Why Palm Sucks!

May 30, 2007

Palm had done its best to whip up a frenzy leading up to today’s announcement from founder Jeff Hawkins about some new mystery product. Well, it’s here, and despite Hawkins’ proclamation that it’s “the most exciting product” he’s ever worked on, the Foleo “smartphone companion” isn’t exactly overwhelming. Basically, it’s a $500 screen and keyboard for Treo smartphones, which the company is pitching as an email device. The Foleo syncs to a user’s Treo inbox over Bluetooth, and lets users view and compose emails, and it features an Opera web browser and a photo-viewing application.

RAID storage explained

May 30, 2007

RAID was originally defined as Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives, but RAID setups were traditionally very expensive so the definition of ā€œIā€ became Independent. The costs have recently come down significantly because of commoditization and RAID features are now embedded on to most higher-end motherboards. Storage RAIDs were primarily designed to improve fault tolerance, offer better performance, and easier storage management because it presents multiple hard drives as a single storage volume which simplifies storage management.
