It was two years ago when we last wrote about Millenniata and its Millenial Disc for ultra long-term data storage of somewhere between \"1,000 years\" and \"forever.\" If you'll recall, it works using a \"synthetic, rock-like\" layer that your data is \"etched\" into, rather than burned onto like other

Apple might not be ready to add Blu-ray to its computers yet, but prosumers can finally burn their creations directly to the discs (with a 3rd party drive of course) from Final Cut Pro 7. Otherwise, there's also the alternative of burning that HD footage you couldn't bear to squish onto YouTube to

Samsung has rolled out its fastest DVD burner yet, with the Super-WriteMaster (ha!) SH-S203N running at 20x for DVD±R discs, 16x for dual layer DVD+R variants, 12x for DVD-RAM, and progressively slower for other disc standards. It's all kitted up with a SATA connection standard, and supports

At first glance, one may assume that being able to legally burn a DVD of a recent film download would be excellent progress in enabling consumers to better manage their media, but it comes as no surprise that the DVD Copy Control Association has laced the process in stipulations. Reportedly, the DVD

Indian manufacturing giant Moser Baer today announced development of 8x-capable Blu-ray Disc media, which would allow for a 2-hour movie to be recorded in under 15 minutes. This speed corresponds to around 3.3GB a minute, or 55MB a second, assuming a full dual-layer disc. Competing format HD DVD is

Sure, building up a campfire in order to roast some eats in the wilderness could be fun for awhile, but for the reported \"two billion people that use open fires as their primary cooking method,\" we're sure it loses its luster somewhere along the line. The University of Nottingham is hoping to change

Once the realm of mighty giants with huge pocketbooks, burning a dual-layer Blu-ray (or HD DVD) disc might be yours at ten times normal speed starting in 2008, when Japanese firm Nichia Corp. will start production on a higher-powered laser diode for use in recorders. The diode emits pulsed light at

Having an overheating laptop nestled on your legs isn't exactly the most comfortable way to work, but even if your Li-ion doesn't erupt on your mid-section, other forms of damage can still ruin your day life. In an effort to quell the scalding that so often occurs on today's lap-burners, Intel has i

No, the word \"recall\" isn't entirely synonymous with \"battery,\" but in this case, we're afraid the dreaded overheating Li-ion curse has struck again. This time the recall is hitting Clarion's N.I.C.E. P200 in-car navigation / entertainment unit, and the problem seems to be the same as nearly every o

We'll be the first to admit that the whole \"smash this object\" craze is getting a tad out of hand, but the latest rendition of demolishing a perfectly functional PlayStation 3 is just revolting. While we've witnessed Nintendo's Wii being cautiously dissected and publicly mangled, a couple of mounta

Unbox and iTunes have been getting all the attention lately, but movie download \"veterans\" like CinemaNow still have a few tricks up their sleeves. CinemaNow is still the only service to allow DVD burning of select downloaded films, and now they're about to get their first same-day title, which
