Windows 8 ARM: Will its Launch be as Lame as Honeycomb and Windows Phone 7?

leave a comment »

Intel, speaking out of turn and damaging its intimate relationship with Microsoft, has revealed that legacy x86-compiled software will not work on the ARM version of Windows 8. In all likelihood, this means that Windows 8 ARM machines — tablets and smartphones — will ship with a very small library of compatible apps.

Windows 8 ARM will be the first full-bodied version of Windows that has been completely severed from its x86 ancestors. No Windows software will work on the ARM version without significant code rewrites and recompilation.

Intel doubles capacity, drops price in refresh of popular SSD line

leave a comment »

Solid-State Drive 320 series offers up to 30% drop in price; capacities increased by up to triple that of X25-M drives

With the 320 Series, Intel has added native 128-bit AES encryption on the drives, which protects data while at rest on the NAND flash memory.

For data resiliency, Intel also included surplus NAND flash chips on the drive’s board over and above the usable capacity. If the SSD’s controller detects a potential chip failure, it automatically migrates data to the spare capacity.

Intel has also included small capacitors in its latest SSD, so that in the event of a power loss, data writes in progress to the NAND flash memory will be completed.
