MediaGoblin:: GNU MediaGoblin Mirror: The Coming War: ARM versus x86 » Van's Hardware Journal Note: This report was originally published at Bright Side of News* on April 8, 2010. After their server crashed, BSN* has not yet been able to recover the article after several weeks. We are reposting the report here to serve as a mirror of the original article. There are likely to be minor editing differences with the BSN* article. Note 2: Only a month or two after it was published, a detailed report that I wrote was wiped out during a BrightSideOfNews* hard drive crash. It took a little while and cost BSN* a lot of money to recover the data on the hard drive, but that report is now back up and can be read here. I’m currently working on a followup to that bit of analysis that will include even more hardware than the initial report. The computing landscape is changing rapidly and the war between x86 and ARM microprocessors is now underway. Introduction In this report we will discuss the emerging competition between ARM and x86 microprocessors. The Coming War: ARM versus x86 We thank C.J.

'I will implicate Sonia Gandhi in the 2G case' When asked what nailed Raja, Dr Swami says, "That press conference of January 10, 2008 when Raja allotted spectrum on first come, first serve basis. That was his unbecoming. If he had done it with little bit finesse he would have got away with it. It was so crude. He gave one hour for the companies to get demand drafts for Rs 1,650 crore. He gave advance information to those whom he wanted to give spectrum. Swamy claims that his case saw legal success because the Supreme Court could not ignore two things. "One, why the prime minister did not reply my letter. While ending the interview, he said, "Raja was assured by the Congress and the DMK that he will be protected. Then, giving a mischievous look, he said, "You can't ask Sonia Gandhi any question on Raja because she would never give that interview."

Crash course on OSE Overview for New People Start with our Main OSE Website. To see what we do, see the GVCS in 2 Minutes video. Open Source Ecology was founded in 2004 by Marcin Jakubowski. We have an ambitious program for product release of the 49 remaining technologies within 2 years and a 2.4M dollars budget - which we abbreviate as our 50/2/2 program. Key Features of the GVCS These are the Key Features of the GVCS, and if you want to see the full set of values, see Core Values of OSE. Scope of the GVCS Current Status last updated: February 1, 2012.

Electrilite [edit] Introduction Bernie Macdonald of Albion, California, developed the Electrilite personal transport vehicle. Here is a proposition for flexible fabrication of the critical components, the high-torque, low speed electric pancake hub motor and its respective motor controller. The natural spinoff of this enabling technology is three adaptations of the Electrilite: Pedal power assist electric vehicle, as in the prototype hereWaste vegetable oil powered, Babington burner, flash steam hybrid electric vehicle Open source babington burner technology available, including flash steam generation and another digest hereElectrilite hub motor is uses as an electrical generator Wheel motors power the car, and performance specification is a street vehicle Multi fuel capacity: gasoline, diesel, elcohol, waste oils, compressed gas, or others Hybrid electric tractor, with either battery or hybrid steam power 4 wheel drive [edit] Business Model [edit] Fabrication Capacity [edit] Hub Motor Specifications:

The H: Security news and Open source developments How a DNS server/Service evolued to resolve host names to IP and vise versa Surendra Anne Servers No Comments BIND , DNS , FQDN , Hosts (file) , Top-level domain How DNS server evolved? To understand why we require DNS server we have to go back to initial stages of networking the computers around late 1960’s and early 1970’s where it all started in Universities(especially ). Initially there is single computer for university due to cost and other factors, then to multiple systems per university. Hosts File evolution(/etc/hosts or c:/windows/system32/etc/HOSTS): To make it easy to communicate with different systems they came up with hosts file concept. So if I say one lab is having 10 machines each machine should have 10 entries for these servers as show below. Hosts file content: So becomes easy to remember by users. Disadvantages of hosts file? One disadvantage from this hosts file is if we want to add 11th machine in the lab all the hosts files on each system to should be modified to add this host details. What’s the solution? Disadvantages of initial DNS server?

Notebook Processors The Intel Core 2 Duo class of processors is the successor to the Core Duo with longer pipelines, 64 Bit support, a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU). Because of these improvements, the Core 2 Duo CPUs should be 5-20% faster than a similarly clocked Core Duo. As the name suggests, the Core 2 Duo lineup consists of CPUs with 2 cores. Depending on the mode, the CPU features 2, 3, 4 or 6 MB Level 2 Cache (2 and 4 for Merom CPUs, 3 and 6 for Penryn). Every model features eX Bit (Execute Disable Bit) technology, SSSE3 (SSE4), and Enhanced Speedstep support. The mobile Core 2 Duo is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors, but with reduced core voltage (e.g., 0.95 V vs. 1.188 V) and slower FSB to save power. The Core 2 Duo lineup was presented in July 2006 with the Merom core and was produced in 65nm for the Socket P and Socket M. In 2008, Penryn and the Penryn refresh cores were introduced in 45nm. X ...
