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

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
Compaq to Halt NT on Alpha Development
Compaq Computer Corp. this week laid off roughly 100 engineers responsible for developing Windows NT/2000 on the Alpha platform, several informed sources said.

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
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
Intuit Pay Gives UK SMBs Easy Card Payment Functionality
Back in November 2012, Intuit launched an Intuit Pay pilot project for the United Kingdom. The company has since learned a lot, improved the product, and

The solution offers the following advantages over other payment solutions: Accept cards anywhere —on the go and over the phone: One can use the card reader with Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch for mobile payments or enter card details online using the secure Intuit Pay site to take payments from home or office over the phone. Safe and secure —protected by a chip and PIN reader: This feature ensures faster payment, helps Read More
Customer Relationship Malpractice
Although malpractice is usually a term used in medicine, its definition (“any instance of improper professional conduct”) shows that the term can be used in any

They sent me the new card and blocked the old one without letting me know why. Also, I wasn’t notified that I was going to receive a new card. As you can imagine, I did not receive the new one and was not able to use the old one either. So I did what any logical person would do: I called the bank. Unfortunately, they didn’t know what happened to the new card. They ask Read More

An approach to communicate/integrate (Secure Socket Layer) establishes a secure connection between the two systems by sending and receiving packets with keys that authenticate and validate the server, as well as the client. This method is the standard modus operandi for many pervasive approaches. So, some analysis (standard pro Read More

Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe: Software Selection, Its Pitfalls, and How to Avoid Them
The process of selecting software can be streamlined by paying close attention to the types and quantities of criteria you use. Better decision processes will

chip laptops  between Gatepost and Poker Chip Criteria In general, there are two broad types of criteria to consider: gateposts and poker chips. Gateposts are non-negotiable criteria. They must be met, or the alternative is abandoned. For example, in one recent selection process, the budget needed to be less than $190,000 (CAD). The organization didn't really care what the cost was, so long as it was below that gatepost level. Other examples of gatepost criteria include the ability to track lots (used in the food and Read More

Compaq Streamlines Product Line
Compaq is simplifying its sometimes dizzying range of product offerings in its business desktop lines. This bodes well for their customers.

The DeskPro line includes nearly 70 models spread across its DeskPro EN and EP lines, according to the Compaq Web site. By streamlining, some analysts believe Compaq could cut costs and better compete with business-market rivals such as Dell Computer Corp. (NASDAQ:DELL), Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HWP) and IBM Corp. (NYSE:IBM). Under the prodding of CEO Steve Jobs, Read More

HP Joins the Athlon Pile-On
Hewlett-Packard announced that it will begin shipping PCs which use the Advanced Micro Devices-produced Athlon CPU.

chip laptops  increased shipments will reduce chip cost, and it will probably respond in kind to any Intel price cut. Users who have already planned to use (or at least consider) systems containing the Athlon CPU should be encouraged by this. It should give them enough psychological security (regarding AMD's viability) to allow them to proceed with Athlon purchases that may have been on hold. This news will not affect those users totally committed to Intel, unless they decide the time is right to consider alternative Read More
