10,000 Rpm...Harddrive, not Rotary.
Dr. Damage and the gang do some serious spinning and try and figure out what differences 10,000 rpm drives have between each other. Numbers are numbers folks...never a true indicator of performance.

Samsung LTM295W 29" LCD Monitor/TV
The contrast ratio of 600:1 is amazing, and takes the cake for being the highest I ve seen to date here with the site. I was pleased to see a more than acceptable brightness level of 450cd/m2. The response time isn t anything to snuff at, standing at 22ms. For viewing angles everyone should be pleased with 170/170 (W&H). The last mention is the pixel pitch which sits at .4935(h) X .4935(w). The optimal resolution while in PC use is 1024 x 768 @ 75Hz although the maximum is 1280 x 768 @ 75Hz.

Sony sets movies to self-destruct
According to Japanese newspaper Nikkei Business Daily, the company's So-net Internet service provider will soon trial the service in Japan. Many digital content providers currently use encrypted streaming to prevent people from saving and copying movie files. The downside is that the quality of the video suffers, as it is reduced in size for Web transmission. In addition, people must stay online to view the feed.
