Most digital libraries flourishing and ubiquitous connectivity spreading, having access to our personal data and media wherever we are is looking all the more appealing.

Clickfree C2 backup drives get scheduling, hardware encryption, more

We’ve a soft spot for Clickfree‘s straightforward backup drives, ever since playing with some of the early hardware back in March and discovering it was simple enough even to get a lazy SlashGear editor (i.e. me) to regularly backup.  Now Clickfree are back with their next-gen drives, the C2 series.  As well as basic usability improvements – there’s now an attached USB cable that tucks away in a cut-out on the back, meaning forgetting the cord is no longer a valid excuse – the Clickfree C2 also adds in some more advanced functionality.

Corsair 128GB Flash Voyager GT: pointlessly fast?

Corsair 128GB Flash Voyager GT: pointlessly fast?

Corsair's new 128GB Flash Voyager GT thumb-drive is, the company claims, so speedy that its throughput is effectively limited by the capacity of a USB 2.0 port.  That either means that USB 3.0 can't come quickly enough, or that Corsair's engineers basically wasted their time and could've slacked off in the latter stages of the Voyager GT's development.
