Low-priced SATA flash drives are tempting. But beware: some of them test at an abysmal 2 random writes per second!
It seems people are quick to jump on Apple and label them an evil empire that wants to control your entire user experience. While that may be true for some things this whole iPod shuffle headphone chip issue may have gone a bit farther than it actually needed to. Michael Gartenberg put together a nice summary post that lays out the whole story as we currently understand it. It seems to me this headset just gives new iPod shuffle users a way to control their music experience since there are no controls on the device itself. Nokia includes these type of inline controllers with their Nseries devices to give you a faster and more convenient control mechanism, but as far as I can tell there is no evil DRM chip in them.
Cisco's Unified Computing System aims to unify components of the data center into one footprint. The goal is to cut the total cost of ownership by 20 percent in capital expenses and up to 30 percent in operating expenses.

<p> Tablet PCs have not become the mainstream products that Microsoft hoped when Bill Gates introduced Redmond's version of the concept at COMDEX back in 2001. Nevertheless, a number of leading vendors — including Dell, HP, Fujitsu Siemens and Toshiba — offer tablet PCs. And there's definitely life in the tablet PC ecosystem because it also supports several specialists, selling mostly into vertical markets like healthcare, construction, education and the military. Perhaps the best known of these vendors is <a href="http://www.motioncomputing.co.uk/">Motion Computing</a>. </p>
If you need a rugged tablet PC that can do a full day's work in the field, Motion Computing's wide-screen J3400 will do the job very satisfactorily. However, it's not the lightest tablet we've seen, and you can rack up a big price tag if you pile on the options.
Microsoft's pre-beta Azure Services Platform went dark for a period of 22 hours on Friday and Saturday, leaving a "large number of deployments" slow to start or restart, or simply hanging in "stopped" or "initializing" states, reports The Register (UK).That puts Microsoft in good company with Amazon Web Services and Flexiscale, which have also suffered massive outages since launch.
Make Magazine's blog post headline "$0 digital pinhole camera" sounded too good to be true, and guess what? It is! Poster Jason Striegel acknowledges that he "stretched the $0 part a bit" but even setting aside the fact that you need an actual dSLR camera for the project (which costs actual money last time I looked), unless you plan to beg, borrow, or steal the black construction paper, aluminum foil, rubber band, and tape you'd need, that will cost more than $0 as well. Still, the idea is an interesting one for photography buffs.
