NET NEUTRALITY

What is Net Neutrality all about?

Making Sense of the Latest Hard Drive Technology

If you took a sample of the technology press coverage over the past year, you’d probably think processors (CPU/GPU) were the primary focus of computer innovation. The press loves a good fight. Therefore, Intel vs AMD or NVIDIA vs AMD makes for eye-catching headlines as well as compelling stories. New chips from major players garner much attention, but they are not the only components that have seen an increase in development and innovation.
Take, for example, hard drive storage. As we create more high-fidelity content, storage and drive performance are often more critical to the workflow than anything else. For example, […]
