MyMemory proud to be supporting James Walker at the Hungaroring 200930 July 2009 16:33:09
James Walker is a 25 year-old Jersey-born racing driver, currently racing for P1 Motorsport in the World Series by Renault: a recognised feeder series for Formula One, and just one step away from James' ultimate goal of becoming Jersey's first F1 driver. James is one of the UK's most promising racing drivers and one of its most naturally talented.
Round 4 of Renault’s World Series was at the Hungaroring in Budapest, Hungary. James raced well during his laps putting in some of the fastest laps of the day, but unfortunately due to a small mistake and a little bit of oversteer James spun into the Armco ending his charge.
James, although dissapointed with the race, is still lying in third place in the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship.
Well done James from all the team at MyMemory.

Intel - SSD Pricing Breakthrough 22 July 2009 14:05:13
Intel has claimed that a breakthrough in the design of solid state drives will allow prices to fall to as low as 60 per cent of the current cost.
The drop is down to the use of new 34nm Nand Flash memory chips in place of the older 50nm chips. The smaller die size allows for lower production costs, making the drives more efficient and cheaper to manufacture.
Intel will price the first of the new drives to system builders at £137 per unit. The 80GB X25-M model will replace a drive of the same size which currently costs £363.
Intel hopes that the lower costs could widen the potential market for SSD hardware. SSDs are faster and more efficient than disc-based drives, but the high cost of manufacturing has limited the technology to high-end and specialised systems.
