The unfettered rise of flash storage hasn't prevented the hard drive from remaining a mainstay in many devices. Providing ultimate portability is Edge Tech's DiskGo 1" Mini Portable Hard Drive, a 1.9-by-1.9-by-0.6-inch portable hard drive that fits in the palm of your hand. Meanwhile, Archos's new 104, an entry-level MP3 player, ships with a 4GB hard drive; it's the company's smallest portable media player yet.
Hard drives are a commonly upgraded, and this task is made easier--at least for laptops--by Apricorn's EZ Upgrade Serial ATA, a kit that lets you effortlessly transfer data from one Serial ATA notebook hard drive to another. And look for D&M Holdings' ReplayTV PC Edition software, which transforms a PC into a DVR (digital video recorder).
