Gas is not in this one but lots of other people are including some from OWC, a few MyMac-ers, and a whole lot more all from Guy’s mobile podcasting rig. If you couldn’t be at Macstock, this is just as good. Actually no it isn’t but still fun!

The field of full-sized Bluetooth keyboards for Mac is getting crowded. The earlier versions of Kanex’s multi-synch did not compete well against giants like Logitech and Zagg, but this latest Kanex entry may start to change that.

blumoo

Blumoo is a universal remote and Bluetooth hub that enables your iOS, Android, Apple Watch, and Amazon Echo to control your entertainment equipment and stream audio via a free mobile app. The installation was easy to set up but the configuration was a bit of a challenge. The Blumoo Universal Remote has a low profile, weighing 1.2 lb. and has dimensions of 2(L) x 2.8(W) x 2 (H) inches. It works by transmitting an infrared signal to any device that recognizes the programmed remote code. The mobile device must be at a distance of 150 feet or less to successfully connect via Bluetooth to the Blumoo. The mobile app is used to configure the remotes for your entertainment devices.

Thief: Master Thief Edition
U.S. $32.99
Feral Interactive

Thief crossbow Kube

Join the continued adventures of the master thief Garrett as he continues his adventures ten years after the end of the prior game. While this is almost into Duke Nukem Forever territory, Thief: Master Thief Edition game was actually worth the wait. From the start there is the same ambiance that the original games had, with lots of shadows and places to hide. The AI in the game can be annoying at times when it decides that a guard may hear something and stick around and peer into the shadows to try and find you. Fortunately, there are things that can be done about those nosey guards.

Macally Aluminum USB 3.0 External 2.5” SATA Hard Drive Enclosure

Macally

Kube Macally company photo

What’s thin light and has a shiny case?

That would be the Macally Aluminum USB 3.0 External 2.5” SATA Hard Drive Enclosure.  This tiny enclosure packs some serious speed. The enclosure comes as an empty shell. All it has in the box is the USB 3.0 cable and the lightweight aluminum shell. The enclosure is held together with four screws, two on each end. You can take off either end to insert your 2.5 inch drive but the end with the pretty blue light has to control electronics, so it would be best to take off this end for ease of installation.

Chalk Ink Wet Wipe Markers – Review

On July 13, 2016, in Review, by Donny Yankellow

Wet Wipe Markers
Chalk Ink
Price: Varies by pack

markers

In my over ten years at MyMac I have reviewed a variety of items. Whenever possible I try to review art related items like drawing tablets, painting apps, and similar creative stuff. When John Nemo, the MyMac reviews editor, asked me to review Chalk Ink Markers I thought why not? It isn’t tech specific, but it is related to my field of expertise. Plus, maybe someone has a tech business that is looking into having hand made signs.

Chalk markers are very popular these days. You see them used a lot at coffee shops and food stores on signage. They are suppose to be easy to clean off and look like paint, making it a great option compared to real chalk. I actually use them in my classroom for things I need on a chalkboard for a length of time. However, the ones I used this past year did not work very good and were difficult to use drawing on a vertical surface. I was anxious to see how the Chalk Ink markers worked.
