Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

A fresh piece at Tom's Hardware Guide has taken a critical look at Morgan Stanley's report on the Rambus memory platform. Van Smith reviews a Morgan Stanley document which said the share price would - ought - to reach $500, and which we managed to see a week or two back. According to Van, the positive report (which incidentally saw the RMBS share price do one of its swoop and soar tricks that it's now notorious for), has more than its share of smoke and mirrors. AMD, he points out, will introduce a DDR (double data rate) system in summer, and points out that benchmarks that Tom's Hardware has published in the past indicate that RIMMs are not all they're touted to be. Van Smith also makes the claim in the piece that Rambus RIMMs will always be inherently more expensive than the opposing technology. Rambus 'fans' are not going to like this one at all. But please, don't send us any more Flames of the Week on this topic - surely there are other stories that irritate you? ® Related Stories Rambus faces antitrust allegations Morgan Stanley's vote for a $500 Rambus Link You can find the piece here, subtitled: 'Don't Always Trust the Hands that Feed You' (cough).
