  1. Maxtor has introduced 300GB Diamond Max 10 drives. These drives have the benefit of using single chip Serial ATA technology, and also include native command queuing for dual processors and also come with a 16MB buffer for all models over 250GB.

    Meanwhile, it looks like the MSI Geforce 6800 Ultra (probably a pretty expensive card) has some serious problems with freeze ups that can only be fixed by flashing the card's BIOS.

    Infected PCs continue to have problems with the MyDoom variant MyDoom-S, when their silly users are silly enough to fall for the trick of opening an infectious attachment called photos_arc.exe.

    And, in very interesting news, AMD may well ship a 4-core CPU by 2007. Read more here about the plans for a quad-core Operton.
     
  2. How about 100TB on a 3.5" disk?

    Here is a newsstory about the new nano tech and here is the press release (note, it's in Word format).

    I want one :D
