  4. IT security is national securitybut you're not aloneThu, 17 Apr 2014 16:00:00 -0700
    National security may be at stake as private businesses try to manage a growing number of cyberthreats, but IT professionals shouldnt have to bear that burden alone.That was one of the messages from a conference earlier this week where threat experts from Kaspersky Lab shared the stage with corporate security chiefs and the former U.S. secretary of homeland security. There were also a few tips for facing up to the problem.If the private sector goes down, and critical infrastructure, [then] more often than not ... you have national security at risk as well, said Tom Ridge, who led the new Department of Homeland Security in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Because government relies so much on critical infrastructure such as power grids, communications networks and transportation, and because of the way malware spreads, the line between attacks against states and attacks against companies is blurry.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  6. Enterprise who? Google says little about Apps, business cloud services in Q1 reportThu, 17 Apr 2014 15:35:11 -0700
    Google did little during its first-quarter earnings report to shush critics who say its Enterprise unit is a second-class citizen in its kingdom.The company gave no substantial details regarding overall sales trends for the Enterprise business, nor for individual products such as the Google Apps cloud email and collaboration suite, the Compute Engine IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) tool and the App Engine PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) offering.Top IT and business executives pay close attention to how well the products of their existing and prospective vendors are doing, to make sure they dont invest in wares with uncertain futures.I think CIOs would like to see Google report [Enterprise unit] revenues in more detail so they have a better sense of Googles commitment to their market, said Forrester Research analyst Ted Schadler.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

    Samsung is partnering with chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries to increase the supply of low-power, high-speed chips for smartphones and tablets. GlobalFoundries has licensed Samsungs 14-nanometer FINFET chip making process, which is used to manufacture 3D transistors. Those transistors will allow GlobalFoundries to make chips that are 20 percent faster and use 35 percent less power than chips made using its current 20-nanometer technology, the companies said. GlobalFoundries doesnt use the chips itself. Its a foundry supplier, which means it makes chips for other companies that outsource their chip production, such as Advanced Micro Devices, Nvidia and Qualcomm.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

The pre-1972 recordings are played on some of the most popular stations on Pandora, including 50s Rock n Roll, 60s Oldies, Motown, Doo-Wop and Classic Soul, the RIAA said.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
