Get the old 3D, a Red, a Black, or even a transparent dock in Yosemite.

Gone are the days of the 3D Dock, the new Yosemite Dock defaults to looking like a flatter version, much like the iOS Dock. But who wants an iOS Dock on a Mac?

New Microsoft Office for Mac images leaked

OS X Yosemite’s Mail app is a Mac-crashing memory hog, but that might be good news for Microsoft — it appears from new leaked images that Redmond is readying a special version of Outlook built especially for the new Apple OS X. And Office probably won’t be far behind.

OSX Yosemite

The images leaked on Chinese site cnBeta and show a new version of Outlook that boasts Yosemite’s simple, flat design language.

The user interface looks something like a mashup between the default OS X Mail app and Outlook for Windows. According to cnBeta, the new Outlook for Mac will bring better support for cloud documents, integration with Yosemite’s Notification Center, and assets to support the new 5K Retina iMacs.

How To Customize Your iMac In Half-Second

The iDentity is a simple, minimalistic yet effective way to personalize your iMac. Made of solid aerospace grade aluminum (just as the you iMac), the iDentity has no moving parts, adhesives or screws – it uses a magnetic field to “stick” to you iMac

Apple iMac

The iDentity comes in a variety of vibrant anodized colors, works on all iMacs since mid-2009 (including both “Thick” and “Thin” models), and is available for both 21.5-in and 27-in iMac versions. Another cool thing about the iDentity is that you can customize it with your own logo or design.

iStick™: USB Flash Drive with Lightning for Apple phones and tablets

photo-main

iStick™: The World’s first USB flash drive with integrated Apple Lightning connector. Made for iPhone & iPad.

iStick allows you to easily, quickly and safely move data between computers, iPhones, iPads and iPod touches without the need for Internet, wireless networks or the Cloud where hackers and others (e.g. 3rd party server operators) may gain access.

We all have used a USB flash drive at least once in our lives. They are great for transferring large files between computers, require minimal setup and the transfer speed is much faster than the fastest Cloud storage. It doesn’t require the Internet to work and your data is never sent through 3rd party servers. The USB flash drive is great but it doesn’t work with your favorite Apple iDevices. Until now.
