In early 2002 Intel became the first chip manufacturer to release a processor incorporating a new technology known as Simultaneous Multithreading, or SMT. Intel's SMT implementation (dubbed Hyper-Threading or HT) has been available in their Xeon processor line for over a year, with little fanfare. In April 2003, Intel announced that HT technology will be added to its desktop-focused Pentium 4 line of processors. With HT enabled on one of these new systems, the BIOS will present a single processor to the operating system as two logical processors. As Java developers, we should all be excited about this new feature of Intel processors. The java.lang.Thread object was one of the key factors driving Java to the strong position it enjoys in the server-side applications market. Both client and server applications written in Java often make heavy use of threads. Indeed ev... (more)

Monetizing Wi-Fi Starts Here

WBT's Wi-Fi editor reports on a recent conference that was devoted to examining the value, profit prospects, and real-world obstacles inherent in deploying and maintaining wireless public Internet access networks ­ commonly called "hotspots." In light of the estimate that there will be over 10,000 public wireless access points by the end of 2002, Ron profiles the players in the hotspot market today, and explains some of the flavors of the 802.11 standard that's fueling the growth of Wi-Fi. My mind often defies logic. My wife will attest to that. I'm more likely to dream about the desired result than the work required to get there. The first time I looked at a Web browser I immediately wanted to download audio and video files. I didn't think about the infrastructure challenges, the privacy/security problems, and the slow access speeds that would need to be overcome ... (more)

Wireless Gambling Is Born: "SMS-TV" Wireless Technology Set to Play Major Role

SMS-TV technology is about to explode globally. Precisely because it is relatively unregulated. Unlike land line telephone service, most cell phone services, and dial-up Internet, cable television's cables and satellite transmissions are not regulated by such US government laws as the 1961 Wire Act. While gambling and obscenity are regulated by the federal government over telecom technologies, they are unable to restrict cable TV, or more importantly, interactive TV. Sit on your couch, point your cell phone at your TV screen, and text-message your placement of a $10 casino chip on the roulette wheel's number 24, You've just placed a real bet, and can watch the spin of the wheel, and the results in real time. Fans of FOX-TV's American Idol have been enjoying SMS-TV technology every time they have text messaged their votes. Publicly traded Zone4play is about to offer T... (more)

I've been having more fun than a person should have over the past few months with Web 2.0, and you’re going to get a kick out of what I've been doing. Especially since it involves the impending death of a beloved Web mascot. First I must confess that I'm a slime-sucking weasel. No, not the kind you meet in your lawyer's office. The kind that invents things and protects them with IP law. Some of the material I'm going to cover I have protected. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I thought about being a better person and giving away everything I have, but I lost my last billion do... (more)

Web Hosting, Data Centres, Technology and Cosmetic Surgery

As the sun rises in the East and bears visit the woods, we can state with absolute certainty that we will be blitzed with a plethora of “best of”, ”worst of” and “pick of” lists, and of course ‘what’s hot what’s not for 2010” predictions, in the next couple of weeks. And this year it will be worse. Not only do we say goodbye to 2009 but we also move up into a new decade. Copy writers have even greater license to fill a few column inches with those trivial facts that we feign a healthy disinterest in but secretly devour, storing the data to impress our friends and colleagues at some later date. And when the opportunity does arrive to finally impart our new found knowledge, Oh Boy! do we like revelling in our own self importance. We have the sudden urge to give it the old Billy Big Bananas treatment. We’re not content with simply stating that Will Young’s ‘Evergreen’... (more)

This Year’s CES Show at Las Vegas, So What’s New and Who’s Interested?

CES 2010 on Ulitzer The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year was grandiose and overwhelming as always. As my colleague Jeff Shelmire and I represented ChannelVission Inc to scope out the latest in tech madness, we were assaulted by a sensory overload of 3-D screen enablers, perceptive sensors, gaming devices for a lazier and racier audience and phones that promise to be smarter than ever before. Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp and all the big names were loving it as they have been looking for just this kind of  interest surge to get back into the game after last year’s abysmal retail push. Tablet sized touch screen net books and niche e-readers were in abundance as trend dictates smaller, sleeker and more mobile. Since everyone is crazy about downloading apps for everything from bird watching to clock ticking (OK, I made this one up but I’m sure it exists som... (more)
