Blog » Petabytes on a Budget v2.0:Revealing More Secrets It’s been over a year since Backblaze revealed the designs of our first generation (67 terabyte) storage pod. During that time, we’ve remained focused on our mission to provide an unlimited online backup service for $5 per month. To maintain profitability, we continue to avoid overpriced commercial solutions, and we now build the Backblaze Storage Pod 2.0: a 135-terabyte, 4U server for $7,384. It’s double the storage and twice the performance—at lower cost than the original.

Top 10 TED Talks of 2011 To Inspire Tech Startups UI / UX Developer for Initial Consumer Multi-Platform Mobile App Led initial front-end development of Kickbit, an iOS/Android mobile app for early-stage startup Aquto - funded by North Bridge Venture Partners and Matrix Partners - that is pioneering mobile carrier plan data as form of virtual good/currency, making mobile data more affordable for consumers. Working with a UI/UX designer and another developer, I designed and implemented initial build/tooling/workflow process for supporting wide range of device platforms (iOS, Android, web, etc.). I defined and implemented the initial application architecture, played a strong role in UI/UX design, and helped define/implement customer development and usability testing.

This is a guest post by Nick Lewis, a copywriter and SEO analyst for Brighton web design agency Bozboz and sister company Search Optimist. Real time is the buzz in search at the moment. As exciting and interesting as that is, to my mind, something much more interesting is happening at Google. Certain moves made lately suggest they are moving beyond the present and encapsulating the full scope of the past and the future too. Guest post: Googling the future
The Bloch sphere is a representation of a qubit, the fundamental building block of quantum computers. As of 2014[update] quantum computing is still in its infancy but experiments have been carried out in which quantum computational operations were executed on a very small number of qubits (quantum bits). Both practical and theoretical research continues, and many national governments and military funding agencies support quantum computing research to develop quantum computers for both civilian and national security purposes, such as cryptanalysis. Large-scale quantum computers will be able to solve certain problems much more quickly than any classical computer using the best currently known algorithms, like integer factorization using Shor's algorithm or the simulation of quantum many-body systems.
Game theory is a study of strategic decision making. More formally, it is "the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers". An alternative term suggested "as a more descriptive name for the discipline" is interactive decision theory. Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as logic and biology. The subject first addressed zero-sum games, such that one person's gains exactly equal net losses of the other participant(s).
