As an owner of a standing desk, chances are there are actual cases where you will be standing for long periods of time, typing your life away. The surface beneath your feet can eventually hurt your feet, so why not get yourself a nice floor mat? Fully’s got your back in this regard. If you read my previous review of the Fully Standing Desk or even the Tic Toc Chair, you might think it’s a bit odd I enjoy sitting at my standing desk. In the times I am actually standing however, I use Fully’s Topo Mini Anti-Fatigue Mat ($89)….
It’s a well-known fact that raising your laptop to a better viewing height and adding a keyboard will improve your posture and help your back and neck. What you use to raise your screen opens up a ton of possibilities. We’ve seen plenty of metal stands, but here’s something new and elegant — the Galen Leather Walnut Wood MacBook Stand.
It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, and with that being the case, a lot of traditional devices that came with USB 3.0 will be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future. This includes the external hard drives that we use today.
I recently “renovated” my home office. It now has a new 13” MacBook Pro, an UPLIFT standing desk from HumanSolution, a big beautiful monitor from AOC and AudioEngine HD3 Bookshelf speakers. Key to this setup, however, is the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. At $349.99 it is pricey, but it turns my laptop into an amazing desktop.
It’s not very often that I open a box and have to stop what I’m doing to inhale the fragrant smell of fine leather wafting as I unwrap the contents, but that’s exactly what happened when I recently opened a package from Galen Leather. What was inside the box? Beautiful cases for my iPhone, 12″ MacBook, and 13″ MacBook Pro.
If you need to carry a high-capacity external drive with you when you travel or go to work, you’ll likely be interested in making that memory device as small as possible. Take a look at the Western Digital My Passport SSD; it’s 1 Terabyte, rated for 515MB/s, and it measures just 3.6″ long by 1.8″ wide by 0.4″ thick.
Ever since I finally received my standing desk by Fully, there was one other item that I knew my setup needed to make it complete: the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock. OWC announced that they would be creating their Thunderbolt 3 Dock way back in 2016 when the MacBook Pro was announced, and after a few delays, and a lot of other reviews of standalone imitators, the popular Mac vendor sent over their Thunderbolt 3 Dock. Promising to deliver more connectivity, power and charging capability than the previous Thunderbolt 2 Dock, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a “what can I not do”…
It’s not often that a monitor really piques my interest, but the Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved Monitor has done just that. The company’s first 37.5 ultrawide curved screen monitor will be perfect for anyone who needs a lot of screen room while using multiple windows.
If you have a 2016 MacBook Pro, you may want to consider picking up one of Belkin’s new Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. The new Express Dock is fast. It is powerful. And, with just a single cable, it turns your MacBook into a desktop. At $349.99 it’s pricey, but it is a serious piece of hardware.
A couple of months ago I reviewed CharjenPro’s USB-C 5-in-1 hub for the MacBook Pro. It was an absolutely great accessory for the 2016 Macbook Pro that gives you a lot of the functionality that Apple stripped away when they went all USB-C for their latest Macbook.
Are you tired of smearing your phone or tablet screen with finger grease every time you tap on it? Do you usually have a ballpoint pen on you? If so, why not combine something you already always carry with something you’ll also enjoy using? Take a look at the Just Mobile AluPen Twist L or S; the ballpoint pen stylus.
When’s the last time you had to participate in a conference call? If that’s not something you do regularly, then you might think that there’s no reason for you to be interested in a review of the Jabra Speak 710 … but you’d be wrong.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Traveling out of the country can be a bit tricky if you know that you’ll need data while gone, especially when you need to be able to get work done. If you’re traveling to an area where you can’t expect solid hotel internet service or if wirelessly tethering your laptop to your phone isn’t an option, RoamingMan WiFi Hotspot can help.
USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 are the new connectivity hotness, and the docking opportunities are a big reason. Under the right conditions, a single cable can provide video, audio, data and power, not to mention high bandwidth for devices like fast storage arrays and external graphics cards.
It’s not enough that SanDisk has managed to stuff 256GB into a microSD card, they’ve also managed to make apps run from it faster. Check out the new256GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD with A1 App Performance.
Mad Catz Interactive has been a global provider of creative entertainment products for years, and that still seems to be the case as the company unveiled three innovations in console and PC gaming that you have to see to believe.
A worldwide leader in desktop computing and various other products for both business and home office processionals, Kensington made multiple announcements that are worth checking out.
A personal favorite of mine, Elgato announced today their Thunderbolt 3 Dock, which has been a hit so far here at CES 2017. The Thunderbolt 3 Dock by Elgato looks to be one of the best ways, if not THE way you’ll want to connect and charge your MacBook Pro or Windows notebook with just a single cable.
A few months ago we reviewed the FINsix Dart Laptop charger, which is a slim laptop charger that not only makes your backpack that much lighter but leaves a smaller footprint that the typical brick that comes with most laptops. So it’s no surprise that the company has announced an update, which continues on the success of the original Dart.
Do you use your laptop as your main computer, hooked to a monitor and keyboard when you’re working at your desk? Then you probably know it doesn’t take much before the fan starts whirring and your laptop starts to get hot. If that’s your experience, then you’ll want to take a look at the new SVALT High-Performance Cooling Dock.
