Audio fans, prepare yourself for the Second Coming ... of Blu-ray

Re: Not Engineering

Nobody can double-blind test the difference from CD-audio (16bit, 44Khz) and higher "quality" sounds, like 24bit/44Khz, 24bit/48Khz, 24bit/96Khz or 128bit/500Mhz or whatever... It is snake oil!

True, for mixing and working with audio streams, choosing 24bit/96Khz will give you some headroom to work in. But for the finished product, anything above CD-audio levels is simply not needed.

What would be nice in a "bluray" audio disk, would be to get FLACs with correct metadata and album art. Saves me some work ripping new disks into my main music repository. I could pay a premium for that.

Why LG?

I would probably enjoy a Nexus phone, with its minimalistic android approach and fast and timely updates and upgrades... but, I just can't bring myself to buy a Goldstar made mobile...

REVEALED: IBM's new DS3000-killing Storwise storage beast

Re: Why do we actually still need a SAN?

You never managed a few hundred servers, did you? SAN is cost effective in larger scale, it is faster than direct attached in most cases because of the Storage you put on your SAN generally has hundreds of spindles and tiered storage with SDD. SAN can easily be made redundant. Storage inside every server? Are you mad? How to you propose to manage that with thousands of servers?

IPv6 less secure because of lack of NAT?

Are you insane? NAT does not provide security. Please move on ...

Secret's out: Small 15K disk drive market is 'growing'

Morten

Obvious ...

..as 15k disks are faster than SSD in many workloads, in the numbers and mix of them you will typically see in high end enterprise storage. E.g. datawarehouse loads can be faster on spinning disks than SDD.

Why is virtualisation important?

Morten
WTF?

@Gordan

Real hypervisors, like PowerVM, doesn't give that much penalty to I/O ops and you can easily virtualize even heavy I/O workloads.

Video CD?

I have only seen VCD used in the eastern European countries. In the rest of the world, DVD is more or less universal, with Bluray on the move into use. VCD is pretty poor quality, especially when you try to run it on HDMI and upscaling on a largish TV.

I'm afraid the VCD is truly on the way out now... just keep an old dvd player around to play it.

@deegee

What? You need 120C temp water to kill 80% of germs? That is not true. You have to keep the water under pressure to even get it to that temperature.

Most bacterias dies between 70 and 80C, only a few can survive in close to boiling temperatures.
