I bet just about everyone knows Sesame Street and has watched the show as a kid, with their kids, or has at least watched the Katy Perry YouTube video where she runs around with Elmo that was banned from the kids show over too much boobage. If you have a kido that is a big fan of some of the Sesame Street characters a new line of flash drives that look like the characters is now shipping.
Silicon Power has unveiled a couple new flash drives that have a pretty finish that will appeal to users that want a drive that looks good and works well. The new flash drives are limited edition and include the Touch 852 Snow Flake and the Luxmini 323 Sparkle. Both of the drives are rather girly looking and if you have a geeky gal in your life, they might make a good gift with the holidays fast approaching.
We first talked about the Keyport way back in 2007 when the thing debuted at $295. The Keyport is a large fob that can hold up to six keys for different needs inside. You can get keys for your car, house, locks, and all manner of other things that need keys.
Silicon Power has hoards of flash drives and other storage solutions in its line. The company has added a new product to its line of flash drives called the Unique 530. The flash drive is enclosed in a "green" silica gel material that is pliable and provides a "sporty" style according to the maker. I'm not sure the silica gel has a sporty look, but it should make the drive more rugged thanks to the rubbery nature of the material.
For a long time the wireless dongles that we needed for things like wireless keyboards and desktops were long and fat adapters that often blocked the surrounding USB ports. Thankfully manufacturers have started making those dongles so small you can plug them in and just leave them there. Flash drives today are mostly like those old wireless dongles.
