Windows 8, it seems like we have been hearing a lot about it over the past couple of months. Recently Microsoft has released the consumer preview, which is free to download so you can try out the new operating system before it ships. If you have ever installed any Windows operating system from a CD or DVD you know it can be very time consuming. Why not speed up the process by installing the operating system using a USB flash drive. In this article we will show you how to take the Window 8 ISO and put it on a flash drive for fast and easy installation.
The USB flash drive has not really changed much. We have seen all types of flash drives over the past few year, ones that are practically indestructible and other that are waterproof, but the technology in the drive itself really has not changed. Patriot has decided to change this with the Xporter XT Rage line of USB flash drives. These drives feature a Quad Channel configuration, data is intelligently managed and transferred simultaneously to 4 NAND chips resulting in vastly enhanced performance, particularly write speeds: Rage improves on traditional USB 2.0 Flash Drives to offer up to 27MB/s read and 25MB/s write transfer speeds. Let’s take a look…
Designer flash drives have been around for quite a while and Mimobot has been one of the top names when it comes to cool designer flash drives. They have quite a few cool flash drives that have their own interesting designs. Their line of licensed flash drives includes Hello Kitty, Star Wars, Halo, Domo, and Happy Tree Friends. Of course when they asked us if we wanted to review a drive we picked Star Wars. They were nice enough to send us their Stormtrooper Unmasked 2GB drive. It is called Unmasked because you have a 50/50 change of receiving Han or Luke. Read on to see which drive we received!
USB flash drives have been around for quite some time now. Out of all the drives I’ve ever reviewed my favorite line of drives has to be the Flash Voyager series from Corsair. The main reason is because they are basically indestructible. I take a flash drive with me everywhere and so I need one that is going to take the wear and tear! Corsair first came out with the original Flash Voyager, then the Flash Voyager GT, recently the Flash Padlock 2, and now the Flash Voyager GTR. The GTR is made to be fast boasting speeds of 32MB/s read and 28MB/s write! Corsair was nice enough to send us the 32GB version of the drive so let’s take a look!
Four years ago Corsair introduced the Flash Voyager USB drive, a USB drive that was practically indestructible. A Year after that they came out with the Flash Padlock, u USB drive that had a keypad on the front that allowed you to lock and unlock it to protect your data. It seems Corsair has put the two together and released the Flash Padlock 2, which is basically the Flash Voyager with the Padlock keypad on the front. So not only can you protect your data with a key code you get the awesome protection of the Flash Voyager design.
Regardless of what you do or even where you are from I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Star Wars. The original movies were so revolutionary and the newer ones brought the franchise back to life. With the popularity of the Star Wars franchise you would expect there to be all kinds of Star Wars related products, but this is one of the first time I’ve seen Star Wars themed USB Flash drives. Today I will be looking at the Darth Vader USB Flash drive from Tyme Machines. Let’s see if it turns me to the dark side…
If you have a company you have some type of promotional materials whether it is stickers, t-shirts, mouse pads, etc. One promotional item that has become very popular over the past few years is the flash drive. Flash drives are very inexpensive and almost anyone has a use for one. We were contacted by PromoLocker and they asked us to review a few of their drives. Not only did they send us drives, they took our logo and put it on the drives as well. Let’s take a look at these drives and see if they are what you need for your company.
Today we have the chance to look at yet another Godfather flash drive. This time we are taking a look at the Rubber model, instead of the swivel version we took a look at a few days ago.

Remember the day whenever 8GB Flash Drives were highest capacity drives on the market and cost a fortune?

This flash drive is so large that it could be used as another hard drive for your system. But how much will it cost you? Read on further to find out.
Movie merchandising sometimes goes a little beyond imagination. In Spaceballs, Yogurt spends considerable time in one scene showing all the merchandising which is being done for the movie. Had such a scene existed in director Francis Ford Coppolla’s The Godfather, I’m sure that USB drives-had they existed back then-would have been included, regardless of how relevant to the story they are. ThinkComputers reviews the Godfather 2 GB swivel Flash drive from memory maker Super Talent, which teamed up with Paramount Pictures to created the licensed storage device. We take a look, and decide that this is an offer we can refuse.
