THUNDERBOLT WITHOUT A MAC

Well I guess you don’t need to buy a mac anymore cause Intel went on the record Wednesday saying that its silicon will support USB 3.0 in 2012 and urged developers to target both USB and its new “Thunderbolt” technology. “Intel is going to support USB 3.0 in the 2012 client platform. We’re going to support Thunderbolt capability. We believe they’re complementary,” said Kirk Skaugen, a vice president at the Intel Architecture Group, speaking at Intel’s developer conference in Beijing Wednesday. The event was streamed over the Web.   Only select laptops, such as the Dell Precision M6500, support USB 3.0 today using non-Intel silicon. The “2012 client platform” that Skaugen referred to is known more commonly by the code name “Ivy Bridge,” which is the family of chips that will follow the “Sandy Bridge” processors shipping in PCs today. USB is one of the most widely used connection technologies in the world, found on everything from PCs to tablets to smartphones. Intel laid the groundwork for widespread adoption in spring 2002 when it put the technology in its silicon. When Intel includes USB 3.0–which is about 10 times faster than current USB technology–in Ivy Bridge silicon in 2012 that will mark 10 years since the chipmaker upgraded its chips to the newest USB tech. Today, Intel has support for USB 3.0 only in select desktop motherboards. And those boards don’t use...

What! No More Internet?

Everything that has internet has a IP basically “IP”means Internet Protocol address but when the precursor to the Internet was developed at UCLA in 1969, little did they know that we would all someday be connected by this thing many times over And that’s a problem. In 1976, when the U.S. Department of Defense came up with an outer limit for the number of such internet connections that would ever be needed, it settled on the far-out figure of 4.3 billion — almost enough to provide one IP address for every man, woman and child on the planet. Well, as you can guess it’s not enough in 2011. Earlier this month the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) doled out its last old-school internet protocol addresses. Don’t worry though, your next smart phone won’t be off the grid. ICANN and a number of computer and internet giants (Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Comcast) have been preparing for this day for years and say they’re ready to roll out a whole new address system soon. In fact, the transition to the new address system (“Internet Protocol 6?) is happening now, and a test of the new set-up is set for June 8. Unfortunately, it could get complicated. Young people, be prepared to head over to your parents’ houses that day and do the usual re-booting and reconfiguring. ICANN Chairman...
