They were more of an issue with small drives and swapping operating systems. Those problems were overcome pretty early on with as you point out intelligent drive controllers that don't write data in the same place. Since the latency almost non-existent in SSD, there's suddenly almost no penalty for writes across the drive. With 2TB of space to work with it will take a very, very long time. I imagine drives of this size would be used for data storage more than anything, so it depends on usage. The average home user will likely never hammer their drive like a datacenter will.
How long will solar panel owners be paying off their 3.7 million dollar victory at $5 a month? What an incredible waste of money.
Tape and glue. LOL. Does this have any real application outside of rapid prototyping?
For the "electronic backpack" to work the cockroaches have to be placed in icy water to subdue them before sandpaper is used to remove the waxy coating on the shell of the insect's head.
An electrode connector and electrodes are then glued on to the insect's body and a needle is used to poke a hole in their thorax in order to insert a wire. Their antennae are then cut and electrodes are inserted. A circuit is attached to their backs, and signals are received through a mobile phone app allowing users to control the cockroaches' movements to the left and to the right.
The Roboroach weighs 4.5g and is compatible with most mobile phones. It overrides the insect's antennae making it turn left and right at the flick of a switch."

we lost a long time ago. papers please?
This is actually a great idea.
Indeed. After posting that I ended up researching it myself. Funny what people tell you is the truth. I had always believed that we were still sitting on stockpiles of weapons.
"President Obama said, "The use of chemical weapons anywhere in the world is an affront to human dignity and a threat to the security of people everywhere. We have a duty to preserve a world free from the fear of chemical weapons for our children."
The United States needs to start dumping its own stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons then.....
You are going to kill AC? Please god do us all a favor!
They should grow a pair and start worrying about real threats and not some kid throwing virtual darts at their pictures. Gimme a fucking break.
and let me add....he's 15. a minor. charges? wtf is this country coming to that even kids are now criminals?! WTF AMERICA??
when I was a kid nobody would have thought twice about this. now this kid is in jail. he's the one that was bullied. i was bullied a lot in grade school, so I fully understand his frustrations and anger. next the "crushing his head" skit will be banned. our future is fucking fucked.
This is fucking unreal. Thought crime to the fucking max man.
"This is NOT an SDHC card. SDXC devices support the older SDHC standard, but SDHC devices do not support or recognize SDXC cards. SDHC devices are limited to 32GB, anything larger requires an SDXC device. The SDHC in the title of this post is misleading because it implies that this card could work in an SDHC device, which it cannot."
