Toshiba today announced a new self-encrypting disk technology that promises to nuke your sensitive data should it fall into the wrong hands. It's called "Wipe Technology," a proprietary suite of security functions that add a new layer of protection to data storage and IT equipment. Using Toshiba's Wipe technology, users can determine a range of security settings that fit their paranoia level, including invalidation of encryption keys and deleting data when a drive is removed from its housing or connected to an unauthorized host system.

Data security is a top concern for many businesses. In addition to the need to control and secure data on computers and mobile PCs, companies also realize the importance of sensitive data that is stored on the hard disk drives within copier and printer systems. To help companies secure this data, Toshiba has developed Wipe technology for its Self-Encrypting Drives. With Wipe, sensitive user data can be securely erased when a system is powered-down or when a SED HDD is removed from the system. The feature can also be used prior to returning a leased system, disposing of a system, or repurposing... Read more...
Sadly, the world will have to live with one less competitor for LCD, OLED and CRT. As if CRT is still around. Canon, the same company responsible for selling millions of EOS digital cameras, once had a plan to truly rival the other television technology producers in the world. But for one reason or another, SED never really took off. There were prototypes shown off and promises made, but no launch schedule was ever followed. Now, years after SEDs initial introduction, Canon is finally hoping to put the technology behind them and forget all about what could've been. This week, the company officially... Read more...
If you are a technophile, what's the first thing your wife / friend / relative does when they can't figure out something, or when there's a problem, no matter how small, technology-wise.  Yep, they come to you. Now, yes, most of us here are technophiles, but besides that a new Pew Internet & American Life Project study (.PDF) which focuses on "When Technology Fails," seems to show that youth and gender play a role in how confident a user will be in fixing a tech failure by themselves. And yes, besides the obvious stats they gathered about how many failures may have occurred, Pew Research... Read more...
There's been talk recently over private browsing features in upcoming browsers such as Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.1 (Safari already has this feature).  Privacy, of course, is an important subject for many end users (despite the somewhat pejorative term "porn mode" frequently used for it).  Well, a new browser has been recently released that --- rather than making this feature an afterthought, focuses directly on privacy as the base of its capabilities. Level 9 Technology, Inc. has launched the ArmorSurf Private Browser - a free web browser & downloader that lets users surf... Read more...
What might come as a surprise for many people is not that Netflix will cease selling used DVDs, but that Netflix was actually selling used DVDs in the first place. Selling "previously viewed DVDs" (as Netflix calls them--sort of like how used car salesmen sell "previously-owned vehicles"), has been part of the services that Netflix has offered for sometime, with some discs selling for as little as $5.99. But after November 30, Netflix will no longer offer this service, so that it can focus on its "core business" of "delivering great movie rentals to you on DVD by mail and instantly to the computer...

Remember the CherryPal, cloud-based, thin client we reported about in July that was supposed to be available by the end of that month? The ship date obviously slipped a few months, but it looks like the CherryPal desktop is finally gearing up to make its real-world debut in only a few weeks from now. The CherryPal site announced that the CherryPal is finally ready to ship on Election Day: November 4.   Credit: CherryPalWhen the CherryPal desktop ships it will look a little different than the glimpse we had of it in July. The case is a bit slimmer and with a more polished, glossier look.... Read more...
It's difficult to function productively in a professional or educational environment without access to Microsoft Office. Many offices supply the software to its employees at work and some universities even give copies of it to incoming students. But if you don't fall into either camp and you require a legal copy of the software, you could spend anywhere between $149.95 and $679.95, depending on which version you need. And you might want to start saving your pennies now, because the next version of Microsoft Office (codenamed "Office 14") is rumored to be due out sometime next year (the Alpha program...

For some time now, rumors of the GPhone (or Google phone) have been circulating around the web.  While it didn't make a whole lot of sense that Google was going to get into the hardware business, especially the highly competitive handset business, it seemed reasonable that Google had an interest in the handheld market for obvious reasons, not the least of which is the huge potential in search.  Though, as we came to find out, it wasn't so much the hardware but the "platform" that Google was interested in.  Tomorrow (9/23) will bring a lot more clarity to...

If you were one of the lucky people who wanted to try the new "Genius" feature of iTunes 8, and had an HP USB printer driver installed and said printer connection --- or perhaps a few other drivers --- you might have experienced the (yes, it's still part of Windows) tried and true BSOD when you plugged in your iPod.The BSOD was happening in usbappl.sys, and a few various workarounds were posted at the Apple support forums, including unplugging or turning off your HP printer when plugging in your iPod (or iPhone, whatever).  Low-tech, right?Well, today Apple re-released iTunes 8.0.0.35 with...
