Duet turned my old iPad into a fast MacBook display

I just spent $ 10 on Duet Display to turn my aging iPad into a secondary MacBook display. That’s about 5 times more than I’d normally consider prudent for an app, but it was worth every penny.

I’ve been a daily ipad-as-secondary-display user for years. My goto app had always been Air Display (and then Air Display 2). That just changed. For the same price as Air Display 2 I’m able to ditch the unstable Wi-Fi connection typical to these remote display apps and extend my workspace over an old 30-pin USB cable. That’s given new life to my three-year-old MacBook Air and three-year-old iPad 2. No stutters, no lag, and it’s surprisingly robust enough to support video playback. Duet says its app was developed by a team of ex-Apple engineers and…

HP’s new laptop looks like a MacBook Air and is made for hardcore business users

HP is today introducing a new laptop that’s thinner and lighter than the MacBook Air — a stylish Windows 8 machine called the EliteBook Folio 1020. Even though HP is boasting about this laptop’s slim size, it isn’t necessarily taking aim at Apple here. HP says that it’s designed the Folio 1020 with office users in mind: the laptop includes a proprietary enterprise port and a fingerprint reader for security, and it’s said to pass military-grade drop and shock tests, since office workers are apparently quite clumsy.

The Folio 1020 comes in two different models

This laptop is otherwise along the lines of what you would expect. It has 8GB of RAM, an SSD that ranges from 128GB to 256GB, and a claimed 9 hours of battery life. It’s also…

Microsoft’s latest Mac vs. PC ad recruits Lenovo to fight the MacBook Air

Microsoft reignited the classic Mac vs. PC war back in August by targeting the MacBook Air in its new Surface Pro 3 ads. That attack is continuing today thanks to a new ad that features Lenovo’s new Yoga 3 Pro. Microsoft places Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air head-to-head with Lenovo’s Yoga 3 Pro, initially highlighting the 17mm “thickness” of the MacBook Air vs. the 13mm “thinness” of the Yoga 3 Pro. Most of the ad then focuses on the flexibility of the tablet, touchscreen, and tent modes of Lenovo’s latest convertible, with Apple’s laptop failing to “dance” in amusing comparisons. The dance-off ends with the MacBook Air admitting it’s “game over” and closing its lid.

Apple’s MacBook Pros with Retina display now have faster processors and more memory

Apple’s just updated its top of the line MacBook Pro with Retina display lineup with speedier chips, right in the middle of the back to school season. New today are three updated 13-inch models, and two 15-inch notebooks that have Intel’s newest i5 and i7 Haswell processors. The entry-level 13-inch model now comes with a 2.6 Intel Core i5 chip and 8GB of memory instead of the 2.4GHz Core i5 chip, and 4GB of memory Apple was offering yesterday. Apple’s also made a change on the entry-level 15-inch model, bumping the memory up to 16GB from 8GB and the processor from 2.0GHz to 2.2GHz.

10 Portable Batteries For Your MacBook

One of the things that the MacBook has going for it is its pretty solid battery life except if you have to be on the move a lot. It is not advisable to leave your MacBook plugged into a power source for long periods of time as it will shorten your battery’s lifespan. But if you are always travelling with your MacBook, it won’t be easy to find a power source to plug in, when you are running low on juice. That’s where portable batteries come in to save the day.

MacBook Portable Battery

Portable batteries power your laptops like powerbanks power your smartphones and tablets – giving you a constant power source, at your disposal. They are also compact and light, and thus easy to bring about. If you are looking for external power packs to keep your MacBook running for longer, here are 10 great battery backups you should check out. Note that most of the battery packs in this list do not come with the Apple Magsafe connector.

1. GreatShield LuminousPower External Battery Pack

GreatShield LuminousPower is a 7800mAh capacity external battery pack made for portability. It comes with a built-in short circuit to prevent your MacBook and the battery from over-charging or over-heating.

GreatShield is powered by a Samsung lithium-ion battery that promises over 500 charge cycles.
