Intel considered

That they want to start using 32nm technology of chip manufacturing in year 2009. There are still some technical problems with this process, source of extreme ultraviolet light (shorter wavelength is needed) need to be strong enough to let manufacture going fast, also mirrors used within have to be extreme precious, but they are working on all problems.

Iomega presents drive with capacity 1 Tb

Device with capacity eqaul to 1 Tb, named oficialy Iomega Desktop Hard Drive XL is one of rrecent most advanced drives ever seen. It should present 1 terabyte capacity (it is containing 4 harddrives with capacity 250 Gb) But its reliability is lowered (4 times bigger probability of mistake). Question is, if Iomega will sell that device without its drives, 250 gb is not top capacity this day. Lets hope similar devices can be bought withut drives.

FSB on 1333 mhz

Should contain new Intel Woodcrest processor (continuation of 65 nm xeon). That soiunds good, but even better news is, that cipset for those processors (called Blackford) should provide that bus twice, one for each core, which can really bring high throughput. First those processors should be on market in 2nd part of 2006, so lets wait.
