A pair of USB 2.0 hubs arrived at TUAW Central today for testing and review. If you're thinking that I may have mistyped USB 3.0, unfortunately I didn't -- for some reason, Mac accessory manufacturers seem to forget that new Macs are equipped with the faster USB 3.0 ports. For a USB 2.0 hub, ...

A while back we did a review and giveaway of some iPad protection products from our buddies at NewerTech. Just before I headed off to the high seas for three weeks, I received some additional swag from NewerTech that I thought would be perfect for our TUAW Independence Day holiday giveaways. Whil...

It's amazing, really, that this meme has lasted this long. When we first noticed Brando's SATA HDD Dock, we figured it was destined to become a cute, one-off gift that only the hardest of hardcore storage freaks would bother with. Over a year later, we're having trouble counting the iterations ava...

Sure, we've seen similar adapters in the past, but NewerTech's latest is quite a few rungs higher on the attractive scale than its most formidable rivals. The inelegantly named USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter allows users to easily connect any 2.5-, 3.5- or 5.25-inch HDD / optical drive to a compu...

NewerTech is introducing its miniStack NAS enclosure, which can be pre-configured with as much as 750GB of storage, and should fit quite well above or below your mini.

NewerTech's dual-bay MacBook (and MacBook Pro, too) battery charger / conditioner is most certainly tailored for the authentic road warrior, as it allows users to "conveniently charge two batteries one after the other, or charge one battery while conditioning a second one." The device reportedly e...

Keeping your Mac portable's battery properly conditioned is something that most folks don't do (I know I don't, and I'm aware of the fact that I should). NewerTech, masters of all power-related Mac things, have just announced a Battery Charger/Conditioner for MacBooks and MacBook Pros. This $149 pr...

Not that there's some dearth of external RAID devices on the market or anything, but few and far between are those that have FireWire 800 and 400 ports, as well as USB 2.0. NewerTech's Guardian MAXimus -- which appears to be a rebadged Mercury Elite-AL Pro -- comes in with up to 1TB, two FireWire ...

Grant Dahlke from Newer Technology took a few moments out of his busy day on the Show floor to talk to us about some of his cool products. I especially liked the USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter,which I am going to have to order soon. Grant also showed off some replacement iPod batteries that'll kee...
