Apple Byte: The best Apple gear from CES 2013

4:12 /

Brian Tong hits the CES 2013 show floor to find something other than glittery Apple iPhone cases.

-Hey guys. What's going on? Welcome to CES 2013. It's a special edition of the Apple Byte, so we're gonna scatter the floor, and see if we can find those unique things for you guys, so you know, let's go check it out. Come on. All right guys, we know Apple has their own smart cover case, but this is the smartest case I have ever seen. This is the Ozaki iCoat, and what makes it unique is, yeah you know, you see you have this plastic backing on there. You also have the magnetic little snap cover, but this has these different little groves inside of here that allows you to fold it in 5 different shapes for 5 different positions, and we like a lot of positions. This case is available now, and it costs $79.99. I know it's not the cheapest case, but you know what, I'm feeling the style and it actually has function. Hey, guys we're here at Just Mobile's booth, and you know, I'm a huge fan of their design; so, they have two new really cool products. I, you know, I just got an iMac; so these sort of kinda relevant to me. This guy is called the AluRack, and what makes it unique is it fits on the back side of your iMac. So if you have a lot of space behind your computer, you're on the go, maybe on an office or an open area, you can actually put your laptop, or your Macbook Air, or your Macbook Pro behind the iMac distort and then grab it whenever you want. Now the other product they have here, this is called the AluBase. And you can see here, this is a Macbook Pro, I could just drop it into this base. It comes with two different inserts for different sizes to support a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro, but it's a really nice hefty piece of aluminum, feels really solid, has a rubberized coating on the bottom so that it stays in one place. This is priced at $50. The AluRack is $60, but these are two cool products from Just Mobile that you guys should check out. Oh my God. This shiny one goes there, and this - Oh, hey guys, what's going on? All right, so we're here at CES. There are tons of cases all over the place, but this one is pretty unique. It's from, you know, Bling My Thing, and it's a do-it-yourself case, you know, it kinda looks to me, express my artistic side. Look guys, there it is. Someone real special is gonna get this thing. All right, guys we're here in the Mobee booth, and we know if you're familiar with their Magic Feet pack, this allows you to take this base and charge some of other's Apple's devices, like this, if you see this, this is a specific charger that goes in here and it allows you to rest your mouse on here and then charge it independently. Well, now they've added this new thing called Magic Juice. It's gonna be $79 that takes that same concept, allows you to rest it on this base and then take this power where ever you go to charge something like your iPhone or iPad. It's coming out on May, but it's another way that they're extending this portable wireless charging in the Mac ecosystem to their own products. -We love Apple Byte. -I love this job. Hey girl, no, no, no. You don't even look at those things. Look what I made for you, look at this thing. -Really? -Yeah, really. -Seriously? -All right guys, that does it for another special edition of the Apple Byte here in Las Vegas. I've got my camera here. I'm gonna take a picture. See you guys. I made this for you. Will you take it? -[unk] -No?
