Ten Observations From CES 2022

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.

Review – Mac Edition Radio Holiday Gift Guide 2021 – Storage from OWC, LaCie, Seagate, & SanDisk

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

Review – Holiday Gift Guide 2021 – Portable Docks from EZQuest & OWC

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.
