I’ve always had an issue with auxiliary cords. Either they are too long for comfort, or they won’t connect with my device because my case is too bulky on my phone. With the AirBlue Bluetooth to Speaker by Kanex, it solves all of my small, but big problems.

The AirBlue Bluetooth to Speaker device is simple. Charge the device, attach the 3.5mm auxiliary cord to the device, then the other end to the audio system of your choice. Next step is to pair your device whether it is an iPhone, iPod, iPad, or an Android device, and as long as you have Bluetooth you are all set.

Nemo’s 2012 Holiday MyMac Gift Guide for Techies

Backup and archive. Daily. No exceptions.

If you are reading this and you are not fully backed up using Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper, stop immediately and order a new external multi-interface bus-powered backup drive or two. Keep one drive handy for daily updates, and the other offsite for safety and security. Email the G-Men on the MyMac Podcast if you need advice on how to use Time Machine and the other two backup applications.

I have been using and testing OWC’s Mercury On-The-Go Pro Triple Interface acrylic-encased FireWire 800/400 + USB 3 SSD and HDD solutions for several months, and I recommend them highly. They are versatile, sturdy, affordable, efficient, fast, and have the best guarantee in the business. Obtain an OWC unit with more storage than you think you need, because soon you will be glad you have the extra capacity. Get an SSD if max speed is your top priority, or choose an HDD if cost and max GB are paramount.
