    Dog tags as a means of self identification for your four legged friend are sooooo 1890. Come on guys, let's get with the program here. Shall we? The Pet ID Tag is the dog tag of the year 2010 and beyond. Essentially it's just a rugged flash drive that can be affixed to your pooch's collar giving whoever finds them in the unfortunate misplacing, a quick, clear, and easy way to get your lost mutt back to your happy, humble abode. It's a great idea really. At only $14.99, it's at least consi...
  • USB/eSATA combo flash drive a boon to those with a knack for speed…

    Transferring large files onto flash drives these days, with multi-GB sized files, can be painfully slow at best, agonizingly tragic at worst. This is all over USB mind you. Extremely portable solutions other than USB are pretty much non-existent. Granted, once USB 3.0 starts going mainstream, USB 3.0 flash drives will of course flood the market and make us consumers happy campers. But what do we do until then? Use the Active Media Products USB/eSATA flash drive combo. The beauty of this ...
  • The ultimate triple dog dare: Man swallows flash drive to “obstruct” information from Secret Service.

    If you ever found yourself on the wrong side of the law, just how far would you go in evading the 5-0? Would you run on foot, by scooter, car, or plane? Would you pull knife, gun, rocket launcher, plasma shifting uber weapon? All of these and more are thoughts that go through a persons head in the few seconds in which they transform from innocent, frightened civilian to hardened criminal. I'm sure that running on a scooter and shooting plasma beams at the police is a much more favorable "goi...
  • Flash drives return to the Department of Justice.
    by Mike
    Posted February 22nd, 2010 at 3:08 am
    After a brief 15-month hiatus, it looks like personal flash drives will once again be allowed inside the Department of Justice. Spurred by a rash of virus outbreaks and compromised computers, the DoD enacted the ban back in late 2008 to get a grip on the damaging and stubborn malware war path. Don't go all hogwild just yet though, bringing in a bin of flash drives and relying on them for home and work use. The new decree strictly mentions "mission critical" jobs as the only time in which f...
  • The USB Econo-hub special: A glow in the dark, plastic eagle.
    by Mike
    Posted February 9th, 2010 at 12:36 am
    What would you say if I gave you a USB hub that was made out of cheap plastic, a crystal eagle, and featured gimmicky blue LED's? You'd probably laugh and hopefully take the joke in good stride. There is of course the ever persistent danger that you'd take that econo-hub and chuck it right back at my face. Seeing as how it costs next to nothing, the loss after it fell to the ground and shattered would be relatively painless. The fake crystal shards in my face however, would not be. On the b...
  • The Woody of 2010 — a simple DIY flash drive.
    by Mike
    Posted February 9th, 2010 at 12:14 am
    Mentioning the word "Woody" to your elders -- especially the "older" elders -- will garner colorful stories and vivid accounts of years past when cars had actual wood on the outside of the body. Crazy stuff. Nowadays, the only thing slapped on the outside of most cars is some form of metal or carbon fiber. Different times, different toys. Seeing as how a ton of wood is now being freed up since it isn't going to automobile designs, why not take the chance to do something crafty and put that n...
  • Is a taxiderm-ified mouse flash drive with light up LED eyeballs simply odd or downright disturbing?
    by Mike
    Posted January 27th, 2010 at 8:24 am
    I've seen some strange novelty flash drives before in my relatively short time span spent on this planet so far. But I think the title of "world's weirdest" or "world's most disturbing" flash drive has been one-upped by the Taxidermy Flash Drive Mouse w/ light up LED eyes. Yes, you read that right, an actual mouse carcass all hardened up and stuffed chock full of wonderful flash storage and light up LED eyes to boot. I have to ask, at what point does the cool or funny aspect of a novelty fl...
  • Steampunk/Hunley replica flash drive the most impressive yet.
    by Mike
    Posted January 21st, 2010 at 9:17 am
    Are you a fan of Steampunk'd gadgetry? I'm kind of on the fence personally. While it is cool to see custom electronics and one-offs, a couple months back there was a huge explosions of steampunk material that frankly, burned me out. A few months out of the public eye however will do wonders for your interest. Not to mention, if done well, Steampunk gadgets are a sight to behold. Take for instance this Steampunk'd USB flash drive/Hunley (old classic submarine) replica. The drive itself is...
  • Game Boy Advance cartridge flash drives.

    Posted January 20th, 2010 at 1:42 pm
    Turning anything and everything into a USB flash drive is still all the rage. While I haven't personally seen as many novelty flash drives flood my inbox, I do still see quite a lot out there by searching on my own. With that said, I'm a geek. You're a geek. Many of us are geeks. What better way to show that than toting around your own custom flash drives? What would you do if you saw some special chap sit down next to your at the coffee shop and whip out his GBA Super Mario Bros. cart...
  • Capacity aware flash drive concept is functional and good looking.
    by Mike
    Posted January 19th, 2010 at 7:40 am
    Form over function function over form. Which is more important? I guess it depends on the task at hand and the perspective of the person looking at said task. All too often in the gadget world, there are two extremes: extremely functional butt ugly products and gorgeous looking boxes of plastic and metal that do almost nothing. The flash drive concept above (designed by Sokolova Ekateryna) strives to ace both. It's main goal is of course to act as a storage medium. It's second job is to...
  • Super Talent releases worlds’s first USB 3.0 flash drive
    by Mike
    Posted November 4th, 2009 at 8:09 am
    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...
  • Rubiks Cube Flash Drive: the ultimate home-made flash drive?
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 9:44 am
    If you're really feeling crafty this weekend, you may want to take in the wonderful display of geeky wonder that surrounds the Rubiks Cube Flash Drive. The process of making your own copy isn't very hard. It just takes a little bit of time. In this case, 3 days. Novelty flash drives are often crap full of crap with stupid designs and pathetic capacities. Custom made flash drives get a little bit of a break because, well, making your own flash drive is cool. It's even better when your c...
  • Corsair FlashVoyager GT stows 128GB of non-moving goods within it’s rubber shell
    by Mike
    Posted October 16th, 2009 at 11:32 am
    Need a rugged, high capacity, and relatively quick flash drive? Look no further than the Corsair FlashVoyager GT now topping out at 128GB. Capacious? Certainly. Super GT? Eh. I have an older Corsair FlashVoyager 32GB and while the size is might handy, god save my soul if I ever wanted to fill it up as that would mean leaving it do it's thing...overnight. While that particular drive I had averaged 8-12MB/second, the GT is roughly around 15-20MB/second bringing a decent bump in speed. An...
  • Watch a USB Drive being born.

    Posted August 25th, 2009 at 5:58 am
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_6mMFmes1s[/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...
  • Corsair Flash Voyager GT 128 GB flash drive comes to the party with some junk in the trunk
    by Mike
    Posted August 14th, 2009 at 6:58 am
    There are big flash drives and then their are big flash drives. The Corsair Flash Voyager GT 128GB flash drive is the latter. Not only does this flash drive have a capacity that will hold more than enough for the general computing population, but it has a fat ass to match. I know what you're thinking. That a flash drive this large will take weeks to fill due to god awful read/write times. Fear not dear techie as the read/write times aren't too shabby (they're a whole lot better than my ol...
  • USB Light Bulb Flash Drive
    by Mike
    Posted August 7th, 2009 at 8:14 am
    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 ...
