Intel Developer Forum 2010 starts today in San Francisco. The city is decorated from the airport to downtown with banners and ads by Intel with clever catch phrases like “Sponsors of Tomorrow,” “Shake hand with the future” and “Big thinkers, welcome home.” Today is the first of a three day event designed to introduce some new products, technologies and innovation from Intel Corporation and some of its industry partners. The aim is also to gather around “big thinkers” programmers, developers, engineers and designers and encourage them to innovate [with Intel ingredients of course]. On the agenda are some keynotes from the likes of Intel’s CEO, Paul Otellini and others as well as numerous technology showcases, technical sessions, classes and chats.
IDF is hosted at the Moscone Convention Center with special activity stations set up that include Poster Chats, Intel’s Smart TV Pavilion, Wireless Display Zone and an Advanced Technology Zone. Some of the announcements we are expecting are:
Axel Technologies: introduces Fuugo and showcases how Fuugo unites live Broadcast TV with Internet TV. Fuugo is the first TV application for personalizing a content stream by blending content choices from broadcast, mobile, and Internet TV. It utilizes social media, recommendations, and various content sources to create a stream that matches the viewer’s interests.
Fresco Logic and American Megatrends Inc (AMI): come together to deliver the industry’s first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI 1.0 Solution
Ocosmos and Intel: team up to bring us the “New World’s Mobile PC” – what they call the TC (Tiny Computer). This is a mobile PC designed to be as powerful as a desktop PC and run desktop-class games and applications. The new OCS1’s CPU supports 3D graphics and allows players to run games like Starcraft II and World of Warcraft. They also invented a new technology replaces the need for a keyboard and mouse.
Another biggie is the release of the new version of Intel Parallels Studio , expected to launch tomorrow.
