The first appearance of a military patronage state was around 1258 after the Mongols sacked Baghdad from the Muslims. This was shortly after the Crusades and the Muslim armies were fatigued and weakened. No one expected the Mongols to come through the way they did and defeat one of the great powers of the time. As a way of maintaining control over the territories they had recently acquired the Mongols developed what would come to be known as a system of ruling called "military patron states." Because the Mongols were nomadic herdsman they would pillage a city (often with devastating death counts and brutality) and then move forward to the next city. The conquered city was then left to rule itself with one catch, they had to pledge patronage to the Mongols military force.

What is the use of solid state drive?

Sorry I couldn't figure a way to explain it without being super technical. Flash drives are often used in products that operate on low power and those which may have to undergo harsh conditions. Flash memory is non-volatile and hence flash drives do not need to be backed up with batteries. Flash memory is solid state. This implies that nothing in it is mechanical. Everything is purely electronic. Flash memory has a grid of columns and rows and a cell having two transistors at each point of intersection in the grid. A thin oxide layer separates the transistors in each pair. One transistor in the pair is known as a floating gate while the other is known as a control gate. The floating gate can hold electric charge. It is in electrical isolation due to the oxide layer separating it from the control gate. So, any electrons placed on the floating gate stay on it. This makes flash memory non-volatile. The working of flash memory is precisely the addition and removal of electrons to and from the floating gate.
