iOS 5 Beta 4 Gets Jailbroken

The much awaited release of iOS 5 is now over, at least for iOS developers. A few hours back Apple released the beta 4 version of the much awaited iOS 5 to developers.

But guess what? Just a few hours after the release of this operating system, the hacker community has found a way to jailbreak this OS. Marvelous and very fast indeed.

Wifi With 45 Miles Of Range, Pure Bliss

It feels really bad when you are having an important conversation on Skype and you go to check whose at the door and eventually your call terminates because you have walked out of your WiFi range.

Hopefully this won’t happen anymore because engineers at On-Ramp Wireless have succeeded in engineering a transmitter capable of transmitting WIFI signals up to 45 Miles.

ARM Processors Aiming To Dominate Notebook Industry?

In the news is the ARM processor technology which has already taken over the smartphone and tablet industry and is now preparing to dominate the personal computing market. According to a market analyst IHS isuppli, in 2015, the ARM processor would be present in 20 percent of the shipped notebooks.

ARM processors require low power, cost less and are high performing pieces of tech which will take benefit of Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system to power notebooks; as its the first ever operating system to support ARM processor on notebooks.

U.S. Invests In Smart Grid Tech + Security

According to eWeek, The United States government has recently came forth with a series of initiatives to implement information technology to the national power grid to make it “smarter”, more efficient, and secure. The council of National Science Technology outlined plans to create a smart grid innovation hub, in a report released yesterday called “Building the 21st Century Grid.”

The innovation hub will be composed of federal researchers, companies, and utility executives and will support research, development, and deployments of smart grid technology.

IBM HPC Cloud Solutions For Maximizing Profits

IBM seeks to help companies use their high-performance computers more efficiently with new software that links separate pools of resources into a single private cloud. Usually, organizations with intense engineering operations have separate server farms used by individual groups of engineers, leaving computing resources unused.

With this in mind, IBM is currently making HPC Management Suite for Cloud software available after having just used it internally. Over 3,000 engineers around the world shared resources as they developed the POWER7 processor family, claiming to have cut costs in half and reduced the design cycle by six months as a result of the software.

Sharp’s New Digital Signage 60″ Uses 50% Less Power

Sharp’s new Digital Signage 60″ LCD rocks the company’s latest line of performance products while maximizing power efficiency. The new screens were designed to be used independently or in addition to other, identical PN-V602 devices.

The new screen comes with an improved LED Backlight panel that supplies the aforementioned 50% power consumption reduction compared to the previous model and is 2.1x brighter than other Sharp panels, rocking a luminosity rating of 1500cd/m2.

VIA Rolls Out Two New Chips

VIA Technologies make computer chips for power efficient x86 processor platforms. The company announced on Friday that it will be rolling out a new line of low power dual core VIA Nano X2 Series processors at the ESC (Embedded System Conference) in San Jose.

The E-series processors are extremely power efficient and feature dual-core architecture, specifically designed for 86-bit and x86 embedded system applications. The models to be released will be a 1.2GHz and a 1.6GHz chip and both processors come with a seven year warranty.

Living The Future: Lasers Replace Spark Plugs

A team at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics will announce on May 1st, 2011 that they have designed lasers that can ignite fuel/air mixture in combustion engines. With this approach, the engine’s efficiency will increase dramatically, thereby reducing pollution by igniting more of the mixture. The team is currently in talks with the spark plug manufacturer. Spark plugs currently work by igniting the fuel mixture near the spark gap which reduces the combustion efficiency. The spark plug’s metal is also prone to erode through time.

Intel– No Longer Producing Itanium Chips

Itanium-based servers are commonly used by IT professionals in the industry. Intel’s latest Itanium 9300 series packs a punch, delivering double the performance that you would get with the previous generation. It also handles six times more memory bandwidth and up to nine times more interconnect bandwidth. To continue, the Itanium can carry eight times more memory than the older version. It is designed for information specialists to have energy-efficient technology at their fingertips, and serves are the driving force for their data centers and workload management.

According to Electronista, Oracle has announced that it will no longer…
