    So SSD's don't have the longest lifespan...ok their lifespan is substancially shorter than a tranditional spinning hard drive.  But what they lack in life, they make up for in pure speed and durability (shock resistance).  If you have a PCIe slot just sitting unused and unloved on your computer, the PhotoFast G-Monster would love to call it home.  This beast will read/write data at the blazingly fast speeds of 750MB/s and 700MB/s  Said card will come in 256GB, 512G...
  • Yikes…USB Finger is the “real deal”

    Bodily injuries are always a bad thing.  Many people become depressed and unable to cope with life after a serious injury.  Not so for Jerry Jalava, a clever visionary who decided to turn that frown upside down and turn a bad situation into a good one.  "How so" you ask?  Poor Jerry lost the tip of his finger in a motorcycle incident.  But instead of wondering through the maze of life tipless he decided to put that new found empty space to use by creating a prosthetic finger tip which c...
  • 1.8″ 240GB mini portable hard drive by Apricorn

    If you need a really portable hard drive and high capacity flash drives just aren't big enough (or too expensive), Apricorn may have something right up your alley.  Traditional portable hard drives such as a Western Digital Passport are based off of 2.5" laptop hard drives.  This latest miniature wonder from Apricorn uses an even smaller 1.8" hard drive that manages to cram 240GB of space for all of your 1's and 0's.  Because the drive uses a smaller technology, it is a little more pricy ...
  • 1 PB hard drives nearing…

    Ok, maybe 1PB hard drives are still a ways off. But the recent announcment of Samsung's 1.5TB EcoGreen F2EG hard drive that manages to squeeze enough room for 1's and 0's by way of (3) 500 GB platters brings the possibility of Petabye hard drives closer to reality. Although thinking about it, who has Petabytes of data? While 95% of the population won't even use a tenth of that, it's still good to know that the need to store old re-runs of King of the Hill and the Simpsons will now be made...
  • Kingston brings the heat: microSD cards now max out at 16GB!

    MicroSD cards are perhaps the greatest example of how in just a few years time digital storage has drastically revolutionized the way our digital devices store data.  Kingston announced today at MWC that their line of microSD cards will now top out at a full 16GB!  Just a few months behind SanDisk.  Trivial facts aside, just think, that's around 2,200 songs at 256kbps!  And to think it all fits on a card the size of your standard remote control button.  Simply amazing.  Yet we go on wi...
  • You: “250GB SSD is not enough”, Intel: “OK, how about 320GB!”

    Not too long ago (12-18months) we were looking at 32GB SSD and thinking to ourselves, "Wow, that's a lot of flash storage".  Fast forward and now 32GB is becoming a joke, a still rather expensive joke compared to traditional hard drives.  However prices on SSD's are rapidly falling.  Apparently, leaks of 320GB SSD's coming form Intel are making their way through PC manufactures who are being told to expect them this fall.  While this isn't an official announcement from Intel, it is one t...

    When 1TB just isn't enough relax and know that there is something bigger out there.  WD will be launching a 2TB hard drive this week according to Electronista and Fudzilla.  The 2TB is officially dubbed the "The Caviar Green 2000GB WD20EADS".  Whew!  Talk about a mouthful!  Said drive reportedly has a seek time of 8.9ms and spins at 7200 RPM's.  It earns the green title because at times of low demand will slow down to 5400 RPM's in order to save a couple of branches that I'm sure ov...

    Is your measly 8GB flash drive not doing it for your? Or, did you recently lose 30gigs worth of priceless family albums all because your old flash drive died?  If either of those people are you, you're in luck.  The Ultra USB Backup claims the title as the worlds first USB drive to have a one touch button backup feature!  It also doesn't hurt that these flash drives come in capacities up to 64GB!  Wow, a 64GB flash drive.  It doesn't seem like too long where we were getting all foamy at...
