Western Digital’s MyPassport 1TB hard drive could be the answer you’re looking for. Not only does it offer a ton of storage, but comes in a small form factor and is equipped with USB 3.0 technology.

I’m always a bit skeptical of gaming cases, or the enthusiast cases. There’s no way I could convince myself to walk into my nearest Fry’s and pick one off the shelf that looked good. It simply goes against the common sense that many of us have developed to do our research before we buy. That [...]
Decades ago, there was a man who had a dream of powering the entire world wirelessly. His vision was to use giant towers that would transmit electricity through the air, which would be harvested by receivers that would use them to power homes and electronics. Not that there were that many electronics back in [...]
SuperSpeed USB emerged onto the scene as an answer to the limited bandwidth of today’s current popular connectivity interface. The additional throughput is a boon for external hard drives, but most other devices aren’t fast enough to take advantage of it. With USB 3.0 external drives, you can now realistically perform intensive data transfer tasks [...]
SuperSpeed USB (otherwise known as USB 3.0) is a new standard for PC peripheral connectivity. Although Intel has been hesitant to make this interface truly standard, more and more vendors are including the technology on their motherboards, and you can even purchase add-on cards to upgrade your current system. The increase in data transfer naturally [...]
Laptops are annoying. They are generally slower than desktops, come with less memory and smaller hard drives, and seem to overheat almost at a whim. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know what I would have done without my netbook when I was stuck at the Pittsburgh airport for twelve solid hours, but they are [...]
Despite its slow start in the console war, the PS3 has come into its own of late, as it is a very strong multimedia powerhouse in addition to a great gaming machine. What the commercials say really is true: The PS3 just does about everything. My PS3 is practically a dedicated multimedia PC. It streams [...]
Nearly every hardware critic agrees that Apple’s iPhone is an evolutionary leap in cell phone gadgetry. Those same reviewers unamimously condemn the company for its battery policy. The iPhone’s battery life is woefully inadequate and the battery cannot be easily replaced. Normally a company puts limitations on a product in order to upsell an additional [...]
Nearly everyone has a USB drive today, but the one demographic that seems to have the most of them are students. Life would have been a lot different if I could carry around a 1-ounce piece of plastic rather than reams of ripped paper in my Trapper Keeper (which has been strewn down the hall [...]
Nearly everyone in modern society has need for portable digital storage, and therefore carry some sort of USB flash drive. They have replaced the floppy drive in terms of portable ubiquity (even Windows finally uses them to load disk drivers at install time), and it’s so convenient to be able to copy files to and [...]
I don’t know how many times I’ve needed to back up my hard drive for a reinstall of my OS and been left wanting because I didn’t have any place to put all my pictures and data. I’ve had to rewrite several articles and reviews do to exactly such a scenario. It’s a sad fact, [...]
We have seen a host of funky contraptions for PC gamers. We have seen force-feedback flak jackets, custom keyboards, gyroscopic 3d joysticks and 3d glasses. Never before have I encountered a gaming gadget like the Peregrine USB glove. That’s right… a USB glove. It’s a new way to control PC games that you wear on [...]
Sony’s Playstation 3 is well known for being loud and hot. Unfortunately, those are not qualities that most people look for in electronics, especially when it comes to gaming systems. One of the most highly recommended accessories for the PS3 or Xbox 360 are cooling fans, and Evercool has produced the Defender Turbo Cooling Fan [...]
I had an issue on two of my computers where the screen saver would never start. I could preview the screen saver, but no matter how long I waited it would never come on. I tried a number of things, changing various settings, but nothing seemed to work. Last night I did another search on [...]
I’ve always been an advocate of external devices. Except for HDD enclosures - the lack of heat dissipation on most of them makes me shudder in my Spiderman jammies. But other stuff, like thousands of Plug N’ Play USB devices out there, have always made my eyes glaze over and my tongue hang like a puppy [...]
