Binocular Adapter for iPhone 5 adds some serious zoom

Have you ever seen a perfect Kodak moment before your eyes, and tried to capture it on your phone, only to realize that you’re entirely too far away?

The Spy Watch – GPS Tracker and Mobile Device for Kids


It’s amazing how quickly our kids grow up, that being said I have to admit I still see my daughter as a little girl and I’m not really enjoying having to let her venture off to do things on her own. This year she wants to go trick-or-treating with her friends. What? No mom to take pictures, “test” the candy and watch for traffic? Is she nuts?
