DS2 announces 400Mbps powerline networking

Never really thought and still don’t think Powerline based Networking would take off. With the increase in speed to 400Mbps, this will defiantly give a lot of fiber technologies a run for their money.

Launch Event and Demos in New York City next month, November 2007

18th October 2007, Valencia, SPAIN – DS2 announced today that it has developed technology that will allow next generation powerline products to operate at a peak data rate of 400Mbps. This milestone will enable the development of new HD-capable multimedia applications, such as multi-channel HD-IPTV delivery or multi-room PVR.

Demonstrations of the 400 Mbps powerline technology will be featured at the invitation only technology launch in New York City next month. DS2 400Mbps technology will be available in next generation products from DS2 on time to satisfy the demands for extra bandwidth in the digital home and last mile applications that most analysts predict will happen from 2009 onwards. Next generation multimedia applications including multi-room IPTV and HDTV networked entertainment services, networked PVRs (personal video recorders) and multiple video streams will require bandwidth sufficient to support 5 or more simultaneous video streams.

A recent study from the Diffusion Group on ”Bandwidth Challenges to the Digital Home” (2007), confirmed that the need for bandwidth sufficient to deliver at least 3 HDTV and 2 SDTV streams to the home is foreseen as early as 2009.

ZFS On Linux – It’s Alive!

This is just lovely. A file system that can take automatic snap shots!
ZFS On Linux - It's Alive! - lymeca writes "LinuxWorld reports that Sun Microsystem's ZFS filesystem has been converted from its incarnation in OpenSolaris to a module capable of running in the Linux user-space filsystem project, FUSE. Because of the license incompatibilities with the Linux kernel, it has not yet been integrated for distribution within the kernel itself. This project, called ZFS on FUSE, aims to enable GNU/Linux users to use ZFS as a process in userspace, bypassing the legal barrier inherent in having the filesystem coded into the Linux kernel itself. Booting from a ZFS partition has been confirmed to work. The performance currently clocks in at about half as fast as XFS, but with all the success the NTFS-3g project has had creating a high performance FUSE implementation of the NTFS filesystem, there's hope that performance tweaking could yield a practical elimination of barriers for GNU/Linux users to make use of all that ZFS has to offer."

Error’d: Crashing Las Vegas

This is awesome. I recently took a trick to Las Vegas, and wondered about all of the the neat hardware that runs the screens and lights.
Error'd: Crashing Las Vegas -

Surely, you’ve seen the commercials and are familiar with Las Vegas’ First-Commandment / Clever-Marketing-Tagline: What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas. I suppose we can bend that rule today and share a couple pictures that Christopher Kimbell snapped while he was walking down the strip…

… and later that day …

As for the rest of the pictures that Chris found on his camera after his vacation? I think we'll just leave those in Vegas…

WoW Sparks Family Dispute

WoW Sparks Family Dispute -

If you’re planning on having children some day then I highly suggest you listen to this audio track. I don’t feel the need to explain what’s going on other than the fact that the brat was playing WoW and his parents wanted him to stop. Oh and be sure to turn your mic off or you’ll be ridiculed for the rest of your life and live infamously on the interwebs. Enjoy!
