When I was using an iMac as my main computer, I loved almost everything about it except for one thing... It was always a pain in the you-know-what when I needed to plug a cable or flash drive into one of the USB ports. In Apple's infinite wisdom (or lack thereof) they located the USB [...]

Jyst Mobile AluDisc_2

Recently, I reviewed the Just Mobile HeadStand Headphone Hanger. It was my introduction to the minimalist design ethos of an accessory company whose products could have been made by Apple themselves.

Sometime around 1975, it was suggested that because of computers, paper would become obsolete.  It hasn't happened yet and I find myself buying a new printer every now and again.  I've never been completely satisfied by the output quality or performance of my purchases, but maybe things will change now that I have the XP-950 [...]

Earlier this week it was announced that LogMeIn, a popular software application that allows remote control of computers, would no longer be free.
