We’ve seen many keylogger devices on the market and DeviceLock just updated their software to deflect keylogger devices and their unethical owners. Since off loading data via USB is a huge risk, DeviceLock has been providing enterprise software solutions for many years. Today SmartLine announced their hardware keylogger lock-out.
David Wilson has been hard at work at making sure the rest of us…well…don’t work. He’s now updated a driver to run the USB missile launcher from a Mac. From what David has published this will work on all Dream Cheeky products (USB Circus Cannon) along with some other brands.
This post is like your twice removed Aunt Helen, although not USB specific it does ultimately effect USB as this kick ass Gemini II copper cooling system cools, not only your core processor, but surrounding components as well. So what are we looking at anyway?
Well 6 copper heat pipes designed for superior cooling for starts. Fan bracket top plate for mounting two monster 120mm fans which are all built on a huge, high-tech aluminum fin chassis for excellent heat dissipation. Although no pricing I’m positive
U3 announced a bug prevents some applications from running on Vista. The problem occurs when your Vista computer has one or more non-U3 mass storage devices attached. A good example would be your PC having a card reader connected while trying to launch a U3 drive. Not all hope is lost as the error [message: #0x80040210 (DAPI_E_COMM_FAIL)] only occurs when that non-U3 device is connected with a drive letter assigned yet no media in the device.
So you read in the Xbox manual you can use it for playing music, viewing photo’s or playing videos if you’d like.Â BUT, you’re either killing yourself transfering the data to your Xbox or too lazy to copy it from UFD to Xbox.Â Not to worry, the 360 wireless adaptor has-got-your-back.Â For a very limited time and only one buy per address, get the Xbox 360 wireless network adaptor for under $80.
Card readers are a dime-a-dozen but with newer cards such as SDHC and miniSDHC you could be missing what you really need. The Transcend RDM2 has a boat-load of connectivity and as I write this, the most diverse card reader available.
The multi-card reader is lightening fast for data transfer when using SD, miniSD, Compact Flash, Microdrive, Multimedia Card, Memory Stick new generation Secure Digital cards and all important SDHC and miniSDHC. Now if you didn’t know the SDHC and miniSDHC are not backward compatible so although they look like the form-factor of SD and miniSD, they don’t work like them.
USB refined fashion designs continue to rise in popularity. Take the TranscendV90 for example, the new Transcend UFD is coated with mother-of-pearl and stylish metal chassis makes for one trendy device. Inspired by USB UFDs becoming fashion accessories the V90 is also high tech.
Bundled with the JetFlash Elite software there are eight valuable functions; auto login, PC lock, favorites, secret zip, e-mail, data backup, My JetFlash and online update. Hmm…sounds close to U3, lets call JetFlash Elite U2.
Readyboost is add-on memory for your Windows Vista operating system. With Readyboost one may use flash memory devices such as USB flash drives to improve PC performance. USB Readyboost allows increased PC performance without having to install additional memory on the motherboard, but rather externally via USB port.
The newly inserted memory serves as additional cache location for RAM – or memory which the computer can access faster then a system hard drive. The Windows Vista OS will allow the user to secure the flash memory space so that other tasks cannot use that memory, for example, once a flash drive has been assigned as the Readyboost flash drive you can no longer use that device to save files or play music or retrieve videos and pictures.
RoadBox is your black box for cars.
So you got in an accident; you could say wrong place at the wrong time.Â To make matters worse, the “other guy” is over exaggerating her injuries and to top it off, YOU didn’t even cause the accident. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a video to fall back on?Â With RoadBox let the video do the talking so you can relax knowing the truth is just a click away.
PLK Technology, a company owned by Hyundai Motor Company, introduces the RoadBox. It’s a video capture device and software analysis tool for car accidents. How it works:
