Tweaktown looked at a new SSD on a DIMM from SanDisk. Unlike earlier ones which just used the DIMM slot for power and had a separate SATA connector, this one actually interfaces via the DDR3 slot. Each step on the path to creating the perfect storage device has resulted in tangible benefits, but the ULLtraDIMM has taken what could be the final step, short of fusing a storage medium onto the CPU itself. The SanDisk ULLtraDIMM DDR3 SSD brings latency as low as five microseconds by sidestepping the traditional storage stack, and communicating via the DDR3 bus.

From the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" files comes a Chinese hacker claiming to have installed Win98 onto an iPhone 6+. Running EXE binary files is currently out of the question on the Apple device, but he was successfully able to alter and change the input methods of Windows 98 to allow navigation of the operating system, as well as the ability to open the start menu and fire up Internet Explorer.

Here's a list of internet firsts. Gary Thuerk, the “father of spam,” sent out the first unsolicited email to an audience of about 400 on ARPANET in 1978.

Don't fly drones near bushfires. During large, out-of-control bushfires in Australia firefighters rely on water-bombing helicopters which will have to be grounded if a drone is spotted nearby, authorities say. With recreational drone ownership exploding into the thousands over the past year, air safety regulators and the nation's aerial firefighters fear drones are a very real threat to safety, and they warned amateur operators to stay well away.
