David Perlmutter (Intel Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobility Group) delivered the final keynote of the first day of IDF. Perlmutter started out by declaring that notebook shipments are about to surpass desktop shipments. He predicts that within the next 10 years, Intel will be shipping over one billion Intel Architecture-based (IA) mobile devices per year. As to the growth of the mobile platform, Intel had only 35 notebook design offerings in 2002. In 2008, there are 244.       Perlmutter stated that the first notebooks were heavy, slow performers, and had poor... Read more...
While Craig Barrett delivered a rather non-technical, but socially-charged keynote earlier in the day at IDF, Pat Gelsinger's (Intel Senior Vice President and General Manager, Digital Enterprise Group) keynote address by contrast was all about the tech. Immediately following Pat Gelsinger was David Perlmutter (Intel Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobility Group). David delivered the final keynote of the first day of IDF and talk about Intel's mobile offerings. The details of the keynote are available here: IDF Day 1: David Perlmutter: "Where Will 'On-the-Go' Go?"... Read more...
Intel may be considering closing their operations in the Philippines.  There isn't any estimates on who Intel might be able to sell their facility to, or what such a sell might mean for the world's largest chip maker or the numerous employees.“Located south of Manila and employing 3,000 people, Intel Technology Philippines Inc is the US firm's second offshore assembly operations center in Asia and also serves as a test site.The company said it has invested around 1.51 billion US dollars in the country.”The senior management met with employees Wednesday, but the fate of Intel’s operations in the...

Just in case you shot right down to the news section this morning and missed the link at the top of the page, we wanted to pop in and let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and power consumption of Western Digital's Caviar and RE.2 GreenPower 1TB hard drives.  In addition to their large capacities, these drives offer a number of proprietary features designed to lower their power consumption and acoustic profiles, like IntelliPower, IntelliSeek, IntelliPark, and in the RE.2's case RAFF (Rotary Acceleration...

We wish the current "green" trend would have happened a long time ago, and we actually hope that it results in a permanent mentality adjustment rather than fading like so many trends do. We are happy to see that companies are now expected to be somewhat environmentally-conscious. We love to see companies compete on metrics like performance per watt and we know we aren't the only ones who have an affinity for new architectures and designs that result in both efficiency improvements and performance gains. It wasn't so long ago that efficiency and performance were almost always inversely... Read more...
Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, we're writing this morning to let you all know that we've just posted  a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features and performance of Western Digital's Caviar RE2 750 GB hard drive.  Western Digital’s RE2 lineup is targeted at workstations and servers, which need lots of disk capacity along with top-notch RAID performance and long-life reliability.  At its core, the RE2 lineup is identical to the SE16 lineup for the performance desktop, but the RE2 has a slightly different feature set,...

When it comes to 7,200 RPM desktop drives, there are few names in the industry that are quite as well respected as the Western Digital Caviar lineup. It’s a time-tested brand which has consistently held its own, in terms of raw performance, acoustics, and reliability. While the Caviar name once stood for a single lineup of drives, Western Digital has now branched out the Caviar name to different markets, slightly tweaking the feature sets to address different requirements. Beyond the standard Caviar drives, which are now targeted for the low-end market, we’ve got the Caviar... Read more...
The parent company to such publications as Electronic Gaming Monthly and PC Magazine, Ziff Davis, has filed for voluntary Chapter 11 in order to restructure their debt.  The decision to file was reached by a group of concerned investors as well as senior management.“Importantly, as part of the restructuring, the ad hoc noteholder group has agreed to set aside up to $24.5 million to fund the Company's operations during the Chapter 11 case as well as after the Company emerges from Chapter 11. These funds, together with the Company's current cash reserves and cash flow from operations, will be... Read more...
Intel has been performing nearly flawlessly of late, but a rumor has surfaced regarding their allegedly revised release schedule.  At this time it is only a rumor, and shouldn't be taken as fact until we hear more.  Allegedly Intel's 45 nm High-K isn't working too well with low-end chips.“The problem with this one is that changing the process like that would basically need a complete re-layout of the chip. Unless this was planned from day one, the effort involved would be huge, expensive, and very unlikely to happen.The next bit is sort of related, word is trickling out that Intel scrapped...

It appears there are a number of threads at HP's support forums.  These forums posts first started in June 2007, and there is no official HP solution yet.  In fact, customers are helping themselves, or at least trying, but there appears to be little or no HP response on the forums.Tipped off by a reader, David Berlind investigates what appears to be a serious problem with the Wi-Fi feature on some Pavilion notebooks. Despite many customer complaints listed on HP's website over a period of nearly five months, there's been little response from HP. Instead, customers have banded... Read more...
Maybe someday, but not now.  At the "Robot Athletic Meet 2007" in Japan, robots met on the soccer field.  Though they showed some moves (some were remotely-controlled and some automatically), none were channeling Pele.For the contestants, most of the movements were, well, mechanical and even a little clumsy -- far from the acrobatic grace of premier-league soccer stars.Several small humanoid robots taking part in "Robot Athletic Meet 2007" toppled over as they collided on the indoor field, their every move buzzing with the sound of their motors.In most cases, the robots -- some remote-controlled...
