The Single Point of Failure

,----[ Quote ]
| So, when it comes to a single point of failure what comes to mind are these 
| examples of software designs: Windows Registry file vs. /etc configuration 
| fies in Linux/Unix systems and a single Outlook PST file vs. mbox vs. maildir 
| formats for desktop email applications.   
| [...]
| Although the following comparison of email programs does depend only on the 
| design concept used for mailbox storage but also on application specifics, 
| the performance aspect still heavily depends on mail storage architecture.

Microsoft admits scratch problem with Xbox 360

,----[ Quote ]
| There hasn't been much discussion on the fact that the problem exists
| by consumers, but untill now Microsoft has always somewhat denied the
| problem and never proposed a solution.
| The Dutch television show Kassa, which deals with customer complaints,
| has been nagging Microsoft about this problem for several weeks, they
| did tests with Xbox360 setups and filmed (and proofed) that the Xbox360
| is indeed responsible for scratching game discs, when not moved, placed
| on a stable table and under the best possible conditions.
| [...]
| The television show also reported that while this issue is now an issue
| in the Netherlands (it is also widely covered in regular news), it
| could become a global problem for Microsoft in the future. Therefore
| I would recommend anyone who is facing the same problem to contact
| their local Microsoft office and point them to this article.
