News that Intel and Micron Technology are developing 3D Nand flash memory products to deliver 10TB solid state drives in a standard 2.5in format was of keen interest to V3 readers last week.
The companies hope that the advanced technology will have uses in a broad range of areas, from smartphones and tablets to digital cameras, but also in data centres and network storage appliances.
Elsewhere, BT’s return to the mobile market caught the eye, no doubt especially to existing broadband customers of BT who could pick up a deal from £5 a month, although this provides only 500MB of data.
Meanwhile, as the country gears up for the General Election, it was revealed that all 650 MPs who take up office after May will be handed a brand new iPad Air 2 as part of an effort by the government to reduce paper use and streamline the deployment of technology.
However, Labour has questioned the wisdom of the move, suggesting that it effectively locks the government into Apple’s iOS platform at a time when it is trying to use more open source technologies and document formats.
