The tendency to over complicate things (and over price) is a common problem in the world of technology accessories. That’s why we loved this Wooden Desktop iPad Cradle ($18). Hell, they didn’t even bother to give it a name. Designed to hold your iPad at a 18° for display purposes, or at 45° as a workstation, it seems perfect as a recipe reader in the kitchen. If you’re slightly brave and crazy, we’re pretty sure it might even pull double duty as a cutting board. How AppleCare might respond to finding broccoli bits in your 30 pin connector however is another story, but it probably won’t merit a last-minute Cupertino press conference.
