It comes with five different snap on plugs for the following countries; US, Canada, Japan, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and China. The Twelve South PlugBug...

Remember when you only had to worry about hackers getting access to your computer (microphone, camera, and data)? Ahh, the good old days. Now that we are fully aware of our governments addiction to spying on its citizens, it makes sense to disable microphones and cameras when and where possible. I am not saying that you should open...

For the non-youngsters amongst us, this keyboard should spark some nostalgia for the typewriters of yesterday. The round keycaps and classic looks are just easy on the eyes. Take this old school look and add in wireless (pair up to three devices simultaneously), or wired modes, Apple Magic keyboard layout, multiple colors, and mechanical keys and you have the Lofree Keyboard. Prices and availability are a bit of a mystery at the moment. ...

Apple has made some controversial moves with their latest product releases. Some of these moves include removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, removing the SD card reader from the MacBook line-up, and switching to USB-C on the MacBook and MacBook Pro models.

There are times when the clean/simple Apple MacBook power adapters are just not the best size/orientation. The picture above pretty much sums it up. You can’t use the standard MacBook power adapter in some outlets. This Ten One Design MacBook power adapter wall-plug, the Blockhead Side-Facing Plug ($19.95), works with all MacBook power adapters. It even works with the 10w & 12w iPad power adapter...

It is available in 13-inch and 15-inch both of which are improved, the 15-inch is 67% brighter, and has 25% more colors. The 13-inch version is 17% thinner and weighs just 3-pounds. The 15-inch version weighs just 4-pounds. Above the keyboard is the new sliver of a retina display called Touch Bar and it has multi-touch controls and more. The Apple MacBook Pro TouchBar adapts to specific applications, for example if you are in...

File this one under disgruntled employee or evil trolling. The USB Kill 2.0 ($49) looks like a standard USB memory stick but it is so much more evil. USB Kill 2.0 has one job, to kill desktops, laptops, TV’s, or just about anything with a USB port. When plugged in, it begins collecting power from the USB port (5V, 1-3A) until it reaches around...
