Intel's philosophical impasse - it's deep

Intel has decided to finally call it quits with the One Laptop Per Child non-profit project, due to (in their own words), a "philosophical impasse." It sounds deep and profound, doesn't it? Seems all along Intel was deeply committed to providing children low cost laptops in developing countries even though when OLPC was first launched it mocked the program and forecast its demise. Since those...

Mac Hack: Install Leopard on a PC

Once upon a time trying to install OS X on a PC was like trying to squeeze blood from a turnip. The operating system just wasn't designed to run on Intel processors. But now that Apple is releasing Intel-based Macs, you can install Windows on a Mac, and with a little bit of hard work and license-breaking, you can install OS X 10.5 on a PC with an Intel processor. Don't expect everything to work...

CoolSW: Digg for software

Intel has launched a new website called CoolSW that's basically a Digg-clone focused on software and tech companies. Users can submit links to "cool software" or companies, and other users can vote on whether they like the applications or businesses. Why exactly is Intel creating a social ranking system for software? The company has a vested interest in finding the next big thing in technology...

Intel pushing low-power Linux development for laptops

Everyone wants a blazing fast PC. But if you've got a laptop, you also want long battery life. Oh yeah, and if you care about the environment or your home electric bills, you might want your desktop to suck electricity from the power grid a little slower too. PC power consumption comes from a combination of hardware and software. Intel, AMD, and other chip makers have been trying to reduce power...

Making Mashups easier with Intel's MashMaker

Intel is getting ready to debut a closed beta this month of their new mashup tool accessible to non programmers. The new MashMaker was spotted at the SIGMOD conference in June in a presentation that was prepared by Intel and Yahoo Research. The gist of it was the creation of a tool that made it easy to create mashups from many different sources. Intel's MashMaker will be a web based tool that...

Make free SkypeOut calls to mom on Mother's day

Want to call your mom on Mother's day, but you've spent so much money on your blazing fast computer and high-speed internet connection that you can't afford the long distance bill? Skype and Intel want to help. Intel is sponsoring a day of free "global calling" over Skype. By global, they mean you can place the call from anywhere in the world, but you have to make your SkyeOut call to a phone...

Intel spills the beans on Vista service pack release date

With Windows Vista barely out the door, Microsoft's been quiet about when the company will issue its first major update for the operating system. But someone forgot to send the memo to Intel CEO Paul Otellini, who made some comments regarding Vista Service Pace 1 during a financial presentation this week. Responding to a question about how enterprise users have been slow to adopt Vista, Otellini...

Microsoft testing Office 2008 on Macs

Mac users seem to always get it last, and this upcoming version of Office 2008 is no exception. The team at Microsoft has been testing the next version of Office for Mac which is scheduled to be out in the middle of this year, and luckily adds some features that Apple fans have been missing out on. Office 2008 has been finally released in a private beta test version for Mac users to test on Intel...

HD Photo support for Photoshop

Whats next for Microsoft? Well, at least one of its eyes is focused on the HD Photo format, once called Windows Media Photo. This is reportedly a better alternative to the standard JPEG format, and of course, it's built into Windows Vista. The new format features multiple color formats for display or print, high dynamic range image encoding, lossless compression, and efficient decoding for...

Optimized Firefox 2.0.0.1 for G5 and Intel Macs

After you unwrap your new Mac this holiday (or maybe found a great Boxing Day deal) be sure to install the very latest version of BonEcho, the G5 and Intel optimized version of Firefox. The new builds also include: an overhauled version of the aqua form widgets the user agent has been changed so that the browser will identify itself as Firefox rather than BonEcho To help Neil (the...

VMware Fusion arrives for Mac OS X as public beta

For those of you who have been holding out on Parallels, or haven't yet tried Boot Camp, VMware has decided to give you your Christmas gift a few days early and release the public beta of VMware Fusion. "What is this Fusion you speak of?" I hear you asking. It's VMware's foray into the Mac virtualization market, allowing you to run Windows, Linux, and likely most other x86 based OSes, along side...

Nvidia to build x86 processors, take on Intel, AMD?

The Inquirer says it has "confirmed" that 3D graphics giant Nvidia is hard at work building its own x86 processor with integrated graphics to compete with the offerings of Intel and AMD. Both Intel and AMD--which acquried ATI back in July--have been busy strapping integrated graphics on their own chips, it seems logical that Nvidia would want to play, too. Their efforts would be bolstered by its...

Does anyone care about Viiv?

While the question that usually occupies my mind is "Does anyone care about Blu-Ray/HD-DVD?" our sister blog PVR Wire raises another salient query: "Does anyone care about Intel's Viiv?" Like PVR Wire's JJ Hawkins, I've got to wonder if Intel's marketing, which tries to paint it as the only way to build a real multimedia PC, is really getting through to anyone, and if there's anything to it. "This...

Intel's laser-based processor

In the next 5-10 years by all estimates we should have a processor capable of 1Tbps throughput, at least according to Intel. The optical networking chip Intel is working on uses laser light as the medium for performing computations, instead of the traditional transistor-based chips. Light represents data, which is processed instead of molecules or electrical signals. I guess you could say that...
