Samsung announces high speed UFS cards…

Last day, Samsung Electronics which is World’s leading brand in manufacturing advanced memory technology unveiled industry’s first tiny memory card that could leave microSD cards in dust. These new kind of memory cards are called Universal Flash Storage (UFS).
UFS 2.0 is the internal storage standard that is designed to replace the more common, and slower, e-MMC standard. Samsung used UFS 2.0 memory for the first time on the Galaxy S6. In terms of random reading, UFS cards are 5 times faster than microSD cards.
Read speed: UFS up to 530MB/s vs MicroSD up to 100MB/s
Write speed: UFS up to 170MB/s vs MicroSD up to 90MB/s
Random read (Input Output Per Second): UFS up to 40,000 IOPS vs MicroSD up to 1,800 IOPS
Random write: UFS up to 35,000 IOPS vs MicroSD up to 500 IOPS.
UFS standard supports SCSI (small computer system interface) transfer architecture which lets the card accept parallel commands with command queuing feature. It will also support simultaneous reading and writing via use of separately dedicated paths thereby doubling the throughput.
There are two benefits to using UFS compared to traditional storage solutions: it can read and write at the same time and it can manage and reorder tasks more efficiently thanks to a command queue feature.
UFS cards come with a different sort of contact points as compared to a regular microSD card and are not compatible with microSD card slots. The cards come in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage capacities. The prices for these cards have not yet been revealed.

Sexual Assault: Catwoman defends herself against Batman

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed.

He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…

"This has helped many countries to develop when they had issues of downturn in their economy. I believe that having over N3trn available to stimulate local production going on now. "One of the things that we have done today is also trying to shorten the proc…
