HP has first thin-client in notebook form

That’s right; you can now get a thin-client in a mobile form. It doesn’t have a hard drive per se, but rather a 1GB flash drive that can hold the Windows XPe OS and maybe a few other apps, likely just the ones necessary to access the remote apps.

Domino like Flash Drives

If I had to pick two qualities that I thought products needed to have in order to sell they would be: geek factor and necessity, in that order. These domino look-a-likes are actually USB flash drives and therefore possess both qualities.

New Kingston Flash Drives

New Kingston Flash Drives

Kingston was showing off 4 new flash drives, the one I was most impressed with is the HyperX one. I mean, their HyperX PC memory is impressive so I can only expect similar speeds from this flash drive, and it delivers with a write speed of 20MB/second and read speed that’s 10MB/second faster, this thing is built for ReadyBoost. You can get these drives for 74, 131, and 266 dollars in capacities of 2, 4, and 8 gigabytes respectively.

If the 2, 4, 8, and 16 gigabyte capacities weren’t large enough for you, you’ll be happy to know they’ve moved up on the binary scale to a new 32GB capacity. These flash drives are nearly impossible to destroy, they are element proof and have had all sorts of nasty things done to them in an effort to figure out just what the physical limits are.

CES 2008: Pinnacle Video Transfer removes the hassle of converting video formats

I don’t know about you, but I hate having to convert my videos to whatever format/dimensions/size the device I am trying to load them onto requires, so you better believe I am happy to hear about what Pinnacle is bringing to the table. You plug in this device, and your choice of iPod Video, iPod Nano 3rd edition, iPod Classic, PSP, or USB flash drive or hard drive and you can instantly start recording to whatever device you just plugged in.

Lenovo making Olympic USB drives

Lenovo making Olympic USB drives

Not much is known about these USB flash drives other than they are made by Lenovo, and have a similar design on them as the Lenovo Olympic laptops. Oh, and they look dumb, and cheap, and might contain lead, just kidding about that last one, sort of.

The laptops looked good, the “Cloud of Promise” as they call the swirly design was ingenious, and like I said, on the red-lidded laptop, it looked great. But this flash drive looks like it was made from a Coke can, so they should have stopped with the laptops.

Kanguru USB Duplicator

Kanguru USB Duplicator

I see two possible uses for the Kanguru USB Duplicator… The first involves spies; the second involves making a tedious job go faster. While I have high hopes for the former I know the latter will be it’s path.
