Clickfree's Transformer turns any USB drive into a backup device

Sun Microsystems used to say, "the network is the computer", but in this case, the smarts are all in the cable. Clickfree's Transformer cable contains their backup and restore software, and uses the "autorun" feature of Microsoft Windows to automatically launch their backup/restore whenever the device is connected to your PC. None of the software is ever copied to your hard drive, but it does run each time you insert the cable directly from the device. We had a chance to get a quick demonstration from Clickfree's CEO, Bryan McLeod.  Read More

Battery running low on you're mobile phone? Sounds like it's time for a walk.

Beats by Dr. Dre

While we covered the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones back in July 2008, it took a trip to the Monster Audio booth at CES 2009 for Gizmag's Tim Hanlon to get his ears on a set. So how do they compare with the benchmarks set by the German engineering coming out of companies like beyerdynamic and Sennheiser? To put it bluntly, he was blown away.  Read More

The Casio EX-FC100

Casio impressed everyone last year by displaying their high speed technology in the EX-F1 and EX-FH20 prosumer digital cameras. The high speed technology enabled functions like high burst shooting and high speed video, allowing users to capture images and video faster than the eye can see - providing an ultra slow motion effect. Now, at CES 2009, Casio has announced that it has squished these functions into a compact camera with its new EXILIM models, the EX-FS10 and the EX-FC100. By bringing the art of high speed photography into a convenient pocket sized form, Casio has once again brought digital camera standards to a new level. Both cameras are capable of up to a 30 shot-per-second burst rate (at 6.0 megapixel resolution) and high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. Regular images can be captured at 9.1 megapixels.  Read More

iRobot 2nd Generation Looj Gutter Cleaning Robot

January 9, 2009 Consumer robotics manufacturer iRobot is demonstrating the second generation Looj Gutter Cleaning Robot at CES, which is newsworthy in that the original model won last year’s 2008 Best of CES Innovations Award and it’s still the only product of its kind. The Looj, makes gutter cleaning faster (it can clean up to 60-foot of gutter in10 minutes), easier and safer by reducing ladder work and reaching in precarious positions. The new Looj comes in three models starting at US$130, and has been significantly redesigned with additional features that help it break up clogged leaves and debris and improve overall performance.  Read More

SDXC Memory Cards to provide 2TB storage in defacto standard format

January 8, 2009 The next-generation SDXC (eXtended Capacity) memory card specification was announced today and while it promises the inevitable seemingly limitless capacities we always knew would arrive eventually, it certainly paints a picture of digital life being quite different in the future. The new SDXC specification provides up to 2 terabytes storage capacity and accelerates SD interface read/write speeds to 104 megabytes per second this year, with a road map to 300 megabytes per second. The day is not far away when a single chip can store weeks of high-definition video, a lifetime photo collection, and months of music. Enough to store your entire life and its soundtrack in your mobile phone. Professional hi-def video equipment form factors will become incredibly small.  Read More
