Researchers at the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC) of Georgia Institute of Technology are working on ultra-fast wireless connectivity solutions. If current efforts eventually lead to success, it could mean the end of the wired computer. The team of researchers propose the use of extremely high radio frequencies to attain broad bandwidth and high data transfer rates. Operating at an unprecedented frequency of 60GHz, the investigators have reached 15Gbps at a distance of one meter, 10Gbps at two meters, and 5Gbps at five meters. “The ‘multi-gigabit wireless’ technology uses radio frequencies which cannot penetrate walls or even human skin, meaning that it could have significant safety...

Aimbot, aimhack, cheats, or what have you is what we’re talking about today. We’ve probably all been victims of cheating at least once during the many hours we have spent playing games in front of the screen. And we all know that cheating usually spoils the fun for everyone. That might be why Intel has embarked on anti-cheat crusade, so to speak, with its research on a new anti-cheating system that would make cheating much more difficult for cheating cheaters. Known as the Fair Online Gaming System, it is unlike contemporary software-based anti-cheating technologies in that it would be built into a user’s computer and would combine software, hardware, and firmware. “Anti-cheating software can...

Don't just see your virtual world, but feel it?  As the saying goes truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, or science-fiction as the case may be.  However, just as Buck Rogers debuted the laser gun in silver screen days of old and the Jetsons gave us the picture phone, scientists are turning yet another far-fetched idea seemingly into reality. "The prototype Tangible 3D system combines a 3D display with a "haptic glove". The display creates lifelike images appear in just in front of a flat screen. It creates the illusion of depth by showing slightly different images to each of the viewer's eyes. This means no special glasses are needed. Attached to the display is a haptic glove....

At the peak of the dot-com boom (June of 2000), the unemployment rate for the computer industry was 2.3 %. Right now, it is even lower at 2.1%, which certainly comes as a green light to engineers and computer scientists. This year’s cohort of computer science and engineering students can expect an advantage in an industry that has grown steadily for the past four years. In fact, the unemployment rate for recent tech graduates has dropped to about 2%. "Things are particularly bright for software engineers, whose unemployment rate was down to 0.9 percent last quarter, compared to 1.9 percent during the same period in 2000, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.""In total of tech jobs we’re...

The garage where Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett  started  Hewlett-Packard, while essentially founding Silicon Valley  as a technology center,  has now been listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service. "The significance of the garage and the house is more associated with the entrepreneurial spirit in which it was developed," said Paul Lusignan, a historian with the National Register of Historic Places in Washington. "If you look at the history of HP, there are probably better buildings that represent its developments in technology. What this building represents is entrepreneurship." The company embarked on a campaign in 2004... Read more...

It's probably safe to assert that, by and large, DIY Small Form Factor PCs are still niche products.  Although they have been offered by the likes of Shuttle, AOpen, MSI and many others for nearly half a decade now, there's still an audible gasp that's heard from non PC-centric folks when then first encounter one.  Questions range from, "What is it?" to "What does it do?"  And even when it has been explained that the mini machine is simply a PC, albeit much smaller than usual, heads still shake, believing that a PC must be big and bulky in order to work properly.  It's a common belief, if only because whether at work, at the store, or even in their own home, most PC users have a standard mid-sized...
