Seagate Confirms 3TB Hard Drive

EMH_Mark3 Re:How long can the growth last? (467 comments)

Storage requirement would depend on DPI. You're 'only' looking at ~10PB at 600 DPI. Then again you'd expect most everything to be procedurally generated anyways...

iPhone OS 4.0 Brings Multitasking, Ad Framework For Apps

EMH_Mark3 Re:We are all living in the world of Steve Jobs (983 comments)

I don't see what your example has to do with multitasking. What you're asking for is a way to manipulate system settings from custom apps -- having the settings app run in the background just saves you a few 'clicks'.

OLPC Fork Sugar On a Stick Goes 1.0

EMH_Mark3 Re:Old computers boot from USB? (146 comments)

Well not necessarily. If the 'sugar on a stick' build expects to be able to write to the stick, you'd need to add something like UnionFS in order to be able to run it from a cdrom. Not to mention that you'd need to setup something to keep users' settings in between reboots (e.g. a usb stick).
