If you're a gadget-head like me, you've probably juggled your fair share of memory cards. My digital camera takes an SD card, my cell phone takes a miniSD card, and my friends' cell phones take microSD cards. Obviously, this makes sharing media between the devices a bit of a pain. Sure, miniSD cards usually come with SD adapters, and microSD cards usually come with miniSD or SD adapters, but the whole adapter-swapping dance makes almost makes moving data not worth it.
It's hard to believe, but there was actually a time when gold USB drives were a rare commodity. Now, it seems like a rare week when we don't see one. But that, of course, won't stop us from rolling another one out.
And how can we resist, given the bargains that are to be had these days? The latest model from Israel's E-Jewel, for example, is a 14k specimen that holds 4GB of data for a mere $2,000, according to Coolest-Gadgets. That's a third less than the $3,500 key we cited only a … Read more
It's not uncommon to see USB drives that look like they belong in a jewelry case, which makes their prices somewhat less outrageous because they can at least do double duty as a pendant or necklace. But then there are other storage keys whose main function seems to be wasting money.
This gold USB drive falls into the latter category, to the tune of $2,800 or $3,500. The price depends on whether you order it with diamonds, as pictured here, and in 14k or 18k gold. Decisions, decisions.

Due to a combination of aging and parental amnesia, we've often noted our appreciation for anything that improves our failing memory. (At least, we think we have.) So even though this device may have been intended mostly for the elderly--we're not there yet, thank you very much--it's something that just about anyone could use.
"MedSignals" is a pill container that automatically keeps track of when you take your medication, beeping when it's time for a dose and making note of each time a lid is opened to avoid duplication, according to Medgadget. The portable … Read more
According to a report in EE Times, the software maker has been privately circulating a white paper that claims errors from standard memory are now among the top 10 causes for system crashes.
The issue was discussed at last week's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in Los Angeles, though the EE Times report said memory chip makers and computer manufacturers were not necessarily all in agreement about … Read more
Sorry, Caroline, it's not a real toaster. At least, we don't think it would be a good idea to try to cram an English muffin into one of its slots, much less one that requires delicate handling for a skull-and-crossbones branding.
What it is, however, is a clever design and marketing ploy for a 27-in-1 memory card reader by Boynq. Technabob says the "Toastit" is a USB flash memory reader that will work with Windows and Mac machines. Despite its decidedly utilitarian function, the $30 Toastit does look nice as an accent for the desktop, if … Read more
