A company called Third Rail Mobility has created the most practical iPhone battery and case combo I’ve ever seen. The company found a way to make their battery charge all other USB-compatible devices as well, which is great because the iPhone isn’t the only mobile device that runs on electricity.
There are a number of backup emergency power generators on the market that allow you to charge your iPhone or other smartphones without a traditional power source. Most of those involve consumables such as fuel cells or use solar panels that may or may not work depending on the environment.
With all of the gadgets people are carrying around these days, it makes sense to keep some cables with you, just in case you need to connect some of them together. This new kit from Incase looks pretty sweet, and the fact that the cables come color-coded makes them even easier to find in the provided handy case.
USB hubs can be slightly boring, especially when you go through them quickly. It’s one of those pieces of hardware that easily breaks down due to either cheap construction, the constant plugging and unplugging of devices, or both.
If you own an Android smartphone or tablet, I bet on more than one occasion you have wanted to transfer images, video, or other data between the smartphone and an external device. This new media reader accessory called the Sanwa USB Reader/Dock will help you out.
I’m of the opinion that anyone who’s been in high school since the 1980s will be familiar with at least a couple songs from the rock band Queen. I’m not sure it’s physically possible to make it an entire football season without hearing We Will Rock You played at least at one game or pep rally.
The utilitarian metal casing of the hard disk drive now serves as a decorative cover for its descendant. This tiny flash drive has no moving parts, doesn’t need to be defragmented and is easier to mount.
We’ve seen a boutique line of flash drives that play upon the fact that data is invisible, which means we can’t see their containers being filled up even if they’re already “full” of data. Here’s another take on that amusing dissonance, an empty bottle with a USB drive cork stopper.
We all have plenty of USB gadgets that we use on a daily basis and it seems that we always need more ports. My kingdom for a port! Without enough ports we are always plugging and unplugging things from our computers.
Took us long enough to get here. A week ago we saw a concept for a USB connector designed to make it easier to recognize the right side of a USB cord. That’s a good idea, but Buffalo’s solution is way better.
DNA sequencing is complex stuff, frequently used in biological research. Having worked in a hospital in the past and having been around lots of lab equipment I can say that sort of stuff is generally gigantic and very expensive.
Earlier today, I bent the USB plug on my flash drive because I jammed it into the hub on my laptop the wrong way. This wasn’t the first time I plugged it in the wrong way, although it’s the first drive I’ve ruined because of it.
Power strips that turn on or off when you turn your computer on or off aren’t new. These things have been around for several years now and they’re good for saving power for people that like to be green.
