    Oh that's right! If you have a RAID-0 of 4 drives, and one drive fails, then the data is lost for all 4 drives.

    There are 7 kinds of RAID setups. This specifically applies to the one called RAID...

    I'm sorry to be annoying, but how is that better than a $20 enclosure (example), which is rated at 10 Gbps (1.25 GB/sec.)

    Tangentially, USB 4 is out and will have the same speeds as Thunderbolt 3...

    I'm seeing cavalier use of B and b.

    In spec sheets, B stands bytes, and b stands for bits

    For example:


    a camera codec rated at 400 Mbps could also be written 50 MB/sec.
    a drive rated at...

    Just a regular SSD will probably beat the pants off of a RAID of spinning disks. Not only is the read speed a few times more than even a RAID, but the seek times are 10-100 times faster. So you might...

    Thanks to everyone, so far. And puredrifting, I'm sorry, you're going to have to dig out that DVD ;)

    So, it sounds like you have to test these lights yourself, is the consensus. Do you test them...

    Microsoft Windows used to come with a free program called Movie Maker, and Windows 10 replaced it with Video Editor. I haven't used either, though.

    Comparing brightness of lights

    How do y'all compare the brightness among lights when you're shopping? There seems to be inconsistency in units in their reported specs.

    One light was in lumens. It would be straightforward if...

    Agreed. They used a bigger light but the same approach. Now that I look at it, it looks like they even lit the background, just probably with some simple bounce off the ceiling.

    puredrifting, if you want one at max specs, you should wait until next year, when the 16" Macbook is expected with 12 cores (8 high-speed, 4 low-power) and probably 32-64 GB RAM at least.

    Right, that article is asking for Google to keep Chrome OS and undergird it with stronger ARM processors. That makes sense.

    Chrome OS isn't the operating system on smartphones. Android is.



    Apple has yet "to enter a higher-end portables or desktop market"?
    Apple is going to release a new operating system?

    Chrome OS already runs on ARM. Why must Fuchsia be ready by then? I know about the experimental OS, but I haven't heard yet exactly why Google's doing it.

    Not necessarily. That assumes that Premiere and Windows are 100% efficient and have no bugs. Computers are complicated beasts.
