Is the Apple Battery Charger a Big Deal?

Is the Apple Battery Charger a Big Deal?
I’ve had an on again, off again relationship with rechargeable batteries. Being a photographer, I tend to go through dozens of batteries at a time in my flash, and that can get pretty irritating.

Apple Introduces New 27-inch LED Cinema Display
The Apple display lineup has been pretty lacking the last few years. There’s the ridiculously expensive 30-inch flat panel, clocking in at $1799, and then the 24-inch LED Cinema Display, which is great, but doesn’t match either of the iMacs that it would otherwise complement nicely. One thing I didn’t realize about the 24-inch model Read more…

Apple Introduces Magic Trackpad

Apple Introduces Magic Trackpad
Last week, we pontificated about this hypothetical product from Apple that just received FCC approval. As it turns out, the theories were correct, and now we have a new input device for Mac users. It’s called the Magic Trackpad, and it is, essentially, the same trackpad from a MacBook Pro, just made portable. It’s the Read more…
