postheadericon Visualized: Smart Cover magnets can turn your Apple tablet into a FridgePad

Has the iPad 2 not proven its versatility to you yet? Well, buy one of those “don’t call it a case” Smart Covers that Apple launched with it and you’ll be able to turn your new dual-core slate into a bona fide FridgePad. Just add fridge.

Nyko solves your 3DS battery concerns with Power Pak+

If you took the time to peruse our early review of the Nintendo 3DS, and it sure looks like a lot of you did, you’re probably well aware that battery life is a serious concern. We managed just over three hours on a charge, which is really bad for a handheld gaming console. Nyko is the first to offer a solution, the Power Pak+, which actually replaces the stock Nintendo pack, screwing on to the back and offering double the battery life — which still sadly doesn’t approach the longevity of the DS Lite. The company is also releasing a new charging stand that will let you juice up that pack just by setting it down, useful because once you affix this bump the stock charging pad won’t work. The Power Pak+ will cost $19.99 and ships on March 27, while the Charge Base is $29.99 and hits stores a week later. It’ll be up to you to provide the pants with bigger pockets necessary for the extra bulk added here.

postheadericon Apple’s Digital AV Adapter also works with iPhone 4, fourth-gen iPod touch, and first-gen iPad

In case you’re wondering whether Apple’s forthcoming Digital AV Adapter is worth your $39, you might be pleased to know that said HDMI dongle is also compatible with the latest crop of iOS devices before the iPad 2. This includes the iPhone 4, fourth-generation iPod touch, and even the first-generation iPad. Alas, both movies and slideshows will be capped at 720p output from these older devices, whereas the iPad 2 goes a little further with screen mirroring of up to 1080p — we’re guessing the beastly dual-core A5 chip is what makes the magic happen here, though movie output’s also limited to 720p. And hey, we’re only a few months away from finding out if the next iPhone will also get some 1080p love, so no pressure on buying this dongle just yet.
