Introduced in 2006 for the MacBook Pro, the MagSafe power connector is an Apple-first and Apple-only technology that uses an array of tiny magnets to hold the power cord in place and prevent your Apple product from being pulled off tables or desks. Newer versions of the product feature a different size MagSafe connector, meaning all your old charging devices (and let’s face it, we’ve all lost and bought new charging devices along the way) are now obsolete. Until, of course, an adaptor debuted.
The adaptors, smaller than the power cords, are as guaranteed to be lost when traveling as those pesky power cords and other chargers. Thankfully, the MagCozy by Cozy Industries acts as a leash for MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converters. The simple design keeps the converters attached to power adaptor cords, key rings and Apple Cinema Displays.
The product fits both T-style and L-style Apple power adaptors, and are available in clear, black, green, orange, pink, white, dark blue and glow in the dark. You can easily attach and detach the adaptor at any time, but it remains secured to the cable to avoid misplacement. A pack of two is available for $9.99.

Here are six simple ways to meet someone new while traveling.

The menu is comprised of food primarily created in the sub-alpine Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. Because of this, it stands out among a packed crowd in Boulder’s ever-expanding dining scene.
The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season. Although the temperatures start to dip, there is still plenty of European coastline ripe for swimming and sunbathing well into September. Take advantage of cheaper, off-season airfare and jet to one of these European beaches before fall weather makes its way south.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
While popular destinations around the world are reeling from the effects of overtourism and trying desperately to find solutions, plenty of great destinations that have historically slipped under the radar are gaining ground.
