Digitimes: Apple expected to launch thinner MacBook

You simply cannot trust Digitimes, but a MacBook line shakeup isn’t out of the question.

Experience VertiGo from WaterField Designs

That’s “Verti” as in vertical, and “Go” as in carry your MacBook somewhere.

Catalyst unveils waterproof sleeves for tablets and laptops

Back when I went to school, no one carried around laptops (which barely existed) or tablets (which didn’t exist). What did exist was rain and snow, and we surely had plenty of that. If you find yourself in the same environment this school year, but with $1,000 of technology to carry around, you may want to check out Catalyst before heading back to school.

Review: iSkelter Slate Mobile AirDesk

With its warm bamboo, crisp lines, and Apple-specific design, the iSkelter Slate Mobile AirDesk is a portable desk that turns any chair into a full-featured desk, and looks like Apple designed it. It lifts up your laptop to a more ergonomically correct height and keeps both your lap and computer cooler, which makes using a laptop on your lap a more pleasant experience.

Apple is the largest PC, tablet vendor in the market last Q1 2014

Being a certified Mac fan, I always like to see how Apple products are doing in the market. Just the other day, we reported the iPad is still No. 1 in Customer Satisfaction in the US. Now we’ve learned that with iPad and Mac shipments combined, Apple is the biggest PC vendor, capturing 17% of the market.

MacBook Air update rumored, super-slim 12-inch MacBook to come?

The last new MacBook model was the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display released back in October 2012, so Apple is arguably overdue for something to shake things up in the laptop category, which isn’t dead yet by a long shot. A 12″ slim MacBook is reportedly in development, combining the portability of the 11″ MacBook Air, the productivity of the 13″ model, and a Retina display.

Waterfield Designs Rough Rider leather messenger review

The Rough Rider Leather Messenger is all about maximizing space and carrying all of your digital devices in style. The bag is made of very high quality leather and waxed canvas (two of my favorite materials for products like this), and when you’re walking around with the bag (or running for the bus or train) the strap system keeps all of your stuff close to your body so it doesn’t move around too much.

Thoughts on the sad but inevitable end to the 13″ non-Retina MacBook Pro

I’m sad to see the old unibody machine go; I’d prefer to have an on-board optical drive, and I’m not convinced that the speedier access, silence, and shockproofness of solid state data storage are worth the trade-off in drive capacity one has to give up, but I didn’t put my money where my mouth is when I upgraded to a 13-inch MacBook Air last fall.
