Google Acknowledges Lack Of Diversity, Pledges Changes In Workforce

Google Inc  shared the gender and ethnic makeup of its 50,000-strong workforce on Wednesday, disclosing a significantly below-average proportion of minorities and women employees that it said was “miles from where we want to be.” Google’s disclosure of its workforce demographics represented a rare move for a U.S. company, even if the figures came as no surprise to those familiar with Silicon Valley, an industry long scrutinized for its lack of diversity. Blacks and Hispanics made...

Will China Become The Home Of Linux?

However the Chinese are so miffed with US spying that they are seriously considering imposing it. Chinese Government news agency Xinhua published an article claiming Chinese vendors are using a ban on Windows 8 to push Linux-based...

Has The Smoking Gun For Cosmic Inflation Been Discovered?

For decades, theorists have speculated that in its earliest moments, our universe underwent a mind-bogglingly fast expansion that took it from the diminutive size of a proton to a vast expanse. Earlier this year, scientists announced a stunning development: what may be the first “smoking gun” evidence in support of that theory. How certain is this result and, if it’s corroborated, what does it mean for our theories of how the universe works? Three leading theorists spoke recently...

Trade Commission Urges Feds To Regulate Data Brokers

Firms known as data brokers collect and sell information about “nearly all” U.S. consumers, making potentially harmful conclusions about people largely without their knowledge, U.S. regulators said on Tuesday. The Federal Trade Commission urged Congress to pass legislation that would enable consumers to learn more easily how data brokers collect, use and sell their data, to correct it or to opt out of the process, especially when it comes to sensitive information such as about their health...

Can A Firmware Upgrade Triple SSD Speed?

SSD drives could be about to get a lot faster, thanks to firmware. A Japanese team led by Ken Takeuchi, professor at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Communication Engineering at Chuo University, has found a way to triple the speed of a standard SSD by removing the bottlenecks in its architecture. By swapping the existing middleware of the device with its own, the team was able to achieve staggeringly quick results by letting the drive do what SSD owners are told never to do themselves. SSDs...

Are Solar Sails Plausible?

Several upcoming missions aim to harness the subtle push of sunlight, using gossamer “solar sails” to cruise through the heavens like boats through the sea. Such propellant-free propulsion could take craft cheaply and efficiently to a variety of destinations, from locations in near-Earth space to the edge of the solar system and beyond, advocates say. A spacecraft equipped with a sail 1,300 feet (400 meters) wide, for example, could travel 1.3 billion miles (2.1 billion kilometers) per...
