The Perfect Companion for Your iPhone

If you're an iPhone junkie (and who isn't?) you'll want to check out this fabulous new accessory.

The iPhone Desktop Handset lets you work comfortably and efficiently all day using your sleek iPhone instead of the clunky office you phone you now have.
The anodized aluminum stand places your iPhone at a convenient angle and stays secure on your desktop using four non-slip silicone pads. It accommodates your phone vertically or horizontally, with or without a protective case.

With the handset in one hand, your other hand is free to navigate all of your iPhone's applications: calendars, e-mail, the Internet, and even games! (Hold on, Mom, gotta nuke a bunch of hateful birds... You were saying?)

The headset plugs into your phone's headphones jack. Your iPhone can charge from a computer or wall outlet via your USB charging cable and adapter while the headset is powered by your iPhone's battery.

Don't have an iPhone? The stand and headset work with any cell phone with a standard earbud jack.

We sell these for $69.95 in quantities of ten or more. Call us at (310) 581-6710 and we'll fix you up pronto.

Cast and crew gifts anyone?

Make It a Double: A Scotch That Came in From the Cold

We recently wrote about Mongolia's main city, Ulan Bator, the coldest of any capital on our planet.

Now comes word from Scotland that whisky maker Glenfiddich has introduced a limited edition bottling blended from casks that were all exposed to sub-zero temperatures when the roof of their storage building collapsed under heavy snow in 2009.

After witnessing the damage, malt maker Brian Kinsman was inspired to create an original blend "marrying together different ages of mature Glenfiddich – some very old."

"Some of these casks had previously held Oloroso sherry and others were traditional whisky casks made of American oak," he explained. "Each one was specially chosen to make a unique contribution to the taste and aroma of the final whisky."

He calls it Snow Phoenix, "a great Glenfiddich Single Malt born of chance and adversity."

While the name may confound if you know anything about mythology, the results are another matter. They have generated rapturous reviews.

It has "an oaky, salty depth. This is one silky smooth scotch," opined one critic. Another crowed, "I poured myself another glass, for pleasure, immediately!"

Enough said.

Only 12,000 bottles of Snow Phoenix were produced, so it may be hard to find.

We think it's worth the search. Let us know what you think of it.
