Anti-static precision cut foam insert expands functionality of NewerTech StoraDrive case to organize and protect multiple storage media formats, including 2.5″ hard drives or SSDs, Compact Flash cards, Sony memory sticks, SmartMedia cards, and SD/SDHC/SDXC cards

March 30, 2011, Woodstock, IL – Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®) http://www.newertech.com, a leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad™ performance upgrades and accessories, announced today that it has expanded its hard drive accessory line with the introduction of the new US$7.99 MSRP Media Storage Tray for use with the NewerTech StoraDrive™. The Media Storage Tray transforms one of the stackable anti-static StoraDrive cases into a compartmentalized, padded, all-in-one storage solution for protecting and organising multiple digital media formats.

Holds Up To Thirteen Pieces of Digital Media In Multiple Formats:

Each NewerTech Media Storage Tray can hold:
• One 2.5″ PATA/SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive
• Up to two Compact Flash cards
• Up to two Sony Memory Sticks
• Up to four SmartMedia cards
• Up to four SD (Secure Digital), SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity), or SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended-Capacity) cards

Protect and Organise Vital Stored Data in Custom-fitted, Easy Access Compartments

The NewerTech Media Storage Tray expands the functionality of the NewerTech StoraDrive by adding secure, organised storage compartments to hold the most commonly used digital media devices. Made of ESD foam rubber and weighing a mere 0.8oz., the Media Storage Tray provides fingertip access to five different media formats in a single, space saving desktop location.

“The Media Storage Tray is an effective solution to expand the usefulness of a StoraDrive,” said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, NewerTech. “Now, one StoraDrive case can be utilised to hold a full sized 3.5″ drive and the other case can be fitted with this tray to store and organise the five most popular types of flash memory storage formats.”

Enhances Functionality of NewerTech StoraDrive Interlocking Two-Pack Case Solution

The Media Storage Tray insert is the perfect enhancement for the US$9.95 MSRP NewerTech StoraDrive stackable anti-static cases. Economical yet highly functional, StoraDrive is a superior value to basic, single unit competing options on the market. A smooth sliding drawer action provides easy access without disrupting other interlocked cases, and each drive drawer includes a convenient label area for easy content identification. The stackable, interlocking design enables more StoraDrive cases to be added as storage needs grow. Made of anti-static injection molded ABS plastic, the StoraDrive features non-skid rubber feet to keep both case and contents securely positioned.

StoraDrive and Media Storage Tray System Ideal for Users Who Hot Swap & Archive Drives

With today’s low cost of hard drive storage and Plug and Play hot swap drive access products like NewerTech’s US$34.99 MSRP USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter http://www.newertech.com/products/usb2_adaptv2.php or the Voyager Drive Dock http://www.newertech.com/products/hdddocks.php priced starting from US$39.99 MSRP, a greater number of computer users are incorporating the ease and convenience of accessing multiple drives into their workflow.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
