CHEAP: This 1TB Sandisk laptop SSD is at its lowest price yet

When choosing your laptop’s internal storage, you historically had to decide between speed and capacity. Fast SSDs – at least, the ones you could afford – were somewhat limited in storage. Old-school mechanical HDDs, although excruciatingly slow, could at least contain an ungodly amount of songs and movies. But now, you don’t have to make that compromise. High-capacity SSDs are cheaper than ever. Take, for example, the snappily-named SanDisk SDSSDA-1T00-G26. This 2.5-inch SATA drive comes with 1...

What Are NVMe Drives, and Should You Buy One?

Samsung The biggest upgrade you can make to your old PC is faster storage. Other components like the CPU and GPU have certainly improved in the last decade, but everyone will appreciate faster storage. NVMe is the latest and greatest storage interface for laptops and desktops, and it offers much faster read and write speeds than older interfaces. This comes at a cost, so depending on what you use the computer for, buying an NVMe drive may not make sense. What Are NVMe Drives? Non-Volatil...

Akai Force: hands-on preview of the post-PC live-in-a-box music tool

The leak was real. Akai have a standalone box that can free you from a laptop, when you want that freedom. It works with your computer and gear, but it also does all the arranging and performance (and some monster sounds and sequencing) on its own. It’s what a lot of folks were waiting for – and we’ve just gotten our hands on it. Akai have already had a bit of a hit with the latest MPCs, which work as a controller/software combo if you want, but also stand on their own. The Akai Force (it’s no...

P = NP Need Not Give a SAT Algorithm

In Bill's post earlier this week, he asks if there is a fixed algorithm such that if P = NP, this algorithm will correctly compute satisfiability on all inputs. While I believe this statement is true because P ≠ NP, I would like to argue we won't prove it anytime soon. Bill links to a TCS Stack Exchange answer by Marzio De Biasi giving a fixed algorithm that would get SAT correct except on a finite number of inputs if P = NP. Here is Marzio's algorithm. Input: x (boolean formula) Find the mini...
