Didn't you know terrorist use forums ?
I suggest duplicity.
I forgot which one, but there is a country where game currency earned needs to be mentioned when doing taxes because the government see this as income and wants to get income taxes on it (even if you don't get real money from it).
It was intended for mobile: so maybe it should enable the camera and see if you blinked and slowdown or maybe 'scroll back' a bit.
You are talking about 1 Gbps ports, not fiber optic cables.
What I mean is, fiber optic cables can not be mass-produced (well), termination and testing of ready made patches is still a partly done by hand. That is what silicon photonics is trying to solve, mass production of fiber optic cables with connectors and all. This should drive down the price.
OK, sorry, maybe I should have said: pre-paid is pretty much the only option for the unbanked.
Well, you might not need to have twice as many. It just depend how much you are willing to pay.
He is using a RAID-array as his primary storage. You will only need the other copy as a disaster recovery. In case you accidentally delete or format or the hardware RAID controller fails and you can't replace it anymore. Or something else stupid like that.
So if you have a RAID5 of your originals and a copy on non-RAID disks and do regular checksums of your data to compare if reading the data from the RAID and non-RAID disks is still the same, you should be OK in most cases. The checksums checks could be rsync -c or ZFS/BTRFS or whatever.
If you want more assurances, you're bigger issue is: you should have your copy off-site.
If you've done all that, only then you might want to make sure the copy has RAID.
Next step up from that is to keep a history of your changes of course, to have a real backup. Not just a copy.
That is what silicon photonics is promising.
"cheaper price point"
That is the whole point of silicon photonics, mass production.
It's not a billion per year, there are a billion smartphones in use in the market right now. It's not a sales figure.
I'm not saying they picked an easy battle, but saying at this point that the war is won is a bit early too.
No, no, in most wetern countries it's mostly subscriptions, not pre-paid.
pre-paid mostly applies to the 'unbanked' of the world (people without a bankaccount), which really is a huge number of people.
Actually, I heared Firefox on Android is the highest rated browser in the Google Play appstore.
Really ? In a market of 4.5 billion phones and 1 billion are smartphones ? That still leaves a large part of the world phones not running Android.
And FirefoxOS is focussing on making it run well on cheap hardware, instead of focussing on other things.
If I remember correctly the cheapest phones are sold for US $12 on the street in China, which are sold for US $ 10 in larger quanities direcly from the factory:
