Biometrics is rapidly advancing, but privacy policies, the technology backbone to effectively connect the scanners — and perhaps most importantly — a market beyond the U.S. government, are lagging.
Your next laptop could have a continuous power battery that lasts for 30 years without a single recharge thanks to work being funded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory. The breakthrough betavoltaic power cells are constructed from semiconducto
Such a storage capability would enable nearly 30,000 feature length movies or the entire contents of YouTube – millions of videos estimated to be more than 1,000 trillion bits of data- to fit in a device the size of an iPod.
"He, like all of us, knew that people would immediately start to hack the iPhone and unlock it for use on T-Mobile and other services abroad. And once that happened, the benefits could far outweigh the costs of such a hack."
The teenage hacker who found a way to unlock the iPhone so that the device would not be restricted to use solely on AT&T Inc.'s cellular networks will be trading his reworked gadget for a new Nissan 350Z and (three) iPhones."
Computers go big. 'Sarcastic Gamer' Video making fun of the Microsoft "Surface" computer.
A group of scientists claim to have discovered a way to store 500GB worth of data on DVD-sized discs. The scientists are members of the Microholas Project which plans to double the storage capacity to 1TB by 2010.
A proposed amendment to the current copy protection license governing DVDs would completely ban all DVD backups, and prevent DVD playback without the DVD disk being present inside the drive. Is scheduled for a vote on Wednesday, according to
I didn't think much about the announcement, but I was quite impressed after I saw the demo. WOW!!! - The Future is slapping us in the face
The $10 offer is available to customers in the 22-state AT&T service region, which includes former BellSouth areas, who have never had AT&T or BellSouth broadband. Local phone service and a one-year contract are required. The modem is free.
A man found "not liable" for a photo radar ticket in Houston, Texas still gets collection notices from the city.
Microsoft has unveiled a new touch-sensitive coffee table-shaped computer called "Surface".
According to a new study published by respected analysis firm IDG shows that the digital information grows at a rate that will soon outpace the rate at which storage devices evolve.
Dell Inc., the second-largest maker of personal computers, has chosen a version of the Linux operating system to sell with its consumer PCs as it works to win back customers from rival Hewlett-Packard Co.
Mish Shedlock would like to share his Windows Vista experience so you might avoid some of the same problems.
IBM said it will be able to make microchips faster and more energy efficient by stacking components on top of each other, a breakthrough that cuts the distance an electrical signal needs to travel.
The claimed speed for the CM8060 is a maximum 70 to 71 pages per minute (ppm) and an average of 60 ppm for black-and-white pages and 50 ppm for color, with the CM8050 just 10 ppm slower on each score. That by itself will be enough to turn heads, but
The end of Moore's Law is expected to come more quickly for memory chips than processors because of the different ways in which they work. Whereas the circuits on processors act as pipes that guide streams of electrons, memory chips use pools of
Intel announced today that the company is releasing its first entry into the flash-based hard drive market.
The world's largest hard drive maker, announced hard drives will include a chip with built-in encryption that makes it impossible for anyone to read data off the disk, or even boot up a PC, without some form of authentication.
Intel Corp. quad-core microprocessors that work at an energy-efficient 50 watts per processor will officially be on the market starting today.
The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration confirmed Thursday that it built a special chip used in a disputed demonstration of quantum computing in February. NASA engineers used their experience with sub-micrometer dimensions and ultra-lo
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) today announced the availability of its 690 chipset, the company's first integrated chipset for AMD processors that includes the ATI Radeon X1250 graphics processor.
Google research has shown that built-in disk drive diagnostics only predict about half the drive failures that occur. Modern disk drives have a built-in self-test and diagnostic facility termed Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology—SMART
IBM today revealed first data about a new embedded DRAM device, which the company claims achieves record access times. The technology is expected to debut in 2008 as part of the 45 nm generation of IBM processors.
IBM has devised a way to triple the amount of memory stored on computer chips and double the performance of data-hungry processors by replacing a problematic type of memory with a variety that uses much less space on the slice of silicon.
Following their march from standard processors to dual-core and quad-core designs in 2006, Intel researchers have built an 80-core chip that performs more than a teraflop of operations using less electricity than a modern PC chip.
The Internet has an ever-growing role to play in allowing free expression across the globe, but only if attempts to reign it in are unsuccessful, Google Inc. Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt, said.
