USB Copy Protection vs. USB Encryption

There are some fundamental differences between USB copy protection and USB encryption to files on a flash drive.  I have seen many companies confuse and muddy the terminology between the two.  It’s time to clear things up and explain the difference. In short; USB copy protection secures a file or set of files so they cannot be copied – thus copy protection.  USB encryption scrambles the source files so they cannot be read unless you decrypt them.  Take a moment and think about this…there is a BIG difference.

USB encryption

Encryption is the process of scrambling files and data so they cannot be accessed unless a password or key is supplied to reassemble the content and put everything back together.  This process is known as decryption. The fundamental use for USB encryption is to protect files and data in the event the USB stick is lost or stolen. Where encryption and USB copy protection differ is with “encryption” once you have the password you can Continue Reading

Calvin Klein USB Sunglasses

Did I miss something?  Somehow we jumped from cheap knock off gadget sunglasses with USB to Calvin Klein doing expensive sunglasses with USB.  Have we been so bombarded with USB gadget crap, that now mainstream designers are jumping on board…thinking they are missing something?

USB sunglasses Calvin Klein

I think my theory is right.  Look at these Calvin Klein sunglasses that sport a 4GB detachable arm. A second theory could be this poor economy and now the big boys are reaching for just about anything.  Either way, it just seems wrong, even to a guy who likes USB stuff. BTW – Aren’t sunglass arms already flimsy enough?  Now we’ve got a detachable arm.  Just doesn’t seem right. Continue Reading

Atari 2600 USB Mass Storage Device

A dude named Robotic Evil introduced a new version of his Atari USB case collection.  This time an Atari 2600 cartridge.  Bulky in design, but cool in style the USB Atari case is getting 2GB of inserted flash memory.

Given the size of the cartridge, it might be more appropriate to stuff a Western Digital Passport USB hard drive in there and really make some good use of the space. I also think he could tip the scale of coolness with a retractable USB cable rather than the clunky one attached. However; kudos to Robotic Evil for even thinking it up in the first place.

Happy 4th of July 2009

Happy 4th of July for those of you located in the USA.  I found this themed USA Flagged Flip MinoHD which you should consider if you don’t have one.  I just recently made the switch from MiniDV video tape to a solid state memory video recorder like this MinoHD.  It’s so much nicer because there is no more transfer of analog to digital process.

With the USB Flip MinoHD you just connect via USB and start downloading your video.  This translates into doing Continue Reading
