Samsung's line of Galaxy handsets hardly need an introduction. By now, even casual smartphone shoppers are familiar with the Galaxy brand, which spans top-of-the-line flagships like the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20, to much more affordable options like the Galaxy A and Galaxy 5G. And of course there is the innovative Galaxy Z Fold 2. But... Read more...
Sophos has published an emergency security update to patch a zero-day vulnerability in its XG enterprise firewall product. The patch plugs a hole that was being abused in the wild by hackers. Sophos says that it learned of the zero-they exploit on Wednesday of last week, after receiving a report from one of its... Read more...
Samsung's Galaxy Note series of large format Android smartphones has never been about compromise. The pen-wielding, hybrid devices have always been bigger, more powerful and more capable with larger batteries and as many bells, whistles and features as Samsung could throw at the Note's spec list. As such, Galaxy Note... Read more...
Enterprise-class solid state drives used to be rare beasts that commanded heavy price premiums over their more common, consumer oriented counterparts. As leading SSD and Flash memory manufacturers have evolved their processes and technologies, however, availability and pricing for many enterprise-class solid... Read more...
The brain is the most complex organ in the body and the most difficult to unravel. Scientists have developed a variety of ways to better understand the brain, including the use of supercomputers. The world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer, the Spiking Neural Network Architecture (SpiNNaker), was just switched on... Read more...
Samsung has become somewhat of a household name in the consumer solid state drive market—between its Pro and Evo drives, the company offers some of the fastest and best bang-for-buck options out there. Its newest SSDs, however, are aimed at data center customers and consist of several new models aimed at reducing the... Read more...
Back in late 2017, Seagate gave us a taste of what's to come with its multi-actuator technology for modern hard drives. Whereas today's hard drives use a single actuator to sweep across the spinning platters, Seagate actually uses two actuators that move independently around a single pivot point, potentially doubling...

We took part in an interesting demo this week that was both eye-opening and somewhat alarming. We met with representatives from Synaptics to discuss what we thought would be its latest sensor technology or HCI device, but were treated to a real-world hacking display that would leave most people slack-jawed. Why, you... Read more...
Take a look at your printer. Give it a good stare. Do you trust it? Probably not, considering it jammed the last time you had to print an important paper right up against a deadline. However, what if we told you that your printer just has to sit there on your network to be a very serious security problem? HP Inc... Read more...
You might think that storage makers are 100 percent focused on solid state drives these days, but that isn't the case. Mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs) still offer the best price-per-gigabyte ratio for bulk storage duties, and to keep things going, Seagate today announced its Enterprise Performance 15K HDD v6 in... Read more...
If you thought that Samsung’s monstrous 15.3TB PM1633a SAS solid-state drive (SSD) was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Seagate strutted into the Flash Memory Summit this week touting a new SAS SSD that offers four times the storage capacity of the PM1633a — that’s right, this new enterprise-class SSD has a...

Any way you look at it, today's storage technologies are impressive. We can hold a tiny memory card no larger than our finger nails that can fit thousands of images, songs, and documents, and potentially hundreds of videos. We even just wrote about a new consumer hard drive from Seagate that packs 10 terabytes inside... Read more...
There are two things that Samsung really wants: to be one of the first to deploy a city-wide IoT infrastructure, as well as make sure that IoT infrastructure is on its home turf, in South Korea. That will soon be happening, and it's sure to be one of the first of what will become many such roll-outs over time. For... Read more...
You read the headline correctly – this is not a review of a Synology NAS, but instead a wireless router. If this sounds unusual to you, you are not alone. Synology is a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) company, or at least it used to be, as it's now taking all its networking expertise and jumping into the router market, and the black beauty...

If you have an older system that is still chugging along with a traditional hard disk drive (HDD), the easiest and most cost-effective way to speed up the machine in many standard uses is to drop in a solid state drive (SSD). This not only true for consumer and small businesses, but especially for enterprise market... Read more...
Solid State Storage continues to come down in cost and scale higher in speed and density. Though spinning hard disk media will likely have a place at least in the data center perhaps for generations to come, SSDs are making great strides, driving toward cost parity with HDDs with each new generation of product, while...

Synaptics was been working on a comprehensive, yet simple to use, fingerprint authentication technology that the company hopes will make a big splash with gamers and corporate users alike. Although it’s had a couple of names over the last year or so, Synaptics’ upcoming IronVeil technology -- as it is now known -- is... Read more...
Sometimes it's the enterprise sector that gets dibs on the coolest technology, and so it goes with a trio of TCO-optimized, high-performance solid state drives from Samsung, all three of which are based on three-dimensional (3D) Vertical NAND (V-NAND) flash memory technology. And get this -- the fastest of bunch can... Read more...
Anyone who follows the NAS game will likely recognize the name Synology, but we’d wager most home users aren't quite as familiar with them. That’s simply because Synology storage devices have typically targeted a more advanced crowd, such as readers of this website. If you had ever met someone who was running a Synology NAS at home, you knew... Read more...
Can big data companies really budget for an all-flash memory storage scheme? SanDisk is hoping to make it possible with its new InfiniFlash storage system that delivers massive capacity, extreme performance, and rock solid reliability to big data and hyperscale workloads while reducing data center complexity and...

One of the more interesting stops on our recent trip to Amsterdam was at The Hague Security Delta. For those of you who might not be aware, The Hague is the name of the government seat of the Netherlands (and yes, the article is capitalized). The Hague Security Delta (HSD) is the official title of a collaborative effort between Netherlands... Read more...
Despite the many doom and gloom predictions in the PC market, worldwide system shipments during the third quarter didn't fall as much as expected (only minus 1.7 percent, according to IDC). Partially as a result, hard drive maker Seagate Technology performed better than expected during the company's first quarter of its fiscal year 2015 ended... Read more...
