Satechi’s Premium Aluminum Monitor Stand (Amazon - $69.99) is just the thing for the organized, busy Mac professional.  The style and design complement Apple’s aesthetic designs. It holds a Mac, iMac, or Macbook. It sits four inches off the desk surface and is 9.5 inches long. It has four USB 3.0 ports on the front and a USB 3.0 connector (with cable) tucked inside. There is a large hole in the back to thread cables out of the way, and it holds up to  200 pounds.

If you take photos, you should check out Noiseless, the brand new Mac app from Macphun. It requires Yosemite. It eliminates noise from your pictures, those little dots that make them fuzzy-looking. Most frequently they show up in photos taken inside where there is no adequate light source. I love using this.

You can also crop or share your photo from the application. Now for the very best part, right now you can download an early preview version for free.
