  • Clean that dirty SSD with Indilinx - Like giving an old man a double shot of youth
    by Mike

    Even though the storage market is quickly shifting to solid state memory and flash devices, the lingering issues persist. As SSD's and flash memory age, they begin to slow and run the risk of blocks of memory failing. Not necessarily a great retirement option to look forward to. While the blocks of memory failing is still something to worry about, slowing down with age will soon no longer be an issue. However, there is hope for the mechanical eschewing foe thanks to Indilinx. The ingeniou...

    Another day, another novelty flash drive. If you've grown tired of these types of posts, pass on by, but if you're in the mood for the latest in USB excitement, boy have we got a treat for you. The USB Light Bulb Flash Drive takes the shape of an old incandescent light bulb but with flash memory crammed inside. The drive comes in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB sizes for $19, $22, $32 respectively. The only two downsides I see to this drive is that it doesn't actually light up (though it would actually ...

    Earth lovers, tree huggers, and all out green supporters have a new gadget to lust over. While not the first wooden flash drives to come to market, Matthew Ronans driftwood flash drives are nothing short of awesome. The driftwood used in his creations was that of samples taken from the beach on his many trips. Featuring handcrafted flash drive internals with a woody exterior and combined with a geeky USB branding means these drives are truly one of a kind. I'm actually pretty intrigued! ...

  • SD Cards get bump to 64GB thanks to Toshiba
    by Mike
    Posted August 4th, 2009 at 6:28 am
    When 32GB of pictures just isn't enough, Toshiba is there to save you. The SDXC cards will feature speeds of 35Mbps and 60 Mbps for write/read respectively. The first samples of said card are due to hit manufacturers' secret labs this November with the general public getting graced sometime in spring of 2010. While I would much rather have several smaller cards (I cringe at the thought of losing 64 GB worth of data, especially pictures), some people just gotta have it all. Who are you? ...

    Animal lovers and gadget aficionados who have a limited number of USB ports will find the Penguin 4-port USB hub the saving grace in their daily computing lives. Not all computers have an ample amount of USB ports -- whether by manufacturer design or because your simply a geek with too many gadgets, a solution is needed. Thankfully the Penguin Hub doesn't dissapoint. As one would expect, the hub is pretty standard in performance and features. The entrance fee is rather small: $12. You hoo...
  • Overpriced convenience: Kingston 256GB flash drive
    by Mike
    Posted July 28th, 2009 at 5:56 am
    Now I'm a big supporter of convenience and ease of use, however, there comes a time when even the most simple minded have to sit back and really question just how much all of that convenience is worth. Enter the world of 256GB Kingston flash drives. The latest from the King is sure to make the less technically knowledgeable individual gape in pure and utter astonishment by the sheer size and amount this miniature device can hold. While the size is massive, drives of this magnitude usually s...

  • Go old school with the TV Bag
    by Mike
    Posted July 17th, 2009 at 6:00 am
    Forget practicality and convenience, this one off custom purse/bag will look stylish, set yourself apart from the rest of civilization as a geek, and manage to not break the bank. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for your back. This old battle worn Sony TV has gained a new lease on life. Instead of spending the next millennium sitting in some dump leeching toxins into the ground, this TV will instead come back to life as a very handy, very loved bag. I would imagine such a bag can't b...
  • Flex DVD another “final stand” in the physical vs. digital format war?
    by Mike
    Posted July 16th, 2009 at 9:16 am
    Label me intrigued but not enough to buy -- Flex DVD, a newcomer in the physical format arena brings with it green promises and flexibility to boot. The Flex's claim to fame is that it needs only 50% of the raw plastic to form each disc...and of course that the disc is highly flexible without breaking. Not to mention, it's much thinner than traditional DVDs at a mere 0.6mm. Because of the diet, mailing said discs will be much cheaper as well. Super! How soon until we getting junk discs in...
  • Store your digital bits in an analog tube. Analog vacuum tube that is…

    Posted July 15th, 2009 at 11:42 am
    Audiophiles and a few other geeky dablers are this day and age really the only individuals who would have or still be around vacuum tubes. Once a staple of electronics, they are now relegated to niche products and audiophile equipment among others. When geeks get bored, they improvise and create Frankenstein gadgets that at times truly wow us all. While this particular mash up doesn't necessarily "wow", it is helluva cool none the less. The creative folks over at CF14 Industries have taken...
