If like me, you've got a new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, you may get yourself in a situation where the ports just aren't enough.
With the MacBook Pro, the ports you have access to are:
4 x USB C / Thunderbolt
1 x 3.5mm Headphone Jack
This is all perfect, until you need to plug in an external display, or have an old USB A drive you want to use. For sure, there are adapters everywhere, and you can literally find any combination of dongles.
The problem arises when you have adapters that break over time, or when using multiple adapters, they tend to get lost.
Well, a while ago I backed something on Kickstarter called HyperDrive. It's an adapter that is more of an extension, as it just slots on to the side of the Mac, and turns 2 USB C ports into a lot more.
I was going to make a video for this when I first received it, but that just never happened. But ever since Apple released Clips for iOS, I've been making small videos.
So I've created one for this. I won't share here what the actual details of the HyperDrive is here, because I don't want to spoil the video!
You can't get a HyperDrive from Kickstarter anymore, but they are now running an IndieGoGO campaign where you can find them.
There's a bit of talk over the new MacBook Pro's keyboard, and the noise it makes. So I decided to make this little video, to show the noise of the new keyboard, against my old MacBook Pro, and also an Apple Wireless Keyboard.
National Geographic have just released a documentary called "Before the Flood", in which Leonardo DiCaprio explores the world in regards to the effect of climate change, and what we can do to prevent even more harm to our planet.
Before the Flood, directed by Fisher Stevens, captures a three-year personal journey alongside Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio as he interviews individuals from every facet of society in both developing and developed nations who provide unique, impassioned and pragmatic views on what must be done today and in the future to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.
It's an incredible film, and while I was aware of most of climate change, it still opened my eyes up to a lot more harm we are doing. There's also some people that are actively trying to turn it around, but they alone won't be able to fix the planet, everyone needs to make themselves aware. Then the process of fixing things, won't be as difficult.
