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

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

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

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.
