Belkin Screen Overlay For iPad

RH NumbersI’ve been absolutely paranoid about damaging my iPad’s pristine screen since the moment it first arrived, so a screen overlay that would help to protect the screen from scratches and other types of finger-nastiness is right at the top of my list of essential accessories. The overlay includes a cleaning cloth and a little smoothing card to help get those annoying bubbles out from under the overlay – but it’s a bit annoying that the US price of $20 has been converted straight into sterling at £20.

Creative Labs ZiiSound D5

RH NumbersThe ZiiSound D5 is the flagship model in Creative Labs’ new range of Bluetooth speaker systems - there are less expensive models starting at under £100. You can pair the iPad with the D5 by using the iPad’s built-in Bluetooth radio, but Creative also supplies the D5 with a separate dongle that plugs into the iPad’s dock connector, allowing it to use the high-quality Apt-X codec for optimum sound quality. The D5 also has a built-in dock for an ordinary iPhone or iPod, and a secondary audio input for connecting to a CD player or other audio source. And, yes, it sounds pretty good too.
