Well, isn't this just useful? If you're an avid computer user, particularly a mobile computer user, you've probably dealt with sticking a USB flash drive or USB cable into a USB port "the wrong way." And by that we mean upside-down. Best case scenario, you simply pull it back and try again; worst case, however, you could ruin either the device/cable or the connector itself. UltraTek has a solution to a problem that has haunted (or at least annoyed) computer users for years. The Flipper USB is a male USB end that accepts a USB device or cable regardless of which side is inserted up or down. It's... Read more...

The CeBIT trade show has opened its doors to the world today, and a handful of companies are already out making announcements. Corsair is getting things started right with a new line of ultra-high speed, high capacity USB flash drives. By and large, the flash drive market has grown somewhat stale.

The company has decided to stick with USB 2.0 (presumably to keep costs down), but they're using a new quad-channel architecture... Read more...
