Hands On: AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable

08/26, 8:41am

We used to have all these old iPod 30-pin style cables and yet could never find one when we needed it. Now we have a building full of Apple Lightning cables and it's the same thing except slightly worse: our cables are wearing out. At £25 a pop here in the UK or $29, we counted the cable as a bonus when we had to buy an iPhone 6. It's expensive to buy a Lightning cable from Apple that way but it's expensive buying them from Apple in any way so we finally caved and tried an AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable 6ft (1.8m) in black.

MacNN Staffers: What made the Mac the choice for you?

08/25, 5:51pm

Apple hardware has, generally, been solid since inception. Sure, there was the Apple III, and the Performa, but generally, the quality of the OS and hardware beats the alternative.

Most of these innovations have since made it to other devices, but for a while, the Mac was the center of innovation. Three of our more "seasoned" staffers were there for the inception of the Mac, and either by destiny or accident, made it their platform of choice. Here are their stories of the non-Apple gear that pushed the assimilation for them.
