The Apple MagSafe Adapter – Winding it the Right Way

The Apple MagSafe Adapter - Winding it the Right Way
Funny story: I bought my first MacBook back in 2006 I believe, and with it came a MagSafe adapter. I used that computer for several years until one day, I started a job at a place where people used MacBooks all the time. I was walking by my boss’ office around closing time, and I Read more…

New Mac Pros Mean the Old Ones are Cheap

New Mac Pros Mean the Old Ones are Cheap
Oh, the Mac Pro. Device of people who really need to crank out resource-intensive projects. It’s what some video editors prefer for editing their movies, and what some designers love for working on magazines and other work. It’s also the price of a used car, and with the latest update, a grand more expensive than Read more…

Yet Another iPad Case

Yet Another iPad Case
You know what I did the other day? I bought myself a Moleskine journal. Why? Well sure, I could’ve spent $2 on a regular spiral notebook, but sometimes I really enjoy spending 10 times the amount of money I should to get a very similar product. Honestly, as weird as it sounds, part of me Read more…

Rumor: 11.5-inch MacBook Air Coming Soon

Rumor: 11.5-inch MacBook Air Coming Soon
Back in the day, before I ever owned an Apple computer, I lusted after them secretly. My neighbor had a G5 tower, which looked beautiful sitting next to his fancy 20-inch monitor, and another friend of mine had a PowerBook that looked so pretty and shiny.

My wife on the other hand, is a kitchen designer, and as such, knows every species of wood out there by sight. It’s Read more…

Adding Luxury To Your iPhone 4

Adding Luxury To Your iPhone 4
The iPhone 4 is a pretty luxurious item, with its glass front and back, plus the fancy stainless steel bezel. The first time I held it, I knew I was holding something pretty special. But like many things, you can always do it up even fancier. You don’t have to go overboard, but you can Read more…

New AppleTV Coming Soon?

New AppleTV Coming Soon?
Oh, the AppleTV. I have one myself, and although I do appreciate its usefulness, it’s not quite everything that I was looking for. I’d like 1080P resolution, and a bit more flexibility with my library. But alas, that’s not set to happen anytime soon, so I just deal with it until I buy a Mac Mini Read more…

Even More iPad Stands: The Loop

Even More iPad Stands: The Loop
Oh, the iPad stand. It seems like there can never be enough versions of them floating around the marketplace, each one with their own little quirks. Some are sleek, some are portable, others are easy to fold up and put out of the way. In this case, we’ve got something just a touch different. It’s Read more…

Portable Mousing: Alupad

Portable Mousing: Alupad
I found this one when I discovered the UpStand earlier, and it got my attention. At first, the concept seems a bit weird. After further consideration however, it made sense. I was working a job last week, which involved working on a brand-new 27-inch iMac. It was three days old, so of course, it came Read more…
