There are flash drives, and then there's this. Kingston has had their feet in the entierprise market for years now, and while they're obviously responsible for a number of the more traditional USB keys, the newest is definitely meant for the pros. The company's new "Managed" government-level secure USB key is tailored for use by corporate customers, ones that simply cannot ever afford to have their mobile data in harm's way. It offers high-end security from BlockMaster, and the company's calling the DataTraveler 4000-M Managed a "fully managed version of the company’s DataTraveler 4000 product. Specifically developed and priced for enterprise deployments." It uses the company's SafeConsole... Read more...
Kingston's HyperX memory line has been sporting those trademark blue heatspreaders for as long as we can remember, and they still are, only now they've been updated a tad. The new look HyperX Genesis line now boasts a blue color heatspreader with a military/ballistic trim running across the top, similar to what you'd find on the Genesis Special Edition Grey modules designed for Intel's Sandy Bridge platform. Other than the new digs, the HyperX line is exactly as you remember it, right down to the SKUs. Part numbers and performance will remain the same, as will the frequencies. Kingston says it's currently transitioning all SKUs in the Genesis family to use the the new heatspreader, which range... Read more...
Lookie here, more RAM! Earlier in the week, Kingston dished out new mobile memory. Today, it's the desktop side getting some attention.

Pricing? $104, $190 and $379 in order... Read more...
Kingston -- always looking to one-up the competition. Nothing wrong with that of course, but you best stay away from these guys if you hate things like "best, fastest and greatest."

They're available starting this week as 4GB and... Read more...
The DRAM market isn't exactly raining down riches on memory makers at the moment, but apparently there's still money to be made, and not always on the home consumer side.

MicroSDHC cards are tiny. No one needed to tell you that. They're mostly used in cellphones, but recently they have been both sluggish and hard to find. SanDisk has a Class 2 32GB microSDHC, but it's one of the slower options out there. Now, Kingston is offering an alternative. 32GB is still the maximum on the market for microSDHC, but the big advantage to this new card is the Class 4 speed rating. That means that it can provide a 4MB/sec. minimum data transfer rate, which should make your Android phone feel quite a bit faster if accessing material frequently on the card. It's expected to start shipping tomorrow, and it'll be capable of storing nearly 29,000 photos, over 6,000 songs and more... Read more...

"Mobile phones are about... Read more...

Every year, the largest computer exhibition in Asia is held in Taipei, Taiwan over the course of five days. Computex is huge, and spans several buildings throughout the city. Only CeBIT, held in Germany, can claim to attract more visitors and businesses to their event. But it makes sense that Computex has the pull that it does, since many companies have R&D and production fabs located in Taiwan. So naturally, the event draws thousands of IT analysts and tech journalists in order to report on the latest and greatest of the computer industry. Taipei 101 - Computex Mecca Although we previously covered several hot topics from Computex, there is still a lot to talk about. A few days ago,... Read more...
