REVIEW – I switched from a huge 27″ iMac to a MacBook more than 7 years ago and although I still use an external monitor with it when I work in my office (Gadgeteer HQ), I sometimes wish for some extra screen real estate when I’m working away from home. One solution is to buy

REVIEW – If you’ve been reading The Gadgeteer for a while, you’ll know that I like to bend gadgets to my will. That usually means that I try to turn tablets and smartphones into my only computer.

REVIEW – Just recently, I acquired access to a MacBook and I immediately saw the need to have a USB-C hub to be able to use all of my desired accessories and peripherals. This was especially true since the only ports on my MacBook Pro are 2 USB-C ports. A couple of weeks ago, I got the

I have a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter that I use to connect my 12-inch MacBook to an LG 29″ monitor on my desk. The size of that adapter doesn’t matter to me because it never leaves the desk. But if I carried a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter with me in my gear bag
I recently sold my 13″ MacBook Pro to a friend at work after having purchased a refurbed 12″ MacBook. You might think that’s a step in the wrong direction going from the powerful MBP to a slower MB. But I absolutely love the MB because it’s small, lightweight, and does everything I need in a
Recently Julie and I both purchased 12″ MacBooks and while extremely light and portable, the sleek and slim laptop is lacking in ports to say the least. That is a known “design feature” and for me, really is not an issue when on the move. But there are definitely moments where going port-less is a bit of an inconvenience.
If you happened to catch my gadget diary post from yesterday where I was talking about buying a laptop dedicated to travel, you may have also seen where I said it will probably be a 12″ MacBook. If this happens, I’ll want a new travel charger to go along with my travel computer and the new

Since switching to the Nexus 6P last fall, I’ve gone from charging with the included Type-C cable, to charging wirelessly using a Qi wireless patch from Astore. The wireless patch worked fine and allowed me to use my existing Qi chargers, but left the Type-C port on the phone unusable and a little plastic bump
