    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 3

    Ah Wednesday, Reader Response Festivus Week moves on bringing us one day closer to Friday; one day closer to that Nikon D40. It also means that today is the first day we’re giving away a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium. I’ve been using a Titanium flash drive for a bunch of months now and I heart it. U3 enabled drives kick major ass. Especially if you use a lot of public terminals. You can boot… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 1

    To think we started CrunchGear just a little over five months ago. Its growth has been quick, and looking across the posts there is a comment on almost every entry. It kind of makes me sentimental when I think of how fast our little site is growing up. Pretty soon it’ll start growing hair in inconvenient places and thinking about other blogs in new ways. I’m preparing myself for those… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week

    As I mentioned previously, Reader Response for the coming week is going to be big. Rather than awarding one grand prize on Friday, we’ll be awarding prizes every day next week. And boy are they good prizes. Since Festivus is next week, we’ve decided to pull out all the stops and give away some of our best prizes ever. So good in fact, that you’re going to have to take the jump to… Read More

  • More Zune Hatin': Who Picks Brown? No One!

    chocolate-brown Zune, but Business Week posted a little sales data from Amazon.com to back up the public sentiment. On Dec. 9, the black Zune (Amazon counts each stock keeping unit, or SKU, as a separate product) was the 60th most popular consumer electronics item with Amazon customers. That’s a good performance only in comparison with the brown Zune, which ranked 292nd, and the white model… Read More

    Holiday Portable Media Player Guide: What's Right for You?

    There are loads of PMP choices—not all of them from Apple—that are worthy of being carried around and fondled as you go about your day. What’s right for you may not be right for the businessman who commutes two hours, or the athlete who burns more calories sneezing than you do the entire day. We know you don’t fit into any one “demographic,” but we can’t… Read More

  • SanDisk Sansa e200R Rhapsody Reviewed

    People have loved the SanDisk Sansa line of players lately for its good storage size, small body and decent features, but how well does their new e200R player work with the Rhapsody music service? Pretty darn well. Their closed-loop infrastructure that matches iPod + iTunes or Zune + Zune Marketplace works pretty straightforwardly. So what’s the difference between this model and the… Read More

  • Best Buy Partnering with Real, SanDisk for Music Store

    . And they’re doing it with their new best friends, SanDisk and Real Networks. Real and SanDisk already have a partnership aimed at Apple in the form of the Sansa e200 DAP and Real’s Rhapsody service. Best Buy’s input will likely be a subscription-based service at around $10 a month for unlimited downloads. Quit paying, and the downloads cease to work. We’re not sure how… Read More

  • Battle Test: SanDisk Cruzer Titanium

    Battle Test: SanDisk Cruzer Titanium

    A few years ago I got a Lexar 2GB USB flash drive for Christmas. It came in a small, unattractive package and stood amongst other far more valuable items. In retrospect, it was probably one of the single greatest and most useful gifts that I’ve ever received. The drive stood with me through a lot and never once failed. Not even when I lost its cap and feared the USB slot would be damaged in… Read More

    iPod and iTunes Competitors are Teaming Up to Fight Apple

    SanDisk, makers of the Sansa players, and RealNetworks, makers of the Rhapsody music store, are teaming up together to ensure their hardware and content work seamlessly together.

It was this synergy, among various other things, that allows the iPod to become the de-facto champ of portable music players and… Read More

    SanDisk Hits 4GB with miniSD SDHC

    SanDisk has unveiled it 4GB miniSD High Capacity (SDHC) flash card. Before you get too excited, I should note that these things aren’t supported by any devices yet. These SDHC cards comply to the new SDA 2.0 standard that will eventually allow miniSD to contain up to 32GB. Amazing really. That much capacity on something so small. They should be widely available next year, but for now you can… Read More
