You’d have assumed that by the time the 24th century rolled around, wi-fi would be available across the galaxy. But Picard’s Enterprise apparently still relied on isolinear chips—Star Trek’s version of flash drives— to share data. ThinkGeek’s version probably isn’t quite as advanced, but you don’t have to tell your…
The nomadic lifestyle of a 3D printsmith is made all the more difficult when it comes to carrying your 3D printer from town to town. Ultimaker has heard your lamentations, though, and has come up with a solution that promises to make transporting a 3D printer a little easier: a $69 pair of shoulder straps.
Tools are expensive, but so is having to replace your rolling tool chest, because you misplaced its key in your workshop and had to physically cut the lock open.

Our current solution to apples that start to soften (just bake them into a pie) has been working darn well. But a new method could give us apples that stay crisp for several weeks.
Storage devices have taken many strange forms over history. We’ve seen everything from an old 19th-century loom to massive data centers that power companies like Facebook and Google.

No matter what the size—eight-inch, 5 1/4-inch, 3 1/2-inch—floppy disks are the most iconic symbols of old-school computing. But how do they actually work? The 8-Bit Guy spends 15 minutes breaking down what makes floppy disks so cool, despite being obsolete.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of people who need a portable hard drive. One type just needs a little additional storage periodically and would rather have something flexible and portable than a big honking drive that plugs into the wall.

Besting Sandisk’s (or is it Western Digital’s?) 200GB microSD card announced last year, Samsung just announced a $250 256GB microSD card boasting read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively.

Unless you’ve somehow found a way to earn a living by torrenting and hoarding movies and TV shows, you probably don’t need LaCie’s new 12big Thunderbolt 3 storage solution. On the other hand, if you’re capturing and editing 4K video all day long, you’ll undoubtedly want the 96 TB behemoth.

Seagate’s new SSD will be very, very fast indeed. In fact, able to transfer data at up to 10GBps, it’s 6GBps faster than its previous best—and it’s claimed it will be the fastest in the world.
