After antirust lawsuit rumors Intel shares fell 30 cents


Notebook Turn Out To Be Notebook Paper In Black Binders

A Clarksville woman thought she was getting a good deal on some laptops. Little did she know, she was getting binders packaged in bubble wrap.
Wednesday, a couple approached the woman outside a store on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard in Clarksville. The man had what appeared to be four Fedex boxes with laptops in them.

Easy way to reach Moon

We chose to go to Moon, not because it is easy, but on hard way.
Aurora mission makes detour to Moon
I wonder if NASA actually  "landed" at Moon this way ? When far part of Earth satellite orbit pass Lagrange point, Moon will  attract it. Obviously. No need for big booster  rockets. Only little Moon gravity assistance.

Earth like planet found out of Solar system ?

Kepler has found about 140 "Earth-like" candidates smaller than two times the radius of the Earth among 306 stars searched. One Earth like planet at 2 stars? Earths everywhere in Space ?

FBI says Slovenian mastermind of botnet nabbed

The alleged mastermind is a 23-year-old Slovenian whose Internet nickname is Iserdo.
Slovenian police have confirmed that they have detained a computer hacker believed responsible for creating the virus that infected 12 million computers worldwide.

Slovenian is forced to work in the future for NSA, against the aggressive Chinese and Russian hackers.
50 of the world’s Fortune 100 companies are actively participating in this botnet as well as hundreds of government agencies, financial institutions, universities and corporate networks worldwide.
With over 200 variants, some of the Mariposa malware is currently detected and some is not. Coordination with antivirus companies is ongoing to ensure that their signatures are updated. 

Room temperature superconductivity ?

We already know perovskite structures for giant magnetoresistance and excellent dielectric constants.
We know too that superconducting like effect is  measurable on the same crystalline structures. But, superconducting at room temperature at 313K? Sorry, not likely.
It is only resistance side effect of colossal  magneto resistance of perovskite like crystalline structures used.
And not at room temperature, but at order of 150K . Here, in micro amperes.

Canon developing smaller DSLRs to compete with mirrorless cameras?

It's not a question of whether or not you will have a mirror.
MIRRORLESS APS-H with crop factor of 1.25 ?

Its 300 mm telephoto gives 50mm's  equivalent of 375mm.

Nanotechnology Delivers Revolutionary Pumpless Water Cooling

BAD HARDWARE: Great for future GPGPUs

Future of storage advancements: Limit is close !

God's particle is close. Well, almost.

Researchers from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) project near Geneva said in just three months of experiments they had already detected all the particles at the heart of our current understanding of physics, the Standard Model.

The neutralino is the lightest supersymmetric particle. It cannot decay to anything lighter, and so is bound to live forever. It is electrically neutral, so light cannot see it; it is not made of coloured stuff, so ordinary matter hardly stops it; and it is just expected to have the right mass to make the matter balance of our Universe compatible with its evolution after the big bang.

Slovenians investigated for computer virus

"More than 13 million computers all over the world have been infected, including those of 750 US companies and at least 40 banks," the report said.

Prema pisanju slovenačkih medija, mariborski hakeri u saradnji sa španskom kompanijom "Mariposa" širili su virus širom svijeta. Sumnja se da su mladići sarađivali s španskom organizacijom kako bi ilegalnim putem zaradili veliku svotu novca.

Inače, ta je kompanija još prošle godine osumnjičena za "mutna" poslovanja od strane kanadskog bezbjednosnog poduzeća "Defence Intelligence", španskog proizvođača antivirusnih programa "Panda Security", te centra "Georgia Tech Information Security".

Intel, FTC Said to Be Close to Final Accord on Antitrust Suit

The two sides have been negotiating since last month to meet a self-imposed July 22 deadline to reach a settlement. If successful, the talks would end a suit the FTC filed in December against Santa Clara, California-based Intel.
The settlement with Advanced Micro, based in Sunnyvale, California, cost Intel $1.25 billion. That followed a record EU fine of 1.06 billion euros ($1.45 billion at the time).

NASA successfully landed 6 times on Moon even without vibration tests !

The $150-million facility was built to contain the next-generation manned spacecraft for the Constellation program, NASA's project to send humans back to the moon. It is the largest acoustic test chamber in the world, created to buffet the spacecraft with intense sound waves, simulating the stresses of launch.

Silicon speed tweaking, up to 20 times !

We know this is possible in practice, though to some extent  (35%) with a layer of germanium above silicon, but lead sounds much ... faster.
Strained silicon. Now, imagine processors clocks of 40 - 60GHz. That would be a silicon Renaissance.
Actually, 60 Ghz wireless technology is already with us. Connect 30 Ghz processors using 60 Ghz wireless band tehnology.  Copy?

OR,  End of processor golden age predicted

AMD up $370M

Total company revenues were $1.65 billion, up 80 million from Q1 and up $370 million from the same time last year.

One problem fix releases the next problem.

Intel boosts Q3 outlook after ‘best ever’ Q2

Crisis over?
6.6 billion for R&D is a huge number! That should serve them well in keeping there monopoly on the market.

This rumor is 99,7% correct

Large Hadron Collider rival Tevatron 'has found Higgs boson', say rumors.
Thus, why it is called a rumor? Seems that remaining 0,3% evidences against the finding are still pretty convincing. :)

God plays dice: Gravity doesn't exist in a way Einstein imagined it !

Finally, a truth on gravity.

Thus, determinism is not so attractive driving scientific engine any more.Ironically, Einstein actually was looking for radically new idea after breakthrough with relative time in his special relativity. However, he never played with irreversibility of time . Because, his Unified theory would be that way probabilistic. That means literally, quite contrary to his basic belief, that God plays dice.

What to say in the end? Truth is stranger than illusion, but never as strange as lies. Thus, our hopes for perfection are only just that, hopes dear Mr. Einstein.

Microsoft may not survive post-PC era

SAN FRANCISCO – If I had to place a bet, I'd say Intel will survive the post-PC era pretty much intact, but I am not so sure about Microsoft. That's what I am thinking as I head to a mobile technology conference in San Francisco.

Perfect Citizen: U.S. Plans Perfect Cyber Shield for Utilities, Companies

US should prepare for many more heatwaves

Heat waves like the one now roasting the Eastern Seaboard are likely to become commonplace over the next 30 years, say scientists at Stanford University - even if global temperatures rise by only one degree Celcius.
UK too. By the 2080s, it is predicted that an event similar to that experienced in England in 2003 will happen every year.

Researcher cracks 'secret' code in U.S. Cyber Command logo in a minutes

The (O)mission. 
US CYBERCOM plans, coordinates, integrates, synchronizes, and conducts activities to: direct the operations and defense of specified Department of Defense information networks and; prepare to, and when directed, conduct full-spectrum military cyberspace operations in order to enable actions in all domains, ensure freedom of action in cyberspace for the U.S. and its allies, and deny the same to adversaries. 

It took him just a few minutes to figure out that the characters -- 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a -- were the hash value for Cybercom's above (O)mission statement.

BAD HARDWARE:  OMG, how secure we are now ! However, state's cyber security image would be much better if the future Cyber command challenge applicants were restricted to kindergartens only.

666: Mark of the Beast in Japan

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17

Japanese consumers are estimated to carry some 120 million cashless payment chips.

BAD HARDWARE: Just as many as cashless Japan has inhabitants. When you are required by law to get the mark of the beast and when you can’t buy or sell without it how will you live?
Does the Bible reveal the answers to these questions? Could 2008 really be the beginning of the end? In short, yes!
According to the Payments Council, a trade body representing the banks in the UK, card and cash machine industry, this proportion will fall to below 50 per cent by 2015. 
Times Online reports that currency in circulation now  is about 16% of GDP in Japan.
