ExpressBox 3T

Laptops aren’t exactly renowned for their expandability, especially those beautiful slivers of aluminum from Apple. (Simply upgrading the RAM on your Air requires you break out the soldering iron.) Magma has a solution, the ExpressBox 3T. This silver case houses its own 220w power supply and a trio of PCIe 2.0 slots. Two of those slots are of the x8 variety (though one can hold an x16 card) while the third is scaled back to x4. And they all talk to your notebook via that wonderful little port known as Thunderbolt. It even comes with a carrying case which, we suppose, makes this hunk of metal “portable,” but we certainly wouldn’t want to lug it around very often. Sadly there’s no info just yet about price or release date, but we do have a gallery of images below and the complete PR after the break.

There’s a fresh new twist in the never ending Apple / HTC patent battle. The Taiwanese handset manufacturer is hitting back against Cupertino using newly obtained firepower: nine patents picked up from Google last week. The patents, which began life under Palm, Motorola and Openwave Systems, were transferred to HTC on September 1st. So much for the whole sitting down and not suing thing.

Part skateboard, part Segway, part tank, the DTV Shredder ($TBA) is one of the craziest contraptions we’ve seen this year. It features a normal skateboard deck and trucks, which are mounted to a powerful motor, and two tank threads — mounted below and to the sides of the deck — capable of going over snow, sand, dirt, ice, and nearly any other non-paved surface you can think of at speeds of up to 30 mph, or plenty fast enough to give you some gnarly injuries should you happen to shred a bit too hard.

Pack your camper with every dish, pot, and pan you can think of with the GSI Pinnacle Camper Set ($120). This complete set includes Teflon with Radiance-coated non-stick pots, a frying pan, insulated mugs, plates, bowls, a pot grip, and a welded sink, all of which you may or may not need depending on if you’re camping in your own backyard or so deep back in the woods that your GPS unit gives up hope of finding its way home.

The first wave of tablets following in the iPad’s footsteps are (almost) here. Powered by the Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ($TBA) sports a 7-inch TFT-LCD display (1024 x 600), front (1.3 MP) and rear (3 MP) cameras, full HD video playback (DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264), and comes in 16GB and 32GB models. It’s also got built-in 3G HSPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. It will be launching in Europe later this month and in the U.S. in the “coming months.”

I’ve been looking everywhere for a small USB drive with high capacity to carry with me on my keychain (you never know when you’ll need it)
The LaCie MosKeyto redefines portable. The ultra-tiny Mac/Windows-compatible USB 2.0 flash drive, which you can just keep plugged in all the time, measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams. Available in 4GB ($18), 8GB ($28) and 16GB ($TBA) capacities.

I also found another one which is reasonably priced and the size is perfect.
