The need for speed isn't lost on us -- we're always yearning for an SSD, RAM module, you name it, with faster throughput. It doesn't end when it comes to flash cards, as the demand placed on HD-DSLRs is getting quite severe now that 1080p30 video is the norm. With more and more DSLR cameras able to shoot HD video, the CompactFlash Association recognizes that there will be an increasing need for speed in future cards. In fact, as the typical CF card is taking a backseat to XQD (a format that's just breaking through, and is featured alongside the CF card in Nikon's D4), the CompactFlash Association... Read more...
MiFis and mobile hotspots are small, but they aren't tiny. Yet. Option is aiming to redefine how a wireless hotspot / router should look, by introducing the smallest one you've ever seen. The XYFI is indeed hailed as the world's tiniest mobile hotspot, offering Wi-Fi signals to up to eight devices. In addition to connecting to cellular networks to share Wi-Fi, XYFI also connects to WiFi presenting the user as a hub to connectivity and providing carriers with significant Wi-Fi offload benefits. XYFI is powered via USB connection, meaning users can take advantage of a wide variety of USB-enabled... Read more...
MicroSD cards. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Okay, so that's definitely a stretch, and definitely doesn't genuinely apply to microSD cards, but if you're an Android user with loads of media, there's no doubt that these things are super important in your daily life. And just in case the 8GB or 16GB card that shipped with your smartphone is growing small on capacity, Kingston is introducing a new 32GB Class 10 microSDHC card into the family. That means that a 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB version is out there, a full plate to choose from. The Class 10 card offers a minimum data transfer... Read more...
Thunderbolts aren't reserved for the midnight sky and HTC's smartphone lineup anymore. Apple has turned Thunderbolt into somewhat of a household name already overnight, and while the newest iMac machines are hogging the spotlight this week, the Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Pro machines that shipped earlier in the year are the star of this show. Matrox has made a name for themselves by popping out dual-card and tri-card solutions, and this new one is no different. The DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP Multi-Monitor adapters are now compatible with Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Pro machines, so your... Read more...
Now this is the definition of convergence! A graphics card, and a network card, all wrapped up in one nice, neat package. The package is being co-delivered by Bigfoot Networks (providing the NIC) and VisionTek (providing the GPU). The end result is the VisionTek Killer HD 5770, which is a PCIe x16 card that only takes one slot in your motherboard, but provides a wealth of functionality. Bigfoot has been widely known in the hardcore gaming sector, as they have produced a number of dedicated network cards up to this point. Their cards are known for steadying jitter and generally providing a better,... Read more...
Talk about a marvelous name for a product. In the world of flash memory, it's hard to keep any two devices apart. They all just seem to bleed together, accomplishing the same task regardless of the label. But SanDisk has somehow figured out a way to perk itself up in the midst of such an industry. How so? By naming their newest SD card the "WORM." The SD WORM card is a rather unique Secure Digital card, designed to actually store images for up to 100 years, which is far longer than the average disc. Most archives have used tapeless storage that was built to last for centuries, but having a memory... Read more...
Bigfoot Networks hasn't introduced a new product in years, at least on the consumer-facing front. The company came into the CE realm with a bang a few years back claiming that their wild new NIC card could actually lower ping times and improve your responsiveness in online gaming. Those claims have been debated ever since, but either way, the company is today giving the gaming world another chance to buy in. The company's newest product is the Killer 2100, a next generation gaming network card for desktop PCs. According to Bigfoot Networks this card "combines elements of speed, intelligence and...

If you're looking for bandwagons that are heating up as the new decade gets set to begin, look no further than these two: 3D and Augmented Reality. The former has gained all sorts of industry support, from film producers to consumer electronics mainstays, while the latter is still building a loyal following underground. But at this rate, it won't be long before AR is a common word in the every day techie's vocabulary, and if we really want to take a wild stab at things, we'd say that MTV will be using this stuff on air (in a goofy manner, no less) within just a few years. Predictions aside, Rosetta... Read more...
While AT&T struggles to stop Verizon Wireless from calling out its 3G network on national television, the company is still plugging along by selling more and more devices that can be used on it. Sierra Wireless has had a long standing relationship with the US carrier, and that relationship seems to be growing with the introduction of the USBConnect Lightning.This is the company's newest USB WWAN card, which enables any USB-equipped machine (which is pretty much all of them made within the last decade) to hop online wherever an AT&T signal is found. It won't actually be on sale until November... Read more...
We had to do a double take to ensure this was real, but sure enough, the video card shown here is no joke. Though, it does have something in common with The Joker. In what we believe is a first for any company, MSI has just released a Batman video card. Let that sink in: a Batman-themed GPU. In fact, the company is "proudly" introducing the N260GTX-T2D896 Batman: Arkham Asylum Edition GPU, which ships with a Harley Quinn image on the card as well as the PC title "Batman: Arkham Asylum." If you can get past the crazy antics, you'll find an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 onboard, 896MB of GDDR3 memory and... Read more...
