Mark Hachman of PCWorld precisely explains what is Windows Ink: “Windows Ink is an optional way to interact with Windows, in much the same way you can use either voice or keyboard to query Cortana.” Basically, Windows Ink is a new way to make human and machine interaction easier. It allows you

Optimizing SSD Performance on Windows 10 PC

“When I was using HDD on my old PC, I used to defragment it several times in a month. Two months back, I got a Windows 10 Laptop with 128 GB SSD. Now, I am a little bit confused about whether my new PC should be defragmented or not. Some folks are saying like SSDs are not require to defragment (Well, I don’t know its reason). Give me suggestions on this.” This was a question I recently found in a Windows 10 forum. I think the question is still unanswered. I don’t understand why these SSDs are creating that sort

Heat doesn`t kill your hard drives. Humidity does

Does heat kill your hard drive? Most of us think, temperature impact life span of hard drives more than anything. This has been a persistent myth for years within the storage industry. Until a team of researchers from Rutgers University, GoDaddy and Microsoft shatter the myth. The researcher team led by Ioannis Manousakis and Thu D. Nguyen, of Rutgers, Sriram Sankar of GoDaddy, and Gregg McKnight and Ricardo Bianchini of Microsoft studied the impact of temperature and humidity variations on hardware  reliability in datacenters. I will quickly summarize the overview of the study: A recent study estimates that data centers

Microsoft Announces Updates for Windows 10 Mail & Calendar Apps

How many of you have used Windows 10 inbuilt mail client -“Windows Mail”? Certainly, the number will be less. Windows Mail was there from the versions of Windows 8, but you may not have used it till now.

The wide range of integration options like – Hotmail, Outlook, Google, Yahoo, AOL and more. Not merely these apps, you may find it hard to find a well-recognized Windows 8 app in past (either productivity or media).

EPFL Scientists Built Single-atom Magnet: The most Stable to-date

Over the past 10 years, Miniature Storage techniques have taken center stage, thanks to the scientists who have been working in the field for years. These techniques are results of efforts to make computing technology as smaller as possible. One of the biggest impediments to developing practical smaller computing devices is preserving information. For smaller computing devices, storage necessarily has to be atom size. Which further requires to build single-atom magnets. “But a single magnetic atom is so sensitive, that its magnetic orientation remains stable only for a fraction of seconds.” which means it would not be able to retain the

Are SSDs Going to Stay Longer?

This is the question that gets asked often, and it’s very heated topic to boot. There are plenty of folks in the industry who says it’s going to stay and plenty of others who thinks it’s on the way out.  Google Infrastructure VP, Eric Brewer recently argued: “current disks are designed for enterprise service, not for their current dominant use as a cloud-based storage.” Brewer explanation about his claim made a lot of sense. I’ll quickly summarize and add some background information. “SSD” is the short form of Solid State Drive. SSD technology primarily uses electronic interfaces that are compatible

Apple Says No QuickTime Update for Windows- How to Uninstall

Homeland Security recently issued an alert for Windows users urging them to uninstall and delete QuickTime after cyber security firm Trend Micro reported two vulnerabilities in the program. Apple confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that they would no longer be providing QuickTime support or updates for Windows users. Adobe’s Madison Murphy addressed the issue in a recent blog post: “Adobe has worked extensively on removing dependencies on QuickTime in its professional video, audio and digital imaging applications”. She also pointed out, “Unfortunately, there are some codecs which remain dependent on QuickTime being installed on Windows, most notably Apple ProRes. We know how

Can a Piece of Glass Save Data?

Yes. Fiction becomes reality!!  What seemed impossible in real life and as shown only in Superman movies has become a reality. A team of researchers hailing from Southampton have made it possible. They have developed working models of 5D  glass technology that will allow people to store huge amount of data in a tiny piece of glass. Watch the video of Peter Kazansky : Nanostructures in glass will store data for billions of years Professor Peter Kazansky, from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), says: “It is thrilling to think that we have created the technology to preserve documents and information and store it

History of Storage from Cave Paintings to Electrons (Infographic)

It started as paintings inside caves, then Papyrus for early documenting and today we are looking for DNA as storage solutions. As our hunger for storage soars, so is technologies have evolved from ages. I`ve put together a brief timeline of how storage techniques have evolved. Think of it as a highlight reel from the past. And if you are more of  a visual reader then you`ll love this infographic
