I am sure that there are tons of people out there that have old 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch HDDs lying around that are doing nothing other than collecting dust. Those drives are probably still good and you just don't want to trash them. Trendnet has a couple new external HDD enclosures that will let you take those old drives and make blazing fast external storage out of them. The new enclosures include the Trendnet TU3-S35 and the TU3-S25.

The two enclosures have the same features with one notable exception. The S35 supports 3.5-inch SATA I or II HDDs and the S25 supports only 2.5-inch SATA I and II HDDs. Both of the enclosures connect directly to the USB 3.0 port offering up to 5Gbps of transfer speed. The enclosures will support drives with up to 1TB or more of storage space.

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Tue, Nov 2 2010 10:15 PM CDT

This is a bit of an added news bit to something I posted a few days ago in regards to the so close we can smell it cooking on the BBQ - GeForce GTX580 card. Some of the info was missing, and other sites are filling this gap.

We now have a "close to confirmed" TDP of 244W - slightly lower than the 480's rated 250W. Texture fillrate was flagged as one of the bottlenecks of the GTX480 - with the 580 effectively doubling the TMU to 128 - other than these fixes, it's a "fixed" release of the GTX480, something that the GTX480 was meant to be at launch, but cut down for various reasons.

Obviously this isn't surprising - as there's not many tablets out there yet that compete with the iPad... but there's some juicier information.

"Global tablet shipments grew 26 percent sequentially to reach 4.4 million units in Q3 2010," said Peter King, Director at Strategy Analytics. "Apple was the clear market leader during the quarter, capturing an impressive 95 percent share with the iPad and beating Android into second place."

Apple puts the smack down on tablet market

Shane McGlaun | Mobile Devices | Tue, Nov 2 2010 10:00 AM CDT

Apple is dominating the market for tablets right now. An argument can be made that the main reason for its domination is simply that there are very few alternatives for shoppers to choose from. That lack of alternatives will soon be changing with a number of new tablet computers due to hit the market in the coming months, with several of them set to lend before Christmas.

The research firm also states that the total market for tablets grew to 4.4 million units for the quarter running July to September. The market for tablets the previous quarter was 3.5 million units.

AMD 69xx are nearly here

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Mon, Nov 1 2010 7:07 PM CDT

There may be lots of news about the GTX580 - but at the moment, it's nothing but a rumor, and quite possibly a paper launch, whereas AMD have some actual silicon ready to go with AIBs getting Cayman chips right now.

Supposedly, AIBs have got the Cayman's - which come with 6GHz GDDR5, which means the memory clocks will end up somewhere inbetween 5.5 and 6GHz.

There are various other rumors around the web, but within the next 2 - 4 weeks we should know who has been fibbing, and who will eventually get the best launch and get GPU's into customers hands in time for Santa to come to town.

Huntkey has a new computer chassis that is aimed at the user who lives or works in a high radiation and interference environment that wants to shield their hardware from that radiation. The case looks cool in addition to blocking radiation interference from your gear and blocking interference from inside the case for getting out as well. The new chassis is called the Shield H405.

The case has a matte black finish and the company says that it came up with the case design by looking at heavy duty trucks. The case is designed to give the user a sense of power and defense capability according to Huntkey. I don't know about any feeling of power and defense, but it looks cool enough. It also has a mesh front panel and an integrated handle on top.

Aperion Audio outs new Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System

Shane McGlaun | TV, Movies & Home Theatre | Mon, Nov 1 2010 12:00 PM CDT

The thing that bothers me the most about surround sound is the wires that have to go to the rear speakers. They clutter the room and in some rooms running wires is very hard to do. In this instance, the user can opt to skip the rear channel speakers or they can just run the wires across the room and deal with the looks. Another option is a wireless rear speaker system and Aperion Audio has a new offering that needs no wires.

The system is called the Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System and it has a pair of rear speakers, the transmitter, and the wires needed for connecting it to your receiver. The speakers each have a 4.5-inch woven fiberglass woofer and a 1-inch tweeter. The enclosure is made from MDF and has a ported enclosure. The enclosure measures in at 9.8" H x 6" W x 6.3" D and weighs 15 pounds. The frequency response is 55Hz to 20kHz.
