Karen’s Review Roundup On This Snow Filled Weekend in Ontario – for Feb 12, 2012
Woke up yesterday morning and couldn’t see out the front windows, and this morning everything is white. Finally, a taste of winter.
In a country that expects and needs snow this is a good thing. There are a lot of people and businesses that rely on snow.
And lets face it, snow in February is so much better than snow in April, May, etc.
It’s a good weekend to be a ‘techy’.
A few days ago we looked at the latest Solid State Drive from Intel “ the 520 series, codenamed Cherryville. The drive is built around compute quality 25 nanometer NAND flash memory and offers a claimed maximum sequential read speed of 550 MB/s.
