Incredible! This is huge news!
Innovation for the win!
If you look at what new banks like Monzo are doing with their micro services and UK based IT staff you can see why the legacy banks are in so much trouble. They literally sacked everyone and thought they could outsource everything to India while being on a 1970's mainframe platform. Pure idiocy.
Google should buy them....
Always thought these were a good idea, so much wasted space in 1u rack servers these days.
We even moved to installing NUCs in a rack and it works great.
I've been using GIMP recently since the 2.1.0 and its outstanding compared to what it was before with the white background and horrible "floating" toolbars.
The new version really is a revelation, and the developers should be congratulated for their efforts. The startup time had been annoying so I am glad to try out this latest improvement.
The only thing I would change is having plugins based in a simple standard python language, and better online videos on their youtube channel to teach new users. Oh I would also make the colour icons default just to make it look nice out of the box ;)
Fuchsia looks awesome already, finally a proper replacement for Androids fragmentation issues
You would just "fill up" for 45mins at a service station on the motorway. Charging is a non issue these days.
The unnamed company was Jaguar and the car was the i-Pace.
Hopefully prices will come down for the larger drives.
This version looks surprisingly beautiful...
SSD burnout is a non issue
I've got an 8tb SSD based NAS back home, been using it for over a year now.
The days of large storage on SSD are here.
Wordpress runs 30% of the internet, what exactly do you not like about the most popular website platform on the planet?
Don't forget the PDF editor. This is a great feature that people have wanted for years.
Works well too.
Is it me or is this totally confusing with all the different versions?
I have no idea what any of them are....
/me continues working on windows 7
Don't touch OCZ with a bargepole.
Some of their drives had a 50%+ failure rate.
Stick with intel.
Been stuck on 1tb for a while.
Come on, bring out the 2tb versions so I can finally upgrade my noisy NAS
Been running all the front and back end servers for my organization on Intel SSD's for a couple of years now. Couldn't be happier with the power consumption, speed and reliability improvements.
I would suggest any organization looking at doing it this way, has a good handle on what data they are actually storing and for how long. Its amazing the efficiencies that can be done when you are actually restricted to storage space.
People can moan about renewables but it is our main way of gaining energy independence.
Our offshore wind capacity is one of the best in the world. If it was all exploited then we could power the country 5 times over. Think about Saudi Arabia and their oil reserves. The UK is similar in its wind power resources.
I have this laptop, and the screen is outstanding already.
I'd take the battery life any day.
I still don't understand why I have to pay for a "Voice line" when I have never used it.
I only want broadband.
Yep waiting for a 2TB option here as well.
Got the samsung 840 1TB version and its great! Just need that extra space.
Been using SSD drives in my web servers since 2010, blindingly quick, reliable and power efficient.
Flash is certainly the future, but I still struggle to see why these expensive enterprise solutions are actually needed.
The biggest innovation this year is the large capacity Samsung 840 Evos.
I just bought a 1TB version of this for our backup server for less than 500 quid!
Now that is revolutionary!!
We've been running Office 365 for a year now and loving it.
Its laughable to think we ran an entire server for our 1,000 person business now. That's like running a nuclear power plant to heat your home ;)
I left because they didnt do fiber. Simple as that.
Currently sitting on a 70mbit / 15mbit infinity line. Couldn't be happier :)
BE was a pioneer that lost its way...
We use Intel drives throughout our organization with 1000's of PCs.
Been using them 2 or 3 years now. Never had a single failure.
Check your manufacturer.
now we just need some laptops to include the 802.11ac chip!
We run 2 x identical Windows 2008 R2 hyper-V storage servers with 600GB Intel SSDs in them in our organization. Basically mirroring each other each night.
The intel SSDs are rock solid, there is no complicated setups and the file sync each night is lightening fast. We also backup the entire VM each weekend.
Fail safe data on a very limited budget :)
Having used a standard Intel 320 consumer drive in a high volume webserver for a while now, I can quite safely say I don't give a monkeys about PCI/E devices.
Some of the OCZ SSD drives had a 25% failure rate. No company can survive after that.
I moved to skype a couple of months ago, works great and just as good as msn messenger. Only thing I miss is the nudge feature.
All old contacts show up just like messenger, I really don't have a problem with skype.
Been running an Intel-X25 24/7 as a high traffic, high I/O web server for over 2 years now. Works perfectly no slowdown as far as I can tell. Not even using TRIM on it.
SSDlife software reports 97% health levels and a 33 year projected lifespan.
Who knows how long it will last but its doing fine so far!
100% coverage or 100% of houses?
I live in the town center appartment block and cant get Infinity.
We've had "Fiber" for 2 years now but apparently not my building for some reason.
This company is good at press releases and not so good with actually getting anything done.
I wonder where they will get their 500 million quid from?
"If you are building systems using solid state drives (SSDs), you need rock-solid reliability and performance – and you won't get it from consumer-grade flash."
Not sure thats true. I've been running a web server business on Intel x-25 SSDs for 3 years now 24/7 with no problems at all. Over 100 machines not one failure yet.
Some good info here
Got the 600gb Intel 320 in my work machine right here and been running 24/7 since it was released.
How can satellite broadband possibly be "superfast"?
Having around 100 based Intel SSD machines in my organization I can understand why they are doing this. Not had a single disk fail yet.
I've never noticed any speed increase at all with 64bit.
Totally pointless to the end user really.
Hotmail also seems to be broken in the latest beta
I run 50+ intel SSD machines here and only ever had one "failure" which was simply s.m.a.r.t errors (all the data was fine). I rang up intel and it was pretty hard to RMA as they didn't believe there was a problem!! Thats either a really reliable drive or really bad support.
Its cheaper as well!
Hope they get the plugin system working as well as VBulletin though. That's what really makes good software.
These things will surely revolutionize the speed it takes to manually transfer files. Zoom zoom!
Same here, looking for small cheap reliable drives, not something to replace my normal storage hard disks.
Very very generous to give this 75% rating, it cant play 720p ffs.
Totally and utterly useless for what it is designed for.
Give little asimo some credit! I'd like to see you guys stand up in front of an orchestra and know what your doing.
The motion of the arm movements and the way the robot turns at the end is simply stunning imo!
The set top boxes are usually imported from Germany and are not the property of either Virgin or BskyB, they are unofficial boxes.
