Last year, Lynktec improved on its original battery powered electronic stylus by including a rechargeable battery. TMO gave it a 5 out of 5 rating. On Aug 13, Lynktec relased an improved version that's lighter, has a new nib material for a better feel and is optimized for the iPad Air 2 display, all the while retaining its compatibility with all other iOS devices. John Martellaro reports on this exceptional stylus.
As he promised last week, in this week's Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves he tells you how he does it (with "it" being backing up several terabytes of data).
A charging stand for an Apple Watch should be handsome, well thought out in that it hides the charging cable, presents the Apple Watch nicely, is convenient to use, and has additional uses. The Griffin WatchStand does all that.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 wireless mobile mouse is designed especially for mobile OS X and Windows users, and that means tracking on just about any surface, including glass. Notable is that it can be used with Bluetooth or a USB dongle. The scrolling capabilities make it a killer product. Features and feel are top notch. It's the best mouse John Martellaro has ever used.
Orders begin today for Sonos's latest addition to its line-up, the Limited Edition PLAY:1 Tone. Coming in full, murdered-out black or pristine white, these new skin variations on the PLAY:1 make a visual statement. Depending upon your color and placement choices these new models will either be the centerpiece of the room or completely fade into invisibility, either of which may work quite well for you.
Dr. Mac has two small mesh bags packed with all the things he likes to have when he travels. In this episode of his long-running Rants & Raves column he shows off a few items he considers essential for his travelling bag(s) of tricks.
For some users, the elegance and convenience of an Apple Watch charging stand is essential. And soon, these stands will be even more useful when watchOS 2.0 introduces the "Wake me up" feature. John Martellaro looks at two such charging stands that are especially useful for travel.
Our own Dr. Mac has been using a new MacBook and while he found a lot about it to like, its single USB-C port was a dealbreaker (though he did like almost everything else about it).
After a nine year journey, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will arrive at Pluto on July 14. The Pluto Safari iOS app from Simulation Curriculum has all the details: news, the spacecraft's timeline, current location, various views from different locations and a countdown timer. John Martellaro takes a quick look at this terrific free app.
In this week's Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves: The thrilling conclusion to Dr. Mac's Guaranteed Gifts for Dads & Grads... with some nifty speakers for your loved one’s listening pleasure and much more.
