Memory Stick

  • Fast food and donut USB sticks

    Tokyo-based crap accessory maker Greenhouse has given us a plethora of gadgets that basically make no sense over the last months, and these new USB memory sticks don’t look to be different. Much like the cork- and light bulb-shaped USB sticks Greenhouse released not too long ago, they don’t offer anything special technically. Read More

  • Cork USB stick and light bulb USB stick

    I don’t know what it is about Japan and USB, but Nippon just keeps on churning out USB-powered crap gadgets. Thanko is one of the Tokyo-based companies responsible for this phenomenon, the other is Greenhouse. And Greenhouse announced not one but two silly USB gadgets, memory sticks to be more exact in the last 48 hours: One is shaped like a cork [JP], the other like a mini light bulb [JP]. Read More

    Oh my, Sony. You have too many memory sticks. With that being said, the Memory Stick PRO Duo will soon be available in 32GB form. This is not to be confused with the recently announced 32GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo. These are separate flash memory devices.

  • Sony Ericsson dropping Memory Stick Micro, apparently stopped taking moron pills

    Well here’s a welcome addition to today’s happiness bank: Sony Ericsson is dropping the Memory Stick Micro, Sony’s red hot memory stick platform, for MicroSD. The Memory Stick, if you’ll recall, was Sony’s attempt to rule the roost when it came to memory cards, a strategy that failed so spectacularly that they created an entire sidereal constellation of memory… Read More

  • Lexar to produce Memory Stick Micro (M2)

    Soon Memory Stick Micro users will have another manufacturer option besides Sony or SanDisk with Lexar. The memory firm is going to produce the Sony proprietary flash memory drives in both 2 and 4GB capacities and will be available later this year at what we can only guess will be competitive pricing. Just thinking here, but wouldn’t it be nice to only have one or two flash… Read More

  • SanDisk rolls out premium microSD cards. Premium means faster transfer speeds

    Apparently there’s a need for “premium” micoSD cards (and the like), otherwise SanDisk wouldn’t bother producing them. The company has just revealed premium models of microSD, microSDHC and Memory Stick Micro (M2) flash cards, all featuring faster transfer speeds than conventional, non-premium cards. If you’re asking yourself, “That’s all that makes… Read More

  • CrunchRumor: Sony launching 16GB Memory Stick at CES?

    We hate rumors. No, wait, we love them. So do you, that’s why you’re here. We’ve got one that we’ve been hearing about that will bore most of you, but some of you will love. The word is that at CES in January, Sony is going to be dropping 16GB Memory Stick Pros, doubling the current top-end of 8GB.

    Ever wanted to take the awesome photos from your digital camera and throw them on your iPod immediately? I haven’t and probably won’t ever need to thanks to iPhoto, iTunes, and iPod-syncing. But perhaps you have a PC or a need to get those photos from your digicam right onto your iPod? Say hello to iAlbum. Sakar International’s iAlbum is a little accessory that allows the… Read More

  • Sony Preps PSP Movie Store, Does Anyone Care?

    UMD has been a thorn in Sony’s side since it was introduced as an ill-fated storage format for the popular PSP almost two years ago. Sony has had a string of proprietary format failures, and has now faded into relative obscurity. That does not mean that movies for the PSP is a dead idea, though. Reports indicate that Sony is developing a movie download store of its own, much like… Read More

  • PSP Memory Doubler Defies Laws of Nature, God

    Your PSP has one lousy card slot for your Memory Stick. You want two card slots. What do you do? Buy another PSP, that’s what, you immoral nerd. It’d be better than being seen by the rest of the town with this abomination attached to your gaming device.
