iPad case with keyboard ends those notebook vs tablet arguments




If you've been trying to decide between an iPad and a cute litte notebook, the Crux360 case may be just the thing to make those discussions moot.

The Crux isn't exactly the only iPad case with a built-in keyboard we've seen, but it is the first one, (apart from that home made job), that protects the iPad inside a hard shell just like an actual notebook.

In addition to working in notebook mode with its Bluetooth connected keyboard, the Crux360 has a swivel hinge that lets you use the case as a stand for what they call "movie mode", and which also lets you fold the iPad flat against the case so you can use it as the touch screen tablet it began life as.

The Crux360 is available for pre-order with deliveries expected next month, the price is $150.

Crux Case.

LaCie's USB 3.0 Drivers for Mac Have Been Hacked




LaCie's USB 3.0 drivers for Mac OS X have been hacked to remove their linkage to LaCie's hard drives, according to HardMac.

Some Hackers decided to publish on the web a version without this linkage, thing that we had decided not to do in spite of the trivial protection. It is necessary to keep with the spirit that the development of a driver is not a free thing, far from it and it represents, especially in this case, a commercial risk.

Apple has yet to support USB 3.0 or release official drivers for its use.
