We have been reading about it for almost a year now and its finalized. The New USB 3.1 will be twice the speed as USB 3.0 and will be able to deliver a whopping 100 Watts of power through the cable. The possibilities are going to be great. At The Present time the USB 3.0 can only deliver a mere 2.5 watts through the aging USB 1, 1.5, 2.0 then 3.0 Plug without data disruption.
USB flash drives have been around for quite a long time and are great for easily storing and transferring files. The mobile devices that we have these days have limited storage and with some you have the ability to add a USB storage, but with most devices this is not possible. Well SanDisk has come up with a great product that not only gives you USB storage but also wireless storage for your mobile devices as well. It is the SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive, which looks like your ordinary flash drive, but also allows you to stream content wirelessly to up to 3 devices at once! Read on as we take a look…
We all know what a benefit having a USB flash drive is for adding extra storage and transferring files between a desktop PC and a laptop. With the flood of mobile devices out there I’m sure you have a tablet or smartphone, or both. The issue with these is that for the most part they do not have traditional USB ports which would make it easy to add storage or transfer files. Well Kingston hopes to solve this issue with their DataTraveler microDuo USB drive that has a normal USB port on it for PCs and a smaller microUSB port on it to be used on mobile devices. Let’s take a look…
Kingston has just announced their DataTraveler microDuo, which features a dual interface. This small form factor USB drive will pack in a normal USB connection as well as a smaller microUSB connection for portable devices like tablets and smartphones.

We travelers carry with us a growing number of devices that charge via USB: phones, tablets, cameras, and more. While devices are solid, easily stored objects, their power cords and wall adapters are nebulous masses of frustration at the bottom of a backpack! The Aviiq Portable Charging Station aims to address this problem by providing a neat carrying case with a removable, four port USB power hub. It provides spools for cables and lays them in such a way that removing them isn’t wholly necessary. ThinkComputers has the review.
Just about every USB device once purchases comes with a USB cable. However, any person who has a lot of USB devices can veritably explain that not all USB cables are created equal.

This trio includes cables with a standard USB A male connector on one end and a micro USB connector (for phones, primarily), mini USB connector (for cameras and such), or an iPod connector.
