"Don't buy this hypothesis... They would very likely not have a lack for energy resources since they're traveling the stars. They solved that problem. Being that advanced, they'd also likely be able to synthesize any other resource at a molecular level. So I don't see resources as a motivation, unless humans are the resource (slaves). I could see them being nomads as he imagines, but not looking for resources. More likely just a habitual environment to live, in which case, the Hawking outcome might be the same." Read more

A prototype device that uses "cold atmospheric plasma" to rid hands, feet, or even underarms of bacteria, including the hospital superbug MRSA, has been developed by Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics researchers. The team says that an exposure to the plasma of only about 12 seconds reduces the incidence of bacteria, viruses, and fungi on hands by a factor of a million, a number that stands in sharp contrast to the several minutes hospital staff can take to wash using traditional soap and water.  (New Journal of Physics) (Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8379604.stm)

Sure, your computer doesn't have a USB 3.0 plug, and there's no such thing as a 12x Blu-ray disc for mass consumption just yet, but we shouldn't let those pesky details get in the way of progress. Buffalo just announced the BR-X1216U3, which is the "world's first" (er, not exactly, but anyways...) 12x Blu-ray burner, and which incidentally pulls off its wondrous feats through the power of USB 3.0. Of course, it's backward compatible with USB 2.0, for burn speeds up to 7x, but with 12x on the table that's just slumming it. The drive is out now in Japan for 39,100 yen (about $448 US).

It's been a bumpy road for the OCZ Colossus. We caught our first glimpse of it back in June and posted some exclusive early testing data and pricing back in July. Samples arrived at our storage lab a few months back and we've spent much time evaluating firmware performance. Shipping firmware arrived on another unit and we've been evaluating it for the last few weeks.

Some Memory vendors however felt the need to go really extreme and A-DATA did exactly that. They are now offering the Plus series version 2.0 dual-channel memory kits --- and tucked nicely away in that product line there's even a kit that will that memory to be clocked at 2200 MHZ at CAS 8:8:8:24 1T at low voltage 1.65v.

You may have heard about “flash cache” for Oracle 11.2 and Exadata – the clever trick where the code can use SSD (solid state disc) for data that’s “fairly popular” but not quite popular enough to be kept in the data cache by the LRU. The code works to keep a copy of the more [...]
