RunCore is now shipping their netbook SSDs that we have been hearing about lately. The 1.8-inch Low Cost Zif PATA SSDs boast a maximum read rate of 230MB/sec and top write speed of 150MB/sec. These drives promise to boost computer performance over the traditional 1.8” HDD by more than 400 percent.
Upgrading is easy with the user-friendly onboard USB slave port that allows users to easily clone the drive with any off the shelf cloning software. Included with your purchase you will receive an Acronis True Image 15 day free trial to help port over your information. Unfortunately these drives won’t be coming in as cost effective as we had hoped.
The 1.8-inch Low Cost Zif PATA SSDs can be yours for $69.99 for 16GB, $119.99 for 32GB, $199.99 for 64GB and $389.99 for the 128GB version. If this just is not enough storage space for you, the hyper Speed 256GB 2.5” SATA SSD version that costs $699.99 will be released in February to fill your needs.
One week from now, the next-gen USB interface with full promises will make its run at CES 2009. The USB 3.0 version 1 enabled storage will get its first demo after a long 3 years in standardizing the new protocol. The demonstration will come from the Orange County based Symwave, who claimed to have achieved the World’s first USB 3.0 or Superspeed USB external storage solution, at CES 2009.
The past few months have really seen a lot of new ways to help the world go green if only to save money at the pumps. One way that people are making the attempt is by walking or riding a bike to work. Not all of us are in the best shape to ride a bike to work, especially if you live in a place with several hills such as San Francisco.
LG have announced two new streaming content providers that users of their 2009 network Blu-ray players will be able to access. Both CinemaNow and YouTube have joined Netflix, which is the only media-on-demand provider currently accessible to users of the LG BD300. That means a choice from 14,000 pay-per-view CinemaNow titles from the major movie studios, broadcast and cable television shows (as well as more than 250 independent film titles and music videos from all major labels), together with unlimited access to YouTube's catalog.
We love this time of the year taking stock of newest and greatest displays get ready for CES 2009. LG for instance, has unveiled ultra high contrast with million-value rating Trumotion 480Hz panel and a 24-inch monitor for CES 2009, here’s another with two million to one contrast ratio LCD with World’s thinnest title to boost.
If your kids love scribbling on your walls, or you're an agoraphobic tagger who gets fed up of filling your house with paint fumes, the Glow Graffiti might be your salvation. Ostensibly a normal spray can, in actual fact you paint with UV light: the nozzle hides a UV LED (the batteries hide inside the can) and you can "paint" light onto the included UV-reactive sheet. Your artwork stays visible for around 30 seconds, then fades away.
If the lossless wireless sound offered by Sleek Audio's W-1 adapter appeals, but your budget doesn't exactly stretch to the $320 the company asks for a set of SA6 earphones and the wireless system, DigiFi's Digital Opera earphones may fit the bill. First announced back in May, up until now the earphones had only been available in Korea; now, Kleer themselves are offering them - together with other products using their lossless technology - in the US.
When your product is faced with competition you can either convince people the rivals aren't worth it, or that they're not really rivals at all. The slightly trickier latter route is that taken by RIM founder and co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, when CNET Asia asked him what threat he perceived to the BlackBerry range from netbooks. According to Lazaridis, handsets like the BlackBerry Storm are in fact netbooks; they're just smaller.
