MojoKid writes "Intel recently announced their new line of SSD 910 PCI Express Solid State Drives for the datacenter and high-end workstation markets. The 800GiB Intel SSD 910 is comprised of four SSD modules, 200GiB for each module, each with 448GB of Intel 25nm NAND per card (over-provisioned). Each of the SSD arrays is managed by a co-developed Intel-Hitachi SAS/NAND controller and providing the x8 Gen 2 PCI Express interface for the card is LSI's LSISAS2008 PCI Express to SAS bridge. Performance-wise, with 2GB/sec sustained read and up to 1.5GB/sec sustained write bandwidth, the card competes well versus competitive solutions in the market and comes with a 7 to 14PB (400GiB and 800GiB cards respectively) lifetime endurance rating."

+ - HDCP master key is legitimate. Blu-ray is cracked.

adeelarshad82 (1482093) writes "Intel has confirmed that the leaked HDCP master key protecting millions of Blu-ray discs and devices that was posted to the Web this week is legitimate. The disclosure means, in effect, that all Blu-ray discs can now be unlocked and copied. HDCP (High Definition Content Protection), which was created by Intel and is administered by Digital Content Protection LLP, is the content encryption scheme that protects data, typically movies, as they pass across a DVI or an HDMI cable. According to an Intel official, the most likely scenario for a hacker would be to create a computer chip with the master key embedded it, that could be used to decode Blu-ray discs."

Did you happen to know that Pharma spends more for advertising in the US than R&D?

Its worse than just advertising, its marketing in general: which includes buying politicians, doctors and paying hospitals to give away "free" samples of baby formula to parents who are then told "don't change the formula, it can be bad for your baby". And then there is all the advertising. Frequently this is for new drugs that aren't as good as existing ones but of course we're expecting that the newer the better, and so are the doctors that don't do their homework too.

We're screwed. We know we're screwed, and there is nothing we can do about it.

One possible reason that things aren't going according to plan is that there never was a plan in the first place.
