nVidia Shows Off Iray Server

Nvidia has just spilt the beans on its Iray Server which is a clever bit of kit which allows distributed networks to pool resources create high-performance renders. The software manages machines into WAN clusters, combining their resources to speed up the creation of images during development. According to Nvidia the Iray Server can also stream interactive rendering from the server to another machine and submit jobs to a queue for easy management. This will allow the queue to be managed from any...

Will A New Theory On Black Holes Break The Laws Of Physics

Will A New Theory On Black Holes Break The Laws Of Physics

Black holes are messy in four dimensions. But add a fifth, and a black hole could shatter the laws of physics, scientists have shown. Researchers from the University of Cambridge in England and Queen Mary University of London have successfully simulated a black hole in five dimensions with a supercomputer. Instead of having a spherical shape, such a black hole resembles a very thin ring, which gives rise to a series of bulges. At first these bulges are connected via puny strings, but as time wears...

Is Europe Where Detachables Will Succeed?

Beancounters for IDC have added up the numbers, and divided by their shoe size, and come to the conclusion that Western Europe is getting more interested in detachable computers. IDC said that in the fourth quarter of 2015 over 14 million tablets were shipped to Western Europe as the market volume declined 10.1 per cent on year.

New Banking Malware Targets Android Users

Android has a new thing to worry about in the form of Acecard, a banking malware strain created by sophisticated, perhaps Russian, criminals with theft and shenanigans on their minds. Kaspersky, which is certainly Russian and often shakes a security pitchfork at one problem or another, warned that Acecard is a big threat to many people and should be avoided at all costs. Unfortunately that may not be as easy as it seems. Kaspersky said that Acecard can bypass Google Play security measures, and has...

Will Astronomers Find E.T. On ExoMoons?

When I was young, the only planets we knew about were the ones in our own solar system. Astronomers presumed that many of the other stars in the night sky had planets too, but this was sheer speculation. We could never know for sure, the thinking went, because such planets were ridiculously small and faint. To ever see or study them seemed a complete impossibility. “Extrasolar planets,” or “exoplanets,” were a staple of science fiction, but not of professional astrophysics. It’s...
