Intel's new SSD 730 Series available for pre-order

Intel has made its new Solid-State Drive 730 Series available for pre-order. A powerful hard drive intended for gaming and heavy work use, the SSD 730 Series offers low latency and a high throughput, allowing for quick response times. Able to complete up to 70GB of writes per day as opposed to the industry typical 20GB, the drive is capable of delivering consistent performance across data types. Interested buyers can now pre-order the SSD 730, with its official release being March 18.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit sport headphones announced

Unveiled at MWC last week, Plantronics has announced its BackBeat Fit sport headphones. Offering a sweat-resistant and highly visible housing, the headphones stream music using Bluetooth. Its reflective markings and bright colors offer night visibility, and external sounds can still be heard while wearing the headphones. The BackBeat Fit also includes a built-in microphone for making and taking calls, with music pausing and resuming accordingly. Priced at $130, BackBack Fit will be available in April in green or blue.
