The latest issue of TidBITS (#658) has a good look at three very different laptop stands (the groovy lucite iCurve, the iMac arm-style Lapvantage Dome, and the spidery and portable Dexia Rack) by Adam Engst. The stands are designed to help notebook computers work as desktop replacements by elevating them to the proper height.

The same issue also has an excellent and concise overview of the best currently available headphones (those that plug directly into MP3 players and computers without a headphone amp, anyway) by Dan Frakes. He includes models from $17 right into the hundreds-of-dollars range, and discusses all styles, from earbuds to in-ear to traditional headband to noise-cancelling.
