Plextor PlexEraser Eco-Friendly Disc Destroyer

Plextor PlexEraser Eco-Friendly Disc Destroyer

If you normally get rid of your discs via a shredder, then you may not be aware that the leftover plastic shards can give off a chemical from the disc coating that is harmful to the environment. Well, either you didn’t know, or you simply don’t care. I’m sure for those of us that shred discs once in a blue moon, the effect is not so critical. But for industries with lots of confidential information stored on discs that must be destroyed, the eco-friendly Plextor PlexEraser PX-OE100E standalone drive will do the job leaving them ready to be recycled without any data being recoverable. Works with eight types of disc formats in both 12cm and 8cm sizes. Priced at $249.

Plextor’s PX-B900A Blu-ray DVD Burner

With all this noise about Sony getting their own Blu-ray DVD drives ready for the masses, it's easy to overlook the other Blu-ray options available. Plextor has announced their first Blu-ray burner, the PX-B900A, an internal ATAPI drive for normal PCs. While no price has been announced yet (though it should come in lower than the price for a comparable Sony drive), the unit will be able to write to BD-R and BD-RE discs at 2x while also supporting DVD-RAM, DVD±R/RW, and CD-R/RWs. And for all you computer lovers, the drive comes in both black and white to match whatever fits your style. Look for the new drive to hit shelves this fall.

You’re overestimating Google’s driverless cars

Never tested in snow or heavy rain, potentially ignoring police, and confused into swerving by crumpled newspaper: Google's self-driving cars face more than a few lingering problems before they're truly ready for the road. The search behemoth's plans to start tests of its control-free "pods" out in public had already collided with California's DMV, which demanded that at least rudimentary steering and pedals be fitted before they'd be road-legal, but that may only be the start of Google's headaches.

Ikea’s secret to amazing catalogs? CGI, and lots of it

Ikea’s secret to amazing catalogs? CGI, and lots of it

If you recently wondered why their staged rooms looked so good while yours looks so plain, the answer may be a bit more complex than you think. Turns out, they probably didn’t stage anything - it’s CGI.
