This device fixes the worst thing about the MacBook Pro

MacBook Pro Graphics Card Upgrade
The best MacBook Pro money can buy right now is amazing. But it still can’t offer you the kind of gaming experience you expect from a computer, and the same goes for virtual reality. Apple might be exploring VR right now, and it’s likely that future MacBook Pros will have better graphic cards so they can handle more complex programs and games. But any existing MacBooks won’t be eligible for upgrades – after all, these are laptops. To fix that, one company has come up with a device that aims to give any laptop, including MacBooks, a huge boost: Meet the Wolfe.

This travel bag might make carry-ons great again

Nomatic Travel Bag Carry-on Luggage
For the longest time, I’ve been looking for the perfect carry-on bag. It needs to have plenty of available space so that you can easily squeeze in a few days’ worth of clothes, but also a decent numberof compartments for all my gadgets and the cables that go with them, as well as extra travelling accessories. Oh, and there must be space for shoes. I should be able to open it easily for security checks, and put it back together just as fast. Finally, I’d like to be able to carry it as a backpack most of the time, so my hands are free. Not a long or demanding list then! Luckily, it looks like Kickstarter is on it.

Amazon will finally let you buy all those Kickstarters you don’t need

Kickstarter Amazon Store
Kickstarter is a fantastic way to get brand-new technology for cheap. But apart from the risk of being scammed, it's also quite unsatisfying. You pay your money, and a couple months later (if you're lucky!), something comes in the mail. It's the opposite of the two-day shipping satisfaction of Amazon Prime, in other words. So Amazon is trying to fix the problem by adding a dedicated section on its site for buying Kickstarter products.

The new Glif smartphone mount is the smartest of its kind

Studio Neat has taken its sweet time to launch the sequel, but it was worth the wait; it’s a marvelously clever piece of engineering. I spent some time with the prototype to take a… Read More
