IBM is one of a number of companies working on a next-generation storage memory project. A recent discovery at Texas A&M University is a step forward for the company's racetrack memory. Racetrack memory relies on a nanowire arranged perpendicular to the chip. Current pulses across the nanowires allow data to be shifted as necessary.... Read more...
Just in time for the holidays, Coby Electronics announced a budget-friendly tablet, the COBY KYROS MID7015. This 7-inch tablet is powered by Android 2.1 and features 4GB of internal flash memory as well as a microSD expansion slot. Like other tablets, you'll be able to surf the Web, organize your life, watch movies, and much more on the... Read more...
If you're in the market for a new high-end chassis, Cooler Master has launched an updated High Air Flow (HAF) case you might find interesting. Currently the company is talking up the NVIDIA version but we suspect there'll be a generic equivalent as well. The advantage of the new HAF X, according to CM, is its ability to handle more than two... Read more...
Apple decided to refresh their MacBook Air lineup this year, but rather than simply upgrading the existing machine with a new CPU, GPU or Blu-ray drive, Apple introduced some entirely new pieces of hardware with the new 11" and 13" MacBook Airs. While the 11" machine is certainly intriguing, and a compelling addition to the overall lineup,... Read more...
A week ago today we posted an article examining the so-called "Apple Tax" and whether or not it exists. While the nomenclature isn't actually accurate, as it turns out, Apple does charge a premium for its parts, though it can be argued the Cupertino company provides a little extra as well, whether it be an IPS panel or "eye-catching designs."...

Mougg is the latest cloud-based streaming music service that helps you get your music from Point A to Point B without the need for an MP3 player, USB thumb stick, external hard drive, or anything else on your part. That's because Mougg stores your music on its own servers, which you can access from anywhere with an Internet connection. It... Read more...
So, you're a rock star? Wanna be famous? All that good stuff? Well, if you're a guitar player, you'll need the right tools, and Sanyo has a new tool to consider on stage. The KBC-9V3U Pedal Juice (a member of the Eneloop series, it seems) kills a problem that guitarists have had for years now: batteries. 9V batteries in particular. This device... Read more...
As if it weren't official already, 3D has taken over the world. It's hard to say if the trend will continue this time, but the 3D effect is now filtering down into gadgets that were previously immune to 3D coverage. Even Nintendo's DS will get a 3D overhaul next year, and now Cowon has revealed a media player that will as well. Simply called... Read more...
Well, this is the pain of progress. We love keeping things the same simply because it's easy. It's easy to acquire things that are compatible, and it's easy to forecast the future. But limits are eventually hit, and we have to innovate to move forward, even in the memory realm. The existing memory card formats that we... Read more...
It lives, it lives! The Vostro line lives! We're only kidding, but it has been some time since Dell took the time to radically update the lower-end, low-key Vostro lineup. That changes today with the new Vostro V130, a gorgeous new mobile PC that any road warrior should take into consideration. Dell claims that this is one of the thinnest... Read more...
We just can't help it: Bruce Willis comes to mind when we think of Corsair's latest memory. But we're sure the same is true for any Die Hard fan. Why? The company's newest memory is called Vengeance, and it's no laughing matter. The new module is optimized for overclocking, compatibility, and affordability, with these... Read more...
Smartphone owners aren't the most loyal customers around, according to a survey just published by market research firm GfK. In fact, the survey found that just 25 percent of smartphone owners planned to buy the same smartphone platform system for their next phone. As you might expect, iOS received the highest marks, with 59 percent of owners... Read more...
There are quite simply too many iPod speaker dock options to count. Everywhere you look, another company is coming out of the woodwork in order to introduce an iPhone or iPod dock. Most everyone who would ever want one probably already owns one, but for those who are getting ready to get their first iPod this holiday season, Yamaha has a great... Read more...
In the quest to keep bicycles safe, here's a new idea. Instead of trying to create the invulnerable bicycle lock, how about having it shinny up whatever pole you attach it to instead, and out of harm's way? A German company called Conrad had developed the ultimate bike lock. The making of video (below) shows how it... Read more...
