LaCie’s new drives

LaCie_logo_blue 2

LaCie have made a few exciting announcements this month with the addition of Thunderbolt 2 drives, great for those with a current Mac Pro, and larger capacity drives across the range.


LaCie’s 2BIG, 5BIG, and Little Big Disk all sport Thunderbolt 2 connectivity now – this may seem a little ahead of the times as there’s only one Mac available with Thunderbolt 2 presently, the Mac Pro. However these drives are backwards compatible, making them a good buy for any forward thinkers who may make use of the connectivity in the future.

iPad turns 4

On April 3rd, Apple celebrated the iPads 4th birthday.
Since its introduction in April 2010, Apple has gone on to sell nearly 200 million iPads in five generations. A lot of work for a span of 4 years.
And clearly, they sold for a reason. Not only are they more portable than a laptop, but they are ridiculously easy to use, and you can do just as much with an iPad as you can with a computer.
Congratulations to Apple for their success with the tablets, and we can’t wait to see what they do with them next.
