USBfever stand, IR remote
Aside from its PPS2, USBfever has added two other products to its lineup for Apple portables. The first of these is an infrared remote (right), which operates at distances of up to 32.8 feet, and controls basic iPhone/iPod functions such as play/pause, skipping forward and backward, and adjusting volume. To work, users must plug the remote's included dongle into a player's dock connector; supported devices include everything from the third generation iPod onwards, with the exception of Shuffles and the first-generation Nano. The remote package costs $20.
Second from the company is combination case and kickstand for the third-generation Nano. The case is appropriately apple-shaped, and is meant to let Nanos double as digital photo frames. All ports and buttons are exposed, and the cases come in clear, pink, black and green colors. Each one is $14.
