Skinny iMac Now Comes With Built-In VESA Mount

My 27-inch iMac hangs on my wall, freeing up desk-space and terrifying me that it will fall off as I sleep and crush me in my bed. To get it up there I had to hit up Amazon and order the VESA wall mount, plus an adapter to replace the iMac’s huge foot with a VESA-compatible set of holes.

Apple’s own VESA mount adapter kit actually notes incompatibility with the 2012 iMac. The $40 adapter does work with 2009-2011 iMac models and Apple’s Cinema/Thunderbolt displays.

iPad R*Case With Rear Rails Looks Amazingly Versatile

This is the R* Case, and it might just be my new favorite iPad skin, based only on this video. And not just because the case itself, with two old 80s-skateboard-style rails on the back, looks very useful. It’s also because the video itself is an engaging mix of hard work and high-cheese.
