Remain calm. Your laptop is not about to bellow wildly and charge while you bolt frantically down a narrow, cobblestoned street with a red scarf around your neck.

The adapter plugs into your iPhone 5′s Lightning port and allows you to link your own LEGO bricks together [Read More...]
As a reader of Cult of Mac, Iâ€™d say itâ€™s a safe bet that you have a whole bunch of 30-pin docks around your home. And that those docks have been rendered useless by Appleâ€™s evil insistence on equipping all of its new devices with smaller, tougher, easier to use Lightning plugs.
Now, we bring good news. With just â‚¬13, you can resurrect your pointless plastic paperweight.

Over the weekend, a fascinating little post over on the Panic weblog revealed that the Lightning AV adapter meant to send video out from a connected iPhone or iPad over HDMI had an interesting little secret to it: it’s not a converter so much as it is a tiny ARM-based computer with a tiny SoC and 2GB of RAM!

A USB 2.0 Ethernet adapter is a pitiful thing, an ugly workaround only really useful when you find yourself in a Wi-Fi-free hotel room with only your MacBook Air for company.
A USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter, on the other hand, is every bit as good as having a real 10/1000 network connector hole in the side of your machine.

The iPad 3 took forever to charge when it first came out, thanks to the gigantic battery that powers the new Retina display. Now that Apple has updated to the iPad 4, they’ve also come out with a new 12W power adapterÂ that gives us the power we need.
After running some tests on the new 12W power adapter next to the old 10W power adapter, Insanely Great Mac found that the new 12W power adapter will charge an iPad 3 [Read More...]
If you don’t have an Apple TV but want to look at all your pretty iPhone 5 pictures on your HDTV, then Apple just came out with some new Lightning adapters to help solve all your problems. For $ 49 you can get a Lightning to HDMI adapter, or Lightning to VGA adapter from the online Apple Store.
The new adapters ship in 2-3 weeks and would probably be pretty useful [Read More...]
That’s a lot of cardboard.
The new Lighting To Thirty Pin Adapter is a tiny thing, just a little dongle that routes signals from your old iPhone dock or connector to the appropriate pins in the new Lightning adapter. It’s smaller than the size of a matchbook.
