This week my "Sweet TEK" (pick of the week) was all the BookBook accessories available from TwelveSouth.

So just one month ago, I was praising all the Apple leather accessories available for their products. But now I’ve changed my tune just a bit. I stumbled across some images on the TwelveSouth website and was immediately sold.

I’m in this phase of my life where I’m resenting the fact that I need technology to be effective in my personal and professional lives. And while my reasoning may sound strange, I ask you the reader, to be patient with me and let me explain.

I purchased all the black leather accessories for all my Apple devices several weeks ago. They are fine quality products. They are also expensive. But more that all that, they are a constant reminder of my addiction to all things technology and more importantly, the Apple brand. I have a real problem. TwelveSouth offers a unique lineup of products that disguises the new and shiny and wraps everything up in a pre-worn, distressed and casual package that separates the tech from the future world it belongs to and brings it back to an age where analog tools cluttered our desks and the pen & pad were our go to devices. It's the look of the TwelveSouth products that allows me to separate myself from the technology in an emotional way.

I’m hopeful this came across well and that you feel the vibe that I’m trying to share.

My laptop, my tablet, my phone and even my cables have new homes. And when all together, the tech becomes invisible, out of sight and out of mind.

What about you? Are you ready to give your tech a new look? Look no further than TwelveSouth. They are sure to have something that will make you feel nostalgic (and smart).
