The Crucial/Micron M500 Review (960GB, 480GB, 240GB, 120GB)

This is probably the most excited I've been about any SSD launch in quite a while. At CES this year, Crucial announced its M500 SSD – the world's first to use Micron's new 128Gbit MLC NAND die. Courtesy of the cost savings and density increase associated with this new 128Gbit NAND, the M500 would be available in a 960GB capacity, priced at $599. That works out to be around $0.62 per GB for a truly gigantic drive by today's standards. It's exciting. For the past five years I've been learning to live off of less storage that I thought I needed, but the M500 had the potential to spoil me once again.

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

In honor of the Maserati Ghibli I thought I’d play a song with a prominent Maserati mention. It was this or Akon, y’all.

Keep an Apple Power Supply’s Detachable Plug Handy with Sugru and a Paper Fastener

Keep an Apple Power Supply's Detachable Plug Handy with Sugru and a Paper FastenerThe detachable plug that comes with Apple power supplies is handy when you don’t need the full extension cord, but they’re incredibly easy to lose if you’re not careful. To keep the plug from getting lost, you can use a bit of Sugru and a paper fastener to attach it to the brick.

All you need is a paper fastener that fits in the slot of the detachable plug and a bit of Sugru. Once you find a fastener that fits, secure it to the power supply grip with a bit of Sugru, and you’re all set. You should be able to slide the plug right on and store it on the power supply itself so you don’t lose it when the extension cord is attached.

Prenda says identity theft accuser is crazy and off his meds

Until recently, Prenda Law was a lawsuit factory, suing thousands of “John Doe” defendants for allegedly violating copyright by downloading pornographic films on BitTorrent. But late last year, when a Minnesota man named Alan Cooper accused the firm of using his name without permission as the head of one of its shell companies, the firm was forced into damage control mode. At a hearing last week, the firm’s senior officials invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering questions about Cooper’s allegations.

After weeks of dodging questions about whether the “Alan Cooper” who signed documents on behalf of the shell company AF Holdings was the same Alan Cooper who has accused Prenda of identity theft, Prenda has finally taken a position on the question. In a Monday court filing for the case formally known as Ingenuity LLC v. John Doe (PDF), Prenda suggests that Cooper knew perfectly well what he was involved with. The filing implies Cooper is lying when he says he had nothing to do with Prenda’s porn-trolling operation, and that the Minnesotan has gone off the deep end.

“Acting erratic”

For several years, Cooper served as the caretaker for Prenda mastermind John Steele, who owns property in Minnesota, north of the Twin Cities. Cooper lived in Steele’s guest house and looked after the property while Steele was out of town.
