Review: OWC Thunderbolt 4 Hub – Perfection Amid Quirks and Duty

As someone who grew up with an intrinsic love for the aesthetic of Apple hardware as well as a genuine appreciation for the joy of tinkering with visually inelegant technology – the second of which ended up becoming my full-time profession and thereby my single means of livelihood – I am caught in a perpetual quandary between my longing for the ultimate degree of minimalism and an insistence on uncompromising functionality.

Review: Plugable 4K Displayport – UD-6950PDZ

The Plugable USBC Triple 4k HDMI and Displayport Display Horizontal Docking Station is a very impressive accessory catered to those who have laptops and are looking to expand their ports and displays. Regardless of its ridiculously long name this device has its uses but for the high price point is it necessary?

The companies who made off-band products that never truly matched the quality of the real thing. That being said, I was extremely surprised by the quality of...

Review: Plugable USB Docking Station – More Than Just a Hub

I recall my introductory computing class in middle school. One of our vocabulary words was peripheral. To this day, I have trouble pronouncing it correctly, and don’t ask me to spell it without the aid of a spellchecker. It is defined as a term meaning, Peripheral: connected to a computer but not an essential part of it. Back then, most of the computers were a single unit. But we knew that a Peripheral could be a light pen or a mouse. The teacher told us a mouse was easier...
