a review by Tom Piper
I love gadgets, particularly those related to my iOS devices. This month I'm evaluating a cool leather case for my iPad, plus a stylus/pen for pad or phone, and a pair of gloves for use in the approaching colder times. Life just got better with these great products from New Technology . . .
The iFolio iPad case is handcrafted in the US from premium imported Brazilian leather, and is the ultimate in luxury and craftsmanship for the protection and transportation for your treasure. A variety of carrying options are offered thanks to a collapsible, elastic-backed, double-stitched leather handle and removable, double-stitched leather shoulder strap (adjustable from 24" to 42"). Both are affixed to the outer body via precision-crafted, sturdy, nickel-plated hardware.
This case opens with a single motion using the genuine YKK pull tab equipped, soft-touch nylon zipper, revealing an elastic-backed, double-stitched, expandable leather loop designed to hold a variable-sized writing or pointing device. The left compartment contains a single 7" W x 10" H hard-backed, taffeta lined document sleeve for fingertip easy-glide insertion and removal of passports, notes and other important paper/personal effects. The right compartment features four elastic-backed, non-marring, double-stitched, leather retaining straps to securely hold and pamper your iPad while allowing full access to all iPad ports and functions. The straps can expand to hold a Newer Technology NuGuard-equipped iPad for users who take the iPad out of the iFolio for less formal uses.
Keeping the case and your iPad looking like new is a sewn-in hard shell, surrounded by soft padding and enveloped in top grade Brazilian leather. As a result of such meticulous attention to quality and finish, the Newer Technology iFolio comes backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

This is a beautiful case, extremely functional, and very durable.
The NuTouch Gloves are a great cold-weather solution for using touch screen devices outdoors where you can type, tap, swipe, and scroll in ease. These gloves offer maximum comfort without diminishing your ability to use device. They are available in classic charcoal color makes them perfect in any setting, and you can wear them as liners with heavier cold weather gloves.
NuTouch Gloves are the stylish and functional solution to keep your hands warm while using an iPhone, iPad or other touch screen device in cold weather. They're perfect when waiting for the bus, commuting on the train, attending outdoor events, running errands, and more. A special conductive fiber woven into all 10 fingertips allows you to tap, swipe, and scroll on all touch screen devices—even type on full-size touch screen keyboards.

The NuScribe stylus and pen provide an ideal 2-in-1 companion for touch screen products with a combination twist-barrel pen and touch screen. It will keep your touch screen smudge free and easier to view while the soft rubber nib delivers smooth touch screen surface glide. It gives you the best of digital and traditional writing tools in one convenient design. The NuScribe has precision-formed, soft rubber nib which glides effortlessly across touch screens, so you can navigate, draw, sketch, take digital notes, even turn pages in iBooks.
When the setting calls for traditional pen and paper, the NuScribe's twist barrel operation reveals a smooth ball point tip with fluid ink coverage comparable to business class writing instruments. Versatile and convenient, the NuScribe is the "write" option for touch screens and paper.

All in all, these are very nice enhancements for my iOS devices which protect my investments on one hand, while making them more functional on the other. These are just a few more additions to a long line of great products from Newer Technology which make our lives better in many ways. I think they will work great for you too.
