Google Chrome's Remoting feature shows up in Chromium with enterprise implications

We've known about Google Chrome's "Chromoting" feature for some time. Many blogs reported it as a way to "run Windows apps on Chrome OS," which is, of course, a bit of a stretch. Now relabeled "Remoting," the feature is probably closer to running an application via Terminal Services or by first connecting to a host machine by using RDP or VNC. Any way you look at it, Remoting is a very key com...

Successful quantum calculation uses single iodine molecule to smash computational speed record

Stop the press! Don't click that 'buy now' button! Your Intel i7 980 is weak! Picoseconds -- pah! Today, thanks to some crafty Japanese quantum scientists, we can now talk about computation on the level of femtoseconds. That's thousands of times faster than current computer chips. The science is way over my head, and the Popular Science article is pretty heavy going, but basically: current com...

5 computing resolutions to make for the new year!

The new year is here, and it's time to make some resolutions! I've got plenty of habits that need some reworking, so here's what I've resolved to do in 2010: Back up my important files regularly. I've always sucked at doing this, and it's time to change that. With so many good online options (like Mozy, Backblaze, and Carbonite) and external hard drives being so cheap, there's really no excu...

Buy a piece of home computing history

Who will buy Atari's marketing memories? Maybe you, if you're flush with cash and nostalgia. The fabled Sotheby's auction house is set to sell off a group of Atari marketing materials from the golden age of console gaming, an era which familiarized the average consumer with the concept of interactive play with a big pile of transistors and bits of code. The collection dates fromt he period betw...

The history of the personal computer in TV commercials

When the computer takes a big step forward, I always like to take a look back. We can argue all day over whether Microsoft Windows Vista (win your copy from Download Squad here!) is revolutionary, evolutionary or just marketing hype. With around half a billion Dollars being spent on Vista's marketing launch I'd personally lean towards the latter of the three but, it does make me think... What abo...

10 biggest computer flops of all time

Ah, the flop. The tech industry has had more than its share, and it's never pretty. Miguel Carrasco has collected 10 of the biggest flops in computing history, a list which includes four OSes and six machines. A lot of the computers on the list are considered ahead of their time and still have big followings, like the Apple Newton and Steve Jobs' NeXT cube. I have a big soft spot for #3 on the lis...

Google has very loyal followers

In a recent study, Google was found to have some of the most loyal followers according to recent studies. The studies looked at online services, computing, and consumer services divisions of the IT world. The surveys measured the importance in customer's eyes, and which overall services you would recommend. Apple and Symantec were also ranked high on the Satmetrix survey....
