Mobile Edition Half of all enterprise IT managers have implemented or plan to implement solid state storage, research shows. There's a well-worn saying in the storage world to describe new and emerging technologies, when no one is quite sure what the actual adoption rate will be: "There's more written about it than on it." In many ways solid state storage (notice I didn't only say SSD, and that's deliberate) has felt a little like that over the last few years. There's been lots of talk and some amusing puns ('spun up about solid state', 'solid results', 'no-spin zones' etc.), but is this solid state stuff really destined to matter in the big scheme of things? More narrowly, we all know solid state matters in consumer electronics, but will its abilities--performance, compactness, low power usage--translate into the enterprise market?

"I want to talk to Steve Jobs about this. I want a transparent iPhone!" said Yi Cui, battery expert extraordinaire and an associate professor of materials science at Stanford who worked on the project.
A Privacy Manifesto in Code: What If Your Emails Never Went to Gmail and Twitter Couldnt See Your Tweets? - Alexis Madrigal - Technology A new tool under development by Oregon State computer scientists could radically alter the way that communications work on the web. Privly is a sort of manifesto-in-code, a working argument for a more private, less permanent Internet. The system we have now gives all the power to the service providers. That seemed to be necessary, but Privly shows that it is not: Users could have a lot more power without giving up social networking.

A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject.
