Internet routing blasts into space

Cisco space router onboard Intelsat satellite to test orbital IP network

To route IP voice, video and data traffic between satellites in space in much the same way packets are moved on the ground. A radiation-proof Cisco router was sent into space today aboard an Intelsat satellite with the goal to set up military communications from space. Now, if Earth is destroyed by nukes, space military networks will be the last survivor. To strike back, even no one survived. Doomsday.

Avatar: Teriminator and Titanic director third movie hit in 3D ?

Pace thought Cameron would launch right into Avatar. Instead, the director took his new camera 2.3 miles under the sea to film the wreck of the Titanic in 3-D. The way Cameron tells it, he wasn’t done having “manly adventures.”
Cameron wasn’t just goofing off. He wanted to make Avatar, and he wanted to do it in digital 3-D. Unfortunately, theater chains were not adopting the technology. It would cost approximately $100,000 per theater, and exhibitors had to be convinced it would pay off. They needed some high-profile 3-D films that could generate enough revenue to justify the conversion.
Perhaps Sony's try in 3D games will be more successful ?

* The wheezing, 1970s-vintage computer system that prints paychecks for the entire state workforce is held together by software patches and jury-rigged connections and is in danger of failing, according to officials in the state controller's office. A $130-million overhaul called the 21st Century Project was supposed to have been activated two years ago, but instead state officials have been locked in a lawsuit with the contractor and say it will now cost 39% more.

In addition, the systems use the COBOL software language, developed in the 1950s, in which a dwindling number of state-employed programmers are fluent.

Finally, a safe way for our World destruction

Drones delivered by missiles. For the last few years, the U.S. military has been working on technologies and procedures that would allow them to conduct “prompt global strikes” — hits on targets anywhere in the world, in less than an hour. But Congress strongly objected the primary striker, a modified version of the Trident nuclear missile, because it would look and fly too much like an atomic attacker.

BAD HARDWARE: Fast and efficient way for surveillance.
Alas, fast and efficent way for WWW III begin too, because no one is sure what is use of your missiles delivered towards nuclear weapon defended countries.

Gordon, Flash based supercomputer

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has been awarded a five-year, $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to build and operate a powerful supercomputer dedicated to solving critical science and societal problems now overwhelmed by the avalanche of data generated by the digital devices of our era.

A key feature of Gordon will be 32 “supernodes” based on an Intel system utilizing the newest processors available in 2011, and combining several state-of-the-art technological innovations through novel virtual shared-memory software provided by Scale MP, Inc. Each supernode consists of 32 compute nodes, capable of 240 gigaflops/node ( one gigaflop or GF equals a billion calculations per second ) and 64 gigabytes ( GB ) of DRAM. A supernode also incorporates 2 I/O nodes, each with 4 TB of flash memory. When tied together by virtual shared memory, each of the system’s 32 supernodes has the potential of 7.7 TF of compute power and 10 TB of memory ( 2 TB of DRAM and 8 TB of flash memory ).

Intel and AMD will settle out of court soon !

Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool Creates and Makes Bootable DVD Disc or USB Flash/Hard Drive from ISO Image

Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, and supports localized language versions of Windows 7.
This tool is important especially on computers (e.g. netbooks) that does not have a DVD drive. Furthermore, install operating system from USB hard drive or flash stick is also faster comparing to old-fashioned DVD.

Road to Exascale Computers

Because a 10x increase in performance means the machine will consume double the power, to make future supercomputers feasible to build and to operate optics will need to be more widely used he said. In 2008 a 1-petaflop computer cost $150 million to build and consumes 2.5 MW of power. Using the same technology, by 2020 a 1 exaflop machine would cost $500 million to build and consume 20 MW of power.

Man accused of infecting 4000 Government Fannie Mae's servers hired by tech company

Finally, a truth on bad intentions.

Fannie Mae is formed by US Government during Great Depression. The current one?
No, this one.
Together with The FHLMC created in 1970, they owned or guaranteed about half of the U.S.'s $12 trillion mortgage market. On September 7, 2008, the U.S. Government took control of both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It is estimated that the liabilities of both companies could cost U.S. taxpayers tens of billions of dollars.

Bad Hardware: $12 trillion market is controlled entirely by US Government? Add recent Health Insurance Bill, and you will get more state control than in Commie China ! What a comedy with a healhty sense of reason.

How Israel Destroyed Syria's Al Kibar Nuclear Reactor Using Trojan Horse

In late 2006, Israeli military intelligence decided to ask the British for their opinion. But almost at the same time as the delegation from Tel Aviv was arriving in London, a senior Syrian government official checked into a hotel in the exclusive London neighborhood of Kensington. He was under Mossad surveillance and turned out to be incredibly careless, leaving his computer in his hotel room when he went out. Israeli agents took the opportunity to install a so-called "Trojan horse" program, which can be used to secretly steal data, onto the Syrian's laptop.
