The latest on-the-go storage solution is said to be able to hold up to 250 DVDs, half a billion photos or more MP3 than you'll ever have time to listen to in this life.Officially called the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro, this portable hard drive contains a 500GB 7200RPM HDD and...

This drive can write to an empty Blu-ray Disc at speeds of up to 2GB per minute, but the trick will be finding... Read more...

Throughout most of the 1990s, Diamond Multimedia was one of the major players in the graphics card world.  Their well made cards with solid performance resulted in some of the most well known brand names of the time including the Speedstar, Stealth, and Viper.  After merging with S3 Incorporated in 1999, the resounding failure of their joint contribution: the Diamond Viper II Z200 based on S3's Savage 2000, eventually led to the combined Diamond/S3 company backing away from third-party graphics cards.  In 2003, however, Best Data stepped in...
