IOGEAR launches pair of new memory card readers

IOGEAR GFR281 Memory Card ReaderNot too long ago my memory card reader died on me. Several people I know asked me why exactly I bothered with a memory card reader when I can just connect my DSLR/phone/MP3 player directly to my computer. The answer is that with a memory card reader I don’t have to remember to turn the camera or device back off.

Every time I hook my Nikon D80 up to my computer I tend to forget it’s on and the next time I need it my battery is dead. IOGEAR announced a couple of new card readers today that are exactly what I need to replace my dead one. The GFR209 is a 12-in-1 Pocket Card reader/Writer that retails for $11.95. The GFR 209 can read and write to SD, miniSD, MMC, Memory Stick, and MS Duo cards. It’s also tiny and very portable at only 2.5-inches long and under 1-inch deep.

IOGEAR Mobile Digital Scribe
Back when I had a real job I often wanted to take notes that I could store on my computer without actually having to take my computer with me to a meeting. I also had to endure the irritated looks my lab partner gave me when I was typing away on my notebook during class in college. IOGEAR has announced just the ticket for the times when you don’t want to use your computer to take notes, but want to be able to get the notes into your computer to store.

IOGEAR announced today its new Mobile Digital Scribe that allows handwritten notes to be written on standard paper using standard ink from an included pen. In fact IOGEAR says that the GPEN200N can capture handwritten information from any surface. The handwritten notes are stored in the ultrasonic transmitter and a special infrared pen that uses normal ink is required for the system to operate. The pen is included with the system.
