We always have admired iHome for their ingenuity and now that they have teamed with LifeWorks Technology Group, they are offering even more of a choice in networking. The iStand Notebook Media Bundle comes with an integrated iPod/iPhone dock and a price of $299.99.

The iConnect Media Keyboard is $149.99. Both items come in silver and white for Mac owners and black for Windows users. Look for a summer debut.

The S1 can stream A2DP music, has a design that cuts back on exterior and engine noise, works up to 10 meters away from your phone and gives 15 hours talk time before needing a charge.

PlayNow Arena Adds Movies


Sony Ericsson's PlayNow Arena, a European service that currently allows downloading of games and music, plans to add movies this month with W995 in Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Users get to choose from about 15 movies a month, download them on their PC, transfer to phone, then watch for up to 90 days. We expect this will be a trend, as it seems once one company comes up with an edge, others tend to jump on the selected bandwagon.
