Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 (1 Terabyte) HDD review

I just picked up a SATAII 500G drive that went for $130CAD, Western Digital. Hitachi use to make drives for IBM, if you ever remember the DeathStar's. It seems that someone forgot to put in some logic within the drive, and have the drive park its heads during idle. It never did this and eventually the heads got so dirty they would scratch the disk. This has all been fixed now, but its a blast from the past when you see "DeskStar" popping up. I remember losing quite a bit of data that summer. I did however recover some by putting the drive in the freezer. :D
Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 (1 Terabyte) HDD review - The terabyte race for consumer desktop hard drives has been on for a long time, now the first generation of drives is here. On April 25th, Hitachi announced that it would begin shipping the Deskstar 7K1000, their latest series of consumer hard drives, weighting in at 750GB and a monstrous 1000GB (1TB). The 1TB version which we are reviewing today is slated at $399, a serious price tag for this colossal amount of storage.

The Deskstar 7K1000 represents a milestone for Hitachi and for the hard drive industry as a whole, as it is the first drive to offer a 1 terabyte capacity. However, Hitachi has not simply grabbed five 200GB platters and stuck them together to create a 1TB hard drive. Rather, there is much more to the Deskstar 7K1000, such as its Serial ATA II interface and the massive 32MB memory buffer. This is also the first desktop Hitachi drive to feature PMR technology (Perpendicular Magnetic Recording).

Firefox Extensions Waiting to Be Exploited

With anything that is open source, bugs and exploits will be found. However, this makes it easy for developers to patch these issues. As they know the code that is causing the problem, and usually the hacker will provide a patch for them that just needs to be reviewed. However, this is a real concern for myself, since I use over 10 FireFox extension.
Firefox Extensions Waiting to Be Exploited - Do you think you are safe with Firefox? In general, I would agree with you. But at the same time, I would also point out that there is a fairly sizable security concern that may be addressed, as effectively as some security experts might like. It's called the Firefox extension. [WArp2Search]

Web 2.0: Apps for the well-organized student

Web 2.0: Apps for the well-organized student - pencils.png

Read/WriteWeb has created a list of their top web applications for students - but honestly, anyone who wants to be more organized could benefit from this list.

Many of these have been featured here at Lifehacker central; however, I really like how this list is organized into specific categories: office replacements, taking notes, mind mapping, studying, bookmarking, collaboration, calendars, calculators, and more. Do you see anything missing from this list? Let's hear it in the comments.

Underfunded NSA Suffers Brownouts

This is really funny, NSA employee's have problems trusting each other.
Underfunded NSA Suffers Brownouts - An anonymous reader writes "Almost ten years after the an internal report, and a year after a Baltimore sun story warned that the electrical system at the fort Meade NSA HQ couldn't keep up with the growing electricity demand ... the problem has got worse. The 'NSA has had to resort to partial, rolling brownouts at its computer farms and scheduled power outages and some offices are experiencing significant power disruptions'. NSA director Alexander testified to congress about this problem. It is suggested he wanted to add more than $800 million to the 07 budget. A recent public powerpoint presentation suggested 70% of of all intelligence spending goes to contractors. It also included a graph, without numbers, of this spending. It suggests that US intelligence spending is around $60 billion. An internal survey that showed NSA employees have problems trusting each other."
