Recently, I discussed new technology I want to purchase.
Technology, especially in the areas of mobility and access- have changed quite a bit since I purchased my 13" Macbook and Acer Netbook in 2008 and 2010 respectively.
The Mac Mini is a desktop, and powerful enough to handle most of my business and programming needs, however will allow me to "unplug" and secure easily.
The new 12" Macbook will be for "on the go" use. Because fewer ports ship with the new Macbook, I plan to use more external devices and adaptors to allow for easy data transfer. Including:
When I first got my Android Tablet, I noticed something called Portable WiFi Hotspots [sometimes called Software or Mobile Hotspots] amongst the "Settings" options. Initially, unsure how to use this feature I now understand I can connect tools like the HooToo Wireless Travel Router listed above, to provide support for USB hubs and charging.
The new 12" Macbook can also use this tool to allow connection to a USB hub or as a charger. See this article on How to turn your Mac into a Wi-Fi Hotspot.
Of course, you can also purchase the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter to power up or stay fully charged while also connecting to USB devices. I think I will need both.
I have done a lot of research as related to business tools I would like to own and think I have found many of the tools I will need to get the things done I need to get done-- plus more.
I also maintain a list of new technology and computing tools I am interested in owning at this Amazon Store.
