Toshiba Introduces Write-Once SD Card

Posted in Toshiba by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2011

Toshiba has announced an SD card like you have never seen before. It allows users to store up to 1GB of content, but the content can not be erased or modified in any way. Write once and that’s it. It also can not be formatted. It looks like any other SD card and can be used just like a normal card.

What you store on it stays on it. Toshiba is targeting “governmental offices” and businesses with the Write-Once Card and they have already started selling them in Japan. The company is probably testing the waters with this low capacity card, hoping to deliver media on them eventually.

As a general rule, SD cards are not tough. They’re wimpy and easily broken. Not this one though. The Raw Steel Super Tough SD card from Hoodman has protective metal imbedded in the front to make it extremely rugged.

The storage device is also made using epoxy, so it is waterproof as well. Sounds like this memory card is tougher than your digital camera. It’s available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB of storage sizes and the SDHC cards will be released on November 15th.

Eye-Fi announced a new update today that allows users of digital cameras that can record video to automatically upload the video directly to Facebook without having to use a computer. The video is also added to RSS feeds to tell friends when it is uploaded.

Nintendo is “working on a solution” to Wii storage

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2008

Nintendo is “working on a solution” to Wii storageWe’ve seen the writing on the wall and it seems to indicate that Nintendo is working on some USB devices for the Wii, but Laurent Fischer of Nintendo Europe quashed that idea while another option now seems open. According to GamesIndustry.biz, he says that the company is “working on a solution” to the Wii storage problem, but he also says “definitely there’s no plan to issue hardware,” like a hard drive.

So the thinking now is that Nintendo is working on a firmware update that would allow downloaded games to be played directly from SD cards, but no one knows for sure. We may get more details as E3 approaches.

Eye-Fi SD CardsIf you shoot lots of pictures at your home, the office or a friend’s house—really anywhere there is a Wi-Fi hotspot– the Eye-Fi may be the perfect SD storage card for you.

Previously, Eye-Fi only had one product in its line but today it announced three products. The Eye-Fi Explore is the most expensive at $129. It automatically finds nearby Wi-Fi networks and adds geolocation tags to images taken automatically using Skyhook’s global Wi-Fi positioning system. The Explorer also allows the uploading of images from over 10,000 Wayport hotspots in the U.S. and has 2GB of storage capacity.
