Imagine if your smartphone could identify cracks in its display and then heal itself, much like your own body does when its suffers a scrape or bruise. It may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but perhaps it is not all that far fetched. Motorola has been granted a patent by the United States... Read more...

This isn’t exactly what we have in mind when we were thinking of a flexible curved display, but LG’s G Flex curved smartphone does indeed bend, a little. In a video shot by The Verge at an event in Korea, you can see that when a person presses down--rather hard, it seems--on the curved back of the device... Read more...
Fusion-io's ioDrive line has become an icon in its own right, proving that all-flash storage solutions -- while pricey -- do fit in our world. Now, the company is taking yet another swipe at the market (citing a target of "webscale" customers) with the introduction of ioScale. This unit was previously exclusive to Fusion-io customers outfitting... Read more...
Microsoft can't do anything to magically make hard drives stop failing when parts go bad, but the Redmond outfit is rolling out a new NTFS health model for Windows 8 with a redesigned CHKDSK tool for disk corruption detection and fixing. "We’ve all experienced the frustration that can be caused by an unexpected... Read more...
And the fast, just keeps on getting faster. And cheaper. And more mainstream. And that's just the way we like it. As hard drives continue to best SSDs and NAND-based storage solutions in price, the latter two are besting HDDs in terms of performance. No shock there, but the "price gap" keeps getting more and more... Read more...
Another day, another round of routers from the labs at Belkin. The company has remained fairly quiet in the networking arena of late, but that's changing this week. The company's newest range highlights MultiBeam technology, which is a new way of distributing signal in order to maximize coverage and speed. All of Belkin’s new routers... Read more...
Networking solutions are a dime-a-dozen these days, but Amped Wireless has a new solution that's actually far more useful and practical than most. The company's new A/V Net Connect is a home Wi-Fi network bridge for audio and video devices, enabling network connectivity for things like Blu-ray players, game consoles and TVs. The AV3000, as...

Data Robotics shipped their first true NAS drive early last month, caving to requests from users around the world to finally add a native Ethernet connection to their otherwise very intelligent RAID box. The storage solution itself is basically little more than a Drobo S (which we just took a deep dive with), but rather than having USB/eSATA/etc.... Read more...
Data Robotics has been making other mass storage devices look sort of silly for years now, as the company's Drobo line of smart storage solutions tends to keep a better eye on your files than the more traditional RAID setups. Just a few short months after launching the Drobo S and DroboElite, the company has announced their first-ever NAS... Read more...
Apps, apps, apps. They're everywhere, and where they aren't, they will soon be. App stores have taken over the world, and they're now leaving the smartphone realm and bleeding over to printers, netbooks and even wireless routers. Belkin is a huge networking player, and the company has been making routers, switches, hubs and all sorts of other... Read more...
Inelegant NAS solutions have been around for years, and still they sell well. All of the organization and data management is left on the shoulders of the owner, and the drive itself simply serves up content whenever you--the end-user--tells it to. The Drobo changed all of that in early 2007, and now Data Robotics is looking to expand its product... Read more...
