The biggest problem with dedicated bluetooth keyboards for your smartphones and tablets has always been that they interrupt your workflow. They're also not exactly convenient to carry around, but that's always been less of an issue than having to pick up your phone to respond to a text or switching keyboards to work on your desktop or laptop. Logitech's new K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard makes everything so much easier with the addition of a simple three selector switch in the upper left. Pair the keyboard with up to three devices and each one gets a spot on the switch. Adjust the switch to whatever device you want to type on, and you're back to business. There's also a slot in the top of the keyboard to hold your phone and tablet so you can have one truly integrated workspace.

There are speakers you plug your iPhone into with a cable. Speakers you connect to with Bluetooth. Speakers that passively amplify sound (this is the old plastic cup trick).
