USB Egg Cluster Moves Us Into Easter Preporations

It’s not even New Year’s Day and we are moving things along with prep for Easter.  Today I received info on a USB egg cluster from GiftWhole Electronics.

USB CD Carousel Aids in Organizational Skills

I’ve got at least four different piles of CDs and DVDs around the house.  I just can’t find a happy medium.  I’ve tried the DVD case with matching DVD cover clipped out.  I’ve tried the library with the discs still in the jewel case, but nothing satisfies my ideal organizational methods. However, Skymall, that gadget company we are forced to fall in love with, has a possible solution.  The USB CD Carousel is just what this doctor ordered.  It holds 150 discs and through included software and USB cable you can database your entire collection, and select a given CD by simply entering keywords or title.  Within seconds the correct CD or DVD is popped out ready for viewing.

What’s better, is the USB CD Carousel can also be used in standalone mode.  You can also use the included software to manage multiple CD carousels…after all, who only has 150 discs these days? Continue Reading

USB Drive Ejector Software

I reported a while back on a product called Unlocker if you are having problems unlocking your USB drive from a Windows operating system. Today I bring you another package which does the same function; however, is easier to use. USB Drive Ejector is a simple utility which lists all USB devices on your buss and with a double click – you can unlock and eject the device.

This is a great tool to have in case you’ve ran into:
  1. Cannot delete file, access denied
  2. Sharing violation
  3. Source destination file in use
  4. File is in use by another program, etc.
However, you should always proceed with caution when a stubborn drive wont eject. Sometimes…and I mean sometimes…there are reasons. Such as virus software scanning the memory device or Windows writing to the device in cache memory. These examples are far and few between so a couple of common sense activities might be in order, such as Continue Reading

Photoshop Tutorial on Making Animated USB Drive

If you have a few minutes and want to sharpen some Photoshop skills you can run through this tutorial on how to create a USB drive. I for one will definitely do this, as my USB Forum link needs an updated look. This Photoshop tutorial would also be a good project for anyone running a gizmo or gadget website to create some stock images for those random posts. Before you make the jump, the tutorial uses 19 steps to create the image below.

However, I think a little more time is needed to make the object more proportional and some attention to shadows would also help. But if you are in a pinch and need something quick – this will work. Jump to Photoshop tutorial Continue Reading

No, I’m not a “player” but the iPlayer is a nice piece of technology for cocktail conversations. The iPlayer is a standalone video player which can run content from a number of different flash media cards or USB drives. In addition, the iPlayer may be connected to either your TV or monitor. The iPlayer has the ability to quickly and easily share photos, music and movies on your TV or monitor.


Sure, for the home user this might not be the ideal USB gadget for viewing your favorite content, BUT if you are running a business and doing trade shows the iPlayer is clearly worth a second look. The iPlayer makes it easy to set up a video displays without needing a PC or TV. With the combination of the iPlayer and monitor (flat screen I’d assume) you could have a slick looking trade show presentation in little time. Continue Reading
