Researchers At Georgia Tech Develop An Auto Detect Keyboard

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have emerged from their smoke filled labs with an intelligent keyboard which cleans itself and can identify users by the pattern and style of their fingertips and keystrokes. Dubbed the “human-machine interfacing” device, the keyboard was reported in the American Chemical Society’s academic journal “Nano.” If it works it could provide a foolproof way to prevent unauthorized users from gaining direct access to computers and stop the return key...

Hacker Forum Working To On Evolving Malware

Notorious malware kjw0rm and Sir DoOoM have been uncovered in a hacker forum as evolved versions, developed with advanced functionality, according to researchers at Trend Micro. A threat response engineer at Trend Micro, Michael Marcos, said that he uncovered the malware while examining the Arabic language on a bogus “computer enthusiast site”, called dev-point.com forum. “One of the notable topics in the forum talked about new malware ‘kjw0rm’ and a worm named ‘Sir DoOom’,...

Astronomers Pinpoint Gamma-Ray Burst Outside The Milky Way

Scientists have detected the origins of three bright gamma-ray signals from objects beyond our own Milky Way galaxy for the first time, including one signal from a strange “superbubble” of gas. The gamma-ray signals from three very different astronomical objects were detected in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) — the biggest satellite galaxy of the Milky Way — by a telescope network in Africa. They are spewing high-energy gamma-rays and are giving the Milky Way a run for its money. Two...

RHEL Finally Available On IBM’s Power8

IBM has made the Power8 version of the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) beta available through its Power Development Platform (PDP) as the firm continues to build support for its Power systems. IBM and Red Hat announced in December that RHEL 7.1 was adding support for the Power8 processor in little endian instruction format, as the beta release was made available for testers to download. This version is available for developers and testers to download from today through the IBM PDP and at IBM...

Strange Signal Points To Merging Black Holes

Strange Signal Points To Merging Black Holes

A mysterious light signal from a faraway galaxy could point to two supermassive black holes finishing up a merger in the galaxy’s core, new research reveals. Scientists saw repeating pulses from a quasar — a bright galactic core powered by at least one huge black hole — and say the light is likely being generated during the latter stages of a monster black hole collision. If this interpretation is correct, researchers could learn a great deal more about the final phases of such mergers,...

ARM Develops IoT For Students

ARM has created a course to teach IoT skills to students at University College London (UCL) The course is designed to encourage graduates in science, technology, engineering and maths (Stem) to seek careers in IT. The IoT Education Kit will teach students how to use the Mbed IoT operating system to create smartphone apps that control mini-robots or wearable devices. Students are expected to be interested in building their own IoT business, or joining IoT-focused enterprises like ARM. The course...

Rumors Say Samsung Is Quietly Seeking To Buy Blackberry

For a while, the rumor mill has manufactured hell on earth yarns claiming that Samsung is set to buy the Canadian smartphone maker Blackberry. The deal always seems to fall through, and in any event has never happened. However the Financial Post has found evidence that this time Samsung is actively pursuing a plan to take over or buy a significant stake in BlackBerry. The story is still a rumour because both companies have denied such a plan may be in the works, but a document obtained by the Financial...

NGTS Joins The Hunt For Alien Planets

A new alien-planet–hunting telescope has just come online in Chile, and it could help scientists peer into the atmospheres of relatively small planets circling nearby stars. The Next-Generation Transit Survey (NGTS for short) — located at the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Paranal Observatory — is designed to seek out planets two to eight times the diameter of Earth as they pass in front of their stars. Such a planet will cause the light of the star to dip ever so slightly when...

The ESA Goes With Red Hat For Cloud Services

The European Space (ESA) has deployed a private, on-premise cloud platform designed to serve its community in Europe. The infrastructure is partly based on a custom version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). The ESA Cloud needs to be constantly available to the space agency’s large user base, ensuring high levels of reliability and flexibility and the management capabilities of a modern IT environment, according to Red Hat. Hosted applications include software development and testing, satellite...

Do Game Developers Have Unrealistic Expectations?

Over the last few years, the industry has seen budget polarization on an enormous scale. The cost of AAA development has ballooned, and continues to do so, pricing out all but the biggest warchests, while the indie and mobile explosions are rapidly approaching the point of inevitable over-saturation and consequential contraction. Stories about the plight of mid-tier studios are ten-a-penny, with the gravestones of some notable players lining the way. For a company like Ninja Theory, in many ways...

Astronomers Using The Milky Way’s Galactic Skeleton To Uncover Mysteries

Astronomers Using The Milky Way’s Galactic Skeleton To Uncover Mysteries

Scientists are finding more evidence of a galactic “skeleton” lurking inside the appendages of the Milky Way, and studying these massive “bones” could help researchers get a better idea of what our galaxy looks like from the outside. In 2013, researchers first suggested that long, thin, dense clouds of gas may form inside the spiral arms of the Milky Way, creating a sort of galactic skeleton that traces the shape of these massive structures. At the time, only one such “bone”...

Canonical To Jump Deeper Into The IoT With Ubuntu

Canonical has announced a new version of the Ubuntu operating system designed to bring a united front to the Internet of Things (IoT), after a preview alpha was trialed late last year. The super-stripped down, lightweight Snappy Ubuntu Core is designed to allow developers to create IoT applications quickly and easily and release them securely across the network. This means that many devices with firmware that would have been unpatched after vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed can now be updated quickly,...

Microsoft Looking Into Light Beams

Microsoft Researchers have worked out a way that means you will never have to plug in your phone again. Yunxin Liu, Zhen Qin and Chunshui Zhao from Microsoft Research’s Beijing campus have developed a new system they call AutoCharge. The researchers’ paper said that “wireless power methods have several disadvantages, preventing them from being used in our targeted usage scenarios” Electromagnetic radiation of wireless power is much higher than wireless communications (Wi-Fi...

Will Apple Drop Intel?

Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich has shrugged off rumors that Apple is about to switch to ARM in future Mac releases. Of course the Tame Apple Press is declaring that this will mean the end of Intel as we know it. AppleInsider even ran a story claiming that Intel’s mobile was effectively destroyed by Apple’s Ax ARM Application Processors After all only five or six percent of the world run on Apple Macs so the loss of Apple business would be annoying to Intel but no great problem. Krzanich says the...
