Read more: The IronKey USB Flash Drive  - Most Secure in the World?For those who have not read the preview of the IronKey, in summary it is a USB flash drive with a dedicated hardware encryption chip and a self-destruct ability, bundled with secure means of accessing internet and storing your passwords.

Is the tamperproof and waterproof IronKey the toughest and most secure USB flash drive in the world?

We tested the 4GB version for you below.

 

Joby GorillaPod: Going Ape Over a Tripod

Written by Kevin Cheng on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: Joby GorillaPod: Going Ape Over a Tripod There's a pleasure that may be had from the simple act of placing a gadget on a table and watching someone's brain kick into gear as they realise what its purpose is.  The Joby “Original” Gorillapod garners the lion share of attention as I parade it past a few photography aficionados.  There are plenty of bragging rights to this gadget.

 

The Gorillapod is a camera tripod with a “twist”  - literally!  Lots of twists in fact.  Instead of straight barrel legs, each leg is composed of 9 articulated ball joints, each capable of bending ~45° and rotating 360° to provide unprecedented flexibility and support for taking the perfect photo.

 

Despite the "pod" suffix, the Gorillapod bears no relation to products from that "fruit company" based in Cupertino.  Even before I attach it to my camera, I am already thinking back to the numerous trips I have made and wishing I had had this in my gear pack.

Read more: OCZ Rally 2 and VBoost Flash DrivesToday, we will be taking a look at two different flash drives from OCZ.  The first one is the OCZ Rally 2. 

The OCZ Rally 2 is a general purpose flash drive used to store your personal files and folders. 

The other flash drive we will be taking a look at is the OCZ VBoost Flash drive. While this drive can also be used for personal files, this flash drive was meant to be used with Windows Vista's feature ReadyBoost. 

In this review, we will take a look at both of these drives and discuss their design, performance, and functionality.  For the VBoost drive, we will focus on how well it performs in Vista in conjunction with ReadyBoost.

Today I’m interviewing two female staff members who were the happy recipients of a couple of Nicole Miller fashion accessories, crafted by Prima Cases.
Having reviewed numerous luxury leather cases over the years you tend to become a little bit blasé about these things but I knew Prima were on to something special when I observed the ladies’ reaction at the unboxing. 

The Where did you get that?  reactions from their girlfriends also affirmed here was something out of the ordinary in our fashion conscious society.

Qstarz BT-Q1000 Double 32 Bluetooth GPS Travel Recorder - Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Navigation

Read more: Qstarz BT-Q1000 Double 32 Bluetooth GPS Travel Recorder - ReviewedOne of the more prolific GPS manufacturers has to be Qstarz.

We have reviewed a number of their products of the last few years but the newly released Travel Recorder is the most fully featured receiver we have come across. The Qstarz BT-Q1000 features an outstanding endurance of 32 hours whilst also tracking 32 satellites but it also can log over 100,000 way points and has a POI button for immediately recording a point of interest with a push of a button.  With built-in Google Earth integration this makes for a powerful combination.

So we took the Qstarz BT-Q1000 Double 32 Bluetooth GPS Travel Recorder for a long test drive and are bringing you this first review.

The pockmarked minescape around Kalgoorlie slides by some 8000 feet below. I glance at the small screen cradled on my yoke: it’s reassuring for my passengers (as well as the designated driver!) to see the airplane symbol right on the track to Albany. For a change we have a tailwind as indicated by the wind barbs on the moving map and confirmed by a healthy groundspeed. I check the screen for recent rainfall activity up ahead after having updated the program with the latest Metars and TAFs. It’s time for another radio frequency change to keep in touch with Melbourne Centre as indicated by the passage of a thick blue line across my track on the display.

Life is glorious in the fast lane… and has become a lot easier with the latest release of PocketFMS.
