Windows Live SkyDrive gets 1GB of storage – Today, Windows Live SkyDrive has received some updates to the service – including everyone now having 1GB of storage. That’s double what was previously there. Along with increased storage, the SkyDrive Team has included a few more things worth taking note of: RSS Feeds on Public Folders: Users can now subscribe to an RSS feed for their Public folders. This allows folks to keep track of each other’s public files and stay up-to-date with what is uploaded. You can subscribe to our Windows Vista Team Blog’s Public SkyDrive folder here. See who uploaded a file: you can now check out and see who has uploaded specific files to your shared folders in SkyDrive. I have quite a few shared folders which are shared out to large groups of friends – it is great to be able to see which files were uploaded by whom. Add a contact directly within SkyDrive: you can now add a friend via Windows Live SkyDrive instead of having to go to Windows Live Messenger or Windows Live Hotmail. Expect to see fixes and tweaks across the board. You’ll also notice that the UI around to Windows Live header has also been tweaked to include easy access to Windows Live Spaces (such as your Friends List and Photos).

10 things that should be in Apple’s next Mac Pro

A lot of points they make do kinda conflict, asking for more for a lower price. However, there are a lot of good points. The points I agree on are ditching fireware for esata, and onboard raid controllers.
October 12, 2007 (Computerworld) -- The recent word from The Inquirer that Apple may be hoarding all of Intel's new 45nm Penryn processors -- and possibly paying for the privilege -- has prompted a lot of speculation about the future of Apple's Mac Pro desktop lineup. Apple's professional machines, which now use Intel Xeon Cloverton chips topping out at 3 GHz, are called workstations by Apple and offer quad- and eight-core configurations. They're fast, and they sport professional prices to match, with top-of-the-line eight-core units starting at $3,997. Read More

Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive

Good Idea, but is it practical? Will there really be a difference while booting and loading data? Waiting for Solid State Disk's will be a better choice, Dell's new M series laptops will have 32G SSD's.
Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive -

hybridhdd_lg.jpgNo, this hybrid hard drive isn’t actually sexy (though it is topless) and it is difficult to get excited about hard drives in general. But, since Samsung’s still an underdog in the category, the company’s doing its best to innovate the space instead of just cranking out larger sizes (though it did that, too). The 2.5-inch MH80 notebook hard drives feature 256MB of integrated flash memory to help you boot faster (though only about 10 seconds faster), wake from hibernation mode faster and get up to 25 percent more battery life for your laptop (though that’s compared to Samsung’s own M80 HDDs).
