Apple recently made an announcement that its iTunes online music service has reached the 3-billion-downloaded-songs mark. In fact, Apple’s iTunes Store recently outshined both Amazon and Target and took the number three spot in the list of America’s largest music retailers. Apple’s vice president of iTunes, Eddy Cue, stated, “‘We’d like to thank all of our customers who have contributed to this incredible milstone.’” Some may feel that the 3 billion mark isn’t such a big deal. After all, iTunes was started about many years ago, and at 99 cents per song, the revenues generated would be a little under $3 billion over a period of about 6 years. On the other hand, we shouldn’t forget that iTunes... Read more...
After suffering from heavy losses, AMD takes some time to reorganize its two-year map for server and PC chips. According to AMD executives, the number two CPU maker has plans not only to reveal a new server-chip design in 2009 , but also to push forth faster versions of its Barcelona quad-core server chip later on in the year. The company’s short-term goal is to get the Barcelona “out there” into the market. While the Barcelona chips that will be available this quarter will only clock at 2GHz, AMD has plans to deliver faster versions in Q4, according to Randy Allen, corporate VP of AMD’s server products division. “Barcelona will come in three varieties, Allen said. The mainstream version will... Read more...

Home users and Small Business owners can often benefit from technologies that are normally out of reach for some general consumers. Home users may benefit from having a file server for sharing media, transferring large files between PCs, or even remote access while away. Small Office users can utilize the same features as well, while also benefiting from automated backup capabilities, centralized printer management, or even hosting a domain. The problem is, many of these things often require a level of understanding or experience that many home or SOHO users may lack or simply may not have the time to learn.  For larger businesses, network administrators...

Much of the professional sports world has some kind of drug testing system in place, but there hasn't really ever been talk about drug use in the Cyberathlete Professional League. While drugs and alcohol have always been banned from the league, there wasn't much in the way of what to do with suspected abusers. The new 2007 terms have been changed though, and the CPL now reserves the right to conduct drug testing at its own discretion. This only applies to those who are believed to be breaking the rules, and the CPL will not be drug all participants in the event. "There's a story at TwitchGuru that some gamers have interpreted to mean... Read more...
