We’ll add this to the list of, “where’d my UFD go” as Trascend’s T2K UFD (USB Flash Drive) is one of the smallest of it’s kind. Thank God they included a slot and tether to batten her down to our person. Enjoy the T2K in 1, 2 and 4GB capacities. Apparently Transcend uses a special sealing process to bond the plastic case to the internal memory, pcb and connectors.
Included on the UFD is JetFlash Elite software which are eight applications which ship free of charge. Those are: auto login, PC lock, favorites, secret zip, e-mail client, data backup, My JetFlash to easily access files and on-line JetFlash Elite update utility.
Video-Out Card Adaptor is a traveling salesman’s best friend. Load up a MiniSD or MicroSD card with your razor-sharp-sales-pitch and hit the road because this adaptor turns your PDA or SmartPhone into a traveling video station. At one end is the VGA connector and the other a flash memory adaptor to seamlessly transmit video from your device to desktop display or projector. Max resolution isn’t bad either at 1024×768. Connection ability doesn’t stop at VGA either, you also have S-Video and RCA video outs. To really impress those phone jockeys on the sales floor, control the slideshow with included remote. NTSC and PAL supported.
Here is an out-of-the-box solution for turning those high capacity Compact Flash memory cards into SATA hard drives. The CF to SATA hard drive adapter is ideal for using CF as a bootable device containing OS or application data.
The adapter is compatible with Compact Flash type I and II and will provide a full functioning SATA interface.
The adapter card is also fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Linux – in case the application is something other than embedded.
The CF to SATA adapter is $25 without power supply and $35 with power supply so a reasonable price for what you get.
Okay, so UDMA is not U-Da-MAn but the new Lexar card reader is cool enough looking to make them “the man.”
The new UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) is a pop-top design which upon clicking the top cover (say on the Lexar logo) the card reader slots pop up for flash memory access.
The Lexar card reader connects to your PC via mini-to-full-size USB cable. The device readers either CompactFlash compatible or SDHC compatible SD cards.
So just to bring everyone up-to-speed: What is UDMA technology?:

Eye-Fi is the world’s first wireless memory card. This means the flash memory not only stores data but has the ability to transmit the data via WiFi to another host system.
â€œDigital cameras have made it extremely easy to take pictures, but the rest of the process is a hassle,â€ said Jef Holove, chief executive officer of Eye-Fi. â€œThe Eye-Fi Card removes the barriers and lets users get to the fun part of sharing and printing their memories. Weâ€™re putting the magic back into photography.â€
Eye-Fi uses home wireless networks for picture and data download to home PCs and laptops. Simply turn on the camera or device and begin transferring data.

Can’t stand iPods, looking for an iPod alternate? The Tomato MP3 player from PlayTomato is a good front runner. This 2inch TFT LCD screen provides superior viewing quality to most PMP units at 260,000 colors. Plays both video and photo, as well as MP3 and streaming radio.
Not sure about the sound quality as that depends on the compressions engine used. With a MiniSD slot for additional storage the Tomato MP3 player is kinda sweet. On board USB for sync, speakers for listening and mic for recording.

GetFlashMemory posted an article the other day about the world’s first wireless memory card. I was very excited to hear about this technology and recently found a review of the Eye-Fi product.
This is what folks had to say:
Crunch Gear said:
All-in-all, this is a solid device. It is comparable to any 2GB SD card on the market but it gives you the ability to upload your pictures in a much cooler fashion. And if you canâ€™t wait, if you plug a loaded card into the USB reader, it will automatically upload your pictures to your photo service via USB. Yay, all-around convenience – Blake Robinson
So basically Eye-Fi takes a step forward by cutting out the middleman (in this case, a USB cable to your camera, or a media reader for your vanilla SD card), but two steps back in making the assumption that you want all of the tens (or hundreds) of megs of photos on the card uploaded in full res using your cameraâ€™s batteries, and yet donâ€™t need said photos in your photo app, not just some folder – Ryan Block
wireless networks are set up using the Eye-Fi website, not through any sort of interface on your camera itself, and youâ€™re limited to secured WiFi hook-ups rather than being able to take advantage of any open cloud you might pass through. Even with 802.11g, transfers of large resolution images could – and do – take a long time, and given that thereâ€™s no ability to select which to keep and which to throw (unless you delete them prior to connecting) it could be a frustrating experience – Chris Davies
Putting it all together I am glad to see this technology come to market and appears to be an appreciated process for downloading those oh-so-valuable photos.
