The HyperDrive Is The One Dongle To Rule Them All

We’re not going to make any commentary about how Steve Jobs is probably rolling in his grave. We’re not going to whine about Apple’s increasingly boneheaded design decisions. Instead, we’re just going to leave this right here. It’s the HyperDrive, and it gives you back all the freaking ports Apple took away on the new MacBook Pro. Oh, you don’t think you can work with only 3 Thunderbolt ports and 2 USB-C ports? That’s fine, here’s a sleek, nicely designed adapter that features USB-A ports, a SD Card or microSD slot, HDMI port, Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB-C port and USB 3.1 USB-C port. It’s able to handle data throughput speeds of up to 50GB/s, and full power charging since it handles up to 100W. It’s small enough to carry in a pocket and people are so excited about it, the Kickstarter is now funded almost 5 times over. It’s a $69 pledge, with deliver in March 2017. But hurry up, quantities are limited.

MacBook Pro Security Case

By David Ponce

Almost as soon as the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display was announced, bank accounts everywhere were drained of upwards of $2,000. Matter of fact, this dreamy machine cost a small fortune with some configurations reaching close to $4k. And yet Apple didn’t see fit to include a cable lock port on the device. You can remedy this unfortunate situation with the above MacBook Pro Security case. The clear acrylic base attaches to the laptop and features a security lock. It also slightly elevates the MBP for added ventilation, though we suspect that this became a “feature” only after the fact. If you wish, you can add a top cover and completely envelop your portable, though at this point you’ll be adding 0.7lbs of weight to your setup, which may become a deal killer for some. Still, if protection is high on your mind, $70 will get you this product which includes the cable.
