Happy Macintosh release date! Well, what have we here? Rumors? Really? Already? Well, I guess the new year wouldn't be complete with rumors and speculation about the iPhone 6 and every single Apple product out there, but, really, we've only had the 5S for what? Barely more than two months. You people are insatiable. Well, then, let's dig into these juicy new handset rumors and see what's what.
For those of us who can’t afford pricey solid-state drives, but still need a speedy solution for storing data and transferring large files, RAIDs can fill the void--and provide much more storage capacity, dollar for dollar. When configured as a RAID 0, two drives working as one can offer impeccable performance for media, while a RAID 1 can offer a reliable backup solution as one hard drive mirrors the other. Now, hard drive manufacturers are offering Thunderbolt-compatible RAIDs to help bridge the gap between affordable storage solutions and Apple’s new high-speed technology, and both Western Digital and G-Technology have entered the market with their own Thunderbolt RAID offerings.
There’s some fierce competition between hard drive manufacturers, and Hitachi isn’t going to let Seagate enjoy the 4TB spotlight for even a full week. The company’s G-Technology division has introduced their own 4TB disk and is packing two of them inside a whopping 8TB G-RAID external case complete with Thunderbolt.
