The first of its kind, SanDisk says read speeds of up to 450MB/s and write speeds of up to 350MB/s make it the world's fastest memory card, period. Speed isn't the only improvement either, as the cards claim a tougher, <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget">pinless design</a> and even unique serial numbers that owners can register with customer support. For now however, its use is going to be quite limited, as the only camera ready for it is the just-announced <a href="">Arri Amira</a>, although the XT and Classic cameras can also use it with an adapter. For those still using traditional CompactFlash storage for their 4K shooting the company is stretching the limits there too, with a new 256GB card that it says has the highest capacity ever. That extra storage will cost you however, with a price of $1,809 for the new 256GB version. There's no word on a price for the CFast 2.0 cards or their USB 3.0-equipped reader, but pro videographers in the US and Europe should be able to find them soon at specialty shops and Arri-authorized locations.</p> <p>Filed under: <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget" rel="tag">Storage</a></p> <p><strong><a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget#comments">Comments</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Source:</strong> <a target="_blank" href="">SanDisk (1)</a><!--//-->, <a target="_blank" href="">(2)</a><!--//--></p> <p>Source: <a href=""></a></p><p><a href="">HEWLETT PACKARD CO</a> <a href="">HEARTLAND PAYMENT SYSTEMS</a> <a href="">GOOGLE</a> <a href="">FORMFACTOR</a> </p>

Apps of the Week

Take a look at what the Android Central writers are using on their devices this week

Another week, another great set of app picks from the folks here at Android Central. If you're new to this, we take time each Saturday afternoon to show off one app from each of the AC writing staff and see why they've been using it on their own devices. This isn't necessarily meant to be the top selling apps list for the week, but more of a discovery of the diamonds in the rough that the rest of us may have missed.

Hang with us after the break where we show off a few different games, a tool that will help you game and a few odds and ends.

Leaked Kindle Fire render lends credence to incoming refresh

The purported press image matches previous leaks in bezel size and design, but lacks the front-facing camera Amazon introduced with the <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget">Kindle Fire HD</a>. This leads us to suspect that the render is of a <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget">non-HD model</a> of Bezos' latest tablet. The flagship model is rumored to have a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, the aforementioned camera upfront and an OS based on Android 4.2.2. We're still waiting for Amazon to give the official word of course, but for <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget">Kindle</a> users waiting for an upgrade, it's something to salivate over.</p> <p>Filed under: <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget" rel="tag">Tablets</a>, <a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget" rel="tag">Amazon</a></p> <p><strong><a href=";utm_medium=feed&amp;ncid=rss_semi&amp;utm_campaign=Engadget#comments">Comments</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Source:</strong> <a target="_blank" href="">@evleaks (Twitter)</a><!--//--></p> <p>Source: <a href=""></a></p><p><a href="">SPANSION</a> <a href=" city/1">SONUS NETWORKS</a> <a href=" john silver/1">SONIC AUTOMOTIVE</a> <a href="">SKYWORKS SOLUTIONS</a> </p>

Chrome for iOS updated with enhanced search options including pronoun support for voice

The last time Google updated Chrome for iOS, users got the ability to open links to YouTube and Maps directly in their respective apps instead of in the browser. Now the little browser that could has just received its latest upgrade, bringing with it new enhanced search options. These new search features are a welcome addition for regular Chrome for iOS users:

  • Do a search and click a result. Not what you wanted? Now when you hit the back arrow, your search results instantly reappear, ready for you to choose the next link.
  • Improvements to Single Sign On with other Google Apps.
  • View your data savings in Bandwidth Management Settings. This feature is being rolled out and will be available to all users over time.
  • Voice search pronoun support. Try queries like: "Who is the president of the United States?" followed by "Who is his wife?"

The Chrome for iOS update is available for free on the iTunes store, and as always it will appear in Software Updates for those who currently own the app.

Chrome for iOS updated with enhanced search options including pronoun support for voice originally appeared on TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Thu, 12 Sep 2013 14:45:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
