You can start using Timing, too, and by visiting TimingApp.com/MacObserver you not only get a 14-day free trial, you also qualify for a TMO-exclusive 10% discount when you purchase!

TMO CES 2017 Coverage Sponsor: Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Dock

· · Weekly Sponsorship

Our thanks to Elgato for joining us this year as a sponsor for TMO’s CES 2017 coverage. The effort, planning, and expense it takes to comb through all the noise at CES and bring you targeted, relevant coverage is quite large, and without our sponsors we wouldn’t be able to do it all for you. Elgato sees the value in this and was very quick to jump on board to ensure that you would get the very best of what we have to offer this year. We’re very thankful for that, and we hope you are, too.

The Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Dock enables you to connect everything to your MacBook Pro all at once. It allows you to use only one cable to charge your computer, drive dual displays, network at full Ethernet speeds and more – and harness the full potential of USB-C. They’ve boiled it down to something quite simple: One cable. No compromises.
