Drive delivers fatal blow to optical discs' data

Help is on its way for all of you who are sick of breaking optical discs with your bare hands: the impressively named PLEXERASER.

This laser-equipped box of destruction can wipe your data off the face of the planet (well, ok, off the face of an 8- or 12cm disc) in minutes for DVD±R DL/±R/±RW and CD-R/RW, although it doesn't work with CD- and DVD-ROMs or DVD-RAM. For when it does work, you're looking at a strip rate of 3 minutes for a single- and 6 minutes for a dual-layer DVD.

Plextor's 167.1 x 253.5 x 53mm, 1.7kg PLEXERASER will cost about YEN 25,000 when it goes on sale in the middle of September in Japan.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
