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.

Ninja Star USB: Shuriken Save Your Data

Ninja Star USB

The Ninja Star USB isn’t exactly the most discrete flash drive on the market, but it’s definitely one of the most attractive ones out there. As you can see, it’s shaped like a shuriken, the weapon of choice of stealthy ninjas, and while it’s not as sharp as its namesake, it can hold 8 gigabytes worth of data, be it documents, pictures, music, or movie files.

The Ninja Star USB can’t fight deadly computer viruses on its own, but it shuriken keep your data safe as long as you keep it safe. (Pun intended–sorry, I couldn’t resist!) It’s available online for $15.50.
