    Innodisk Launches 4K M.2 Graphics Card

    This is likely 100% Digital signage related. So that you can run more than 2/3 displays off a single intel SOC solution or similar. Will probably have next to zero actual acceleration and likely use the iGPU for nearly everything much like a USB2.0 or USB3.0 (to whatever you prefer) display...

    IDK man, they have done pretty well in the non-enterprise markets, I have 1/2 dozen WD drives that have seen 40k hours of 24/7 access on some drives, that have zero realloc sectors across all of those drives. And a pair of WD 1tb blacks that were in my lan machine going everywhere with me...

    Google Rebrands Project Fi and Opens it to More Devices

    I am just fed up with companies allowing their reps to make promises and not following through or fixing it after the fact. Not training up and holding their reps (retail and phone) to that knowledge/skill. instead they just hire a 'team of experts' that literally know nothing and just attempt...

    Streaming Is on a Collision Course with ISP Data Caps

    AND you cant stay grandfathered into any old plans, any single change to your service requires a complete migration to the newer SHARTer plans, including a simple change of address as close as next door (apartment for example) will cause a complete account migration.

    Streaming Is on a Collision Course with ISP Data Caps

    Right now. with all the other ISP's and such that SHARTer has been buying, I wouldn't be surprised if their rectum, err, spectrum services get clearly defined data usage and BW caps.

    https://fi.google.com/about/faq/#coverage-3 https://fi.google.com/about/faq/#switching-plans-7 I agree TDMA/CDMA should have died off long ago. The FCC Also needs to step up and ensure providers have more network interop for voice/txt as so many more people dont have landlines anymore and...

    U.S. Secret Service Issues Warning to Gas Pump Skimmer Operators

    Actually it is a combination of the POS, the pinpad, and the Internet.. If I use my watch in the same subway as my chip card, its roughly 3 times faster with the watch. If I do the same test at a gas station, inside, where they offer cash back, and I'm paying attention for the prompts it can...

    U.S. Secret Service Issues Warning to Gas Pump Skimmer Operators

    This is why I have a separate spending and bills card/account, and a paypal account/card tied to those as well so if one card is copied, I have another card for a few weeks and they wont screw up my bills account preventing the extra frustration. So I only ever swipe one card while out, if for...

    U.S. Secret Service Issues Warning to Gas Pump Skimmer Operators

    doesn't really matter, it uses your real card only for setup, then the bank/card backer generates a digital only card for contactless payments that has different numbers. and generally its faster than even the fastest chip setup I have run into, the problem is support from the retail/processor...
