The easiest way to unmount a drive in OS X is to either just drag a volume into the Trash, use the eject keys, disconnect the drive, or use one of the force eject methods. Along the same lines, if you want to remount a drive you can usually just physically unplug the drive and plug it back again. But what if you want to be able to mount, unmount, and [Read More...]

My 27-inch iMac hangs on my wall, freeing up desk-space and terrifying me that it will fall off as I sleep and crush me in my bed. To get it up there I had to hit up Amazon and order the VESA wall mount, plus an adapter to replace the iMac’s huge foot with a VESA-compatible set of holes.
The result is very sturdy, and very neat. But there’s one problem: where the hell [Read More...]
On my Mac and Windows PCs, where I have access to a speedy connection, I have mounted my Box and Dropbox account to act as a local virtual storage.Â This allows me to seamlessly transfer files between them and my local storage drives with a simple copy & paste, and it makes my cloud storage services much more useful.
On Android, I need to ‘share’ files to the official Dropbox or Box app [Read More...]
Despite the fact that you’ll probably end up killing someone because of it, you’re going to keep using your phone in the car. With this in mind, I bring tidings of the AIRFRAME from Kenu, a tiny smartphone mount which clips to the louvres of your car’s ventilation holes and hugs the phone tightly. The idea is that your iPhone is now secure and convenient, making it less likely that you’ll mow down a [Read More...]
If you want your iPad mini to feel extra special, or if you’re worried about friends coming over and scratching it, or stealing it, this heavy-duty acrylic security base looks just like the ones Apple uses to keep hardware safe at the Apple Store.
The iPad Mini Security BaseÂ can turn your iPad mini into a kiosk display, or protect it from thieves with its tamper-proof screws, while still giving you full [Read More...]
If you have been trawling the internet for an iPhone 5 bike mount which looks like it was beamed forward in time from the 1980s, then stop! Your search is over. Better still, the case even has a numeral-heavy 1980s-style name: The M550.
The case sure is boxy and would be right at home in Back To The Future (if BTTF had featured bikes instead of skateboards and DeLoreans), but it looks to be a lot [Read More...]
Imagine, if you will, a world where cellphone cameras and SLRs get along. A world where one was never teased by the other. Imagine a world where Canon and Nikon lenses can be used as easily on an iPhone as they can on their own bodies.
Now open your eyes and look around. How do you feel? Does anything look any different. It should, because the whole world just changed. Behold! The iPhone SLR Mount.

Sometimes, you really need to make an important Skype call when you’re on the go. Or you want to use your bike as a giant (and slightly unwieldy) â€œtripodâ€ for your camera. At these times, what you need is Photojojo’s Bikepod
The aluminum and cork clamp looks good enough to leave on your bike all the time, even a vintage, lugged-steel framed racing bike. But of course that would be a bad idea, and [Read More...]
Hip startupÂ Studio Neat announced the original Glif on Kickstarter back in 2010, and the innovative iPhone tripod/mount hybrid became a huge success. Today Studio Neat announced that the iPhone 5 version of the Glif will start arriving to customers next week.

Just Mobile is one of my favorite third-party accessory makers for Apple products. They make beautifully minimal stands, chargers, styluses, and other random accessories for iPhone, iPad and Mac. What makes Just Mobile’s stuff great is that most of their products look like they were designed by Apple itself, and that’s no exaggerationâ€”just take a look at their catalog. It’s all [Read More...]
