As we celebrate Earth Day, Google Earth has announced that it will support the Leap Motion controller with its desktop application.  Google Earth works on PC, MAC and Linux.  A billion downloads strong, Google Earth will showcase the Leap Motion 3-D control device, due to be released to the public in a few months.

I recently came across this USB 3.0 dock offered on Newegg for around $35, the Syba Connectland CL-ENC50038.  It features the ability to connect up two 3.5" harddrives at the same time, or two 2.5" size drives, or a combination of the two.  It supports up to 3TB according to the documentation, though a 4TB Western Digital that was tested also worked.  In this article I'll show you some of the features and some real world benchmarks of the drive from my own testing.

Recently, NewEgg had a fantastic price on this Seagate STCA4000100 4TB USB 3.0 external hard drive.  It was at that time I decided to purchase three of these to move to a more traditional NAS setup, either with a Drobo style NAS or a home built server based design.  I'll have more on the home built variety in a future article, but for now I wanted to show everyone the method to cracking this guy open and some test results on the drive itself, which in most cases is a 5900 RPM drive, unless you were one of the ones that ended up with a 7200 rpm model.  This whole process actually takes less than five minutes and should not void the warranty.
