25 Sep 2014 by Chris Edwards

Everyone in the silicon business loves the Maker community right now. In his keynote at IDF, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich was keen to get the message across that the chip giant really wanted to get its Edison SoC and other devices into the hands of people tinkering with technology.

Northern Finland pins hopes on 5G

25 Sep 2014 by Pelle Neroth

The Finns are in a bit of a funk at the moment. Because of EU sanctions against Russia - an important trading partner for Finland - the Finnish economy is expected to contract this year. Finnish politicians feel betrayed by the sale of Nokia's handsets division to Microsoft. To cap it all, the snows in Finland are early this year, possibly presaging a long winter. Will a new technology initiative in the Arctic North cheer them up a little?

Jack's Blog: August, guest authored by Carter

Back To School

17 Sep 2014 by Dickon Ross

The three little words every school child dreads but are as inevitable as the falling of autumn leaves. And they seem to be coming earlier every year. I avoid the shops displaying Back To School banners in June just as I avoid those with Christmas decorations in September. So, out of sensitivity to readers' school age relatives, we waited for kids to actually go back to school. Now they are back, most will find a lot has changed over the summer. Many won't recognise their ICT lessons, for example.

Back to work

1 Sep 2014 by Francis Goode

The first question the Goode father always greets me is, how is work going? To which your humble blogger always replies, which work do you mean? The tasks performed during office hours for money, or the studies and writing done for love that take up the remaining wakeful hours? Of course, he means the former since, like most other people, he's firmly of the school that considers that work can only be what's done for money. Everything else is leisure or recreation.
