New technology is supposed to be an improvement over old technology. It should be more efficient, faster, smaller, or simply just better than its predecessors OR it must offer something so unique, so amazing that you forget that it, in fact, does nothing. It’s the reason smart phones, tablets, and ultrabooks are outselling dumb phones, computers, and laptops of days gone by. People like improvements.

NEW YORK, July 18, 2012 – Researchers at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) have assembled a powerful consortium of government and business support to advance beyond today's fourth generation (4G) wireless technologies toward 5G cellular networks that could potentially increase cell phone capacity by more than 1,000 times.
The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University today announced that it has received a $2.6 million contract (including option) from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a smart suit that helps improve physical endurance for soldiers in the field. The novel wearable system would potentially delay the onset of fatigue, enabling soldiers to walk longer distances, and also potentially improve the body's resistance to injuries when carrying heavy loads.
U.S. wireless carrier Sprint (S.N) said on Thursday it will move into the hot market for tracking technology that lets auto insurers monitor how, where and when their customers drive.
McDonald's workers in Paris who stopped a Canadian professor from wearing computerized eyeglasses feared he could be recording or photographing people in violation of their privacy, the company said Thursday.
Here’s an item that’s been sitting in my “interesting” folder for a while, but thankfully it will still be news for at least a couple more years. Did you know that changes are expected for kelvin? Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt (PTB) – the counterpart to NIST in the U.S. -- along with the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM), are determining a new value of the Boltzmann constant, the conversion factor between thermal and mechanical energy. Research groups must rely on a fundamental constant in order to redefine the thermodynamic temperature scale kelvin. According to the PTB, “only if several groups obtain the same result with at least two independent methods will a "water-free" definition of the kelvin become possible.” This news came to my attention via the folks at Mahr Federal, whose MarForm MFU 110 WP reference formtester is being used in the project.
Australia's Qantas Airways (QAN.AX), is the latest company to drop Research in Motion Ltd's (RIM.TO) Blackberry after employees voted in favor of Apple's (AAPL.O) iPhone in a survey.
We are witnessing a rapid multiplication of available conductive materials for printed and large area electronics on the market. The different materials distinguish themselves by their conductivity, particle size, curing conditions, availability and cost. New material breakthroughs for the printed and large area electronics industry will be one of the main topics at IDTechEx's Printed Electronics Asia event, which will take place on October 2-3 in Tokyo, Japan.
STMicroelectronics announced a miniature 6-axis sensor device with custom motion-recognition capabilities. ST’s latest iNEMO inertial module enhances user experience and motion-sensing realism in today’s space-constrained and power-hungry portable consumer devices and shortcuts the path to wearable sensor applications in sports, fitness and healthcare diagnostics.
A team of academics from the University of Southampton is set to take on the rest of the English Fantasy Football League when the new Barclays Premier League season kicks off next month (August).
(Reuters) - Wall Street has a long-running love affair with Google the search engine. But will it feel the same way about Google the hardware maker?
The debate over free access to publicly-funded scientific research will shift to the European Commission after the UK government backed a report calling for financial support for researchers to use so-called 'open access' science journals.
Forget videos of cute kittens or good deals on iPads. For the past few months, Google has been quietly turning its search capabilities to something far more challenging: criminals.
As silicon technology gets smaller, creating a large and powerful memory grows harder, say PhD candidate Elad Mentovich and his supervisor Dr. Shachar Richter of TAU's Department of Chemistry and Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Working with carbon molecules called C60, Mentovich has successfully built a sophisticated memory transistor that can both transfer and store energy, eliminating the need for a capacitor.
Clogged printer nozzles waste time and money while reducing print quality. University of Missouri engineers recently invented a clog-preventing nozzle cover by mimicking the human eye.
Today’s telecommunications industry is trending towards the use of 3.3-V relays in their end applications. Traditionally, only discrete components were available to switch and drive low-voltage relays. Each relay requires one transistor, one resistor, and in some cases a diode. Data routing applications need to switch and drive four-to-seven relays, requiring eight to 21 discrete components. Additionally, these applications often need
Molex Incorporated and Radiall announced the continued collaboration and expansion of their cost-effective SMP-MAX series with new symmetrical adapters and RF coaxial interconnect solutions for board-to-board, module-to-module and panel-to-panel telecom applications. As a second source, Molex is designing, manufacturing and marketing these connectors for global customers.
