Titan the Unequivocal Indestructible Flash Drive

So we’ve seen UFDs that withstand 2,000 pounds of weight, we’ve seen underwater flash drives and we’ve seen rugged flash drives, but what about all of that, plus the security of anti-shock and anti-static? After all, UFDs are most susceptible to static electricity which is a leading factor in failing flash drives. Slava Tyukalov answered this call with his highly customized and durable flash drive line specifically designed to address these types of issues, the Titan.
Each Titan is hand made with the highest quality materials and the greatest level of care. Here’s the run down: Each flash drive starts with a graphite/aluminum composite metal combination to create a light yet very durable enclosure, this type of mixture is something you’d see in NASA products or prototypes, next coat the UFD with Continue Reading

The Blade PMP Player from MPMan

So MPMan boldly states they are the creators of portable MP3 players and most recent entry into the market is the Blade PMP. In a few, we’ll look into the MP3 claim but for now lets look at the Blade.

Pick Up Girls With Your BMW MP3 Watch

Late last night I stumbled upon the BMW MP3 watch. It amazed me the product was still available on BMW’s website. This product was at the top-of-it’s game maybe 3 years ago when flash memory was expensive and 256MB of space seemed like a lot. Since then, MP3 watches have become a pure novelty item.

Just to make sure I wasn’t off base, I contacted my buddy Darren, who is also a proud BMW owner, and asked for his thoughts:
“If I was trying to impress a girl, I’m not sure if she’d be impressed or turned off by headphones connected to my watch.”
Enough said. Continue Reading

Wireless Digital Media Player or Wireless DMP

Steaming audio and podcasts are today’s hype on social media but when will this convenient and idealistic technology make it into homes and TVs via wireless channel for video. At least in the sense of built in technology rather then home-brew solutions.
