    Review: DLO's VentMount for iPhone, iPod Touch

    The VentMount DLO is a company that makes its fortune manufacturing cool and useful accessories almost exclusively for Apple’s iPod. It makes every imaginable case, dock, cable, you name it. The VentMount is new. It’s a type of case for the iPhone and iPod Touch that clips into your car’s dashboard, allowing easy access to your device when you’re driving. Read More

  • DLO's new StrapWrap is just what it sounds like

    [photopress:strapwrap.jpg,full,center] There are a few jokes in the tech blogging community on what DLO’s acronym stands for, as the company tends to focus on iPodish products, like skins, or “Docks, Like, Only”. But DLO is my favorite maker of iPod cases, and the latest edition, the StrapWrap, is pretty awesome. It’s a sleeve that you attach to the strap of your… Read More

  • DLO lays an egg with new iPhone, iPod Touch speakers

    [photopress:portspeakers_horizontal_lrg.jpg,full,center] I travel a lot, it’s part of being a famous blogger, and I usually watch video on my iPod when I’m flying, because I can’t watch that one episode of Friends again without wanting to kill Matt Perry. I usually find a way to prop up my iPod so I can watch Beerfest without my arm going numb. In my hotel, I usually arrange… Read More

    Macworld 2008: DLO's HomeDock HD is maybe the most innovative thing we've seen so far

    DLO, makers of so many rad iPod cases and docks we can’t keep track of them all, has outdone itself with its new HomeDock HD. While it’s tempting to say it’s just another iPod dock with video out, that would be incorrect. The HomeDock HD doesn’t just feature HDMI and component out to work better with your HDTV, it also features upconverting technology, meaning it can… Read More

    DLO's HomeDock Music Remote Review


    When I initially saw the DLO HomeDock Music Remote ($130), I had high expectations based on the company’s earlier success with iPod docks. This one comes with a fancy remote that lets you browse and control your iPod on a tiny LED screen. The effect is kind of like carrying around a smaller and less functional version of your iPod to control the real thing, which charges and plays… Read More

    Review: DLO's Dope iPhone Cases

    For those not familiar with the great DLO, look at your iPod. If it’s got a case or a dock, chances are good that DLO made it. The company has more different types of iPod accessories than Apple itself, and most of them kick ass. While I’m not one for trapping my electronics in cases myself, I know that I’m in the minority. Your iPod will get dropped, dirty, and damp… Read More

    DLO's TuneStik Packs Double Punch

    How does it work that DLO has come up with yet another nifty iPod add-on that we like? It works like magic. The latest offering is the TuneStik. At first blush, it’s just another FM transmitter for the dock connector. But then you notice the little FM transmitter and realize it’s a combo remote control unit/FM transmitter. Cool. But then it gets even better. DLO has included a… Read More

    Preview: DLO iPhone Accessories A'Comin'

    Oh man, we like the looks of this. DLO, makers of tons of good iPod accessories, is apparently gearing up for the inevitable onslaught of iPhone, by the looks of this silicone case. Presumably, it works like DLO’s iPod cases, meaning the capacitive touch buttons work though the silicone. This will keep your multitouch munchkin from getting its back all scratched up. No word on release… Read More

    DLO Jam Jacket, Now With Useful Feature

    DLO, recently acquired by Philips, announced today an updated version of its popular iPod case, the Jam Jacket. Like the old Jackets, the product is designed to protect your DAP from dings and damage by encapsulating it in a rubberized sleeve. Pretty standard stuff. As a point of innovation, however, the new Jacket features a headphone management system that allows you to spool your… Read More
