“USB Deivces Disabled: unplug the device using too much power to re-enable USB devices.” – via: Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/17

I like how MaylorTaylor formulated his question around this topic on superuser:

USB Deivces Disabled: unplug the device using too much power to re-enable USB devices.

Basically he regression tested many permutations of devices, cables, ports, rebooting, etc.

I had a similar problem, and found it hard to track down as it was intermittent. In the end it was not 1 but 2 USB cables being not completely reliable.

So the warning can use some improvement:

  • sometimes it is not a device but a cable
  • it doesn’t indicate on which USB port this happens

50+ and 25+ Ah batteries: Macbook External Battery & Car Adapter Charger from MikeGyver

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/06

Wow:

  • 52800mAH Ultimate External Battery for Macbooks
  • 26000mAH Macbook External Battery & Car Adapter

That’s (nah Triad) 50+ and 25+ Ampere hour of battery capacity.

Which is the similar to what car and motor cycle batteries can hold.

Reminder: check for PCIe SSD upgrades – via: How-To Upgrade the SSD in your MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro, boosting size & speed | 9to5Mac

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/29

Need to check this out in the summer: see if there is PCIe SSDs available for my Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro.

Newer-generation 13″ and 15″ Retina MacBook Pros use newer SSDs with faster PCIe connectors. As of early 2015, no third-party SSDs are compatible with this standard, but we’re expecting to see options hit the market closer to the middle of the year. Some Retina MacBook Pro SSDs will apparently be capable of achieving speeds in the 1.2GB/second range, compared with the 700-800MB/second speeds of stock drives.

Intermittent but frequent OS X pauses may be from iCloud syncing | MacIssues

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/21

fseventer is a great tool for investigating Mac OS X file system events. Like many low-level tools, it requires admin privileges.

This is apparent through the use of the tool “fseventer” which monitors what files on your hard drive are being accessed.
