The chromebook is dubbed the Kogan Agora and is an ultra portable laptop that runs the Chrome OS on an Intel Celeron 1.3GHz processor, with 1GB of DDR2 RAM.

Kingmax Announces 64GB MicroSD Card

Kingmax announced this week the world’s first and only 64GB MicroSD card. The Class 6 SD card promises read and write speeds of up to 48Mbps which is optimal for transferring any large amounts of data to and from the device.

In case you don’t remember, this is the same company that brought us the 4GB MicroSD card back in 2007, lending the perfect example of how technology has multiplied and continues to grow at exponential rates. Now here’s the catch, although 64GB of data allows for massive computer-sized storage in the tiny form-factor of a smartphone, most devices don’t even support it.

Intel Raises Warranty On 320-Series SSD

Intel has recently announced that it would extend the limited warranty for its 320 series solid-state drives from three years to five. The company claims that this measure comes from confidence in the SSD’s reliability features and that the new policy includes customers who have already purchased 320 series solid-state drives. What’s a little strange is that the company didn’t extend the warranty with its 510-series, perhaps because it doesn’t run on the same 25 nanometer chip?

Datalocker 3 Offers Full Hard Drive Encryption; 320GB, 640GB, 1TB

Origin Storage has just rolled out the new Datalocker 3, an external hard disk that provides data encryption capability for the entire hard drive. The Datalocker 3 features USB 3.0 support, RFID for dual factor authentication and a backlit LCD on the drive, all features that weren’t present on the previous Datalocker 2.

Some customers have reported problems with the Datalocker 2, such as problems viewing the keypad whilst typing in their encryption access key in lowlit areas. Fortunately, this was remedied with Datalocker 3 and for good reason too! Datalocker 3 also supports a 31 digit access code in alphanumeric format and customers certainly don’t want to make mistakes that could lock them out of their drives.
