Micro USB Car Charger

car usb charger

There was a time when mobile phones were the size of bricks, you carried the battery pack in a shoulder bag and you had to charge them overnight – if you want to see one, you need to go to a museum. Thanks to the Micro USB Car Charger, you can drive over to see them and charge your iPod, iPhone or any other portable USB device as you go!

You will not find a more compact or portable car charger! In fact, you’ll hardly notice that it’s even there – until you need it, when you’ll be singing its praises while your favourite device is sucking the juice.

Not much bigger than the size of your thumb (depending on how big your thumb is of course), the Micro USB Car Charger’s sleek design will blend in with your car’s interior. And the cool blue LED ‘X’ lets you know that it’s got power.

You can use it for your iPod/iPhone (iPhone / iPod charging cable included), Blackberry and any other device that can charge via USB – in fact, there’s probably not one person you know (unless your grandad’s still got his brick phone) that couldn’t use the Micro USB Car Charger, which makes it a great gift for friends, workmates, family members, secret santas and of course, yourself! It’s the gift-that-fits-all!

Why get yourself tangled up with cords? Why lug around your 240V charger hoping you can find an outlet someone will let you use? The Micro USB Car Charger is the only charger you’ll ever need whilst on the move.

GoldKey USB Security Token Encrypts Your Documents

golden USB key

Great things do come in small packages
One of the most powerful security tokens on the market is also the smallest. GoldKey’s security processor, encryption engine, and hardware random number generator all fit in a case not as big as your fingertip. Two dimensions of the key are as small as allowed by USB plug standards and the last is just long enough to grab easily. This token fits on your key chain, in your key pouch, or in your pocket without the bulge.

Impenetrable
GoldKey is not your average hardened device. From its stainless steel case to its waterproof epoxy, GoldKey is more durable than your everyday USB token. Inside, the GoldKey is filled with an industrial grade epoxy that not only seals the internal circuitry water tight, but deters tampering and provides added strength.

Unlike other security devices, GoldKey does not require a battery for power, it instead draws power from the USB port. This means it can last and last in the field.

Multi-Factor Authentication
With GoldKey, at least two factors of authentication are required. The GoldKey token must be present (Something you have), and you must know your GoldKey PIN (Something you know). This provides a much higher level of security over traditional password-only authentication methods. Upon request, GoldKey also supports biometric fingerprint authentication as a third factor (Something you are).

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for all encryption
AES has been chosen by NIST as the official replacement for the outdated DES. It has now become the symmetric encryption algorithm of choice. GoldKey utilizes AES with 256 bit keys (AES-256) for all encryption. Weaker RSA keys and shorter key lengths are never used.

A GoldKey Combo Key can run standalone or can be registered to any Master Key for file sharing and backup. (Note: When running standalone, there is no way to recover encrypted data if you lose your Key or password).

GoldKey provides four powerful security solutions in a token small enough to carry on a keychain – a literal ‘key’ that must be used to access your data.

Data encrypted by a GoldKey can be stored on many kinds of electronic media including flash drives, DVDs, and network storage servers. GoldKey presents secure data storage, transportation, and backup options, inter compatible with Windows and Mac.

Using state of the art encryption and a built-in, standards-compliant smart card, GoldKeys are versatile dual-factor authentication tokens fit for a personal or corporate environment.

Using GoldKey:

Encrypt an unlimited amount of information, on any number of computers
Manage an unlimited number of keys using Masters and Grand Masters
Protect data on laptops, flash drives, servers, and backup media
Avoid embarrassing and costly data breaches
Comply with government regulations
Collaborate and share files

Why GoldKey?
GoldKey products are designed and manufactured in the USA, allowing us to provide a higher level of quality assurance and support.
The use of GoldKey imposes no limits, contractually or otherwise, on data encryption or user management.
When it comes to protecting your data, there’s just no room for compromise.
There are no ongoing contracts or license fees.

Add two USB ports to a standard outlet

usb outlet

A product that addresses the shortcomings inherent with getting rid of the standard plugs altogether: a wall plate with both standard and USB plugs. Problem solved – and it only costs $10.

Michael Lowdermilk sent this in to our tips e-mail address with the line, “I wanted to get your feedback on this new product I’ve been working on. It’s a custom wall outlet with built in USB charge ports.”

My feedback is as follows: move forward with this. It is a good idea. I will probably eventually buy one.

The “TruePower UCS Power Outlet With Built in USB Ports” is available for pre-order at FastMac.com and is expected to ship early next year. Apparently it’s “currently waiting on final UL Approval,” which is a good thing for safety’s sake. Buy it here
