Submission + - Geocities is No More (geocities.com)

Tuxedo Jack writes: After fifteen years of hosting sites, Geocities, a popular free web host, is shutting down its services today. Users may remember this site as being one of, if not the, largest webhosts during the late 1990s and early 2000s, and many will, no doubt, have had sites there at one time or another. Yahoo, owner of the service since 1999, is recommending that all users migrate to their paid hosting, though they are linking to free hosts for people who do not wish to pay. Goodbye, Geocities; though we'll miss the funeral, XKCD is holding its own memorial service.

Submission + - Tilera building a 100 core CPU (icrontic.com)

primesuspect writes: Tilera is building a 10x10 mesh CPU capable of running Linux. The Tile-Gx100 uses an array of 10×10 cores linked with a mesh interconnect system dubbed “iMesh” and 256kb of L2 cache per core for a 26MB virtual L3 cache. The Tile-Gx100 processor will purportedly offer performance exceeding Intel’s forthcoming 8-core 16-thread Nehalem CPU “by a factor of four running Linux infrastructure workloads”.

Comment Try Motion Computing. (Score 4, Informative) 176

They're slate PCs and they're damn good.

In my experience, Motion doesn't skimp on hardware, is reliable as hell, and the external batteries will LAST - my little brother's old LE1600 still gets six hours of battery life off the primary and secondary batteries with everything on and cranked up to full (and Win7 Professional).

No matter what manufacturer you go with, I strongly urge that you go to Windows 7 for this - the handwriting support is worlds better than in Vista, and that was a hell of a leap from XP Tablet.

They are kinda expensive, though.
