ADATA unveils UFU33B USB Flash Drive and IESU317 external SSD

23 août, par Brian Fagioli[ —]
Despite the surge in cloud storage adoption nowadays, sometimes local storage is still needed -- particularly external drives. After all, fewer consumers are buying desktops these days, instead relying on laptops, tablets, and convertibles. These computer types typically don't allow the addition of a second internal storage drive -- some don't even allow an upgrade of the sole drive. Thankfully, good ol' USB is still here to expand storage. Today, ADATA unveils two new drives that utilize the tried-and-true USB-A connection. One is a flash drive, while the other is an external solid state drive. Neither product is particularly remarkable,… [Continue Reading]

This can occur when the researcher has not informed the vendor, so they don't know about the vulnerability," says Brian Martin, vice president… [Continue Reading]

If you have a son or daughter heading to college this September, I bet you bought them a nice new laptop for their dorm room, right? Of course you did.

22 août, par Mark Wyciślik-Wilson[ —]
