If an Apple patent application that started making the rounds yesterday is any indication, a future version of the iPod or iPhone might be able to remotely access the entire iTunes media library sitting on your computer at home via a Wi-Fi or wireless telephone connection. Instead of having to carefully pick and choose what subset of your media you will carry with you on your device (because of its limited storage capacity), you'll have instant access to all of your media--that is, assuming your device has an active Internet connection and you remembered to leave your computer on. Before we dive into the details, here is the high-level description of the technology as it appears in the Abstract... Read more...
Now that buying a fixer-upper in the 'burbs, putting in mildly radioactive granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and laminate flooring, and then selling it is a recipe for losing money instead of getting rich quick, people looking to make  a fast makeover buck have turned their attention to the Internet. They troll the tubes looking for floundering websites that might have potential, buy them for a little money, change a few fonts and get some Search Engine Optimization going, then try to sell them for a profit. Peter T. Davis, who calls himself a “Web property developer,” said he owns about 20 Web sites, including message boards about model railroads and coin collecting.Mr. Davis... Read more...
This coming Monday, June 9, should be a big day for Apple. It is the first day of Apple's 2008 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC08) in San Francisco--which not coincidentally--has been at sold out at capacity for some time now. When Steve Jobs takes the stage at the Moscone Center at 10 a.m. PT, he is expected to unveil the much-anticipated, 3G-capable, iPhone 2.0. News.com's Tom Krazit reports that Steve Jobs should also be announcing that the iPhone App Store will be open for business: "The App Store is going to be the only way to get official third-party iPhone applications onto your device. Developers have been submitting their applications to Apple for testing and verification since... Read more...

The Data Center, HotHardware's new community for IT professionals, is sponsored by Dell's Future of Storage. This article is part of our ongoing series of topics and discussions related to IT, Enterprise Storage and related storage technologies. While other hard drive manufacturers have been busy churning out Solid State Drives (SSD), Seagate has been sitting on the SSD sidelines because it felt that the cost was still too high to produce and sell drives using this relatively new storage technology. The company has announced that it will finally be getting its SSD feet wet when it releases a its first SSD drive sometime in 2009.  Before consumers get too excited about the prospect of another...

There is a significant amount of untapped power to be found in even low-end discreet video cards when they’re simply drawing 2D user interfaces, and Adobe plans to put that power to work in their next version of Photoshop, which is internally being referred to by the code-name "Stonehenge".  Digital media enthusiasts are more likely to know it by the title Photoshop Next when it eventually ships, hopefully before the end of the year. There are numerous theoretical advantages to using the GPU to handle some of the heavy lifting, but theory and practice have a very long history of clashing.  So what kind of real world results can we expect? The primary result after this addition... Read more...
Just in time for the hotly-rumored release of the 3G iPhone, AT&T announces that it will complete the U.S. deployment of its 3G broadband service by the end of June. This will complete a $20 billion investment AT&T has made since 2005 in upgrading the infrastructure of its almost 350 markets--of which 275 markets are already running at 3G speeds. "With the new addition of HSUPA [High Speed Uplink Packet Access] technology, AT&T 3G users can enjoy uplink speeds between 500 and 800 Kbps. The technology is available in all but the few remaining AT&T 3G markets and will be included in all future deployments. The new upload speeds complement AT&T's 3G download capabilities, which...

Specs for the next-generation NVIDIA cards have leaked onto the web, but we advise readers not to place too much faith in these specs until the cards actually ship.On to the specs:“The GTX 280 enables all features of the D10U processor; the GTX 260 version will consist of a significantly cut-down version of the same GPU.  The D10U-30 will enable all 240 unified stream processors designed into the processor.  NVIDIA documentation claims these second-generation unified shaders perform 50 percent better than the shaders found on the D9 cards released earlier this year.The main difference between the two new GeForce GTX variants revolves around the number of shaders and memory bus width.  Most importantly,...

As many of you are no doubt aware, Intel is planning to officially release a new mainstream chipset in a few weeks, the P45.  From a feature standpoint, the new P45 is somewhat similar to last year's P35.  The P45, however, will have official support for PCI Express 2.0, with a more flexible lane configuration for multi-GPU graphics, and the chipset itself is being manufactured at 65nm as opposed to 90nm.  Using the more advanced process to build the chips should result in lower power consumption and lower operating temperatures as well.  The P45 will also be paired up with a new ICH10-series southbridge, which is similar to the ICH9 sans a few legacy features. Asus showed... Read more...
