    Do you all think this is safe...

    So we all know that some companies hide their dirt regarding security issues. Given this fact, it is with hesitation that I purchase items that I have had my eye on. I'm hoping to get feedback regarding my concerns as to whether or not I can trust these items for network connectivity, and...

    Is it worth buying Apple usb-c to lightning cables?

    The cable that came with my iPhone 11 is broken and I need a new one, not only for charging but also for backups to my Mac. Because of the backups I am interested in (data) reliability, otherwise I'd certainly buy a much cheaper third party cable. Is there a difference? Can third party cables...

    USB C Magic Mouse and Keyboard - When?

    I just can't see spending 300.00 on a keyboard and mouse that uses a lighting connector to charge. Anyone have any thoughts on when Apple might release a new version of these devices?

    Anyone know why the M1 Air only pulls 5W from a 5V/2.4A charger?

    I have an Anker USB 3.0 (USB Type A) charger that can output 5V/2.4A for a maximum of 12W per port. When I charge my iPhone with a USB-A to Lightning cable, it pulls the full 12W. But when I use a USB 3.0 Type A to USB-C cable to charge my M1 MacBook Air, it only pulls 5W from the charger...

    MagSafe 3 or USB C

    From what I've read so far, it seems that MagSafe is merely faster at charging than USB C. However, I currently use a MBP 2019, with USB C, and all my accessories work with it fine. Would it not be better to merely stick with a USB C MBP, versus a MagSafe one? Was thinking of upgrading my MBP...

    Thunderbolt/USB C hub recommendations for the new iMacs (2021)

    The new iMacs only have USB C ports, and my purposes include some legacy USB 3 hardware and an SD card slot. Many existing hubs/docks seem to cater to MacBooks with redundant features like: VGA/DVI output… gross, don't need that; Ethernet input, which the iMac already has built into the power...
