Obi Wan, it is a Moon, and also a smart hub with levitating camera

NEWS – Technology startup 1-Ring Inc. has created the smart home hub called Moon. The first thing anyone (who hasn’t been under a rock for 41 years) will notice is that the camera part of the hub looks like the Star Wars Death Star. Then again, the first thing people may notice is that the …

Satechi Type-C Multi-port Adapter 4K with Ethernet V2 review

REVIEW – As newer laptops become thinner and more portable, they have fewer and fewer ports available. As a result, users have to purchase USB hubs to provide the missing necessary ports. My Lenovo Yoga 730 only has two USB Type-C ports (Thunderbolt 3), one USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a 3.5 mm audio input/output jack …

The Imuto 10-in-1 USB-C hub gives you all of the connectivity that you need

In my home studio, I currently have 4 USB hubs connected to my main computer, for a total of 18 data transfer and 3 charging ports, not including the 8 USB ports that are built-in to the computer. Despite that reasonable number of ports, I still find myself saying that I need another USB hub …

DockCase MacBook sleeve with built in USB C hub review

I love my 12″ MacBook that I bought as a refurb from Amazon a couple years ago. It’s the perfect size and the perfect weight for everyday use and especially for travel. I actually downsized from a 13″ MacBook Pro just to get a smaller and lighter machine. But downsizing also meant that I would have to …

QICENT 10 Port USB Hub review

The 10 port USB hub from QICENT is pretty self-explanatory.  After receiving this sample to review, the particular model that I received is no longer available for sale on Amazon or anywhere else that I could find for that matter.  Other offerings from QICENT are similar and can be found on Amazon but this particular model seems to have disappeared. 

New Satechi Type-C Pro Hub for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros offers connectivity in a slim package

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 …

IOGEAR USB-C Ultra-Slim Dual Display Docking Station review

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. …

SCOSCHE introduces new USB-C hub with AV features

Some newer laptops like Apple’s latest MacBook Pro use a USB-C port for both charging and connecting to accessories. But without USB TYPE-A connectors (which I guess is what we’re supposed to call the “old” style USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectors), how do you charge your iPhone, Nexus 6P or other USB-A devices? SCOSCHE comes …

Ventev S500 desktop charging hub review

One of the drawbacks to having a gadget addiction is the resulting clutter. Much to my wife’s chagrin, my house is usually littered with gadgets, plugs, cords, etc. I’m always looking for ways to help me organize things better, but generally find myself coming up short. Recently, I was given the chance to review the Ventev …

TechOrbits Qi Wireless & 8-port USB charger review

I have been obsessed with wireless charging ever since I got my Galaxy S6 Edge+ phone.  Cutting myself loose from charging cables is a wonderfully freeing experience, and I honestly think that wireless charging is going to be the future and all sorts of surfaces around the house, restaurants, and the office will be wireless …
