Portable Paper Shredder

Posted in Office Gadgets,USB by Darrin Olson on June 5th, 2007

Portable paper shredder that runs off of batteries or USB powerHere’s a USB-powered gadget that looks fairly practical for those that work on the road. This portable paper shredder runs off of either 4 AA batteries or can be powered from the USB port of your computer making it a handy device for use visiting clients or in the hotel room.

Weighing only about 12 ounces this device works great to shred any documents or receipts with personal information on them instead of trying to tear them to bits only to end up taking the pieces with you when you go anyway. I’m guessing it can handle not much more than one sheet of paper at a time, and I don’t think you’ll be shredding any credit cards but USB power surely must be better than hamster power.

USB SurfdriveThe USB SurfDrive sounds like it might be some cool storage gadget that automatically saves information or settings while surfing the internet, but the cool part of this USB thumb drive lies in its surfboard shape more than its functionality.

There are USB flash drives available for the geek in just about everyone, and now even for the surfers, or at least the hodad’s. So, if you’re like me and wish you could be standing on the beach next to your cool car and a surf board stuck in the sand, maybe propping this little SurfDrive up against your desktop speakers will be almost as good? Maybe not…

The USB SurfDrive works on Windows and Mac’s and comes in capacities ranging from 256MB up to 2GB.

Posted in Flash Memory,SanDisk,Security,USB by Nino Marchetti on June 4th, 2007

SanDisk Cruzer Profession and Enterprise USB Flash memory drives offere security with storageSanDisk today is offering business computer users some serious new security USB flash drives for protecting valuable data. These drives are the Cruzer Professional ($55 to $145) and the Cruzer Enterprise ($75 to $185).

The SanDisk Cruzer Professional, available in storage sizes up to 4GB, offers hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption. This is on top of letting you create a password protected private area on the drive for your eyes only. The Cruzer Professional gets a maximum read speed of 24MB per second.

The Cruzer Enterprise, meanwhile, has the same hardware protection while also taking the password option one step further. It requires that all of the drive’s contents be complex password protected. While we aren’t exactly sure what complex means we assume the four letter password of your dog’s name won’t work with this drive.

Lego USB Flash Drive

Lego USB Flash Drive from ZipZipUSB flash drives come in all shapes and sized these days, and not even a lego brick can escape it.

A Australian company called Zip Zip has created a 1GB USB flash memory thumb drive out of small Lego bricks just to add a little fun to you data storage needs.

This design makes me wonder if you could stack these bricks together, and something that would be really cool is if by stacking them you could expand the memory. But for now I think they are just regular Lego bricks with a flash drive built in.

The Lego USB flash drive comes in six colors of yellow, blue, red, white, black and green and retails for just under $49 ($59 AUD).

USB-RGB dongle adds monitor via USB

Posted in Accessories,USB by Chris Weber on May 30th, 2007

USB-RGB dongle allows you to add a second monitor through USBDevelopers, graphic designers and just about anyone that needs to frequently Alt-Tab between windows could stand to use a second monitor connected to their PC or notebook. Unfortunately not all computers have the extra connection, especially notebooks. Or maybe you just don’t want to mess with another video card on your desktop PC.

Either way I-O Data has a solution aptly called the USB-RGB. This dongle allows you to connect a second monitor to you computer through your USB port, ending the single-monitor constraint you’ve been living with for so long.

The USB-RGB dongle runs about $87 (10,600 yen) which isn’t a cheap solution, but it will get you there.

Yoggie Pico provides enterprise level security in a small USB stick.Yoggie has announced the unveiling of its new Pico USB stick used to protect your PC from incoming data through mediums such as your wireless adapter, LAN or Bluetooth. Similar to the Gatekeeper series, Pico is a Linux based software running on the small thumb-sized device with a built-in 520MHz processor and 128MB of RAM to keep those protection-processing resources out of your computer and in the device.

In an enterprise network, most of the protection for computers is provided by separate appliances protecting the whole network. At home any type of spam protection or firewall software usually runs directly on the computer, taking up memory and processing power. With the Pico this is all taken care of within the stick which simply plugs into your USB port.

The Yoggie Pico runs 13 different applications providing protection from …

USB Mini Fridge

USB Mini Fridge holds and can chill one can at a time powered by USB from your computer.This tiny desktop refrigerator is a definite step up from the USB Beverage cooler “cold plate” we wrote about last fall. With the ability to cool your drink down with a running temperature of just over 8 degrees C, this USB Mini Fridge can hold and cool exactly one standard 12 ounce can. It’s powered solely by USB via your computer which makes it a fairly portable personal fridge that can sit on your desk and keep your drinks cool, one at a time.

The design resembles a tiny refrigerator and even has a little LED light inside when opened (we have a feeling that this refrigerator light really does stay on all the time). We’re not sure how long it would take to actually cool down a can of …

Money Clip Flash Drive Holds Your Bank Statement and Roll

Money Clip Flash drive from MemorexSimilar to peanut butter and chocolate a money clip and a USB Flash drive each on their own are not too bad, but combine the two and now you’ve really got something.

One of the better Father’s Day gadget gift contenders I’ve seen this year, the Memorex Money Clip Flash Drive connects to both a Mac and PC via USB 2.0, has a 1GB capacity and is getting $34.99 at Target stores. It’s a little on the thick side as far as money clips go, but convenience should more the inconvenience of size.

You can see it listed at Target.com but you’ll have to find a brick and mortar to actually buy one.
