6:00 PM, Sep. 18th, 2014 · · In-Depth Review

Apple laid the groundwork for the future of its iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch operating system last year with iOS 7, and now the company is building on that foundation with the launch of iOS 8.

NewerTech Voyager Q review

The Voyager Q dock from NewerTech allows you to access a 2.5- or 3.5-inch SATA drive with a Mac (or PC) using a conventional connection, USB, FireWire or eSATA.  It's a boon for those moving on from the old Mac Pros or PC towers but want to keep a SATA drive or two active.
