I can't agree with this enough, not every machine needs to be able to access the web. Granted you could probably gain access via a gateway system, but just the other day I watched a customs agent while it was slow play on the web. Seems like those guys would have access to a lot of data just to be sitting there playing on the web from their own workstation!

+ - Terremark Joins Lower End Cloud->

Drivintin writes "Terremark enters the more lower end (get the fog reference yet?) cloud computing market with their vCloud Express offering. I have always wanted to be able to use their higher end cloud, but really had no projects to offset the costs. So now we are all going to join the cloud right? Lets say we are going to build a decent Windows Server, but provide our own software and licenses. So our total would come out monthly to $168.10 So it is not the entry level cloud that I am looking for, but it is a pretty decent entry for small to midsize companies. You have to remember that your getting a pretty decent amount of redundancy and very considerable uptime protection. This is not like your dealing with a small time hosting company that is relying on other to keep them running, Terremark is their own large scale provider."

Drivintin writes "Here is a piece talking about wifi on airliners, and their associated costs. Looks like the leading deployment comes from a company named Gogo. They have developed a light weight unit that uses the CDMA network from Aircell. It brings up a very good point of, "How much are you willing to pay? What about after the newness wears off?"""

Drivintin writes "Here is a piece highlighting the first electric start of a large turbine engine. The Boeing 787, Dreamliner, is shifting away from not only bleed air systems, but in some cases even hydraulic systems to electrical ones. This in THEORY should increase safety and reliability. There is even a video showing the first electric start of the engines."

Submitted by

Drivintin writes "The Running Tally has word that Circuit City has returned. It is almost like a blast from the past, or maybe more like a sick joke, but Circuit City has returned from the grave. Brought back to life by System Max, the online ONLY store made its debut this week. I have to admit, at first glance at least, the site seems to have something the original store never had, decent prices. The product drill down also seems to do a decent job also. My only complaint is the site is a little busy looking, but not too terribly bad. What are your thoughts?"
