Posted in Gefen,USB by Nino Marchetti on October 10th, 2007

Gefen Wireless USB ExtenderHow would you like to be able to use select USB devices a good distance away from your computer? That’s the idea behind the new Gefen Wireless USB Extender, priced at around $400.

The Gefen Wireless USB Extender makes use of a sender/receiver system to wirelessly transmit USB 2.0 signals up to 100 feet away. Gefen says it’s an ideal solution for those in particular who don’t want to run USB cables around the area. It requires no installation of USB drivers and can reportedly deliver data at speeds up to 54 Mbps.

Deluo MouseGPS doubles as mouse, GPS receiver

Posted in Deluo,GPS,Mouse,USB by Reuben Drake on October 7th, 2007

Deluo MouseGPS combines a laptop USB mouse and GPS receiver into one deviceDeluo, the same company that recently brought us the Bluetooth GPS for smartphones, also has available the Deluo GPSMouse. As the name implies the GPSMouse combines a GPS receiver and a travel mouse into one product.

This 2 in1 gadget first works as a normal, USB-powered optical travel mouse with a lightweight design for taking with you on the go. It even has a retractable USB cord built-in to help keep it compact. In addition, through a flick of a switch on the bottom it instantly transforms into a GPS receiver connected to your computer through the same USB cable and offering positional assistance without having to have a separate device. The MouseGPS can also optionally come packaged with Microsoft Streets & Trips giving you both pointer and street navigation in one device. What we’d really love to see is the next version of this MouseGPS to be wireless Bluetooth as well.

Knicks cable holder organizes your cablesFinally I have found something that will forever change my life for the better. Behold the wonder that is the Knicks Cable Holder, a godsend if you’re like me and your desk or floor are covered with cables or, like me, you “hold” the not-being-used USB cables underneath a book or other weightier object.

The device is so simple yet I haven’t seen it for sale anywhere else: fasten the Knicks to a side of your desk or nearby piece of furniture and run your cables through it. When you need to unplug one, like a USB, the plug end won’t fall to the ground. That’s it. As I said, simple as can be but where have you been for all my life Knicks Cable Holder? My $11 is yours.

Ministry Of Sound micro system iPod dockThe MOSMC1319P by Ministry of Sound provides almost everything you’d want in a desktop music station. Twin speakers, disconnected from the control unit, provide a total of 20 Watts (2 x 10Watt RMS speakers) and kick out sounds from a number of sources. Hook up your iPod or inject tunes in MP3, WMA or WAV formats stored on a SD or MMC flash card or via USB device.

The micro station also includes an FM/MW PLL digital tuner for streaming radio and is compatible with all CD types and includes a 30-track programming feature. And as you’d expect these days the unit is controlled via a wireless remote.

Zip Zip Memory Brick 1GB USB drive

Posted in Flash Memory,Toys,USB by Darrin Olson on September 22nd, 2007

Zip Zip Memory Brick is a 1GB Flash memory USB Drive inside a plastic lego-type brickZip Zip Memory Bricks are small USB 2.0 Flash memory drives encased inside a Lego-type toy building brick. When the cap is on they appear like a normal toy brick, but pulling one half of the brick apart exposes the USB 2.0 connector. They come in colors of green, yellow, blue, red, black or white, much like Lego bricks do, and have a capacity of 1GB.

The Memory Bricks also have a lanyard attached to make them harder to lose and easier to identify should you happen to drop it into a pile of regular toy bricks. The company says you can stack memory bricks just like you would with regular toy bricks, but what would be cooler is if the memory would stack up as well!

Domo Drives

Domo USB Flash memory driveThat fuzzy brown square thing with the great white shark-like mouth is a character named Domo. Created by the marketing department of Japanese television station NHK back in 1998 to be their mascot, Domo became a viral phenomenon as internet users grafted the image as their forum icon.

Seeing their creation catch on to the zeitgeist, the TV station licensed out the rights and Domo products soon started appearing on Japanese store shelves. This fall a series of 26 two-minute short films featuring Domo and his cave-dwelling friends will begin appearing on Nicktoons suggesting that he’s about to really invade America’s cultural landscape.

Posted in Intel,News,USB,USB 3.0 by Chris Weber on September 18th, 2007

Intel and others form the USB 3.0 Promoter Group plan to provide 10x faster USB connectionsIntel along with HP, Microsoft Corporation, NEC Corporation, NXP Semiconductors and Texas Instruments Incorporated have announced the formation of the USB 3.0 Promoters Group with a goal of creating the next generation of USB interconnect for use with PC’s and other mobile and consumer gadgets.

As need for increased storage continues to grow along with larger file sizes, the need for a faster connection becomes increasingly important. The USB 3.0 will create a new standard that will be backwards compatible to support existing USB 2.0 and 1.1 connections while providing the ability to transfer data at 10 times the current speed available with USB 2.0.

Hungry for Memory

Fast food USB Flash memory driveHaving your own cool-looking memory stick is becoming as important to fashion as the way you dress. Producing a boring flash drive says you’re practical but pulling out a Darth Vader USB drive says “I brake for The Force.” What these four new USB drives say to your co-workers and friends is open for interpretation but they may have the side-effect of making those around you hungry.

Produced by Japan-based Green House, these 1GB USBs are made to resemble a cartoony style of staples of the American diet. As any medical expert will attest, a slice of pizza, hamburger, hot dog and a sub sandwich represent each of the four food groups that are so important in your nutritional requirements for proper junk food.

Connectland USB Electric Razor

Posted in USB by Matt on September 17th, 2007

Connectland USB Electric RazorSome things walk a thin line between useless and utility, and while I can think of a situation where a USB rechargeable razor would have been more convenient than a battery powered or car chargeable one, I can only think of one. So if you’re a student at a college like the one I used to hike near, and you needed to erase that 5 o’clock shadow before a night class after spending the day with your laptop studying the environment and wanted to fit your razor easily in your laptop case pouch, this might be useful.

The device’s robustness with respect to its ability to shave anything more than a 5 o’clock is suspect, and I question its durability and longevity. Suggested retail price is $19.95 but this thing is so gimmicky it seems like something you’d get as a door prize in a drawing at a sales convention.

Under the USB sea

Lili and Oscar USB hub and webcamThere are two classifications of cute gadgets: the “Awwwww!” group and the “It’s Hello Kitty so it must be destroyed” group. We feel that United Pepper’s Lili and Oscar fall into the first category and so they should be allowed a place into our homes and hearts (but we will keep the flamethrower close by in case something Hello Kitty should surface.) Awwwww!

Lili is the five-legged octopus lass and Oscar is the starfish-shaped guy. Explained in practical terms, the deep sea dame is a funky designed 1.3-megapixel webcam with microphone while the male marine invertebrate is a four-port USB 2.0 hub (of similar funkyness.) They are both made from environmentally friendly materials such as cotton and sand and both of their bodies are constructed from Kapok, a tree fiber that is to the tropics what cotton is to America’s south.
