Apple, once again, has secured another injunction against an Android manufacturer. This time, a repeat performance from Motorola, and specifically a 'slide-to-unlock' patent.
If you had to decide which of two employees to keep, wouldn't you want to hang onto the one that many people in your firm depend upon? But how would you know who they are? Read on for a great tool for this and other business value.
Motorola dished out financial results this week, and admitted that it had only shipped (not sold) 440,000 XOOMs in Q2. That poor performance was in large part due to a terrible launch.
Researchers in Japan have come up with a new transistor manufacturing technique that they claim will squeeze the best performance enhancements out of carbon nanotubes, without losing the on/off ratio of a good semiconductor.The Nagoya University researchers say they have demonstrated flexible integrated circuits that "are capable of sequential logic" - a first for a transistor made from carbon nanotubes.

Dual-core devices like the LG Optimius 2X and the Motorola Xoom will dominate this year's performance segment of the market. Just make sure you ratchet your performance expectations properly.
It has been a long and bumpy road for Fermi, but with the GeForce GTX 580, which was announced today, Nvidia seems to be delivering on the promise of its new GPU architecture. Based on a new GF110 GPU, the GTX 580 has been "re-engineered from the transistor-level up" to increase performance and reduce power consumption.
Turns out there a really good reason that our posts about more efficient lighting technology tend to get more traffic than the norm here at GreenTech Pastures: Facilities managers polled as part of the latest Energy Efficiency Indicator point to lighting as not only their top energy-efficiency measure, but also the green technology that has the best price-performance ratio.
Verizon has begun rolling out an over the air update for the Motorola Droid Sholes, but early adopters say that the Android 2.1 update is causing noticeable performance problems for some applications. In one case, frame rates dropped from a smooth 60 frames per second down to 30.
The toughest performance reviews are the ones for the most troubling of employees. How do you capture their ineptitude, indifference or incompetence in a pithy, to-the-point phrase? Read on...
How long does it take to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7? Last weekend, several leading tech websites zeroed in on one alarming snippet of data that a Microsoft tester published on his Technet blog: With the right combination of hardware and data, a Vista-to-7 upgrade can take more than 20 hours. That data point leaves plenty of room for snark and trepidation. But does it actually represent performance that you’re likely to encounter in the real world? I've got the real story.
Owners of the latest MacBook models are still complaining about erratic WiFi performance and drop-offs. While the postings in the discussion boards keep piling up without resolution, some point to new solutions.
Just a day before the official start of PMA 2009, electronics giant Samsung has announced its new NX Series, a new family of hybrid digital cameras that offer the performance and image quality of a dSLR and the portability and convenience of a compact point-and-shoot.Like conventional digital SLRs, the NX Series utilizes an APS-C sized image sensor, providing a much larger surface area to gather light and produce higher-quality images.
Enterprises looking to deploy a rugged, versatile mobile device will be impressed by the Motorola MC75's range of features. However, you pay a premium for smartphone functionality in a hardened form; this phone is not only tough, it is massive to the point of being unwieldy.
Skype announced today that they have created a new position, Chief Operating Officer, and hired someone from Motorola for that position. Considering the performance of Motorola in the cell phone market recently, it seems to me like it should be a good fit.
If you ask the likes of Motorola and Sony Ericsson the answer is yes, of course. Both phone makers have recently announced camera phones with (relatively) high-resolution cameras that may be capable of replacing your point-and-shoot digital camera.
In previous installments of this series, I discussed the virtues of a clean Vista install, some useful User Account Control workarounds, top tools for troubleshooting, and the wisdom of shutting off Windows system services. Today’s fifth and final installment is a little different from its predecessors. It focuses not so much on fixing what might be broken, but rather on taking advantage of a feature in Windows Vista that has the potential to transform the way you work. Through the years, I’ve tried just about every third-party desktop search utility for Windows. But I threw them all away after a few weeks of using Vista’s built-in Windows Search capability. In this post, I’ll explain how Windows Search works, how to monitor the SearchIndexer service to avoid potential performance problems, and how to speed up indexing operations on the fly. I'll also point you to an update that every Windows Vista user should install right now.
Intel's first two billion transistor processor, details of which appeared yesterday, is quite the beast. Tukwila is four cores of 2GHz Itanium embedded in 30 megabytes of on-chip cache, together with Intel's next-generation memory controller/cross-point interconnect - which, as any supercomputer designer will tell you, is as important as the details of the rest of the logic.
SAP provided another data point on the health of the tech economy, outlining that its fourth quarter performance is on track.
It is a commonplace that science fiction not only predicts the future (although it doesn't), it helps design it (ah, firmer ground here). The canonical example for techies is the Motorola StarTAC flip phone, which was entirely dependent on Kirk's communicator for its aesthetic: students of architecture and industrial design in general can point to any number of other examples.
