Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day

Work is much more fun when you’re wearing a jumper with a penguin on it. Or a reindeer. Or a load of tinsel…That's why the team at Peak have signed up for Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day on Friday the 13th December. Show your support by texting TEAMPEAKJUMP to 70050 to donate £2, or why not get your own workplace involved by signing up for a free fundraising pack on Save the Children's website. Launched in 2012 the annual event has raised over £20 million pounds for children living in poverty in the UK and elsewhere in the world.

SanDisk announce Extreme Pro CFexpress type B

SanDisk have announced a new memory card option that utilises the same form factor as Sony’s current XQD card format. The new SanDisk Extreme Pro CFexpress Card type B surpasses the performance of Sony’s card, with read speeds of up to 1700MB/s and write speeds of up to 1400MB/s. The card has been designed to enable smooth, RAW 4K video capture with sustainable performance.

A range of cameras from Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and Phase One currently support the XQD card format, and these models are expected to be made compatible with the new CFexpress card format with a simple firmware update. Nikon has already announced firmware updates for its Z6, Z7, D850, D500 and D5 that will make the cameras compatible with CFexpress. The new Canon EOS C500 Mark II will use twin CFexpress card slots when it releases later this year, and there is speculation that the new Nikon D6 will utilise twin CFexpress slots too.

64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities have been announced along with a CFexpress card reader that is designed to support USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds and comes with a USB-C connector. We are currently expecting the cards to be available w/c 23rd September 2019.

Get ready for summer with Bug Watch!

We love Summer, but one thing we don't like is the bugs. Fear not, the Bug Co have a great range of anti-mosquito products for the whole family! The Bug Watch combines technology with nature’s most effective mosquito repellent Citriodol. Worn on the wrist like a watch, each Bug Watch includes one anti mosquito BugBlock which is effective for up to 360 hours (or 15 days) from opening. BugBlock forms an effective 360° protective shield around the area of use, masking you from the bugs! Black and White Bug Watches are available in adult sizes, and Blue and Pink in Child sizes. BugBlock refills are available in packs of two. Check out the Bug Watch in our Home & Leisure Section for more information.

SanDisk Announces 4TB USB Flash Drive

CES 2019. Western Digital’s SanDisk brand has announced a prototype for a 4TB USB Flash Drive. Equipped with a USB-C connector, the announcement follows last years' reveal of a 1TB USB Flash Drive – a product that still hasn’t reached market. As the cost of producing such a drive would be currently prohibitively expensive, It’s very much still a proof of concept.

SanDisk has also announced a new Portable SSD. The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD offers transfer speeds of 1GB/s and features IP55 durability. We’re expecting availability in spring, with 500GB, 1T and 2TB versions expected. Also announced is a cloud backup service called Flashback. Flashback will be available for SanDisk Ultra and SanDisk Ultra Fit USB Flash Drives and will offer a cloud back up operation that creates an online copy of the Flash Drives content.

Sony extends its Extra Bass range

The world’s largest consumer electronics show is under way in Las Vegas. With over 180K attendees and 4.4K exhibiting companies, CES 2019 has been the proving ground for new technologies for the last 50 years. The show runs from the 8th to the 11th January and many of our key brands are expected to announce new products.

Sony have announced updates to their Extra Bass Portable speaker range. The SRS-XB12 will replace the existing XB10, while the new SRS-XB22 and SRS- XB32 will feature integrated party lights. All three speakers feature IP67 durability, making them water and shock resistance. The much larger GTK- XB72 also comes with big bass and a light show. The GTK-PG10 seems to target the popular US tailgate-party scene so it’s perhaps less clear whether it will find its way to the UK. It features a water-resistant table top complete with cup holders and a mic input for karaoke.
