Dress Up Your HHD Dock Station

The Data Tray from Brando is their most recent gadget to dress up a HHD dock station and give more functionality than just a dock. The data tray includes additional slots to house a 4 port USB hub and 15 type card reader. The HHD sled will accomidate any 2.5″ hard drive along with all the power connections needed for integration. What I like most about this dock station is the sleek look Brando has put together for the enclosure. Makes the portable USB hub or card reader almost something you want to tote around.

The advantage with this system is easily swapping out one of two 2.5 hard drives to hot swap in a USB hub or card reader for quick connection for data transfer. Given all the flexibility this system has to offer you could pick up two – one for work, one for home – at just $69 each.

Canned Card Reader & USB Hub

I’ve often thought of what shape [not] would make the perfect card reader and USB hub, and I must admit the idea of fitting all this into a can never crossed my mind.  However, our friends at Brando did think outside the box, with this canned shaped card reader and USB hub.  The 3 port hub supports SD, SDHC, MMC, XD, CF and microSD flash memory cards.

Granted the design is unique and different but not designed for travel or someone looking for a card reader in a compact size.  The canned card reader does not include a power adapter and is USB powered, thus not the ideal unit for large or long data file transfers.  Read to know why. As for a marketing product, the card reader seems to be the ideal promotional product for a company like Coke or Pepsi or any other canned food or drink manufacturer. Continue Reading

iMono 80-in-1 High Speed Card Reader

Just last week I talked about the USB Fever 62-in-1 card reader thinking that was just about everything one would need.  Today iMono announces an 80-in-1 card reader.  It’s very likely either card reader will satisfy your every need, and I’ve still found a way for you to buy both [not that you would].

The USB Fever card reader is a 5.25 inch bay system making it ideal for a standard component on build out for numerous machines whereas the iMono 80-in-1 card reader is an external device making it an excellent sidekick for your laptop. I didn’t take the time to count out all 80 devices – which begs the questions:  Does anyone audit this stuff? In case you are asking, Continue Reading

Wireless USB Missile Launcher

On the heels of USB missile launcher with webcam we have the Wireless USB Missile Launcher from Dream Cheeky. I’m not sure how much value the wireless missile launcher brings to the table, other than distancing yourself another 15 feet from the firing source, the webcam version with MSN software controls seems a little better.

None-the-less, if your boss doesn’t allow Instant Message software on your PC then roll in the Wireless USB Missile Launcher. At 15 feet distance, it would be easy enough to hide it behind a plant and fire “at will” from an office down the hall. Albeit a direct hit on the forehead of your boss would be funny enough, I don’t think Continue Reading
