Seagate Upgrades Storage To 160GB

by arnieswap In reply to Technology News -- Courte ...

New hard drives use vertical system that saves space and increases capacity by 25 per cent.<br />
(<a href="">Swapnil Bhartiya </a>: <a href=""> EFYTimes</a> )<br />
<br />

<font face="verdana" size="2">Tuesday,
January 17, 2006: Seagate Technology has introduced a line of hard
drives using pioneering space-saving technology. The Momentus 5400.3, a
2.5-inch diameter hard drive, is designed for notebooks that hold 160GB
of storage, the equivalent of 40,000 songs or nearly three hours of
high-definition video.<br />
<br />
</font><font face="verdana" size="2"> The drive relies on perpendicular
recording, in which the bits are stacked up vertically. This increases
the amount of data that can be contained on a single platter. The drive
makes 5,400 revolutions per minute. Seagate will later come out with
drives that spin at slower rates (which lowers cost and energy
consumption) as well as those that spin at higher rates for faster data
retrieval.<br /><br />Seagate
is also planning to bring perpendicular recording to its 3.5-inch
diameter drives, used in PCs and digital video recorders, as well as
1-inch diameter drives, employed in MP3 players and phones.<br /><br />Seagate
of Scotts Valley is one of the first to make the switch to the new
technology and said that it planned to convert its entire line by the
end of the year. It has begun to ship the Momentus 5400.3 hard drive,
with up to 160 gigabytes of capacity, which should make its way into
high-end laptops in the next few months.</font><br />

Republic Day To Bring Telecom Revolution: 'One India? To Go All India

by arnieswap In reply to Technology News -- Courte ...

(<a href="">Swapnil Bhartiya</a>: <a href=""></a&gt<br />
<br />
Republic Day will lead India towards a telecom revolution, with major
telecom players all set to launch ?One India? by 26 January.

<br />
<br />

<font face="verdana" size="2">Monday,
January 16, 2006:  BSNL, Tata Teleservices, Hutch and Airtel are
gearing up for the launch of ?One India? plan across the country by 26
January. As per the plan, the said companies would offer a single
tariff structure across various circles in the country.<br />
<br />
</font><font face="verdana" size="2"> The only exception to it is -- Idea
Cellular has no such plans. ?Integrated players with their own national
long distance (NLD) network can take a hit on their NLD margins, but it
may not be viable for pure play operators,? said Vikram Mehmi, CEO,
Idea. <br /><br />?One
India? plan, was announced by Dayanidhi Maran, IT and Telecom minister,
sometime last year. And with the minister mooting the plan for the PSU,
the other players are following suit.<br /><br />?All players will begin
rolling out a single plan to stay buoyant in the industry and to tide
over competition. Reliance Infocomm has already rolled out its `One
India' plan and others will not like to be far behind,? said Kobita
Desai, principal analyst, Gartner.<br /><br />As the players will be
offering services at lower rates there would be an erosion of average
revenue per user, but they expect to make good the losses with increase
in volume over a longer period of time.</font><br />
