It's extremely easy to carry around gigabytes of data on storage devices in our pockets or bags and it's equally as easy to have that storage device lost or stolen. All the more reason to protect that data by using a device that secures your data without the hassle of soulutions that get in the way. Kingston's DataTraveler Locker+ G2 USB 2.0 flash drive is well suited to protect your data at a reasonable price - but will it come at the expense of performance? Read on to see.

"With the increasing awareness of the need for protection of personal data to mitigate ID theft and fraud, consumers are gravitating towards solutions that add security but aren't too cumbersome or intrusive. With many of us toting around sensitive data on removable media from home to school or work, the opportunity for loss or theft is a very real possibility.

Because Penguins Like to Blow Shit Up Too, Serious Sam 3: BFE Linux Version Announced

­

- Linux Version Coming This Year to Steam, Will Support Steamworks -

 

THE INTERNET – Croteam and Devolver Digital announced today that the popular 2011 PC indie shooter hit Serious Sam 3: BFE is under development for a 2012 release for Linux. The Linux version will feature all content up to date for the PC and Mac versions of Serious Sam 3: BFE.

Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital said, “We’re in the process of integrating Steamworks and achievements and the whole shebang, but we can’t get the little fucker of a penguin to stand still.”

Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

Parker continued, “The last time I had anything ‘Open Sourced’ I was in Thailand, if you catch my drift.”

ADATA to Present at 2012 Flash Memory Summit

Will lead paper session regarding optimizing user experiences

July 24, 2012 - City of Industry, California – ADATA Technology announces its speaking at a conference session at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CA, held from August 21 - 23. The company’s CTO, Young-Joon Choi, will discuss strategies for optimizing user experiences through the correct Flash storage solutions.

As solid state drives become ubiquitous for consumer applications, it is growing more difficult to fully understand the relationship between performance behavior and user experiences over time. ADATA will present how user experiences in various scenarios are affected by the underlying architecture parameters of SSDs and what would be optimum strategies while considering performance and cost. This will include demonstrating user SSD-related experiences in various scenarios, then analyzing how those experiences are affected by the SSD architecture parameters. Various strategies will then be proposed and discussed for optimality.

The presenter from ADATA, Young-Joon Choi, leads the company's flash storage development and marketing. Prior to joining ADATA, Choi was Vice President of Flash Solution Enabling at Samsung. He worked on initial NAND Flash developments on design and testing beginning early ’90 and later pioneered enablement of NAND Flash into mobile systems, including the first NAND-equipped iPaq PDA, and invented OneNAND Flash which was used in tens of millions of mobile phones worldwide. He is an industry authority on NAND architecture.
