A group of MIT engineers have developed a new way of building lithium-ion batteries that could lead to smaller, lighter, and more efficient power packs. What’s really exciting is that these new li-ion batteries can charge in a matter of seconds rather than hours. We all use li-ion powered devices regularly. Cell phones, laptops, and even electronic cars can be powered by these types of batteries. Today’s li-ion batteries are pretty good at storing large amounts of power, but they’re also slow at gaining and discharging that energy.   The slow power rates of today’s batteries are a result of...

It’s easy for us to distinguish a computerized voice from that of a real person.  Even though we can generally figure out what the computer is trying to convey despite poor pronunciations and bad phrasing, understanding doesn’t eliminate the frustration many of us feel when trying to deal with an automated human substitute. Now, thanks to new technology developed by IBM scientists, we may not have to tolerate robotic sounding voices for much longer. Supposedly, the new computerized voice is nearly indistinguishable from a human’s voice. Part of what makes the new computer voice sound realistic... Read more...

The X38 chipset that Intel is feverishly preparing for a launch this fall, is due to ship with 2 new “extreme” technologies: “The two new technologies are named Extreme Memory and Extreme Tuning Utility. Both new marketing lead architectures will be introduced along with the X38 chipset in October this year, according to motherboard makers.” Extreme Memory is most likely a technology similar to that of NVIDIA's SLI Memory. In theory it should allow users to plug a pair of supported memory modules into an X38-powered motherboard and have the motherboard either automatically select the best performance... Read more...
