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,,,, iPin US Store and and will soon be available on

It retails for $49.99 and I love it.

There is a coupon deal ongoing through the holidays at

Get the point?
