Transcend JetDrive 240GB SSD Upgrade Kits for select MacBook Air & Retina Pro models: $169 shipped

Transcend-JetDrive-Mac-SSD

Amazon has dropped the prices of several 240GB Transcend JetDrive Solid-State Drive upgrade kits for select MacBook Air and Retina Pro models down to their best prices ever:

Great for upgrading to a larger capacity or replacing an older drive that may have quit on you. Each kit includes a drive enclosure that can be used to turn your old SSD into a USB 3.0 external hard drive.

As noted in our review, the JetDrive is an easy way to upgrade the storage capacity of many MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models. Other models up to 960GB are also on sale but aren’t at their lowest prices.

Don’t feel comfortable opening up your Mac? Use one of these three hacks to add semi-permananet storage through its SD card slot.

Small States: Paper by FiftyThree pursues the new digital American Dream, multiple giveaways

FiftyThree_Pencil_Pencil_with_Paper

Update (1/24 9:00am): @ericmata75 is our winner, thank you to everyone for entering our giveaway!

The story goes, as told by co-founder Andrew Allen, that Paper by FiftyThree started out of a love for analog products. That four Microsoft colleagues turned friends with the resources of a Fortune 500 company found a greater passion in a pencil, scissors…and paper. Often Andew, Georg Petschnigg, Jonathan Harris and Julian Walker would sit down and discuss their ideas, talking about possibilities that bounced around in their heads. These brainstorming sessions would always be recorded on a scrap, or coffee filter, napkin or Moleskin, notably they weren’t writing in Word or the like – they were writing everything out.

The feeling of analog products, the feel of cutting paper or dragging a pencil across paper. How do they bring that feeling to a digital world? It was at that point, they bunkered down in a 5th floor New York apartment and set out to re-imagine digital design. They set out to make Paper.

iMC_Thumb_Shopify_2ecb3146-1055-41fe-b9d8-798ddad2d1b0

Update (1/23 11:46am): the discount code available in this post has now expired.

If you are an iMac user you like nice things. Reaching around to the back of your iMac every time you want to plug in a USB object is not nice. Sure there are options out there. You could drop $15 on a wrap around cord or buy a nice aluminum USB 3 hub (this nice Satechi 7 port is $40 or Powered Anker is $44 or many others have existed for awhile).

If you want something that looks like it came from Apple however, check out the iMacompanion. It is a single USB 3 port that carries the power and speed of the iMac’s USB 3 (also USB 2 compatible for older models) to the base of your iMac. It has a flat USB cord that will snake under your iMac and to the back USB port. All the instructions you need are in the following graphic and a 15% off offer follows:

iMacompanion_4

The big thing here is the quality: the housing is 100% aluminum and it is designed to fit perfectly onto your iMac. Wiplabs is giving 9to5Toys readers a 15% discount when bought through Amazon using code 9to5Toys at checkout which knocks it down to $34 with $4.50 shipping (offer is good for a week)
