This USB drive enables you to access the files on it either by plugging it into a computer like any other USB drive, or by connecting to it over Wi-Fi (using its own Wi-Fi capabilities — no network required) from an iOS device or from a computer using a web browser. It costs a bit more than a standard USB drive, but it’s hugely useful.
This week we double your pleasure with great deals on Macs that not only don't crack the thousand-buck threshold, but also happen to be the freshest Macs on the block. No refurbs over a year old — and some are even younger! Let's see what this week's discounts are all about.
Portability is the name of the game this week. With summer vacations in the planning stages (or nearly started), you're looking to travel light. And who can blame you? Last summer's crushing heat made the idea of lugging around our 15.4" MacBook Pro a no-starter. But with an iOS device in your pocket or bag, you're floating even lighter than the Airs. Let's see what deals will help you stay cool this summer.
Apple and Samsung might not always get along, but it's hard to deny that Samsung can make good stuff. Case in point: this portable solid-state drive. The T1 surprised us with a design that’s not just small and light but which also looks and feels good. Its curved edges make it comfortable in the pocket, too.
Barely a day after The New York Times published a piece on Palo Alto Networks' discovery of "WireLurker," a new malware threat in China that infects both Macs and iOS devices through USB transmission, Apple has already taken steps to neutralize the damage. In a statement to The Wall Street Journal, the Cupertino company noted that the harmful software was "available from a download site aimed at users in China," and now it's preventing affected users from even opening the harmful apps on their Macs.
Occasionally, we like to take a break from featuring Macs on discount and turn our attention full on to the iOS devices that make our day-to-day lives easier, better, more connected (and more distracted). So this week's round up of the latest, greatest deals on Apple gear will feature all your favorite handhelds, so let's get tapping.
One of the big bits of tech news that emerged over the last couple of days was the reveal of reversible USB cord connectors, which means the days of playing the guessing game to figure out how to plug in a USB cord are at an end. And according to photos posted by China's Dianxinshouji.com (via MacRumors), Apple users may be among the first people to see them.
Today we focus on the little guys. The smaller end of the market of Apple products. The entry level. If you've been trying to convince a friend or relative to make the switch, these lower priced options might just be the ticket to helping convince them what you've known all along.
And so the holiday season is upon full force. Well good. We've got good news for Apple, as usual, good news for those of you waiting for your iPhone 5S, some sweet games and some sweeter deals, and free music -- who doesn't love free music? Plus, let's all enjoy a good laugh at Android OS adoption rates as shown above. They're hilarious. All that and more, just step inside.
