    Feel Free To Run Samsung’s New Memory Cards Over With A Truck

    Japanese camera maker Exemode announced [JP] the Hello Kitty DV520KT today, a simple 5MP CMOS camcorder that only has one thing going for it: it features mega-popular cartoon cat Hello Kitty saying “Hi” on the hardware. That’s what it probably makes perfect for young girls though. Read More

  • TV viewers now refusing to watch SD content?

    There’s a handy option in the DirecTV menu guide for “HDTV Channels.” On the rare occasion when I’m actually sitting in front of the TV looking to “channel surf” (more like “menu surf” nowadays), it’s only “HDTV channels” I’m concerned with. Nearly halfway through 2010, it has come to the point where, unless I absolutely… Read More

    So maybe the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, the G10, along with the SX10 IS just don’t scream your style. Canon understands that and has the obligatory, new Digital Elph upgrades just for you.

  • Now SD cards will come built-in; and why wasn't this done years ago?

    I’ve always kind of wondered why more phones and media players didn’t have more built-in storage. SD is cheap, and fast enough for most low-demand data uses — mp3s, small videos, any kind of office doc — yet while my phone has a MicroSD slot, I believe its internal storage (the default for pictures, music and so on) is a whopping 16 megabytes. You’d think… Read More

They’re big in Japan, but you know this kind of crap is going to make it across the Pacific sooner rather than later. Pimpable MicroSD Card Reader… Read More

This one from Panasonic, available in April, is a 32-gigabyte card. Granted, it’s $700 but it does work rather speedily with a 20mb/sec transfer speed. There’s a SanDisk 32-gigabyte card that’ll also be out… Read More

  • 2GB SD card does Wi-Fi in digital cameras

    Hey, now THAT’S a good idea. This $99 2GB SD memory card has built in wireless.
