Last year we reported that a Nintendo Wii storage solution was upon us that will allow you to store and load games directly off of an SD card. At today's Nintendo press conference at GDC 2009, the company has just announced that an SD menu has been added to the Wii software, and is actually available right now for download via a system update.
The new feature will allow for SDHC cards up to 32GB to be used to store and play games. You'll also have the option to download games directly to your SD card via the … Read more
Users looking for a fast, efficient program to get rid of clutter and speed up their systems will probably be disappointed by this feature-light program.
Speedup Wizard has a professional, functional look, but lacks any solid features. It offers a generic real-time view of system resources, such as CPU load, memory usage, virtual memory, and hard drive space, but lacks any way to measure these resources. The program claims to speed up a clunky system, but users have very few options to choose from to get the job done. Options include a normal- or high-speed setting and the capability to … Read more

It's one thing to have a photographic memory. It's quite another to have something called a super-autobiographical memory.
If your brain is wired super-autobiographically, you really are the weird of the weird. As well as the wired of the wired.
These are people who remember almost everything. Dates, times, names. Yes, even former lovers. The sort of people who remember that they were born on a Wednesday, lost their virginity on a Sunday and were arrested for the first time on a Monday.
SanDisk shares rose sharply Friday morning, as speculation surfaced that Samsung and Toshiba are interested in a buyout of the company.
SanDisk soared 11 percent to close at $11.05 a share, following a report in the EETimes.
The article, citing unnamed sources, said Samsung, which last year launched an unsuccessful bid for the company, and SanDisk's joint-manufacturing partner Toshiba are both interested in making a bid for the flash memory maker.
Last year, when Samsung made an unsolicited bid for the company, it offered SanDisk $5.85 billion for the company. SanDisk had rejected Samsung's overtures, citing … Read more
Taiwan's economic affairs minister has retreated from previous statements that suggested a merger of the country's ailing memory chipmakers was likely, saying it's "too complicated," according to reports.
Instead, Taiwan Memory Co., the new government-backed entity, will focus on acquiring technologies and tapping existing manufacturing plants in Taiwan, according to a Bloomberg report.
Economic affairs minister Yiin Chii-ming and John Hsuan, a former United Microelectronics Corp. executive who was appointed by the state to oversee the formation of Taiwan Memory, are also saying that the scale of the aid plans will be pared back, Bloomberg … Read more
