Facebook To Develop Standalone Apps

Imagine using a separate Facebook app just for sharing status updates with your closest friends, or maybe co-workers. In the near future, such an app could very well exist. Facebook, as part of plans to divvy up its service, is looking to develop a range of new standalone apps to let people connect with others and share content, perhaps in new ways beyond how they do already. That, in a nutshell, is what CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent a fair amount of time discussing during the company’s fourth-quarter...

Cisco Claims New Wi-Fi Standards Being Stalled

Old Wi-Fi standards are now holding back the newer, faster protocols that followed in their wake, Cisco Systems claims. IEEE 802.11, now available in numerous versions with speeds up to 6.9Gbps and growing, still requires devices and access points to be compatible with technologies that date to the late 1990s. But Cisco said that these older standards are not nearly as efficient. It is calling on the 802.11 Working Group and the Wi-Fi Alliance to find a way to let some wireless gear leave those versions...

Alien Life Could Use Many Types Of Building Blocks?

Only 20 standard amino acids are used to build proteins, but why exactly nature “chose” these particular amino acids is still a mystery. One step toward solving this is to explore the “amino acid space,” the set of possible or hypothetical amino acids that might have been used instead. New research has used computer models to construct a large database of plausible amino acids, revealing thousands of amino acid. Building blocks All organisms on Earth employ the same workforce...

Symantec’s Revenue A Victim Of Sluggish PC Sales

Did Mars Support Alien Life Millions Of Years Ago?

Mars may have once been capable of supporting microbial life for hundreds of millions of years in the distant past, new findings from a long-lived Red Planet rover suggest. NASA’s Opportunity rover, which celebrates 10 years of Mars exploration on Friday (Jan. 24), has uncovered evidence that benign, nearly neutral-pH water flowed on the Red Planet around 4 billion years ago. These results, reported today (Jan. 23) in the journal Science, complement the recent work of NASA’s bigger,...

The Z3775, Z3775E and Z3775D should end up somewhat faster than the currently available Z3770 and they will go after $200+ segment. The chips are expected to ship sometime...

Why Did AMD Delay Mantle For Battlefield?

AMD revealed Mantle to the world at its Hawaii launch event and at the time it promised support for the new API would come to Battlefield 4 sometime in December. In December, AMD said the API would show up in January. Now though, it appears that the delay may be somewhat longer. Late yesterday Extremetech reported BF4 support would finally land in February. AMD’s Robert Hallock denied the patch is coming in February, but he didn’t say it is coming in January, either. If it is, it’s...

Researchers Develop Powerful Batteries That Operate Off Sugar

Researchers at Virginia Tech have created a battery that operates off of sugar and could one day replace traditional batteries with ones that are cheaper, refillable and biodegradable. Other batteries that are powered by sugar have been developed before but scientists say this one has an unmatched energy density, which enables it to run far longer before needing to be refilled. These new sugar-based batteries could run smartphones, tablets and video games in three years, according to Y.H. Percival...
