Does Windows 8 Give us a Short Time View on Intel?

March 1, 2012

We used to refer to them as WINTEL. Microsoft and Intel were connected to each other at the hip.  Servers, Desktops, Laptops all were in their sphere of control. 

Then Came Linus Torvold's contribution to the Unix world and we got a stable open source kernel that stopped the warring factions on Unix and made Linux and LAMP the server side solution.

The Power at the Edge

October 28, 2011

People are expecting that the way they communicate in their everyday life is all part of the services they buy with their phone.  The regulatory concepts of access and content mean little to end user.  They expect that everything works, and they have not noticed that everything does not work together.

Interview with Chris Mayer, Verizon VP

4G LTE It's Rockin The Speeds and Feeds.

October 25, 2011

It’s hard to argue with common sense.


For those who don’t know Verizon is making it happen with over 160 cities turned up so far with amazing speeds above their promised numbers.  Once the load gets on the network they will deliver what they promised, but as Chris points out it’s hard to imagine an application for consumers that notices the difference between 10 MB down and 21 MB down.

While attending the IIT RTC event I was fortunate to interview with Chris Mayer of Verizon about the state of 4G LTE.  Chris is involved in the development and design of systems integration and testing and his insight as to where we stand with Verizon Wireless 4G LTE roll out is informative.
