Extradition: Kim Dotcom takes the lead, and proposes to go under conditions

Kim Dotcom is willing to go to the US authorities, but requires some guarantees.

Kim DotcomOn Twitter, Kim Dotcom - the erratic pattern of MegaUpload - sent a message to the Department of American justice, which clearly states: "Hey, it will come to the USA." No need for extradition. "It wants to bail, access to funds to pay lawyers fees and daily costs." Kim Dotcom tent so interesting but risky movement, while the extradition request US the respect will be judged in March 2013 in New Zealand and that he could be fired if case justice the rejects.

Kim Dotcom would therefore agree to make him even to American justice, under conditions. The idea being to recover access to her money, while showing to justice its good will, which could count in the judgment. Kim Dotcom cannot apparently be without that access to its funds are thawed, especially that the postponement of the extradition hearing is that extending the period during which he must take no money.

Recently, he explained to a New Zealand newspaper be riddled debts following the accumulation of millions of dollars in legal fees, while it can pay to counsel the penny. "They want to just me hang and dry me up until I have more sole support" he said. Is that Kim Dotcom expects to receive a negative response on the part of the authorities, believing that they "know that they cannot win in this case". "All I want is a fair judgment for us" said, as additional bravado.

Hard disk: back on the molecular storage

The hard drive is becoming 50,000 times more dense. Finally, it remains to the road before coming to industrialise the process...

We you talked about at the beginning of the year, IBM would have found a way to store a magnetic bit with only 12 atoms. Other researchers of the University of Karlsruhe, at Strasbourg and Tokyo would for their successful feat with a single molecule of 51 atoms. If researchers at these universities are not better than those of IBM, the feat is in the form of the maintenance of the State of the bit.

The Interior of a kind of shell maintained by these 50 atoms constituting the organic molecule, they placed a last atom of iron. Thus, by spin transition, the iron atom can be charged either positively or negatively to induce a change of State and therefore be read a posteriori as a bit to 0 or 1.


Molecular storage of KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)

Toshio Miyamachi, researcher at the Center for functional nanostructures of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) indicates that with its structure as nanomolecule, it is possible to store 50,000 times more information on an area equivalent to our current with a reliability hard drives since it is here to add or remove from the electrons in an atom of iron. To compare, if we take a disk trays of 1 sold To currently in the trade, we could then obtain almost 50 inches (or 50 million GB) with this technique.

If the technique seems simple, in practice it is more complicated because he must write the bit in each nanomolecule. With our technology of reading and writing at positioned magnetic head perpendicular to the plateau, he will have to find a way to reduce the finesse of this head to match the fineness of the molecule. A new field of research is therefore opened for its universities and which we will still hear talk about for years to come.

SSD: Plextor passes to the M5S

Plextor prepares to launch new SSD series M5S. A priori, they should be even faster than the M3 and M3P.

Plextor M5SPlextor attacked the DSS with serious market, evidenced by his records M3 and M3P tests. And the mark (acquired by Philips-LiteOn in 2009) is not to stop there. A new SSD arrives, the M5S which promises to be faster even than its predecessors.

Plextor course highlights the quality of its firmware development which "guarantee the performance of exception in time", by leveraging technologies such as Instant Restore, the Global Wear Leveling or Bad Block Management. And thanks to its certification TrueSpeed (another Plextor technology), the M5S promises to reach 390 MB/s write, and 73,000 and 70,000 IOPS and 520 MB/s read speeds. Unfortunately, Plextor details not under some conditions and on what reference.

Because the M5S Plextor will be offered in three capacities: 64 GB from $ 99.99, from $ 159.99 128 GB and 256 GB $ 299.99. Plextor will finally focus on after-sales service of quality, offering a "VIP" access to buyers of the M5S on its support site, including allowing download PlexTool, a tool that allows you to manage and monitor the best his DSS and be updated easily. We do not yet know if the SSD will benefit from the guarantee of 5 years of Plextor, or only a 3 year warranty.

Ultima Forever: an RPG free and virtuous in preparation

The information still lacking precision, but the announcement is: EA, via its Play4Free brand, is working on an RPG free-to-play based on the universe of Ultima!

Ultima 01It is true that the final episode of the series was now 13 years ago (Ultima IX: Ascension), plus Ultima Online, and at the time of the thrilled and other prequels, it we belatedly to see revived this mythical series.

On the internet site dedicated to the game and freshly opened, found as well that the title will be developed by BioWare, that it should be possible to play a warrior or a mage, that there will be a MMO part or Coop, is not too much, and that the game will be cross-platforms (there again, not precision on the name of the platform in question).

On it, it says you it is shared: on the one hand, there is the fear of social trend completely uninteresting and low range (genus Dragon Age Legends) to reach a game. And on the other, the excitement at the idea of power incarnate again the famous avatar of Richard Garriott, and trample the Earth of the immense continent of Britannia.

And for those who know not what it speaks, you can discover a few episodes of the myth via the site Gog, or take advantage of the various remakes that have emerged, such as "Ultima Exult", which brings together the two parts of Ultima VII in a format compatible with our modern systems free of charge. Finish by pointing out that the official website already allows you to register on the future beta of the game.

New generation of hard drives 10,000 tours in Toshiba

Businesses looking for hard drives quick plates spinning at 10 K rpm can move towards the new Toshiba pro range.

toshiba_al13se_b900_001It is the turn of Toshiba occupying the scene with its new generation of disk drives trays specially studied for the business world. With a speed of rotation to 10,500 t/m, the new AL13SE is 2.5 inches with a SAS 2.0 6 Gb/s interface to the format and is offered in several sizes: 300 GB, 450 GB and 600 GB same 900 GB.

With a 64 MB cache, it offers 3.7 ms read and 4.1 ms write response times, we are far from the DSS, but the comparison can be made with this type of business-oriented material with 24/7 operation times since he displays a 2 million hours MTBF and increases the speed of data transfer of 32% over the previous generation. Toshiba ensures that its new drives offer retro-compatibility with the sizes of 512-byte sectors.

These discs are accompanied by five years manufacturer warranty. Toshiba has not yet release public prices of its new range. Need to make contact with his usual reseller to obtain.


SugarSync chosen by Samsung for its Galaxy

The passage of Dropbox for SugarSync will be beneficial only to the loyal customers of the Korean firm...

Samsung_Galaxy_SIII_sugarsync_pcworldAs the Taiwanese HTC, Korean Samsung announced a partnership with Dropbox to offer 50 GB storage space for free with the purchase of a Galaxy S III, but only for two years. After that, should fulfill the usual package in Dropbox to continue to use it. Otherwise, the storage space down to 2 GB, initial free offer of the claimant.

However, Samsung is also closer to SugarSync to offer its features of reading and sharing of multimedia content, but for its TVs Smart TV division. Korean announced today an extension of its partnership with SugarSync for his mobile and tablets to return directly to its AllShare Play program. Thus, the Smart TV, mobile, tablets and computers from Samsung can share content directly and with a single platform easily.

Free Mobile competitors could easily anticipate

The Chairman of Arcep, auditioned by a Commission of the National Assembly, returned to the entry of Free Mobile telecoms market.

Free Mobile competitors have, in the past months, regularly turned to - regulator Arcep for telecoms - to complain about the conditions enjoyed by the new entrant on the French market of mobile telephony. Arcep which, meanwhile, was very happy to see more competition to interfere in the market, since it benefits directly to the Subscriber. Accused of not sufficiently well assessed the impact of the arrival of a fourth operator on the market, Arcep held to be explained once again by the voice of its president Jean-Ludovic Silicani, at a hearing before the Commission of Economic Affairs of the National Assembly.

Jean-Ludovic SilicaniJean-Ludovic Silicani began by recalling an indisputable fact: "everywhere in Europe, we find four fixed/mobile operators." All studies show that the price of the mobile France, was higher than elsewhere. "And the choice of the place to a new entrant was made as early as 2000, when the decision on the distribution of 3 G frequencies".

From there, according to him, nobody can say taking courses. The president of Arcep also does not hesitate to explain that those who complain today, could handle the situation differently. "If they had thought in 2006/2008 to spend a full-MVNO with Free agreement, the issue would not have arisen and they would not be in this situation, perhaps Free have not deployed fourth mobile network." "It is a choice on their part: they did everything to block the development of the full MVNO in France while they were abroad the increasing" he says.

As the price of the licence paid by Free Mobile, competitors believe bradee, yet Jean-Ludovic Silicani presents things flat: "If the conditions were so favourable, if the price was so low, other operators have jumped at the opportunity to be a candidate." "However, despite our efforts, a single operator competed". The price paid for the license is logical, because Free Mobile has a lower volume of frequencies. Not to mention that the new operator arrived very late on its competitors.

Finally, the last difficult question concerns the consequences of the arrival of Free Mobile employment, since its competitors dismiss to restore their margins, and relocate more: "I remember that the sector is facing a trend decline in its numbers, so is somewhat easy to do on the back of Free (...)" For direct employment we are to 1 600 posts deleted via voluntary departures. For indirect jobs, depends on the strategies of operators but 1,500 jobs could be affected (...) Meanwhile, Free have recently created 2,000 jobs including via the launch of two centres of calls in the Paris region. "In all we have 3,000 in losses and 2,000 in gains so the balance is negative 1 000 jobs".

Touch: after the table, Microsoft made the wall

Microsoft bought a very large tactile surfaces specialist, to propose to touch walls.

A few days ago, Microsoft announced its takeover of Perceptive Pixel. A specialist of very large touch screens, which the plateau of the American channel CNN's "magic wall". The idea to Microsoft is clear: offer a very comprehensive catalogue of touch solutions, and take advantage of the release of Windows 8 (and its Metro interface thinking to the touch at the base) to push these products. Thus, tactile walls will be proposed in addition to PixelSense, the new name given to the Microsoft Surface touch table. And for cause, Surface is the brand that Microsoft chose to reuse to its shelves.

CNN Perceptive Pixel

It is not known how much money Microsoft has put on the table to Perceptive Pixel, but we know that it is the division Office of the giant who will manage this acquisition, touch walls being clearly solutions oriented professionals. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, it is a very intelligent redemption and he promised that the first objective will be to ensure to reduce the price of these impressive solutions. Most importantly, Microsoft weapon new touch recognition technology. Touchscreen is taking a considerable importance in the high-tech market.

Internet search: the new better than Google Bing?

Bing updates and took the opportunity to highlight its encouraging progress, which would be on the back of Google.

Since a few days, US Internet users confident their search engine Bing of Microsoft are benefiting from a new interface. The latter is being deployed in Europe and particularly in France, and displays a redesigned home screen, more adapted to the display of the search engine on the shelves according to the Publisher. Idem, the results pages have been cleaned. On the other hand, the new community features launched in the United States have them, not even crossed the Atlantic. Idem, the search for images that have a new algorithm is not yet available here.

Bing France.PNG

At the Worldwide Developers Conference, Microsoft managers responsible for Bing explained that Google sees its reputation and its brand down following the controversies that have had courses concerning its practices relating to the personal data of Internet users. They see a good opportunity for Bing to propose a relevant alternative, showing with graphics that Bing continues to gain on the back of Google market share. Thus on the past year, Bing market share would have progressed 14.38-15.41%, and even 25,63% taking into account all of the portals integrating research by Bing, as Yahoo.

Bing PCWorld.PNG

Research results more sanitized...

Best, according to the exposed information, the rate of relevance of the results of Bing would for the first time surpassed those of Google. Over the past three years, Google saw its rate of relevance of 55.1% to 59.9%, while at the same time that Bing climbs from 51% to 61.4%. Unfortunately, impossible to know how these figures are obtained. And without clearly exposed methodology, this remains of the illustration without value. Damage.

Tablet Surface: objective "a few million"...

Steve Ballmer directs his speech to motivate partners manufacturers of Microsoft on Windows tablets, despite the spectrum of the Tablet Surface.

In the Microsoft Worldwide Partners Conference, Surface bars were all mouths, but on the stage or in the spotlight never. Indeed, the Redmond giant has been careful to avoid addressing the subject in its major announcements. Yet, it was unthinkable that the event ends without a Word from Microsoft on their subject. It is therefore in the speech of the CEO, Steve Ballmer, that the case of these famous tablets has been addressed.

Declaration that everyone will retain respect the ambitions of the editor to these products, namely to sell "a few million" in 375 million of Windows PC which will sell in 2013 according to the firm. A way to minimize the impact that will have the Surface tablets on sales of Windows tablets, and reassure the partners? Not impossible, because in reality, it is these partners manufacturers that the words of Steve Ballmer addressed.

He has so multiplied small phrases to give importance to the models of third-party manufacturers, and minimize in parallel to the Tablet Surface. He notably said that "Surface, it is above all the design" and that these tablets will have "a little place to share in the Windows ecosystem". And Ballmer pounding: "our goal is mutual with our OEM partners: bringing diversity to the market of Windows PC, phones, tablets, servers." "We want excellent Windows terminals and we need the support of manufacturers".


Remains to be seen if such statements will be enough to reassure those who market shelves, believe that Microsoft is trying to take advantage of his position to obtain a competitive advantage for the launch of its Surface. Because HP has already cancelled one of its Windows RT tablets for the benefit of Android, and you heard that Microsoft developed its partners to back... The rumors about the Tablet Surface speak output in October, for "all inclusive" bundles with the accessories for $ 599 maximum for the ARM version and $ 799 maximum for the Core i5 version. There is no was formalized at this level, to follow.

Intel: worms of the wafers of 450 mm engraved in the extreme ultraviolet

An important investment between a manufacturer and the skier to accelerate and reduce the fineness of engraving of chips and processors of tomorrow.

Wafer 450 mmThe launch of the latest processors Intel Ivy Bridge serious 22 nm made aware the skier will have to find new technical solutions quickly for more finely burn again and again. Today, the exposure to extreme ultraviolet lithography is still little used and costly for the cross-country skier from Santa Clara. But the situation could change with the signing of a partnership with ASML.

In exchange for nearly $ 4 billion of investments to acquire 15% of the company ASML, Intel will make profit on the possibility to manufacture wafers of 450 mm and EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet) lithography. For the record, ASML is a manufacturer offering large machinery for manufacturing and engraving of processors and other chips in foundries.

"The transition from a size of wafer to another to usually reduce by 30-40% the cost of production, what we also hope from 300 mm to 450 mm to get a similar benefit." "Pus quickly we will do, faster we will get this benefit to improve the production, which will create tremendous value for our customers and our partners," says Brian Krzanich, Vice president and Director of operations for Intel.

Is that these investments are early stage and a production of chips etched in EUV development is planned for late 2013, while the 450 mm wafers will arrive late 2015... If the plan is proceeding as planned.

OUYA: Should Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo tremble?

And if this OUYA was able to get a place in the video game console market?

The console very inspired official but turning models under Android with a SoC ARM and coming from Asia, there are dozens. But a project which also quickly Federated players than this OUYA, benefiting from the exhibition currently offered to any well wrapped Kickstarter project since the crowdsourcing is fashionable, it is more rare. Because success is already at the rendezvous, at least in the promises of funding. Added only a few hours on Kickstarter, the OUYA project has already attracted more than 20,000 investors, which allows the console to explode its initial objective of harvest $950,000 in record time. Currently, the collected sum displays more than 2.6 million $, what give a sacred kick to the project, actually. Especially him still have 28 days of fundraising.


But then, what did this OUYA to please as much? The promise is simple: it's a console under Android, proposing a joystick resolutely "gamer" to connect HDMI to its screen and that promises to offer quality games, if possible independent and the mode of the Free-to-Play. Some see it as a useless defiance to platforms in place, others the console of the future. In a context also uncertain that it is the game, although malignant industry would in any event that might know what type of game console will be booked in the future.

Always is it that project OUYA accompanied by some interesting business principles. For example, no royaltie will applied to game developers, and the SDK based on Android will be simply integrated into the console. Don't need, therefore, for the studios to invest in specific materials to develop a game OUYA. Only constraint: that sets OUYA are - at least partly - free. Demo and Free-to-Play (Freemium) accepted.


Click to see the video on Kickstarter...

If the sauce is, it is also because this console would be sold at a competitive price if times it came to be distributed one day. $ 99 For a console and a joystick ($ 95 for the first 1000 contributors). Expected now to know more, waiting to see a finished prototype, before will be launched production and development kits are available.

Reactions of independent developers are rather ambitious. Jenova Chen, creator of flOw, Flower and Journey, said: "I'm excited by OUYA." "I think there is always material to disrupt the status quo," while Adamm Saltsman, Canabalt creator, explains: "the prospect of a console open and affordable, is an excellent idea".

Orange failure: insufficient compensation?

Is orange generous enough to forgive the cutoff of its network? And what about customers still abroad, always private telephone?

Orange SmartphoneDue to the large failure encountered by the Orange network, the operator had not dragged to announce compensation device. Today, UFC - that choose is on this day of SMS available to clients on the pre-paid voice to a package, and this Go holders of data available for mobile Web subscribers. To the association of consumers, this gesture is not sufficient given the ampleure of de panne.

"The answer seems inappropriate, because measures have no effect on the portfolio of clients." They allow them to, as the case may be, call, send SMS or surf the Internet excessive for a day (imposed, in addition), but what interest? (...) It is exactly as if a restaurateur opened a free buffet at will for 24 hours: on a beautiful force, after two plates, there is more hunger... "A financial reduction on the price of the package would have probably been more appreciated consumer" considers the UFC-Que choose.

Also, the association added that it's a new maneuver in an attempt to retain customers, since any subscriber party will not compensated, the day offered being chosen by Orange during the month of September. And she recalls the blackout lasted 12 hours for everyone, because travel abroad during the Orange customers were able to use again their phone once back on the French ground. Some are indeed still abroad, private telephone. Orange promises a resolution of the problem, but when? Also, some subscribers is still not recovered voice messages left on their e-mail during the incident...

A reminder, all virtual operators attached to the Orange network, and Free Mobile, roaming partner, will be able to benefit to customers of the same offer of compensation than that which will benefit customers of the incumbent operator.

Dropbox: two times more storage for the same price

Dropbox feels visibly threatened the market online storage and synchronization "cloud" where these new efforts...

Dropbox (1).PNGThe online storage market is increasingly competitive and one of its players the most, Dropbox, has announced a significant decrease in the rates charged to its pay-TV offerings. Or rather, it doubles the storage capacity proposed for unchanged rates, which is not quite the same thing, since the amount levied on bank card by the service remain, it, unchanged.

Thus, to be more competitive Drive of Google services, Microsoft SkyDrive, Hubic of OVH, Cloud Drive of Amazon and others, Dropbox offers now not 50 but 100 GB for $ 9.99 per month and 200 GB for $ 19.99 per month. And synchronization specialist was also able to launch a new offer of 500 GB of online storage space, charged $ 49.99 per month.

Despite these efforts, Dropbox is more expensive than most of its competitors. The 100 GB being charged $ 4.99 a month in Google, and $ 4.16 per month at Microsoft. But with the principle of sponsorship of Dropbox (500 MB earned by recommendation), it is possible to significantly extend the limit of 2 GB for free available up to 18 GB. Good, of course, until there is little time, Microsoft offered on SkyDrive 25 GB to a Windows Live account holders...

Vista and 7: better to disable widgets!

Used for years by millions of people, the Widgets in Vista and 7 are victims of security vulnerabilities.

While it learned the almost disappearance some widgets in Windows 8, replaced with dynamic tile interface Metro, Microsoft prompt users of Windows Vista and 7 to temporarily disable these Widgets after the discovery of security vulnerabilities. Indeed, malicious hackers could potentially use the existing loopholes at the level of the code managing these Widgets, without that it is known more for the time, Microsoft was not very talkative on these faults. Always is it that in its latest security bulletin, the editor indicates that it is best to disable Widgets pending a fix.


"The purpose of this alert is to inform people that Microsoft is aware of security vulnerabilities in gadgets available in the sidebar of Windows, versions of Vista and 7 running them" says Microsoft. To assist users, Microsoft provides an automatic patch that makes the settings necessary to stop any risk. Discovered by Mickey Shkatov and Toby Kohlenberg, these critical faults will be a Conference at Black Hat in Las Vegas in a few days. Microsoft thanks these two experts for their discovery, and is therefore now active to develop a patch.

A heatpipe CPU really "slim" a little different

GELID launches its new heatpipe model that fits in any configuration with only 28 mm in thickness.

gelid_slim_silence_a-plus_01GELID is continuing its development in the field of the new heatpipe cooling named Slim Silence A - Plus.Ce heatpipe resumed the bases of the Slim Silence AM2 with its compact design and can therefore be installed on any configuration of the Mini-ITX passing by the ATX, and the HTPC in the 1U server.

Its base from two heat pipes in copper for a transfer of the heat emitted by the processor directly to aluminum fins. At its centre lies a 7.5 cm fan that can rotate between 1200 t/m and 2600 t/m without precision on the produced noise.

The block is 10.5 cm long for 7.45 cm wide and 2.8 cm in height for a total mass of 285 grams. The manufacturer indicates that its CPU heatpipe is expected to identify 95 watt TDP and fits on any AMD socket FM1 and FM2 and the AM2 AM3 +, it is not question of Intel at the time. It is already available in store for €20 with a manufacturer warranty of five years.

The Western Digital NAS communicate with Dropbox

An update of the WD 2 GB application adds compatibility with DropBox.

western_digital_personal_cloud_storage_dropboxThe storage giant seeks to innovate for its range of NAS products, storage of data at home servers, by proposing an extension to all products My Book Live, My Book Live Duo and My Net N900 central HD.

In addition to its NAS products, the U.S. firm offers an application for mobile and IOS, but under Android, tablets to fly under the name WD 2 GB. An update of this application allows today, in addition to the copy of multimedia content on mobile and tablets, to send directly from the content from these devices and his sin to the Dropbox storage space.

Thus, it is possible to copy data directly from the NAS Western Digital to Dropbox space from anywhere with his mobile phone. It is also possible to send an e-mail containing a link redirecting directly to the household and this Sin from the WD 2 GB application.

The application itself is free and available on the iTunes AppStore, Google Play and Amazon Appstore applications stores, and is of course pair with one of the products in the range of Western Digital Personal Cloud Storage.

Windows 8 introduced the incremental backup

Windows 8 introduces a new feature: backup and keeps the history of files on hard disk user.

With "File History", Microsoft has worked on a backup program automated for the protection of the personal files of the user in the new version of Windows. Well known Linux and Mac, this function will make his appearance in Windows 8, which will therefore also its own system of data protection with a complete history of changes made to the files. Improved management "versions", sort of.


To enable it, simply connect an external hard drive or an internal drive that is not the main disk and select the control panel "system and security". It will be possible to select the records to automatically save and to exclude some folders for not burdening the backup.

microsoft_windows8_file_history_002    microsoft_windows8_file_history_003

Once this step is completed and the backup of files is complete, it will be possible to control the change history directly from the window of exploration of the files via the "History" button which takes the same icon in the application of system restore.

Unlike Time Machine on Mac, Windows backup system will only target users personal folders. He is not here to do a full backup of the system, applications, and other user settings. On the Microsoft blog, explained that "File History" may be used on any machine of the most powerful - that in would have doubted-, to the smallest with little resources. Thus, as soon as the processor is requested or the hard drive is, the backup process is in break time that the main activity of the user ends.




Activity CPU % and space memory occupied by File History

Microsoft engineers also indicate that the process memory footprint has been especially studied to take that 5 MB memory RAM when it is paused and 10 MB in a backup active.

For portable computers, Windows 8 and File History have worked to better take into account the lives of users. When the laptop is put to sleep by closing the screen, backup system is in pause, which is normal, as soon as the screen is again open, File History does not immediately active and expected that the rest of the system and the user applications have completed to wake up.

In the case of a disconnection from the backup disk, File History will temporarily create a record cache of changes and synchronize them later when the disc will be presented again. This cache can of course be controlled by the same control panel. On the other hand, encryption is required for this program with the support of BitLocker for the external drive. Finally, SkyDrive is also supported if it is configured on the machine and will back up all the data of the account on the disk.

A new feature that will allow good number of users no longer lose important documents. Will however, third-party backup software market to take a shot? With a backup only focused on the user files, there is not too much risk for the moment...

Piracy: More effective than the Hadopi PayPal?

By refusing to work with some hosting platforms, PayPal takes the purses, which welcomed the rights with.

PayPalIs PayPal prevail as the best ally of the Majors in their fight against piracy? It is possible, according to the article published by TorrentFreak that returns to the role of the online payment platform that has already stopped working with a dozen hosts files (providing some direct download and/or systems of bonuses to users putting online the most popular files).

Following the closure of MegaUpload, PayPal has indeed changed the manner in which he worked with these hosting platforms and, on the basis of the unlawful activity of some of them and their involvement in acts of piracy, changed its rules to impose much more stringent regulations to these companies. PayPal would for example have visibility on the nature of each file put online by users, and despite existing laws in terms of confidentiality.

And according to TorrentFreak, even hosting platforms that accept all PayPal conditions can be refused by the payment system. Which completely paralyzes the activity of some of these services, since PayPal is often the main tool of transaction. MediaFire, Putlocker or DepositFiles cannot a priori rely on PayPal to monetize their activity. Necessarily, if the situation is confirmed, it may develop a serious brake in the development of such hosting platforms.

More information on the Toshiba 21: 9 Ultrabook

The new Toshiba Ultrabook will be released within a few days with an atypical screen...

Toshiba_U840W_007Following the news published yesterday and with this Toshiba Ultrabook, we now have new information to us to eat on this laptop. Therefore summarize the characteristics of this laptop who sailed a wide screen format "cinema".

This Satellite U845W (U840W in Europe) will be sold July 15 in the United States. The "W" of the reference relates to "Wide" or wide French, and therefore screen 21: 9 a definition of 1792 x 768 pixels with a backlight led to a 14.4-inch diagonal TN slab.

For the rest of the specifications, it has a backlit keyboard, three ports USB 3.0 including a "Sleep and Charge" technology with and allows even the reading of music by the headset when the screen is closed. At the order, will be a choice between a hard drive to 500 GB platters with 32 GB flash chip that will serve from cache or a 256 GB SSD. Selected CPU appears to be Intel Core i5-3317U MHz to 1.7 GHz with a Turbo mode to 2.6 GHz for 3 MB of L3 cache and can be with 10 GB of RAM DDR3. The graphic part seems to be managed by the Intel HD 4000 of the new processors Ivy Bridge of the skier.

Aeolus Big Frost: the new heatpipe dual DeepCool tour

1.12 kg of aluminum and copper to cool any configuration...

DeepCool_big_ Aeolus-2Presented at Computex 2012, this Aeolus Big Frost produced by DeepCool finally arrives on the market. Design double tower with six heat pipes of 6 mm in diameter, he resumed the Assassin version design while being a little simpler in its design.

The dimensions of the block are 12.6 cm by 13.6 cm 15.9 cm in height for a mass of 1.12 kg including two mark 12 cm fans. The first of the two fans shoot air at a speed of 1300 t/d to 22.6 dbA and the second, which supports the PWM for a speed of rotation modulated between 900 and 1500 t/m, will produce 21.4 dbA at the lowest and 32.1 dbA at the top.

For fixing, DeepCool thought all motherboards in the market, or almost, for AMD or Intel with support of the LGA 2011. The purchase of a such heatpipe should cost approximately $ 32 with fans, what remains cheap enough if performance is at the rendezvous.

Western Digital Red: optimized for the NAS disks

After the Green, Blue and Black, Western Digital discovers a new color and turns red.

Western-Digital-Red-3TBDisk tray storage giant announced a new range in its already quite thick catalogue. If one knew the Western Digital "Green" at low speed of rotation and consuming less energy, the "Blue" midrange disk that can meet any needs and the "Black" for performance, going to have to get used to the "Red".

Western Digital therefore opens a new line this time dedicated to type NAS storage servers. To argue this launch, Western Digital relies on problems of reliability for hard disks of other lines that are normally not expected to operate 24/7.

On the menu of this range, optimizations around power consumption while offering specific tools to disks RAID mode operation. For example, with its NASware technology, the data after error recovery is directly integrated to avoid to discus in default too quickly in a RAID cluster. There are also compatible with the ATA Streaming, become essential for storage applications audio and video such as Windows Media Center that relies on this technique.

These hard drives are built around 64 MB cache SATA III bus and offer three sizes of 1 To 3 TB storage. The speed of rotation of the plateaus is variable according to the IntelliPower and the flow can go up to 150 MB/s sequential read. The public price of the 1 TB version is €99,90 (WD10EFRX), the 2TB is €129,90 (WD20EFRX) and finally the 3 To €189,90 (WD30EFRX), all being accompanied by a 3 year warranty. We hope that this new range is not only a change of color on a label for a little more expensive sell these hard drives, and that differences with the Green discs will be well notable for use in a home NAS.
