Pull Ties are a new invention that offer a simple method of securely closing plastic bags ...

Scientists may be working on things like increasing the efficiency of solar cells, finding new methods of filtering water and growing hardier strains of wheat, but they have been woefully neglecting one important task for decades ... creating a better way of closing plastic bags. Currently, options include twist ties, spring-loaded clips, plastic tabs and zip-lock bags. The first three of those aren’t particularly sturdy, while it’s often difficult to get zip-locks to seal properly. Perhaps, however, all of us frustrated plastic-baggers might have better luck with the recently-released Pull Ties.  Read More

Prepare for some mind-boggling numbers. A new study has estimated how much information there is in the world in terms of how much humankind is able to store, communicate and compute. Looking at the period from 1986 to 2007, the study is the first to quantify humankind’s ability to handle information and how it has changed in the past two decades. But despite the monumental figures, the numbers still pale in comparison to the order of magnitude with which nature handles information.  Read More

If parting with a whole suitcase full of cash for solid state drive storage doesn't really appeal then Angelbird's PCIe card solution might be worth a look. Designed to allow users to add storage modules as and when they can afford to, the Wings card comes with its own fairly small amount of SSD storage where the operating system can be placed for fast booting, plus four expansion slots where additional capacity can be added. Angelbird is producing its own expansion cartridges but will include clips and couplers so that users can slot in whatever SSD solution they want.  Read More

Viking Modular has placed SSD storage on a DDR3 memory module to create SATADIMM

Viking Modular has unveiled a novel approach to adding a solid state storage boost to a computer or server. Instead of being bound by the familiar 2.5 or 3.5 inch (63.5/88.9mm) form factor, the company has introduced SATADIMM - storage on a memory module. It's shaped like system RAM and slides into DDR3 slots on the motherboard but connecting up its onboard SATA interface results in up to 200GB Enterprise Class Solid State Drive storage being made available. Although likely to find its way into business systems and data center servers in the immediate future, system designers may well find the module useful for creating even thinner mobile devices, such as tablet computers.  Read More
