Super Talent is now offering a 128GB SSD drive for only $299. The drive connects to the PC or laptop via a SATA II interface and offers read and write speeds of 100MB/s and 40MB/s, respectively. I am sure more manufacturers will use SSD drives instead of hard drives for their netbooks in the near future. [JKOnTheRun]

by Jeremiah on September 30, 2008

We didn’t go to CEATEC 2008, but those who did spotted this 15mm thin 37-inch HDTV from Hitachi. While details are blurry, this  1,920 x 1,080 panel comes with a nicely designed stand and rumored to be in production sometime in 2009.  Kinda makes our bedroom LCD TV look fat and overweight heh.  [Engadget]
