COW Blogs : gary adcock's Blog : A hard drive that will last forever (or as close as we will ever need), Speedgrade and Talking to your laptop
Scouring the web as I do when I have down time often brings some interesting tidbits- this one about a Sapphire coated hard disk drive that could store your data for a millennium

Problems are 2-fold,
how do you make something readable in the future even though we as a civilization have sought out extraterrestrial life before in a manner that all but invited trouble.

The other issue is cost, since the prototype was over $30,000 USD the only people I know that are in the market for these would be the US government or certain Google employees that have already sold their stock. Not on that list would be anyone from RIM or Nokia.

On another note,
This interesting blog post from Eric Philpott talks about the history of Adobe's new Speedgrade Application, with a link to an insightful interview with Iridas founders Lin Kayser and Patrick Palmer here

I have started tesing of Mountian Lion and I have to say, that some of the new features are going to be as amazing as they are confounding- I have a hard enough time talking to my phone or iPad,even with Siri. While talking to my computer is not new -Dragon Speaking has a slew of marginally passable tools from but none come close to Siri, my only complaint is that to use Siri you have to be connected, something many of us do without on our computers from time to time.

What I am worried about is my computer talking back
