Men’s Watch, USB Cigarette Lighter, Rechargeable

I love how the description for a “cigarette” lighter watch includes the words “environmentally friendly.”  So the ligher doesn’t use gas, I get it, but isn’t smoking the cigarette worse?

Anyway, if you smoke and like to keep time, this product is for you.

The watch tells time, but the three smaller dials are for esthetics only.

There is a $40 dollar version that is digital.  The watch type options are listed on the product page.

USB4, The Royalty Free Thunderbolt from Intel

In the news, Intel has given their specification for its high-speed Thunderbolt technology to the USB-IF implementers forum.  This is the group which creates and manages USB technology.

The USB4 specification will follow the current USB 3.2 specification, yet an exact date of release has not been defined.

USB4 will double the bandwidth of USB 3.2 and provide transfer rates at a theoretical maximum of 40Gb/s.

USB4 will also enable the use of multiple data and display protocols simultaneously.  This implies you will be able to transfer data, run your monitor and power your devices through a single connection.

TiSTICK – The Over Kill USB Flash Drive

The TiSTICK is currently available on Kickstarter. Here is your summary update if interested:

The flash drive has a titanium case, made of very durable material, has 256AES hardware encryption, available in several large GB capacities and is getting near full funding on Kickstarter.

We like the shape, we like the magnet on the tail of the drive, and we like the look. Great marketing and certainly sets itself apart from the rest of the “durable” flash drives. So well done Jörg Lingg.

In our humble opinion a bit over kill, but that is only our opinion. The following drive is made of aluminum, has been ran over multiple times with a car, and still works fine with it’s Alcor controller with encryption functionality.

Double AA Rechargeable USB Battery – 4 Pack

These are 1450mAh batteries that are rechargeable via standard USB port.

This is the better way digital devices should be designed.  I am not a fan of, for example, my portable speaker going south because the device can no longer hold a charge.  I’d much rather have my portable speaker take batteries which I can replace, than my device going dead and I have to throw it away.

As I type this, the four pack of double AA batteries are going for $35.  So just under $10 per battery. 

The company claims they will take 500 charges.  Assuming they have over stated that statistic, even at 250 charges… it’s a smart move.

They also claim the AA battery will last 2 to 3 times longer than a normal battery.  Probably a direct link to the 1.2V NiMH nickel metal hydride cell technology.

EaseUS Data Recovery Software – Free

It’s been a hard day because your USB stick or SD card with important content doesn’t have the file you are looking for. Somehow, maybe your kid, formatted the device and what you are looking for is no longer there.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get some recovery software to find that file?

Better yet, wouldn’t it be nice to have a free download to show you what files can be seen… and then you can decide to buy the software? I mean, your day has already been bad enough, why spend money for a shot in the dark?

EaseUS Data Recovery software is just what you need. Today is a review of this software. Our first and last impression, it’s good stuff!

Here is the “Readers Digest” version of the data recovery software review. Oh, and if you’re a millennial who doesn’t know what “Readers Digest” is, it was a small magazine that would provide short stories and reviews and jokes. Nothing long, everything quick and to the point.

The EaseUS Data Recovery software is free for download with upgrade options.

The fee download gives you the ability to recover up-to one GB of data. The types of situations the free software is best used for is when the file was deleted or the file was formatted off the drive.
