LG Crams a Scanner Into Their Smart Scan Mouse
The computer mouse has received quite a lot of attention in the past few months. From mice with digital photo frames to ones with a digital weighing scale, I thought I’ve seen my fair share of multi-purpose mice, at least for this year.

Transcend Wants to Make a 2TB Flash Drive: Yes Please!

Transcend Wants to Make a 2TB Flash Drive: Yes Please!
Apparently, Transcend is working on a 2 terabyte USB 3.0 flash drive. I think that’s about the best news that I’ve heard recently, because flash drives can never be big enough. The mythical 2TB drive will “be no longer than a human thumb and only a hair thicker than a penny”.

Netflix Lets Starz Walk, Streaming Deal to End
OK, Netflix and Starz listen up – You’re killing me, Smalls! Seriously, the single best thing for me on Netflix is that when Starz has a movie or show I want to watch I know it will all be on Netflix.

Speedlink Xeox Gamepad for the PS3: Yes, it’s for the PS3.
A lot of gamers swear by the great fit and button placement of the Xbox 360 controller, so it’s no surprise that a gaming peripheral manufacturer like Speedlink would sell a PC gamepad that looks a lot like the Microsoft console’s controller.

Blu-ray Return of the Jedi Changed to Make Vader Scream “Nooooooo!”
I don’t know what to make of George Lucas. He pisses me off with the changes to Star Wars he keeps making with each release. The Blu-ray version of the flicks are coming out on September 16 and I know I will buy them changes or not.

Man Gets Confidential Apple Files with His Repaired Time Capsule

Man Gets Confidential Apple Files with His Repaired Time Capsule

Zelda Hylian Shield USB Drive: The Legend of Data: The File Transfer
It’s not dangerous to store data alone, but if you’re a Zelda fan you should still take a look at these wooden Hylian Shield USB drives by Etsy seller Zantaff. Each flash drive measures about 2.5″ x 1.5″ (I guess it’s two-dimensional.

Japanese Scientists Come Up With a Chemical That Turns Biological Tissues Transparent

Japanese Scientists Come Up With a Chemical That Turns Biological Tissues Transparent
A lot of lives (some human, mostly animal) have been sacrificed in the name of science and medicine. It’s hard to completely understand how some biological organisms function or how some processes work because scientists can’t just go ahead and cut something (or someone) up to do so.

Remember that movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs? You know, the one about a young backyard scientist who came up with a machine that could make clouds rain down with all sorts of food by shooting it up with a laser?
