Logitech Aims To Control the Smart Home

T-Bone_142 Re:Never underestimate a bored teenager (115 comments)

More and more of the new appliances these day (especially air conditioners) are able to be remotely controlled / throttled by the utility to prevent overloads. By the time these new smart systems become deployed on a large scale i expect most appliances will have this ability.

Smell the Roses Already: 4 OSs that Should Be Open

T-Bone_142 T-Bone_142 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

T-Bone_142 (917711) writes "More often than not, the question arises on OSNews why certain projects or pieces of abandonware aren't released as open source software. Supposedly, this would speed up development, facilitate the growth of a community, all that jazz associated with open source development. Here are four projects I'd like to see released under a MIT license."

T-Bone_142 (917711) writes "Today scientists from IBM, Macronix and Qimonda unveiled a new type of memory with the intention of possibly being a replacement for flash memory which is used in many electronic gadgets today.

The new memory announced today is called "phase-change" memory. The memory would have the same applications as flash memory, but with a a couple key advantages. First of all, the phase-change memory has shown to be faster than flash memory; up to 500 times faster. It would also only consume about half the power that flash memory does, even with the greater speed. Secondly, the phase-change memory is smaller. A cross section of the new memory prototype measures only 3 x 20 nanometers."
