Thu, 20 Mar 2008 22:59:17 +0000

There's a lot of money to be made in the HDMI cabling and switch aftermarket and unfortunately that means a lot of consumers are getting tricked in to paying outrageous prices.  I've spent quite a bit of time helping my friends set up their home theaters recently and I thought I'd share that knowledge with my readers.

Fri, 14 Mar 2008 05:45:40 +0000

HyperTransport 3 which was once slated for AMD's Barcelona server processors seem to be delayed again on Shanghai until some time in 2009 when it finally arrives for the "Montreal" quad- and octal-core CPUs.  According to page 21 of Mario Rivas' slides, the roadmap clearly indicates AMD's first 45nm processor Shanghai won't get the newer inter-processor interconnect and it will instead use the older HyperTransport 1 interconnects.

Fri, 07 Mar 2008 00:57:35 +0000

Wed, 05 Mar 2008 08:14:03 +0000

Mon, 03 Mar 2008 04:17:55 +0000

I appeared before congressional and government staffers on Capitol Hill for a panel on Network Management sponsored by iGrowthGlobal.  This was my first time in Washington DC and while it was a little cold for my Californian bones, it was a beautiful city and seeing the capitol of the nation was certainly a worthwhile experience.

Thu, 28 Feb 2008 02:21:19 +0000

At the Heroes Happens {here} event in LA yesterday which saw the launch* of Windows Server 2008, one of the relatively hidden gems of the event in my opinion was Microsoft's free** Search Server 2008 Express.  It's is a streamline install of Office SharePoint Server 2007 with almost all the enterprise search features that most users would want and is a must download for any Windows Server shop.

Sun, 24 Feb 2008 01:41:11 +0000

It appears that the rumors about Intel's next major microprocessor "Nehalem" being a huge juggernaut may be true according to leaked documents from Sun Microsystems (removed Sunday night).  The slides appear to be inadvertently placed on Sun's publicly accessible website and "jokerman" posted the link on Aceshardware (thanks to tip from ZDNet reader JumpingJack).
