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. It doubles as a backup device for photos and contacts from an iPhone (3G and above) with the help of its sidekick, SD Card… Man.
The world has gone germ and bacterial crazy. Each time I go to my kids’ school, I see all the teachers making the kids use hand sanitizer all the time. I made it through the late 70’s and early 80’s of my youth without washing my hands once outside the tub or shower.
Designers Chih-Wei Wang and Shou-Hsi Fu think that in the future, music albums could be packaged not just in a compact medium, but one that integrates a music player as well. Their concept device Skinny Player is a lot simpler and thinner than the iPod Shuffle, incorporating storage, a battery, a play/stop button and speakers into a Band-Aid-like form factor.
Perfect for downloading copies of the Master Control Program from your PC, these TRON-inspired lightcycles are the latest in the barrage of TRON licensed goodies to hit in anticipation of TRON:Legacy’s impending release.
I have talked about the cool Flash Rods flash drives before. These things are handmade and put flash storage into Hot Wheels cars, making for one really cool flash drive. Flash rods also makes larger external HDDs for the desk as well – and the latest from the company is awesome.
Need to crank out hundreds of flash drives for a business presentation or a trade show? Want to create your own digital business cards? Looking for a great way to distribute your next music demo? The guys at Nexcopy have a nifty solution with their industrial-strength USB duplicator systems.
I have a bunch of old HDDs in my desk that have data on them I don’t want to trash and don’t want on my current computer. If I want to get the data from those drives, as it is I need an external enclosure or to open my computer up and install the drive.
I like to play Rock Band, but I hate having to schlep all the stuff from the various closets and cubbies where I hide the it around the house. The drum kit is upstairs, the sticks are in the junk drawer, and one guitar is under the bed with another in the closet.
A while back, I told you guys about some CD-R disks that look like old 3.5″ floppies. In the story, I said that I’d much rather have a 3.5″ floppy USB drive, and Technabob reader Charles Mangin of Option8 has now indulged us with one.
