iPin gets right to the 'point'

I know what you are thinking... put an "i" in front of a noun and legions of Apple fans will flock to your product and buy it.

That might've been the case even a few years ago, but not so much anymore.

So I was a little skeptical when I was pitched a device called the "iPin" a couple weeks ago.

I said I "was" skeptical, because I'm not anymore.

Let me get right to the "point."

The iPin is tiny. It's a pin that slips into the audio jack of iPhone and sits pretty flush so it doesn't get in the way at all.

It serves as a laser pointer and presentation device when paired with an app. So you get the laser pointer capabilities with an app that will change slides and control a cursor on your screen. Very useful indeed.

If you find you need to use your headphones when you normally keep your iPin in the jack, there is a clip included that you can store the iPin in safely.

Perfect for the lecturer, teacher, or business professional that could benefit from having a convenient laser pointer.

The iPin can be purchased in the United States on Amazon.com, Bestbuy.com, Brookstone.com, BHPhotoVideo.com, iPin US Store and ShopNextGen.com and will soon be available on NewEgg.com.

It retails for $49.99 and I love it.

There is a coupon deal ongoing through the holidays at http://ipinlaser.com/ipin.

Get the point?
