  • SD app storage comes to WinMo 6.0+

    Well, time to be envious Android users. Microsoft has upped the ante on *stock* features out the door by now allowing Windows Marketplace apps to be installed on SD cards. Android users have been after such a thing for some time now. But if you are fairly knowledgeable around 1's and 0's, adding in said feature after the fact isn't too hard. So perhaps more of a "draw" is in order, no? Either way, WinMo users who are sticking with older hardware and looking at a near future without any Wi...
  • CompactFlash 5.0 and the 144 petabyte memory card.

    For flash storage buffs, the still several year out 2TB SDXC cards seem like it's as good as it'll get, or at the very least, the most exciting thing in flash storage. I too thought that -- until five minutes ago. You see, it was then that I stumbled onto an article highlighting CompactFlash 5.0 and it's new capacity ceiling. So, just how high will it go? How's 144 petabytes sound? Yes, that's a P as in a ton. I don't even have 1TB worth of data (yet) to store on a hard drive, let alone ...
  • 2 Phones + 3 SIM cards = 1 Janus Phone.

    Beyond all the usual hype surrounding Sony, HTC, Motorola, and a whole host of other well known smartphone manufacturers, what else is there really worth seeing at MWC? Sure there's plenty of exciting things to see on the software front too, but I'm talking about something truly unique. Dual-SIM phones anyone? Dual-SIM phones aren't anything special these days as they've been around for quite some time around the world. Here in the US they've failed to catch on for a variety of reasons, th...
  • State of mobile storage: 64GB NAND for smartphones in 2010.

    To some degree, you could argue that a phone with 64GB of flash isn't really newsworthy since the current iPhone is sorta close and the iPod Touch already there. But I disagree. 64GB of storage on a single chip is very news worthy. A few years ago, a single GB of flash storage was insane to think about much less 64 of them all neatly lined up on a single chip. But this is 2010 folks. And thanks to Sandisk and a new 3-bit per cell technology, 64GB nand memory is smaller and cheaper than befo...
  • Asus (ROG) Radeon HD 5870: Blazing speed and power + 1.

    For now, my computer desk (read: kitchen table) sit's unused, relegated to more humble tasks such as holding meals, books, animals, and whatever else gets tossed aside. If the monetary means somehow managed to find their way into my bank account however, that table would be transformed into a pulpit for the greatest gaming machine to ever get benchmarked. Backing up such boastful claims requires a fair bit of hardware muscle underneath the hood. We already know that some form of an Intel Gulf...
  • USB 3.0 PCIe upgrade comes in cheap for those who like pure, blinding speed.

    Disappointed that brand new computer you purchased doesn't have the latest and greatest in terms of USB speed? Simple solution: make it fast. The GH-UIPE302 PCIe USB 3.0 card is a rather inexpensive upgrade option for PC enthusiasts who want to get on the USB 3.0 bandwagon a little early. Can't say I blame them though. While USB 2.0 used to seem fast back in the day, things such as lossless music files, 10 megapixel+ images stored in RAW, and HD movies have shown us everything USB 2.0 isn't...
  • Read SD cards on your iPhon ewith “ZoomIt”
    by Mike

    One of the chief complaints I see with certain Apple laptops is the lack of more ports. The SD port in particular was a big one until Apple recently added them to the Macbook Pros. But an iPhone? The makers of "ZoomIt" seem to think the iPhone platform is a perfect fit for their services. In order to get the full experience, you'll need to pick up both the iPhone ZoomIt app and ZoomIt SD card adapter that attaches itself to the phone. Once plugged in, users can transfer over photos from the ...
  • Nvidia bypassing 300 series cards, jumping straight into the 4’s with the GTX 470 and 480.

    In any given field of commerce, a company will generally wring out every last dollar and marketing opportunity they can from a particular product before moving onto the next generation even if the product they're pushing is grossly old or outdated. In the digital/tech world, such things are often gut wrenching to endure as the technology realm isn't nearly as forgiving with age. Nvidia appears to eschew such thinking as is evident by their announcement concerning their new, upcoming graphics c...
