Removable memory is pretty much all alike, isn’t it?

image       According to the Kinoma blog, there can be big differences in quality and speed between one storage card and another. For quality, all you can really do is buy a brand you trust. But for speed, the good news is that there’s now a standard way of classifying the throughput of SD and SDHC cards — the Speed Class.

It’s really easy to understand, too. Class 2 cards guarantee a minimum transfer speed of 2 MB/second, Class 4 cards a minimum speed of 4 MB/second, etc. A card’s Speed Class should be clearly marked as a number in a round “C”, as shown above.

Kinoma recommend that you always buy storage cards that are Class 4 or higher, and normally buy Class 6 cards wherever possible. With a faster card your phone spends less time on data transfers, which translates to more efficient media playback. As an added bonus, copying media between the card and a PC will be faster as well.

File Magic 2.0 for iPhone launched

image SplashData have launched version 2.0 of File Magic for iPhone. File Magic is a file transfer utility that enables you to drag and drop any type of file on your desktop to your iPhone or iPod touch so you can take them with you – like a briefcase. It comes with free desktop companion software that makes it very easy to sync documents, videos, music or pictures from your Windows or Mac desktop to your iPhone or iPod touch.

With the new version, you can now "beam" files wirelessly between iPhone devices. You can also email files as attachments from File Magic on the device, and the company has tightened up security with a password option to protect File Magic access.

By March 6, 2009 Read More → Site Launched!

Regular visitors to the site will know that we always start device review with an unboxing video which invariably includes a quick tour of the product. Just hit the link videos link up at the top of the page to see how many videos we already have.

Love them or hate them there’s no denying the popularity of unboxing videos, YouTube is full of them and even my own YouTube profile has over 3.8 million views.

A few months ago Paul (from MoDaCo) and I were talking about unboxing videos and at the time we said ‘we should really do something with our videos’, as we both have a number of them on YouTube and sitting on a few of the other video hosting services.

After a couple of months of talking about it we finally did something and Paul and I are now pleased to announce the launch of our new site


We are both uploading our unboxing videos to the site (there are still some more to go on) but the site will act as one central place to have a look at past and present videos in, we hope, a cleanly laid out site. Between us we unbox new ‘toys’ every few days so there should be new contnt added fairly regularly.

Of course we’ll still have videos and reviews here on but will be a place to see only unboxing videos!

Please do let us have your feedback. Paul and I are keen to know what you think of the site and the concept itself and why do you think unboxing videos are a love or hate thing??
