    • Huawei says it has "recently introduced...Beyond LTE technology, which significantly increases peak rates to 30Gbps - over 20 times faster than existing commercial LTE networks."

      It claims to have achieved this with "key breakthroughs in antenna structure, radio frequency architecture, IF (intermediate frequency) algorithms, and multi-user MIMO (multi-input multi-output).

  • [ 25 de MARZO: "PARON EN FACEBOOK, 24 HORAS". CONTRA LA CENSURA EN LA RED. POR LA LIBERTAD DE EXPRESION de Jose Ramon Blasco Artatxo Dados los continuos ataques que sufren lus usuarios de facebook en lo que respecta a la LIBERTAD DE EXPRESION, varios colectivos y usuarios individuales convocan un PARON en facebook de 24 horas como protesta por esas agresiones. DichoPARON comenzaría a las 00.00 horas del día 25 de marzo, finalizando ese mismo día 25 a las 24.00. Se hace un llamamiento para que en esas 24 horas, no se cuelgue nada en la red, y si unos minutos antes como indicaremos al final de esta nota. El hecho de cercenar lla libertad de expresión, se agrava por ser objeto, quienes estan en esta red, de indefesión continua,ya que se dan los bloqueos sin explicación o con ambiguedades...Son "juicios sumarísimos" sin posibilidad de alegaciones ni pliegos de descargo...]

  • Interesting, but do they have a plan to implement ODBC at the Cloud level?  It's one thing to provide connectivity, exploration and analysis to non Cloud data and transaction servers.  And another to connect the data feeds into next generation compound documents.  Seems to me this is an effective first step, but the value remains elusive.  Left a comment on this page. exerpt: The startup’s offering, which has not been released yet, will connect to data stored in databases as well as the web and other sources, and adds a visual discovery component to make it easy for users to parse through this data and make sense of the information. The beauty of ClearStory is that it allows businesses to analyze internal and publicly available data at the same time and make this data easy for the masses to understand.

    • Imagine a timeline of the universe, complete with high-resolution videos and images, in which you could zoom from a chronology of Egypt’s dynasties and pyramids to the tale of a Japanese-American couple interned in a World War II relocation camp to a discussion of a mass extinction that occurred on Earth 200 million years ago – all in seconds.

      Based on an idea from a University of California, Berkeley, student, ChronoZoom – essentially a zoomable timeline of timelines augmented with multimedia features –- is coming to life.

  • Interesting, but lightweight interview with Ray Ozzie.  Look at the productivity comment in particular.  He also mentions "social productivity" as being an aspect of "communications".  My guess is that his new startup, Cocomo, will gear up towards a Cloud Productivity Platform where this new capability of integrated web communications is woven deep into collaborative productivity applications.  With enough juice to blow the legacy Windows - MSOffice Productivity environment out of the water.  We shall see. excerpt: When he joined Microsoft he thought it had a "tremendous history," he said, with great technology assets and people. But it was a company struggling to adjust to changes in the PC and server markets, he said. "I tried my best to communicate with various groups what their purpose in life was," he said. For instance, he tried to convince the Office group that it should focus on selling productivity, as opposed to selling PC-based productivity products, and the Xbox group that it should sell entertainment, not boxes or discs.
