Earlier, we brought you the news that Microsoft were intending to have Windows Vista ready for RTM (Return To Manufacturing) by late October or early November. According to online source - DigiTimes, this appears to have been fast tracked, somewhat. Microsoft are now expected to have the new operating system ready this month, before officially launching the product to business customers in November.

"Last week's release of Windows Vista Release Candidate 2 (RC2), or the build number 5744, has reduced the number of bugs from 2,479, which were found in the RC1 build number 5728 version, to 1,450" (DigiTimes, 2006)

This month, the number of bugs is expected to be further reduced to 500 or even below.

Hitachi has raised the bar, yet again. How does 940GB of storage capacity sound at a measly US$340? Hands up who wants one of these babies to house their Simpsons re-runs :p ;)

That's got to be the greatest idea ever, w00t! I imagine the read/write speed would be far superior to tape backup drives as well. Can't wait to check this stuff out.

Impressive - but how do they react to shock - ie vibration, being dropped or the like?

and what about the speed of it?

any ideas.

Im a boxing fanatic, and have 2 x500gb hdd, and get scared if it crashes. i usually just buy another hdd as means of backup.

this will be great if its not too slow

and when is the release date btw?

I have a feeling that if the Blu Ray version comes out it won't do well because I think it will be very expensive because Blu Ray is very expensive.
