Docking Stations have permeated corporate office buildings for as long as we can remember, and even today, many "business notebooks" ship with a gap in the bottom to connect to a first-party dock that's designed to be chained to one's cube desk. Workers simply haul in their notebook from home, slap it into the dock, and use a ready-made desktop setup.But Mac users have never really had that luxury. Apple has never made a Mac laptop with a built-in port that allowed for a nice, seamless connection to a docking station. Users have always had to seek out third-party "universal solutions" that never... Read more...
Docking stations are great; they allow notebooks to become entirely more functional at one's main work desk, and they allow them to become connected with an array of already-place peripherals (printers, mice, monitors, etc.) The only problem that is few notebooks are designed with docking stations that match perfectly, and those that are are generally just normal business notebooks with lackluster specifications and boring designs. If you've been wishing that a docking station were made for your notebook, the Easy Dock may be it. Source R&D has just introduced the Warpia Easy Dock, which essentially... Read more...

We've seen some pretty odd docking stations in our day. We've even netbook a docking station specifically made for netbooks, and now we're seeing one specifically made for MacBook Pro notebooks. The highly-stylish DeskBook Pro has just been revealed by Zenmo, and in case you couldn't guess, this portable docking station is meant to look as sleek as Apple's own computers do. Promising "unrivaled connectivity," the station is also introducing the company's own ModBay technology. ModBays enable the DeskBook Pro to support internal connection of hard drives, batteries and peripherals, and they're not... Read more...
Timing is a funny thing, isn't it? Just a few short days after Toshiba revealed its new universal docking station, along comes Kensington to give them a little competition. But Kensington's new pair of universal docks have something that Toshiba's doesn't: DisplayLink.The sd300v and sd400v are both designed to pass along video signals over USB, meaning that each of them have DisplayLink technology baked in. The USB docks allow people to connect their display, mouse, keyboard and speakers to any notebook PC though a single simple USB 2.0 connection, meaning that you don't have to connect nearly...

Docking Stations. What comes to mind when you hear the phrase? If you're anything like us, you're thinking of that device your corporate owner gave you on your first day in the cube, and you're probably thankful it's there. But for those that try to use docking stations at home, having to connect your machine to the actual dock can be a hassle, particularly if you'd rather work from a nearby sofa or recliner rather than the typical desk.Toshiba's latest invention helps solves that problem, as the dynadock U USB docking station kills the need to have your notebook connect to the docking station....
