Faster, Lighter, and Completely Quiet


Samsung introduces a 32 GB Solid State Disk (SSD) notebook and a multimedia player. View their press release.

The SSD reads 3x and writes 1.5x as fast as regular hard drives, makes no noise, and weighs about half as much as a regular hard drive. Read their press release for further details. Computers continue to get faster, lighter, and more quiet. What is particularly interesting about this one to me, however, is that with my recent frustration with my cable company – increased costs, continuous reception problems, poor service – an instant on multimedia device that receives TV signals is very intriguing. Soon our TVs and computers will merge, video will be completely digital, and the many new options this brings will likely change what we see and how we get it.
