Both of the hard drives are for one sized at 500GB and use a USB 3.0 cable in order to establish a fast connection. On top of that, both of the hard drives also take advantage of Pogoplug’s software, allowing the use to access up to 10GB of cloud storage completely free, as well as allowing them to access their...

Lytro unveils a new DSLR-like camera called the Illum

When Lytro first hit the scene with their magical after-refocusing cameras a lot of people suddenly became interested, however the small problem was that no one could really find it that useful when compared with a DSLR or an ordinary point-and-shoot camera, due to its lack of screen and various much-needed features.

The lens will also be joined by a constant f/2.0 aperture, 1/4000 shutter and...
