In an effort to curb drunken driving, the state of Maryland has released an app that helps people decide whether they are sober enough to drive. ENDUI (pronounced “End DUI”) is free for Android and iOS platforms and was launched this week at the annual Maryland Remembers memorial, which was attended by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) president Jan Withers. The ENDUI app has several features, but it’s the Blood Alcohol Guide that has been getting all the attention. Set your gender and weight and you’re ready to start entering the drinks you’ve had recently. As you enter them, ENDUI estimates... Read more...
Apple has just updated its App Store Reviewal Guidelines, not surprising since the company just launched the iOS 5 beta to developers. Some might not "drink to" at least one of the changes: DUI checkpoint apps are now banned from the App Store. The change possibly came as a result of a request from U.S. Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Charles E. Schumer (D-NY), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), and Tom Udall (D-NM) who sent a letter to Apple, Google, and RIM in March. In it, they asked those three companies to remove any apps from their respective marketplaces that allow users get around DUI checkpoints. Apple... Read more...
OCZ's latest solution for cooling their high performance memory modules is the Reaper Heat Pipe Conduit (HPC) system. The Reaper HPC memory uses a combination of an aluminum heatspreader, copper heatpipe, and aluminum fin array to quickly dissipate heat. Heat generated by the memory is absorbed by the heatspreader, where it is then transported to an aluminum fin array which then dissipates the heat into the surrounding air. In theory this method should cool the memory modules much more efficiently than the flat heatspreaders most other memory modules sport.In this article, we evaluate the original... Read more...
For the last several months, DDR2 memory development has been largly stagnent. The fastest DDR2 memory kits from last summer were, for the most part, still the fastest DDR2 memory kits this spring. We haven't seen any truly significant developments in DDR2 since Micron stepped up to the plate with their D9 chips. Although manufacturers continue to release new DDR2 memory, speed increases are fewer and harder to come by. It seems that even the mighty D9 has run out of headroom and it's becoming very difficult to produce faster DDR2 memory while still maintaining acceptible production yields.... Read more...
