This is the MacBook Pro hub that Apple should have made

Apple’s solution to the new MacBook Pro‘s lack of conventional ports is dongles. A lot of dongles. $250 of dongles, actually.

But if you’re not a fan of carrying around a bunch of white pieces of floppy plastic, there are other options (apart from buying a different computer, I mean). The most visually appealing is the Arc Hub, a new concept that sticks all the ports you’ll ever need into an elegant circular hub.

Despite the fact that just looking at it makes Jony Ive’s dulcet tones appear inside my head, it’s not actually designed by Apple. Instead, it’s been conceived by a tiny Californian startup you’ve probably never heard of.

People are paying truly stupid amounts of money for Snapchat Spectacles

In 1759 Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, wrote that an “invisible hand” guides supply and demand, creating an equilibrium that advances the interests of society.

Well, in 2016, that invisible hand appears to be jerking us around. Exhibit A: people spending $2,300 on a pair of glasses that let you take a photo.

This adapter turns any headphones into Bluetooth headphones

We hate to break it to you guys, but the 3.5mm headphone jack is going away. Apple and Lenovo (Motorola) were just the first smartphone makers to get there, but pretty soon every other company is going to follow in their footsteps. You can complain about it all you want, but it’s happening whether you like it or not. So, you can either prepare yourself but getting a new pair of Bluetooth headphones, or you can snag the Mpow Streambot Bluetooth Wireless Adapter for under $17 on Amazon and turn any standard headphones into Bluetooth headphones.

AirPods Launch

AirPods might not hit store shelves until early 2017

AirPods might not hit store shelves until early 2017

About two weeks ago, Apple said that the company’s new AirPods weren’t going to hit store shelves as early as anticipated. Without getting into too much detail, Apple issued a prepared statement indicating that the company needed a “a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers.”

Recently, an optimistic, albeit sketchy, rumor hinted that Apple might begin shipping AirPods to retail outlets as early as late next week. Unfortunately, the rumor now appears to be off-the-mark in light of a new research report which claims that AirPods production might not even begin until December. And as if that weren’t frustrating enough, the initial production run is said to be for just limited quantities.
