Here's The Tiny USB-C Card Reader Your 12-Inch MacBook Desperately Needs

One of the less publicized themes of CES 2016 appears to be ‘ways to fix the 12″ MacBook’. Not only does it come with just a single USB-C port, there’s also no memory card slot.

Seagate's Made One Of The Best Portable Drives Even Thinner

Good-Bye Hard Drives, SSDs Are Getting Cheaper

Solid-state drives are superior to hard drives in every way but one: they’re faster, lighter, and less fragile, but they’re also more expensive. The last one has been the only thing keeping HDDs alive, and that thread appears to be getting thinner by the day.


Sound Waves Could Power The Hard Drives Of The Future

Our need to store data is growing at an astonishing rate. An estimated 2.7 zettabytes (2.721) of data are currently held worldwide, equivalent to several trillion bytes for every one of the 7 billion people on Earth.

Apple Quietly Made The Fusion Drive Much Smaller
