iPad Air 2 is semi-matte!/My MacBook Air is now matte too!

The new iPad Air 2 is non-reflective and reduces glare by 56%! The "least reflective tablet on the market"...

By Allan Tépper | October 19, 2014

Frequent ProVideo Coalition readers know that I strongly prefer matte screens, whether its for media production or general use. In fact, I recently even sent my MacBook Air to have its display transplanted for a matte display. Now, I am ecstatic to see that Apple is finally offering a non-reflective screen on its latest iPad Air 2. I am only disappointed not to see it offered on the iPad Mini 3 or an any current iPhone. Details ahead.

Review: ThunderBay IV 4-bay 12TB Thunderbolt system

Now we can do RAID5 via software and save substantially.

By Allan Tépper | October 19, 2014

Back in June, I published my first look article on the ThunderBay IV 4-bay 12TB Thunderbolt system with the palindromic price —in this configuration— of US$979, which has since been lowered to US$959. OWC offers other configurations too, with smaller or larger capacity, and now even some with Thunderbolt 2. Ahead I review the various available configuration options (JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 0+1, RAID 4, RAID 5) and compare their performance versus redundancy, logistical benefits of each one, and more.
