    Article: Apple and Samsung Do It Again-dvcon_us-min.jpg

    Today I had the pleasure to speak with Tom Fitzpatrick, TPC Chair for the DVCon conference and exhibition slated for February 25-28 in the heart of Silicon Valley - San Jose. Tom lives in Massachusetts, a place where I used to live and work at Wang Labs, back in the day before the PC and WordPerfect software ended Wang's fortunes. We swapped stories about the first Personal Computers, and computer languages starting from BASIC all the way up to Python.



    DVCon spans four days, so ...

    Article: Apple's Ma Bell Moment-marathon-min.jpeg

    I always enjoy surprising synergies so I was immediately attracted to a Research Highlight in the Communications of the ACM this month, on a game-theoretic method to balance discretionary speed-ups (known as computational sprints) in data centers. If you don’t ...

    Article: Extending Wintel collaboration to Nokia?-mckinsey-mangles-micromobility.jpg

    Micromobility – characterized by shared bicycles, scooters and other wheeled devices - was all the rage in 2018 and that enthusiasm has carried over into 2019 - if McKinsey is to be believed. McKinsey published a white paper last week touting the glories of micromobility and a potential market of $300B-$500B ...

    Design Management software: RTDA FlowTracer/NetworkComputer vs. free comparison?-godel-min.jpeg

    Scanning ACM tech news recently, I came across a piece that spoke to my inner nerd; I hope it will appeal to some of you also. The discovery will have no impact on markets or investments or probably anyone outside theories ...

    Design Management software: RTDA FlowTracer/NetworkComputer vs. free comparison?-open-letter-ftc.jpg

    In December 2018 the FTC held hearings on Competition and consumer Protection in the 21st Century. A number of people spoke at the event and the FTC has graciously opened the discussion to public comments. The Federal Trade Commission has interest, certain responsibilities, and can affect changes to how data security evolves. This is our opportunity for ...

    Design Management software: RTDA FlowTracer/NetworkComputer vs. free comparison?-jeephack-repercussions.jpg

    Automotive cybersecurity is an intractable nightmare with significant though inchoate implications for consumers and existential exposure for auto makers. This reality became painfully clear earlier this month when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear FiatChrysler Automotive’s appeal in a class action lawsuit over allegations of vulnerabilities in its Jeeps ...

    Design Management software: RTDA FlowTracer/NetworkComputer vs. free comparison?-ces-2019-stormy-weather-ibm.jpg

    Ginni Rometty, chairman, president and CEO of IBM was kind enough to take on the task of an hour-long keynote at CES 2019 in Las Vegas last week. She used the opportunity to highlight three areas of computational innovation at IBM - deep data, broad AI and quantum systems – with the help of three partners: Delta Airlines, Wal-Mart and Exxon Mobile. ...

    Design Management software: RTDA FlowTracer/NetworkComputer vs. free comparison?-space-race-technology.jpg

    Until January 3, no human being had ever set eyes upon the “dark side” of the moon: the side always facing away from the Earth. It always remained a mystery. But no longer. China’s National Space Administration successfully landed a lunar lander, Chang’e-4, at South Pole-Aitken, ...

    Tackling large-scale SoC and FPGA prototyping debug challenges-mad-spies.jpg

    Anybody who’s ever read the iconic MAD magazine would be familiar with the wordless Spy vs Spy cartoon. First published in January, 1961, it features two agents involved in stereotypical and comical espionage activities. One is dressed in white, and the other in black, but they are otherwise identical. A parody of the political ideologies of the Cold War, the strip is now in its 68th year and continues to delight its loyal readers. ...
