Internet allows that any computer cans communicate with any other computer independently of the distance. This is not magic but is thanks to large cables buried in the seabed that ply the seas and oceans around the world. ¿Do you want know the technology of these cables? Fill your mind with "The impressive submarine cables (first part)"

SIGGRAPH 2010 logo
The SIGGRAPH is the annual conference of computer graphics most important of the world where converge the art and the science. This conference it's performed since the year 1974 and in this post I'm going to present the science papers, animations and inventions that more have attracted my attention of the SIGGRAPH of this year that ended in July. Read more of "The best of the SIGGRAPH 2010"

Photo of a sign on the beach
At present, we find a lot of beachs that has Wifi. Go to the beach to surf by Internet can make us seem a bit geek, although this is not the motive to quit. However, there are others that produces more serious problems. In this post I'm going to deepen in these. Continue discovering "Problems of Internet on the beach"

Processor
In this post I'm going to do predictions about how will be the hardware of the future, but not guiding me neither by the movement of the stars nor the Tarot cards, instead I'm going to base my predictions in the market evolution and some trends.
Since the years 40, the computers are being build following the John von Neumann architecture, with one processor, a memory and a controller of input/output. This will change sometime? I think so. Don't stop reading the rest of "Four predictions about the hardware of the future"

Procesador
At the prior post we saw how the computers are every time more fast due to the increase of density of the transistors linked to its continuous size reduction. By one hand, the augment of transistor allow make more operations by second, and by the other hand, decrease its size allows enhance the clock frequency, but this second way of optimization was stalled at 2003. See why. Deep in "Ghz: Why are stalled? "

Gordon Moore’s photo
Gordon Moore, one of the Intel founders, published in a magazine of 1965 a "law" known as Moore's Law, that tells: "the number of transistor of a processor doubles every 24 month". Can be interpreted as: "every two years the processors are twice fast at the same price". That "law" it's satisfied every year, but, Will stop at sometime?
