Where’s the go faster stripe?

LaCie External 250GB Hard DriveI must admit I’m not overly impressed with the look of the new 250GB portable hard drive from LaCie. What’s even more surprising is that it’s designed by Porsche but then I’m not a lover of their cars either. But the drive’s stats do stand up nicely and I’m a sucker for numbers!

It can transfer data at 480 Mb/s over its USB 2.0 connection or at 400 Mb/s across the FireWire interface, spins round at 5,400 and is a slimline 17 x 76 x 129 mm. But the winner for me is the 6.35 ounces that this baby weighs – nice! The drive is already pre-formatted for both Macs and PCs, so plug it in and away you go! Unfortunately it’s priced at US$270 which is a lot more than similar spec’ed externals but then it is a Porsche hard drive :)

Do not touch

July 12th, 2007

Do Not TouchYou may remember my confusion a few days ago over whether the TEAC MP-600 media player had touch screen functionality or not. French language site BestofMicro had mentioned it in their write-up of the MP-600, yet no mention of it was made on the TEAC website.

Anyway, I decided to get the word from the horses mouth, well at least TEAC’s. The long and short of it is that you may touch the screen but it’ll do bu**er all. So that sort of makes the MP-600 more of a run of the mill media player that’s a bit short on memory rather than a snazzy touchy feely one. How sad.
