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.
While LaCie isn’t new to the rugged hard drive market segment, they’re about to release a miniaturized version of their popular Neil Poulton designed hard drives, which are shock, drop and rain-resistant.
When I first saw this gadget, I figured it was some sort of Cryptex designed for hiding away secrets in the bowels of a tomb or under the Vatican. But what you’re looking at here is just a really, really cool USB drive.
Check out this cool USB flash drive that was designed by Alain Berteau for Tamawa. This flash drive is made out Bakelite, the same material out of which they make billiard balls. What’s really cool is that you can choose a between a combination of 7 colors for each of the ‘beads’ that make up this flash drive.
Transferring files to and from iOS devices isn’t as simple as it should be. Instead of having it recognized by computers as a storage device for easy file handling, we have to use an intermediary program, either syncing via iTunes or a program like DropBox.
Back when Iron Man 2 came out, there were some Iron Man USB flash drives floating around, and I have to say I thought they were kind of silly looking. They looked more like bobble-heads to me than a serious action hero collectible.
