  • “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...
  • Portable USB 3.0-to-SATA adapter the best $48 ever spent…

    Think that old, decrepit dying hard drive you tossed in some box never to look at again is still useless? Think again. With as cheap and plentiful as hard drives are becoming these days, trashing an old drive simply because it's too small is all too common. But those precious bits you've tossed aside have so much more potential. One possible idea is to slap it in an enclosure or hard drive dock to make an external hard drive out of it. But who needs another USB 2.0 external hard drive? (I...

    Getting the most of HD content on your computer means having a HD monitor -- hard concept to grasp, I know. However, with all of those extra pixels often comes a fairly high pricetag. Not to mention, powering all of those pixels, especially those demanding top performance from their computer hardware know that the whole shebang can be quite costly. For now, going multi-monitor means spending excess sums of cash on grossly overpriced cables just to connect a monitor(s) to your computer. Thei...

    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.

    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...
  • Affordable USB Power Outlet is Sheer Genius

    It certainly seems like more and more these days, we're charging our electronic gadgets not by the standard power outlets in our walls, but via Universal Serial Bus (or USB) cables plugged into other gadgets of ours -- like laptops, for instance. But we certainly can't lug around one piece of equipment at all times to charge another. Sometimes we have to revert to the "classical methodology" -- plugging into the wall. Which is why the USB power outlet we have pictured is sheer genius. ...
  • Geekify your house with USB wall outlets.

    I love gadgets. Could you tell? With a vast amount of gadgets comes a lot of chargers and cords to keep track of. And believe me, I've got a lot of gadgets. Sometimes finding a computer or one of those nifty wall converters that turns a standard wall outlet into a normal USB port just can't be done. So there you are starring at two completely capable and electrically charged holes in the wall yet no way to harness the energy. If you're like me, spending a couple hours swapping out your stan...
  • The Gas Oven Laptop Cooler.

    At first, hearing the words "gas oven" and "cooler" together will strike you as odd. But in the case of the Gas Oven Laptop Cooler, it makes a little more sense. Laptop coolers are a dime a dozen so when a manufacturer of said products tries to do something different, it can either go very well, or...not so well. In this case, they mostly succeed. The GOLC is a relatively small yet powerful laptop cooler with two big fans in use to keep your lappy cool and happy. One other nifty feature tha...

    Going wireless is a liberating experience that sets apart those who merely like technology with those who can't live with out it. Die hard technology fans. Wireless, especially high performing wireless, is what we care about most. Besides, nothing says old and outdated like a junky cable poking out from your beloved gadgets. Building upon the success of their first gen HDAiR, Atlona Technologies took their customers' ideas and requests to heart by adding one of the most highly sought after f...
  • Cut the cords and go wireless: “World’s first” wireless external USB drive.
    by Mike
    Posted November 19th, 2009 at 12:54 pm
    Whenever we hear "world's first", "best ever", or any other hype up words, my attention immediately tanks and my hopes trying desperately to lift the ten ton weight off of their shoulders. In the case of this "world's first" wireless USB Drive, the "Imation Pro WX", I'm only slightly inattentive. You see, the drive isn't the first to connect to a host device via the wondrous radio waves around us. Many other NAS type storage devices offer up wireless connections via WiFi. The Imation Pro emp...
  • Clean up your registry with USB Scrub

    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...
  • 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...
