+ - CPUShare: Grid Computing Cheaply

Submitted by
Diablo-D3
Diablo-D3 writes "Andrea Arcangeli, known for his kernel hacking, has decided to take on all the grid computing systems out there and has created CPUShare. As he describes it, "CPUShare allows the home users to profit from the significant power of their hardware that otherwise would be wasted every day," allowing us geeks with a thousand idle computers to profit for other people's need of CPU power."

+ - New Powered USB Part 3: Response to Slashdot

Submitted by
Patrick McFarland
Patrick McFarland writes "I've written a third, and hopefully final part, to the originally two part Why Powered USB Is Needed article that was featured on Slashdot three days ago, and this response is pretty much due to Slashdot users asking smart questions and poking a few holes in my argument. The third part covers how USB 3.0 essentially needs to follow in Firewire's footsteps to truly succeed and overcome people's views on USB as just a low bandwidth bus that no one uses seriously and, combined with New Powered USB, could overtake Firewire in high bandwidth applications."

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
