iPhone stands are everywhere you look.  They stand alone, built into cases and into cars.  But at the end of the day most of them are one trick ponies.  Enough was enough, at least that’s what two guys thought and developed the Glif.

The Glif, not to be confused with a Milf, is a 3-in-1 stand for your iPhone.  Blah, blah, you’ve heard it all before, but have you?  The Glif can work all by itself, allowing you to prop up your iPhone in landscape mode to watch a movie – great on a flight – or allow it to stand up in landscape mode to capture a group shot.  But its true source of power is found in its ability to attach to any standard tripod mount, allowing you to setup shots that don’t contain shake.

You can grab the Glif for $20, which is arguably expensive given its simplicity, but odds are you’ll make your money back in pictures and videos saved.  And by saved, we mean ones you can actually show to people.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
