Have you ever wished that there was a more practical way to surf the web on your iPad while driving? If so, this clever accessory — aka the iDrive — is just what you need.
Just before you start wondering what happens if the airbag deploys (as in having a tablet greet your face at 100 mph), the iDrive is (thankfully) a fake. Sold by PrankPack, these “Genuine Fake Gift Boxes” go for $8 a pop, or 3 for $20. Currently there are 12 different fake/real boxes for sale, including the iArm, Bathe & Brew and Wake & Bake Griddle. Take a look below at a few more of these clever gift gags.

We’ve already seen some great musical performances using only iPhones and iPads (like this one), but East Midwest Music Group’s recent recording of Jason Derulo’s It Girl using only the iPad for instruments really begins to blur the line between music made from professional studio gear and well, music apps. More than a half-dozen iPad apps were used for this remix, including: Animoog ($29.99), ReBirth for iPad ($14.99), Apple’s GarageBand ($4.99), Magic Fiddle ($2.99) and iSyn Poly ($9.99). Check out this extremely well made music video after the break – it really is quite amazing.

Like yesterday’s Apps Gone Free, these three freebies shouldn’t be missed, especially the 2 EA offerings.
Fruity Jelly - Another Bulkypix game to go free (Anooki Jump being the other), Fruit Jelly is a solid physics puzzle game that has you rotating levels and moving Fruity to meet each stage’s objectives. The game offers cute (retina) graphics, 40 levels, 2 game modes and being a universal app, you can play it on both your iPhone or iPad.
The Sims Medieval - The latest installment in the Sims universal, The Sims Medieval goes old-school, taking you back in time to castles, kings, jesters and knights. If you’ve played other Sim games on iOS, like The Sims 3 World Adventures, you’ll know what to expect, though personally, The Sims Medieval is my favorite of the bunch.
SHIFT 2 Unleashed - Free for the first time ever, Shift 2 Unleashed is EA’s best looking racer, featuring a career mode with over 40 events and 40 cars. Local mutiplayer on WiFi or bluetooth lets you take on friends head-to-head. And with the most recent update, you can even connect to your big screen TV via the iPad 2′s HDMI out functionality. Shift 2 for the iPad is also free alongside the iPhone version.
These Freebies won't last long, so be sure to grab 'em pronto!
