Reducing security risks from open source software

IBM has introduced a fresh family of hard drives and claims it now has the biggest capacity notebook drive in the world. Compaq and Gateway have already committed to using the units, claimed IBM. It is to show the drives at Comdex/Fall at Bally's Hotel. The Travelstar 14GS has a capacity of 14.1GB and is 17mm high. According to Big Blue, it weighs less than a baseball. The other two members of its notebook family are a 6.4GB, 9.5mm hard disk aimed at the ultra slim family of notebooks and a 10GB Travelstar 10GT, which is 12.5mm high. Although IBM will include the hard drives into its ThinkPad family of notebooks, it will also sell the units through its OEMs and distributors. But eager road warriors will have to wait until December, which is when the units will arrive in limited qualities. ® Click for more stories
