    Could A Computer Guarantee It’ll Never Lose Your Data?

    Researchers at MIT believe they have found a way to create a file system mathematically guaranteed not to lose track of data during crashes. Their initial sample is slow by today’s standards, but the techniques could work in more sophisticated designs.

    IDC now expects worldwide PC shipments to fall 8.7% this year and not stabilize until 2017. If the predictions hold true, there will be five years of declining shipments in the PC industry, IDC reports.

    The limited edition headset is themed after the squad of Stormtroopers donning the signature orange shoulder pauldron in “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” and will launch to coincide with the release of Star Wars Battlefront.

    The ultra-high-capacity battery in the WP10400 can charge an iPhone 6 about 3.7 times; the WP12800 can charge it 4.7 times. The 3A (1A+2A) dual USB power output means you can charge both a mobile phone and tablet at the same time.
