Speaking of hard drives, Seagate, one of the biggest HD manufacturers, is going to announce the first 3 terabyte version later this year. Due to the limitations of the LBA (logical block addressing) standard, anything larger than 2.1Tb is problematic.

From Htcyou: One more win for GSM T-Mobile? The company may have scored the high-end Samsung Galaxy S, which is most the powerful Android smartphone in the world.

When MCV wrote that Sony was planning to showcase the PSP2 at E3, VG247 decided to delve deeper into the rumors and has concluded that with 99% certainty, the Playstation Portable sequel will not be shown at E3.
