— January 3, 2010 — Tech
Macheads like me have a pretty solid collection of Apple gadgets in their homes; these tech must-haves embody the devotion this mighty brand inspires. In anticipation of Apple’s big announcement on January 26, in which it’s rumored that the iSlate tablet will officially join the ranks of Apple gadgets, I’ve clustered our favorite Apple concepts from Trend Hunter’s archives.

There are iBikes, iToilets and even several versions of the iSlate. Check out these and more Apple gadgets below.
