    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...
  • 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...

    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 ...

    Earth lovers, tree huggers, and all out green supporters have a new gadget to lust over. While not the first wooden flash drives to come to market, Matthew Ronans driftwood flash drives are nothing short of awesome. The driftwood used in his creations was that of samples taken from the beach on his many trips. Featuring handcrafted flash drive internals with a woody exterior and combined with a geeky USB branding means these drives are truly one of a kind. I'm actually pretty intrigued! ...

  • Overpriced convenience: Kingston 256GB flash drive

    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...

  • Store your digital bits in an analog tube. Analog vacuum tube that is…

    Audiophiles and a few other geeky dablers are this day and age really the only individuals who would have or still be around vacuum tubes. Once a staple of electronics, they are now relegated to niche products and audiophile equipment among others. When geeks get bored, they improvise and create Frankenstein gadgets that at times truly wow us all. While this particular mash up doesn't necessarily "wow", it is helluva cool none the less. The creative folks over at CF14 Industries have taken...

    Often times, wearing geeky articles of clothing or those with geeky pictures or slogans are more times than not, as the context implies, very geeky. Such things don't always make you popular with the general public as said garments aren't always the most fashionable. Calvin Klein would like to charge the perception of geeks into something that everyone likes. Introducing the Calvin Klein USB Sunglasses. Most users will have plenty of room for all of their digital goods via the drives 4GB c...
  • Exactly how much is a Petabyte?
    by Mike
    Posted July 8th, 2009 at 7:14 am
    The world in which we live is increasingly digital. More and more of what we do and what we store online is become larger in file size, more complex, more graphically rich, higher bitrates etc. While it may seem like so long ago, 1998 was not that long ago. Back in the '98 day, 1 measly Gigabyte cost a whopping $228 dollars. By 2005 that same Gig now cost $3.88. And 2007 brought a new low: $0.88. Prices and sizes of hard drives have thankfully kept up with demand at all points in tim...
  • Why Novelty Flash drives are nothing but “Novelties”
    by Mike
    Posted July 6th, 2009 at 8:30 am
    Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days with so many different shapes, sizes, colors, etc. It seems like everything is getting the USB innards rammed inside of them in order to squeeze out a few more pennies in sales in these trying economic times. While the more mainstream drives tend to be boring sticks of black and grey, novelty flash drives of cute little critters and last nights dinner have been popping up...everywhere. So just how useful and fast are these novelty things? Test Fre...
  • Looking for a 64GB Windows 7 compatibile flash drive?
    by Mike
    Posted July 2nd, 2009 at 9:41 am
    Flash storage has gained in storage capacity exponentially the last couple years. Now carrying 32, 64, and even 128GB in the palm of your hand can be had (for the right price of course). Those bleeding edge techies who are currently trudging along on Windows 7 beta's and RC's whom also need a high capacity flash drive that is compatibile with said OS now have an early friend in A-DATA. While major issues with current flash drives that aren't "officially supported" by Windows 7 are still wor...
