    Ben and Jerry was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. For me, it was the whole stereotypical cat vs. mouse thing that always had me hooked. Now that I'm a big boy, (some may dispute that) I still watch cat and mouse drama every day. Except now it isn't a cartoon. It's a bit more "real". Ladies and gents, I introduce to you Apple (cat) and Palm (mouse). The round 'n round battle that these two tech giants this one tech giant, and second, not so giant tech giant (figure it out, it isn...
  • Rubiks Cube Flash Drive: the ultimate home-made flash drive?

    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?

    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...

    Stroll into any electronics store looking for a cellphone charger and you'll walk into a pit of never ending cases full of chargers for countless phones. Which one fits your phone? Well, if you we were smart (or lucky) enough to get a phone that makes use of mini or micro USB, pat yourself on the back. You're already there. But if you're stuck with a phone that uses one of countless proprietary chargers, you no doubt know the hassles that manifest when trying to buy a simple charger. A re...
  • Intel USB 3.0 chipsets not coming until 2011 :(

    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 12:22 pm
    Hope you like slow and steady, because we've got another year full of it. Mass adoption of USB 3.0 won't happen until 2011. If you're looking for somewhere or someone to point fingers and aim projectiles, look no further than "tech and strategy groups" whom are apparently unable to properly communicate goals and deadlines to Intel's product development teams. The two groups aren't quite "on the same playing field" if you know what I mean. It isn't all bad though. While mass adoption won't b...
  • 10-port USB Hub: If you have to ask, you just don’t understand
    by Mike
    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 8:29 pm
    I've got a few USB gizmos laying around here and there as well as more legit devices such as hard drives, I/O devices, etc. But in all reality, I don't have 10 things that I would ever need to use at once. I'm sure that there are people out there though that would benefit from having such wide flexibility. You know, they only make stuff like the 10-port USB hub above because someone, somewhere requested such a device. As hubs grow, keeping physical size to a minimum means port spacing become...
  • Corsair FlashVoyager GT stows 128GB of non-moving goods within it’s rubber shell

    Need a rugged, high capacity, and relatively quick flash drive? Look no further than the Corsair FlashVoyager GT now topping out at 128GB. Capacious? Certainly. Super GT? Eh. I have an older Corsair FlashVoyager 32GB and while the size is might handy, god save my soul if I ever wanted to fill it up as that would mean leaving it do it's thing...overnight. While that particular drive I had averaged 8-12MB/second, the GT is roughly around 15-20MB/second bringing a decent bump in speed. An...
  • Have a laugh at someone else’s expense with the “USB Computer Prankster”
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 8:50 am
    We're all about fun here at GS so when I stumbled upon this little digital gizmo, I was immediately intrigued. The "USB Computer Prankster as it is titled features a few tools that will make playing a joke on your closest friends or relatives all the more fun. As you can see from the image above, the device will unleash all sorts of shenanigans on the keyboard, mouse, and caps lock. Just imagine sitting down and starting a paper only to find the computer take off on it's own mission. Such ar...
  • Comb USB Drive looks stylish, priced stylish.

    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 6:10 am
    For all of the novelty flash drives I've seen, none have necessarily caused a chuckle to form within and burst to the surface. But this particular one did. The Comb USB Drive. Yes. It really looks exactly like a comb jutting out from your computer. Why did I laugh? I'm weird what can I say? Mentally unstable? Possibly. Threat to society? Depends on what you consider a threat....moving on... While it isn't practical for everyone, especially those with tight spaces to work with, it is...

    Here in the states, everyone is looking at Halloween quickly approaching. A few weeks later, the big 'ol turkey strolls by with Christmas soon after. While Valentines day is still several months and holidays away, why wait to get your special someone the perfect gift? If you happen to be one of the lucky men out there with a geeky female significant other, the USB Heart Hub may be the perfect gift. The specs are pretty standard by now: USB 2.0, Windows support all the way back to Win2000, an...
  • The pinnacle of novelty mouse pads: The Hamburger Hut USB Mouse Pad
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 8:37 am
    If you're going to give a novelty gift, you might as well go over the top. Go geeky. Even though more sophisticated and advanced mice are making mouse pads obsolete, that doesn't mean people will leave the classic piece of computer tech behind. Either because they have some sic fetish with mouse pads, or they are technologically incompetent and stand by the belief that a mouse pad is needed with any mouse is beside the point, the Hamburger Hut USB Mouse Pad is the mouse pad to get. Featuring...
  • iTwin is to digital bits what charms are to little girls

    Remote desktop while a very handy and useful technology is so old. Something new, exciting, and fresh needs to come along however. But what could take the place of something so ubiquitous? iTwin would like you to consider them as a potential candidate. iTwin is a USB stick that one person shares with his bestest friend or colleague as to allow them to securely share information (much like remote connection) between two computers over the web. The possibilities of such a device of course a...
