  • FastMac's Slimline external Blu-ray drives now available

  • Fastmac quietly releases a Mac-specific external Blu-ray drive

    I just got back from MacWorld and stopped by the Fastmac booth on the way out to see what was shakin and came across this unannounced external Blu-ray drive. Sure, it looks super ugly and not really geared towards Mac owners, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a $99 external Blu-ray drive. I’m told they have an external Blu-ray drive that will burn BD-R discs but it won’t… Read More

  • Combination iPhone battery pack and flash from FastMac


    Here’s my problem with this (admittedly perfectly good) product: if you need more battery time, you don’t need ten more hours of it. Usually you need maybe two more hours of it so you can get to a plug, or finish the flight, or what have you. Point being, why would you want to make your iPhone wear a big-ass battery backpack all the time? A little battery the size of a pack of… Read More

  • Fastmac announces first universal Mac battery charger, TruePower U-Charge

    Back at Macworld in January, my MacBook died in the middle of the keynote and it sucked really bad since I was in charge of pictures. If I were in possession of an extra battery we would have been fine, but I didn’t so I had to scramble around Moscone for an open outlet. Luckily for me, Fastmac hooked me up with an extra battery after the show so things like that wouldn’t happen again. Read More

  • Rumor: Blu-ray drives coming to Macs

    Let’s put this to rest once and for all. Apple will not have Blu-ray drives anytime in the future. Why? Because physical media is dead or will be very soon. Think about it for a minute. Steve Jobs wants you to purchase HD content through iTunes, which means more money in the pocket of the company. I know he’s on the Blu-ray board, but there’s more profit in downloadable content.

  • Thanks, FastMac

    I want to thank FastMac for hooking me up with an extra MacBook battery to use today since my other one crapped out during the keynote. This one is actually calibrated and I know my MB won’t go into sleep mode at the 30 minute mark. Thanks, FastMac. You saved my ass. Announced today from FastMac is the iV iPhone external battery case. What does it do? It’s a mashup of case… Read More
