Five Great Apple iPhone and Mac Accessories

Another gem coming from Mophie later this year (and shown at Macworld): Juice Pack TV. Soon, people will be able to watch live TV shows, news and sports from CBS, Comedy Central, Fox MTV, NBC and Nickelodeon right on their iPhone.

Mophie's iPhone case is an external battery that taps into the Flo TV service, a subsidiary of Qualcomm. We're assuming an extra battery will be needed to run live mobile TV on the power-plagued iPhone. Mophie is short on details, pricing and release date.

Two Turntables and a Microphone

A short line formed around a booth to check out accessories from Djay that allow DJs to mix and play music from iTunes. One guy even began "scratching" CDs spinning on a record-like turntable. What does this have to do with techies and CIOs?

"The Bay Area is dominated by people in technology, and the number of DJs here is ridiculously high," Alan Cannistraro, a software developer, told CIO.com. "We sit in front of computers all day. We love it, but we all need creative outlets. DJ-ing is a geekier creative outlet."

After all, who doesn't like to spin records? Check out our slide show, Two Turntables and a MacBook: Geeks Get Their Groove On.

Wish List: iPhone Keyboard

It's fun to imagine what a small hardware keyboard for the iPhone would look like. Apple didn't look like it would budge on this front until the surprising announcement a couple of weeks ago when Apple said it would offer a docking station with a hardware keyboard for the iPad. Maybe an iPhone keyboard is in the works, too.

Until then, all we have is a non-functioning prototype.
