  • Google warming up: searching for help/developers for Android SDcard app storage

    Well stomp on frogs and shove a crow bar up my nose. SD app storage, a feature that has been requested across many platforms to alleviate space issues when meager amounts of device memory are concerned have been around for several years. WindowsMobile, a widely panned and criticized as "old" mobile OS has had this feature for years. So why does a modern OS such as Android miss out? Since Android has been levied against Apple and Microsoft as a legitimate contender, being limited to at most 2...

    Speed. Pure blinding speed. That's what Super Talent is dishing out with their "Super Talent RAIDDrive" USB 3.0 flash drive. Instead of crawling along at USB 2.0's pathetic excuse for speed, the RAIDDrive will effectively shuttle your 1's and 0's back and forth before you even know what's happening. According to Super Talent, the drive will run at a brisk 200MB/s (with a legacy driver). If using a newer, A UASP driver (USB Attached SCSI) driver, end users will be able to achieve up to 320...
  • Clean that dirty SSD with Indilinx - Like giving an old man a double shot of youth

    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...
  • Iceberg humping Elephant USB drive great for the kids

    Maybe my mind is a tad in the gutter this fine Monday what.  I call it as I see it.  Childish humor aside, the Elephant USB drive does as most USB drives do, storing data, except with a small twist that not all drives offer - water protection.  Housed inside a removable silicon jacket, the house of colors (available in black, blue, pink and brown) Elephant Flash Drive will give the youngsters a generous 4GB of storage.  What do those youngin's have that could fill that?  ...
  • Add an extra level of security to your digital bits with the USB Fingerprint Security Flash Drive
    by Mike
    Posted June 10th, 2009 at 8:26 am
    Fingerprint scanners and readers are becoming more ubiquitous on laptops as the threat of theft with a mobile device is obviously much higher than that of a desktop based computer. Flash drives with encryption technologies are nothing new either. However, blending the two while itself also is not "new", is still something that isn't widely seen in the flash drive scene yet. If mobile security is at the top of you list, you may want to give the USB Fingerprint Security Flash Drive a look. W...
  • 128GB nano SSD redefines “portable hard drive”
    by Mike
    Posted June 9th, 2009 at 8:00 am
    While traditional spinning hard drives are becoming more and more endangered as SSD's drop in price while rising equally in reliability and storage space, even the standard 2.5" SSD has a new competitor. Except this time, the competitor is one of its own. Shown off at Computex, the nano SSD drive looks to usher in a whole new range of possibilities for SSD's and the devices that they are incorporated in. One look at the picture above shows you just how great a feat science has once again ac...
  • Lego Flash Drive lets you build miniture blocks of 1’s and 0’s

    If you're a fan of Legos and all things that remind you of your childhood, the Lego Flash Drive could very well make its way into your home and coax more money from your wallet, loosening the death grip that is surely embracing it. This tiny building block turned digital vault will come with a tiny storage to match that tiny size. The 1GB of available storage won't appease all users as many have much more than 1GB they need to take with them. However, given the size and construction of thes...

    Posted May 19th, 2009 at 9:48 am
    Those in the market for a blazing fast SSD who are fortunate enough to have been able to attend CeBit will no doubt know about OCZ's Z-Drive screaming fast SSD. With read/write speeds of 500MB/s and 470MB/s respectively, the drive is definitely fast. OCZ has finally released pricing and storage specs and I have to say the results aren't surprising though still painful to bare. The Z will come in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB sizes and ring in at a stratospheric $1,561.30, $2,450.50 and $3,368.99 al...
  • The enternal data backup solution: The Cockroach Flashdrive
    by Mike
    Posted May 18th, 2009 at 10:02 am
    I can understand cardboard/earth friendly flash drives, Watch USB Drives, and even Panda USB Drives, but I just can't comprehend anyone wanting to show off their Cockroach Flash drive. Said drive is pretty self explanatory, it's the guts and gore of flash memory chips and circuitry shoved up a cockroach rectum. Data is not eternal as data loss can happen to anyone, any device, at any time. However, given a cockroaches tenacious ability and drive to live, even through things that would wipe ...

    Just when you though technology had hit a temporary roadblock or wall in regards to "green/eco-friendly" technology, designer and forward thinker Colin Garceau-Tremblay would like to remind you that we still have a ways to go before reaching that wall. Introducing the "Recycled Cardboard USB Flash Drive." As the name clearly depicts, this drive, if ever materializing into a real object, would be fabricated out of completely recyclable cardboard making the impact on the evironment as miniscul...
  • Turn your old Cowon X5 into a Compact Flash toting powerhouse of audio nirvana and flash goodness
    by Mike
    Posted May 14th, 2009 at 5:00 am
    For many, MP3 player is synonymous with iPod.  However, in terms of audio quality, the iPod is far from the top of the heap.  Back when hard drive mp3 players were big, units such as the Rio Karma, iRiver iHP-120 (my favorite...mine still works), and Cowon's X5 were the real kings of audio when actual audio quality was considered - something that seems to have fallen by the wayside today.  If you want to bring some new school love to an old friend, in this case an old Cowon X5, reinvent y...
