LG UltraFines, Moshi dongles, more obsolete Macs, Cascable wifi photo tool


LG UltraFine 5K Display now for sale through Apple, first orders ship in January — A month after it debuted onstage at Apple’s MacBook Pro event, LG’s UltraFine 5K Display went up for sale on Monday exclusively through Apple’s online storefront for US$974. But orders placed through Apple’s website will ship within 6 to 8 weeks, meaning the first units are unlikely to arrive in 2016.
In New Zealand, the LGs have appeared in the online shop too, the 4K for NZ$823.95 and the 5K for NZ$1528.95, but they’re still listed as ‘currently unavailable’.

Moshi’s USB-C accessories come in handy for MacBook and MacBook Pro users — Moshi makes a full suite of USB-C accessories that come in handy for owners of new MacBook Pros and the 12-inch iMac. Yep, I know you don’t want to buy dongles and adapters, but, with its latest laptops, Apple has given us little choice.
There are also two Docks already, by Belkin (which should be available in New Zealand) and from OWC, but that’s only available by online ordering it from the States, and you may need to sort out your power supply.

Apple to add some 2009 & 2011 Macs to vintage and obsolete list on December 31 — Starting December 31 of this year, several 2009 and 2011 Mac models will reportedly join Apple’s list of ‘vintage’ and ‘obsolete’ products, making them ineligible for most or typically any official repairs.

Cascable Transfer for the Mac lets you import photos from your WiFi-enabled camera — Cascable AB has introduced Cascable Transfer for macOS. It’s a tool for wirelessly importing photos from your WiFi-enabled Canon, Nikon, Olympus or Sony camera directly into your Photos library, Lightroom catalog, or anywhere else on your Mac. Cascable Transfer is available to get started with for free from the Cascable website, and will cost US$14.99 once it comes out of beta later this year.
