In case you are looking what to reading during the weekend I found a couple of articles. I like hardware stuff so all of them are mostly that. The guys at www.bit-tech.net have some very good hits.
Intel 45nm technology overview High-k, Metal Gate Transistors and Penryns.
Intel talks about Nehalem, Larrabee & 32nm Event more acronyms - Nehalem, Tukwila, Larrabee, Sandy Bridge.
My guess is that we will remember one for a long time - Nehalem (just like web now know Conroe).

In the last few years RAID has become really quite popular. Once purely in the domain of high-end enterprise servers, today, any self respecting enthusiast motherboard had better have onboard RAID if it wants to be taken seriously. The abundance of onboard RAID controllers mean that it’s not unusual to see small arrays in today’s home computers. The reasons for this can be for increased speed, increased reliability or simply for bragging rights. After all, two (or more) disks are better than one, right?
One thing I can add is "Never do a RAID 5 array on your MB integrated controller (P965 to be specific), NEVER".
Introduction to hard drive technology
So then, what do all of these fancy letters mean? NCQ, TCQ, RAID, IDE, SCSI, SATA, MTBF, SCSI vs. SATA, Asynchronous Notifications. Article for HDD basics.
