Many modern portable hard drives already come with hardware encryption, but if you have extra 2.5″ hard drives, you can turn those into secure storage devices with the LockDown USB 3.0 enclosure from Satechi.
Earlier this year, we featured a flash drive with a literally puzzling handmade casing, which requires the user to enter a 5-digit combination via a series of wheel locks to gain access to the flash drive itself.
You know me. Just slap a TARDIS on pretty much anything, and I think it’s cool. But this particular TARDIS is one of my favorite builds in a while. It’s a full-size bookcase made in the form of a TARDIS.
We already know all the specs about the PS Vita portable gaming console. We know it will be landing in Japan on December 17th and in the U.S. and EU on February 22, 2012. We also have known for a while that it would have memory card slots and that those memory cards use a special format that doesn’t work with any other gadget.
We all love salt on our food, even though too much is not good for you. Salt makes everything better. Even hard drives apparently. And that’s good news given all of the things we are storing on our devices.
We have talked about the iTwin USB drive before. When this thing first surfaced, it was for PCs only. The iTwin is now compatible with Mac computers as well and allows the sharing of files between both Mac OS X and Windows machines.
I currently have four USB drives in a tiny pouch in my bag. One drive is for work, one is for personal files, one is a backup of the projects during my final year in school, while the last drive is just for random stuff.
While I agree that 4 terabytes of storage might seem like a lot to some users, it isn’t for others (me included). I’ve been delaying dealing with my hard drive capacity problems for about a year and a half and it’s gotten to the point where I’ll need a RAID array to serve my needs.
Hitachi GST has a new hard drive series that is a very thin and power-efficient. It crams 1TB of storage space onto a slim hard drive with a single platter. The drive is offered in other capacities and will be available in Deskstar and CinemaStar versions.
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”.
While I’m sure that the iMac is a great computer for many users, there’s just something that irks me about a desktop that’s made out of laptop parts. That being said, they still look pretty good, and have decent specs.
This USB flash drive can be clipped anywhere, thanks to the clever way that it was designed. Since USB drives are becoming smaller and smaller, it’s gets easier to lose them. This is one of the reasons why this design makes good sense.
Photography buffs, transfer your pics and vids from one camera to another with the unimaginatively named Camera USB Drive. Measuring 2″ wide and 1.25″ tall, it looks just like popular DSLR cameras. But unlike the real deal, the most important part of this camera is the lens, not the body.
Star Wars fans with weak stomachs, look away! R2-D2 has lost his head! We’re all so used to seeing C-3PO chopped up into pieces, but the little blue and white trash-can droid has usually been the resilient one.
