  • When 50GB isn’t good enough: 67GB Blu-ray discs coming soon.
    by Mike

    If we were to add up every memory, every recollection good or bad, we would end up with terabytes if not petabytes of data. Of course, actually putting a solid number on a humans lifelong memories is near impossible. However, if you find yourself using Blu-rays to document each and every one of those moments or simply torrent legally download tons of stuff, those 50GB dual layer Blu-rays are no doubt bouncing off their limit. For when 50GB isn't enough, you'll soon be able to reach for that...
  • “Super USB 24-Port hub towers over all other consumer USB hubs with holes to spare…
    by Mike

    If a man were measured by the number of USB ports he had, any man with the "Super USB 24-Port Hub" from USB Fever would easily be labeled a god. While I consider myself a gadget geek, computer guru, and electronic collector, I don't come anywhere close to needing even half of the 24-port hub's maximum allotment. Along the same line, I don't know anyone who would have any need for such a high number of ports. The only logical way I can imagine someone filling up those digital holes is by c...
  • Lockface USB drive opens/closes at the sight of your face.

    I'm not even going to try and hide it -- I have a goldfish memory. I can't remember anything no matter how hard I try. To top it off, my mind wonders so fa... Often times notes are useless as I merely misplace them or forget to look at them. It kind of sucks really. But somehow I've managed to get this far so obviously I've figured out some working formula. As soon as I remember what it is I'll let you know... With so many passwords, passcodes, and passphrases being required by our ...
  • Lose your head and risk losing your data: The USB Surgeon Flash Drive.
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 6:36 am
    Have you heard the old saying "You'd lose your head if it wasn't attached?" I can be pretty forgetful. In fact, I'd venture on to say that I have the memory resembling that of a goldfish -- simple, quick, and short. Hell, notes I write to remember things either get forgotten themselves or lost in the shuffle of the daily grind we call life. Yet somehow I still manage. You see, my head is still attached so I couldn't ever possibly get too lost. Though my little surgeon friend here won't...
  • SNES cartridge reborn as external hard drive.
    by Mike
    Posted December 10th, 2009 at 9:45 am
    Have a gamer and tech geek in your life? Have I got the perfect albeit expensive stocking stuffer for you. The Super Mario World SNES Hard Drive is a labor of love that comes in 320GB, 500GB, and 600GB flavors. I see a lot of custom hard drives pass by me everyday with a majority of them being pretty cool. But for some reason this particular drive really has me wanting it. The size is understandably a tad large for a 2.5" external hard drive because of the larger size of SNES cartridges, bu...
  • USB Sofas: The coolest social/sharing gadget ever.
    by Mike
    Posted November 23rd, 2009 at 3:21 pm
    Thinking of the craziest yet useful gadget wouldn't normally involve a couch. But the minds behind the USB Sofa are some special breed of human. I mean, couches do nothing but sit, stationary, never moving unless one of us humans move them. Why not make all of that wasted space go to good use by cramming in some digital storage? Everything else is becoming a USB drive, why not a couch? The only difference is that the USB Couch is actually useful and clever. You see, the concept is simple, ...
  • Cut the cords and go wireless: “World’s first” wireless external USB drive.
    by Mike
    Posted November 19th, 2009 at 12:54 pm
    Whenever we hear "world's first", "best ever", or any other hype up words, my attention immediately tanks and my hopes trying desperately to lift the ten ton weight off of their shoulders. In the case of this "world's first" wireless USB Drive, the "Imation Pro WX", I'm only slightly inattentive. You see, the drive isn't the first to connect to a host device via the wondrous radio waves around us. Many other NAS type storage devices offer up wireless connections via WiFi. The Imation Pro emp...
  • OCZ introduces the 3.5″ desktop dwelling “Colossus” SSD.
    by Mike
    Posted November 17th, 2009 at 2:35 pm
    With the advent of flash technology came the realization that the old moving storage mediums that current flood the market are on the way out. Flash offers many advantages over it's older, more mobile siblings with the most notable being lower energy consumption and eventual faster speeds. Flash storage based drives, or SSD's as they're now commonly called are increasing in market presence and dropping in price. Looking to join this wave of the future, OCZ has taken it upon themselves to form...
  • Western Digital to announce 3TB hard drives in 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 10:47 am
    The current crop of hard drives max out at 2 TB. If you think this is merely adequate you're no doubt looking forward to when 10TB flash drives are $5 at the dollar store. As cool as it is to dream, we still have several years before storage becomes that cheap or dense. Since I can't give you news of a 10 exabyte drive, I'll patch over the wound with a 3TB drive. Is it here? Not quite. But it's coming. WD was the first to break out with the 2TB hard disk which was a feat of size and stora...
  • Store the force in the palm of your hand with the Star Wars USB drives
    by Mike
    Posted November 10th, 2009 at 2:11 pm
    I don't know why there's a sudden increase in Star Wars gadgets -- first the Backlit Star Wars Coffee Table and now Star Wars USB flash drives -- but Star Wars fans and closet nerds alike are probably hovering on the edge of their seats as we speak. We've seen Star Wars themed flash drives and gadgets many times before but these Star Wars flash drives are just plain cool if not rather similar to many other Star Wars drives on the market. As is customary for popular memorabilia from big name mo...
  • Silicon Power 33-in-1 memory card reader: Cranking it past 10, skipping 11, topping out at 33.
    by Mike
    Posted November 9th, 2009 at 7:51 am
    Throughout the last few years, just about every gadget/consumer electronics manufacturer has felt that they could produce the most cost effective and useful storage format. We as consumers know this to be false, yet still the madness continues on. This madness begets card format after card format until we arrive to where we're at today -- actually needing a 33-in-1 card reader. You may ask yourself, "Are there really 33 different storage formats?" Why yes, yes there are. This memory card re...
  • 320GB now comes in 1.8″ form. Thank you Toshiba
    by Mike
    Posted November 5th, 2009 at 7:35 am
    Small devices need small parts (Capt. Obvious here). Many devices that require some form of digital storage have long moved on from small hard drives and embraced flash storage since prices have fallen dramatically and continue to do so. For some applications however, a traditional spinner may be worthwhile. Say you need more storage than is physically or monetarily possible. That's precisely where the 'ol spinners still reign supreme. Toshiba today announced a new high capacity 320GB 1.8"...
