OWC will add an eSATA port in your iMac for $169

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Does Apple hate connectivity standards? Always seems that way. So OWC is now offering an inexpensive option to fix yet anothet Apple design flaw. For just $169, plus shipping, the company will cut a small hole in the bottom grill and install the missing eSATA port.

The only problem is that the port isn’t port-multiplication-compatible so it won’t work properly with most multi-drive RAID enclosures. Still, if you want it, they will do it. Like Burger King, you can have your iMac your way.

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2010

Looking for something new in a microwave? Well, these combi-ovens are pretty popular in Europe, because they are a bit more versatile and they look good. They offer up a USB port and menu-creating software.

The kitchen will never be the same now that you can program the mode and time of cooking for your favorite meals and store them on a USB drive. But what we really want to know is, will it charge our gadgets or not?

49-port USB hubMost computers only have about 2 to 4 USB ports, even the best motherboards only offer 10 or 15 USB ports. But let’s face it, you need more. You have your flash drives, your USB toys, USB Christmas lights, drink coolers etc. You NEED more ports in a USB hub.

This baby has 49. That’s right 49. You’ll never be without a USB port again unless you have way too many USB gadgets. Like say, 50. It’s actually meant for a more professional environment, like say, getting input from 49 different cameras simultaneously and the like. But you can have one too. It’s powered from a standard ATX power supply.

Corsair Flash Voyager PortThe Corsair Flash Voyager Port will work with just about any USB drive. Pushing the button will launch a software backup, transferring pre-determined data over to the docked USB flash drive. What this does is make any decent sized USB flash drive into the perfect backup drive.

Corsair wants you tp use their 64GB drive obviously. Nice device that is actually useful and provides some flexibility and freedom. Just keep track of your flash drives if you are using several. No word on availability, but the Corsair Flash Voyager Port should be available in a few weeks for under $20.

USB “Port” Wine sticks it to the EU

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2008

USB “Port” Wine sticks it to the EUBecause of a new EU trade rule, wineries aren’t allowed to use the word “port” on their label unless the wine was actually made in Portugal. Which sucks for some wine makers. But California’s Peltier Station Winery came up with a unique loophole. They are calling their new dessert wine “USB” and they’ve even put a tree with USB roots on the label. That’s what I call sticking it to the man! The man being the EU. The fun doesn’t end there however.

A company called 6 West Design made the label and they did something special with the USB-tree on the front. It’s is made of binary code that translates to “Peltier Station.” There are also some fill-in-the-blanks on the back of the label like “an im____ant agreement” or “in your ____folio.” This my friends is how you screw the powers-that-be, instead of them screwing you.
