    No matter the type of storage format, death will come at some point. We humans exist for but a mere moment when all things are considered. To leave our legacy, ideas, thoughts, and knowledge behind we rely on storage in the form of (these days) DVD's, hard drives, flash memory, and even a few cassette tapes. The problem with these formats is that they are not infinite. Physical compositions degrade, quality suffers, and before long you have a useless piece of plastic. What is the average li...
  • Store the force in the palm of your hand with the Star Wars USB drives

    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...
  • Blockbuster to offer Movie-on-SD card rentals

    Driving all the way down the street to your local Blockbuster to pick up some old, decrepit physical media is a pain. Not to mention, cassette tapes are all but antique and DVD's are losing their luster in this digital age. Blockbuster is one of those businesses who should be scared. Without any physical media to rent, how do they stay in business? SD cards, that's how. Blockbuster is currently undergoing a pilot program in which users can bring in their own SD card and load it up with ...
  • Washing machine 3-port USB hub card reader clock combo. Kitchen sink oddly MIA.

    Love to travel light and efficient? Have a knack for novelty flash drives/gadgets? Look no further than the Washing Machine 3-Port USB Hub Card Reader Clock Combo. Whew! It's quite a mouthful to say yet the entire package is roughly the size of a rubiks cube. Obviously this USB appendage won't wash your laundry. Why someone would want a miniature washing machine sitting next to their computer is beyond me. Hey, I won't judge you. We all have our crutches. Moving on, this buffet of words...
  • Silicon Power 33-in-1 memory card reader: Cranking it past 10, skipping 11, topping out at 33.

    Throughout the last few years, just about every gadget/consumer electronics manufacturer has felt that they could produce the most cost effective and useful storage format. We as consumers know this to be false, yet still the madness continues on. This madness begets card format after card format until we arrive to where we're at today -- actually needing a 33-in-1 card reader. You may ask yourself, "Are there really 33 different storage formats?" Why yes, yes there are. This memory card re...
  • 320GB now comes in 1.8″ form. Thank you Toshiba

    Small devices need small parts (Capt. Obvious here). Many devices that require some form of digital storage have long moved on from small hard drives and embraced flash storage since prices have fallen dramatically and continue to do so. For some applications however, a traditional spinner may be worthwhile. Say you need more storage than is physically or monetarily possible. That's precisely where the 'ol spinners still reign supreme. Toshiba today announced a new high capacity 320GB 1.8"...
  • Google warming up: searching for help/developers for Android SDcard app storage
    by Mike

    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...
  • Western Digital introduces 10k 2.5″ drive. [Mobile Speed]

    Live life in the fast line do yuh? Feeling bogged down by the seemingly slow 7,200RPM the higher end/faster 2.5" drives spin at? Western Digital would like to show you something. Their new WD S25 is a 10k, 2.5" spinning mobile speedster that will bring even greater agility to those who are always on the go. Blow past previous benchmarks with a sustained read/write times of 128MB/s and a 16MB buffer. Further bolstering this speed demon attitude is the 3.0 GBPS and 6.0 GBPS connectivity optio...
  • 2-in-1 Flash drive and phone charger.

    Everything these days is all about consolidating our gadgets into one ubergadget. While not always the best course of action, sometimes it can actually turn out pretty well. In the case of this 2-in-1 Flash drive and micro-USB phone charger, it at least appears that this iteration was pulled off relatively well. Having a flash drive and convenience of a phone charger built in is no doubt a saving grace to those on the go. Reinforcing that can be justified by the rise in popularity of smartph...
  • All under one roof: JVC announces the video lovers trifecta — VHS/DVD/Blue-ray
    by Mike
    Posted October 30th, 2009 at 5:49 am
    No this isn't some sly Pizza Hut advertisement or reference as JVC's latest player to get announced literally has everything under one roof -- VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray. I stopped watching VHS movies a long, long time ago. Heck, getting spoiled day in and day out with 1080p HD means whenever I do happen to stumble upon a VHS viewing I'm left wanting so much more. But not everyone loves all HD or simply loves those golden oldies that have never made the crossover to digital. For that, VHS is stil...
  • 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...
  • Porsche USB drive looks fast. But is it really?
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 1:27 pm
    Enjoy driving mommy and daddy's Porsche or simply dream of purchasing your own and wished with all you might you could have a Porsche branded USB drive to improve your image? Now you can! Often times, high end branded devices in the electronic/gadget realm often suffer from two main problems. They're (1) over priced as you're paying for the brand/image and (2) under powered/under perform. With the Porsche branding you would expect this flash drive to haul 1's and 0's like a speed demon. I d...
