Your MacBook, especially if it’s an Air, has fairly limited storage. You can do a few things to deal with this, such as be very selective about the things you keep on your hard drive, and deleting old, unused files. But if you’ve done all that and are still running out, you can expand your memory fairly easily with the HyperDrive MacBook Storage Expander. It fits right into your MacBook’s SD card slot, and contains a MicroSD card of any capacity. It accepts any microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC (including 128GB) memory card, and has a brushed Aluminum finish for a perfect, flush appearance. Your MacBook will look stock, but will have up to 128GB of extra storage, just like that. It’s $29, down from $40, and comes with an 8GB card.

So you’re working up a sweat… when you suddenly remember you have to make a call or pay a workout buddy that five bucks you owed him from last week.

If you’d rather have you stuff on you and don’t mind the extra weight, then you might want to check out the Flip Belt.

It’s a storage belt made specially for exercisers so you can stash your essentials (like your keys, phone, some cash, your credit cards) and non-essentials (like your iPod, comb, some mint) and carry them with you while you work out.

Classy: Bev-Bag Is A Booze-Carrying Purse

bev-bag

The only thing that’s classier than pouring wine out of a cardboard box is pouring it out of a purse. And that’s exactly what you’ll get to do if you buy the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. It’s a normal-looking purse that just happens to house a 28 oz. flask with a hidden spigot on the outside. If you’re at a park, say, and the fancy strikes you, you can easily access your libations just by opening the spigot, tilting the bag and pouring. And when you’re not drinking, the bag itself does have space to carry all the normal… things girls carry in their bags.

It comes in four colours and costs all of $36.

3D Printed James Harden Flash Drive: Pull Beard to Access Data

James Harden Flash Drive

If you’re a fan of the Houston Rockets, then you probably know who that USB–er, guy–up there is supposed to be. He’s James Harden and he’s an NBA player known for his foundational type of play. He’s also known for his ever-present bear. He probably won’t be shaving it off soon, but you can remove his beard anytime with this fun and cleverly designed Harden flash drive.

At first glance, it looks like a mere miniature model of Harden. But pull the beard and you’ll see that it’s actually a USB drive. Clever, clever.

Bed Butler Holds On To Your Things

bed-butler-1

Everything in life seems to be about compromise. One part of your brain would desperately want to keep the cellphone, the books, the contact lenses and the glasses within hand’s reach when you’re in bed. But the other part of your brain just doesn’t want to accept you having to buy a whole nightstand. Space is at a premium, people! The obvious compromise is to get a Bed Butler 2.0. Made from polycarbonate plastic, it securely slips under your mattress to hold itself in place, and gives you room for just about anything you’d want to have by your side. A 3-way adjustable divider even keeps things somewhat tidy. Oh, sure, it’s not the most eye pleasing thing in the world, but if space is limited in your home, there are worse ways to spend $42.

TiVo Unveils Mega, The Largest DVR It’s Ever Sold

tivo-mega-dvr-2014-09-08-01

Even with today’s cheap hard drives, most DVR boxes end up running out of space rather quickly. There’s just an abundance of (questionably intelligent) programming, and a seemingly very eager public. Deleting shows to make space for new ones is commonplace, but TiVo will have none of that. The company is now offering the TiVo Mega to customers: a giant 24TB box that can fit up to 26,000 hours of content (4,000 hours in HD)! With its 6 built-in tuners, you can record up to 5 shows while watching a sixth, all the while streaming to a host of devices, whether they’re mobiles or standalone TVs. By using a RAID 5 configuration with hot-swappable drives, you can be sure that your shows won’t disappear even if a drive does end up failing.

Owning the biggest, baddest DVR on the market won’t come cheap. The TiVo Mega is expected to be available in Q1 2015 for about $5,000.

Bleep Smart Cable Charges Your Phone, Backs Up Your Data

Bleep

People mourn for more than just their phones when they lose them. In fact, most are more worried about the data on their phones rather than the actual devices. Tel Aviv-based Company Musers is well aware of this fact, so they’ve come up with Bleep. It’s a smart cable that backs up your phone’s data while you’re charging it so you’re covered in case you lose your phone or damage it beyond repair. It also protects you against hardware crashes, which sometimes happen when you least expect it.

Bleep can back up your messages, photos, music, videos, contacts, calendar, and app history, among other things. It’s also designed to work with its companion app which is password-protected for your data’s security.

Use It, Don’t Brick It: LEGO Flash Drive

LEGO USB

The long wait is over: the official Lego flash drive is finally here. Sure, modders and DIY-ers have made their own equally awesome Lego-inspired USB drives over the years. But the same can’t be said for the lazy, Lego-loving geeks who don’t have the knowhow or are just too lazy to make their own.

The fully-licensed Lego flash drive looks like several plates were stacked one on top of the other. The coolest part? You can use it like a regular brick and stack whatever you want onto it to make it truly your own.

The Lego flash drive is available in a variety of colors and capacities. Prices for 16GB start at $12.99, and it comes with a bonus Lego brick to boot.
