We first caught wind of SDXC back at CES, and just today Pretec announced the world's first SDXC card. Much to our pleasure, said card was on hand at the outfit's booth at CeBIT. Sadly, we were forced to photograph the one behind the glass bubble, as some incredibly evil individual managed to swip...

The kids at Pretec sure love taking things to the limit. Whether they're announcing the world's smallest microSD reader, the largest CF card, or submerging their new flash drive in water, they have a certain fondness for the dramatic gesture. While the company's newest endeavor doesn't provide an oc...

We love when lofty claims actually get put to the test, and while we know that an iPod can't hold its own in a blender and an unshielded PSP is no match for a katana, neither of those actually touted any form of defense to begin with.

Enter SanDisk's Extreme III and Pretec's 16GB CF cards which will go into mass production later this ye...
