YouTube To Share Revenue With 20-year-old Filmmaker

YouTube To Share Revenue With 20-year-old Filmmaker – destinyland writes “YouTube just has signed a deal to share ad revenue with 20-year-old Brandon Fletcher. YouTube had already said they’d implement revenue sharing this summer, but this indicates they’re willing to put their money where their mouth was. 10 Zen Monkeys has a funny chronicle of Brandon’s enviable march to YouTube money. 9 weeks ago he flew to California to demand YouTube feature his video on their front page. A security guard refused to let him off the elevator — but he made crucial contacts which helped seal the deal 9 weeks later. Taking this business to the next level makes sense in the here and now, when some 70 percent of internet users are streaming video.” Read more of this story at Slashdot. [Slasdot]

GRUB for DOS 0.4.3pre1 (Default branch) - Screenshot GRUB for DOS is a rebuild of the GNU GRUB boot manager for DOS, and can be run under real mode DOS. It also has many new features. It can be booted through BOOT.INI of Windows (grldr) and kexec of Linux (grub.exe). It can directly boot NTLDR (WindowsNT/2K/XP), IO.SYS (Windows9x/Me) and KERNEL.SYS (FreeDOS). The disk emulation feature is another enhancement over GNU GRUB, and can be used to run legacy DOS/Windows9x systems with floppy or hard disk images.

Western Digital developing 20,000RPM drives

That's right, this isn't a joke.
The new drive will be very similar to the recently-released VelociRaptor, in that it’ll be a 2.5in drive with a custom 3.5in housing built around it. Details are incredibly light at this stage, given that the product is still in development, and we don’t even have a release timeframe at the moment. However, our sources said that the drive will be ‘silent’ – that’s the last thing I would have expected from a drive with platters spinning at 20,000 RPM. Western Digital is apparently working on silencing the beast by improving the housing technology, which will now not just act as a heatsink, but also as a noise cancelling device. We’d also hope that the drive enclosure has some vibration dampening technology as well, because that’s also likely to be a problem given the high spindle speeds.
Now they just need push SATA 6.0Gbit/s onto motherboards http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA#SATA_6.0_Gbit.2Fs Full artile at bit-tech.net
