Review: BladeX 15.6-inch 4K portable monitor is a great MacBook Pro companion

The BladeX Pro 4K portable monitor is the successor to the Gemini I reviewed earlier in the year, though under a different branding this time: Odake.

It has quite a lot in common with the previous model. It’s again battery-powered, for truly mobile use. The display is still 15.6 inches, and you again get a choice of a 1080p touchscreen version and a 4K model without touchscreen capability. You still get both USB-C and HDMI input, though Mini DisplayPort has been dropped.

But this version has a sleeker design. Instead of the entire device being a half-inch thick, the display is now less than a fifth of an inch thick. The base is still a half-inch thick when folded, so you don’t really get any portability benefit, but there’s no denying the visual appeal of the far slimmer design…

Review: The SanDisk iXpand wireless iPhone charger also backs up your photos

A wireless phone charger isn’t the most obvious product from a company best-known for SD cards. But the SanDisk iXpand isn’t just a dumb charger: it also backs up your iPhone’s photos, videos, and contacts.

You might still question the product. After all, iCloud automatically backs up all three things anyway, and you can still do an iTunes backup if you don’t want to fork out for a paid iCloud storage tier. My own view, though, is you can never have too many backups — especially fully-automatic ones — and I’ll return to this point in the conclusions…
