postheadericon Plugable DC-125 dock turns your solitary PC into a multiple workstation powerhouse (video)

We’ve seen a few docking stations ’round these parts that use the venerable DisplayLink technology to great effect, but nothing quite like this before. Plugable’s DC-125 USB 2.0 Docking Client connects to your PC allows you to connect your display, speakers, keyboard, and mouse via one USB port — small potatoes, right? Well, if said PC has a compatible multi-user OS (such as Windows Multipoint Server or Userful Multiseat Linux) you can daisy chain docks to add several terminals to the setup. Terminals! Now you can relive the dark, backwards days when you had to go to the college computer lab to get any work done — in the comfort of your own home. Available now for $65 a pop. Get a closer look after the break.

postheadericon Supermicro and Fusion-io team up to deliver new SuperServers

Fusion-io‘s been in the flash memory game for some time, but until now it has been known primarily for screamingly fast PCI Express-mounted flash storage solutions with wallet-crushing prices. Those drives are primarily aimed at the enterprise market, so it seems logical for the company to now enter into an OEM agreement with Supermicro to make NAND Flash servers. The aptly, if not modestly, named SuperServers can perform over 2.2 million sequential I/O operations per second (IOPS) and over 1.4 million random IOPS — for comparison, the OCZ SSDs we saw at CES are an order of magnitude slower in IOPS, and they aren’t exactly sluggish. Supermicro also claims that the new servers speed up enterprise applications by ten times while using only one-tenth of the power. Impressive numbers to be sure, but we shudder to think of how much the SuperServers will cost. A second mortgage for a server’s a sound financial decision, right? PR’s after the break.

postheadericon Plex Media Center App comes to Android, Windows server available

Everyone’s other favorite spinoff from the XBMC family tree has some major news this week, as Plex has released a Media Center app for Android that mirrors most of the functions already available for iOS devices. Available now on the Android Market for $4.99, it brings local and streaming media to the phone over WiFi, or 3G from a Mac (and now, Windows PC) running the server software, but users will have to wait a few weeks for an upgrade adding remote functions (or use any of the 3rd party apps already on the Market.) With plugins for apps like Netflix, Hulu and BBC iPlayer it’s a formidable competitor in the mediastreamer market out of the gate; throw in support for PCs plus integration into LG’s 2011 HDTVs and Blu-ray players and we’re ready to pick Plex as the platform to keep an eye on this year. Check out the details in the press release after the break, we’ll toss in a link to the Windows server once we find it / it’s posted. (Update: The link is down there but it’s still delivering a dmg instead of an exe, we’ve been told it should be up later this afternoon. Thanks, Chris!)

postheadericon HP donates server to WebOS Internals, makes homebrew its boo

Palm’s always been pretty cozy with the homebrew community, and now, with a donation to WebOS Internals, HP’s showing that they’ve got love for hackers, too. Just in time for the lover’s holiday, HP announced plans to donate a ProLiant DL385 server to the independent developer’s resource — a gift worth $10,000 and packing 32GB of RAM and 8TB disk space. Considering all the new devices we saw at the webOS event this week, the added capacity comes at just the right time. We always thought diamonds were a nice gesture, but we suppose, in this case anyway, nothing says I love you like an HP ProLiant.
