4K byte disk sectors mean the end of XP based new computers
Hmm, 4TB disks by then will have the same number clusters like 512GB 2.5inch disks today.
That means dare I say, nettop will soon run 4TB disk without problems? Note quite sure, but 2TB will for sure in 2011.
Warning: In case of performance problems in that case simply use 2.5inch SSD as primary disk.And 8GB DRAM with its large parts reserved for I/O cache.
Currently, the 100GB A-DATA S599 is dangerously close to the capacity of the 80GB drives, but the extra 20GB should be just enough to keep a very large majority of users on notebooks satisfied with the capacity.
750GB , 3 times smaller disk storage is already available.

Two programmers made the biggest Ponzi Scheme
The court document specifically alleges that, at Madoff's request, O'Hara
and Perez created programs meant to throw the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission and a European accounting firm off the scent of the fraud from 2003 to 2008.
Something undoubtably man made is finally found on Moon !. No, it is not Apollo lander and it is not a game
The 37-year-old space mystery solved. However, in a strange twist of fate, the rover is actually owned by a British-born gaming entrepreneur.
The astronaut told Wired that there are bonus prizes for teams that can bring images back of any historical site on the moon, and perhaps this could now include images of the Lunokhod 2.
BAD HARDWARE: Lunokhod 2? What about 6 of the Apollo landing sites? Hard to find them though much bigger and their location has been so well known? This pic below has pretty low resolution (4x enlargement), even lower than Lunokhod. Strange. No Lunar rover visible, though the US flag is !? The astronauts took a ran from it to a Lunar ascending stage?

Google is using that machine to push the limits on translation
Last month, for example, it said it was working to combine its translation tool with image analysis, allowing a person to, say, take a cellphone photo of a menu in German and get an instant English translation.
But in the mid-1990s, researchers began favoring a so-called statistical approach. They found that if they fed the computer thousands or millions of passages and their human-generated translations, it could learn to make accurate guesses about how to translate new texts.It turns out that this technique, which requires huge amounts of data and lots of computing horsepower, is right up Google’s alley.
Cisco rolls router for 100 Gbit core networks
AT&T Labs said it has tested the system in field trials as part of its plans to transition from 40 to 100 Gbit/s backbone networks over the next few years. In February, industry groups gave updates about the status of work on first generation100 Gbit Ethernet and faster serial links for follow on products.

Toyota pedal: Is it simply a sticky pedal, or is the trouble more fundamental?
Some are questioning whether electromagnetic interference from devices like cellphones could be contributing to the acceleration problems. But the possibility that a vehicle could go from idling at a traffic light to terrific, uncalled-for and uncontrollable acceleration because the guy next to you at a traffic light answered his cellphone? Or some ghost in the machine or a hacker caused a software glitch that made your car run away and the brakes suddenly simultaneously fail? Not in the least bit likely.

USB 3.0 has finally arrived
There are already a few USB 3.0 devices available. To test them, I used a Lenovo ThinkPad W510 with USB 3.0 built in. I tried out a variety of new devices, including the Buffalo DriveStation USB 3.0 HD-HXU3 external hard drive; a StarTech SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station in combination with my current Western Digital WD Caviar Blue external drive; and a Seagate BlackArmor PS 110 USB 3.0 Performance Kit, a portable hard drive that includes its software on a USB 3.0 ExpressCard.
