    The Korean War (1950–armistice, 1953) was a military conflict between the Republic of Korea, supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea which was supported by People's Republic of China (PRC), and with air support from the Soviet Union. The war began on 25 June 1950 and an armistice was signed on 27 July 1953.

    That's why I find Fusion-io an intriguing company.

    Fusion-io builds flash memory onto PCI Express cards that plug into server expansion slots, letting customers move beyond hard drives' physical enclosures and SATA interface. That means data can be written and read faster overall, in part because SATA has worse overhead--in other words, bandwidth that must be used to run the communication protocol rather than for the actual data being read or written.

    The Salt Lake City start-up isn't the only PCIe storage maker in the market--Texas Memory Solut…

    European bank shares fell again on Monday as news of an €80bn-€90bn bail-out for Ireland failed to ease fears of a deepening sovereign debt crisis across the eurozone.
