Kingston Technology celebrated hitting the 1 billion dollar mark in Europe, Middle East and Africa last week.
The achievement comes just as they celebrate their 20th anniversary, rounding off a fantastic year for one of the leading digital memory brands. Through the birth of digital cameras, to the evolution of the mobile phone, Kingston has become a mainstay for consumers looking for Compact Flash cards, Micro SDHC, SD cards, and a whole host of other products.
For our support in helping Kingston achieve this milestone MyMemory received a huge cake. Unfortunately we cannot share it with our customers who made the decision to buy Kingston products, but order from MyMemory now and you will receive a free Christmas chocolate!
PayPal Goes Mobile29 November 2007 09:12:55
One of the largest online payment providers is now available on your mobile phone.
This service has been around in the US for a while, but only recently made a full release here in Europe. Looking to take advantage of mobile phones becoming ever more adept, PayPal have tailored their website functionality to suit shoppers on the move. A full range of PayPal options are available, including making payments to friends and family, checking balances, and of course making purchases.
As mobile phones become more widely used for internet use you can expect other well established sites to follow suit.
USB 3.0 Release Announced20 November 2007 14:43:52
Set to hit consumers in 2009, USB 3.0 promises to be 10 times faster than current USB standards.
USB plugs have become one of those things that people take for granted, but without it computing would be far more time consuming and a lot less easy when connecting peripherals. USB 2.0 has been around for a while, but with media files getting bigger the demand for quicker transfer speeds is surely only just around the corner.
USB 3.0 is set to fulfil this demand in 2009, and in emphatic style. With speed 10 times that of current USB, moving from 480Mbps to roughly 4.8Gbps, and the possible added bonus of better power efficiency for USB devices, USB 3.0 will remain the plug of choice for the computer world.
