If you've bought a laptop recently, chances are good it has an integrated SDHC flash memory card reader. Today, the SDHC standard is pretty commonly used in various devices including digital cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, and many other devices. By integrating SDHC card readers into laptops, manufacturers have made the standard even more convenient to use since you don't have to carry an external reader to download and upload files from a memory card. Like all other technologies however, SDHC is in the process of being replaced by a newer, faster standard called SDXC. The SDXC standard was announced earlier this year but is not expected to replace SDHC until sometime in 2010. The new standard... Read more...
Ah, memory cards. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Actually, it's pretty easy to live with them, but going about one's life without losing any is the tough part. In order to provide a few options for those in need of more on-hand storage, Lexar Media is expanding its gaming line with Memory Stick Micro (M2) and Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) cards. The company is pushing these as cards tailor made for gamers, but in reality, they're just memory cards with fancy labels. They're available in 4GB and 8GB sizes, and while MSRPs aren't readily available, we suspect these will be in stores before the holidays.

We've always heard that wherever there's a will, there's a way.

Finally, the 8GB SDHC card looks to add storage to Nintendo's DSi system. Honestly,... Read more...
While Sony has made strides to ditch its proprietary ways in some aspects, it certainly has more work to do in others. Take the memory card game for example. Most everyone these days uses a camera that supports either SD/SDHC or CF (CompactFlash). You'd probably have to search pretty hard to find anyone using xD, Memory Stick Pro or any other off-the-wall format.That said, Sony's still a believe in the MSPro and MSPro Duo formats, as it has today introduced a new pair of flash cards for those who think 16GB cards are simply for suckers. The two cards offer the most capacity of any Sony-made flash card (32GB), as the 32GB PRO-HG Duo HX and 32GB PRO Duo models provide ample storage for those with... Read more...
