China’s new TaihuLight has been added to the TOP500 List, ranking as the world’s fastest supercomputer. It tops its Chinese predecessor, Tianhe-2, which ranked #1, until recently.
While technology companies are routinely building massive data centers to store their data, a group of researchers have developed a data system using DNA molecules.
Engineers from Xerox PARC have provided what could be a revolutionary tool for high-end security applications, a chip that has a self-destruct command. It was developed as part of DARPA’s vanishing programmable resources project.
There are plenty of players in the smartphone market, but there’s only one king making the big money—and that’s Apple.
We all know that most electronic devices like PCs, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and even calculators are mainly made from materials that are toxic and don’t easily decompose naturally.
