Raspberry Pi

 

Raspberry Pi is a project being developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation that wants to produce a very cheap computer that is as small as a credit card. The main purpose of the project is to provide cheap hardware and software solutions for teaching programming languages to kids, but it had lots of attention from IT enthusiasts because of the price and the endless possibilities of usage.

When I first saw this project, my first thought was :
“I wonder if this thing can be used to make an HTPC with a DVB-S2 USB tuner. From the hardware point of view it certainly can. I can´t wait to get my hands on one of this delicious Raspberries.

IBM processors work like the Human brain

For over 30 years, IBM introduced the first PC and now prepares to once again revolutionize the world of technology.

Brain CPU

Brain CPU

Funded in part by DARPA – which contributed 28.5 million euros to the project of “cognitive computing” – IBM has created a prototype that uses parallel processing for multitasking and, more importantly, it adapts to new information, even if unexpected. Dharmendra Modha, the man behind the project at IBM Research, says that “we can not use hardly any knowledge about the design of chips.”
