Apple Magic Mouse 2 Recharges Stupidly

Having to charge an Apple Magic Mouse 2 with a cord has got to be the stupidest thing for a product you can buy in 2019. This is the perfect use case for wireless charging. I don’t care about a fancy charger built in to the mouse pad. With any standard charge pad (which I […]

Incoming SMS on a Multitech rCell 100

The Multitech rCell 100 is a neat little standalone device with an API that can be used for OOB access and to send or receive SMS messages for things like paging.
