World's Largest USB Drive

The video below shows off the world's largest USB drive. We're not talking Gigabytes or Terabytes here. We're talking Megabytes. The thing is huge though and is basically an over-sized mechanical hard disk drive that can now be run over a USB interface. It's much larger than the computer it sits beside and holds an amazing 10MB.

No Comcast + Time Warner Cable Merger

The $45 Billion dollar Comcast and Time Warner Cable merger is officially dead. Comcast and TWC are the two biggest cable and broadband companies in the United States and there were major concerns about what losing that compeition would do to the industry. This is probably good news for consumers and so far I haven't seen too many tears shed over the failed merger. The Verge has more on this story.

Comcast has officially abandoned its $45 billion merger with Time Warner Cable, after encountering resistance from regulators. "Today, we move on. Of course, we would have liked to bring our great products to new cities, but we structured this deal so that if the government didn't agree, we could walk away," said Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian Roberts in a statement. "Comcast NBC Universal is a unique company with strong momentum. Throughout this entire process, our employees have kept their eye on the ball and we have had fantastic operating results. I want to thank them and the employees of Time Warner Cable for their tireless efforts. I couldn't be more proud of this company and I am truly excited for what's next."

Digital Storm @ CES 2013

We stopped at Digital Storm to check out their latest two products that they have refreshed and beefed up for this coming year.  The Aventum is a beast that has been developed entirely in house and offers exceptional performance.  The system will start at $5,000 and come with a single CPU and a single graphics card.  It will also come liquid cooled with some amazing thermal features.

As an upgrade option, you can get the liquid cooling built with nickel plated copper tubing for a completely custom look.  Digital Storm plans to start selling this system in March of this year and the upgrade options are almost endless.  If you want to spend $10,000 on a system, you’ll be able to drop in four graphics cards, dual Xeon CPUs and a lot more.

Digital Storm has also recently upgraded their Bolt system as well.  We found the Bolt system to be very interesting.  It’s a “Micro Tower” that offers some pretty impressive features including full Core i7 CPU support as well as up to a GTX 670 graphics card from NVIDIA.  This is a tiny system that is big on performance and has a lot of upgrade options as well.  The Bolt will likely be available with custom paint in the near future as well.  You can see in the image below just how awesome this would be.

It’s pretty amazing that this system has so many upgrade options for such a small system.  You don’t have to sacrifice performance for size here as it supports two 3.5” HDDs or a single 3.5” HDD and two 2.5” SSDs.  Make sure to check out the video below for all the details.
