CES 2017 Stories January 4, 2017


The LG UltraFine Display’s 5K screen is something to behold, but the Video Electronics Standards Association, better known as VESA, announced its early certification program for interfaces using the DisplayPort standard that can drive 8K video resolution. Not to be outdone, the HDMI Forum also today announced HDMI spec 2.1, which can drive 8K resolutions as well.

While the promise of 8K and higher sounds interesting, it’s a relatively long way off in the mainstream consumer space. However, there are some more practical applications that DisplayPort’s High Bit Rate 3 (HBR3) will allow for, which might be of special interest to MacBook users. expand full story


Potential Apple partner Energous has once again further delayed the release of their wireless charging technology. In a phone call with the CEO today, Energous stated that plans changed after “key strategic partnership” was made. That doesn’t mean wireless charging is down for the count at this year’s CES though.

Kanex launches three new Thunderbolt 3 products at CES 2017

Apple peripheral maker Kanex has launched three new Thunderbolt 3 products that will surely be of interest to new MacBook Pro owners. The products, just announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, include a Thunderbolt 3-enabled eSATA+USB Adapter, a Thunderbolt 3 cable, and a Thunderbolt 3 Travel Dock.


If you’ve ever wished your MacBook/Air/Pro had a touchscreen, you’ll soon be in luck – at least if you have the 13-inch MacBook Air. AirBar is a plug-and-play infrared device which allows you to use touch on your MacBook Air simply by magnetically attaching the device to the bottom bezel of your screen and plugging it into a USB port.

Creator Neonode says that other MacBook models will be supported later in the year …

Apple worked with LG on the company’s new UltraFine 5K display, but that’s not stopping other companies from showing off their own standalone USB-C displays. As CES 2017 kicks off this week in Las Vegas, we’re sure to see quite a few companies take the wraps off of new displays, but Dell is getting a head start with its new 27-inch Ultrathin display…

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….
