Install iPhone Apps Over USB

Could this be a threat to the Apples iTunes store?  The idea is loading up your applications via USB cable, rather than via iTunes store. This type of app installer would eliminate the need for an iTunes app store. It seems there are several non-Apple sponsored app stores popping up which is the first step to threaten iTunes…but a direct load via USB cable would even threaten the unofficial app stores.

LaCie iamaKey In The Wild

The blogosphere has been talking quite a bit about the new LaCie USB key chains, in fact, I did a post just the other day about them.  Well, yesterday LaCie sent GetUSB.info the iamaKey model.  Here she is in the wild.

The iamaKey is a beautiful drive.  Extremely solid, heavy and doesn’t scratch easily.  LaCie put a lot of effort into the design and material selection to make one outstanding drive.  I’ve used dozens of flash keys  and most end up failing and in the trash.  With the durability I see here, the iamaKey will last. So here’s the deal…I’m going to keep the iamaKey on my keychain until it breaks.  I use USB sticks daily so there will be frequent tests.  I’ve also been known to forget my keys in my pants, which ultimately ends up in the wash…so there are many stress test opportunities. I’ll report back when the device fails, but don’t expect an update anytime soon. Continue Reading

USB Cable Gets Hitched With SD Technology

The desk drawer to my left is full of card readers, USB sticks, cables etc.  It’s just too much.  Last week Brando sent me an email with their latest idea to reduce the clutter and global waste of all these connection devices.  It was a USB cable with an SD card reader built; in-line. Take away the fact that it’s ANOTHER cable I will have, the idea of putting connectors in-line a USB cable is brilliant.

There are two versions to you can buy, but really only one is needed.  Brando offers the full size SD card reader and the microSD card reader version.  Simply buy the full SD card version and get a microSD adapter and you are set. Continue Reading
