A reader wrote in to ask about a 10Gb Ethernet network for home use. Sorry. Thunderbolt is the home network price and performance leader - not Ethernet. What happened?

You're having a coffee and surfing when an apologetic stranger asks if she can charge her Android phone on your USB port. But she's installing malware on your PC. Here's how to stop it.
They could be hack proof - or much less hackable - if security were built into them instead of bolted on. Here's an example of what that means.
It doesn't matter how many leading-edge sensors it has or how beautiful and stylish it is. If the iWatch doesn't get power right it will fail. Here's two Apple technologies that will set the iWatch apart from competitors.
They keep cramming more transistors on chips every year while performance gains have slowed to a crawl. Why not put DRAM on-chip to speed up CPUs?
Surveillance cameras are everywhere, backed by sophisticated facial recognition software. But you can defeat them, the NSA and whoever else is monitoring you. Here's how.
Connected Data announces a new SSD-based Drobo Mini that gives what pro users have been clamoring for: performance. You can now edit video with a redundant array not much larger than a DVD drive.
Making flash SSDs look like disks isn't easy. In fact, advanced high-performance SSDs use more power and run much hotter than disks. They aren't your father's thumb drive.
Main memory is all the same. But why? All data is not created equal, so why is memory? Another reason the cloud is winning.
The disk drive industry faces expensive technical challenges as they try to return to 40 percent capacity growth. Shingled drives could double disk density, if the performance kinks can be worked out. This firmware hack could do it.
Apple's embrace of the enterprise is going to be Tim Cook's most lasting and important legacy. Samsung has taught Apple a lesson the company will profit from for decades.
You still hear complaints about nonremovable batteries in mobile devices – mostly Apple – but there is an upside: the ability to eliminate performance overhead. Here's how.
Remember Compuserve? AOL? Yahoo? Secondlife? Facebook? Yeah, you remember Facebook now - but not for long. 'Social' services have a definite lifecycle and Facebook may be on the downside.
Wearable tech is nothing new. As anticipation builds - and rumors fly - over Apple's hypothetical iWatch, wearable tech's successes show us what Apple is targeting.
Turn an old storage kit into NAS gold. Veteran storage accessories producer Addonics has a new, low-cost NAS adapter that can turn that old PC into a capacious file server.
