This strange, strange looking device actually looks more sophisticated than it actually is. It's not a traditional media streamer; rather, it's a Wireless USB based product that simply creates a wireless link between your PC and your television. This obviously has pros and cons, but Veebeam is hoping you pay more attention to the former. Unlike a Roku box, which is wired directly to your HDTV and received content from the Internet, the Veebeam box relies on your PC's web browser to stream content, and then it sends that information wirelessly to your television over the Wireless USB protocol. It's nice for those who simply need to stream everything, but Wireless USB isn't known for having an... Read more...
DisplayLink will be showing off its new SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) chip platform for next generation displays, docking stations and other integrated devices at the Intel Developer Forum next week. The new DL-3000 and DL-1000 series DisplayLink single-chip family features integrated display and networking connectivity and high performance audio and HD video support. It also has third generation DisplayLink adaptive real-time compression technology that dynamically manages bandwidth and takes advantage of bi-directional throughput of SuperSpeed USB. This enables multiple full HD videos, high resolution graphics, and networking data to be processed simultaneously. Products with the new DisplayLink... Read more...
Lenovo is known for a few things. Namely, the ThinkPad, the IdeaPad and the ThinkCentre lines of computers. Lenovo notebooks in particular are used heavily in businesses, as their rugged frames and iconic tracking point. But here's something you probably don't think about: the power adapter that ships with Lenovo's ThinkPad line. It's just a standard, black power adapter. Nothing too special about it. But this new Power Hub is something special. And it's something that we wish all power adapters came with, particularly ultraportable machines that only have one or two USB ports. The Power Hub doesn't look too different than a standard ThinkPad power adapter, but there are two main differences... Read more...
Small is good. Fast is good. Small and fast is better. That's what LaCie is offering with their newest hard drives, which are being listed as the world's smallest mobile (and desktop) USB 3.0 hard drives on the market. The new Minimus and LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 both connect at far faster speeds than traditional USB 2.0 units, and they're both amongst the smallest in their class. Both drives are wrapped in brushed aluminum cases, and both ship with the company's Software Suite in order to setup backups on Mac or PC. The pair also ships with 10GB of Wuala Online Storage for times when you need to remotely access critical files, but they each serve very different markets. The Rikiki USB 3.0 is available...

For a moment there, we were beginning to think that Super Talent had taken their foot off of the pedal, but really, they were just saving up a few releases to announce all at once. The company made famous for producing numerous SSD options when the world had none is now making a name for themselves in the flash drive sector, with four new USB 3.0 flash drives shipping to those who can't get enough performance in their lives. The new USB 3.0 Express RAM Cache drive is the headline device, which is available in 32GB and 64GB sizes. It implements a DRAM caching system to boost small block random performance by up to 300%, so performance junkies will surely take notice. Super Talent claims that this... Read more...
Size matters, does it not? And when you're talking about storage capacity, you want that size to be large. When you're talking about the size of your electronics, particularly portable ones, you want that size to be small. LaCie has delivered on both fronts with their new MosKeyto Flash Drive, a cleverly named device that represents one of the smallest USB drives the world has ever seen. The company calls this "a new breed" of USB key, as this one will have to be kept on your key ring if you hope to ever keep track of it. It measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, and it's made in capacities as high as 16GB. That also includes an extra 4GB of Wuala Secure Online storage. LaCie even states... Read more...
Sprint is continuing to broaden its portfolio of 3G and 4G mobile broadband devices. Recently, the wireless carrier added the Sprint 3G/4G USB U600. This small USB drive delivers 4G speeds (where available) and also works on the carrier's 3G network. The Sprint 3G/4G USB U600 will connect automatically to Sprint's network. The USB stick even has LEDs to let you know if you've made a 3G or 4G connection. ADVANCED FEATURES: Supports Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Mac OS 10.5, 10.6 with Intel Easy installation of Sprint SmartView software on a CD for Windows and Mac OS External antenna ports available for both 3G and 4G Rotating USB connector Supports Hands-Free Activation via OMA-DM 3G...

You have to be more careful than ever when it comes to sticking things into little holes. Get your mind out of the gutter, we're obviously talking about plugging electronic gadgets into USB ports, this being HotHardware and not Hot_____ (fill in the blank). That's the word from PandaLabs, which claims that 25 percent of new worms wiggling into the wild are specifically designed to spread through USB storage devices, where they can then copy themselves to a whole host of mobile hardware, like cell phones, DVDs, MP3 players, and more. "At present, much of the malware in circulation has been designed to distribute through these devices," explains Luis Corrons, Technical Director of PandaLabs. "Not... Read more...
Boot drives. Pretty simple to understand, right? It's a hard drive or solid state drive (usually), internal or external, used to boot up into a given operating system. Well, that used to be the definition. Now, mentioning "boot drive" takes on an entirely new meaning. Dr. Martens, which is a boot company that has been around for years and years, just celebrated their 50th. In order to really revel in their achievement, they could have just produced a new shoe. But instead, they did something different. Very different. They produced a USB drive, and as you might guess, it's a "boot drive" in more ways than one. Not only can this USB flash drive act as a boot drive for your computer, but it's also... Read more...
With LTE coming soon from Verizon Wireless, Sprint and Clear are both going on a full-out assault to get WiMAX into as many hands as possible while they still have an edge on time. On nearly a weekly basis now, we're seeing many new 4G markets introduced and even more 4G hardware to choose from. Sprint has just this week issued a new 4G USB modem (works with 4G only), in the U1901. This dongle is a small, simplistic device that works with Windows 7, Vista, XP and OS X (10.5 and 10.6), and when you're in a 4G zone it can provide throughput of up to 10x faster than Sprint 3G. The company suggests that this modem is ideal for "companies wanting to deliver high-bandwidth solutions to workers on-the-go... Read more...
It's about time! USB 3.0 is clearly the future of USB. This isn't like the HD DVD / Blu-ray war, where there was actually a battle to be fought before consumers knew which would be moving forward. With USB, we know that 3.0 is the future, but so few machines support it. Even higher-end machines, like the new iMac, MacBook Pro, Dell, HP and Lenovo machines all are stuck with USB 2.0 (for the most part), but iBUYPOWER is breaking the mold. Some computer makers have already decided to add USB 3.0 to select machines, but iBUYPOWER is offering USB 3.0 on all of their desktops at no extra charge. We can't say how thrilled we are to finally see a company just commit to the future. Of course, it makes... Read more...
Ask any budding secret agent and he'll tell you that toting around confidential plans for world domination is a major drag. It's not the morality of the 'take over the world' thing that has him down, but what to do with the data should he get caught. In a pinch, he can try swallowing his USB thumb drive, but his nemesis and his cronies will just extract it anyway, and that's not going to be fun for anyone. This is where MXI Security comes in, the self-appointed "leader in superior managed portable security solutions." One of the company's claim to fame is its Stealth line of secure USB flash drives, which is now offered in 64GB flavor. So who exactly needs 64GB of secure data on the go? Government... Read more...
The media streaming dongle that the world has been waiting for since CES 2010 is finally available to pre-order. After undergoing a slight design change and suffering from a minor delay, Infinitec's "IUM" (infinite memory device) is now scheduled to ship globally by the end of this month. For those who pre-order now at $129, free shipping will be included. Furthermore, Infinitec is claiming that their IUM is the world's first dual Wi-Fi product for consumers, which gives it the ability to connect to two separate WiFi networks simultaneously. This will allow the user of the IUM to connect their computer's WiFi to the IUM without losing their internet connection. In essence the IUM will connect... Read more...
Apple has long since resisted the urge to add SSDs to their desktops, and with the introduction of the company's newest iMac and Mac Pro, that mindset changed. And you know when Apple starts adopting SSDs in their desktops, SSDs are as close to mainstream as they're apt to be for the next year or two. Super Talent has been playing in the solid state space for some time now, and while it's always entertaining to see a new capacity or speed record broken, the company is taking innovation to another level with their new UltraDrive MX. Unlike most SSDs, this new device has a dual interface that makes upgrading even easier, and it also makes the drive itself entirely more flexible. The UltraDrive... Read more...
