Vendor politics are clouding development of web services specifications and causing confusion and adding unnecessary complexity.
Anonymous Reader writes "Late last year, we reported that OCZ was working on its 700W power supply unit and could possibly have information on it by the beginning of January, most likely around the Consumer Electronics Show timeframe. But apparently that wasnÂ’t the case, at all. OCZ did not say anything about the power supplyÂ’s development process, but we knew they were working on it initially. The 700W PSU is obviously to power NVIDIAÂ’s SLI and ATIÂ’s upcoming Multi-VPU technologies. Click here to read the full article."
Anonymous Reader writes "A valuable tool for testing, debugging, and coverage-measuring of concurrent programs. This technology works on applications of all sizes in all versions of Java. The powerful technology used is capable of finding bugs caused by concurrency much earlier in the testing process, alleviating the need to create a complex testing environment with many processors and applications."
Trying to drive blade servers down market, IBM has created new packages of its software and the compact servers aimed at small- to medium-sized businesses.
It might be hard to remember, but Sun and Microsoft cooperated over Java for a brief period in the 1990s before the partnership devolved into years of ill will and acrimony. A year after a formal reconciliation, though, there are some signs that the rivals are warming to each others' technology.
Intel has formally detailed the demise of the 400MHz frontside bus Pentium M mobile processor. This week it told customers it would no longer supply these chips after 25 November, according to company documents seen by The Register.
Electronics giant Sony unveiled on Tuesday a high-definition camcorder that is small and light enough to allow consumers to shoot high-resolution video comfortably with one hand.
After five years of development, Free Pascal 2.0 is ready. With the new compiler, its authors believe they are ready to become a larger open source development platform. In the MS-DOS world, Pascal was one of the major programming languages and is by means of Borland Delphi an important programming language in the Windows world. In the open source world, Free Pascal is the leading Pascal compiler and while open source is a bit biased using the C language, the Pascal language has a lot to offer to open source programmers.
Intel is acting to calm fears that technology in its Pentium 4 processors will enable hackers to steal passwords by reading "footprints" in the cache.
It seems that MPIO want MP3 players to become fashion accessories or so it would appear with the introduction of the FL300. MPIO are marketing this small and elegant MP3 player as "pendant jewelery" and suggesting it should be worn as a necklace. In fact there is an optional extra for this player which is a pair of specially designed earbud earphones which allow it to be worn in this way.
Far Cry developer Crytek has tacitly confirmed ATI's Shader Model 3.0-supporting graphics chips are not far off.
Intel has confirmed its second-generation dual-core desktop, notebook and server processors will not be based on the Pentium 4's NetBurst architecture, but something more akin to the Pentium III.
The problem with grid computing has traditionally been tying it down into a real-world context. The theory is great – getting lots of individual technical components working together as if they were one big resource - but it’s the wackier or conversation stimulating applications that have received all of the attention.
IBM and Red Hat are broadening a partnership to promote Linux on Big Blue's mainframe computers.
Dual-core processors are arriving in the mainstream, bringing new uncertainties about how to price software sold on the basis of how many processors it's running on. Now Hewlett-Packard executive has chimed in with an opinion that agrees with that from Sun Microsystems, Microsoft, Intel and Advanced Micro Devices--a processor should be defied as that which fits into processor socket--but that suggests eventually sidestepping the issue altogether.
Security company RSA has patched a vulnerability in its Web authentication software. RSA is advising customers to update software for its Authentication Agent for Web for Internet Information Service, after researcher Gary O'Leary-Steele discovered a flaw which could allow hackers to execute arbitrary code.
Hitachi yesterday claimed the notebook hard drive performance lead as it shipped what it reckons is the world's fastest 2.5in HDD for mobile applications.
The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has begun work on DisplayPort, a new digital display interface, designed to enable all forms of screen technology to be easily hooked up to computers.
The Web's leading standards body has launched a ground campaign to promote its mobile Web protocols in the real world.
"Grid computing" has such an amorphous meaning that an industry group has proposed a common way to discuss what grids are, particularly to business customers.
