The Amazon Kindle fiasco brings up a host of issues related to digital property management and individual rights. For those with a personal (read: financial) stake in E-reader technology, it’s a shot across the bow. It puts them on the defensive, as one company (that would be Amazon) has unwittingly put out a negative ad campaign against E-readers.
Nissan Motor today previewed its electric vehicle (EV) platform on a Tiida-based prototype. It also showcased a sophisticated EV-IT system developed to support electric driving 24/7. The dedicated EV platform is comprised of a highly rigid body, high-performance motor, compact lithium-ion battery with high power output and energy capacity.
Using devices millionths of a meter in size, physicists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a technique to determine the mass of a single molecule, in real time. The mass of molecules is traditionally measured using mass spectrometry, in which samples consisting of tens of thousands of molecules are ionized, to produce charged versions of the molecules, or ions.
Suitable for any application that requires a field-installable connector, the Han PushPull Power 4/0 termination from Harting is vibration-resistant, requires no special tooling, and is designed for high contact densities.
AT&T revived the issue of network neutrality over the weekend by blocking the 4Chan message board. On Sunday, 4Chan founder Christopher Poole posted a notice that AT&T was "filtering/blocking img.4chan.org" for AT&T customers. AT&T confirmed the blocking, but said it was because of a denial-of-service attack on 4Chan that began on Friday. It said access was blocked temporarily to prevent the attack from impacting its other customers, and "was in no way related to the content at img.4chan.org."
Providing power management and prolonged battery life for DisplayPort-based notebooks using LCD monitors, the VPP1606, VPA2000, and VPA1100 from IDT work individually or in conjunction with one another to provide a solution integrating a backlight LED driver and TCON into one device, which works in conjunction with a power management IC.

The University of Ghent (UGent) and the nanoelectronics research center IMEC demonstrated , depending on the spatial distribution of the light used. These fundamental research results might have major consequences for telecommunication and optical signal processing.
Designed for applications ranging from communications to factory automation equipment, the PXA and PXB DC-DC converter Series feature a 1 in x 1 in footprint. The PXA Series offers single-output models with nominal inputs of 24 V and 48 VDC in 2:1 and wide 4:1 versions. The PXB Series offers both single and dual-output models with nominal inputs
The tweets still fly and the videos hit YouTube whenever protesters take to the streets in Iran - even as the Internet battle there turns more grueling. Authorities appear to be intensifying their campaign to block Web sites and chase down the opposition online, and the activists search for new ways to elude them.
