ADATA launches line of certified accessories for the iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac — ADATA Technology has launched an Apple Series of connectibles in North America. The accessories are designed specifically for iOS and OS X devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac. The initial five products are: the Lightning card reader, i-Memory flash drive UE710, i-Memory storage expansion card, USB type-C OTG flash drive, and Lightning cables.

Add to that the voices of some people who haven’t taken a liking to the Apple Watch, and one might fall into the trap of thinking that it’s a failure. But it isn’t, and Apple’s wise choice to not reveal sales numbers and roll it out slowly is turning out to be incredibly clever. [Or at least, that’s what John Martellaro thinks.]
