help the opening of the All About Apple Museum

All About Apple is THE reference point for the collection of Apple products that, where possible, will be made operating, cataloged and displayed to the public. A group for all fans of the fantastic Apple world. One of its most famous and extraordinary initiatives is the All About Apple Museum →

The All About Apple Museum is the most comprehensive museum in the world containing nearly all the production of Apple’s personal computers from the dawn of 1976 to the present day.

Now the members have started this fundraising campaign to help and finance the builing of the newest, permanent, location of the museum alongside the Savona Port Authority in Italy.

If you’re interested please point your browser to the All About Apple Museum 3.0 initiative. And spread the word!

Android, although Sony Xperia Z1S

As soon as you say anything bad about Android, you’ll get a thousand people yelling at you to load some ROM or attempt some crazy hack. I hate messing with my phone and there’s no way in hell that I’m going to spend hours “fixing” my brand new phone. If you need to hack your phone to make it work ideally, it’s garbage far as I’m concerned. Yes, I know, there are loads of people that enjoy tinkering with Android – I just don’t think a product that forces complex mending is a good product for the masses.

BlackBlaze, What Hard Drive Should I Buy?

My last two blog posts were about expected drive lifetimes and drive reliability. These posts were an outgrowth of the careful work that we’ve done at Backblaze to find the most cost-effective disk drives. Running a truly unlimited online backup service for only $5 per month means our cloud storage needs to be very efficient and we need to quickly figure out which drives work.

Because Backblaze has a history of openness, many readers expected more details in my previous posts. They asked what drive models work best and which last the longest. Given our experience with over 25,000 drives, they asked which ones are good enough that we would buy them again. In this post, I’ll answer those questions.
