SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 30 2010

You sassafrass you, NOOKcolor! Last night we spoke about how NOOKcolor had been rooted and presented to you the final chapter in our "A Week With" reviews of that device, but what's this?! I snuck another one in on ya! A Week with NOOKcolor: The Missing Link – Viewing Manually Loaded Books and What a Root Means for the Future. Then there's news about how NOOKcolor saved B&N's butt financially this year, and the iPad responds with a magazine - it's got TRON on it!

SanDisk Fuze+ MP3 Players Announced, Available Now with New Design

SanDisks' Fuze line-up of Personal Media Players have managed to remain present on the market for awhile now, without ever bringing too much attention to themselves. They're what you might call the "minimal" PMP, with not much going for them in the features department. Fortunately, SanDisk have finally managed to update the PMPs, not only giving them the favorite "+" symbol now, but also making them attractive enough to give a second glance.

SanDisk’s 64GB SSD is Smaller Than a Postage Stamp

Even as devices get smaller and thinner, one of the things keeping them from getting too small or thin are the components inside. For example, memory. Despite the fact hard drives (HD) and solid state drives (SSD) are already pretty small, we need them to get smaller if we want even smaller gadgets and toys. We just didn't expect it to get this small. SanDisk has officially unveiled their new 64GB SSD, which is smaller than a postage stamp.
