Amazing Flash Drives


Amazing Flash Drives





Biometric Flash Drives : With fingerprint locking facility.



 



For all the rich people - made of Gold & Platinum



  



 





Edible Flash Drives :)



 



 

 

Something for kids too !



 



Multipurpose : Flash Drive + Hairband





Inflats when data is fed into it ( cool ! )





(i) Longest Flash Drive & (ii) Most Sleek Flash drive





Ow its too scary !
[ Or was it an accident at the factory ? :) ]









Technology + Nature = sustainable development ?



 


Well these are simply for the professionals - One with a stand & another .........just a folder look

Apple's Time Capsule

 Apple  Time Capsule

An  a day keeps crashes away !

System crashes has become very common these days, and backing up the files daily or after adding any new file manually is simply not possible !

So here's the new-era wireless solution from apple  to back-up all your files with minimum efforts from you (just start the machine and done).

Built for Time Machine.
Time Capsule includes a wireless 500GB or 1TB (1000 GB) hard drive designed to work with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. Just set Time Capsule as the designated backup drive for Time Machine, and that’s it. Depending on how much data you have, your initial backup with Time Capsule could take overnight or longer. After it completes, only changed files are backed up — automatically, wirelessly, and in the background. So you never have to worry about backing up again.


USB Support
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office — Mac and PC users alike — take advantage of one centrally located printer. And if you want to share both a printer and an additional hard drive, you can. Just connect a USB hub to Time Capsule. Whatever the combination, Time Capsule divides and conquers.

Works with Mac and PC
Time Capsule with Time Machine in Leopard is the ideal backup solution. But that doesn’t mean Tiger, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users can’t enjoy the benefits of Time Capsule, too. Because it mounts as a wireless hard drive, Tiger and Windows users simply access Time Capsule directly from the wireless network for exchanging and storing files quickly and easily.

Chase the speed of light

Overtake Light On A Bicycle

Everybody knows that speed of light is 3 x 10^6 Km/second (1,86,000 miles/sec.), and no object visible to human eye can ever cross this speed !

But ever thought of overtaking those tiny photons (light particles) on just a bicycle or simply by running on your feet ?

Ofcourse you can never ride a bike or run at that great speed ! But yes you can still cross those light particles, just by bringing down their speed instead of increasing yours :) 

Scientists say that they have slowed light to a dead stop, stored it and then let it go again.

The breakthrough has been achieved by two independent teams of researchers. One was led by Dr Lene Vestergaard Hau, of Harvard University, and the other by Dr Ronald Walsworth, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, both in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US.

Dr Hau surprised the world when she slowed light to about 60 kph (38 mph) by passing it through chilled sodium gas. And one year later, she reported slowing light down to 1.6 kph (one mile an hour) - slower than a slow walk.

When light passes through any denser medium than air like glass/water, it does slow down...but the decreased value is very insignificant.

To stop light altogether, the scientists have utilised a similar but far more powerful effect. The researchers cooled a gas of magnetically trapped sodium atoms to within a few millionths of a degree of absolute zero (-273 deg C). They simply shot a laser through extremely cold sodium atoms, which worked like “optical molasses” to slow the light down.

Uses  other than  making yourself happy by defeating the most impossible thing :-

Slow light could be used to greatly reduce noise, which could allow all types of information to be transmitted more efficiently. Also, optical switches controlled by slow light could cut power requirements a million-fold compared to switches now operating everything from telephone equipment to supercomputers. Slowing light could lead to a more orderly traffic flow in networks. Meanwhile, slow light can be used to build interferometers that are far more sensitive to frequency shift as compared to conventional interferometers. This property can be used to build better, smaller frequency sensor and compact high resolution spectrometers.
