Linux Laptops from Dell
Dell now has begun selling two models of its laptops with Linux preinstalled.

chip laptops  will with its recent chip supply problems, and Dell would be justified in cultivating a backup CPU source (a/k/a Advanced Micro Devices). However, Michael Dell has made it quite clear that he has no plans to change from Intel. This is in contrast to Dell's willingness to load Linux (i.e., the anti-Windows ) wherever it thinks it reasonable. We realize the situations are not exactly the same, but the parallels for the two dominant players in their respective fields cannot be ignored. User Recommendations Read More

Identix Leads Biometric Authentication
Perhaps the most exciting product released at last Comdex, was the Identix DFR-300 Fingerprint Scanner. Implemented in Compaq, Dell, and Toshiba laptops, the

For Identix to succeed with itrust , the company will need commitments from certificate companies willing to participate in itrust rollout and support. The certificate partners will need to have the appropriate infrastructure to deliver a strong PKI component that extends across varying country requirements. Vendor Recommendations With minimal marketing and advertising, Identix has not only made significant in-roads into the authentication and biometric Read More
Transmeta to Intel/AMD: Eat Our Dust
Transmeta’s CEO says his company has a five-year lead on Intel’s and AMD’s technology. Reality or hype? And does it matter?

chip laptops  may take a new chip design for the big guys (AMD/Intel) to emulate Transmeta's architectural philosophy (off-loading hardware functionality onto software), we think the development time would be closer to three years (maybe less), not five years. In the computer biz, five years is approximately equal to forever . On the plus side for Transmeta: we do not see them repeating the mistakes made when the Alpha chip was first produced. Digital Equipment, which had hoped to make Alpha a serious challenger to Read More
Compaq to Halt NT on Alpha Development

PC Encryption: Eyes Wide Open
While the virtues of encrypting PC data are extolled by vendors and the press alike, some painful truths go largely unmentioned. Whether necessary for

chip laptops  line include Intel’s vPro chip that will include hardware-based encryption processing. This alternative provides speedy encryption/decryption, addressing previous performance problems. Future developments suggest that enhancements to the chip’s functionality will be added by integrators/computer manufacturers of the chip. The vPro chip also provides a very interesting capability; the ability to actually power the computer up unattended and remotely – while the data remains encrypted. Imagine the Read More
Intel Tries to Give it Away - AMD Says
Intel Corp. has disclosed a problem involving its 820 and 840 chip sets that has spurred the company to scrap plans for three motherboards it had on its server

chip laptops  its 820 and 840 chip sets that has spurred the company to scrap plans for three motherboards it had on its server road map. But while an Intel representative stressed that the problem would likely affect only a few users, some analysts said the trouble may indicate a flaw in a crucial component used to configure the boards with SDRAM. The trouble arose when Intel's 820 and 840 chip sets, which were designed to take advantage of speedier Rambus memory, RDRAM, were configured to work with SDRAM. According Read More

SmallSmartFast Organizations
At ChainLink we have talked a lot about the advent of SmallSmartFast technologies—ever-smaller and ever-smarter devices and software that is fast to implement

chip laptops  never-ending, dramatic improvements to chip performance. The smaller the elements of the chip get, the faster, cheaper (per unit of performance) and the less power (per unit of performance) they consume. It turns out that there are many advantages to small teams as well (see sidebar Small's Competitive Edge ). As a former software engineer, I noticed that a small team of 3-4 engineers was sometimes more productive (produced more working, quality code that met the end customers' needs) than a large team o Read More

chip laptops  (or Allen) in MobileLand There are a few things in life that every generation values—family, a sense of security, justice—and owning a cell phone. In fact, that sense of security that we all value ties directly into our cell phone ownership. Don't think so? Tell me, how you would feel if you lost your cell phone? I rest my case. The cell phone is no longer just a phone, however. It is now a mobile device that not only makes phone calls or sends and receives text messages from your family or your Read More

Computer security for the small to medium business (SMB) must address similar concerns. Can a hacker gain access to its servers? How can a business protect its data?

Compaq Wins Supercomputer Contract, But Is It Enough?
Compaq recently was awarded a contract for the world’s largest supercomputer, which will use its Alpha processors. But what’s happening with their standard high

chip laptops  Background note: The Alpha chip and architecture was designed by Digital Equipment Corporation, which was acquired by Compaq in 1998. Market Impact Winning a high-profile contract such as the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a nice trophy, and demonstrates the Alpha chip's power for high-end applications. However, contracts for 2700-processor machines are not going to get awarded every day, so Compaq must concentrate on its regular channels to get the revenues needed. Compaq announced its AlphaServer Read More
Transenterprises - The Emerging Business Model of the Twenty First Century

However, as chips move to smaller and smaller geometries (with individual elements only a few atoms across) it has been forcing all the players in the chain to integrate their design, production, and test efforts much more tightly. They are being forced by physics to make significant investments and commitments Read More

RFID Workbench: Understanding the Basics
Radio frequency identification (RFID) helps actualize the perfect integration of logistical and commercial chains and its use is rising in the US and Europe

chip laptops  RFID transponder is the chip (integrated circuit). The chip has a memory section that stores the identification code or other data. The content of the memory is sent to the reader when the chip is activated. The quantity of data storable on the chip depends on the type of the circuit. Most chips can comprise between 64 bits and 2 kilobytes of data. The transponder's antenna enables the communication between the chip and the reader. The packaging protects the transponder and is designed to make it Read More
