One of the mantras of computing and just about anything data related is "**We only lose what we don't backup**" but some are taking offense that this is still the current state of computing today. Recently some owners call this out as "blaming the user", "you're holding it wrong" or snobby. Everyone I know will try their best to help you get your machine back in working order even if people say such things. They've lost it all and upset that they can't get their stuff back. Last week's example was another smart phone, forgot their password, unlock code and …

Its been a while since I've posted,but within this time period I've discovered a controversy that still leaves me unconfirmed.All the modifications to my ACPI x86 system have been done under my original warranty of 3 years, but all I wanted to know is why and for who.I can't say for who to prevent more problems however I've confirmed for myself that the environmental variables in the systems variables are intended for the virtualization situation that has me very concerned if I'm hindering the Industry. A Bel Arc audit of my computer showed that my device roles are that of …

Basically i'm looking at doing a computer science degree then going on to work in the IT industry. I was wondering what the best languages to know are as i really cannot be bothered learning loads. Trying to limit it to maybe 3 or 4 with a decent knowledge of each. Put simply i'm asking "What are the most common and effective languages used in industry?" Thanks for your replies

So basically i've been thinking really about the different programming languages as i have been looking at computer science courses at university. A lot of the courses use java as their main programming language. It got me thinking, is Java the future of programming and if so why? I am aware that it can be a slow programming language which is why some programmers choose not to use it, so why are so many computer science courses (who are training the IT professionals of tomorrow) teaching it? All comments welcome. Just trying to get an idea of peoples views towards …

I am a budding game programmer trying to get into the industry programming for PS3, Xbox 360. The main problem I see is the need to demonstrate my skills to a potential employer, but without access to Dev kits for the PS3 or Xbox 360, doing this directly is impossible. My question is, what is the best alternative way to show console developers my skills? C++ programming in DirectX for Windows seems close to showing Xbox 360 programming skills, and C++ programming in OpenGL seems relatively close to showing PS3 programming skills. Unfortunately, it seems from web research as if …

John Tu is the President and Co-founder of Kingston Technology which just happens to be one of the biggest providers of memory products on the planet, so when he talks about trends and developments in the memory market a lot of people start listening. Especially when he does so against a backdrop of a global economic downturn that has hit the tech industry hard. "Too many companies producing memory chips have caused prices to fall over the last months and consolidation should help the industry correct itself" Tu admits. However, when it comes to those companies that can weather the …

American chip maker [URL="http://www.freescale.com"]Freescale Semiconductor[/URL] has today announced the development of a magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM) chip which can maintain data using magnetic properties and not the traditional electrical charge methodology. Think of it in terms of storing data more like a hard drive, albeit a very small one indeed, and you are on the right conceptual tracks. Unlike flash memory, MRAM does not degrade over time, does not need any power in order to store the data and is lightning quick when it comes to read/write speeds. Think in terms of nanoseconds in fact! Each MRAM chip is comprised …
