Apple released the new MacBook today. And that’s really the name: New MacBook. It’s not an Air nor is it a Pro, it is however lighter & thinner than the existing Air and features an improved 226 ppi display, & a re-designed track pad using Apple Watch’s Force Touch technology. Its single port in the rear is used for USB (the new reversible USB-C type), DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA. Aside from the standard silver color scheme, space gray and gold are also now offered.
Don’t store that stuff on your desktop. Instead, make this your “sketchy stick.” Toshiba’s Encrypted USB Flash Drive offers PIN activated secure access with its convenient onboard keypad.

Eero is the world’s first Wi-Fi “system.” A set of three will cover your whole home, eliminating dead spots and slow zones from every corner or closet. Even the back yard.

To support holographic display capabilities being built into Windows 10, Microsoft has developed the HoloLens, an untethered 3D headset with see-through lenses that merges digital content with the physical. It is not a VR screen like Oculus rather more like Google Glass & features a built-in CPU as well as something they’re calling a Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) to produce realistic HD holograms.
Intel’s Compute Stick basically packs a fully-functional Windows 8.1 into a device the size of a Chromecast. The $150 unit features 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage built-in & plugs straight into the HDMI port, giving you web access and the ability to do office work on your TV.
Created by French industrial designer Pauline Deltour, the LaCie Mirror is a work of art that also happens to be a 1TB USB hard drive. Encased in reflective Corning Gorilla glass and displayed in an ebony wood stand, it is also small enough to be portable.
Keewifi is the simplest router ever. It doesn’t require a password to connect to WiFi or a long, annoying configuration process to install. Just tap your device to it and you’re connected.

Sprout is a touch-screen Windows PC that has a touch-sensitive mat and projection surface where you’d expect to see a keyboard. The hood that extends over the upright screen is called the Illuminator and includes a scanner, depth sensor, camera and projector, allowing users to photograph objects and make 3D scans and work more seamlessly between the 2D digital world and the 3D physical one.
Carrying around that heavy-ass laptop is bad enough & then you’ve also gotta tote that 3-pound charger. But not if you get yourself a Dart. The Dart is the smallest, lightest laptop adapter ever. At 65W, it will provide all the juice you need to keep your laptop powered up & it’s six times lighter than that brick you’re dragging around now.
If your speed habit is getting hard to manage, LaCie’s latest device could be the remedy. This storage unit boasts a terabyte of onboard storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and near silent dual cooling fans. Speed? It’s reportedly fast enough to enable simultaneous plug-and-play RAW 4K video editing and display. That would make it the fastest portable storage device today.
