Submission + - USB 3.0: Everything You Need to Know

Esther Schindler writes: "After a lengthy gestation period, the third generation of the Universal Serial Bus is making its way to the market. USB 3.0, also known as SuperSpeed USB, has throughput of up to 5 gigabits per second. That's even faster than the 3Gb/sec of SATA hard drives and 1Gb/sec. of high-end networking in the home, and USB 3.0: Everything You Need to Know goes into plenty of the techie details. But is it already obsolete — will LightPeak make USB 3.0 irrelevant?"

Sure there will be some robot bidders but also in all that noise, in that huge volume of data, with world wide access, just how difficult could it be to place therein a modulated communications channel. Now I am not saying that any of those signals currently are, but it is an interesting thought to me on yet another way to send a disguised message.

So here he was, an American in a foreign country who was providing material means for people to rebel, overthrow, dissent, terrorise their legal government. One does wonder what would happen if an Iranian or Iraqi came into America and provided material means for people to rebel, overthrow, dissent terrorise the American government? Maybe a book on how to achieve things? Would said Iranian or Iraqi have been imprisoned under American laws? Maybe even sent to a place where torture was the norm like Guantanamo or one of the secret CIA prison camps on European soil?

He employed an industrial plastic shredder to shred alive anyone who spoke out after having the wife raped... Hated people were fed in head first, really hated people were fed in feet first.

Wow, are you really so gullible to believe the propganda the American media spout as truth? This story is so very false. As false in fact as the WMDs America used as justification to start a war.

and nobody is fooled except the usual fools

I have rarely seen a more apt signature.

The parent has sort of a point apart from expressing disgust in an innapropriate manner, it is a little lame that Americans are proclaiming with glee how they insulted a foreign leader to his face before hanging him.

"Nya nya nya nya nya, you are a fag and the devil's butt monkey" - It's not really adult behaviour is it, and certainly not the behavior of a country that likes to think they are a world leader.

Take the high moral ground guys, don't play childish games like this and maybe the rest of the world might respect you.

Let's hope that the soldiers who did this are brought up on disciplinary charges.


Submission + - TomTom Sues Microsoft For Patent Infringement (

CWmike writes: "GPS device maker TomTom has shot back at Microsoft with a claim of patent infringement, after the software giant raised concerns in the Linux community with a recent lawsuit against TomTom. In a suit filed earlier this week, TomTom alleges that Microsoft infringes on four patents in mapping software Microsoft Streets and Trips. TomTom is asking for triple damages for willful infringement, since it says it had notified Microsoft about its alleged infringement. Microsoft said it was reviewing TomTom's filing and that it remains committed to a licensing solution and has been for more than a year."
