  1. PhotoFast may not be a brand you’re familiar with but the company’s new mobile charging cable may change that. In addition to its standard duties as a charging cable, the aptly-named MemoriesCable contains internal flash-based storage that’s suitable for all sorts of applications.

    The MemoriesCable is a slim (13mm long, 9.4g) USB 3.0 charging cable for Lightning connector-equipped iOS devices. Its internal storage – offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities – can be used to locally back up contacts, calendars, photos, music, videos and more via its companion app, I-FlashDrive ONE.

    As demonstrated in the painfully awkward marketing video, the MemoriesCable can also be used as a portable flash drive of sorts to transport additional music, video and photos on the go. Media can be streamed directly from the external storage device and even pushed out to a television using AirPlay.

    If you’re the type that isn’t keen on storing everything in the cloud for security purposes, this could be a solution worth checking into.

    The MemoriesCable is compatible with the iPhone 5 and newer, both models of the iPad Air and the iPad mini. The iPod is also listed as a compatible device in the tech specs although specific models aren’t mentioned. You’ll need iOS 7 or later, Mac OS X 8.x or later or a Windows PC running Windows XP or newer, the company says.

    Official pricing hasn't been revealed although I did find the 64GB model on Amazon listed at $159.99.

    Thank God this overpriced gimmick is only compatible with Apples overpriced gadgets. iSheep may be the only saps who'll think it's the bees knees.

    Considering how often I see people losing charger cables or breaking them this seems like a bad idea, although it seems like an AWESOME money making opportunity.

    Yep but it is an all-in-one, if you are willing to pay for having the one device that does all. The lifetime of the device is a bit irrelevant, when the marketing value is all-in-one. That's the way it has always been. You decide to live with the unfortunate realization of loosing the whole device, if the one part you do use fails.
