I’m a sucker for a good mythology retelling, so I’m keeping an eye on BBC’s Atlantis.  The series, filmed in Wales and Morocco, will be available to the U.S. on BBC America, Supernatural Saturday, starting sometime this fall, 2013.  BBC has put out a trailer, and while the entire Greek mythology certainly has huge potential,  it’s really hard to tell if this is going to be a winner or a not-so-great retooling.

Just released by BBC, the new season 5 Merlin trailer.  Julian Murphy (Merlin co-creator) has this to say about the new season:

“I think it’s interesting because you saw a glimpse (of a stronger, focused and more powerful Merlin) at the end of the last series, particularly when he killed Agravaine.  We’re really interested in taking him on that journey with all its dangers and the temptations it will bring, so that will be a big part of the fifth series.”

Also be on the lookout for some guest stars (hint: Game of Thrones).

Merlin will be carried on BBC One in the fall and for U.S. audiences on Syfy in January, 2013

New Superfast Memory Chips

Ghent would be drooling over this news…IBM has unveiled the prototype Racetrack memory chip which boosts read/write speeds to potentially a 100,000 times faster than current commercial hard disks. That’s a big boast, and if the technology can live up to the claim, consumers could see an enormous change in the IT market.

According to BBC News, the Racetrack technology relies on magnetic nanowires which can convey electrical pulses. Using the electrical pulses, they can manipulate magnetic read/write heads to create the standard 1’s and 0’s that represent data. The data is raced along the wires, hence “Racetrack.” Continue Reading New Superfast Memory Chips…
