The ORB has arrived!

The ORB - a 2.2GB removable storage drive in the 3.5in form factor - has been released to market in Australia.

The $399 drive, which comes in both external and internal models, has been developed by Castlewood - a US company established by Syed Iftikar, the founder of storage company SyQuest Technology and the co-founder of Seagate Technology.

The ORB utilises MR (magneto-resistive) head technology, a performance improvement for disk drives, which previously had not been used in the removable storage market, the company claims. And according to Castlewood, the ORB offers a maximum sustained data transfer rate of 12.2Mbps.

Media for the ORB is priced at $69 per disk (one disk is included with the drive at purchase).

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
