Eric Schmidt has predicted the future of the Internet for the next five years

According to Google CEO Eric Schmidt, in five years on the Internet will dominate the content in Chinese. The forecast is one of the captains of Internet business has made in interviews during the event, Gartner Symposium / ITxpo Orlando 2009, held last week.

Schmidt reasonably believes that today's teenagers will change the face of the Internet of the future. Five years later, young professionals will be no problem to move from one web application to another, which makes now the young users. In doing so, they can significantly improve performance of computers, as well as increased speed internet connections, which exceeds 100 MB / sec. Such high speed, in turn, will contribute to the development of various Internet services, including streaming TV and radio broadcasts. In addition, Schmidt notes that the information obtained in real time, has the same value as any other. Therefore, Google intends to include the indexing of such information in its search service.

Schmidt also spoke about the new operating system, Google OS. According to him, netbooks on the software platform will appear in 2010, as Google OS itself can operate in offline mode.

14.6 megapixel CMOS sensor for Toshiba phones

Toshiba Corporation today announced a new CMOS sensor designed for use in digital cameras and mobile phones. This sensor has a resolution of 14.6 megapixels and is equipped with the technology back illumination (BSI). Using this technology, the luminous flux passing through the lens, is directed to the back surface of the sensor, where it is freely absorbed by the photodiodes. At the same time in the conventional matrix light falls on the front part, where its absorption is limited to existing strapping.

According to Toshiba, the use of technology has enhanced the rear lights, the sensor sensitivity and its rate of absorption of light by 40 percent compared with existing models. And this, in turn, increases the quality of the photographs, making the image brighter. By the way, BSI technology has been successfully used in their products by such well-known companies as OmniVision and Sony. Moreover, the use of back lighting not only improves image quality, but also to maintain a compact physical size of the sensor with an increase in resolution, which is especially important for cellular phones.

The first samples of 14.6 megapixel CMOS sensor from Toshiba technology to support the rear lights will be dropped from the assembly line in December, and their mass production will begin in the third quarter of 2010. Also reported that when new sensors will be used the 65 nm process technology.

GSM version of the smartphone Motorola DROID, video

The network has started a video demonstrating Motorola DROID, but not CDMA model for the U.S. operator Verizon Wireless, a network version for GSM. In view of the device does not differ from the presented yesterday to the original, this is the same QWERTY slider, but it has a slot for a SIM card, which indicates support for GSM networks and, possibly, 3G. This means that soon smartphone Motorola DROID may receive from other operators in the United States and in Europe. But so far nothing is known about when this will happen.

With regard to the characteristics of the GSM version of Motorola DROID, and it is not clear. It is logical to assume that the basic functionality remains the same, that is, the apparatus will be 3.7-inch touchscreen display, 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, autofocus and image stabilization, an accelerometer, Wi-Fi adapter and Bluetooth, GPS receiver, and so on. And, of course, the operating system Android 2.0.

Nintendo DSi LL / XL - a new portable console with a 4.2-inch displays

The company Nintendo, in fact, will soon be releasing a new portable game console, as intended by hearsay. It will be called the DSi LL and will be released in Japan on November 21. The device will be performed in the same clamshell form factor with two displays, as the previous model - Nintendo DSi. Only displays will be significantly larger - 4.2 inches instead of 3.25. Lower, as before, will touch. Naturally, the new larger and heavier than the predecessor: 161x91, 4x21, 2 mm and 314 grams. In addition, the Nintendo DSi LL increased battery life: 13-17 hours of the minimum brightness of the display and 4-5 hours - at maximum brightness. Ports, microphone and speakers, as well as cameras at Nintendo DSi LL will remain unchanged.

The cost of a new handheld console in Japan amount to 20 000 yen ($ 221), it will be available in red, dark brown and white colors.

One can suppose that in other European countries, as well as in the U.S. new will at the same time and under the same name.

Intel and Numonyx developed a multi-layer memory

Intel and Numonyx announced a significant breakthrough in the creation of Phase Change Memory (PCM) - a new type of nonvolatile memory with the possibility of creating multi-layered arrays on a single chip. This will create a high-speed storage and memory with random access, which will have a higher density data storage, lower power consumption and miniature size.

In joint research companies were able to develop a method for forming a multilayer memory based on phase transitions, be able to produce a vertically integrated cell PCMS. Each includes two elements that are in parallel layers: PCM and the switching module Ovonic Threshold Switch (OTS). Together PCMS form a junction array. Ability to impose layers of PCMS cells to each other can increase the density of information storage, while maintaining the characteristics of single-layer phase memory.

Phase memory cells are created by combining elements of data storage and switching element. Use PCM as an element of data storage has long sought, but has previously been used several types of switching elements, which restricts the arrays on the size and efficiency. Numonyx and Intel's engineers were able to use thin-film dvuhterminalny OTS as the switching element. It corresponds to the physical and electrical properties of PCM, opening the possibility of scaling. Thanks to this innovation made possible the creation of multi-memory.

Intel and Numonyx connect the memory cell with CMOS structures, which provide the logic functions and signal conversion. The developers have demonstrated that the dumping of information stored in the cells, is carried out for 9 ns, and the memory itself does not lose properties, even after 1 million erase / write cycles. More information will be contained in the joint report, "The multilayer nodal memory based on phase transitions» (A Stackable Cross Point Phase Change Memory), presented at the International Electron Devices Meeting 2009 in Baltimore (Maryland) on December 9.

Apple rejected the Intel Moorestown platform

Resource Fudzilla, referring to anonymous sources from the number of producers, said that Apple has removed the possibility ispolzvaoniya in its product platform for Intel Moorestown. For this information, the reason for refusal was irrational power consumption chipset. It is stated that Apple requires solutions that consume energy when idle is about ten times less than it does Moorestown. Until then, while Intel's will not be able to reduce power consumption, the probability of its chipsets in mobile devices (phones, media players, etc.) are not too large. At the moment in terms of cost Intel significantly inferior to Nvidia, representing the market platform Tegra.

Indirectly, this information also confirms the rumors about the development by Apple Tablet PC, since only in this case may require high performance and cost associated with the presence of a large screen. Moorestown well as versions of the Atom, does not differ particularly economical, resulting in unnecessary reduction in working hours in all modes.
