[12:30 PM] USB PC Card Reader/Writer Released

Antec Inc. has announced the PhotoChute 3 for iMac and G3 professional users. The PhotoChute 3 is a PC card reader/writer for users of digital cameras with smart cards, as well as other media forms. Many digital cameras use "cards" as film, rather than a floppy or other type of media. According to Antec:

PhotoChute 3 is an external USB-based PC card reader/writer that provides high-speed, bi-directional image and data transfer capabilities for users of Apple's iMac and Power Mac G3 computers. With the PhotoChute 3 for iMac, now iMac/G3 users can transfer captured images at speeds up to 60 times faster than the standard serial port connection offered by most digital cameras, and up to 5 times faster than cameras with a USB interface. PhotoChute 3 for iMac fully supports SmartMedia, Type I/Type II ATA Flash cards, and CompactFlash cards, and also provides the freedom to use any of these types of cards simultaneously. Users can easily write or read files and images to or from the storage cards, and transfer files and images from one to the other as well. This makes the PhotoChute 3 iMac an ideal device for downloading images from digital cameras, and also for sharing data between computers.

PhotoChute 3 for iMac is available for US$139. You can find more information on PhotoChute 3 at the company's web site.
