Cool Post your last Mac related purchase (With links to where you bought it and photos!)

What was your last Mac related purchase? Do share!

I just ordered a Helmet Cameras @ GoPro.com. Really cool looking device that I'm going to be doing a review on shortly as well.



My brother-in-law took me to Rogers Centre in Toronto a couple months ago to watch the Monster Energy Supercross and they were advertised there. First time I heard about them and I saw some of the riders wearing them on their helmets.

Later, I found their website with race highlights from Toronto all filmed with the little camera!!! Amazing!

Had to get one. Will be fun doing a review, going to get my mountain bike out and doing some jumps on a downhill bike park close by with my Brother-in-law.

Can't wait to get my hands on it.

What's your latest Mac related purchase? No purchase is to mundane. What it a cable? A printer? A new Mac? Let's share.

Post pictures, links, where you got it etc...

I bought a nifty little D-Link mobile router. It takes my Wind mobile data stick and then sends that out via wifi. I'm pretty impressed with it, and wind mobile at the moment. After the summer is over and i'm back at home I'll keep this router as a portable router for hotels i stay at that only have wired internet!

So far a pretty cool gadget for $69. Its a shame the Airport/ Airport Express don't support 3g data sticks via usb

My brother-in-law and I both got the Go Pro helmet cam for Christmas (not sure how it's Mac related!??), and took them out west cat boarding with us in January. The advertised 2.5 hour battery life is a joke! And the video is reasonable, but not great.

The product has full Mac support. You can use it with your Mac. = Mac related.

Also, all the footage in the video above was shot with the camera. I know it's very slick editing, doesn't change the fact all the footage was shot with a camera that's only 2".

I'll test out the battery claims when I get a hold of the unit and will shoot footage and post for everyone to judge.

Lots more real video examples on their site.

What kind of weed are you having it shipped in? Is that legal?

Bought a cable modem for my new teksavvy cable account. That's not very mac related, so before that a webcam for my htpc mac hooked up to my mounted flatscreen. I use row mote on my iPad to control it and plex for most content.

I picked up an eBoy GelaSkin for my new MacBook Pro. It's the third GelaSkin I've purchased, and I think they're the best way to protect portable Apple products!
