HP outbids Dell for storage specialist 3Par

A week after Dell agrees to buy 3Par for $1.13bn, HP throws a spanner into the works by offering $1.5bn for the storage specialist.

3Par specialise in software for organising data on corporate servers and provide their services on a subscription based service over the  web.  Their software is designed to make the most of available space on data storage hardware  to minimise costs using a technique called ‘thin provisioning’ by which extra capacity can be added as needed.

With this aquisition, HP would increase their revenue from data storage to around 13% of total.

KitGuru says: After the aquisition of Palm to strengthen its portable device offerings, HP looks to expand further into the data storage market.

PC Building Simulator – Building the Ultimate Watercooled PC

This time last year I checked out PC Building simulator for the first time and was surprised at how accurate and fun the gameplay was. The title allows you to plan and build you own virtual PC system with a range of components from various manufacturers. PC Building simulator has had quite a few updates over the past year with the biggest one being the addition of Custom watercooling. I thought this was a great opportunity to pick up the game again and plan my dream PC complete with a custom loop.
