Posted by geeknews at 8:18 PM on January 19, 2011
AlessiTab

Most of the tablets we saw at CES were meant to be for those on the go. The AlessiTab is actually meant to stay in the home – The Kitchen to be exact. It’s unique design automatically acts as a stand in multiple variations. The AlessiTab sets on a charging pad so you can keep the device ready for use.

Running on Android, the AlessiTab can hold all your favorite recipes, video on how to make favorite dishes or just to surf the internet. Use the tablet to remote control the TV or better yet, pull out the antenna and the AlessiTab also becomes a Digital TV receiver.

The Italian design makes it a sleek and stylish item to have around the house. The gravitational center knows which way the tablet is set.

PopDrive Portable RAID Solution

Posted by geeknews at 7:54 PM on January 19, 2011
PopDrive

If you have a USB external drive and not backing up your data from it, you are putting your data at risk. A USB hard drive could crash just as easily as a Notebook or Desktop hard drive – if not, faster.

PopDrive has another solution. Dual drives in a RAID 0 configuration. One drive collects and the other drive mirrors. That way if the first drive breaks down, the other one takes over.

PopDrive is a drive that can work with USB 2.0 or eSATA. It takes 2 – 2.5 inch drives and transfer up to 3GB/s (eSATA). The drives mirror when connected to the PC or Mac.

Perfect for home or office, this drive could be a great asset to hold data for clients. It’s size makes it perfect for those who have portable offices.

Lexmark Genesis

Lexmark Genesis

Lexmark is upping the anty in printer and scanning technology. They have really hit one out of the ballpark with the Lexmark Genesis. Instead of a scanner, the Genesis has a 10 MP camera. The instant preview gets you an idea of your scan in 3 seconds.

This is the first printer of it’s type that has an upright design to save on desk space. All the standard USB and memory card support come with the scanner.

You manage the printer through the 4.3″ touch screen. You will be able to Fax, copy, scan fax or send to the web.
