SanDisk has announced a massive upgrade to its microSD line-up, with the arrival of the SanDisk Mobile Ultra 64GB microSDXC card.
SanDisk isn’t the first to announce this type of capacity in the microSD format – Kingmax earns that crown – but it will be the first to market for a whopping $219.99 (£139).
Thanks for the memory
The new cards use the SDXC format which was only announced back in 2009.
Because of this, there are little-to-no phone manufacturers that have come out to say their handsets support the format – most are compatible with the less capacious SDHC variant.
We’ve managed to nab some time with a weird new phone: the Samsung Galaxy S Plus.
We’re not sure that we can even call it a new phone, as it’s essentially the Samsung Galaxy S with a slight tweak under the hood.
The phone itself bears a striking resemblance to the original Galaxy S – it’s the same chassis if we’re honest, apart from the fact the rim around the edge is now a glossy chrome rather than the darker silver offering we were treated to before.
The rest of the phone is almost identical, with the weight ever so slightly lower than its predecessor, which [...]
HTC has finally launched an official Desire Gingerbread update, which will update the HTC Desire to Android 2.3.3.
There’s a pretty big catch, though. This is not your traditional “over the air” update that’s all nice and easy. Instead, users have to download and install Android 2.3 on the HTC Desire manually.
Also, HTC has issued a lengthy disclaimer alongside the Desire 2.3.3 update, in which it claims this is a slightly hard thing to do and that it is “not for general public use” and that the company “disclaims liability” should anything go wrong.
The new iMacs have the super fast Thunderbolt port and Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge Core processors which makes them, well, pretty awesome. What’s not awesome? Apple has made upgrading the hard drive on the new iMacs damn near impossible.
Other World Computing is reporting that “the Apple-branded main hard drive cannot be moved, removed or replaced.” They say it’s because Apple has altered the SATA power connector from a standard 4-pin configuration to a 7-pin configuration. And since hard drive temperature control is regulated with this cable and Apple’s [...]

The Android 2.2 upgrade situation on the Galaxy S has been a veritable rollercoaster of emotions for owners recently, owing in no small part to the seemingly final firmwares that have been briefly posted and pulled from the company’s servers in parts of the world over the past couple weeks. Nordic countries have already sample the goods, but Sammy says that a “new” firmware update will be available in early November in the UK and should hit “all operator versions” of the phone (presumably including the Vibrant, Captivate, Epic 4G, and Fascinate) by the end of [...]
