by Miles Weston
The NSA (National Security Agency) isn't good enough to be that bad. You try to hire 10,000 +/- highly trained cyber trackers. About as easy as hiring 10,000 airport security folks.

Content Insider # 298 - Fast, Cheap Storage Bigger, Faster, Cheaper Flash in Demand But Cold?
by Miles Weston
The flash memory summit - solid state storage - was about more than the elegant, fast, key component of any mobile device you have. Despite it's extra cost, social media and search sites have to use lots of it to keep you from clicking away. Of course then there is all that business storage.

Best of all you'll always know you're working with the latest upgrade and that's a very good thing!
