Nanocooling is cool: nanostructures thin films for computer chips cool

Posted on 05. May, 2009 by in Communication & Consumer Technology, Nanotechnology, News

85When you look at the performance curve of computer CPU according to the year of production, a variant that is known as “Moore’s Law“, we see that the clock speed, which was 3 GHz in 2002, was … 3 GHz in 2007, when it should have been 24 GHz! One reason for this stagnation – that was remedied by increasing the number of cores – is looking to increase the power dissipation and thus temperature, in processors, as their size decreases .

106Virtualization, the “cloud” (cloud computing), the “software as a service” (SaaS), as well as “Web 2.0″ are among the keywords most popular computer ads present seminars company profile post to recruitment, etc.. Without going into precise definitions as specialists eager to challenge, there is a reality behind all this: the return to centralized computing. (more…)

The Future of Personal Computing

Posted on 04. May, 2009 by in Communication & Consumer Technology, Experiments & Research


In the beginning there was Boolean logic and it was good. Mainframes begat minis, minis begat desktops, desktops begat portables, portables begat laptops, laptops begat PDAs, and somewhere in the great cyber-stew, tablets popped up. I don’t have to tell you that there have been a lot of changes in computing technology over the years. As we all know, change never takes a breather, and this leads to a dangerous predilection for prediction. This brings me to my current assignment. (more…)

Java: Hot or Not?
