     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 9:50A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Sony`s new Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1) rings in at $149? just $10 more than what Barnes & Noble is charging for the Nook Touch, and what Amazon will charge for the ad-free version of the upcoming Kindle Touch. The Reader Wi-Fi is a slick piece of gear; just make sure you like the way Sony lets you download books first, because the Reader Store still needs plenty of work.?"

Hornettek Slipper U3 Hard Drive Docking Station Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drive docks have become as common as external enclosures and it seems everyone is making them. The docks out there all seem the same basic design, but the one I have today is very much different. For review today I have the Hornettek Slipper U3 HDD docking station. The name is interesting but fitting as you just literally slip your hard drive into the dock. The Slipper can use either 2.5? or 3.5? drives and is USB 3.0 capable for maximum transfer speeds. "

a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out OCZ`s universal answer to SSD caching on any system ... *OCZ Technology?s Synapse Cache 64GB SSD Reviewed** * For those that don?t know, SSD caching (Intel Smart Response) is a feature built in to Intel Z68 Sandy Bridge motherboards where you can add a smaller volume SSD to your existing platter based hard drive to increase overall system performance.

But, what about users who don?t have an Intel Z68 based system? * * *"
