My list of most used accessories for 2011 is rather short, but these accessories are real gems. I like to keep things nice and simple to help with productivity, and these accessories fit the bill perfectly. I don't like the wiz-bang accessories that add flash, but rather like to stick to items that add to the functionality of my iPhone or iPad. Here are a few of my favorites.

RAM windshield mounting system for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S

RAM Windshield Mount

The RAM windshield suction mount is the best car mount that money can buy. I've been through a handful of car and windshield mounts, and nothing has come close to the RAM mount thus far. Its unique suction lock delivers a full and sturdy lock to the windshield with no play whatsoever.

This is the perfect mount for anyone looking to use their iPhone as a GPS system. Because of the sturdy design, even the roughest of terrain won't be a match for the RAM mount. I've been off road with this thing a number of times, and not only does it stay in place, it doesn't wiggle one bit!

Want to look cool while geeking out at the same time? With BookBook for iPhone, you can! I've had the BookBook case for my iPhone 4 for about half a year now, and the head-turns and double-takes haven't stopped yet. By design, the BookBook case looks more like a small poetry book. So, by nature it looks as if you're diving deep into a good poem or novel, when in reality you've just been playing Angry Birds. Great camouflage.
