02/16/2012, It seems that Google is making positive steps towards the realization of their cloud-based storage service, where a GeekWire reader claims that Google Drive has already been activated in his Google account. What you see on the right is the original image as well as the enlarged one (which obviously suffers from a far lower resolution when blown up), being the favicon which appears in the browser frame when the […]
02/15/2012, If you’re in the market for external storage with Thunderbolt connectivity for your Mac computer, you’re in luck as LaCie’s 2big Thunderbolt series of hard drives are now shipping. You will be able to pick them up at $649 for the 4TB (2x2TB) model and $799 for the 6TB (3x2TB) model, with the Thunderbolt cable sold separately (available from Apple).
02/09/2012, Everyone seems to be taking the cloud storage route these days, and Google is not exempt. The Internet search giant has long been working on a cloud-storage service that is simply known as Drive, and assuming it takes off in a big way, it might just prove itself to be a worthy rival of cloud-storage provider Dropbox Inc., a blue-eyed boy in Silicon Valley. Similar to Dropbox in nature, Google’s […]
02/06/2012, Intel has just announced its Intel SSD 520 Series based on a 25nm manufacturing process, and this new series targets the high-end enthusiast market. As it stands, this is the absolute best that Intel has to offer in the non-Enterprise space. We had the opportunity to take test one for a ride, so we put it thought its paces with a few synthetic benchmarks like HD Tune Pro and PCMark […]
02/01/2012, If you own any of Seagate’s GoFlex drives and you feel that the USB 2.0 interface on your MacBook computer is a bit too slow, you might be interested to hear that the company has recently updated its accessory page with the GoFlex Thunderbolt adapter. Basically what this does is that it will allow Seagate’s mobile GoFlex drives the ability to connect to Mac computers via the 10Gbps Thunderbolt interface.
01/30/2012, One of the drawbacks to the MacBook Air would be its lack of storage capacity. However the lack of storage is made up for through the use of SSDs which allow for quicker read/write speeds, which ultimately results in speedy boot/resume times. However if you feel that your MacBook Air still lacks storage but you’d rather not resort to an external hard drive, OWC might have the answer for you […]
01/30/2012, We’re sure that most of you might have heard by now that popular filesharing website, Megaupload, has been shutdown, but what you may not have realized is that it would seem that the website will have all of its files deleted by the end of the week. Yes, when we say all, we do mean all, and that could include files that have been uploaded by users who may have […]
01/26/2012, As the USB 3.0 standard is starting to make its way into our desktop and notebooks, we guess the emergence of more USB 3.0 compatible flash drives is expected. Looking to add to that list of USB 3.0 capable flash drives would be Transcend with their new Jetflash 780 flash drives that will come in either 8GB or 16GB storage sizes.
01/19/2012, So you’re a fan of technology and what not, so what sort of cufflinks do you think could best convey that to other people around you? Well, we’ve seen some pretty techy cufflinks before, but we have to say that these pair of WiFi cufflinks certainly do take the cake, and by WiFi we mean that these cufflinks apparently have the ability to create a wireless hotspot.
01/18/2012, Users looking for some high performance drives might want to check out pureSilicon’s latest offerings in SSDs. Their new drives are part of their Kage 1 Series and will be available in the form of a USB 3.0 SSD or a SATA SSD which are apparently targeted at light enterprise users, and based on its price we can’t help but feel that these aren’t products designed for the regular consumer.
01/17/2012, For MacBook Air owners, one of the biggest gripes some might have would be the lack of an optical drive, and not to mention somewhat limited storage capacity. Of course it is a tradeoff where a larger regular hard drive is replaced with a faster (but smaller) SSD, and the lack of optical drive probably helped make the device as thin as it is. However there are times when an […]
01/15/2012, [CES 2012] Amidst all the Smart TVs, digital cameras, camcorders and the Crystal LED Display that were paraded at the recently concluded CES, something as small as an SD memory card got lost in translation, but thankfully we managed to pick up word on this after all the dust had settled. Sony has expanded its family of SD memory cards with a new flagship series that were specially designed for […]
01/15/2012, [CES 2012] CES 2012 saw Sony announce an improvement in their MicroVault range, where the new models that comprise USM-Q, USM-P and USM-M will include the entire spectrum of users, ranging from those who want ultra-fast, high performance to a more modern, stylish, and easy-to-use model. After all, different strokes for different folks apply here, so there is no need for all storage devices to function the same way, according […]
01/12/2012, Think your SSD is the bomb because it can stash away 128GB of data on something so svelte? The future is far more promising, as researchers at IBM managed to stash and retrieve digital 1s and 0s from an array of a mere 12 atoms, which means the boundaries of the magnetic storage of information have been pushed yet again to what some deem to be an impossible edge. These […]
