Microsoft changes their mind about allowing virtulization of Vista Home and Premium

No virtualization for home or premium? Is a ploy to take more money back from the consumer to buy the “super-duper-more-expensive” version so that you can do virtualization? Microsoft ditches about-face on virtualization restrictions at 11th hour – Microsoft this week was about to relent and allow the (legal) virtualization of Windows Vista Home Premium and Home Basic.

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.
