    After replacing Odie with a small shell script on Tuesday 14 Mar 2006
    08:07, the following appeared on stdout:
    Yes, especially the MK4021GAS in the Apple Powerbooks. There's one in
    the workshop with the click of death formatted HFS+. Quite why they do
    that when they have UFS available is beyond me...

  2. If it is apparent to them that a product has a good warranty like a long
    on-site one, they usually do state it as a particular plus point.

    To answer my own question, on price at least, 400 GB Samsungs are on sale
    in Germany for 245 euros (£169) compared to 104 euros (£72) for the 300 GB
    drive, which makes them far too pricey (like all the other 400GB+ drives
    out there in fact). That's about 75% more per gig than the 250 & 300 GB
    drives.

    So the question as to when the 400GB units will be on sale in the UK is now
    pretty immmaterial!

    The only mags i ever bothered with were PC Pro & Computer Shopper... and
    MicroMart.

    Only reason i don't anymore - apart from the net - is the cost of them...
    it'd be nice if they dropped the cover CD's along with the price.

    Used to get them to read on the train, or in the pub, but i tend to get NME
    now instead and use the net for hardware reviews / prices.
