We're a year into the life of the Apple Watch, and still it's rare to find a case or a stand that includes a charging cable. You almost always have to use the one Apple provided, and thread it through some plastic or metal. It's still the case most of the time, and it is the case with Twelve South's TimePorter Travel Stand and Case for Apple Watch.
We could probably join Lightning Cable Breakers Anonymous at this point, what with the amount of cables we've accidentally destroyed. Either we've bent them at awkward angles while charging them, or crushed them in our bags under laptops and textbooks. That's probably why Alto designed their heavy duty, yet very stylish Braided Lightning Cable.
The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) proposal to open up cable services to any compatible set-top box instead of just those offered by cable companies has received backing from the Obama administration. The White House has released a statement supporting the FCC's "Unlock the Box" proposal, calling upon the FCC to press ahead with its plan, in order to increase competition and encourage innovation in the marketplace.
I'm in Hazelwood Castle, Leeds, in the UK and of course I got here by booking online, of course I kept those details in TripIt and of course I have my Apple Watch charging on the Nomad Pod Pro travelling stand. This is just how it goes now: each part of this is as inevitable as packing a bag or deciding between bringing my iPad Air or iPad Pro. Except, I always bring both of those and my opinions haven't only changed about the Nomad Pod Pro, they've changed back again.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has taken a step towards freeing customers of cable and satellite providers from having to lease equipment from the company. The commission has voted in favor of the "Unlock the Box" proposal by Chairman Tom Wheeler, which intends to create a framework that would allow customers to use effectively any compatible set-top box to view content from cable services, including third-party streaming devices from TiVo or even the Apple TV.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is setting its sights on the set-top boxes used by satellite TV and cable providers that could be beneficial for third-party manufacturers, according to a report. The FCC is introducing proposals that would allow customers of pay TV services to avoid renting or purchasing a specific set-top box as part of their subscription, saving money by using another device such as the Apple TV instead.
Every Apple Watch stand we've reviewed, and every one we've even heard of, has one thing in common: not the fact that you have to provide your own Apple Watch charging cable, that's only true with the gigantic majority of them. What's true for them all is that they're rubbish if you need to travel with your Watch. Except for one: the Nomad Pod Pro is expressly for travelers, and it is very good.
If you don't have an Apple Watch, you may feel that Christmas has already come for people who do -- and you've got a point there. If you do have an Apple Watch, though, you tend to adore it, and there can't be anything better for inserting yourself into a loved one's life and/or attention span than by giving them something to make the Watch even better. It can be done. It can. It's just not easy.
Charging cables, right? If you're like us, you lose them, you break them, you let people borrow them to never see them return. It's a hassle -- and you know you need several on hand at any given time. If you're looking for a new one to snag, we've got a sleek little number that features a nifty LED charge indicator built right into it: The Scosche flatOUT LED Lightning cable.
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
