Fewer than 10 minutes of that crucial videotaped conversation made it into Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires, but the rest — believed to be lost in shipping — is now heading for movie theaters Nov. 16 and 17.
As Moore predicted, computers continue to become exponentially faster, while their components have become much cheaper. William Nordhaus, an economist at Yale University, examined 100s of devices—from the first computer to the Apple II to modern PCs—
A quick trailer I cut together of scenes from TNT's The Pirates of Silicon Valley. Cut and edited to the original trailer for The Social Network. I sampled some footage of old Windows/Mac operating system shots for the beginning. I personally think t
The outage started in RIM's European data center, and cascaded across the world. Mr. Lazaridis said the outage was the largest in its history and likely caused by a hardware problem. "We don't know why the switch failed in the particular way that it
Despite knowing he was dying, Steve Jobs worked for more than a year on the products that he believed would safeguard the company's future.
India introduced a cheap tablet computer Wednesday, saying it would deliver modern technology to the countryside to help lift villagers out of poverty. The computer, called Aakash, or "sky" in Hindi, is the latest in a series of "world's cheapest"
The company announced that the new phone will run from $199 to $399 when it goes on sale in the U.S. on October 14. The original iPhone 4 (8GB), meanwhile, will be knocked down to $99, and the the 3GS will be free with a two-year contract.

Amazon.com Inc introduced its eagerly awaited tablet computer on Wednesday with a price tag that could make it the first strong competitor in a tablet market that has been dominated by Apple Inc's iPad. The new device is priced at $199
Under "Koomey's law," it's efficiency, not power, that doubles every year and a half.
Not much, as it turns out. And it's helpless against the widespread threat of bureaucracy and self-interest.
Connecting the two could make it possible to perform complex calculations that are far beyond the power of conventional computers.
Researchers at IBM's Almaden, California research lab are building what will be the world's largest data array--a monstrous repository of 200,000 individual hard drives all interlaced. All together, it has a storage capacity of 120 petabytes, or 120
Apple Inc. (AAPL) Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said he’s resigning and recommended Tim Cook be named his successor. Jobs said he would like to continue as chairman.
A new computer chip will help tackle one of the Web's weak spots—the fact that most data is exchanged without any protection against hackers or eavesdroppers.
California — A white cursor blinks in the monitor’s top left corner. From beneath, a slab of machinery whirs, shudders and falls expectantly quiet.
The list of medical gadgets vulnerable to being hacked wirelessly includes pace makers, intravenous pumps, and blood pressure cuffs. To find out whether an insulin pump trusted to keep his blood sugar levels safe could be hacked he found he could rem
If you bought a MacBook Pro last year, tough beans: It just got outflanked by its slimmer, smaller cousin, the MacBook Air.
Applied Materials, the world's leading supplier of manufacturing equipment to chipmakers, has announced a new system for making one of the most critical layers of the transistors found in logic circuits.
Heat exchanger technology--the cooling machinery that ferries internal heat away from your PC, your computer, your air conditioner, and other appliances--hasn’t changed too terribly much for decades.
We dug into the design of the cable to find out why Apple felt justified $50 for some plastic-wrapped copper wire, and why Thunderbolt may have a hard time outside of the higher-end storage and video market — a fate similar to Apple’s FireWire.
IBM researchers in Zurich--working alongside their stateside colleagues--have demonstrated for the first time that phase change memory (PCM) can reliably store multiple data bits per cell over long periods of time.
A Japanese supercomputer is now the world’s fastest, unseating the previous record-holder by nearly a factor of four. The K Computercan perform 8 petaflops — that’s 8 quadrillion calculations per second.
