The Web at 25 in the U.S.

53% of Americans say Internet would be 'very hard' to give up
According to Pew, 35% of U.S. adults said their TVs would be very hard to give up, down from 44% who had the same view in 2006.
Americans, though, are much more attached to the Internet and their digital devices. Pew noted that 39% said they "absolutely need" to have Internet access. Among those who said it would be difficult to give up net access, 61% said being online is essential for their jobs or other aspects of their lives, and 30% said they want the Internet because they simply enjoy being online.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Today smartphone has color display 1920x1080 , double greater resolution than this cube wonder 1120×832 17" grayscale. WhatsUpp we can expect in the Next 25 years ?

Smile — you're on camera: Yahoo webcam images have ended in NSA !

 A webcam (web camera) allows you to share live video images of yourself (or things near you) while you are instant messaging with a friend. Unfortunately, with Big Brother too.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Even worse, a lot of people used it for sexually explicit shoots :)

1990: ARM was born in barn

The number of bugs in a chip is relatively proportional to the number of transistors - Bob Colwell, former Intel chief architect

Russsia finally openned it , but only at closing !

 Thus time without any hardware.

Why people are better servants than the robots, and always will be.

“A lot of people ask me, you know, do I miss much about being president,” Bush said. “The answer’s really no. I mean I miss the people I served with. I miss Air Force One. In eight years, they never lost my baggage.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Trust me ! Had I ever had Snowden and Assange cases? They are simply the consequence  of my patriotic license to kill revoke.

Yet another hit from the future: HAL maintainance module is called ALIS


In Space Odyssey 2010 Kubrick and Clarke envisioned start year 2006, and HAL that command the mission towards the Jupiter. Strikingly, we have VR mission on Earth staring in 2006 , the ship number is  F35 , and its operation module is called Allice, small module that David Bowman can change to recover the mission, and the mission driving force HAL  is a container room full of rack monoliths ! The F-35 and her sophisticated helmet is run by a computer named “ALIS.” ALIS integrates a broad range of capabilities including operations, maintenance, prognostics, supply chain, customer support services, training and technical data. A single, secure information environment provides users with up-to-date information on any of these areas using web-enabled applications on a distributed network.
Seems software remains the program’s number 1 risk, with an even larger number of lines of code around the aircraft – about 12 million – than within it (about 9 million, though a Product Support Manager later tells us that the total has grown towards 26 million lines of code).
Reuters reports that ALIS is at 94% of final capability, but a changing computing landscape has bitten it. A Navy “Red Team” hacked into the ALIS system. ALIS reportedly includes both classified and unclassified data streams, and the 2001 specifications didn’t require separating them to prevent intrusions. Lt. Gen Christopher Bogdan, the military officer in charge of the F-35 program, added, "Long gone is the time when we're going to pay for mistake after mistake after mistake."

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Kubrick had seen it in 1964,  50 years ago ! COMPUTER VR SIMULATION is used instead , and you don't need 9 years waiting to arrive at Jupiter in 2015 !

HAAAAL, please let me in !

World's largest solar plant scorching birds in Nevada desert

 Who says that only solar is environment friendly ?
The $2.2 billion complex of three generating units, owned by NRG Energy Inc., Google Inc. and BrightSource Energy, can produce nearly 400 megawatts — enough power for 140,000 homes. It began making electricity last year.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Poor Flappy birds

Win 9 together with 14nm Intel in 1Q 2015

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Win 7 patches end on Jan 14th  2015. Intel and Microsoft , don't screw the schedule ! OR face the consequences.

Chernobyl 2? Watching the world’s aging power plants

Chernobyl 2? Watching the world’s aging power plants
There were 435 nuclear power plants online worldwide as of New Year’s Eve, 2011
As of Dec. 31, 2011, 114 were planned, and an additional 65 reactors were under construction.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: 600 Nukes total in a few years. A lot of bad hardware.
One day later: Alarm it has happened !

14nm Broadwell's mass shipments will be postponed to the 1Q 2015

Intel's upcoming 14nm Broadwell-based processors were previously scheduled for mass production at the end of the first quarter for release in the third; however, sources from the upstream supply chain say the processors have recently been delayed and will not be available until the fourth quarter.
Broadwell's mass shipments will also be postponed to the first quarter of 2015. The sources believe the delay is partly due to the
 weak demand for Haswell processor inventories .
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: AFTER 10 years Intel's tick tack  winning strategy is dead. How and will Intel win ARM in smartphone market without tick tack strategy advantages remains to be seen.

Olympic circles refuse to open, China Jade rabbit refuses to wake up

Fifth circle should be closed Russian homophobic one, I assume.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: That is why we still exists :)

Afghan Taliban capture British military dog

 Could it reveal them some military secrets under torture, I am afraid ? Coalition forces have long used protection dogs in Afghanistan, mostly German shepherds, Labradors or spaniels.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: In that case  IBM and PARC to design sensitive electronics for military that shatter to dust on command

No airborn stealth without visible protection ?!?

If we don’t keep F-22 Raptor viable, the F-35 fleet will be irrelevant” Air Combat Command says
To be precise all of 1,763 (“not one less”) F-35s

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: TO be honest, I have been always doubtful. :) Oh yeah, why ?
Because you have to see your powerful enemy to be scared to death. Hehehehehe.
The F-35C takes 43 seconds longer than an F-16 to accelerate from Mach 0.8 to Mach 1.2.
The F-35B and F-35C use almost all of their internal fuel before being able to achieve their maximum speed of Mach 1.6.

All your base are belong to U.S.: Firefox and Chrome browsers now cipher and deliver upon request all your online passwords to NSA !!

 User names and passwords now stored on Mozilla's servers.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Of course, NSA could rake them even before passwords reach Mozilla servers !. Much easier then ever. Why? Because they are all now at the same place, very well known to NSA. What should aware web surfers do? Hmm, try MAxton. Then your online passwords should be delivered to China Big Brother home. And what about IE browser security?

According to HP's 2013 Cyber Risk Report, more researchers tried to sell IE vulnerabilities than any other product vulnerability.
Not as good as it used to be since 2001:)

Drill baby, drill

 Religious leaders pray for snow in West
Why? Well global warming manifest itself in simultaneous weather extremes like droughts and icy storms. Bush administration didn't admit science but God's will, now the same should resolve the problem upon request by stricken religious leaders :)
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Republican presidential candidate had a motto : Drill baby drill to make more global warming and thus more JOBS FOR RELIGIOUS LEADERS. :)
