Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) say they have developed a "new class of electronic components" that could lead the way to bendable and battery-less electronic devices inside the human body - which could monitor blood flow, organ activity and other vital signs.
Eindhoven (The Netherlands) - John Kessels from the technical university of Eindhoven claims that a relatively simple software update as well as the addition of a cable could reduce the fuel consumption of virtually any car on the road today.
Kessels approach is based on the idea that cars waste energy in several places; for example, he explained that cars do not accelerate efficiently and throw potential energy savings when charging the car battery or running all electrical systems without interruption.

Flash memory has been rumored to soon hit the limitations of nature, making it impossible for the technology to scale beyond 32 nm or 22 nm structures. Korean researchers now say they have developed 10 nm semiconductors based on carbon nanotubes that could breathe new life into Flash memory cards.
Sunnyvale (CA) – AMD has released its proposed motherboard design guidelines for DTX small form factor (SFF) PCs. The company said that the specifications should enable “smaller, quieter, desktop-friendly” computer systems.
As a company with one of the world’s largest IT infrastructures, Google has an opportunity to do more than just search the Internet. From time to time, the company publishes the results of internal research. The most recent project one is sure to spark interest in exploring how and under what circumstances hard drives work – or not.
The Internet continues its rapid pace of growth. Netcraft reports that 1.93 million sites came online during the month of January, bringing the grand total to 108.8 million.
By now, we have learned that power efficiency has become one of the dominant cost factors impacting the operating of computer systems. A new study, commissioned by AMD, is putting numbers on the power consumption of data centers in the U.S. and around the world.
San Francisco (CA) – IBM today revealed first data about a new embedded DRAM device, which the company claims achieves record access times. The technology is expected to debut in 2008 as part of the 45 nm generation of IBM processors.
AMD is preparing the rollout of its first quad-core processor, an Opteron processor based on the Barcelona core. Meanwhile, Intel is developing an answer to Barcelona: The company is lining up 45 nm server and desktop processors and will revive Hyperthreading in 2008 with the Nehalem core.

Sideshow is one of those Windows Vista features that are still somewhat cloudy and without a clear future. So far, Sideshow has gained most interest in the form of a small LCD that is integrated into the notebook lid as a secondary screen - to enable data access without requiring the user to power up the notebook. But there is more - and Nvidia is cooking up some interesting solutions.
AMD's processor prices remain under severe pressure: Caught between Intel's outgoing Pentium D series on the low end and the Core 2 Duo series on the high end, the X2 Athlons remain vulnerable to market shifts and Intel's supply strategy. Anyone intending to build a Vista PC on a budget should begin having a closer look at AMD.
