The new QS11 mount makes improvements to Spigen’s already popular line of car mounts by streamlining the design of the mount itself and adding a super strong magnetic attachment for the fastest possible mounting of your iPhone or other device in any vehicle.
Last month, Microsoft announced the release of Visual Studio for Mac: a full-featured development environment to help developers on the Mac create apps, games, and services for mobile, cloud, and web. It’s natively designed for macOS, so both the design – from the toolbar to the file dialogs – and the developer workflow should feel right at home to Mac users. It is also a best-in-class advanced C# code editor – with IntelliSense and a refactoring experience that includes a preview of the proposed code changes.
Eversign packs in everything you need for legally binding digital signatures, offering an all-in-one suite for creating and managing documents like contracts, NDAs, approvals, legal forms and anything else that needs a signature. Collaborate and invite other team members and associates, and get them to sign remotely or in-person with support for iPhone, iPad, Mac and all your other devices.
Need an in-person signature? Eversign lets you sign directly from an iPhone, iPad, or other mobile device screen, and allows adding signatures by drawing with a finger or mouse, typing, or uploading from any device. With nicely built web apps for both desktop and mobile, the service is entirely cross compatible for a seamless experience with no downloads for anyone involved in the signing process. Here’s how it works:
As more apps move to a subscription model, Setapp offers a “Netflix for Mac apps” experience that could be the way forward. One subscription with one monthly fee to get access to every app you need and also discover new ones, all curated so you only get the best options for the task at hand. Currently offering 69 apps (normally worth $2,227.29), you can use all of them through Setapp, free for the first month and $9.99/month after.
Even if you use just a few of the included apps often and the others when the need arises, the service makes a whole lot of sense versus subscribing to each individually or buying outright for what might be a one-time use. And you’ll never have to worry about updates as you get the latest and new apps as they’re added. There are also no ads or in-app purchases in Setapp. Here’s how it works:
Spigen is launching an updated version of its Ultra Hybrid case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, this time around introducing a number of new features to improve what was already one of its most popular cases for the new iPhone models.
Spigen has kept all of the features that made the original popular, including the crystal clear polycarbonate back that lets you show off the new black and jet black finishes particularly well, but it also has redesigned the case to be even more durable and with higher-end finishes for the Ultra Hybrid 2.
With the new 2016 MacBook Pro making the switch to all USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, users searching for a way to add back HDMI, USB-A, and other ports are looking to the HyperDrive ultimate USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 hub.
The product has now attracted over 15,000 owners of the new device and raised over $1.3 million in preorders ahead of the first units arriving to customers in February. This week is your last chance to take advantage of early bird pricing on the HyperDrive hub with just 7 days to go for pre-orders through the crowdfunding campaign.
Designed specifically for Apple’s AirPods, Spigen’s new AirPods Stand offers one of the first charging dock solutions to keep your case upright on a desktop, bedside table, or any other flat surface.
The edges of the AirPods charging case are rounded, and while that makes it particularly nice to carry around in your pants pocket, it means the case won’t stand up on its own. Spigen’s stand ($11.99) fixes that problem, by giving you a desktop stand that doubles as a charging dock with a cutout that lets you insert your own Lightning cable in the back.
HyperDrive is a compact, super-fast USB-C hub for the new MacBook Pro and the first to take full advantage of Thunderbolt 3 speeds. Add back HDMI, two USB 3.1 ports, a microSD/SD slot, as well as Thunderbolt 3 & USB-C ports with a sleek aluminum hub available in both silver and space gray to match the new 2016 MacBook Pro perfectly.
Unlike most USB-C dongles which still run on slow USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) speed, HyperDrive is 10X faster by using not one but two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connections. Not only are other Thunderbolt 3 docks much bigger and bulkier making them nowhere near as portable, HyperDrive is also the first and only hub to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3’s maximum bandwidth to deliver more ports in the smallest possible footprint. That means you can use all ports on HyperDrive simultaneously without issue….

Spigen’s new ultimate Kuel AP12T Car Mount features a super low-profile design with a telescopic arm and a rotating phone mount to let you adjust your device in just about any direction. You can adjust the length of the arm to extend out up to 9.2 inches from the base, or keep it more compact at 5 inches when retracted, and you can tilt and rotate the phone itself to get an ideal viewing angle for your specific car’s dash. You can see it in action in the video below.
The phone will also rotate to work into both landscape and portrait orientations, and it folds down into itself to have the lowest-profile possible and reduce any obstruction to your view of the road while driving. A self adjusting smartphone holder means the mount will automatically open and lock to the width of your phone for easy one-handed docking. It will attach to both a windshield or dash (except for leather dashboards).
It just launched, but you can get 40% off today only for Cyber Monday making it just $15 with code AP12T40P.

Have you come across an NTFS formatted drive you’re having trouble using on your Mac? It’s not just an issue for those switching from Windows machines to Mac, but also for Bootcamp users and others who want to connect the odd drive from their Windows-using friends or colleagues.
If you want to write to/edit an NTFS formatted drive on macOS, a format commonly used for drives that interface with Windows computers, there’s a couple ways of doing it. You’ll be able to read what’s on the drive, but to have full compatibility to access and edit what’s on it requires a workaround. If you want to write to an NTFS drive natively like any other drive on your Mac, there is fortunately a way to easily add that functionality using Paragon NTFS for Mac.
Here’s how it works:

To help introduce the new 38-inch LG UltraWide USB-C monitor, we’re teaming up with LG this month on its Dream Canvas contest that will see it give away 15 of the new monitors – alongside a $10,000 workstation to one grand prize winner.
Since the new monitor and its huge 38-inch curved display is geared towards creators like the rest of LG’s UltraWide lineup, LG is calling on artists to submit wallpaper creations that will fit perfectly on the new 3840 x 1600 LG UltraWide display.
Here’s how it works:
