A furry friend for your mouse

The GoSmart RestPad is a furry computer accessory designed to sit on your desk.

Aside from the great feel, it helps prevent wrist pain associated with the endless hours we spend looking at computer screens and mousing, which can result in repetitive wrist injury or carpal tunnel syndrome.

As with any mouse pad, there is a place for your mouse to slide around, but what makes it unique is a natural sheepskin rest pad for your wrist.

The soft, pillow-like feel gives you a comfortable resting place, along with pressure relief for your wrist.

GoSmart testing found it "validated to relieve over twice as much pressure as other wrist rests, as tested with advanced tactile array sensors that measured the contact pressures underneath the wrist."

The white sheepskin is available with brown, camel or pink mouse pad colours and is attached with Velcro, making it easy to remove for cleaning.

Details: $US19.95, www.justgosmart.com

Car-friendly phone mount

The TYLT Capio universal car mount is the missing piece to truly make your phone hands-free.

Just as the name states, it's universal and works with most any smartphone, keeping it upfront and steady on a dashboard or any flat surface in your car.

The Capio is built with patented technology to keep your phone in place. There are no clamps or brackets, which often scratch your phone.

It affixes to any flat surface, including glass, metal or wood, and even holds up vertically on a glove compartment. A ball joint neck allows it to be fully adjustable and positioned in most any angle.

When the Capio is removed from whatever surface it was on, there's no sticky residue or scratches left behind.

It's a great accessory for keeping a phone upright when using map or GPS apps, or even to use in the backseat for watching movies.

Details: $US27, www.tylt.com

Pocket-sized Pulse a pleasure

Felt Audio's Pulse mobile Bluetooth speaker first caught my attention with its small size and weight.

Considering it's pocket size, the sound is great, making it ideal for listening to satellite radio (as I did with it). Its internal microphone works as a portable hands-free speakerphone.

It has a built-in clip for attaching to a sun visor or to have it stand on a flat surface.

You'll get about eight hours of use before a USB charge is needed, which takes just over a half an hour.

Details: $US59.99, available in black or white, www.feltaudio.com
