Geneva's Sound System Model XS is a portable, Bluetooth-enabled speaker system with a built-in alarm clock that sticks to the company's unique design aesthetic.
The iD9 is a fairly simple speaker dock for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod, and its price reflects that. But the iD9 sounds good for the money.
Soundfreaq's Sound Kick is a decent, if underwhelming, Bluetooth speaker.
The Joy Factory's two styluses, the Monet and the DaVinci, offer a taste of the range of nib styluses currently on the market. The Monet is an elongated model that excels for painting, but not much else; the DaVinci is a solid, all-purpose tool, but not the best available.

The Sydnee isn't inexpensive, but if you've got a few iPads and other iOS devices, it offers the convenience of full-speed charging of up to four iPads from a single wall outlet. However, if any of your iPads are protected by bulky cases, the Sydnee's design means those iPads have to share a single shelf, as the charger's slide-in slots can't accommodate bulkier cases.
