  • Seagate to Stop Selling the IDE, Maybe a Little SATA You Would Like?


    Photo via Jason Dunn Seagate, the company that I think I bought my first hard drive from, will stop selling IDE drives by year’s end, focusing exclusively on SATA. SATA currently is currently found in more than half of total desktops sold this year and 44 percent of laptops sold. Don’t expect IDE to go the way of the Dodo, however. Like all good standards (when’s the last… Read More

    Well boys and girls, I’m now planted firmly in Austin for this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW). My trip to GDC 2007 reared a few interesting items like Emotiv’s Project Epoc and a nice case of laryngitis. The voice is is a hoarse wisp of my… Read More

  • Apple vs. The World: Playing Dress-Up With Your Apple


    Windows users always pull out the old “there are no peripherals for Mac” chestnut whenever they’re backed into a corner by rabid Apple addicts. While it’s true there aren’t as many extras for Mac as there are for Windows, there are still plenty of peripherals to go around. To prove our point, we rounded up a bunch of our favorites. There are of course tons more… Read More

  • The Help Key: Back The Frak Up

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/editor, the situation was particularly dire.) Since then I’ve been very “don’t let this happen to you” when I talk to people about backing up their files. The number of digital media files alone on my computer skyrocketed over the past few years and to lose that stuff would be devastating. You… Read More

    http://www.podtech.net/player/podtech-player.swf?bc=3F34K2L1 While D.A.V.E. isn’t the most clever acronym in town (it stands for Digital Audio-Video Experience), it looks to be a promising gadget thanks to its slim design and features. Seagate’s D.A.V.E. is basically a small, 20GB hard disk with Bluetooth and WiFi built right into the device. You can transfer files to and fro… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Seagate's Hard Drives, iPod Accessories Galore And Exhaustion

    , but with more walking. This entry catalogs the companies I met with the first “half” of January 8, my first full day of the show. After waiting in a cab line for half an hour and then coughing up $20 to get from our hotel to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) I hit the show floor for my first meeting at 9:30 with Seagate. Last time I spoke with the company reps back at… Read More

  • Seagate Says It Has The "World's Fastest Hard Drive"

    Seagate sure is proud to show off its new Savvio hard drive. Seagate claims that this 15,000-RPM drive is the fastest on earth due to the 2.5-inch frame it uses. It also consumes less power than most hard drives while idling. You can even access data in a lightning-fast 2.9ms! Wow, this is real exciting stuff! I mean, think about what you could do in 2.9ms! You could pretend to picture John… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…


    I had such high hopes and big plans for this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. And yet, within four hours of setting down in Las Vegas, my dreams began to crumble.

  • Seagate's CEO Is a Mr. Dirty Mouth

    I’ve always had an admiration for stalwarts like Seagate and Maxtor. They’ve been around since those halcyon days of 286es and DOS, so I feel kind of protective about the brand and their products. Luckily, they’re in good hands with Bill Watkins. I’ve never met the man, but apparently he’s a pip. Fortune is running selection of choice quotes including his opinion… Read More

  • Seagate Gets Definitive With The Maxtor Brand

    Sorry, guess it’s a hard-drive morning. Seagate Technology this morning specified exactly how it’ll position the Maxtor-brand internal hard drives it picked up when the company purchased Maxtor earlier this year. In short, Maxtor will be the mainstream label, Seagate will be the premium label. You’ll be able to grab DiamondMax drives in capacities up to 320GB and… Read More
