Thunderbolt 2: Are Your Peripherals Obsolete?

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

The new Mac Pro was announced to include new Thunderbolt 2 connectivity. This really is less like going from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 and more like USB 1.0 to 1.1. Thunderbolt 1 had two 10Gbps streams going up and down, but they operated independently so 1 devices could utilize the full stream, with Thunderbolt 2, they have been combined, so you have 20Gbps in either direction. This is a pretty small change technically,...Read More

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

I’ve had a Creative Cloud (CC) subscription to CS6 since it came out in 2012. I really like the subscription model, I get my money’s worth from it every single month so I have no qualms about paying the monthly rate, especially if it means they are able to give more regular updates to the tools we use. However, I don’t plan to jump on the update when it comes out this evening. I’ll...Read More

I quickly vined the app in action so you can see how it works. You...Read More
