Applause, applause, applause.
Things I Did Not Buy: Twelve South’s HiRise for iPhone 5/iPad Mini. Beautifully crafted like everything that Twelve South makes. And while I own a couple of their products I currently do not have any convincing use case for mounting my iPhone or iPad Mini.
Things I Did Not Buy: The Autographer seems to be an interesting solution to the problem that you never have a camera ready to shot in the most interesting, funny or important moments. You wear this camera and it takes care of taking pictures at the right time for you. Great idea, but can’t see myself running around with the Autographer around my neck all the time. Would still be awesome, in particular if it would integrate seamlessly with Day One.
Things I Did Not Buy: Minimalist, elegant, premium iPhone ringtones and notification sounds. Nice, but the build-in ones ring and notify as well - maybe only half as elegant…
Things I Did Not Buy: Canary home security device with full iOS integration. Actually I could not even buy it as it is still in it’s crowd-funding period (already at $454k against a goal of $100k and still 34 days to go).
