Revoltec 512MB USB 2.0 File Carrier

Filed under

Reviews

USB Flash drive technology is becoming more popular with each passing day. Flash disks are progressing because of their high speed and ease of use, they are similar to small hard disk drives that fit into your pocket and you can simply and quickly utilize by placing them into an USB slot. They are also getting smaller while their capacity increases and far easier to use, since they do not require any special driver when using a newer operation system. Revoltec has recently released a distinct USB flash drive, the File Carrier, which was given attention on aesthetics, since it comes in 3 colors and features a nice design. I was lucky enough to be sent a 512MB File Carrier drive, a red version, so let us see if it can perform as well as it looks!

The drive comes in a small but nicely designed package, which should be sufficient protection for it since it weighs almost next to nothing. Not much to say about the retail packaging. The package includes a lanyard which is the same color as your drive, an USB expansion cable which I think is not all that necessary since the drive is tiny but it should be convenient for people that have no front USB ports o¬n their case and finally there is a driver and utility CD.

Full Review.

First thoughts on KaOS 2014.12

The latest snapshot of this rolling release distribution includes initial support for UEFI, the KDE 4.14 desktop, systemd version 218 and the Qupzilla web browser. I mention Qupzilla because I feel it is a rare gem in the open source world, a quick capable browser that perhaps does not get the attention it deserves. KaOS is available in just one edition, a 64-bit x86 build. The ISO we download for KaOS is 1.6GB in size. Read more

6 big changes coming to Fedora 22

Hold on to your (red) hats. Fedora 22, the next iteration of the "move fast and break things" version of Linux sponsored by Red Hat, is set to arrive on May 19.

The answer lies with the proposals received by the Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo), whose deadline for proposed changes passed last week. Here are some of the more notable and head-turning proposals for Fedora 22 that seem most likely to make it to the final product. Read more

Sorry, Windows 10 Fans, but This Is What Icons Should Look Like

The icon theme of an operating system has more importance than people might imagine. Microsoft has updated the icons for the latest Windows 10 preview and they actually look terrible and they lack consistency. We listed a few Linux ones for a better comparison. Read more
