The First Carbon Nanotube Computer

September 27, 2013

MIT Technology review reports on the first carbon nanotube computer.

A carbon nanotube computer processor is comparable to a chip from the early 1970s, and may be the first step beyond silicon electronics.

It’s a start …

The Shrunken

September 23, 2013

Coming soon …

Gigabyte lists this Brix system’s total volume at 0.72 liters, believe it or not. The guts of this thing include a quad-core Haswell R-series processor with Intel Iris Pro graphics and 128MB of embedded DRAM serving as an L4 cache. It’s not going to be the fastest gaming PC around, but it should be reasonably capable. Its CPU performance should be nearly as good as anything available in a desktop system.

Inside, there’s room for a single 2.5″ SATA drive and two mini PCIe x1 expansion slots.

Curiouser And Cursioser

September 10, 2013

So now Obama likes Putin’s offer. Where before he had Samanther powers pour cold water on the Idea, as the Obama corcles the drain.

Syrian Rebels ‘Giving U.S. Targets To Defeat Regime’…

Obama: Attack ‘Absolutely’ on Hold if Syria Abandons Chemical Weapons…

Opens door to ‘diplomatic track’…

German paper says intercepts show Assad rejecting Sarin use…

RICE The liar of Benghazi … Obama sends Susan Rice to Hill to brief lawmakers…

PAPER: Intel officials warned president al Qaeda was strengthening…

Oh goody …. U.S. Intelligence Official Says Syrian War Could Last for Years 

Well that’s some list of links and just shows how muddled Obama’s foreign policy is.



Tablets : Where The Surface Stands Tall — And Falls Flat

August 20, 2013

Microsoft is gearing up for its second-generation Surface. Here’s what it should hold onto, and what it should change.

C-NET has this article … Whimpy performance, the RT for the most part, established to post, and expensive, say the nay sayers.

The pro is still pricey but performs better…


WiGig Wireless to Crowd Out WiDi & HDMI?

August 19, 2013

Here is an interesting story on the next WIFI technology iteration … WIGig … it aims to outdo WIFI AND WIDI … Yes that’s a mouthful of jargon, but that’s the way they like it … Looking like it’s going to be, as even Intel, the perpetrators of WIDI even has to respond … Microwave technology invades your space. The cables are an endanger species, I bet your wife will like that.

WiGig Wireless to Crowd Out WiDi & HDMI?

So what do we do with WiGig? Imagine, if you wil a laptop or ultrabook… and now imagine that device wirelessly docking to a display with a full array of USB, FireWire and Ethernet ports. W’re talking about using WiGig technology across the board to power video, connectivity and audio. So if all goes well, WiGig will be expanded and supported in much the same way as PCI and USB were and have been. If the new ultrabooks take off as we think they will, the need for this level of docking will increase dramatically and inject some much-needed consumer demand into the marketplace.

WiGig is an organization promoting the adoption of multi-gigabit speed wireless communications technology operating over the as-of-now unlicensed 60 GHz band.
