Acme Made introduces Ergo Book for iPad Air and iPad mini
Accessory design company Acme Made has introduced the Ergo Book case for iPad Air and iPad mini. Measuring 17mm (0.67 inches) in thickness, the Ergo Book includes a variety of utility functions, such as a hidden swivel mechanism that allows for 360 degree rotation, and a stretchable strap for ergonomic use. The case's frame slides out for taking photos, protecting the camera when not in use, and removes the need for camera hole in the back.
Ergo Book's cover is composed of a polyurethane laminate, and its molded and fitted frame keep one's iPad secure. Lastly, its magnetic function facilitates sleeping and waking of the tablet, conserving battery. The Ergo Book is available for pre-order through Acme Made's Kickstarter, with pledges that include a case starting at $35.
Energy-saving software Power Manager 4.2 released
DssW announced today the release of Power Manager 4.2 of OS X. Introducing a new user interface and removing the need for restarting to install, update or remove the scheduler, Power Manager allows users to create elaborate energy-saving schedules and automate complex tasks. Power Manager now offers two views - the events store and the engine.
The events store shows all the events available to the scheduler, including those that are disabled. Building upon the previous interface, events are created, named and managed. The new engine view shows events as they exist within the scheduler; an event with two times triggers will appear within the engine view (once for each trigger time).
Scheduled events can be adjusted, triggered and cancelled within this view. AppleScript support has been merged into the application, and command line tools have also been moved within the application bundle. Priced at $75, Power Manager is supported by OS X 10.7 and later.
