Significant Bits: CPU Design is Dead! Long Live CPU Design!

Any embedded programmer with even a passing familiarity with the PC business might have reason to despair. Computers were once a rich, thriving, vital, and exciting industry ripe with alternatives and possibilities, advances and innovations. Now it seems the computer industry has degenerated into a repackaging exercise for Intel (or AMD, or Cyrix) processors. One by one, Clipper, MIPS, PA-RISC, Alpha, and other once-mighty processors have faded from the scene, replaced by the ubiquitous Pentium II and its descendants. Don't microprocessors matter anymore? You bet they do.

The Business of E-Business

The benefits of e-business are obvious. We're bombarded with statistics on Internet growth and, more to the point, the rise in electronic commerce. We read about companies like Federal Express successfully handling two-thirds of its three million daily packages via online communications But taking advantage of e-business isn't just about technology. Success involves a good dose of understanding how the Web affects culture, public policy, and law.

Ed. - In a recent interview with IBM E-commerce director Scott Gannon, he said that E-business is more than e-commerce, but includes business to business sales and streamlining within the company.

DVD Flourishes Despite Format Feuds

Despite manufacturers' bickering over rewritable DVD formats and the lack of widespread acceptance of a DVD-audio spec, DVD technology remains on a sure course to serve in applications from living rooms to supercomputers.

Babies Take to New Computer Games

Harrison Eagle, 19 months old, doesn't talk much, but he does share his emotions freely. And this much is clear: He loves his BabyWow software. When it is in the computer, he is happily banging away on the keyboard, squealing with delight at the bananas and giraffes and other simple images and words coming from the PC.

The Good Times Virus : An Urban Legend for the Internet

Good Times will re-write your hard drive. It will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace-field harmonics to scratch any CDs you try to play.
It was only a matter time before urban legends made their way from our coffee tables to our desktops .

COM Apartments

Do you remember the elation you felt when you first understood the basic precept behind COM — that interfaces and implementations could be treated separately and that it was a good thing? Do you remember what it was like when you saw Visual Basic or Java consume your type library and were able to understand your COM object even though it was written in Visual C++? The experience of learning and understanding COM is full of little epiphanies. Figuring out how COM apartments work is another epiphany.

68 Microprocessor Report


Jim Turley

What's the Best Way to Benchmark?

A benchmark is like sex. Everybody wants it, everybody is sure of how to do it, but nobody can agree on how to compare performance. Part of the problem lies in the fact that microprocessor performance is not a one-dimensional vector. Microprocessor drag racing is all very nice, but the average embedded designer is looking to balance the often-contradictory demands of power consumption, performance, code density, price, interrupt response, and probably other factors. A combination that's good for one application may be unusable for another.

Computing in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe

Recent years have brought tremendous changes in the computer industry, in terms of available technology, the telecommunications field, and global information systems. How have Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union fared in this rapidly changing field and market? This paper will take an informative look at the history of computer development behind the iron curtain, the challenges of trying to catch up to Western technology, and will discuss how that has evolved into the modern information and technology market in that area today.

If You Can Breathe, You're Hired

The dearth of DBAs was understandable in the old days, when database-management tasks were tedious and repetitious, related to maintaining a stable and well-understood mainframe environment, and DBAs were relegated to corporate back rooms and equipment closets. But the role of the new DBA includes a great deal more creativity, visibility, and human interaction. In some circles, the DBA has been elevated to celebrity status and consults on industry trends, playing key roles in strategic planning and working with people inside and outside the corporation--from CFO to Web shopper--to help them understand and use the rapidly evolving technology. So people are flocking to this specialized field to meet the growing demand, right? Wrong.

`Randomness' Could Lead Hackers to Your Encryption Keys

They may look harmless, but screensavers could betray you while you're out at lunch. Two cryptographers have discovered that the randomness of the ``keys'' that are used to encode encrypted documents could be their downfall. The more random a private signature key is, the harder it is to crack encrypted files. But by scanning hard drives for chunks of data that are particularly random, it was found that it is possible to weed out keys stored on a disc.

The Cold, Hard Fax

Fax over Internet protocol (IP) burst on the scene about two years ago as a sure thing. With the potential to cut business customers' fax costs in half, it was poised to become a runaway easy sale for any Internet service provider (ISP) with a backbone. But in truth, IP fax has been harder to sell than it looks. Customer acceptance has been slow, and sales forces haven't been managed correctly. Most of the large national ISPs have deployed this value-added service, but nobody wants to talk about sales numbers.

Wavelength Division Multiplexing

Bandwidth in communications is like closet space in your home—you can never have enough. And Internet traffic is making the demand for communication capacity grow faster than the wardrobe of a teenager with a no-limit credit card. Bandwidth-hogging megabytes of animated graphics are replacing compact e-mail messages. The communications industry needs room to breathe.

Meta Tags: Intel Pentium III Launch

The slogan reads "This Way In" and the crowd of journalists pouring into the San Jose Convention Center are possibly the most gadget-happy group of hacks ever assembled. Besides the usual assortment of cell phones, pagers and laptops, there are a slew of the latest pocket communicators, digital cameras and minidisc recorders being wielded by the 100 plus members of the press that Intel has brought here to preview the launch of the Pentium III processor.

The IT Industry Is Full of Men. So What?

Research indicates that the majority of school-age girls aren't interested in using technology, and most don't even know what IT work entails. Relatively few women are embarking on or involved in lucrative technology-related careers. Many believe this is an uneducated mistake rather than an informed choice, and they are keen to redress the imbalance. So, what does it take to get more women interested in technology, and does IT really need them?

Marketing Needs Innovation

Sub-$1,000 systems. Project delays and cancellations due to Year 2000 jitters. Big brand names wading into the direct sales channel. These and a number of other factors combined are making the PC market an even nastier place to compete in than usual. When the going gets tough, the tough have to get innovative.

Ed. - Well, they've already come up with free email, free PCs and free long distance service. What can possibly be next? Free cars with the promise to always by gas from Exxon?

Adina Levin

Relationship Management Critical to Web Success

Do you worry about the Web? If you don't, maybe you should, because the Web is taking away some of your control over your business and giving it to your customers. As information sources proliferate, it gets harder and harder to get a customer to pay attention to your marketing messages. Unlike television, which people view passively, the Internet is an interactive medium. Your customer is in charge of the interaction and has a trigger finger on the mouse.

Entangled in the Web of life

No one, not even the National Computer Board, knew if the Internet was just a passing fad or a reality. But this did not deter Mr Stephen Yeo, who has just left the chief executive job at the NCB, from proving that the Internet is a key opportunity for exploitation for businesses and governments.

Outsourcing Search Engine Positioning

If you have a competitive keyword or keyphrase you're trying to get to the top of the search engines, it will take a great deal of learning, fine-tuning, resubmitting, and patience to get ranked in the Top 10 on a single search engine. To get a Top 10 ranking on 4 of the top 6 search engines will take even more work. The average small businessperson just doesn't have time to add search engine positioning to her weekly schedule.

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list,  rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community   reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's  3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
