20GB PS3 Discontinued by Sony
Sunday, April 29, 2007
According to reports, Sony has confirmed the discontinuation of the 20 GB model of
The official announcement from Sony reads,
At launch, we offered two separate models of PlayStation 3 to meet the diverse needs and interests of our PlayStation fan base. Initial retail demand in North America was upwards of ninety percent in favor of the 60GB SKU, so we manufactured and shipped-in accordingly.
The announcement further reads,
Due to the overwhelming demand for the 60GB model from both retailers and consumers, we have ceased offering the 20GB model in North America. In addition to the larger internal hard drive, the 60GB PlayStation 3 features added storage media slots and built-in Wi-Fi not found in the 20GB system Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model.Apparently, the reason behind discontinuing of the 20 GB model has much to do with pricing and lack of certain features in this model vs-a-vs the 60GB one. The 20 GB model was available for a price of $499, where as the 60 GB model is available for $600.
It's obvious most buyers would prefer buying a bigger and better PS3 for a few dollars (read: $100) more...
However, those who already own a 20GB model need not worry, as the company has reportedly assured these customers of continued support the same as promised upon purchase.

1.8″ 64GB NAND Flash Solid State Drive introduced by Samsung
Wednesday, March 28, 2007
Samsung Electronics has announced that it has developed a new 64GB flash solid state drive, which measures just 1.8-inches. This new flash Solid State Drive is based on an eight gigabit single-level-cell NAND, making it able to provide higher performance when compared with conventional SSDs.
Besides, the read and write performance of the new Samsung flash SSD has been increased by 20% and 60% respectively when compared with the 32GB flash Solid State Drive that was introduced by Samsung last year.
The new flash Solid State Drive, which could well be used as a replacement for a hard disk drive, is a secure and reliable storage option. It uses instantly-accessible, non-moving NAND flash memory instead of the noisy, power-hungry, jarring-sensitive rotating disc found in conventional hard drives, allowing it to upload and download data quickly and in a much quieter environment, with minimal power consumption.
The specifications of the Samsung 64GB flash solid state drive are:
# 64MB/s read speed
# 45MB/s write speed
# 15g weight
# 0.5W operation, 0.1W idle power consumption

Searching for sites based on the ever booming Information Technology ??
Tuesday, March 27, 2007
Here is the answer
Here you will find sites that are in business for information technology. If you are searching for specific information technology businesses, companies, it us better to search in a vetical search engine like Masterseek
Now you must be wondering how a vertical search engine will help..Vertical search engines deliver to businesses what the big sites can’t without the use of complex keyword combinations: relevant and essential content versus an exhaustive return of information.
Business.com their competitors are just directories whereas Masterseek is a search engine plus directory
You can even list your company on Masterseek and get a good exposure based on keywords and additional listing of your products.The price ?? Only 199$ for 12 months..Good isnt it ?? It sure is and for the next three months any basic submission listing is free!!
