Amazon tricks me into buying stuff with the Echo Dot, OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock review by Trevor Drover, tech stocking stuffers under $50, new SCO Member Tutorials iOS app for ScreenCasts Online, $22 AllSmartLife USB-C adapter to make your DisplayPort monitor work with a new MacBook Pro.
Last week I told you about how the new MacBook Pro won’t run a DisplayPort monitor. I quoted the Apple support article that explains that their USB-C to Thunderbolt adapter simply will not work with any DisplayPort display, including their own legacy monitors.
I explained how my darling husband Steve swapped monitors with me so that I could use his Thunderbolt Apple Cinema Display with my new MacBook Pro. Steve also gave me his Belkin Thunderbolt dock so I could keep just one cable plugged into my laptop. It’s still working great, but the plot thickens.
This week, I got an email from Dave Price, long time NosillaCastaway, and Apple Certified Support Professional of TekBasics in Dunstable, MA (www.tekbasics.com).
