Up your PS4 storage to 6TB with Nyko’s Data Bank

Up your PS4 storage to 6TB with Nyko’s Data Bank

When the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles launched back in 2013, their built-in 500GB of storage was impressive and incredibly useful. But now, after a year and a half of downloading games as opposed to buying discs, those hard drives are filling up fast. Both Microsoft and Sony know this, as a 1TB Xbox One model was just announced, and the same is expected of PS4 in an announcement at E3 next week. But why stop at only 1TB? Instead, you can upgrade your PS4 to 6TB of storage with Nyko's new Data Bank accessory.

Archos’ 256 GB tablet may no longer become reality

Archos’ 256 GB tablet may no longer become reality

At MWC last March, Archos made two rather bold announcements. The first as a Fusion Storage technology that would seamlessly merge both internal and external microSD storage as a single unified storage. The second was a tablet that would be boasting 256 GB of internal storage alone, plus a 128 GB capacity expansion. At least one of those won't be seeing the light of day, though both might actually be stillborn. A French news site is reporting that the 256 GB Archos 94 Magnus is being scrapped even before it can hit the shelves.

Waterproof 8GB Sony Xperia M4 Aqua isn’t bloatware-proof

Waterproof 8GB Sony Xperia M4 Aqua isn’t bloatware-proof

It has just been two months since Sony announced its latest waterproof mid-range beauty and now it is gaining some notoriety. At least the 8 GB version of Xperia M4 Aqua. Xperia Blog reports how Sony has, intentionally or not, practically crippled the more affordable model of the two versions, leaving less than 2 GB of usable storage space out of the 8 GB total storage found inside. And the culprit? Nothing less than the smartphone user's favorite source of headache: pre-installed apps, a.k.a. bloatware.

1TB Xbox One Halo MCC bundle spotted briefly on Amazon

1TB Xbox One Halo MCC bundle spotted briefly on Amazon

Monkey see, monkey do, or something like that. It was just last week when keen eyes have spotted a PlayStation 4 at the FCC bearing a rather generous 1 TB of storage. Now, it's the Xbox One's turn to get such a leak. A product page on Amazon appeared, and quickly disappeared, showing a special Xbox One Halo: Master Chief Collection bundle that, yes, also included 1 TB of storage and the much leaked new wireless controller. And although the item has disappeared off the Internet, chances are we will get to see it again next week.

Android officially “adopts” external storage devices

Android officially “adopts” external storage devices

Google has been known to dislike the use of external storage on Android devices, which explains why none of the Nexus smartphones and tablets had a microSD card slot. Google's position is understandable from a software engineering point of view but clashed with popular consumer demand. In Android M, however, Google makes an almost complete U-turn and has found a compromise to the problem, finally providing an official way for users to move apps to removable storage. It has a strange name for it too, calling it "Adoptable Storage Devices".

Fixstars boats of a 6TB SSD only 2.5 inches small

Fixstars boats of a 6TB SSD only 2.5 inches small

Data storage is about to get insane. Just a few years ago, terabytes of storage was almost a dream or at least a very expensive reality. But now even the most expensive type, SSDs, are getting oodles of them. But while we have indeed seen SSDs measuring 4 TB or more, Fixstars claims it just one upped the industry. At least for now. The 6 TB of its upcoming SSD-6000M might not sound that much in the face of 8 TB drives, but it has one thing no other SSD can claim: a 2.5-inch size.

Flickr redesign brings new look, powerful new features

Flickr, Yahoo’s photo storage app and service, is reborn. Not only just rebranded or given a facelift, Flickr is downright new. And exciting. On all fronts — the web, mobile, and desktop — Flickr has a slew of new features, and a new look that may have it competing with popular photo-dump social sites like Instagram. With a full terabyte of storage, and features like bulk upload, better organization and snappier photo sharing, Flickr might be worth a second look if you’re not currently using it.

Samsung PRO Plus, EVO Plus memory cards ready for UHD content

Samsung PRO Plus, EVO Plus memory cards ready for UHD content

Our mobile devices are getting more and more capable, both in creating content as well as playing them, so it is only fitting that data storage should catch up to them as well. Samsung already unveiled its UHS 2.0 NAND storage used for internal memory, particularly in the Galaxy S6, and now it's turning its attention to external storage as well. Samsung is adding two new members to its SD and microSD card family, the PRO Plus and the EVO Plus, with the promise of smooth handling of UHD and FHD content.
