If time isn't hurtling fast enough toward the holidays, not to worry.

The release next week of the Xbox 360 is promising all the anticipation and competitive shopping any enthusiastic consumer could ask for -- before the turkey even hits the table. The next craze in gaming could be in lines at retail stores three days before Black Friday.

With less than a week to go, the frenzy is here.

Microsoft is anticipating the biggest game launch

The InfiniBand interconnect standard, first specified in 2000, is catching on in supercomputing as evidenced by several related announcements at this week’s Supercomputing 2005 trade show in Seattle. SGI unveiled Monday what it said is the industry’s first native server-to-storage InfiniBand solution while Isilon Systems said its clustered storage technology has been partnered with Cisco Systems’ products to bring more than 2,500 InfiniBand switches to the marketplace.

And a semiconductor company, KeyEye, said its single-chip InfiniBand transceiver supports full duplex connections for

Backing up critical data is so crucial that companies that don’t do it regularly probably won’t be in business for very long. Companies that do perform regular backups can either do it in time-consuming, roundabout ways or use a backup device that makes the job as easy as possible.

With its unique color touch-screen interface, Spectra Logic’s Spectra T50 Tape Library is easy to use, manage and maintain. In addition, the rack-mountable 4U tape library offers either two LTO-3 full-height drives or

Virtual Compute Corporation has agreed to use more than 1 million hours of central processing units on Sun Microsystems' Grid Compute Utility.
Sun announced the development earlier this week, saying it's the company's largest grid compute utility deal yet. VCC is using the grid to serve customers in the oil and gas industry. The company will gain access to thousands of CPUs through the Sun Grid, which is based on Sun Fire V20z servers and powered by AMD Opteron processor-based systems. Read More...

Suppliers are working hard to bring high-speed interconnection technologies from supercomputing sites to the more mundane realm of corporate data centers. And if consumers aren't ready for the migration -- and it seems quite a few are not -- they'll have to find ways to fight off a major pitchfest.
The Supercomputing 2005 conference next week in Seattle, for instance, will be the venue for a flurry of announcements about interconnecting data center systems and storage. A key aim will be

Earnings declined in part because of the cost of replacing defective PCs, but the company sees plenty of opportunity for growth in storage, printers, and software and periperhals.

Growth opportunities for Dell remain strong despite an earnings setback in the third quarter, due in part to charges related to replacing faulty desktop PCs, according to Kevin Rollins, Dell president and CEO.

Specifically Rollins pointed to Dell's storage, printer, and software and peripherals businesses where the company holds single-digit market

Battery makers are rushing to try to improve their wares, with much of their research centered on improving the old standby--the lithium ion battery.

For most of us, a dead battery in our cell phone or digital camera is an annoyance. For surgical tools salesman Jason Paul, it can cost him big money.

Paul counts on his smartphone--a cell phone that can perform computing chores--to check his stocks and send e-mail. He logs more than 3,000 minutes a

After several false starts, the widespread replacement of aging film-based movie projection systems with cutting edge digital cinema setups is moving forward.

A big stumbling block toward deployment was removed when specs by the Digital Cinema Initiative were completed this summer.

Now, Access Integrated Technologies Inc. and Christie Digital Systems USA Inc. tell TechWeb they're on target to install 150 digital cinema projection systems by Dec. 31. Over the long haul, the two plan to install 4,000 digital screens nationwide.

The microcontroller is moving rapidly into 16- and 32-bit universes, according to an In-Stat report released Wednesday.

The market research firm said the shift is being driven primarily by newer robust products including smart cards, PC peripherals, and hard disk drives. In-Stat predicted that by 2009, 16- and 32-bit controllers will account for twice the revenue of 8-bit controllers

"Properly designed, higher bit-width microcontrollers will require less power consumed per workload executed than their counterparts in the 8-bit category," said

Researchers at Wake Forest University's Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials claimed that they have made strides in improving the efficiency of organic or flexible solar cells.
Traditional silicon solar panels are heavy and bulky. They convert about 20 percent of the light that hits them to useful electrical power.

Researchers have worked to create flexible or organic solar cells that can be wrapped around surfaces or even painted onto structures. But the best scientists have been able to do
