Solid state drives (SSDs) are the standard for fast storage. You might not know that SSDs utilize flash memory, or NAND, the same storage technology in smartphones and flash drives. We’ve seen year-over-year drops in SSD prices. But a shortage of NAND in 2017 will boost SSD prices. Show More Summary
The Golden State Warriors (34-6) will try to snap a four-game series losing streak against the Cleveland Cavaliers (29-10) as solid home favorites Monday. The top teams in each conference will meet for the second time this season. The...Show More Summary
If you have a MacBook, you probably have a solid state drive inside it. SSDs are much faster than their hard disc drive predecessors, but the speed has come at a cost: storage capacity. This can lead to a reliance on external drives, and the constant need to juggle your available space. Show More Summary
PoliPundit, over a year ago: Since a solid majority of Americans now supports legalizing marijuana, a couple of dozen states will likely do so in the next few years. Reality, today: Legislators in more than a dozen states have introduced...Show More Summary
Even Russians who have been critical of their government voiced dismay at the United States intelligence agencies' account of an elaborate Russian conspiracy unsupported by solid evidence. Alexey Kovalev, a Russian journalist who has...Show More Summary
Surface composition of pull-apart bands in Argadnel Regio, Europa: Evidence of localized cryovolcanic resurfacing during basin formation Authors: Prockter et al Abstract: We combine Galileo Solid State Imager (SSI) and Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) data to investigate the composition of pull-apart bands in Europa's Argadnel Regio.

Western Digital today announced its fastest, high-capacity USB flash drive to date with the launch of its high-performance 256GB SanDisk Extreme PRO USB 3.1 Solid State Flash Drive. The new drives is.. The post SanDisk 256GB ExtremeShow More Summary
Activists need a solid legal strategy to resist states succumbing to Israel pressure and imposing BDS bans.
SanDisk yesterday announced 256GB SanDisk Extreme PRO USB 3.1 Solid State Flash Drive, its fastest, high-capacity USB flash drive to date. This new USB drive is capable of read speeds up to 420MB/s and write speeds up to 380MB/s. It also features a sophisticated design with a durable aluminum metal casing and a retractable connector for […]
Song streaming on subscription services more than doubled in the United States last year, bringing solid growth to the music industry despite sagging album sales, data showed Monday.
Mercury is beautiful. It’s the only metal that’s a liquid at room temperature and pressure. In its liquid state the atoms have enough thermal energy to overcome the rigid metallic bonds that confine most metals to solids at room temperature. Show More Summary
The W12910SAS and W16910SAS are powered by Intel Skylake-based Xeon E3-1245 v5 processors with clocks up to 3.5GHz, paired to 16GB of DDR4 ECC RAM (upgradable to 64 GB), and 60GB of solid state storage for their operating systems.
This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. One of the most basic things we are taught in school science classes is that water can exist in three different states, either as solid ice, liquid water, or vapor gas. Show More Summary
A tool that uses light to manipulate matter inside living cells has begun to explain how proteins assemble into different liquid and gel-like solid states, a key to understanding many critical cellular operations.
Usually, you think of solid state storage as faster than a rotating hard drive. However, in the case of the Raspberry Pi, the solid state “disk drive” is a memory card that uses a serial interface. So while a 7200 RPM SATA drive might...Show More Summary
Solid state storage is dominating in high performance applications but there is still a need for lower cost, lower performance storage for the large amount of longer term content. This will keep HDDs, magnetic tape and optical discs relevant to digital storage applications for some years to come.
Not only do NVMe drives offer more bandwidth, but the updated interface and protocols improve latency and better handle heavy workloads too. They are more expensive than SATA drives, but they are worth the additional coin and are still relatively affordable.
We take Western Digital's new SSD for a spin (pun intended). Is it a good time to consider an upgrade?
One of the most basic things we are taught in school science classes is that water can exist in three different states, either as solid ice, liquid water, or vapour gas. But an international team of scientists have recently found signs that liquid water might actually come in two different states.
Using their advanced atomic clock to mimic other desirable quantum systems, JILA physicists have caused atoms in a gas to behave as if they possess unusual magnetic properties long sought in harder-to-study solid materials. Representing...Show More Summary
