This Tiny Dongle Promised To Turn Any iPad Into A Wireless Second Display

It is appalling that MacBook still does not have a touch display. We don’t know why Apple isn’t doing it, but in case you harbor the secret desire to experience touch display when using MacOS, here’s a nifty solution and it does not involved ripping out your existing display or any programming. Ok. This may not the perfect solution, but at least the Luna Display will let you go all out touchy with Mac OS. So what the hell is Luna Display? Well, on contrary to its product name, it is not actually a display, so don’t get all too excited about a $59 display. It is not.

This Frame Will Add Touchscreen Capability To Your Apple iMac

As a consumer, I personally think Apple is one stubborn organization who refuses to keep up with times. It seems like innovation has passed on with Jobs. And no, removing the headphone jack is NOT an innovation and neither was it courages. Don’t get me wrong. Apple products are still pretty up there (and so are the prices, if I may add), but it just not the same anymore. Take for example touchscreen display on desktop and laptop. The PC market is striving with this technology – thanks to Windows’ support for touch technology and yet, there are no signs of the Cupertino tech giant adopting it and don’t get us started with wireless charging. Touchscreen is the next logical step in PC, though not that it is needed. But we will find a use somehow, don’t we? Continue reading This Frame Will Add Touchscreen Capability To Your Apple iMac

Fusion Stand: A Minimalistic Home for Your iMac, Apple Display and iPhone

Another solution to declutter your desktop comes from iForte. After pioneering the first all-in-one stand with integrated dock and charging system designed with iMac and iPhone in mind, the San Francisco outfit is back with Fusion Stand which takes ‘clean look’ to a whole new level. The Fusion Stand looks absolutely clean and minimalistic. It really is. In fact, we think it is as minimal as a display/iMac stand can get without sacrificing functionality. That said, Fusion stand might be a good starting point if you have been wanting to streamline your desk and never get to doing it. Designed for iMac and Apple Display, Fusion also boasts a matching but optional smartphone cradle, which magnetically attaches to the front of the stand.

This Mac Pro Go Case Will Let You Lug Your Mac Pro Around In Style

desktop PC was never designed to be portable (that’s why it is called a desktop PC), much less a pro rig like Mac Pro, but that was before the new radical shape Mac Pro arrives. the new generation Mac Pro is not only physically small for a pro system but it is also one with relatively small footprint which makes one think: what if i could lug it around with ease? if that thought has been on your mind, then the Mac Pro Go Case By Waterfield Designs is right up your very narrow alley. don’t get us wrong; we love the idea of a Mac Pro bag, but we are just not sure how many would be toting around a 11 lbs rig around. anyway, as with all Waterfield Designs bag, this bag is cleverly thought out. designed in cylindrical shape and generously padded to fit the Mac Pro snugly, the Mac Pro Go Case features an exterior rectangular pocket to fit your Apple wireless keyboard and on the inside, there is a disc-shaped pouch for stowing away wireless mouse, cables and stuff that you deem fit.

Bluelounge Jimi USB Port Extension For iMac

want to extend your awkward, rear-facing USB port to the front of your iMac, but don’t want the ‘perk’ of clutter at the base of your iMac? well, then we are guessing Jimi might be of an assistant. Jimi is not a person. Jimi is a “J” shaped USB extension designed specifically for 21″ and 27″ iMac (slim unibody – those with crazy thin edges). just plug the male connector of the USB extension to the port of your choice at the back of your iMac, align the bottom of the “J” and snaps it into the downward air vent of your iMac, and you got yourself a super cool front-facing USB port without cluttering the foot of your Mac. not sure if you can deploy more than one though, but we are guessing that blocking too many of the air vents is not cool (pun not intended). then again, one is what most people will ever need, so not having many shouldn’t be a biggie. an exceedingly simple idea, but we think it is a brilliant one, nonetheless. what’s your take? the Bluelounge Jimi USB Port Extension for iMac is available now for just $14.95 a pop. product video follows after the break.

iMacompanion Routes a USB Port To The Front

sometimes the simplest idea could be a life changer and the iMacompanion is one such example. by its product name, you are probably clueless about what it is. well, it is basically a well crafted product that directs one of your USB port to front. lets face it: though it is nice and neat to have USB ports located at the back of the iMac, it is no fun trying to access it and the truth is, we have at least one device that we would often use the USB port. with this in mind, Wiplabs decided that it is high time to route one to front and doing it elegantly. sure, there are countless USB hubs out in the wild that does the same, but what Wiplabs did with the iMacompanion is actually pretty amazing.
