Amazon Outage Hits Netflix, Heroku, Pinterest, Instagram

Note that our Microsoft Office 365 services remained unaffected during this outage. It seems to me that clouds should be better protected against regional issues than this..

SSDs provide a huge performance boost!

SSDs are Solid State Drives – basically a hard drive made up of non-volatile memory with no moving parts. They run faster, cooler and extend battery life on laptops. I replaced the standard 500gb drive on my three-year old MacBook Pro with a new 500gb SSD and the boot time was reduced to a fraction of what it was before.

Since I’m a nerd, I clocked the boot time before replacing the drive, and it took 1 minute and 34 seconds to get to a login prompt. After the SSD was in place that time dropped to 19.5 seconds. In general the system is much faster and more pleasant to use.
