One thing I like about Apple devices is, they never try to cramp every possible features into their devices. It was never Apple’s idea for the devices to be bloated with unnecessary hardware and features. But therein lies the problem: it takes away quite a few features we still need like, for example, more USB ports. Seriously, a couple of USB Type-C port is never suffice. Never. The solution? Get a hub. The market has abundance of USB hub, but this one here from 23 Devices called Chocolate Hub 2 stood out from among the sea of hub as the first hub that also wireless charges your iPhone X and iPhone 8. I am sure I already have your attention because, it did when I first read saw it on TechSmartt. This chocolate bar will literally fix a major flaw in today’s MacBook Pro.

Apple may have filed the patent for an adapter that will bring MagSafe back to MacBook and possibly, other devices, but when exactly will it realize is anybody guess and so, for now, if you want MacSafe back, your only solution will be third party solutions like the Griffin BreakSafe and Snapnator, and now there is another to look to: Vinpok Bolt S. As far as uniqueness goes, Vinpok Bolt S has none. It is basically what both BreakSafe and Snapnator have to offer, but it does stand out for the sole fact that it can probably deal with large capacity-equipped 15-inch MacBook Pro. Continue reading This Upcoming USB-C MagSafe-style Adapter Promised 87W Of Power
Apple lost more than a benevolent and visionary leader when Jobs passed on. From Jobs passing up to today, the Cupertino-based tech giant has lost an headphone jack, an SD card slot, a glowing logo and most unfortunately, the iconic MagSafe too. To Apple’s credit, It did gain something though: a pair of wireless earbuds that is nothing short of an oddity. Sorry. Pardon me for less than kind words. I simply can’t stand the sight of two sticks dangling from someone’s ears that aren’t ear rings. Anyways, for those who is still mourning over the death of the legendary MagSafe, a patent filed by Apple may bring some hope for the MagSafe return. Well, kind of. Continue reading Patent Hints Apple Bringing MagSafe To USB-C Connector, Or Is It Really?
Belgium-based Bambooti is now is rocking real stone MacBook covers. I know. Laptop covers made out of real stone aren’t new at all. You can find quite a few companies touting them, but I am just going to let you in on this since it is on Kickstarter, which means they are usually going at significantly lower prices. So, how much are we talking about? We are talking about €65-75 (around US$72-83), or €35-45 (~ US$39-50) for the smartphone version. So, yes. Bambooti’s new collection has your smartphone covered too. As said, stone covers aren’t new, but still, we thought we should highlight some of the features Bambooti has to offer. Continue reading Bambooti Now Rocks Stone MacBook Covers Made Of Actual Stones
We understand the importance of innovation but perhaps, Apple didn’t realize that innovation does not mean removing things that actually works. That’s pretty damn frustrating, if you ask me. Yes. We are talking about the elimination of the super user-friendly, super ‘safe’ and arguably, the best feature of MacBook, MagSafe found on MacBook prior to the new MacBook Pro announced last week. And don’t even get us started with the killing of SD card which so many photographers relied on these days. To be fair, we should have already known when MagSafe was missing in the last MacBook, but we still can’t help but to ask: what’s up with those ‘killings’, Apple? Continue reading Here Are Two Alternatives That Will Put MagSafe Back To MacBook Pro
Not everyday you hear news of big competing corporations making products specifically for use with Apple’s products and so, when LG announced a couple of new displays designed specially for the new MacBook and MacBook Pro, it kind of raise some eyebrows. The displays, called UltraFine, come in two sizes: a 27-inch 5K model and a smaller 21.5-inch 4K variety. LG said the former is designed and optimized for the new MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 running macOS 10.12 or later, and with that, it is also the “world’s first” 5K display to tout Thunderbolt 3. Continue reading LG Out UltraFine Displays Designed Specifically For Apple’s New MacBooks
Well, actually, you can’t. I mean the MacBook Selfie Stick is a real thing, but in a way, it is not. You see, this weird product is actually an art project by trio Moises, Joh Yuyi, and Tom Galle, which means it ain’t available as a product your money can buy. It’s as weird as it is interesting, though we do find a little sarcasm in it. Like kind of mocking the whole narcissistic pop culture we are experiencing today. Anyways, a little about this in-your-face selfie stick. It is like any regular size selfie stick, except that it is significantly thicker to handle the weight of a laptop. Continue reading Thanks To MacBook Selfie Stick, Selfie Using MacBook Is A Possibility
With the new MacBooks, Apple ditched MacBook-saving MagSafe in favor of USB-C, a port which you use for everything, including charging and video output. Clearly, a single port isn’t going to cut it, but that perhaps is not the biggest concern among MacBook users; the biggest concern is, tripping over the cable will no longer be safe for your precious laptop. We have no doubt the Cupertino folks will address this sometime in the future, but for now, if you want to save yourself the heartbreak, you will have to look to Griffin Magnetic USB-C Power Cable. Continue reading Griffin’s BreakSafe Cable Puts MagSafe Back Into New MacBooks
if you love working out of your local cafe, you will know the pros and cons. the pros are obvious; like free-loading on the cafe’s electricity for your laptop, quick access to your much needed caffeinated drinks and such. as for cons, it will be constant stares by other guests who can’t find a table, plus stares from the local manager who only wish he could kick you out, and somebody tripping over your large backpack. speaking of which, you have to admit space is a valuable thing in today’s cafe and the last thing you want is to have someone tripping over your bag’s straps and stuff. that will kind of highlight your presence to everyone (and a good reason for you to leave, which you don’t want to). the solution? the Cargo Works 15-inch MacBook Module Sleeve. Continue reading MacBook Module Sleeve Lets You Carry Your Apple Essentials Without The Bulk
