Frankly, we've our doubts that this planet is even home to 47 different useful types of flash cards, but if you're Boy Scout instincts simply won't let you leave the house unprepared, there's Elecom's MR-A005.

You know, sometimes it's just the simple things in life that really bring a smile to one's face. Take this cable, for instance.

While details concerning pricing, availability, and construction were all but nil, AVing's crew did mana...

X-Men fans wouldn't want their Wolverine any other way than pumped up and ready to dominate, but PMP fans aren't exactly looking for the most inflated device on the block. Still, Wolverine's multifaceted ESP 5160 retains the rather bulky 5.3- x 2.8- x 0.9-inch enclosure of the previous (and less c...

We're fully aware that digicam sensors are getting incredibly large (sometimes unnecessarily so) these days, and it seems like alternatives to carrying around an assortment of flash cards are popping up everywhere.

Hmm, looks like we've got a bit of a conflict here, as we've now got two companies claiming that its microSD reader is indeed the world's smallest. Of course, Pretec doesn't bother giving us the dimensions, so its crown will have to remain in pending for the time being, but the i-Disk Micro Reader i...

File this under "cool stuff" or "stuff that could never be produced in the U.S. because of licensing rules". A company in Hong Kong (sure looks like HK to me; please correct me if I'm wrong), has produced an 8-in-one flash card reader that plugs into your computer's USB port, and...
