During the lead up to WWDC there was some optimism Apple would finally release a new external Display, but that hope quickly disappeared. Apple quelled all rumors last night when it announced plans to discontinue the Thunderbolt Display and recommended prospective buyers check out 3rd party options. There’s a chance Apple could release an all-new monitor at some point down the road, but given Apple’s recent shift away from professional products, it wouldn’t be surprising if we never see another display come out of Cupertino.

To that end, we’ve rounded up the best monitors available right now across all budgets for Mac users…

When I reviewed SanDisk’s new Lightning to USB flash drive for iPhone back in April, I noted it was one of the best yet. Today the company is launching a new product that essentially offers the same functionality— extra storage for files that you can access from a companion iOS app— but in the form factor of a sleek iPhone 6/6s case.

LeBron James has been endorsing Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless Headphones for years and he just brought Cleveland its first major sports championship in more than 50 years. Coincidence? Most likely! But that doesn’t change the fact that they are still great looking and sounding headphones. Right now you can get them from Amazon in Red, Flash Blue (Active Collection), Shock Yellow (Active Collection) and Siren Red (Active Collection) on sale for $119.99 with free shipping. Alternatively, Best Buy also offers the same discounted price on a few additional colors like Black and White. As a price comparison, they carry a list price of $200 and usually sell for around $150.

I’m partial to the Shock Yellow model since it matches perfectly with most of the latest athletic fashion trends. These headphones feature wireless Bluetooth connectivity (up to 30-ft), 6-hour rechargeable battery, RemoteTalk, and are IPX4 sweat resistant. Rated 3.7 out of 5 stars from more than 4,000 Amazon reviewers.

On my recent trip to San Francisco, I realized that I had forgotten to bring my iPhone wall charger. It wasn’t the end of the world because I had a selection of other phones with me, but I had some key info — like boarding passes etc. — on my iPhone, and I needed to charge it.

Grabbing a new charger would only take $20 and a trip to the local convenience store, but I realized that I had a portable charger in my backpack — one with a Lightning port and plenty of juice to power up my phone. I ended up going a full four days using nothing but the Olala 13000mAh portable battery charger for my energy needs…
