D3X: Nikon shoots itself in the leg.

NikonPro magazine specifies unannounced D3X, the highest resolution DSLR pro camera.
Except resolution, everything else is the same as in 14MP D3 model. Actually we knew that it is actually
the same camera with double resolution enabled. Why not earlier? Well, seems that beyond 15MP we have quality for resolution trade. Nikon would never do that choice without previously being forced by harsh competition in that direction.

Are rumors on Nehalem delay true?

Above is given the relative number of Google searches for word Nehalem. Seems that 4.5 years since the first mention of that name is not enough for flawless launch.
No delays? Lets wait and see.
Below is given sudden relative spike for combined search of two words: Shanghai AMD. :(

Seems better than the search for word Obama at Google, given below :)

Laptop hacks: AirMac in 3 minutes, Vista Sp1 in 3 days, Vaio Linux impenetrable

The prizes were $20,000 for those who would manage to break the security of the laptops in the first day, $10,000 on day two and only $5,000 on the third day.

Apple’s MacBook was first to be hacked and for the team led by Charlie Miller, an analyst at Independent Security Evaluators, two minutes were enough to break the notebook.

The team of Charlie Miller, Jake Honoroff, and Mark Daniel from Independent Security Evaluators has successfully compromised the Apple MacBook Air by exploiting a brand new 0day vulnerability in Apple's Safari web browser.

In the third and final day Shane Macaulay from Security Objectives won the Fujitsu U810 laptop running Vista Ultimate SP1 after it was installed with the latest version of Adobe Flash.

At the end of the third day, a Sony Vaio VGN-TZ37CN laptop running Ubuntu remained unhacked.

In 2007, about 197 million PCs were discarded

A lot of PCs have been disposed of because Microsoft's Windows Vista OS has created a demand for PCs with greater hardware capabilities, according to a study released by Gartner on Tuesday.

That is why Intel made results better than "expected". Small arrangement with Microsoft on Vista capable program made a big profit. Illegal profit? Don't be ridiculous, what at Intel is legal?

Greenspan and Ballmer discovered some critical flaws !

Critical flaws that defines how the world works.

I discovered a flaw in the model that I perceived is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works.

Ballmer - Microsoft:
Microsoft Device IO Control wrapped by the iphlpapi.dll API shipping with Windows Vista 32 bit and 64 bit contains a possibly exploitable, buffer overflow corrupting kernel memory.

BAD HARDWARE: US Congress recently prepared $1000B financial patch to fix Greenspan's flaw. Do not expect some patch from Microsoft soon. Because Vista is so deeply flawed, and dead born so generally no help.

Vista inCapable campaign status

The marketing program was designed to assure buyers of Windows XP computers in 2006 and early 2007 — before the launch of Windows Vista — that their machines would be able to run Microsoft's new operating system.

BAD HARDWARE recently suggested: sue them!
And why not, someone did it.

E-mail flood in Bush administration

The Clinton administration generated 32 million e-mails. Bush's administration has generated 50 times as much data — 140TB, 20TB of which is email — which soon will have to be archived through a new government-built records management system.

Well, that is amount without missing emails 2003-2006, when operation Iraqi freedom began.
Seems that Bush's administration amount of information is proportional to generated budget deficit.
And missing email's remain to US economy activities this year.

TIC without TOC: Intel may slow 32-nm ramp and reduce capital spending in 2009 !

We remain concerned that Intel may slow 32-nm ramp and reduce capital spending in 2009.
If so, Intel will have no any technology advantage over the AMD next year. Right?

In situation when PC growth has been cat by 64%.

Confirmed: All reality is virtual

The Higgs field creates mass out of the quantum vacuum too, in the form of virtual Higgs bosons. So if the LHC confirms that the Higgs exists, it will mean all reality is virtual.

Einstein used to say: All reality is an illusion, but very persistent one.

Those two formulations are pretty close, provided we assume the word virtual simply as an very persistent illusion. By the way, our mind is an illusion too. Thus, is our reality actually someone's mind?

Is there something even worse than Intel inside ? Yes, China Inside !?

The spy we all actually love.
All computers on the market today — be they Dell, Toshiba, Sony, Apple or especially IBM — are assembled with components manufactured inside the PRC. Each component produced by the Chinese, according to a reliable source within the intelligence community, is secretly equipped with a hidden microchip that can be activated any time by China’s military intelligence services, the PLA.

BAD HARDWARE: There is something even worse. Currently, 86% of those computers are too proud owners of the Intel inside label for processor used.
Being now produced in a huge fab Israel, all of them are possible sleepy MOSAD agents. MOSAD is as you know, Israeli government's spy agency.

P.S. Why is quite authorized for MOSAD to be Intel inside? Because the above mentioned PLA means Palestine Liberation Army.

Core i7's Ultimate big mouth

Independent Hardware site editor?. No, not at all. Look at here.
However, given below is bad hardware adequate response:

In the 3Q 2009, Intel expects its 45nm quad-core Core i7 CPUs will only account for 2% !!
Intel's Nehalem was 2 years behind AMD's new generation and that is the real reason why we got unCapable Vista first instead of Windows 7. Disgusting.

What is ahead in computing?

Lets first look back.

Introduction date: June 1979
Clock speeds: 5 MHz (0.33 MIPS)
8 MHz (0.75 MIPS)
Internal architecture: 16 bits
External bus width: 8 bits
Number of transistors: 29,000 (3 microns)
Typical use: Standard microprocessor for all IBM PCs and PC clones
Identical to 8086 except for its 8 bit external bus

3 Microns is some 50 times broader line than current production ruling 65nm. Fifty times narrower of 65nm is 1,3nm. Thus, in the next 30 years our most advanced today's microprocessors will resemble in performance as we remember now ubiquitous 8088, the first PC microprocessor. Paradoxically, microprocessor from 2039 should run at at 8Mhz, deja vue in 8088 microprocessors.

Provided that PC architecture is practically dead. And that the new king that will rule in the next 30 year should be born just now.
Thus, king is dead, long live the King.

Literally: Hacking is Freedom

The indictment also says that Janosko managed to obtain a username and password for accessing an "important" prison management application and that he attempted to log into the program -- but without succeeding before he was caught.

BADHARDWARE: Well, I doubt. Why should someone be caught the second time, if he had been already caught and in jail? QUite opposite, seems he freed himself hacking that important management program and that is why he was later arrested by FBI for the second time.

Mr. Hardware Debacle: Guess whose President I am ?

Intel bad, AMD good

He said the company hopes for 2009 sales growth of 4 percent to 5 percent in units, assuming global Gross Domestic Product of 1.8 percent.

A Wall Street analyst who asked not to be identified said AMD was overly optimistic and that many of his colleagues believe PC growth will range from one to two percent growth to a small shrinkage of sales.

Finally, a truth on bad hardware

Friday's violent scene erupted just before 4 p.m. when police say Wu arrived at SiPort, a small semiconductor firm at 3255-7 Scott Blvd., and began shooting. Wu apparently had been laid off either Thursday or Friday morning, Santa (Satan?) Clara police Lt. Mike Sellers said.

Sid Agrawal, 56, of Fremont, who was the company's co-founder and chief executive. Ambitious with an entrepreneurial spirit, Agrawal worked at Adobe Systems, Intel and Bell Labs, and he started a handful of companies on his own — some more successful than others, in fields from networking to data storage and semiconductors.

Capable Vista stinks, because Intel is rotten

Just as BADHARDWARE first predicted. About that time AMD had needed capable 64bit hardware, Intel however had not.
So, Intel and Microsoft simply deceived Vista consumers. Now, you can suit them, all of you.
Now ,Microsoft is giving up on Vista. I wonder why?

Ancient Rome Virtually Reborn on Google Earth


Intel sales drops 19%, what about its market share ?

AMD Shanghai should side kick it , isn't it? Anyway, the drop has been the largest since 2001. By canceling that update and offering this one, Intel is saying things are so obviously grim there’s no point in sitting on the news to be sure things won’t improve.

33 percent of voters got most of their 2008 campaign news from the Internet

A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found 33 percent got most of their 2008 campaign news from the Internet, compared with 10 percent in 2004.

Sun announces RAIDless storage

Sun Microsystems' new storage appliances can be used either in a small IT system or, using a larger form factor, in a large data center. Code-named Amber Road, the rack-mounted 7000 line comes in 2TB, 44TB and 288TB options. All use the open-source ZFS file system and the DTrace system analysis tool and can be up and running in about 5 minutes, Sun claims.

Benchmarks: Windows 7 is Vista's make up.

"InfoWorld's Randall Kennedy examines Windows 7 from the kernel up, subjecting the 'pre-beta' to a battery of benchmarks to find any signs that the OS will be faster, more responsive, and less resource-intensive than the bloated Vista, as Microsoft suggests. Identical thread counts at the kernel level suggest to Kennedy that Windows 7 is a 'minor point-type of release, as opposed to a major update or rewrite.'

By the way, Windows 1.0 announced 25 years ago. Do you have seen anything radical new about Windows since then?

$2000B collaterals: Hedge funds explosion !#

In the past eight years, investment in hedge funds soared from $500 billion in 2000 to nearly $2,000 billion today, according to Hedge Fund Research (HFR). The smaller rise in the previous decade - from $38 billion (1990) to $500 billion (2000) - gives a guide to just how rapid the recent expansion has been.

The number of funds also grew exponentially. The last HFR report put the total at 10,000. Some of these traded in stocks and bonds, others were in currencies and arbitrage, but they all shared one common goal: to make money - or at least not lose money - when markets fall.

LATEST: $700B fed financial package secretly enlarged to$2000B.

Two months later, as the Fed lends far more than that in separate rescue programs that didn't require approval by Congress, Americans have no idea where their money is going or what securities the banks are pledging in return.

The Fed made the loans under terms of 11 programs, eight of them created in the past 15 months, in the midst of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression.

BECAUSE, YOU VOTED for it. TWICE in a row.

NetLogic preps 100G Ethernet PHY chip

Everyone interested.
NetLogic Microsystems Inc. is angling to become the first company to sample a physical layer chip for the upcoming 40/100 Gbit Ethernet standard.
The company plans to see first silicon in December for an all CMOS device that consumes about 500 milliwatts per channel.
The NetLogic PHY will fit in a 19x19mm package. It supports several configurations ranging from ten channels of 10 Gbit/s data to 25 channels of 4 Gbit/s traffic.

Obama Positioned to Rollback Bush Actions

Transition advisers to President-elect Barack Obama have compiled a list of about 200 Bush administration actions and executive orders that could be swiftly undone to reverse White House policies on climate change, stem cell research, reproductive rights and other issues, according to congressional Democrats, campaign aides and experts working with the transition team.

BADHARDWARE: Rollback in computing is quick reverse of some last actions previosuly have been done over database. The most desirable Obama rollback action would be however if possible, on Bush's astronomical budget deficit contribution.

AMD & Red Hat Demo Live Migration Across Vendor Platforms


Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors with Rapid Virtualization Indexing (RVI) enhance the benefits of a CCE by offering performance advantages for demanding workloads like web serving. A key feature in AMD-V technology, RVI accelerates virtual-to-physical address translation functionality by performing these functions in hardware, which results in faster switching times between virtual machines. The complexity of memory management in virtualized environments is reduced when the extra layer of address translations introduced by virtualization is handled in hardware rather than software resources. RVI helps reduce Hypervisor cycles and the associated performance penalty that is commonly associated with virtualization.

Barack Obama expected to be first US "Tech President"

Silicon Valley on Wednesday was looking forward to Barack Obama becoming a "tech president" that will champion Internet freedom and innovation.

Now he seems is starting with changes.

700 headlines expect that too.

He is important man, isn't he?

Man stole secrets from Intel worth $1B !

When the FBI searched Pani’s house on July 1, agents allegedly found eight documents described by Intel as “confidential,” “secret” or “top secret.”
The information Pani allegedly downloaded was worth $1 billion in research and development costs, according to the government.

Ok, lets check those confidential, secret or top secret from Intel Folsom.

X64 architecture? Stolen from AMD
Nehalem architecture? Copy exactly of AMD's Barcelona.
Atom? Venerated licenceless X86.
45nm manufacturing secret ? AMD abandoned manufacturing.

And the FBI charge is than the man intended to sell those "secrets" to AMD.

BWAHAHAHAHHAHA. See below, while miss Intel is in passionate love (again !) with distinguished hardware review site macho, some tiny, rootless thief (business relations connected with Arabs?) sucks their top secret liquor behind their back. Disgusting. FBI should jail this man by decades, or life time.
