Canary Introduces 'Weatherproof' Flex HD Security Camera

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

Home security company Canary on Tuesday announced several new products, including a "weatherproof" HD security camera dubbed the Flex, which can be used wire-free or plugged in.

Built to "withstand the toughest elements," the $200 Flex connects to Wi-Fi and streams live or recorded video to your phone, and sends a notification when it catches unfamiliar activity inside or outside your home. Available in black or white, the camera has a 360-degree swivel base, letting it stand upright or be mounted to the wall, and a rechargeable battery that promises "months of wire-free use." It integrates with the existing Canary app, and can stand alone or work alongside other Canary devices.

SanDisk just dropped the world's largest SD card

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

Who needs a delete button? SanDisk on Tuesday morning showed off the world’s largest SDXC card with a whopping 1TB of storage. Yes, terabyte.

SanDisk unveiled the 1TB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC card to kick off the first day of the European photography show Photokina. The new card essentially doubles the capacity of the largest SDXC cards available today.

“Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD card and today we are enabling capacities of 1TB,” said SanDisk’s Dinest Bahal.

Those who need this kind of capacity in a camera, video camera, or drone will have to wait, however. SanDisk used a prototype of the card for its demo and the company didn’t know when the card would actually be available for sale.

Pictures of the card supplied to the media before the demo featured a “sanitized” card, without any indications of its speed. The card’s “SDXC I” logo provides a hint, however, as those cards are known to hit transfer rates of 50MBps or 104MBps. It also bears the Extreme Pro branding, which is SanDisk’s top-shelf line, so performance should be fairly good.
