Intel SSD Roadmap Points To 2TB Drives Arriving In 2014

kmahan Re:Write limits (183 comments)

High end flash add in cards (like FusionIO) typically specify the "write limit" (I think this is what you mean) in Petabytes Written (PBW). So a flash card might be guaranteed to give you a minimum of 5 petabytes written over the life of the card.

California Legislature Approves Trial Program For Electronic Plates

kmahan Imagine the possibilities! (185 comments)

What could go wrong with these? Invariably it will be hacked and someone will broadcast the "stolen" message to all the cards around her/him. Hopefully it'll be possible to send custom messages out to the plates.

Kickstarter Technology Projects Ship

kmahan Great project (100 comments)

I've got to say the best run project I've participated in has been the Teensy 3.0 by Paul Stoffregen.

He kept everybody informed at least weekly during the project and shipped a quality product on time.

Of course for every great project there are less great projects that made big promises and due to various factors haven't been able to keep them -- like the Pebble Watch.
