One of the less publicized themes of CES 2016 appears to be ‘ways to fix the 12-inch MacBook’. Not only does it come with just a single USB-C port, there’s also no memory card slot. So if you’re a photographer constantly transferring shots, you’ll want Satechi’s tiny new USB-C card reader always close at hand.
Sony's got a new deal for audiophiles, and it's so scammy it's almost impressive. The electronics company that apparently doesn't want to be an electronics company anymore is now peddling a Micro SD card "for Premium Sounds." A 64GB card will cost $160 which is more than five times what you'd pay for a normal Sony…
SD cards are everywhere now, and you can get them on the cheap. But SanDisk is not interesting "on the cheap" with the announcement of some crazy, insanely high-capacity flash memory that is more expensive than the camera you put it in.
SanDisk just announced an absurdly fast card that can go almost three times faster than the previous champ. Why do you need all that horsepower? To chomp 4K video, of course.
A couple of smartphones aside, 4K video has until recently been the preserve of pro-level equipment, and the memory cards found in most devices just can't keep up. But the next generation of SD cards will change that.
Instead of giving your unwanted memory cards away to your parents, or putting them someplace safe where they'll inevitably get lost, this easy-to-build kit lets you turn a bunch of unused microSD cards into a far more useful SSD drive.
Most card readers boast compatibility with almost every memory card format on the planet, but odds are you only ever use a couple of them at most. So Lexar has created a modular alternative it's calling the Professional Workflow HR1, with four bays that can be customized with your choice of compact flash, SD, or XQD…
Currently, I have microSDs spread all around my house—I'm sure I could find a couple if I searched hard enough, but the bulk-majority are probably lost in the dusty corners for good. A USB stick that houses all your cards makes so much sense I'm surprised that this is just a concept. [Yanko]
Where do bad memory cards go when they die? Probably somewhere very similar to this puppy, paintball, and tiny-hat filled obstacle course of doom. Warning: this video contains extreme SD brutality.
Shopping for SD cards has gotten a little bit easier, assuming you keep up-to-date on the latest SDXC/SDHC product iconography. Henceforth, products with bus-interface speeds up to 104MBps will carry a UHS-I symbol, while products that allow real-time video recording will have UHS Speed Class 1 symbols. Here's how…
Big news from the Sony camp today—they're embracing 1999's flash-in-the-pan fad and have launched their first line-up of SD cards. Hopefully that spells the death of the evil Memory Stick and sliding disinterest in their propriety formats.
If you find your digital camera gets into that sort of situation often, that's probably quite an attractive feature, right? In addition to withstanding 1.6-ton of weight, these three new memory cards are shock, water and magnet proof.
Like a predatory loan officer or an unstable partner, technology companies have an obsession with locking you down. Here are some of the worst examples of proprietary products that leave you trapped, broke and angry.
Whoa, these are card readers? Mundane but necessary gadgets deserve essentialized designs, and SanDisk's new ImageMate All-in-One and Multi-card look a lot like Neil Poulton's bare, black and glossy hard drives for LaCie.
SanDisk has created the first write-once SD memory card after over a year of talking about it. The WORM (Write Once Read Many) cards cannot be altered or deleted and are designed for information that must be kept intact, such as electronic voting records and police work. They are only 128MB for now, but bigger sizes…
So, sometimes you need to check to see if your lipstick is okay, and sometimes you need to download data from a memory card. To do both of those you need a device to help you out. But why would you combine both devices into one gizmo? I suppose it could save space in your purse if you're a really habitual memory-card…
Pop this USB 2.0-connected gadget into a spare drive bay in your PC and you will be able to read Smart Media, Compact Flash, Memory Stick, Secure Digital, MultiMedia Card, MicroDrive memory cards and... 3.5-inch floppy disks? You will have to spend $39 to discover if those 1987 backups still have any data. [RedFerret]
