We’re still not quite sure to make of this odd little square of a Motorola, but it certainly looks like it’s coming our way soon: Italian site Zumo says the Ruth (or Flipout, as we’ve seen it called) is actually the Moto MB511, and it’s due out sometime in June. We’re also told that it’ll have WiFi, GPS, and a memory card slot, but that’s pretty par for the course — what we’re really curious about it how this thing actually works in person. We’ll just have to wait and find out.
Looks like BlockBuster is testing out a new movie rental format. They are allowing the rental to be loaded on to SD cards that the customer brings in. The customer can then play the movie on whatever device that will accept the SD card. These movies use a time-bombed DRM protection so no return is necessary.
I give it about two months until the DRM time-bomb is cracked and you get to keep the movies.
Toshiba has announced their next line of huge SD cards coming in the Spring of 2010.
The 64GB card uses the new SDXC memory standard while the 32GB and 16GB use the older SDHC. There is a catch though, existing cameraâ€™s are not likely to be able to read the format without some modification. For example a flash of the firmware to update the features. But then again some of those hacks require that you have the hacked firmware on the card to load once the camera is started up. No worries though, I am sure some enterprising hacker will come up with something.
