New Tech Could Allow Super-Speed Internet on Old Phone Lines

New Tech Could Allow Super-Speed Internet on Old Phone Lines | Infotech | Scoop.it

 

Gigabit internet has the potential to be fast and amazing. But the prospect of “Download entire movies in mere seconds!” is a mere pipedream if you don’t have access to those lightning fast fibre lines.

 

But thanks to a new approach from Alcatel-Lucent, your creaky old copper phone lines might be good enough.

 

That’s a really big deal if it actually works.

A flaw in Samsung Smart TVs was discovered that could allow hackers to control the camera and watch users in their living rooms.

The flaws enabled hackers to remotely turn on the TVs' built-in cameras without leaving any trace of it on the screen.

More Reports of Technology Giants Interested in Internet TV Show That the Problem Isn't Technology | Public Knowledge

More Reports of Technology Giants Interested in Internet TV Show That the Problem Isn't Technology | Public Knowledge | Infotech | Scoop.it

Rumors of Intel's and Apple's interest in launching some kind of online cable service have been circulating for months. Years, even. It's clear that major tech companies have the technology ready, and they've been making phone calls and taking meetings. People talk, reports get written. Now, we can add Google to the mix. As the Wall Street Journal first reported, it's interested in launching some kind of online TV service, too—one that is intended to actually substitute for a traditional pay TV subscription by having current, popular shows from both cable and broadcast channels, and not just supplement it with on-demand access to a back catalog or user-generated content.

 

So with all these rumors, and all these giant tech companies involved, why haven't we actually seen a service get launched? The technology's ready. Other countries already have online cable TV--Sweden's Magine, a company that outright says "We’re meaning to replace your cable network," is expanding internationally. Why doesn't the US?

 

Well, the Journal's report explains why: "There is no guarantee Google, or any of the technology companies, will be able to strike licensing deals." And as the New York Times writes, "No deals are imminent."

 

There are no technology barriers to launching an Internet cable service at scale. High-quality video is being delivered reliably over the Internet every day. It doesn't require re-engineering the Internet, tiered plans, or Internet fast lines. I'm sure, too, that the experience of using the prototype services Apple, Google, Intel, and who knows who else has worked up is great, and much better than your run-of-the-mill cable set-top box experience. By and large the technology issues have been solved.

 

The barrier is the deals—incumbent video providers are not about to let themselves be "disrupted" without a fight. Through their buying power, they can prevent content from going online. The media marketplace is so concentrated, on both the production and the distribution side, that just one or two companies can veto new entrants.

Her Leadership on High-speed Internet Project Puts Canadian Province on Top | WhatsYourTech.ca

Her Leadership on High-speed Internet Project Puts Canadian Province on Top | WhatsYourTech.ca | Infotech | Scoop.it

Multi-million dollar technology investments have made Nova Scotia one of the most connected jurisdictions in Canada and in North America.

 

Tourism and agriculture are industry staples, beautiful scenery and welcoming residents are noted calling cards. But Information and Communication Technology, ICT, is one of the province’s fastest growing sectors. That economic growth runs along a high speed Internet network that now extends throughout the province.

 

It took years of drive and vision to see broadband Internet services extended deep into the province’s rural areas and along its rugged coastline, and it took a $75 million project headed up by Nancy Flam, Project Director and Senior Policy Analyst, Nova Scotia Department of Economic Development and Rural Tourism.

 

As team leader for the implementation of Broadband for Rural Nova Scotia (BRNS), Nancy led the way in spreading that vision and drive to connect citizens, businesses, public and health services, universities and training institutions: all Nova Scotians.

 

BRNS assured the province could boast 100% broadband coverage to more than a thousand previously unserved and underserved communities.

ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice

ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice | Infotech | Scoop.it

In 2010, the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (UNESCO IITE) and the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education agreed to collaborate on a joint project to develop a Review of Innovative Practice – a report presenting concrete examples of practice of the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with people with disabilities in different educational contexts and settings. In particular, the Review was targeted at considering examples of practice that can be considered to be ‘innovative’ within the specific educational setting and wider societal context they were situated within.

This book lays out the concepts necessary to understand how a computer works.

For reasons of clarity, the authors have deliberately chosen examples that apply to machines from all eras, without having to water down the contents of the book. This choice helps to show how techniques, concepts and performances have evolved since the first computers.
The book is divided into five parts. The first four, which are of increasing difficulty, are the core of the book: “Elements of a Basic Architecture”, “Programming Model and Operation”, “Memory Hierarchy”, “Parallelism and Performance Enhancement”. The final part provides hints and solutions to the exercises in the book as well as appendices. The reader may approach each part independently based on their prior knowledge and goals.

Table of Contents

PART 1. ELEMENTS OF A BASIC ARCHITECTURE
Chapter 1. Introduction
Chapter 2. The Basic Modules
Chapter 3. The Representation of Information

PART 2. PROGRAMMING MODEL AND OPERATION
Chapter 4. Instructions
Chapter 5. The Processor
Chapter 6. Inputs and Outputs

PART 3. MEMORY HIERARCHY
Chapter 7. Memory
Chapter 8. Caches
Chapter 9. Virtual Memory

PART 4. PARALLELISM AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT
Chapter 10. Pipeline Architectures
Chapter 11. Example of an Architecture
Chapter 12. Caches in a Multiprocessor Environment
Chapter 13. Superscalar Architectures

PART 5. APPENDICES

Appendix A. Hints and Solutions
Appendix B. Programming Models

There are many books on computers, networks, and software engineering but none that integrate the three with applicationsIntegration is important because, increasingly, software dominates the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of complex computer and systems. Books onsoftware engineering typically portray software as if it exists in a vacuum with no relationship to the wider system. This is wrong because a system is more than software. It is comprised of people, organizations, processes, hardware, and software. All of these components must be considered in an integrative fashion when designing systems. On the other hand, books on computers and networks do not demonstrate a deep understanding of the intricacies of developing software. In this book you will learn, for example, how toquantitatively analyze the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of computers, networks, and software in relation to the total system. Furthermore, you will learn how to evaluate and mitigate therisk of deploying integrated systems. You will learn how to apply many models dealing with the optimization of systems. Numerous quantitative examples are provided to help you understand and interpret model results. This book can be used as a first year graduate course in computer, network, and software engineering; as an on-the-job reference for computer, network, and software engineers; and as a reference for these disciplines.

Table of Contents

Part One Computer Engineering
1. Digital Logic and Microprocessor Design 3
2. Case Study in Computer Design 63
