Citius, Altius, Fortius!

18 December 2007

When ancient Greeks engraved these three words – Citius, Altius, Fortius – on the main entrance to the Ancient Olympic Games, they probably didn’t expect them to be used to such an extent they are these days. Technology has picked up the motto and new records are set quicker than ever before.

Today, the time lag between technology of a schoolboy game console and a NASA computer is no more than a couple of years. And the gap is getting smaller. Already, we expect our TVs to be slimmer than the chances of snow in London this Christmas. Soon, we will demand our vacuum cleaners to to do shopping for us.

Probably the most evident example of that is flash memory, where new records are set every month. SHD-U32GS, a new 32GB TurboUSB memory card, is 20% faster than any other USB memory cards and allows to store up to 32GB. It is not the first USB drive to reach this milestone, but it is the quickest.
