I love the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp. It's beautiful. It's bright. It's got easy-to-use touch controls. And what's more, it's got a handy USB port so you can plug in your 30-pin Dock or Lightning cable and charge your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad right from the lamp.
You can pivot the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp to several different angle, though sadly not all the way upwards. There are also several different modes, including reading mode, study mode, relaxation mode, and bedtime mode.

There are lots of alternative mail clients available in the App Store and Mail Pilot for iPhone and iPad is the newest addition. While the workflow concepts are simliar to that of apps like Mailbox, the overall interface and design is rather different.

I backed Mail Pilot in its infancy stages last summer when it started out as a Kickstarter project. It was a great idea and I'm excited to finally give it the review treatment and find out whether or not it really was worth the wait.
