Toshiba to sell 8GB high-speed SD card in January

Toshiba plans to start selling in January next year an 8G-byte high-speed SD memory card

Toshiba plans to start selling in January next year an 8G-byte high-speed SD (Secure Digital) memory card.

The card will support the "class 4" high-speed data writing specification of the SD Card Association and be able to record data at 6M bytes per second, said Toshiba. That kind of speed plus the high capacity of the card makes it well suited to applications such as video recording using devices such as Matsushita Electric Industrial's (Panasonic's) recently announced HDC-SD1 camcorder.

The camera records high-definition video to an SD card at 6M bps (bits per second). Toshiba's new card should be able to hold about 3 hours worth of such video.

The card will cost about YEN 40,000 (AUD$440) in Japan. It will go on sale in Japan, North America and Europe in early January.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
