Maxell Japan recalls DVD-R media, labeling ink were to blame

Maxell Japan recalls DVD-R media, labeling ink were to blame

I quitted achieving data in DVD optical recording media ages ago, but my Aunt Sally in Osaka still can’t get enough of the lowest cost per gigabyte’s optical storage. She wouldn’t be please though, to hear that stacks of al-cheapo Maxell DVD-R of hers are being recalled due to manufacturing error.

Hitachi has initiated a recall on its Maxell- DVR optical disk lineup due to labeling ink issues that could contaminate disk surface to dirt.

Intel & Hitachi partner on SSD development

Intel & Hitachi partner on SSD development

Given how well Intel's mainstream and enterprise solid-state drives are doing, you wouldn't think they'd need to partner up with anybody to move forward.  Still, there have to be benefits from getting cosy with Hitachi, the world's third-largest hard-drive manufacturer.  The two companies have announced a partnership to jointly-develop SSDs.

Hitachi Japan have announced two new projectors, the CP-X809J and the CP-WX410J.  Intended for business use rather than home entertainment, the projectors still could appeal to individual users not least because of their brightness levels.  The WX410J comes in at 3,000 lumens, while the X809J raises the bar even further at 5,000 lumens.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

Netbooks made their typical strong showing this week, with ASUS announcing their intention to put 3G HSUPA into the Eee PC 901.  Meanwhile their N10 was reviewed and deemed the first netbook "suitable for serious gaming", a promising title indeed.  Lenovo's S10 also hit reviewers' benches, making a strong - if at times warm - case for the smallest IdeaPad, while Packard Bell unveiled their 'dot', targeted much more at the budget end of the scale.  They'll have a fight on their hands, though; SlashGear reviewed the Acer Aspire One this week too, and when it comes to value for money it's a tough one to beat.

Arguably the biggest news of the week, however, has been T-Mobile's G1 - the first Android-based handset to be officially announced.  Our sister-site AndroidCommunity.com ran a Live Blog of the whole event (and gave away a G1 to one lucky forum member), and we've got the photo galleries and hands-on video to show for it.
