Google is aggressively working to improve the speed with which we access the Internet. Google Fiber is one of its better-known efforts because it directly benefits regular users: Google Fiber provides the citizens of many major U.S. cities with affordable Gigabit Internet access. Now, the company is joining forces with other tech companies to build FASTER, an undersea cable system that will transfer data between the West coast and Japan at speeds that are, as Google’s Urs Hölzle points out in a Google+ post, “About ten million times faster than your cable modem.” FASTER will...

Today we're evaluating NEC's new MultiSync EA244UHD, a 24-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor. As part of NEC's EA series, this monitor is intended for high-end desktop users as opposed to professional graphics users, though there are features of the EA244UHD that may tempt potential customers who fall into the latter category. Things that separate this monitor from a traditional desktop display include extras like up to four-way display matrix support (there are multiple inputs for connecting multiple PCs), a ControlSync feature that lets users control the settings for up to half a dozen daisy-chained displays,...

While you were busy blinking, a new development was fast tracking its way onto the monitor scene. We're talking about the transition to 4K, otherwise known as Ultra High Definition (UHD). No matter what you want to call it, the technology shift treats your eyeballs to four times as many pixels as the current standard, which is Full HD 1080p. That's a huge increase, not just in the number of pixels, but in the resulting picture quality that comes from having so many more dots crammed into the same space. Usually when there's a major shift in technology, it comes with a standoff between hardware... Read more...
If you came here looking for something smooth and easy to digest, you may want to have a peek at a post above or below. All kidding aside, NEC's latest contribution to the enterprise realm is a real hum-dinger, digging deep into networking and efficiencies that all but the most hardened of IT administrators would fully appreciate. Let's start with a bit of background: NEC launched its ProgrammableFlow networking suite in 2011, which took advantage of the OpenFlow protocol -- a technology that enabled "complete network virtualization, allowing customers to easily deploy, control, monitor, and manage...

Japan’s NEC has created a smartphone that actually uses liquid cooling, which is a development that is either awesome or stupid, and we’re not decided as to which it is yet. In any case, the NEC Medias X N-06E smartphone indeed has a water-filled heatpipe that pulls heat away from the device’s processor, apparently dispelling the heat through the phone’s polycarbonate exterior; there’s also a graphene sheet on the motherboard, providing a nice additional heat buffer. The NEC Medias X 06E also features a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (1.7GHz) chip, 13.1 MP camera, and... Read more...
Lenovo has a really good thing going with its computer business as it wrestles with Hewlett-Packard for the shipment crown, and though the company continues to experience better growth in the PC market than its rivals, it also recognizes there's a mobile movement taking place. Perhaps for that reason, Lenovo is reportedly looking to acquire NEC's mobile phone business. Citing a source that doesn't want to be identified, Reuters reports that NEC is in talks with multiple potential buyers. If true, it marks a shift in priorities for NEC, which up to this point had claimed that its mobile unit was... Read more...
With each quarter that passes, it's clear Lenovo knows how to run a business. A little less than three weeks ago, Lenovo announced it had raked in more than $8 billion in revenue and $141 million in profits during its first financial quarter, representing year-over-year gains of 35 percent and 30 percent, respectively. The company is outpacing the competition and has gone from holding a 7 percent share of the global PC market in 2006 to 14.7 percent currently, trailing HP by a miniscule 0.2 percent. The point of all this is to not read too much into Lenovo's declining stock price. Oh, did we mention?... Read more...
Haptics is one of the next big advances for touchscreen technology, and while there are always new ideas for tactile technology coming down the pike, the field is still wide open to innovation. NEC and the Tokyo Institute of Technology partnered up on an interesting concept that utilizes directional force to shift the whole touchscreen to give the user some tactile feedback. It’s actually sort of a primitive idea in some ways; there are four wires, each attached to a corner of the screen and operated by tiny motors, and they respond to input gathered by optical sensors in the bezel. What... Read more...

Most people associate business with boring, but there's little about NEC's MultiSync EA273WM-BK monitor that's a snooze-fest.

We're only four days into the New Year and already Advanced Micro Devices would probably like to take a mulligan. According to reports, Quanta Computer Inc. is angry at AMD and it's ATI division for allegedly selling defective mobile chips unsuitable for the toasty confines of a notebook. Quanta used the supposedly bad parts in notebooks made for NEC, many of which went on to malfunction. Now Quanta is suing AMD for breach of contract. "Quanta has suffered significant injury to prospective revenue and profits," the company said in its complaint, according to Bloomberg. The lawsuit also alleges... Read more...
