    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...

    Do you have the need for speed? Do you need a flash drive that is small and offers up copious amounts of storage? If so, why not take a gander at Kanguru's 64GB dual-interface flash drive. The nifty feature of this flash drive isn't necessarily the size (as more 64GB flash drives are becoming commonplace) but the dual-interface design with a USB 2.0 and eSATA connection ensuring you have the fastest speeds wherever you decide to hook up. With USB 3.0 around the corner, sadly this drive wil...

    [youtube][/youtube] Technology such as flash drives, how they work, and an overall amazement at how storage technologies work day in and day out go unnoticed by most. They simply expect their little flash drives to work when the moment arises not giving a care in the world to how exactly such things are made. While the general public won't care and again just want it to work, the geek in you craves for such knowledge and inside info. How exactly does...

    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...

Secondly, it may be because you were holding the Strawberry Chocolate Cake USB Hub. As the name implies, the SCC-USB Hub closely resembles one of life's sweetest treasures ensuring that while you move invisible digital bits your stomach can call out for its own bits - not so digital. Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and OS X users can all partake of...

    If you are the type that either doesn't wear pants with pockets or don't have keys to attach a USB flash drive too, the Slim Data flash drive may be the device for you.  Instead of a more common boxier shape, the Slim Data relies on a "casing" that is roughly the same size and weight as a credit card.  Because of this, expect your wallet to being carrying another high value item with plenty of personal information on it.  While it makes it easier for thieves to steal your data as now more...
  • Virgin Mary USB drive: Keeping your data in the “cloud” *not really*
    by Mike
    Posted May 11th, 2009 at 5:20 am
    It seems that with every passing day, dear Virgin Mary seems to find refuge in another mundane physical object, somehow bringing with her or revealing a "miracle." We often laugh as people will become so enamored with the Mary's presence that they will turn the once normal object, such as a piece of pasta, into a new religious keep sake to be passed through the generations. Since this nonsense and Mary herself aren't going away anytime soon, Louis Eslava has decided to design and manufacture...

    Posted April 7th, 2009 at 6:04 am
    If you are thinking to yourself the "race" to create the most absurd and "out there" USB drive is anywhere close to nearing an end, you my friend would be dead wrong.  Why would someone want to carry around a lifeless, unoriginal, and downright guaranteed to lose typical flash drive when you could instead be toting around the USB Rubber Chicken?  Said drive will surely set you apart from the crowd (literally) as you will have to take up two seats at the table to accommodate the massive spr...

  • Yikes…USB Finger is the “real deal”

    Bodily injuries are always a bad thing.  Many people become depressed and unable to cope with life after a serious injury.  Not so for Jerry Jalava, a clever visionary who decided to turn that frown upside down and turn a bad situation into a good one.  "How so" you ask?  Poor Jerry lost the tip of his finger in a motorcycle incident.  But instead of wondering through the maze of life tipless he decided to put that new found empty space to use by creating a prosthetic finger tip which c...
