In a recent news article on TG Daily, Intel said would have confirmed the partnership with Google, stating that they find the Giant's move. "We know the project for some time and we have worked with Google on a number of projects, including here. We are pleased with Google's move here," an Intel rep told TG Daily. Cooperation between the two can play a response from Microsoft, which actively cooperates with Intel during the entire existence. This can only fuel earlier rumors that the software giant is preparing a system that could support the ARM micro-architecture.

In addition to the Chrome OS project, Intel and Google co-operation extended to other products of two companies, namely the former future mobile Internet device (MID) platform, android OS. In a recent news article on Digi Times sources at Taiwan-based MID makers, Intel, the hardware platforms are supported in a variety of operating systems, the allocation of next-generation Moorestown platform greater chance of success.

Google Chrome and android OS has benefited from the major media exposure, with some reports claiming that it can provide tools for a change in the industry for computers and mobile devices.

IP address from a server in Texas and is a Microsoft server, Rossano Ferraris, research engineer at CA Internet Security Business Unit, notes.

Please visit the link are prompted to download a file named remtool_conf.exe the implementation of which, according to a EULA Symantec offers to start scanning the computer. Instead of carrying out a malware scan, the application contacts another host where it downloads winupdate.exe identified by CA as Delphi project CX. The counterfeit removal tool is detected as Fake Scan A.

"Although there is a reduction in the number of fake Microsoft Update e-mail, the fake e-mails that are more sophisticated and uses a very high profile social engineering techniques to attract and trap people," Mr. Ferraris meters warns.

Meanwhile, Julie Yeats, malware analysts, your antivirus vendor Sophos, describes a similar issue campaign aimed at users of Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express mail clients.

The update is critical and offers the latest version of Microsoft Outlook / Outlook Express and provides maximum stability and security," the statement read.

Supporting officexp-KB910721-fullfile-enu.exe is an installer for Trojan / Spy-CU. "It seems reasonable, spelling and grammar is surprisingly accurate, the malware authors, but as always, must always be careful when it comes to e-mail attachments," Ms. Yeats warns. Windows users are recommended to download security patches through Automatic Updates or download from Microsoft's website directly.

AMD launches new quad-core Opteron processor codenamed 'Suzuka'

Written by IT News on 9:09 AM

quad-core Opteron processorAdvanced Micro Devices came on the market with a new line of Opteron chips, soon after the release of the six-core Opteron processor code-named "Istanbul". The new silicon solution, John Fruehe, Director of Business Development for Server / Workstation products at AMD, says falls under the code name "Suzuka" and hits the market as a quad-core processor designed for single-socket system.

Suzuka does not seem to come on stage as a beautiful product, but it is intended to satisfy the needs of cost-effective SME market. The latest AMD Opteron 1000 Series processor, Fruehe says is not to provide scalability, but the program that suits cost and power-awareness, such as web servers, small servers and workstations.

The new chip with a speed of 2.5 GHz (Opteron 1381), 2.7GHz (Opteron 1385) and 2.9GHz (Opteron 1389) has been developed in the same way as the company "Shanghai" CPU, a quad-core Opteron processor. Suzuka, made during the 45-nm SOI technology, comes with x86-64 processor cores on a monolithic die, and features 512 KB of L2 cache per core, in combination with a shared 6 MB L3 cache.

The new processors will use the AM3 socket and not the 1207-pin Socket F, while offering compatibility with existing AM2 + mobs (can be easily used on motherboards that work with Budapest quad-core chip - the only contact version of Barcelona). The new solutions feature system bus speeds of 2200 MT / s (Hyper Transport bus speed of 1100 MHz), while sporting a rated TDP of around 115 W.

According to John Fruehe, performance increases when moving from a quad-core "Budapest" chip to the new "Suzuka is not the most impressive part of the process is the fact that energy is substantially reduced with the new processor. As for the price of the new chips to the market with the Opteron 1381 costs U.S. $189, Opteron 1385 goes for $229, while the Opteron in 1389 a price of $269.

ARCHOS 9 PCtablet

The tablet will be offered initially with Windows Vista in September 2009 and only With Windows 7.

Personally, I am not sure that a keyboard smaller netbook is the way to go. Sure, the unit does sport a touch-sensitive 9 "screen, but will not compensate for deficiencies in relation to the missing keyboard. In the world of computers, Tablet PCs and netbooks serve different purposes. Internet communications service resources is an important aspect of functionality netbooks - communication that is largely related to social networks, instant messaging, e-mail, all activities where a full keyboard is a godsend.

The ARCHOS 9 PCtablet has built a virtual keyboard, but will occupy valuable real estate on the screen space. At 9 inches, the touch screen just can not be the virtual keyboard, a couple IM windows and the user's fingers. At the same time, the benefits associated with natural user interface may be sufficient to fill the gaps meaningless.

"On 9 ARCHOS features of the new Z515 Intel processor, Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and an integrated multimedia platform that uses Wi-Fi 802.11b / g and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity for high-speed computers everywhere and always. Additional software includes Microsoft Office Web TV & Radio, video, antivirus, parental control, pictures and movies edition applications and much more.

The expected sales in Japan, the new netbook look at a number of benefits touted by an 8.5 hour battery life.

Even if it comes at a time when the netbook market is already overcrowded, the Lavia Light Lui looks to compete with all the Atom-based systems in the present situation. Packing group an Intel Atom N280 processor clock at 1.66GHz with 1GB of RAM, the 10.1-inch solution has the same technical specifications as the newest netbooks on Intel Atom platform. Moreover, the system is shown with 1 GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and less estimated integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics chip.

For connectivity, the netbook offers pretty much what to expect from a computer in its category, a 10/100 Ethernet LAN port, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1, an SD memory card reader and a 1.3MP webcam. Boasting Microsoft's successful and well-known Windows XP SP3, the new model is said to provide users with a battery life of 8.5 hours, which is quite impressive, even for a netbook.
