Samsung USB powered monitor

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

On the plus side, this monitor is USB powered. Even if it isn’t very portable. Samsung showed off the 18.5-inch LCD monitor a few days ago. It connects through USB and is powered by USB. So how did Samsung manage to accomplish this? According to the company, they did it “by improving the transmittance of the panel and the luminance efficiency of the backlight”. In other words, by dramatically lowering the monitor’s power consumption to as low as 6.3-watts.

Samsung plans on releasing some products just like this by next year. Here’s another drawback though. The monitor is only good for 30,000 hours, compared to 50,000 hours for conventional displays. I guess that isn’t too bad since this is for specialized needs.

If you do a lot of gaming with your Wii, you need an induction charger for your Wiimotes. It’s even better if that charger can charge your Wiimotes and two USB devices at the same time. For $35, the Konnet PowerV Duo does just that.

Ironman flash drive not powered by Arc Reactor

Posted in Storage by Shane McGlaun on May 11th, 2010

My son has been asking me to take him to see Ironman 2 since the first preview ran on TV. We went to see the flick last Friday when it opened and we were both pretty bored after only a bit of the movie had aired. It is far from as good as the first flick in the franchise.

I can only hope that the Ironman flash drive from Tyme Machines is more fun than the movie turned out to be. The company also makes flash drives that are sculpted to look like Star Wars characters.
