Brilliant Designers Over Regulation Hampers Risk Reward Time To Market
I have a peripheral interest in computer technology, even though speed on my home machine isn’t particularly important. My stock service recommended a flash hard drive company back in July of last year (OCZ). It has been a disappointing investment because it has been used as a financial pump of sorts for those savvy investors who “short” the market, i.e. make money when the price goes down. OCZ threatened a lawsuit with the SEC to make a point about it. So I’ve been watching from the sidelines waiting for that big break out I would hope to happen with such cutting edge technology. As I’ve tried to keep updated on their position in the competition to survive the risk reward whims of the market, I’ve been drawn in to try to understand the concepts.brilliant people intent on solving problems. Information transfer buses got wider and wider upping the amount of information that can transfer at ever increasing clock speeds. It all becomes so mind boggling! In a new wave, smartphones and cloud computing have made servers a focus to relieve bandwidth bottlenecks. Consequently there appear to be designers attempting to move past the bottleneck of operating system software, to shuffle around the system architecture. Operating systems, like Windows act like relatively archaic gate keepers. So it looks like OCZ may become obsolete before the market settles. C’est la vie!
