01/13/2012, [CES 2012] What is extremely small, cute as a button, and carries plenty of data? Most of us would remember the Mimobot USB flash drive range from Mimoco that takes advantage of the intellectual property of movie franchises like Star Wars, packaging USB flash drives with a higher-than-normal price tag just because some Star Wars fan wants to collect them all. Well, we will not be dealing with USB flash […]
01/12/2012, [CES 2012] There is one advantage about having a device that boasts of USB connectivity – it is full well capable of juicing up just about anywhere, as long as there is a USB power source that can come in the form of a portable battery, wall adapter or notebook/computer. Kanex has just unveiled their Sydnee at CES 2012, where this sleek recharging solution delivers 2.1A of juice to each […]

01/09/2012, [CES 2012] Victorinox is known for stuffing thumb drives into Swiss Army knives, and its latest creation is probably the epitome of such devices. Demonstrating it at CES 2012, Victorinox’s latest Swiss Army knife features a massive 1TB thumb drive which you can easily flip out just like you would flip out a blade or screwdriver. Just don’t expect to travel with this thumb drive if you’re planning to go […]

12/28/2011, Intel’s Thunderbolt has been largely limited to Apple’s Mac computers, and in a way it was sort of Apple’s answer to the USB 3.0 standard. Due to its limited availablity to Mac computers, it’s really not surprising to see that not many manufacturers of computer peripherals were that interested in making Thunderbolt capable devices, but according to a new rumor, Intel may soon be releasing its Thunderbolt technology in 2012 […]
12/27/2011, One of the drawbacks to the iPhone is that unlike the iPod classic, by default you will not be able to use it as a mass storage device, meaning that if you did not happen to bring your external hard drive or a USB flash drive with you and you needed to copy over some files, you’d be out of luck, but that’s where ego&company steps in with their “ego […]
12/23/2011, Go to any showfloor or event as part of the press, and chances are you will be on the receiving end of a press kit in the form of a USB flash drive, or perhaps a CD if the company is feeling rather antiquated.

12/22/2011, With so much focus and emphasis being placed in renewable energy, going green and eco-friendliness, we don’t see why those sentiments can’t be brought over to some of our most used gadgets – the keyboard and mouse, which is what Brando is offering at their store for $82.
12/22/2011, Love Mercedes-Benzes? Well if you can’t afford one, how about the next best thing in the form of a replica, and not just any replica, but a replica that also doubles up as an external hard drive? If so you might want to check out the Flash Rod Mercedes SLS with a 2.5” unit hidden within the model itself.
12/22/2011, Computers today look nothing like what we used back in the 1980s, and for a good reason too – slimmer desktop casings, monitors and sleeker peripherals just look better. However if you yearn for the days of beige colored hardware and blocky equipment, ThinkGeek’s new Retro USB Mouse might be just for you. While it looks like an old-school trackball mouse, it features the internals of a modern day optical […]
12/21/2011, We’re not sure why anyone would want to own the “smallest USB stick in the world”, but if you wouldn’t mind owning one even if purely for novelty purposes, you might want to check out Deonet’s offering of such a device that’s so small you will require a corded fob to ensure that you do not lose it.
12/21/2011, Gefen churns out a slew of accessories for the home, and one of their latest products would be the USB Audio Amplifier. I did a quick search for this particular device over at their website but came up with nothing, as the closest I got to was the GefenTV USB Audio Amplifier which I figured out might be different, hence I shall not risk the wrath of commentors when they […]
12/20/2011, The fact that our thumb drives are meant to be portable means that we usually take them wherever we go. This could be a trip to a friend’s house, classes at university, passing it around at work, etc. Well with all the exchanging of hands and different environments, there’s no doubt that your thumb drive will pick up a ton of bacteria, so much so that Lexar has deemed it […]
