LaCie is now shipping the fastest, highest-capacity Thunderbolt 2 storage solution

LaCie 8big Rack Thunderbolt™ 2LaCie has started shipping the 8big Rack (originally announced back in April) that features Thunderbolt 2 speeds and capacities of up to 48TB in a 1U rackmount size. That’s twice the density of the typical rack storage and you can daisy chain as many as 36 LaCie 8big Racks to a single Mac Pro. It’s also dramatically easier to set up than Fibre Channel DAS solutions, while featuring hardware RAID 5/6 and fully redundant disks, fans, and PSU.

The 8big Rack is also designed with 4K video workflows in mind. It makes it easier for videographers to work directly from RAW files while seeing edits in real time.

Originally announced at the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters Convention, the LaCie 8big Rack 48 TB ($4,999.99) is available now through LaCie and its resellers. The product is also available in four–disk 12 TB ($1,699.99) or eight–disk 24 TB (2,799.99) configurations. Thunderbolt 2 is compatible with the same cables and connectors as first–generation Thunderbolt.

Video pros, meet the king of storage for 4K workflows:

Mo-Fi: Powered Hi-Fi Headphones with Built-in Amp by Blue

Blue Microphones Mo-Fi Powered High-Fidelity Headphones with Integrated Audiophile AmplifierBlue, the makers of the Yeti USB Microphone, have just introduced Mo-Fi: the first headphone that delivers real audiophile performance and sound quality from a variety of devices.

Mo-Fi is no ordinary headphone. From the multi-jointed design to earcups shaped—gasp—like ears, we completely reimagined the form and functionality, without any preconceived notions about what headphones are “supposed” to look like. The result feels less like a headphone, and more like a high-quality instrument you can wear. Some call it radical. We just call it Mo-Fi.

The Mo-Fi has an integrated audiophile amp and custom-matched drivers that deliver unrivaled sound. They might look different, but they feature a revolutionary personalized fit for superior comfort and performance. These are powered headphones, meaning they feature a built-in amp that allows for a much stronger and louder signal no matter what the audio source. They also come with a 1 meter cable with an attached MFi mic, a 3 meter cable and a 6.5mm to 3.5mm adapter.

I’m big on aesthetics, design, style, quality, and substance, and you immediately have the sense that a lot of attention was paid to these headphones. They are awesome.”

- JASON BENTLEY Music Director, KCRW

“America’s most influential radio DJ” – Billboard Magazine

You can find the Mo-Fi on Amazon for $350. Here is a full list of features:

94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball (youth and men’s sizes): $200 shipped (Reg. $250)

94fifty-smart-basketball

Amazon offers the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball for $199.99 with free shipping. That’s $50 below list and a match for the best price we’ve ever seen.

It may not make you as sick as King LBJ, but the plethora of stats this basketball and app can provide will certainly up your game: dribble force/speed, shot speed, shot backspin, shot arc, more. You can even pair it up with Google Glass to have quicker access to this information.

Other features include wireless battery charging, auto sleep mode, and up to 8 hours of battery life.

It’s fast – about 100 millisecond speed from action to visual display. The ball measures any forces applied to it – spin, acceleration, you name it. A full 360 degree view of the ball – and the player that moves it. The ball is going to give you data and feedback about your game that is smart, precise, and freakishly accurate. Yeah, it’s that good.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars by dozens of Amazon reviewers. Adding that it’s “not a gimmick or fancy toy.”
