While I haven’t had time to watch the most recent Pirates movie, there are still many people who love Johnny Depp’s drunken Jack Sparrow character. This this little handmade Jack Sparrow USB drive is perfect for fans of the drunken rogue pirate.
Eli Carter’s grandfather was an accomplished nerd – he worked on software that was used on fighter aircraft, on the Apollo missions and even wrote the first software that could operate a nuclear reactor. When his grandfather passed away, Eli was tasked with archiving the 443 3.5-inch floppy disks that his grandfather left.
…at least I don’t think it will. Of course the idea of plugging anything that looks like a bomb into one of your USB ports might be a risky endeavor. This is exactly the sort of drive that would be loaded with a keylogger, root kit or trojan.
It’s common today for ultraportable notebooks and netbooks to come without an optical drive of any kind. The notebooks and desktops that do come with optical drives often lack the latest features like support for 3D Blu-ray.
If you frequently use CF or CFast cards or have a bunch of them lying around unused, you should check out these CF & CFast drives from Addonics. Using these drives you can access up to 6 cards simultaneously, either as individual disks, as a single boot drive or a combination of both.
There are lots of ways of accessing your files remotely, the easiest of which in my opinion would be to use Dropbox. But if you need more storage, or are just too stubborn to learn how to set-up your own Dropbox account, then you might want to check out iTwin.

I’m liking this new thick acrylic shelf that can be mounted underneath your desk for either your Mac Mini or a Time Capsule hard drive. It’s the perfect way to clear your desktop, if you like to keep things tidy.
OCZ may be vacating many of the markets it used to be in, but it is taking their extra resources and putting those towards making cool gear like the new line of Vertex 3 SSDs. These solid state drives are so fast, the word fast seems too slow.
The latest concept design from Art Lebedev Studio is an unusual one. If the Art Lebedev Studio sounds familiar, you probably recognize the name as the people that teased us with lots of cool looking OLED keyboards for years.
If you are a fan of odd and quirky USB gear that serves a purpose you will like these new flash drives. The drives come from Bader Models and are offered with a bunch of different commercial airliner logos and colors.
Sometimes the simple stuff is the coolest to me. I have a bunch of stuff sitting under the TV screen in my living room. I have the Kinect and my center channel speaker for starters. When we play Wii I put the sensor for it there too so it can pick up my daughter better.
As expected, some new solid-state drives are being showcased at this week’s CES. Micron was the first to show things off with their RealSSD C400 drives – based upon a 25-nanometer NAND flash die-based drive.
Superheroes and saving go hand in hand, so it was only a matter of time before a storage device branded as such came out. From Iomega, House of Storage, comes the SuperHero charging dock.
