Targus Folding Speaker System for iPod

Targus launched this ultra portable, yet powerful iPod speaker system, AEM0702AP, for music on the go.  The speaker system can be powered by a handful of AAA batteries or via USB power.

Why Targus hired a marketing firm who places their speakers in a pile of rocks with weeds sticking out is a complet mystery.  If these folks are trying to send the message of a lovely afternoon at the park, then grass, picnic basket and a couple glasses of wine should have been the props here. Maybe they are trying to convey the portable iPod speaker system will get you to “rock out.”  Doubt that. In either event, the Targus speakers will run you about $45 bucks plus a plane ticket to Korea. Source: AvingUSA. Continue Reading

FilterMyRSS – Mosaic – Contest – You Win

So exactly what IS going on here? Well, today I found my FilterMyRSS logo on an internet mosaic image [yes I run that site]. There must be a thousand websites which make up the mosaic. I think they found me through this site. Anyway, I spent a good 40 minutes trying to find my logo somewhere in the mosaic page. The FilterMyRSS logo looks like this: ..and somewhere in the crazy looking web mosaic is my logo. Here is a smaller pic of the mosaic: mosaic So the question becomes. Can you find the logo? I’m sure you have better things to do with your time, but I’ll reward you with a 2GB Flash Drive if you find it. Just send me the image with a circle around the location. If there happens to be more than one entry, I’ll do a random draw. I’ll keep this live for two weeks [July 10th] before updating the image with location. Good Luck! Continue Reading

New Star Wars Mimobots – Well Almost

star wars mimobot

Mimoco is on the verge of announcing another set of Star Wars Mimobot USB drives.  This next line is their Series 3 and Mimoco will be announcing new drives between now and July 23rd.  Mimoco is having a Star Wars Mimobot contest – you can enter here – so enter to win a free drive!  I did.  It’s a fun little guessing game. The Series 2 Mimobots are still available.  Maybe they aren’t as hot as we are led to believe (announcement of 2,000 available back in Nov ’07). Continue Reading

Flip Your Bit USB Utility To Make Local Drive

BootIt is a Lexar based utility to flip the Removable Media Bit setting of a USB drive.  What this means, is you can take a Lexar drive (and many other brands) and make it appear as a Local Drive on your PC rather than Removable Storage.

This is absolutely necessary if you are looking to partition your USB drive or try some trick hack like run your iTunes from a USB stick.

The RMB or Removable Media Bit is present on all flash drives, but whether the Lexar utility can flip it is something of trial and error.  Although it goes without saying…and I’ll say it anyway…the utility works with Lexar drives, everything else, use at your own risk.

Flip your bit BootIt is a freeware program.  Download it here.
