Microsoft new eXtreme Computing Group (XCG) the need to balance the heavy transformation

It is always a need for a company’s R&D to face the profound changes and implement an innovative development according to the requirement, and when it is concerned about computing, of course a hefty and dramatic changes and so enter Microsoft's new eXtreme Computing Group.

The increasing use of multicore chips and the move to huge facilities hosting data in the cloud have created an environment, in which bold new approaches are needed.

Microsoft new eXtreme Computing Group (XCG)
Which was formed in June with the goal: Develop radical new approaches to ultra-scale and high-performance computing hardware and software,

Variety of cutting-edge computing efforts:
•    security
•    cryptography
•    operating-system design
•    parallel-programming models
•    cloud software
•    data center architectures
•    specialty hardware accelerators
•    quantum computing

Corporate vice president of XCG Dan Reed says that, the group will help develop radical new approaches to building hardware and software, it's an "intentional R&D group" that sits between basic research and product development, funneling ideas from Microsoft Research into product teams across the company.

In addition to contributing code and building prototypes, Reed and his team of researchers, engineers, and developers will pursue outcome-driven research and development.  The objective is to look at strategic needs and opportunities that cut across product groups and find technology solutions to those problems added Reed.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…

How to Automatically Convert any RSS Feed to an iPhone Web app!

For iPhone users this is another web app which converts any well formed XML RSS feed to an iPhone version. It is possible because it is worked with the typical sliding style interface to suit the iPhone optimized version. For instance if you had the iPhone right now here is the Google News Feed




Jim Liddle, one of the creators of the service, told iPhone Atlas “You can book mark the generated site and use it to host your own content and reference it from your own. It seems that these feed on your iPhone is quiet usable.
