Virtual Alcohol Control
Scientists are using virtual reality to help alcoholics cope with situations that might get them in trouble. This ScienCentral News video explains.

Houston, we have a problem !
Captain: Stuff is endangered after a big problem emerges.
Houston: Well, it's called a bull...t
However, quick relief fix is under the way.
We will make emergency Space Shuttle launch as soon as possible.
BAD HARDWARE: What the hell Space Shuttle crew eat when they have made toilet pump broken?

Dell deceived customers
Intel's Celeron unnecessary leaks PC power and your money
The EU would stop Intel from marketing its microprocessors at a discount to PC makers
FRANKFURT -- The European Union's competition authority plans to take action against Intel Corp.'s sales and distribution practices and will publish an official decision late this summer, a newspaper reported.
Citing Brussels sources, the Financial Times Deutschland said Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes had already decided on the facts and that her department had gathered enough evidence after years of investigations.
In the report released Tuesday ahead of publication Wednesday, the newspaper said the EU would stop Intel from marketing its microprocessors at a discount to PC makers.

As slower Core Duo is , faster Intel inside TM PC performance!
This is quite counter intuitive. Lower clock generally should mean lower performance.
Try yourself here.
Seems that Intel continues its bad hardware sequel tale.
Bad conclusion: Strong NVIDIA requires weak Intel.
Or even Via instead of Intel.

Telectroscope, a visual amplifier was an insane telecom idea
Alexander seemed to be suggesting that this invention, which he called a Telectroscope, would act as a visual amplifier, allowing people to see through a tunnel of immense length… a tunnel, the drawings implied, stretching from one side of the world to the other.
By 1890, had accumulated enough to set off with a workforce and tools to begin digging.
The device was designed soundless.

If someone buys AMD, Intel CAN recall the license
The contract strongly suggests that no company can buy AMD or to be more precise, no company could buy more than 50 percent of AMD.
Terrifying :). FUD guys should know what the native 4 core is (see the pict below). Obviously, the finding relates only about the licence use of Intel's BUS. However, until the 2011 , AMD will completely abandon Intel's old stupid congested bus in favor of their own HT communication technology. So, if AMD would be sold by then, Intel might only pull off its licence for the dead bus technology.
Striking: Janitors on strike at Silicon Valley tech giants
Something is seems rotten in the Danish Kingdom, err. Silicon Kingdom.

Shocka Prescott resemblance : Intel's Nehalem as a mainstream only in 2010
Just as BAD HARDWARE predicted.
Deadline looms for Intel to produce details of emails missing in AMD antitrust case
Sudden police raids of Intel stuff for missing email court evidences are on. Quite on the left is one Intel's pretty loud barking journo fan. More here.
LATEST: Intel confess emails are not lost just can't be found.
That is exactly what police on the picture above is looking for.
AMD's promising three core babies in a phenom position !

82" HDTV features a resolution of 3820x2160 pixels
The prototype display has a massive 82” size and features a resolution of 3820x2160 pixels, which results in a total screen resolution of 8.3 mega pixels. Current 1080p TVs run at 1920x1080 pixels or 2.1 mega pixels.
All my digital pictures on my Hires HDTV slide. Thousands of them.

AMD planning to outsource CPU production to TSMC in 2H08
IBM quite close to breaking petaflops barrier
Their target is June Top 500 list.
Big Brother tool for total Internet control of 5M people
Deep packet Inspection is the name of the tool.
If at one moment only 10% of people is online that means the area of 50M people is under control.
In the next 4 years with improvement of technology nations of 500M people will be under deep packet inspection of only one Internet spy. The whole world practically.
Sun announces B3 Opteron servers
Some eight months later than initially expected, Sun is rolling out a family of 1U, 2U and blade servers with AMD’s quad-core Opteron servers. The offering covers eight different server models, the 1U X2200 M2, X4140, X4200 M2, X4400, the 2U models X4240, X4600 and X4440 as well as the blade server X8440.

Google makes 16Gb flash chips shortage !
USA Federal agencies have used faked Cisco routers
Faked in red China I suppose.
The concern was that the Chinese parts could provide hackers with backdoor access to U.S. databases, but the investigation found the fake parts did not compromise homeland security.
Eh, now it is easier to me. Except those faked were used at the only 19 gateway points to access any federal agency. Alas, in that case it would be hard to confess. Isn't it?
Anyway we are eagerly waiting Magee 3rd effort ( The third time God helps - Bosnian tale) named Examiner to find this possible breach.Or his Indian stuff simply doesn't read Bosnian tales?

Amazing Columbia shuttle HD recovery
Columbia's fragments were painstakingly and exhaustively collected. Amongst them was a 400MB Seagate hard drive which was in the sort of shape you think it would be in after being in an explosive fire and then hurled to earth from several miles up with a ferocious impact.
The Kroll people managed to recover 90 percent or so of the 400MB of data from the drive with its cracked and burned casing.
Badhardware: 400MB HD in 2003? Today 400GB HD is a home PC standard.
In HP servers it is 820 TB.
Currently, 45% of all hard drives in the world, from PCs to data centers, are sold by HP.
Climate modellers need 100 Pflops supercomputer.
The modellers say they need a centre with computing power of 100 petaflops – two thousand times greater they have access to today.
"We think we know how to do it, but we need the computing power," said Jagadish Shukla, chair of a meeting of 150 top modellers drawing up the plans
AMD plans 12 core server for 2010
Intel and SGI build Petaflops supercomputers
Well, this might make a lot of wiping waves around.

US Border upload !!!
Travel agents' group Abta stormed: "It's another ratcheting up of Fortress America. It's certainly not a good thing for passengers - it is rather Big Brother."
Hydra better than Nehalem
AMD calls Rev D cores Hydra and this are the chips that will really go against Nehalem.
200 Pflops supercomputer
A 200 PFlops system that is built on today’s common architecture could cost up to $1 billion and consume 200 Mega Watts – which is the equivalent of what a city with 100,000 people consumes.
According to the researchers, such a computer would make global climate change predictions more understandable and more credible.
Badhardware comment: Yeah more understandable global climate change today means additional 200 MW poured in. :)
Intel paid off Acer, Dell, Gateway, major Japanese manufacturers, and system builders and distributors "to close their doors to AMD."
Most of the details in the 108-page document, unsealed Monday, have been blacked out, due to a protective order restricting the disclosure of trade secrets and other confidential dealings involving the parties in the suit. AMD sued Intel in June 2005, accusing the chipmaker of illegally using its monopoly to shut AMD out of the market.

AMD must double market share to survive
Intel to begin chip production on 450 mm wafers in 2012
Yes, 2012 is 10 years later, but hmm who will in industry follow Intel? Only Samsung or no one else?
That will make 450 mm development costs prohibitively high for Intel. And if something fail, that might be complete disaster, only 4 years ahead.

Ultra low power Sterling cycle PC cooler
Without power supply, of course.
Intel announced long distance 10 Gb wired Ethernet card
Actually 10 GbE wire cards are some time at the market, but they were wire length restricted to 10 meters range only.
Now already installed data center ethernet wire cablings may be used for 10 Gb Ethernet. For a modest price of $1K. Next year the prices should drop at least 2 times.
In 2002 1 Gb Ethernet card gained the same status ahead of 100Mb Ethernet cards.

Union’s War Protest Shuts West Coast Ports
“We’re loyal to America, and we won’t stand by while our country, our troops and our economy are being destroyed by a war that’s bankrupting us to the tune of $3 trillion,” the president of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Bob McEllrath, said in a written statement.
They support terrorism, and why all of them 250 000 shouldn't be confined to Cuba located resort?
