The Speed of Light inside the Box 0

The Speed of Light inside the Box

Intel has announced a chip which uses the transmission of light to move data between devices at a cost competitive with existing components found inside of gadgets. This effectively brings fiber-optics to the level of being used within and between consumer devices, as contrasted with its current infrastructure use. Intel has already been working on a fiber-optic patch cable for connecting home gadgets at 20 times current speeds; this new development will potentially increase current speeds by fifty times. The Silicon Valley dot com website (part of the San Jose Mercury-News) describes it as follows: But the chip it unveiled Tuesday, which sends data via four lasers, can hit 50 gigabits per second. And that’s just the beginning, according to (Intel CTO Justin) Rattner. By adding a few more lasers, the company expects to be able to boost that to perhaps 1,000 gigabits, he said. At that rate,...

“Battery Died” 0

“Battery Died”

David Pogue discusses manufacturer’s claims of the longevity of laptop batteries in the New York Times. The post is here. It’s worth a read. He discusses how the “tests” of laptop battery life are in no way connected to how persons use laptops. A sample: Another problem: Unlike CIPA’s camera tests, the MobileMark test protocol doesn’t reflect real-world use. Consider, for example, the screen. It’s the most power-hungry component of a laptop, so specifying how bright it is during your test is extremely important. Well, the MobileMark test specifies that you have the screen set to 60 nits (a brightness measurement). Not to nitpick, but at full brightness, the screens on modern laptops put out 250 to 300 nits. Read the whole thing to see the extent of the disconnect between how you and I use our laptops and how manufacturers “test” battery life.
