According to the Charlotte Observer, the new North Carolina Apple grounds will be solely for iTunes and App Store support, offloading a significant p...

    Often times, wearing geeky articles of clothing or those with geeky pictures or slogans are more times than not, as the context implies, very geeky. Such things don't always make you popular with the general public as said garments aren't always the most fashionable. Calvin Klein would like to charge the perception of geeks into something that everyone likes. Introducing the Calvin Klein USB Sunglasses. Most users will have plenty of room for all of their digital goods via the drives 4GB c...

    If you're one of the fine hard working individuals in the world that gets to sit down each and everyday and a nice and dull cubicle, first off, all my condolences are off to you. Second, do you ever get tired of staring at stupid hole cut out in your desk for cables to pass through? It's nice that they make it more than big enough for whatever you plan on cramming down there, but what if it is just empty space going to waste? Sure you can put something over it -- outta sight outta mind righ...

    The world in which we live is increasingly digital. More and more of what we do and what we store online is become larger in file size, more complex, more graphically rich, higher bitrates etc. While it may seem like so long ago, 1998 was not that long ago. Back in the '98 day, 1 measly Gigabyte cost a whopping $228 dollars. By 2005 that same Gig now cost $3.88. And 2007 brought a new low: $0.88. Prices and sizes of hard drives have thankfully kept up with demand at all points in tim...

    Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days with so many different shapes, sizes, colors, etc. It seems like everything is getting the USB innards rammed inside of them in order to squeeze out a few more pennies in sales in these trying economic times. While the more mainstream drives tend to be boring sticks of black and grey, novelty flash drives of cute little critters and last nights dinner have been popping up...everywhere.

    Posted July 2nd, 2009 at 9:41 am
    Flash storage has gained in storage capacity exponentially the last couple years. Now carrying 32, 64, and even 128GB in the palm of your hand can be had (for the right price of course). Those bleeding edge techies who are currently trudging along on Windows 7 beta's and RC's whom also need a high capacity flash drive that is compatibile with said OS now have an early friend in A-DATA. While major issues with current flash drives that aren't "officially supported" by Windows 7 are still wor...

    In many computer users' lives, the time will come when your computer isn't acting quite as happy and peppy as it once did. The computer golden years aren't as fond as the human variant not only in the demands required of aging technology, but also in the fact that "old" comes about relatively quickly in the tech world. With Apple's latest addition of an SD card reader on the MacBook Pro line, new possibilities are now available such as actually reading SD cards without having to use some stu...

    Posted June 27th, 2009 at 8:57 am
    While I have seen quite a few versions of the lowly USB Hub, this particular one is rather unique. Instead of being just your average, run-of-the-mill 4-Port USB hub, the makers of the Airplane hub decided to throw in an actual spinning propeller on the front of the hub to keep all of you overheating gadgets and geeks nice and cool. If you're worried about having to constantly deal with a spinning propeller freezing you to death and sapping non-stop energy, don't. Their is a convenient...

    Gadgets aimed towards the younger years of our lives are becoming more common place as increasingly complex electronic circuits make their way into said gadgets.

What better way to reward little Jimmy than to give him something that will allow him to connect a good number of his gadgets all at once: The ...

    Have a thing for arts and crafts?  Like to get your hands dirty (figuratively speaking)?  If you answered yes and yes, then the Handmade Duck USB drive is just the thing for you.  While you yourself don't actually stitch anything together, having a digital device that looks so "natural" is truly unique and sure to wow your knitting buddies.  Besides, who likes the sight of unsightly and garish plastic casings?  Why not enjoy your mobile data storage with something softer and a more "do...
