Stay Safe from Variants with Mac Edition Radio!

 

CES 2022 struck me as an example of “on the other hand.” What I mean by this, is that fellow Mac Edition Radio editor Nancy Burlan and I debated attending CES. On the positive side, she hadn’t been to Las Vegas in years (apart from our numerous visits at the Las Vegas Airport) so we thought it would be fun for her to experience the conference. On the other hand, we had the very real and pervasive fear of catching COVID. Show organizers CTA (Consumer Technology Association) assured CES attendees that everyone involved - workers, attendees, and exhibitors - all needed to show proof of vaccination.

Each year, The Daguerreian Society, a group of scholars, collectors, archivists, gallerists, photo historians, and lovers of photography, gather to discuss advances in the field. The annual symposium has been held via Zoom for the past two years, and this years meeting was even better then last. Read on for a full report on the Annual Symposium held in October 2021. If you love photography, then consider joining the society!

If possible, this year's CES was even stranger than last year's—mainly because it was blended/hybrid instead of all digital. There were plenty of things to talk about regarding CES 2022, but John Mulhern III will stick to the technical ones for this article.

When digital cameras first emerged on the scene, as a photographer I used to think, “How many shots can I fit on this 256 MB card?” and I would know that I’d need to have expensive storage available to download the files. Well, those days are still with us, but instead of MBs, we are talking about gigabytes, terabytes, and even petabytes. Fortunately, vendors have you covered, with affordable, incredibly fast, light weight, and durable storage options. Here are some favorites from LaCie, Seagate, SanDisk, and Other World Computing

I Scream, You Scream! “Ports, Where are the Ports?” So, which is it, lighter and thinner, with no room for ports, or a bit heavier and thicker, and more built-in ports? Personally, I like the idea of not needing adapters, but hey, I’m probably a Luddite. Still most new laptops never have enough ports, and many newer drives, like the USB drives listed above, have single ports, so don’t permit daisy-chaining. What to to? Docks are the answer! In this review we look at two portable docks, the OWC USB-C Travel Dock and the EZQuest USB-C Multimedia Hub Adapter.
