Seagate Business Storage 8-Bay Rackmount NAS Review | Posted on: 03/12/2013 @ 20:00
Introduction It's not every day innovation comes to network attached storage products. The category has been around for many years, standards have been set and significant new features hard to come by.

ROCCAT Apuri Active USB-Hub with Mouse Bungee Review | Posted on: 03/12/2013 @ 8:00
Introduction As far as mouse bungee systems go, every gaming peripheral maker worth their salt has some sort of offering to match the styling of their mice. Most of the entries I have seen also usually do one thing, and that is to maintain the cable of the mouse for a few reasons. These are pretty simple to understand the advantages.

External storage is quickly catching up to the speed and capacity of traditional internal solutions, thanks in part to the USB 3.0 specification, and now even more, Thunderbolt. Typical external solutions always had to be designed around the drive inside, which more often than not was a standard desktop drive shoved into an external shell.
