    James Howells of Wales is sad. Really sad. You see, James threw away a hard drive containing the 7,500 Bitcoins he purchased back in 2009. Now those Bitcoins are worth $7.5-million. If I were James I would be on top of a bridge right now. "Suicide?" Worse -- stuck in traf... / Continue →

    I'm no expert, but that definitely doesn't look like 'HDD Inside'. Some Ruskie, in desperate need for a little extra hard drive space to store all his commie fetish porn, drove all the way to the Russian/Chinese border to pick up a 500GB black-market Samsung. This is what he ... / Continue →

    Available February 24th for a scant $123, this commemorative Michael Jackson "This is It" hard drive is a monster piece of how the hell did this ever become a real product? And to think I couldn't find a single manufacturer willing to roll out my line of Geekologie laptops. I... / Continue →

    Despite what you may have learned in school, a petabyte isn't a byte that lures children into its van with free candy. That's a pedabyte. No, a petabyte is 1 million gigabytes (1,000 terabytes), and this is a graphic depicting how large that is (you have to hit the jump to se... / Continue →

    We've already heard the Imperial March played on an old floppy disk and a Tesla coil, so why not a hard drive? Dum Dum Dum, Dum-te-Dum, Dum-te-Dum. It's like you're really there! You know, in outerspace. Look, there's Darth Vader! Ackkk -- he's force-choking me, quick, som... / Continue →

    Apparently this is some sort of Samsung advertisement showing what you can do when you RAID 24 256GB solid state drives together. The fun includes: achieving a transfer rate of over 2GB/sec, opening all of Microsoft Office in a half-second, opening all 53 programs in the start... / Continue →

    This is a video of some computer porn. Like computer porn in the truest sense: computer parts getting it on with one another. It really didn't do much for me, but that's probably because it's super softcore compared to a lot of the other stuff I've seen. Haha, you know what ... / Continue →
