  • Visiting Times Square for New Years? Why not self handedly power that dropping ball?
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2009 at 12:45 pm
    As much as I'd love to, I simply won't be in Times Square for the big ball drop into 2010. But just because I'm not there doesn't mean I'm missing out. Some would argue that staying home (or at least indoors) is a much better experience as you get the benefit of countless camera angles, more coverage of the event, and of course a surrounding air temperature above freezing. The latter of which is a big one for me seeing as how I hate the cold. Since most party goers will start arriving late...
  • “Super USB 24-Port hub towers over all other consumer USB hubs with holes to spare…

    If a man were measured by the number of USB ports he had, any man with the "Super USB 24-Port Hub" from USB Fever would easily be labeled a god. While I consider myself a gadget geek, computer guru, and electronic collector, I don't come anywhere close to needing even half of the 24-port hub's maximum allotment. Along the same line, I don't know anyone who would have any need for such a high number of ports. The only logical way I can imagine someone filling up those digital holes is by c...
  • Lockface USB drive opens/closes at the sight of your face.

    I'm not even going to try and hide it -- I have a goldfish memory. I can't remember anything no matter how hard I try. To top it off, my mind wonders so fa... Often times notes are useless as I merely misplace them or forget to look at them. It kind of sucks really. But somehow I've managed to get this far so obviously I've figured out some working formula. As soon as I remember what it is I'll let you know... With so many passwords, passcodes, and passphrases being required by our ...
  • iCloud launches iCloud Premium complete with 100GB online storage.
    by Mike
    Posted December 16th, 2009 at 2:57 pm
    Online storage and "cloud" services are all the rage these days. With business looking to cut costs and move data storage offsite as well as consumers looking for easier and more convenient ways to share/store their information for easy accessibility may have found iCloud's basic package at 3GB total storage a bit anemic. But the great thing about iCloud was that it wasn't just about storage. Web apps covering multiple spheres including work and play allow consumers to get their work done and...
  • Cold, hard, metal rammed up your arse: The Hard Drive Platter Wallet.
    by Mike

    There's dedicated and then there's dedicated. If the idea of a wallet constructed out of two hard drive platters sounds enticing, you very well may be one of the most hardcore gadget lovers of all time. Honestly you'd have to be pretty hard core to strut around all day with solid chunks of steel in your pocket ready to jab your rear end every time you sat down. From the pictures, it definitely is something that would make quite the conversation piece when you whipped it out to pay for din...
  • Rad Blast: The Boombox of the 80’s miniaturized and stuffed with 2GB storage.

    Take any stereotypical image you have of some inner city residents walking down the street in the mid 80's wanting to share some of their favorite music with the rest of the world. In today's world, we have things such as mp3 players, smartphones capable of streaming all kinds of content, and wireless headphones to aid in our sonic sharing. Those residents of Chicago circa 1982 however have nothing but a box and some beats. The now iconic image of late 80's life in the big cities illustrate...
  • Lose your head and risk losing your data: The USB Surgeon Flash Drive.
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 6:36 am
    Have you heard the old saying "You'd lose your head if it wasn't attached?" I can be pretty forgetful. In fact, I'd venture on to say that I have the memory resembling that of a goldfish -- simple, quick, and short. Hell, notes I write to remember things either get forgotten themselves or lost in the shuffle of the daily grind we call life. Yet somehow I still manage. You see, my head is still attached so I couldn't ever possibly get too lost. Though my little surgeon friend here won't...
  • SNES cartridge reborn as external hard drive.
    by Mike
    Posted December 10th, 2009 at 9:45 am
    Have a gamer and tech geek in your life? Have I got the perfect albeit expensive stocking stuffer for you. The Super Mario World SNES Hard Drive is a labor of love that comes in 320GB, 500GB, and 600GB flavors. I see a lot of custom hard drives pass by me everyday with a majority of them being pretty cool. But for some reason this particular drive really has me wanting it. The size is understandably a tad large for a 2.5" external hard drive because of the larger size of SNES cartridges, bu...
  • USB Sofas: The coolest social/sharing gadget ever.
    by Mike
    Posted November 23rd, 2009 at 3:21 pm
    Thinking of the craziest yet useful gadget wouldn't normally involve a couch. But the minds behind the USB Sofa are some special breed of human. I mean, couches do nothing but sit, stationary, never moving unless one of us humans move them. Why not make all of that wasted space go to good use by cramming in some digital storage? Everything else is becoming a USB drive, why not a couch? The only difference is that the USB Couch is actually useful and clever. You see, the concept is simple, ...
  • OCZ introduces the 3.5″ desktop dwelling “Colossus” SSD.
    by Mike
    Posted November 17th, 2009 at 2:35 pm
    With the advent of flash technology came the realization that the old moving storage mediums that current flood the market are on the way out. Flash offers many advantages over it's older, more mobile siblings with the most notable being lower energy consumption and eventual faster speeds. Flash storage based drives, or SSD's as they're now commonly called are increasing in market presence and dropping in price. Looking to join this wave of the future, OCZ has taken it upon themselves to form...
  • Western Digital to announce 3TB hard drives in 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 10:47 am
    The current crop of hard drives max out at 2 TB. If you think this is merely adequate you're no doubt looking forward to when 10TB flash drives are $5 at the dollar store. As cool as it is to dream, we still have several years before storage becomes that cheap or dense. Since I can't give you news of a 10 exabyte drive, I'll patch over the wound with a 3TB drive. Is it here? Not quite. But it's coming. WD was the first to break out with the 2TB hard disk which was a feat of size and stora...
  • Clean up your registry with USB Scrub
    by Mike
    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 5:53 am
    Flash drives have gone from a rare novelty gadget just a few short years ago to a new type of "novelty" gadget. Nowadays everything gets turned into a USB drive. From space themed drives to food, nothing is safe from the USB trabsformation. But did you know that for each flash drive you plug in, and even any external piece of hardware you attach, at least one registry entry is created? And those entries don't disappear on their own. Before you know it, you could have dozens of excess registr...
