Hard Drive Shortage

The flooding in Thailand has caused a major shortage in hard drives. Leading manufacturers like Western Digital, Hitachi, Seagate, and Toshiba are all facing direct production issues as a result of the disaster.
On Apple's earnings call this week, CEO Time Cook said that he's "virtually certain there will be an overall industry shortage of disk drives as a result of the disaster." also reports: "Given the uncertainty, we'd recommend anyone planning an HDD upgrade pick one up sooner rather than later, combined with China's rare earth supply cuts, the price of hard drives should jump significantly in the next three months."

Review of India's $35 tablet, "Aakash"

India's version of iPad is selling for a stunning $35 (with state subsidy).
"Aakash"--sky in Hindi--is widely distributed as a learning tool in modern-day educational leader, India.
The new device boasts a word processing, web browsing and video conferencing ability.

Soon, Aakash will find its new market in the American consumers. But, will it be able to gain the trust and reliability it has garnered in its motherland? Daunting hurdles obstruct its release, such as quality assurance requirements of major retailers such as Walmart, Target and Best Buy.

See a explanation of the product by the CEO of its manufacturer, Datawind:

1. Android 2.2 OS
2. 7" display with 800x480 pixel resolution
3. External storage capacity 2GB
4. GPRS, WiFi, SIM card slot, PDF reader, text editor, in-built keyboard, more.

Jobs told Isaacson he had “finally cracked” the secret to making a great television.

There is a big product spoiler in Steve Jobs’ biography.
According to a leaked excerpt in the Washington Post, Jobs says he finally cracked TV:
“He very much wanted to do for television sets what he had done for computers, music players, and phones: make them simple and elegant,” Isaacson wrote.
Isaacson continued: “‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ he told me. ‘It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.’ No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. ‘It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.’”

Micro Sim Cutter is #1

At, we are recently seeing a spike in orders for Micro Sim Cutters and SIM Adapters.

Could it be because of the iPhone 4S?

We also have frequent walk-in visitors to our store, searching for NewerTechnology products.
There was one person who bought 3 Voyager Q's. I wonder why he needed 3.

As shown in their website, we are the only California reseller carrying NewerTechnology items in store. So, if you live in the LA area, we strongly suggest you stop by and pick up what you need rather than ordering it online!

Yesterday, the store owner left for Japan, where he's from, for about a week or so. The ones left are Hikari, Koji, and I, but we'll do our best to serve your needs!
