The iPad Fan is a little bit of a misnomer as sites go — while the writers certainly *are* iPad fans (and who among us aren’t?), they’re also BIG fans of Apple-related technology in general. So we were pleased that they took notice of our MagicWand recently, and after taking it for a spin, found it to be an accessory they can’t live without. Here’s what writer and tech dude Jon Norman has to say:
“What’s the MagicWand? It’s a simple yet effective hardware add-on for your wireless Apple keyboard and Magic Trackpad. It easily and nicely connects the two devices together, allows them to be moved together and used easily from a couch or chair…and even better, keeps them IN PLACE on the desk. No more hunting with your hand for the Magic Trackpad.”
Jon continues, “This is the type of add-on I would have expected from Apple. But just like always, where Apple falls short, Twelve South comes in and picks up the slack. They continue to produce high quality items that compliment Apple designs and fill a void left by various products. Be it iPad, Mac, etc. Each time I’m wondering if they can live up, and each time I’m impressed.
The MagicWand ($29.99) by TwelveSouth is one of the little things you don’t know you miss until you have it, then you wonder how you lived without it. It just works! It’s just what anyone with the setup of wireless keyboard and Magic Trackpad needs.
The design itself is great, doesn’t look out of place at all, as it’s perfectly streamlined to fit these two devices. If I didn’t know better I’d say it was made BY Apple, but again, it’s not. Twelve South just do what they do, continue to impress with their products.
It’s a cinch to install, takes about 30 seconds. Has nice little anti-slip feet on it to keep things in place on a desk, and is sturdy enough to let you carry your two devices as one around to a different location. The accessory can even be installed on either side of the keyboard. Perhaps you use the Magic Trackpad as a mouse replacement. Perfect! Perhaps you use it on the left side in CONJUNCTION with the mouse, to make your experience even better. Again, perfection.”
Thankyouverymuch. We think MagicWand rocks, too. Get yours here.
