Officially USB is still rated for a maximum charge current of 500 mA. That is far too low for charging the big batteries of modern smart phones, and that is one of the problems the manufacturers have with micro USB. Has this problem been resolved, has or will the USB standard been revised for more charge current up to let's say 2.5A?
Heinrich Himmler was the Reichsführer SS, the highest SS rank and equivalent to field marshal. The chief of the luftwaffe Hermann Göring had the higher rank of Reichsmarschall since he was the second in line after Hitler.
Motorola made an update commitment
I bought a Backflip some 6 months ago. At that time and even now (!!) Motorola promised an update to Android 2.x for Q3 on its Western European web page for the Backflip. That was the reason I bought a phone with a very outdated Android 1.5 . In my view that update promise is a firm commitment.
The reception and transmission quality is not very good. With my old RAZR I could have a telephone conversation on places where the Backflip looses the connection.
Not really a new idea
A non routable ethernet protocol for storage not using IP and TCP, something new? Not really. Good old DEC used many non routable ethernet protocols for specific purposes. For storage they had the Mass Storage Control Protocol.
From the the introduction of the MSCP manual (1982):
Mass Storage Control Protocol (MSCP) is the protocol used by a
family of mass storage controllers and devices designed and built
by Digital Equipment Corporation. In a system that uses an MSCP
storage subsystem, the controller contains intelligence to
perform the detailed I/O handling tasks. This arrangement allows
the host to simply send command messages (requests for reads or
writes) to the controller and receive response messages back from
the controller. The host does not concern itself with details
such as device type, media geometry, media format, error
To me this even sounds better then sending ATA commands over a low level ethernet protocol.
They must have invented a new EVA
Chuck really checked his calculations before he wrote them down. He is talking about a 254 disk EVA, however the maximum disk capacity of the EVA8100 is 240 disks. I wonder where he put the extra 14 disks.....
Then he makes some wonderful calculations. He could have used the the Storageworks Sizing Tool, it is even downloadable for EMC people. Using that tool, and setting up 7 disk groups with double protection and 90% occupancy, a 240 disk EVA8100 with 35040GB raw disk capacity will give me 24759GB usable capacity, and that is appr. 71% .
Maybe Chuck should just buy an EVA and set it up. Or ask his engineers to set one up, I'm sure they have an EVA in their lab somewhere.
SeaMonkey is the successor to Netscape, not FireFox
SeaMonkey is the present name for the original Mozilla Internet Suite, which was the Open Source version of Netscape. So if you want to keep using the full Netscape functionality, go for SeaMonkey. Since Netscape V3, I have never been using anything else than Netscape, Mozilla or SeaMonkey (except for IE only websites).
