple Watch 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case ( Space Black Stainless Steel Link Bracelet)

The Apple Watch is the most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch ever seen, but first-gen shortfalls make it feel more like a fashionable toy than a necessary tool. That may change with a big software update later this year, though.

It's a great stylus for annotating and sketching, but you might find the Wacom Bamboo Stylus Fineline a little harder to use for long stretches of writing or printing.

Adobe Ink and Slide
REVIEW

Adobe Ink and Slide

Adobe Ink is a very nice stylus, though $200 is a heavy burden to lay on the entire package's slight shoulders, and the apps are solid if not spectacular.
