Samsung Wireless Charger Duo – they could beat Apple to the wireless charging pad even though Apple announced theirs last year.


A utility that has really been helping me out with Burst and could find other uses?  Restart on Crash.

It monitors active exes and when it stops, for whatever reason, it restarts it!  Super easy, super light and it just works. Been using it for 3 or 4 weeks now, no issues. – network mapping software.
