TechZone Heading

Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

ST builds chips for gene detection
The chip, technically called a MEMS (microelectromechanical system), essentially performs several of the tasks involved in scanning DNA for genes, a process that normally requires a battery of laboratory equipment, according to Barbara Grieco, business development manager in ST's printhead and microfluidics business unit. Additionally, the chip needs only few drops of blood to conduct tests, less than current testing procedures, and performs tests more rapidly.

Fujitsu admits potentially defective HDDs
The papers lodged with the court in California, in the $50 million action between Cirrus Logic and Fujitsu (of Japan), confirm what observers had already guessed, that - contrary to the blasť denials of any notable problems - there is indeed an officially acknowledged problem with the MPG3xxx series of drives. And Fujitsu knew the massive scale and scope of the problem at least 18 months ago. Cirrus Logic's case against Fujitsu for breach of contract was filed on 19th October 2001 - over a year ago, as was Fujitsu's counterclaim for breach of contract & breach of warranty.

A quick story notes that Nvidia is preparing to stop all Ti 4600 production...with the 8x AGP Ti 4200 card being the primary seller. Makes you wonder what they might be using those ti 4600 lines for :).
