Farewell, CTIA; Now, it's (Windows 7) party time

Here I sit, on the floor near my gate at the San Diego International Airport (because the 1960s-style of this terminal still forces business travelers to scrounge for electricity anywhere they can find it) heading back to Silicon Valley after a couple of days at the CTIA Wireless I.T.

Memristor - everything changes

At least two or three times a week, we get a press release about some fundamental breakthrough in nanotechnology, silicon engineering, wireless or similar.Normally, the story is rather less exciting than the PR would have us think: after a good twenty years of exciting fundamental breakthroughs in nanotech, and we've got accelerometers in our iPhones, mirrorchips in our projectors, and...

Graphene-based transistors on the way?

The idea of replacing silicon with carbon to make computer chips is not new. However, using graphene -- a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice -- wasn't feasible because it is not possible today to make wafers as big as ones made from silicon. But two researchers from Princeton University have found a very elegant solution to this problem. They've decided to put small crystals of graphene only in the active areas of the computer chip. Their graphene-based transistors are already '10 times faster than silicon transistors in moving electronic holes -- a key measure of speed.' This technique could be applied to wireless communication devices within a few years.

Build Silicon Valley-wide Wi-Fi? What, are you nuts?

On Friday, seven bidders offered proposals to built a WiFi network that would cover 1,500 square miles of Silicon Valley from the cities of South San Francisco on the Peninsula and Fremont in the East Bay all the way down to Santa Cruz.The proposals would be for the Wireless Silicon Valley Project, which has the noble goal of free or inexpensive Wi-Fi Internet access througout the SV.
