Right now, the Amazon cable line will include HDMI, USB, and FireWire cables, CD-Rs, DVR+R, DVD-R, networking cables and other various home theater cables.

There is never a shortage of USB flash drives on the market, and what makes Transcend’s JetFlash V70 different is its rubber coating. It is capable of surviving some good drops, which is important when you are lugging several of these things around. And don’t get me started on the importance of the tethered cap holder.
The color of the drive tells you much memory each of them have. The purple is 4 GB, the orange is 8 GB, and the red is 16 GB. No word on the price, though.

The other day I made a big deal over Sony’s ridiculous 2TB Memory Stick XC. Today, I am putting this tiny little microSD reader in the spotlight. Dubbed by many as a thumbnail drive, the entire apparatus is contained within the USB connector itself. How cool is that?
You can order it on GeekStuff4u for $150 for the 16GB model, or $35 for the 4GB.
I don’t know what it is about the Mimo 710-S, but I just have to like it. Maybe it’s because I could use a little portable flip-shut monitor for my laptop, even if it is 7-inches with 800x480 resolution. Maybe it is because it attaches to my laptop easily via USB. Actually, I think I like pretty much everything about the Mimo 710-S, except the price, which is $140.
