Drinking coffee & thinking about an idea for a really cool job in the future.

Heard this funny term called "the sofalarity" which is supposed to be a point in the future when all of your human needs are met. Nobody gets sick. All your needs are taken care of and you're basically on the sofa being perpetually amused.

I think something like this was already a premise in a movie, but wouldn't it be cool I'd your job was to go on adventures while some device recorded the interactions & stored the experience for the sofalarity consumers to plug into for a fee.

The most vivid & creative adventure drones would be the most prized & rewarded. Some would become experiential superstars.

Maybe the experience could be streamed to legions of paying sofalarity consumers at once?!!

I'm not sure how to feel about this. You obviously did this to make even bigger bank off the video views and get more subscribers, etc. Which seems sort of pathetic, i.e. profiting off a kind homeless man for your own gain. But, I believe the homeless man did get $1000 that he didn't have before. Did you have to get a release from him to profit off of his image? Does Google allow for that without a release? Just curious. 

Like I said, I'm torn about how to feel about this. On one hand, profiting off the misery of others is absolutely despicable. But on the other hand, he did get $1000 and you might have inspired other's to follow suit. Undecided.

@GTech_Support @BuffaloAmericas Hi, 
 
I know SSD drives are recommended, faster, etc. but I didn't want to spend the extra $ right now. 
 
Got a Buffalo mini thunderbolt 1TB (5400RPM) that I've been using for almost a couple weeks. During that time I noticed that G-Technology had a mobile 1TB thunderbolt drive with a 7200RPM. 
 
Because I can return the Buffalo for a full refund, I went ahead and spent the extra $30 to get the G-technology 7200 thunderbolt (want to keep them mobile without external power sources needed)
 
Well, the G-Technology drive arrived today so I figured I'd test it before taking the Buffalo back. I figured the 7200 would be faster, but not night/day difference. When I run the Black Magic hard drive speed tests, and the AJA speed tests, they both show consistently on all tests that the G-Technology is faster like 132MB/s vs 100MB/s with the Buffalo.
 
Here's the strange part, when I copy a large folder or large file to the Buffalo and time it, the speed is about the same and sometimes faster than the 7200 G-Tech drive. Consistently.
 
How can it be that even though the 7200rpm G-Tech tests faster in every way via speed tests, the Buffalo 5400rpm actually writes large files at the same speed if not slightly faster?!

Skip, rotational speed is only one aspect of the end performance you'll see on any given product.  In fact, platter density is often more important than rotational speed.  For example, a 1 TB single platter at 5400 rpm is a better design than two 500 GB platters at 7200 rpm.  Both drives in this example are 1 TB capacity, but the internal design is quite different.  Although the 5400 rpm 1 TB platter spins slower, the heads have to move less to access more data, making it ultimately faster in many cases.  It is a physics issue, twice as much data is available on the same physical space so more data can be extracted with less physical movement.

You can also look at third party tests:
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2013-mobile-hdd-charts/-05-Write-Throughput-Maximum-h2benchw-3.16,2990.html

Here you can see that while the fastest HDD might be 7200rpm, there are various 5400rpm drives that beat out 7200rpm drives (such as WD Red and Blue beating out Black).

Without knowing the exact HDD model that is in each unit, it's hard to say, but I guess, long story short, rotational speed alone can be deceptive and doesn't always mean it's faster at moving data than a slower RPM.  The only truly objective statement is that 7200rpm drives spin platters faster, which is only one small component of data transfer speed.

Analogy:  It is similar to comparing a low RPM car engine compared to a high RPM engine.  While the high RPM engine moves physically faster, it may not move as much air volume or make as much torque, thus the lower RPM engine could produce more final output (measured in horsepower).  Horsepower is a derivative of torque and RPM (HP = Torque x RPM ÷ 5252).  So while RPM produces more horsepower, it is not the only part of the equation.  Like Honda S2000 with 9k RPM vs Dodge Viper with 6200 RPM engine. (Sorry I'm a car and computer nut)

I hope this helps.

A wandering soul breaking the chains of fear to surf free atop majestic wavelengths of visible spectrum.
Introduction
Skip Hunt, born on the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma, is a professional photographer in Austin, Texas. He picked up a 35mm camera in the mid-1970s and has never stopped sharing his unique vision via photographic images.

Many moons ago, he was bitten hard by the wanderlust beast and has been canvassing the globe ever since. Visionary artists such as Pete Turner, David Lynch, Cindy Sherman, and André Kertész set Skip's sight on a fine-art horizon early on.

His insatiable thirst for rich color and even richer cultural exploration keeps him on the road most of the time. When he's recharging his batteries, he calls Austin, Texas home.
