New Cloudbox From Lacie Keeps Your Data Safe

LaCie now has a new cloud storage system called the CloudBox that is essentially a hard drive that backs up your files both locally and wireless to a cloud-based platform. When it comes to data protection, you’re always going to want to have a backup in case there are technical difficulties over the cloud (on the web).

For $200 a year, users will get 100GB of cloud data storage. The device itself costs $200 and the first year of storage is free. Users can then opt to either renew the contract or drop the cloud service.

First Phase-Change Memory Cellphone

Samsung has just released the first Phase-Change memory smartphone on the mobile market. The coolest part is that it is an entry level model and it’s called the Samsung Monte GT-E2550. You can currently order the phone on Amazon’s UK website for just 40 pounds. A company called Chipworks that specializes in reverse engineering and semiconductor patents released a careful analysis of the phone.

If you’re unfamiliar with phase-change memory, it’s basically a special storage technology that combines the advantages of RAM with the non volatile aspects of flash memory. Last year, a 512Mbit manufactured version of the chip with a 65nm size was part of a multi-chip package last April.
