2GB/4GB Ipod Nano Review

2GB/4GB Ipod Nano Review iamge

2GB/4GB Ipod Nano Review by the guys in is very detailed with alot of information on the new flash-based Ipod Nano.

The iPod Mini hadn’t even celebrated its second birthday, yet the rise of the Nano signals a quick death of what was considered to be one of the hottest portable audio products in history. Perhaps Apple had been sitting on its duffels for too long. The Mini’s lack of a color screen and abysmal battery life would never let Apple take control of the small player market. Jobs and company couldn’t sit still, so they’ve knocked out the two biggest problems with one punch.

Abandoned Insane Asylum

Abandoned Insane Asylum or Dixmont State Hospital aka Western Pennsylvania Hospital for the Insane is quite a scary place to be.

The hospital opened in 1859 and was named after the social reformer Dorothea Dix. Dorothea was a soft-spoken crusader for the proper care and treatment of the mentally insane and chose the 400 acre site for the hospital. When it opened Dixmont had 140 beds, but during the latter part of the 1900’s the hospital was filled with over 1,000 patients ….

Japanese Carp Koi – Robotic Version

Japanese Carp Koi

Do you want to keep some Japanese Carp Koi but lack the time? Well, this is a good news.

“The robot is modeled after a Nishiki koi carp as a form of tribute to Hiroshima Castle (whose nickname Ri-jo means Koi Castle). The 80-cm (31-inch), 12-kg (26-pound) fish has a white body with bright red spots. Though the tail movement is very smooth and lifelike, the remote-controlled koi is capable of moves that a genuine koi is unable to perform, such as swimming in reverse and rotating in place.

The robot is Ryomei Engineering’s fifth in a line of fish robots that includes a sea bream, a prehistoric coelacanth, and a golden carp. New features added to the robotic koi include a CCD camera built into the head and sensors for analyzing water quality”

Low Power Microprocessor

Intel reveals its Low Power Microprocessor recently, called “Sossaman” , a low-voltage version of its Xeon server processors that consumes between a third and a fifth the amount of electrical power as its brethren.

Low Power Microprocessor

It says:-

“The dual-core chip, called Xeon LV as expected, consumes a maximum of 31 watts of power compared with a range of 110 to 165 watts for other Xeon models. In quantities of 1,000, it costs US$423 for a 2GHz model and US$209 for a 1.6GHz model.

The chip is a response to growing problems of power consumption and resulting waste heat in the data center. Intel rival Advanced Micro Devices has made inroads in the server market, in part because its chips are more power-efficient, analysts say.”

Park Domain Versus Addon Domain

On my way to search for difference between Park Domain Versus Addon Domain, I found an interesting argument on SiteGround forum.

Some of the points being discussed are:-

“The purpose of the Parked domain Cpanel function is to allow the customer to have more than one domain name opening his/her website. This means that Parked Domains are not intende to be used to serve different content from the primary domain.

The Addon domain is the function that allows you to have more than one website hosted on one account.

Using Parked domains as Addon domains with the help of htaccess is not allowed on our servers.”

They also mentioned on using .htaccess to turn park domain into addon domain, which I am VERY interested now bacause I have used up all my 9 addon domains, and with unlimited park domain, I think this trick will help alot.
