That changes with version 2.0, which both adds iPad support and introduces a new user interface that is altogether more intuitive.

Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens official

The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens is an amalgamation of glass and metal that's made to capture super high quality images with an ultra-wide angle. This lens was of the most awe-inspiring pieces of equipment we got to have a peek at earlier this year at CES but it wasn't something we were able to talk about until now.

StoneTether: a tiny long-range Bluetooth tracker

We've seen different types of Bluetooth trackers over time, some being simplistic, others more complicated. StoneTether seeks to make a name for itself amongst these, doing so with a mixture of tiny size and long-range tracking capabilities that lets users locate items even if they're a fair distance away. Says the maker, StoneTether has a 500ft. range via an integrated antenna, and it works in conjunction with a related app (iOS and Android). The app works to advise users before something is lost, sending alerts when the user moves away from a tagged device -- or, alternatively, if a tagged device is moving away from the user.
