InnoDisk Internal Ready Boost USB Flash Drive

Want to add Ready Boost USB flash drive to your system but don’t want to sacrifice a USB port? Well, you can now use InnoDisk Internal USB Flash drive that plug directly into your motherboard.

InnoDisk is a lesser known brand in my area, but they do provide lifetime warranty the last time I check with their salesman.

Price for the 2GB internal Windows Vista Ready Boost flash drive is US$15, which is comparable with normal (non Ready Boost USB flash drive). I might buy one for myself…. wait… I do not have a desktop  anymore 😉

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.

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.”
